PS Plus Extra and Premium games lineup for December 2023

  • PS Plus Extra and Premium games will be available Tuesday, December 19, 2023
  • Grand Theft Auto V comes for PS5 and PS4 to celebrate the GTA VI announcement
  • PS Plus Premium is getting Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2
The PlayStation Blog has brought us the latest batch of 19 games for PS5 and PS4 coming for PS Plus Extra and Premium players. The highlight is most obviously Grand Theft Auto V for PS5 and PS4, which comes to celebrate the GTA Online The Chop Shop and the Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer. It leads the line of 14 new PS Plus Extra games.
Also included on PS Plus Extra is Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. The PlatinumGames developed title is maybe one of the most bizarre games of recent years, featuring anime lads messing around with swords while listening to Limp Bizkit. A while ago, we guessed that Metal Hellsinger and TinyKin would be the Xbox Game Pass leaving games coming to PS Plus, and here they are!

We have five Classic Catalog games coming to PS Plus Premium in December 2023. In the PS Plus Premium leak November 2023, we got the hint that PSP's Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Thrillville Off the Rails, and Thrillville would be on the way. Well, they've arrived alongside the superb Mega Man Legacy Collection games for PS4. Some good stuff, some decidedly weird stuff... a classic PS Plus Premium month!
Here are all the PS Plus Extra and Premium games for December 2023.

PS Plus Essential monthly games lineup for December 2023

Lego 2K Drive, PowerWash Simulator, and Sable are your PS Plus Essential games for December 2023. The normal cadence is in full flow for this month's PS Plus dates as all three will arrive on Tuesday, December 5, 2023, for PS5 and PS4, with Sable being for PS5-only game.

As always, your three PS Plus Essential games will remain in your library of games so long as you keep a PS Plus subscription. So, you should add these PS5 and PS4 titles to your library just in case you want to play them in the future.

Here are your write-ups for the three PS Plus Essential monthly games for December 2023.

Lego 2K Drive

  • Platform(s): PS5, PS4
  • Lego 2K Drive time to platinum: 50+ hours
  • Lego 2K Drive trophy difficulty: 3/10
Having released in May of this year, maybe we should be wondering quite how we've wound up getting access to those Lego 2K Drive trophies so early. Let's just hope that doesn't speak to the game's quality, at least! Let's just throw these thoughts out of the window and just enjoy some time spinning around Bricklandia, shall we?

It's an open-world racer with a story mode and collectibles aplenty. Our colleague Tom thought the game was good fun, particularly while playing with his son. So, if you have family or just love Lego and cars, this will be a decent pickup!

Powerwash Simulator

  • Platform(s): PS5, PS4
  • Powerwash Simulator time to platinum: 50+ hours
  • Powerwash Simulator trophy difficulty: 5/10
Sometimes, you just have to sit back and laugh at the popularity of some games. In this case, we're laughing at the fact that so many people are going to adore picking up a hose and trying to polish off some PowerWash Simulator trophies.

I mean, you'll be cleaning loads of stuff and really enjoying it because it is a fun and wacky title under that surface-level grime. I don't know that much more needs saying because you might have heard of this one after it launched into mega popularity via Xbox Game Pass. Seriously, if you think it is silly, give it a go!

Sable

  • Platform(s): PS5
  • Sable time to platinum: 20 hours
  • Sable trophy difficulty: 3/10
Another huge hit for the Team in Green's service, Sable is an open-world indie game that has puzzles and adventure in equal measure. With a totally unique art style, we think you might end up getting properly sucked into collecting Sable trophies as its show-don't-tell gameplay fully immerses you.

The protagonist is making her way through ancient deserts filled with ruins and downed craft as part of a ceremonial building. It has a stunning soundtrack and a super interesting concept, so Sable would be our pick of the bunch here. It's interesting, unique, and full of that wonder you get when you play something that you know could only be done in a video game.

So, what do you think of the lineup? Would any make the underrated PS5 games on PS Plus list? What are your predictions? Let us know all down below, and we will see you there!
