Frequently Asked Questions

Can I claim and play the free PS4 games on my PS5?

Of course! As long as there's no notice about the game having problems with backwards compatibility, all PS4 Plus games will be playable on PS5.

Can I claim Wreckfest for my account even if I don't own a PS5?

Yes! No problem about that, it's completely allowed.

Can I still claim previous months games?

Nope, it's over. You missed the train.

The free games aren't showing as free during checkout, is this normal?

If you live in NA, the games appear as free a bit later in the day compared to the EU Store.

How can I benefit from the PlayStation Plus Collection on my PS4?

You can access the PlayStation Plus Collection by connecting your account with a PS5, and claim all the games on the PS5. You can then play them on your PS4, as long as your account has a Plus subscription active. Please note that its at your own risk, as Sony can identify the accounts and the consoles that give "too much" of these games. Some players selling that "service" have been banned.
