The free game offer spans across a range of best-sellers and critically acclaimed titles:
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered
- God of War Ragnarök
- Horizon Forbidden West
- Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
- Demon’s Souls
- The Last of Us Part I
- Sackboy: A Big Adventure
- Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
- Death Stranding: Director’s Cut
It’s worth noting that a few conditions are tied to this offer. The offer limits one free game per user, with no substitutions or replacements. The request cannot be merged with other select offers. Moreover, the selection of games can change without prior notice, and Sony reserves the right to alter or withdraw the offer at any given time.
This generous gesture by Sony might be linked to the spectacular growth in European PS5 console sales, which saw a nearly 200% spike year-on-year in August. With rumors circulating about a new PS5 model with a detachable disc drive and the company’s aim to surpass a 25-year-old sales record by shipping 25 million PS5 consoles by March 2024, this offer could be a strategic move to maintain the momentum.
