If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you already know that one of the biggest perks of the service is the free games. Every month, Sony offers up a selection of titles that are free to download and play for as long as you’re subscribed to PlayStation Plus.

But how exactly do you get your hands on these free games? In this article, we’ll walk you through the process step-by-step.

Step 1: Check Which Games Are Available

The first thing you’ll want to do is check which games are currently available for free. Sony typically announces the upcoming month’s free games a week or so before they become available, so keep an eye out for news and updates from PlayStation.

Step 2: Add the Games to Your Library

Once the new batch of free games has been announced, it’s time to start adding them to your library. To do this, simply log in to your PlayStation account and head to the PlayStation Plus section of the PlayStation Store. From there, you should be able to see all of the currently available free games.

To add a game to your library, simply click on it and then click “Add to Library.” The game will then be added to your account and will be available for download at any time while you’re subscribed to PlayStation Plus.

Step 3: Download and Play!

Now that you’ve added some new free games to your library, it’s time to start playing! To download a game that’s already in your library, go back to the PlayStation Store and navigate to “Library” in the top menu bar.

From there, select “Purchased” and then find the game you want to download. Click on it and then click “Download.”

Once the game has finished downloading, it will be ready to play whenever you like! Just remember that you’ll need an active PlayStation Plus subscription to continue playing the game.


Getting your hands on free games with PlayStation Plus is easy and straightforward. Just remember to keep an eye out for new releases, add the games to your library, and then download and play them whenever you like. With a bit of patience and some luck, you’ll be able to build up an impressive library of free games in no time!
