GreedFall, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Maneater (PS5)
As disappointing as it was to see Sony stop giving out PS3 and Vita games as a PlayStation Plus perk last year, I have to say, I’m liking the recent “two PS4 games and a PS5 bonus” push. It helps a lot.
The January 2021 PlayStation Plus lineup follows that trio format again with Shadow of the Tomb Raider (the third title in Square Enix’s modern Lara Croft trilogy), GreedFall (a flawed RPG gem from Spiders), and the PS5 version of Maneater (a silly fish-, gator-, and human-chomping action game). Not bad.
You’ll be able to redeem these games on the PlayStation Store beginning January 5. Reminder: you can (and should!) claim PS5-only PS Plus games even if you don’t own a PlayStation 5. Stockpile away!
Maneater is also available on PS4 – there’s even a free PS5 upgrade for owners – but this particular PlayStation Plus giveaway only covers the PS5 copy, so that’s all you can play. No funny business.
Did any of you just buy any of these in a sale? Always happens to someone.
