PS Plus December Games
- Mortal Shell (PS4)
- Lego DC Super-Villains (PS4)
- Godfall Challenger Edition (PS5/PS4)
All three titles will be available on PS4, with Godfall: Challenger Edition also receiving a PS5 version. The December PS Plus games will be available to claim between December 7 and January 3. They replace the November games: Knockout City, First Class Trouble, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. All of those are still available through December 6. Download any before the availability expires and they'll be yours to keep forever. Subscribers can find the PS Plus games for December by accessing the PlayStation Store through their console.
First up we have Mortal Shell, a solid Dark Souls inspired fantasy action RPG. A debut title from developer Cold Symmetry, the game features an impressively complex combat system, brutally tough world, and suitably grim aesthetic for players to grind through. The player controls various class archetype shells, and will need to master the game’s hardening mechanic – no chuckles, please – to block enemy attacks and open up foes.
Unfortunately, Mortal Shell’s world is its biggest letdown. Confusing to navigate and filled with health-spong enemies, the world can prove tiresome to explore or navigate when compared to the Souls’ games carefully crafted environments. For die-hard Souls fans hungry for more before Elden Ring, however, it’s well worth a look.
Next is Lego DC Super-Villains. If you’ve played any of the many other Lego titles, you’ll know the gist of this co-operative action adventure. A 2018 release, DC Super-Villains puts you in control of classic baddies like the Joker, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy. The setup sees the Justice League having vanished, and a strange group known as the Justice Syndicate having appeared in their place. Players can create their own Super-Villain to wreak havoc with while they uncover the truth behind the Justice Syndicate.
Finally, and easily the most confusing of all, is Godfall: Challenger Edition. Rather than grant players access to the full version of Godfall, this PS Plus offering is a brand new version which dumps players into the endgame of the looter-slasher. Challenger Edition includes three game modes: Lightbringer, Dreamstones, and the Ascended Tower, granting players powerful tools to overcome the enemies they’ll face. If you enjoy the game, you can upgrade to the Deluxe Edition to access the Godfall and Fire & Darkness campaigns.
PSVR owners should also note that three Virtual Reality games remain available to download for PS Plus subscribers. The Persistence, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, and Until You Fall will be available to download until January 3.
