Before we jump into the free games for this month, let’s talk about the perks of being a PlayStation Plus member, for the people unfamiliar with this subscription.
What is PlayStation Plus?
PlayStation Plus(PS Plus) is a premium subscription for people who own a PlayStation console like the PS Vita or PlayStation 3 and 4. With the membership, there are several features and benefits that PlayStation has to offer. Here are a few that are popularly used by PS Plus members today.
Online Multi-Player and Share Play on the PS4.
Membership is required to access the multi-player realm on the PS4. It allows you to play online with friends in co-operative and competitive multiplayer modes with some games supporting cross-platform play. The Share Play function is a unique feature; you can invite an online friend to play a game with you, similar to handing the controller over to your friend when you need help you finish a level. Also, your friend does not need to own the game at all to play with you. Isn’t that cool?
Discounts & Freebies on the PlayStation Store
PS Plus members receive an additional discount on games and add-ons. On top of all the deals each month, PS Plus members receive a list of free digital games to download every month. The games are added to their library and kept for as long as they remain a member. I have over 100 free games already.
A few more cool perks are being able to download digital games or add-ons when you are away from your console. There are also exclusive beta games for PS Plus members to play alongside with full game demos.
