PlayStation Plus Games for February 2023 Revealed
The slate of complimentary PlayStation Plus games for February 2023 have been revealed over on the PlayStation Blog. Four games are on the docket for Essential subscribers this month, a change-up from the usual three offerings on gratis. The selection is quite a bit more varied, as well, with the lineup including Evil Dead: The Game, OlliOlliWorld, Mafia: The Definitive Edition, and Destiny 2: Beyond Light.
The games will be available starting February 7 for all PlayStation Plus members, Essential, Extra, and Premium. Fans can pick them up until March 6, when a new lineup will hit the service. Subscribers can still pick up January 2023's offerings until February 7, which include Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Fallout 76, and Axiom Verge 2.
PlayStation Plus February 2023 Games Lineup
Evil Dead: The Game (PS4/PS5)
Evil Dead: The Game is a 4v1 asymmetric multiplayer game where you'll play one of several iconic characters from the cult-classic franchise, all in an effort to survive against another player controlling a Kandarian Demon hell-bent on your destruction. We called it "just groovy enough" to be a good time with friends, but a bit lacking in the single-player department. Either way, it nails the Evil Dead vibe, providing "some of the best Evil Dead fan service ever."
OlliOlli World (PS4/PS5)
OlliOllie World released exactly one year ahead of it being included as one of February 2023's complimentary PlayStation Plus games. Well-received by critics and fans alike, this high-octane platformer sees you skateboarding toward Gnardvana. While we didn't play it ourselves when it released in early 2022, our friends at Destructoid rated it an 8.5, and the good folks at Prima gave it a solid 9, making it well-worth a look in our book.
Mafia: Definitive Edition (PS4)
Mafia: Definitive Edition launched in 2020 and is a remake of the 2022 action adventure game from 2K. A focused, story-driven single-player experience in an open world, the Definitive Edition rebuilds the city of Lost Heaven from the ground up. In our review, we said that the Definitive Edition takes a compelling, nuanced approach to its writing and provides a "rich atmosphere" to play in, even if the world can feel a bit empty at times, and the actual shooting stiff.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light (PS4/PS5)
Destiny 2: Beyond Light is surely part of February 2023's PlayStation Plus games lineup to help prepare new players (or those who've been away from Bungie's shooter for a while) for the impending release of Destiny 2: Lightfall on February 28. Including a new story line, the Stasis subclass, and a number of other additions, tweaks, and balances, Beyond Light is a great place to start or re-start your D2 journey in 2023. Giving it an 8/10 in our review, we said that "you can and will spend hours and hours discovering everything Beyond Light has to offer." Which is quite a bit.
Those are the PlayStation Plus games for February 2023. Remember: be sure to pick up January's complimentary games before February 7, when these games will take their place. Stay tuned for more reveals for the Sony service in the future, such as the closure of the PS Plus Collection.
