The first few games available in January’s PlayStation Plus program have been announced, and they’re some pretty good ones to boot. Persona 5 Strikers, Dirt 5, and Deep Rock Galactic will be joining the subscription service in the first part of January.
Persona 5 Strikers is essentially a Dynasty Warriors-type game, except with a Persona 5 veneer. A popular trend these days with games like Hyrule Warriors and Persona 5 Strikers, the Dynasty Warriors formula tends to be better received by critics when it isn’t in an actual Dynasty Warriors game. These games are hack-and-slash fests, and Persona 5 Strikers isn’t an exception.
Dirt 5 is an offroad rally racer that our review found pushes the series further into arcade racer territory. By all accounts, it’s a quality game and well worth a try if you’re a racing fan. Codemasters was really onto something with the latest entry in its offroad racing series.
