PS Plus December 2020 Offers Multiplayer Goodness With A Side Of Sandbox

Gamers will have three new games to look forward to in the PlayStation Plus December 2020 lineup. From 1 December 2020 to 4 January 2021, PS Plus subscribers will be able to redeem Worms Rumble, Rocket Arena, and Just Cause 4.

Worms Rumble

Developed by Team17, Worms Rumble is the latest instalment of the long-running Worms franchise. The last entry was previously 2016’s Worms: W.M.D. What’s interesting is that 2020 is also the 25th anniversary of the franchise.

Worms Rumble is turning away from the franchise’s traditional turn-based combat and introducing new real-time combat. The worms now move faster, and can even perform wall jumps to traverse at pace to get to higher ground and away from danger, as well as dodge those “incoming” bazooka shells and grenades.

The game will also support cross-play with a 32-player online experience and three game modes, including Deathmatch, Last Worm Standing, and Last Squad Standing. Last but not least, players will be able to customise their Worms.

Rocket Arena

Developed by Final Strike Games and published by EA, Rocket Arena is a 3v3 multiplayer hero shooter with a focus on rockets in gameplay. Players can try out a roster of fantastic heroes with distinctive rockets and abilities to rule the arena.

Just Cause 4

Just Cause 4 is the latest instalment of Avalanche Studios’ open-world sandbox franchise. Players can cause mayhem with a wide selection of weaponry, vehicles and gear as Rico Rodriguez skydives into the exotic climes of South America.

Also, non-PlayStation Plus members who own PS4 or PS5 games with active online multiplayer modes or features will be able to try them out for a limited time next month. The free online multiplayer weekend will run from midnight (local time) on 19 December 2020 to 11.59pm (local time) on 20 December 2020.

DISCLAIMER: It’s worth pointing out that these were announced by the official global PlayStation account. We’ll be sure to update this piece with PlayStation Asia’s lineup (if it’s different from this one) when they’re officially announced during the day tomorrow.
