To celebrate PSVR’s 5th anniversary, PlayStation is unveiling three VR games for an oversized PlayStation Plus range in November 2021.
The official line-up for PlayStation in November 2021 PS More games comprises a total of six games, two of the best known are Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning and Knockout City. To celebrate PSVR’s fifth anniversary, PlayStation Plus is offering three additional VR games with the standard trio of monthly additions. In October, PS Plus subscribers were able to download the golf simulation PGA 2K21, the multiplayer shooter Hell Let Loose and the fighting game Mortal Kombat X at no additional cost. These October games will be available for download until November 1st.
PS Plus has traditionally offered games for free since its launch in 2010. However, recent reports suggest that the service could grow in conjunction with Sony studio purchases. One such example is the anime streaming service Crunchyroll, which Sony bought for more than $ 1 billion. There have been rumors since then that Sony might add Crunchyroll to PlayStation Plus, but the company hasn’t made any statements on the matter at the time of writing. However, Sony is currently testing an expansion of PlayStation Plus with the PS Plus Video Pass in Poland.
A new post on the PlayStation blog officially reveals the six games that will appear in the PS Plus franchise in November 2021: Knockout City, First Class Trouble and Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, as well as the PSVR games The Persistence, The Walking Dead : Saints & Sinners and Until You Fall. Knockout City is a competitive multiplayer dodgeball game from EA, while the social deduction game First Class Trouble was shown on the newest PlayStation State of Play. The last of the standard three-game offerings is Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, a remaster of the original cult classic. Prior to Sony’s official announcement, all three PS Plus November games were leaked online, which happens regularly.
The PlayStation Plus titles, which will be released on November 2nd, will also be joined by three immersive #PSVR titles

Also mentioned in the PS Plus leak was The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, the first of the bonus PSVR titles. In the licensed game, players navigate a zombified New Orleans in the Walking Dead universe while facing walkers and untrustworthy people. It is accompanied by Until You Fall, a roguelite with hordes of enemies and hack-and-slash gameplay. Finally, The Persistence from the recently acquired by PlayStation Firesprite Studios rounds out the list of PSVR bonus games, immersing the user in a spaceship infested by mutant crew members. Each of these six games will be available from November 2nd. Availability for Knockout City, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning and First Class Trouble will end on December 6, but the three bonus PSVR games will be free to download for subscribers until January 3, 2022.
While Sony has seen a bit of a noticeable drop in subscribers lately, Sony is clearly still investing in PS More. The service’s free games can be a hit or miss, but PlayStation’s track record in 2021 was much better than in previous years. The following year could get even better, as many delayed 2021 games are set to be released in 2022, some of which could hit PS Plus or PS Now sometime after launch.
