January 2023 PS+ Games: Conquering Space with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Axiom Verge 2


Like every month, PlayStation+ subscribers will have right to free games. And this year 2023 starts in style, since Sony will offer the Electronic Arts game based on the famous Star Wars license released in November 2019 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. A kind of preamble to make players salivate before the arrival of its sequel, Star Wars Jedi: SurvivorMarch 17, 2023.

Fallen Order takes place after the events of Episode III and the establishment of Order 66 calling for the extermination of all living Jedi. You follow the story of Cal Kestis, the last Jedi padawan and therefore the Force’s last hope for survival. You will have to continue Jedi training by wielding the Force and the lightsaber while remaining in the shadows so as not to be found by the minions of the Empire. A true work in its own right from the Star Wars universe, available on PS4 and PS5, described as “a great Star Wars single player game” in the test of Gamekult available here.

The game developed by Respawn Entertainment is accompanied by two other less remarkable titles. The first is not discreet by its quality, quite the contrary, but rather by its production. Axiom Verge 2 is the product of one man, Thomas Happ, both developer and publisher of his own franchise. Like many nostalgic people, he has set himself the task of resuscitating, as best he can, the license Metroid with its pixels, its 2D graphics and its unique environment. In this platform game like no other, you will explore two worlds by wielding forgotten technologies. If the first part wanted metroid-likeGamekult describes this opus as Castlevania in the Metroidor “metroidvania”. Time travel guaranteed for PS4 and PS5 owners. Find the Gamekult test here.

The second game stands out for its mediocrity. If you never say no to a free game, Fallout 76 is clearly to be put on the third step of this selection as it puts the license to shame. A postapocalyptic game made of odds and ends so as not to throw away the multiplayer fiasco that was Fallout 76 at its output. Unworthy of the two excellent previous opuses, Fallout 76 will leave a warm, pre-masticated taste despite a few rare flashes of genius. Saved by its atmosphere and its music, Fallout 76 still worth a slight detour, especially since you’ll only pay with your time and PS4 owners will be lucky enough to have it as an exclusive.
