These games are free on PlayStation 5 when you subscribe to PlayStation Plus. This subscription also enables you to play games online, offers two free games each month and grants discounts on games, add-ons and pre-orders. PlayStation Plus also enables you to backup your progress to the cloud.
- PlayStation Plus costs £6.99/month
With PlayStation Plus you can also share your games in more ways with friends and family:
- Screen Share – Let's someone in another place watch your game on their PlayStation. PlayStation Plus is not required for either party
- Pass the Controller – Let's someone in another place take turns on a game you own, without owning the game themselves. PlayStation Plus is required for the host, but not for the guest
- Playing Together – Let's you play local co-op or split screen games with someone in another place who has a PlayStation. PlayStation Plus is required for both players
If you own a PlayStation 5, subscribing to PlayStation Plus also grants access to more free games via the PlayStation Plus Collection
Share PlayStation Plus With Family
You can share your PlayStation Plus subscription with other family members. This enables them to access games from your PlayStation Plus account. Go to Settings | Users and Accounts | Other | Console Sharing and Offline Play
and select Enable
. Then go to Settings | Account Management | Activate as Your Primary PlayStation
and select Activate
You can also share access to your game library on other PlayStation consoles not designated as your Primary machine provided you are logged in. This does, however, log you out of any other PlayStation consoles as you can only be logged into one at a time.
