PS Plus Free Games in 2019: All PlayStation Plus games given away by Sony this year

PlayStation Plus is Sony’s subscription service for the PS4 (and previously PS3 and PS Vita).

At its heart, the service is intended as payment to access the consoles online multiplayer features. Want to play GTA Online? You’ll need PS Plus. Fancy a game of FIFA with your best mate over the internet. You’ll both need PS Plus.

There’s no getting around it, which is why, most PS4 owners have a PS Plus subscription. Thankfully, in exchange, Sony also give you a tonne of ‘extras’. We say that loosely since, you are paying, but really you’re paying for access to online functions and in return get some cool stuff back.

Whilst you occasionally get access to free PS Plus discounts, game demo’s or sometimes freebies like, extra cosmetics for your favourite Battle Royale game (Fortnite, Apex Legends, you name it), the biggest benefit of PS Plus is the free games.

Every month Sony give away 2 PS4 games to subscribers, completely for free. You get to keep them for as long as you like, assuming you don’t let your subscription lapse.

So whilst you might be paying, £49.99 a year for access to the online functionality of your PS4, you normally get back well over £100 in free games each year.

In June alone, players got Sonic Mania (£14.99 at time of writing) and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (£44.99 at time of writing). So yeh, you’re certainly getting your money’s worth.

Below you’ll find a list of all the games given away with PlayStation Plus in 2019. Just in the event, y’know you want to keep tabs on what Sony has been giving away.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Activision’s colossal Call of Duty series is well and truly part of the fabric of modern gaming, but it was only in 2007 that developer Infinity Ward took the console world by storm with its contemporary spin on the popular WW2 shooter series it helped create.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a phenomenal success, winning players’ hearts with a memorable campaign and sleek online multiplayer. 2016’s Modern Warfare Remastered added a fresh lick of paint for a new generation of gamers, while respectfully retaining its snappy gunplay and brilliant level design.

Download it with PS Plus this month to relive a true FPS classic (in glorious 4K with PS4 Pro).

The Witness

Having had massive success with charming puzzle-platformer Braid back in 2008, creator Jonathan Blow promptly returned to the drawing board and spent the next eight years working on an ambitious follow-up.

The result was 2016’s The Witness – an enigmatic first-person puzzler set on a seemingly-deserted tropical island, dotted from one end to the other with a vast network of interconnected puzzles.

Boasting spellbinding narrative twists, and an unbeatable sense of satisfaction in conquering each puzzle, The Witness is a benchmark in design and environmental storytelling. Download on PS Plus this month for a slow-burning test of the old grey matter.
