Sony has also announced that the PlayStation Plus Collection, a library of 20 PS4 games that subscribers can play on PS5, will be retiring in May.

January’s PlayStation Plus Essential games are Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS5/PS4), Fallout 76 (PS4) and Axiom Verge 2 (PS5/PS4). Subscribers can claim them until February 7th.

Essential is the entry-level PlayStation Plus membership, giving subscribers access to a few “free” games each month.

Players can continue to play those games even if they become unclaimed at the end of the monthly period, as long as they continue to subscribe to PlayStation Plus Essential (or higher).

Once their membership ends, they will no longer be able to play those games unless they sign up again.

PlayStation Plus subscribers to the Extra and Premium tiers also get access to a library of downloadable PS4 and PS5 titles. New additions to the games catalog for January included Back 4 Blood, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, Life is Strange, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Jett: The Far Shore and Just Cause 4 Reloaded.

PlayStation Plus Premium also offers members a selection of downloadable PS1, PS2 and PSP games, as well as PS3 games via cloud streaming. The January additions to the Classics catalog were Siphon Filter 3 (PS1), Star Wars Demolition (PS1) and Hot Shots Golf 2 (PS1).
