PlayStation Plus Essential free games for November 2023

PlayStation has announced the free games coming to the PS Plus Essential tier in November 2023.

Essential is the base tier of Sony’s subscription service. It allows gamers to play online, use cloud saves and claim three or more games a month that can be accessed as long as a subscription is active. (This means you can let your subscription lapse, get Plus again and regain access to any claimed games.)

From Tuesday, November 7, three games will be available for free in the PS Plus Essential tier.

First, there’s Aliens: Fireteam Elite (PS5/PS4). This 2021 third-person shooter aims to replicate the gung-ho testosterone-fuelled action of James Cameron’s sequel rather than the horror of Alien: Isolation.

There’s a fair amount of story to blast through, and reviews recommend you play co-op (online only, sadly).

There’s also Mafia II: Definitive Edition (PS4), a remaster of a PS3 game.

Although reviews criticised the game for various bugs at launch, fans seem to reckon that audio and trophy issues are now fixed.

The game also won a Guinness World Record back in the day for the most F-bombs in a video game, so it’s a piece of history, in a way.

Finally, there’s Dragon Ball: The Breakers (PS4), which combines Dead by Daylight‘s ‘survivors vs killers’ gameplay with Akira Toriyama’s legendary manga and anime characters.

The game hitting PS Plus Essential as a free title comes shortly after the announcement of a brand-new series in the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball: Daima.

While the line-up for Essential is rather low-key this month, perhaps Sony is saving some big hitters for December — or potentially Extra and Premium later this month. We’ll be sure to update you when Sony announces what’s coming next.
