Nine free PS4 games with PS+

Last Updated: July 25, 2013


Hands up if you’re familiar with Playstation Plus, Sony’s answer to Xbox Live Gold? What it basically does is give you instant access to download 12 free games for the PS3 and six for the Playstation Vita (which you can store and play as long as you are a PS+ member). In addition new (free) downloadable games are added each month, which you can add to your collection, and you also get discounts of between 10%-75% off purchases made on the Playstation Store. In a change from the current-gen PS3 regime, you’ll also need a Playstation Plus subscription in order to play your PS4 online.

Sony has already said that PS+ memberships will be carrying across to the Playstation 4, but what can we expect in terms of free games? Sony definitely doesn’t want to be giving away half the launch lineup for free now does it!?

The answer is the following: you’ll get the games listed below instantly upon launch. As you can see a number of free-to-play titles are included, plus a few smaller games from indie developers. DriveClub: PS+ edition (a “full” retail game) will also be slightly restricted in that certain tracks and cars won’t be included (you’ll be able to purchase them separately though). Following the PS4’s launch, one retail game will also be downloadable for free, and storable in your game collection, each month.
