PS Plus subscribers are getting three new games to download next week, including a fresh release on PS5 and PS4 platforms.
And it won’t be long before we find out what’s being planned for PlayStation Now, Sony’s other big subscription service.
Worms Rumble will be making its debut as a PlayStation Plus title in December, making for an interesting new multiplayer experience to try out.
For those who might have missed its earlier PS4 open beta test, Worms Rumble focuses on a real-time battle arena, rather than the standard franchise team action seen in previous games.
A message from developers Team17 adds: “This is Worms like you’ve never played it before, with intense, real-time, arena-based 32-player cross-platform combat!
“Use a variety of fan-favourite weapons like the Bazooka and Shotgun plus all-new additions to the armoury to bring the pain to your invertebrate opponents as you climb the ranks.
“Customise your worm, then take part in seasonal events, daily challenges and community collaborations for additional XP and rewards, and experimental game modes in The Lab.
“Get ready for Deathmatch and Battle Royale where you’re only ever a Holy Hand Grenade away from death.”
It appears that Worms Rumble on PS5 will be a fully-fledged next-gen version of the game, with Team17 confirming:
“Harnessing the megaton power of the PS5, we have created the first 4K Worms experience with full crossplay support. Play with friends on PS5, PS4 and PC at launch!”
And Worms Rumble won’t be the only free game to pick up in December, with Just Cause 4 and Rocket Arena also be offered as part of the official lineup.
Previous months have seen Sony reveal their PS Now plans soon after revealing its free games plans.
And the same is expected to happen this month, although there is no set date for when this reveal will occur.
In October, Sony confirmed its PlayStation Now game plans on the last Friday of the month.
If this happens again, we could find out what new PS4 games are being added to PS Now in December on November 27.
If we don’t get an update then, Sony will announce its plans on Tuesday, December 2, 2020.
