Sometimes they include new titles, while other times, they surprise everyone by adding a popular first-party exclusive from the past.
And for PS Plus December 2021, gamers believe they might choose to add another new game to the mix.
The past two months have already seen this happen, with Hell Let Loose and First Class Trouble offered as free games in October and November,
So could it be possible that Heavenly Bodies will be the next new game to make its debut via PlayStation Plus?
Fans are looking at this title as a serious contender for inclusion based on its release date, which has been set for December 7.
This is a special date in the PS Plus calendar as this will be the date Sony releases its next waves of PlayStation Plus games.
So there’s a slim chance that, like First Class Trouble, Heavenly Bodies will be available to download and play on its release date too.
It should be noted that neither Sony nor developers 2pt Interactive have announced such a deal and this should be treated as a fan theory for now.
For those who aren’t as familiar with it, Heavenly Bodies is a game about cosmonauts, the body, and the absence of gravity.
According to the development team, you move the limbs of a weightless, physically simulated space engineer (or two, in local co-op) to assemble and maintain structures and systems aboard a rickety space station.
Your assigned tasks will often appear straightforward, but without gravity to keep you grounded, even the most mundane requests will require serious coordination.
A recent blog post from 2pt Interactive adds: “With a game that quite literally requires you to feel your way through the environments, you can only imagine our excitement with the opportunity to use the features of the DualSense controller.
“With the triggers used to grasp your cosmonaut’s hands and a chaotic, zero-g environment where bumps and thumps are inevitable, it made so much sense for us to use the adaptive triggers and haptic functions to transport you into the floppy suit you see on screen.
“The best way to play Heavenly Bodies is by using your cosmonaut’s hands. You’ll need to grip with the triggers to grab onto objects and to push yourself off walls. The DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers are remarkable at communicating what objects and surfaces are within your cosmonaut’s grasp.
“For example, when doing some weeding in the oxygen garden, you’ll feel the delicate stalkiness of dry plants compared to the thick, hard metal framework of the station.”
The first PlayStation Plus games are expected to be announced around December 1, meaning we still have a little way to go until we find out if this latest prediction is correct.
