What are this month's free PlayStation Plus games?

What is PlayStation Plus?

Unlike the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 requires users to subscribe to Sony's PlayStation Plus service in order to play most games online. Paying for something that used to be free might not sound particularly appealing, but Sony makes up for it by offering a hearty selection of free PS3, PS4, and PS Vita games to PlayStation Plus subscribers every single month.

With the current generation of consoles so reliant on Internet connectivity, investing in a premium PlayStation Network account is something definitely worth considering. While it is free to sign up for the Network and get some basic functionality, PlayStation Plus delivers the premium access you really want.

In particular, a PlayStation Plus subscription allows you to play your games online against your friends. With more and more games emphasising their online multiplayer modes, PlayStation Plus is becoming increasingly necessary for getting the most out of your console.

PlayStation Plus membership plans

PlayStation Plus recently underwent a name change and is now called PlayStation Plus Essential. This is to differentiate it from two new versions of the PlayStation Plu service in Australia.

PlayStation Plus Extra is a new, premium version of PlayStation Plus. This includes all the same perks as the base service, plus an additional 400 PS4 and PS5 games that you can download and play at no extra charge. A subscription to PlayStation Plus Extra will set you back $134.95 per year or $18.95 on a per-month basis.

Finally, there's PlayStation Plus Deluxe. This is identical to PlayStation Plus Extra but with the addition of a classic library of PlayStation games from the PS3, PS2 and PS1 era. It also includes game trials. It costs $154.95 per year and $21.95 per month, respectively.

"Free" games

While it would be nice to play online for free, there's no denying Sony packs a lot of value into each PlayStation Plus membership. In addition to the online multiplayer, PlayStation Plus subscribers get 2 free games every month for the PS4.

These range from full AAA titles like Until Dawn and NBA 2K16 to smaller indie experiences like Gone Home and Not a Hero.

Once you add these games to your PlayStation account, they are yours to play for as long as you maintain your PlayStation Plus subscription. If you don't add them to your library during the month they are free, though, you'll miss out entirely.

PlayStation Plus subscribers also enjoy an exclusive PlayStation Plus discount on select games and video content available through the PlayStation Store. These range from 10% off pre-orders and new releases to massive PlayStation Plus-only sales with games discounted by as much as 90%.

Better yet, any discounted games you buy with your PlayStation Plus membership will remain in your account even if you cancel your membership.

Key PlayStation Plus features

  1. The ability to enjoy online multiplayer.
  2. 2 free games per month for the PS4.
  3. Exclusive PlayStation Plus discounts on the PlayStation Store.
  4. Access to Share Play, a feature where your friends can play your games remotely, even if they don't own the game themselves.
  5. 10GB of online storage space for PS4 game save files.
  6. 1GB of online storage space for PS3 game save files.
  7. 1GB of online storage space for Vita game save files.
  8. The opportunity to join in on regular community events.
  9. Access to a library of classic UEFA Champions League games.

How much does PlayStation Plus cost in Australia?

There are 3 PlayStation Plus price tiers to consider, but the exact same features are offered in each – it is only the term of the subscription that changes. Like most services, the longer you sign up for in advance, the less you end up paying in the long run. Unless you're particularly tight for cash, we recommend going for the full 12-month subscription. If you're like most subscribers, once you've enjoyed the benefits of PlayStation Plus discounts and free games every month, you'll never look back. However, before you buy, be sure to keep an eye out for deals through the various retailers as discounts can often be found.

Can I try PlayStation Plus for free?

If you haven't subscribed to PlayStation Plus before, you can take advantage of the PlayStation Plus free trial to test out the service for 14 days at no cost. You can register for the PlayStation Plus free trial through the PlayStation Store, but you'll need to add payment details to your PlayStation account if you haven't done so already.

How do I get my PlayStation Plus free games?

Once you've subscribed to PlayStation Plus, each month's free games will show up automatically on your console dashboard and in the PlayStation Store under the PlayStation Plus free games section. You will notice the price of these games is now free and you can "purchase" them to add them to your PlayStation library. They will remain playable for the life of your subscription, so you don't have to worry about them disappearing at the end of the month.

How does PlayStation Plus compare to competing services?

PlayStation Plus compares favourably against Microsoft's Xbox Live Gold service, coming in at $10 cheaper over the term of a year and offering more free games per month. That said, the Xbox Games with Gold program tends to offer more premium AAA titles in its monthly catalogue of free games, so there is a payoff to consider there. Nintendo has yet to implement its online service for the Nintendo Switch, but it plans to offer basic online multiplayer along with a couple of free classic games every month at a budget price of $29.95 for a year. However, the depth of the service and the catalogue of available and upcoming titles is not comparable to the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One.


However, these free games do come with a few caveats. PlayStation Plus subscribers must "purchase" a month's selection of games before that month is up. If they don't, they won't be able to go back and download those games at a later time. "Purchasing" in this case simply means loading up the PlayStation Store website, adding the free games to your cart, and checking out. It'll cost you nothing, and you'll then be able to download and play those games indefinitely, so long as you maintain an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
