You can experience thousands of adventures on the PS4 and PS4 Pro, and you don’t even have to spend money on new PS4 games. Because at regular intervals you can actually secure paid titles temporarily free of charge.
If you’re looking for free PS4 games without PS Plus, you should always be looking for up-to-date game gifts at this point. In the first half of 2020, there were titles like Journey, Knack 2, Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 and Injustice: Gods among us for free for PS4. It is therefore worthwhile to check the offers regularly.
Free Beta Weekend for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Activision will host an open PS4 beta of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War between October 10 and 12. Players only need Internet access and a subscription to PlayStation Plus. Pre-orders are even allowed to start the beta since October 8.
Traditional game modes like Team Deathmatch for six versus six players await you, but the new Fire Squad: Dirty Bomb mode is also in place. There are even 40 fighters engaged in hot gun battles.
Free-to-play: The most popular games
But there are other ways to get to PS4 games for free – for example, free-to-play titles. Visit the PS Store PSN in the Free category. There you will find several games that you play for free. The selection of free-to-play titles includes some role-playing games, but most of them are action games. Fans of other genres such as sports, adventures or beat ’em ups don’t really serve Sony here.
But if you like free shooters like Fortnite, Apex Legends or Warface, then you should definitely look around here. The new Call of Duty shooter Call of Duty Warzone is also available for free. Here you’ll get into a Battle Royale battle with up to 150 players.
Free games with PS Plus
Almost every PS4 fan also knows about the free games that subscribers to the online service PS Plus enjoy. There are free games every month and as long as your subscription is active, you can always download and play them.
PS Plus games in October
Sony has confirmed the free PS Plus games for the month of October. In addition to the racing game Need for Speed Payback, the action horror game Vampyr has been available since 6 October.
- Need for Speed: Payback
Strictly speaking, the titles are not free if you include the cost of your subscription (9 euros per month or 60 euros a year), but given all the free PS Plus games and other benefits, it’s still a very good deal if you want to play a lot.
Keep in mind, however, that if you haven’t downloaded them during the respective free months, you can’t access games already offered on PS Plus for free.
Game streaming services For PS
You can also opt for a subscription to the game streaming service PS Now. Here you can stream hundreds of ps4, PS3 and PS2 games to your PlayStation 4 or PC. On PS4 you can also download games and play them offline.
Again, you only get free games if you book the paid service. One month costs 10 euros, three months 25 euros and one year 60 euros. Alternatively, you can try the service for seven days free of charge.
EA Play (formerly EA Access)
In addition to PS Plus and PS Now, another paid subscription gives you access to free games. EA offers you the Service EA Play and thus advances to upcoming titles of the publisher, as well as previously released games like FIFA 19, Anthem or Battlefield 5.
A month of EA Play costs 4 euros. If you choose to become an annual membership, you currently only have to pay 25 Euros, according to EA.
The following game demos are new
Furthermore, you don’t necessarily have to have full versions of games to have fun. There are also demos. This is limited content of a game that players can try out before purchasing. So you can make sure that you’re also investing your money in a title that’s really fun for you.
At this point you will find a video from Youtube that complements the article. With one click you can see this.
Do you want to turn yourself into a superhero and fly good deeds through the air? Then you want to be Iron Man and you can try this experience for free now if you own a PS4 and a PlayStation VR. The demo of Marvel’s Iron Man VR is currently available.
Demo of Dreams available
Media Molecule now offers you a demo of Dreams for free. In the sandbox title, you can let your creativity run wild and create your own in-game games. However, in this trial, you have limited access to content and you need an active Internet connection.
First act of Mafia 3 now free
Publisher 2K, for example, currently offers You Mafia 3 for free. So you can download a demo from PlayStation Store where you play the complete first act of the GTA-like action-adventure. If you then buy the game, your game progress will be taken over.
In Mafia 3, Lincoln Clay returns from the Vietnam War to New Bordeaux (New Orleans) in the 1960s and at first everything goes well. But then the mafia takes his family from him and a bloody campaign of revenge begins.
In Grand Theft Auto-like, you thwart the mafia’s business, drive through the city with authentic vehicles of the time, deliver firefights with gangsters, and gradually approach the great mafia boss. Will you finally take revenge?
In addition to these demos, you’ll also find demos from many well-known series on the PlayStation Store (PS Store). For example, you can try FIFA, Resident Evil or Final Fantasy in the PS Store as often as you want.
Free DLCs, in-game content and bonuses
In addition to free full versions, there are also free extensions and in-game content such as weapons for shooters from time to time.
Apex Legends Play Pack
If you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription, you can now save the Play Pack for Apex Legends. It includes free skins (for characters and weapons) as well as badges.
- 2 character skins (Gibraltar and Crypto)
- 2 weapon skins (R-301 and Mastiff)
- 2 badges (Gibraltar and Crypto)
Battle Pack (Season 3) for Call of Duty Warzone
With PS Plus, you’ll also get the Battle Pack from Season 3 for Call of Duty Warzone. It includes several epic contents such as an operator skin for Wyatt, a sniper blueprint, a tactical knife, a weapon talisman, and a business card. There is also a rare spray and a token for a Weapon XP bonus (double).
But maybe the time has come to buy a game because it is simply not offered for free. But even then you can save. Either you’re waiting for a cheap deal on the PlayStation Store or you’re buying it with a friend because you can also “share” PS4 games.
