Sony has announced December’s line-up of free games on PlayStation Plus. This month's free titles are Worms Rumble, Rocket Arena, and Just Cause 4. These latest games will be available on the service until January 4, 2021.

First up is Worms Rumble, developed by Team17 Digital deals in “intense, real-time, arena-based 32 player cross-platform combat.” As players battle across maps with an arsenal of weaponry from baseball bats, hand cannons to assault rifles, with cross-play enabled online multiplayer, Worms Rumble is due to launch on December 1 across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.

Then we move onto Rocket Arena, a 3v3 multiplayer shooter from Bellevue-based studio Final Strike Games, released in July 2020 across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. “Rockets rule everything in Rocket Arena, an explosive 3v3 shooter where you’re never out of the action.” the game’s description reads.

Lastly, there’s Just Cause 4, released back in 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Developed by Avalanche Studios - the team also known for 2015’s Mad Max, RAGE 2, and last year’s Generation Zero - the fourth installment in the series sees Rico Rodriguez tackle another oppressive regime in the South American continent of Solis, terrible weather conditions and some equally poor graphics. That being said, it’s a hell of a laugh, and not short of things to blow up.

Currently, Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition and Middle-earth: Shadow of War is available from the PS Store until November 30, while the PS5 version of Bugsnax is available on the service, expiring on January 4.

Elsewhere for Sony fans, it's been a difficult week for those looking to upgrade to the PS5. Sony’s CEO, Jim Ryan, confirmed in an interview yesterday that all PlayStation 5 stock had sold out, during what he described as “an unusual, strange and frankly rather difficult year.” 

“Everything is sold. Absolutely everything is sold. And everything will be sold in Russia, there’s no doubt about that.”
