PlayStation Plus is little more than a subscription to play online. Each month, it allows you to collect free games on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. What titles are available in April 2021?
PlayStation Plus is none other than Sony’s premium subscription, the equivalent of Xbox Live Gold at Microsoft and Nintendo Switch Online. Introduced on PlayStation 3, it has nonetheless become mandatory for playing online on PS4 and, of course, PS5. But its price, revised upwards a few months ago, could slow down if it were only a second Internet service provider. To justify this sum, Sony has added bonuses to the subscription, which makes it downright profitable: cloud storage space (100 GB), exclusive discounts on the PlayStation Store and, more interestingly, free games. every month.
Each beginning of the month, PlayStation Plus members can therefore download at least two PlayStation 4 games at no additional cost. The selection is uneven from month to month and, of course, only accessible during the period concerned. Once you’ve downloaded a game, it’s yours for as long as you’re subscribed.
