In February 2023, subscribers to PS Plus Essential will again receive free games. This time, however, it takes a little longer for the new titles to be announced, as the unveiling will no longer take place at the end of January.
This is the date and time of the game reveal and unlock
Sony usually has a fixed time when the new bonus games are announced. If the date remains the same this month, this results in the following dates for the announcement and activation:
- estimated date: Wednesday February 1st, 2023*
- expected time: 5:30 p.m. (German time)**
- When will the new PS Plus Essential games be live? from Tuesday 7 February 2023
*Where does this date come from? The new PS Plus Essential games are usually unlocked on the first Tuesday of the month. The announcement will be made on Wednesday before. For this reason, the announcement will not be made until February 1, 2023 this time, as it falls on a Wednesday.
**5:30pm is Sony’s usual game reveal time. They are then usually available around 12 noon German time.
