All PS5 and PS4 Game Trials and Demos Guide 1

What are all PS5 and PS4 Game Trials and demos? Demos aren't as popular as they once were, but can still prove a valuable way of helping you to decide which games to buy. Recently, Sony has introduced a new concept called Game Trials, allowing you to download and play a full game for a set length of time. On this page, we're going to list all PS5 and PS4 Game Trials and demos. If you're looking for more free and subscription games, then check out All Free PS Plus Games in 2021, All PS Now Games, All EA Play Games on PS5, PS4, and Best Free PS4 Games.

All PS5 and PS4 Game Trials

Game Trials are available on PS5 and PS4, and allow you to play a full game for a restricted length of time. The trial duration begins from the moment that you trigger the download or add it to your library, and counts in realtime rather than playtime. This means that if you start a five hour Game Trial at 5PM then you'll have until 10PM to download it and play it. If you decide to purchase the game, your progress will carry across. Game Trials are eligible for one use per PSN account.

On this page, you'll find all PS5 and PS4 Game Trials currently available. Please note that while best efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of this guide, regional restrictions may apply. Sony also reserves the right to remove or reduce Game Trials without notice, so it's possible some of the information within may change.
