Will PS Plus Members Get Free PS5 Games?
Yes, subscribers will receive free PS5 games on PS Plus. Currently, members of the service get two PS4 games and one PS5 game per month — all of which are playable on PS5 thanks to backwards compatibility. For a full list of All Free PS Plus Games in 2021, check the link.
Will PS Plus Members Still Get Free PS4 Games?
Yes, subscribers still receive PS4 games in addition to PS5 games on PS Plus. As mentioned above, PS Plus members get two PS4 games each month as well as one PS5 title. However, as proven with the PS3, this offering will most likely stop eventually. The PlayStation 3 continued to receive free titles five and a half years into the PS4 generation, so you won't have to worry about an expiration date any time soon.
Also worth keeping in mind is that PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4 games, so older games are more likely to stick around on PS Plus for longer than PS3 and Vita games.
In addition to the monthly rotation of free PS4 games, PS5 owners can also benefit from PlayStation Plus Collection, which grants you access to a curated selection of some of the best PS4 titles. For more information, see our guide: All PS Plus Collection Games on PS5.
