If you are a PlayStation Plus member, you are entitled to a handful of games each month. When PS5 launched back in November, the number of monthly games increased to three – two PS4 games and one on PS5. This is obviously great if you’ve managed to grab one of Sony’s new consoles, but what if you’re having trouble finding PS5 stock, or just waiting to jump? You’re missing that extra PS Plus game, right? Well, you don’t have to be.
You can easily claim any PS5 game coming to PS Plus, even if you have hardware. Let’s take this month’s mentor as an example. If you want to play it on your future PS5, you can add it to your library via the PlayStation app on a smartphone or the PlayStation web store. Just log into your PSN account with any of these, find the game through search, and click Add to Library. Once you are done, you will have the Mentor in your Library of Games, and will be able to download it after setting up your shiny new PS5.
The course will apply to Destruction Allstar after its launch on February 2, and for any future PS5 games coming to PS Plus. By adding games to your library via a browser or application, you’ll ensure that you don’t lose these early PS5s for free. It is very easy, but not something that is immediately obvious. If you want to play PS5 games on PS Plus you want to play, the lack of PS5 doesn’t mean you can’t play it eventually.
Do you have a PS5 PS Plus game sitting in your library using this method? Are you claiming disastrous AllStars to play your PS5 once, then you have it to play? Tell us in the comments section below.
