40% Discount on a One-Year PS Plus Membership
Before you even begin dreaming of playing popular PS4 and PS5 titles for free, you need to pick up a PS Plus subscription. Sony had slashed the price by 40% for a one-year membership. While it’s a prerequisite to enjoying the perks of new free games month after month, as well as exclusive discounts for membership holders on the PlayStation Store, you’d need it anyway to play your favorite games online.
Final Fantasy VII Remake (March)
If you weren’t there 20-plus years ago to join Cloud’s fight against an energy company and a half-human-half-Cetra madman with mother issues, now’s your chance to immerse yourself in the award-winning game’s remake for the PS4, Final Fantasy VII Remake. Take on the role of Cloud and other members of Avalanche as they venture through the expansive city of Midgar to free its people from the planet-killing clutches of its evil corporation-government.
Persona 5 (March)
Persona 5 is an RPG-lover’s dream game! Uncover the mischievous story of a band of phantom thieves in the latest installment of the Persona franchise. During the day, you can relive the moviesque moments of a high school teenager.

With different endings, you’ll want to try your best to avoid the sad, bad, and truly terrible endings to achieve one of the Persona 5 good ending versions.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time (April)
After a six-year hiatus, Activision revived the classic PlayStation game franchise with N. Sane Trilogy and CTR: Racing Nitro-Fueled. Activision recently launched the PS5 version of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.

Oddworld: Soulstorm (April)
Fans of Abe and his strange yet slightly adorable Mudokon brethren have been in the dark for five years, after Oddworld Inhabitants initially announced the remake of Abe’s Exoddus in 2016. But Sony has finally put our worries to rest with the announcement that it was giving away Oddworld: Soulstorm for free to PS Plus members. Take a sneak peek at Soulstorm’s gameplay in this developer presentation video. We don’t know about you, but nothing excites us more than getting our hands on a modernized recreation of the game we played so much as kids!
