The Bigger Game – Marvel’s Avengers
PS Plus Free Games Predictions
Last month for PS Plus, Sony gave subscribers three free games including Maneater, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Greedfall. While the offical list for February 2021 has yet to be revealed by Sony, we have some PS Plus predictions as to what those free games might be in the meantime.
Usually a larger game headlines the list, and for next month we suspect Marvel’s Avengers could be a likely inclusion.
Marvel’s Avengers didn’t actually release that long ago, coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC back in September 2020. Next gen versions of the game were then promised for free at launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but were delayed into 2021.
Square Enix reportedly lost a ton of money with the release of Marvel’s Avengers, stating a couple months ago the flop of its release aided in the company seeing a ¥6.5B loss.
It therefore seems likely for Sony and Square Enix to pair up and offer the PS5 version of the title for free upon release of the version sometime in early 2021.
Square Enix could then attempt to recoup some of the losses via DLC purchases spurred on by a larger playerbase getting the base game for free.
