Worms Rumble, Just Cause 4, and Rocket Arena are coming to PlayStation Plus subscribers on 1st December, Sony has announced.
Team17’s Worms Rumble has 32-player, cross-platform combat. Just Cause 4 is Avalanche’s December 2018 blow ’em-up (Donlan called it “likeably scrappy open-world carnage” in Eurogamer’s review), and Rocket Arena is EA’s colourful competitive multiplayer 3v3 shooter. All the games are available to play until Monday, 4th January.
While Rocket Arena was well-received, it struggled to get any attention in the crowded team-based shooter market when it launched in July, and its premium price-point plummeted soon after launch. In September, Rocket Arena’s 30-day average concurrent player count on Steam was just 71, which meant players were struggling to get games. Its release on PS Plus should give it a shot in the arm on PlayStation, though.
Meanwhile, non-PlayStation Plus members who own PS4 or PS5 games with active online multiplayer modes or features can try them out for a limited time next month. Sony is hosting a free online multiplayer weekend that runs from midnight on Saturday, 19th December until midnight on Sunday 20th December.
