(Pocket-lint) - Each month, PS5 and PS4 owners who subscribe to one of Sony's PlayStation Plus tiers get to download and play a great selection of free games.

PS Plus is PlayStation's online gaming service, which provides access to multiplayer gaming and other benefits, including money off many digital purchases. It is offered in a three tier system, with each adding increasingly impressive benefits, such as access to a huge library of current and classic games.

PlayStation 5 owners also get an added bonus of 19 classic PS4 games to play on their next-gen console through the PlayStation Plus Collection.

A PS Plus Essential subscription costs £6.99 / $9.99 / €8.99 per month. There are also PS Plus Extra and Premium tiers that cost a little more for additional services. You can read about them here.


All three give you access to the free games below.
