First Class Trouble, a social deduction game, was published on Steam Early Access earlier this year, with a PS4 and PS5 port confirmed afterward. First Class Trouble is the first confirmed title for November 2021’s PS Plus roster, so players won’t have to wait long.
The social deduction game has been one of the most popular gaming trends this year. These games, made popular by Among Us, tasked players with accomplishing objectives while actively striving to survive against and identify a killer in their midst.
In fact, social deduction has become so popular that other games are starting to include game modes that provide comparable experiences, such as Fortnite’s Imposters mode, which was just approved by Among Us. A leak for next month’s PS Plus games revealed First Class Trouble, and it appears that the leak was correct.
First Class Trouble will be one of the free PS Plus titles for PS4 and PS5 in November 2021, according to Sony’s current State of Play. The game takes place in a future, art-deco space station, where six Residents must try to flee, albeit it won’t be easy because two of them are Personoids, human-like robots entrusted with preventing the Residents.
It’s a game of trust, as with other social deduction games, because there are moments when numerous players are required to continue through a specific route, allowing Personoids to potentially win over other players before stabbing them in the back. Invisible Walls and Versus Evil are working on First Class Trouble.
Since First Class Trouble was discovered in the recent PS Plus game leak, there’s a good chance the rest of the games will be revealed as well. Knockout City and Kingdom of Amalur: Re-Reckoning are rumored to be joining First Class Trouble, with the former being an addictive, cartoonish dodgeball game and the latter being a remaster of the original action role-playing game from 2012.
In addition, Sony will give free VR games to PS Plus users in honor of PS VR’s 5th anniversary starting in November. According to the leak, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is one of the titles included.
If the other suspected titles prove out to be genuine, next month’s PS Plus game selection will have something for everyone. Whereas Among Us criticized Fortnite for its lack of creativity in its Imposters mode, First Class Trouble appears to be a very different take on the social deduction genre, from its graphics to its gameplay mechanics.
There’s a lot of variety in free games to play when you combine this potential with a more competitive, arcade-style game in Knockout City, a single-player RPG in Kingdom of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, and a scary VR experience in The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners.
