We are back with another blog! And this time we will be talking about the PS Plus subscription and whether it is worth buying especially if you own a PS5. So, let’s get right into it.
What exactly is the PS Plus subscription?
PS plus is a very popular service rendered by PlayStation for PS5 and PS4 that allows online access to multiplayer games and more. It consists of a huge library full of online games.
What’s more, is that the service comes with more benefits than just getting access to a wonderful range of games. Let’s talk about those benefits.
- The first and foremost reason for owning the PS Plus subscription is definitely the online games. The PS Plus subscription has a wide range of amazing online games that the PS5 and PS4 users can gain access to.
- PS Plus subscription also brings in free games every month that can be downloaded and played for as long as you wish to. PlayStation brings out three free games every month and the period to download the same remains till the end of the month,
However, please note that these three games per month will drop to two free games from the month of June this year.
- The PS Plus subscription also brings cloud storage to the table allowing the users to use 100 GB of cloud storage to save games that can be transferred anytime.
- The subscription holders are also recipients of great discounts and offer on games, especially during sale periods and festivals.
Talking about the history of the PS Plus, it was introduced through PlayStation 3. The service was also available to the PS vita users then. However, this facility has been long discontinued from both the PS3 and the PS Vita.
Benefits of buying the PS Plus for your PS5
Now, you might be wondering if buying the PS Plus subscription is worth it if you own a PS5? Worry not, we have the answer for you.
Sony pulled all stops when launching its next-generation console, the PS5. Even though the console in itself is a powerful force, enough to make everyone open their wallets as soon as they can, Sony very cleverly launched the PS plus collection exclusively for PS5 users.
The PS Plus collection is a culmination of 20 bangers that are exclusively available for anyone who owns a PS5 and also buys a PS Plus subscription. Every game on the list is worth every penny and promises an unprecedented experience. We have got the list of games that are available to be downloaded through the PS Plus subscription if you own a PS5 as well.
- God of War: This video game follows Kratos (one of the most iconic characters in the history of PlayStation) and his son Atreus as they travel through the Norse Lands to fulfil Atreus’ mother’s last wishes.
- Until Dawn: This horror-thriller ticks all the right boxes giving you an experience similar to that of a cinematic horror movie. The game has it all, a creepy lodge with a history of evil and hauntings, a killer on the loose and a lot of other things that you have to see for yourself.
- Fallout 4: This masterpiece of a game set up in a post-apocalyptic setting in England, gives you an extra clear view of destruction, exploration, and action at its finest.
- Resident Evil 7 Biohazard: Another masterpiece on the list, RE7 is an attempt of venturing outside the usual Resident Evil narrative and introducing a first-person view in the game. The game has a creepy house with a family whose intentions aren’t that great.
- Bloodborne: The gothic horror will set your heart racing with its incredible sequences that quite resemble those of Dark Souls with its own individuality. Stride into the streets of Yarnham to fight-off gods, werewolves and other such creatures alike.
