Who doesn’t want to play as a killer shark?

PlayStation Plus subscribers are getting three great games to play in January: Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Greedfall and Maneater. There is a twist, however. Maneater is only available for PlayStation 5 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription - so PlayStation 4 owners are out of luck there. 

It’s really too bad, because Maneater looks like a lot of fun! The game lets you play as a shark throughout its life cycle, from being a small shark pup to a massive beast feared by land and ocean-dwellers alike. You get to explore a big open-world environment to find resources and evolve as a shark, perhaps even beyond what nature intended. 

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is also a great option for anyone who’s craving an Uncharted-like experience. This is the last game in Eidos-Montreal’s trilogy, depicting Lara Croft’s biggest adventure to date in South America. Croft will have to navigate perilous terrain and survive against overwhelming odds. All this to stop a Maya apocalypse, of course. Easy as pie!

Greedfall is a great-looking action-RPG that lets you explore strange new lands in a world filled with magic, secrets and dangerous creatures. You get to decide what abilities, spells and skills your character uses to gain the upper hand in battle, and how they navigate the story - be it with combat, diplomacy, deception or stealth. You also get to befriend new companions or betray them completely. 

These games are available to claim from January 5 to February 1, 2021. Go nuts!
