UPDATE: The Games Are Arriving TODAY!
In an incredible month for PS Plus, PS5 owners get two games, as well as a PS4 title.
As of February 2, players can jump into Destruction AllStars on PS5, Control: Ultimate Edition on PS4 or PS5, and Concrete Genie on PS4 (playable via backward compatibility).
As per Sony's blog:
"Entertain the crowds by bringing controlled chaos to the vehicular combat arena of this metal-crunching multiplayer game*. Pick one of 16 superstar competitors, then leap into four game modes, using timing, tactics and skills to cause carnage behind the wheel or create havoc with your parkour skills."
"Perfect your character’s abilities – including a hero vehicle unique to them – to give you the edge in free-for-all battles or team challenges and become Global Destruction Federation Champion. The game also supports PS5’s Game Help feature**, giving you hints and tips to become the ultimate destructive machine without the need to leave the game."
Control: Ultimate Edition
"Master supernatural abilities and wield a shape-shifting sidearm in this third-person action-adventure from Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake). Take on the role of Jesse Faden, Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, whose New York headquarters are breached by an ominous enemy. Despite outward appearances, the skyscraper’s interior is vast and ever-shifting. You’ll need to explore – and weaponize – this unpredictable environment to clean house and repel the invaders."
"The Ultimate Edition includes the base game as well as The Foundation and AWE expansions."
"Pick up a magic paintbrush and return the polluted town of Denska to its former bright and bustling seaside self in this touching and multi-award-winning action-adventure."
Cleanse streets and alleyways, then use your Living Paint to create mischievous Genies whose magical powers will aid you in overcoming puzzles and seeing off bullies who pursue you. The game also includes two additional modes built especially for PS VR to let you further unleash your creativity."
Original Story Follows:
2021 is here, and while we're still enjoying January's PlayStation Plus games, we're starting to look towards February for our next batch of freebies.
This month, players can enjoy Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Greedfall on PS4, while PS5 owners can play both via backwards compatibility and also play Maneater.

When will PS Plus February 2021 free games be confirmed?
We imagine that most Sony PlayStation fans will know how this works, however, for the sake of anyone who might be new to the PlayStation ecosystem, here's a quick explainer.
Traditionally PS Plus games have always been announced on the last Wednesday of the month at 4.30 pm on the dot.
The announced titles then become available to download from the PSN store on the first Tuesday of the month.
Some months this means the games arrive a bit earlier. But some months, it means there's a slightly longer wait than normal.
Due to the way the days have fallen in the month, Sony will likely announce the PS Plus February 2020 free games lineup on Wednesday, January 27th.
At that point, the games should become available to download on the first Tuesday of the month from the PSN store. Meaning the new games should go live on February 2nd.
Formerly intended to be a launch title for PS5, Destruction AllStars is now set to join the PS Plus lineup for February.
Offering a mix of vehicular combat and on-foot mayhem. Check out the trailer below:
