Rumored PS Plus Free Games for December 2021 Explained

The PS Plus free games for December 2021 are in a bit of an interesting scenario. With the ways the date falls, they won’t be released until December 1, which isn’t technically later than normal but does fall on a later date than most are used to. Secondly, some believed Heavenly Bodies would be a PS Plus game, as its release date and pre-order status lined up.

However, that no longer seems to be the case. This rumor and prediction has been superseded by one that is more concrete. Dealabs has leaked basically every PS Plus free game selection for the past few months, and it has done so again for December. It should be taken with a grain of salt, but history backs up its claim that Godfall, Mortal Shell, and LEGO DC Super-Villains are December's PlayStation Plus games. The next step, of course, is asking what these games are.

PS Plus Free Game for December – Godfall

At launch, Godfall received mixed to average reviews, hitting roughly a 59 on PC and 61 on PS5 Metacritic score. Godfall’s high fantasy setting splits the game world into realms of Earth, Water, Air, and so on while players must, as last of the Knight’s Order, stop the apocalypse. The biggest attraction to Godfall is its Valorplates, which are based on the Zodiac. These Valorplates are almost similar to character classes, as they also influence their weapon classes. At launch, these included the longsword, dual blades, polearm, two-handed Warhammer, and two-handed greatsword.

Overall, it embraces a “looter-slasher” genre, its spin-off of the looter shooter genre, and has received a ton of support at launch. If someone avoided it due to Godfall’s reviews, it may be worth checking out, especially for those who love co-op (it supports up to 3 co-op players). Plus, if they do enjoy it, then there’s the Fire and Darkness expansion to check out.

PS Plus Free Game for December – Mortal Shell

Mortal Shell is a Soulslike and considered by many to be one of the best of the spin-off genre, receiving middling-to-positive reviews online at release. Mortal Shell is, like many Soulslikes, heavily based on combat, with players taking one of four shells that impact gameplay: Harros the Vassal, Solomon the Scholar, Tiel the Acolyte, and Eredim the Venerable.

Beyond combat, Mortal Shell aims to give a deeply emotional experience, a dark atmosphere, cryptic information, and the aforementioned challenging combat. Overall, Mortal Shell is great for PS Plus, Elden Ring, and Souls fans because it’s free, because it can be played to prepare for Elden Ring, and because it honors the Souls legacy quite well.

PS Plus Free Game for December – LEGO DC Super-Villains

For many, it’s easy on what to expect from LEGO games. LEGO DC Super-Villains doesn’t break the mold in terms of gameplay, meaning anyone who has played LEGO Batman or anything like that knows what to expect. However, it is the first game where a customized character is tied into the story as Villains reel from the disappearance of the Justice League and must fight another universe’s villains (who pretend to be heroes).

Including all DLC packs, LEGO DC Super-Villains features 270 characters to play as, each representing the abilities of the character involved. It also features many of the DC locations fans love, including Gotham City, Metropolis, Smallville, Arkham Asylum, Apokolips, Stryker’s Island, S.T.A.R. Labs, and far more. And, assuming this leak proves to be true, it rounds up a solid line-up to end PS Plus' year.
