Game trials are perhaps the most overlooked feature of PS Plus Premium. Subscribers to Sony's most expensive tier will be able to sample a catalogue of PS5 and PS4 titles for up to two hours — which could really come in handy if you're not quite sold on a specific game. Your two hours will only begin to expire once you have the game open.
It's a nice entitlement right off the bat, but the icing on the cake is that you'll actually be able to earn Trophies from game trials, and you'll also be able to carry over your save data to the full product, should you decide to buy.
Here's a first look at some of the game trials coming to PS Plus Premium:
- Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection | Naughty Dog, PS5
- Horizon Forbidden West | Guerrilla, PS4/PS5
Third Party Partners
- Cyberpunk 2077 | CD Projekt, PS5
- Farming Simulator 22 | Giants Software GmBH, PS4/PS5
- Tiny Tina’s Wonderland | 2K Games, PS4/PS5
- WWE 2K22 | 2K Games, PS4/PS5
Now, obviously, for most games, 120 minutes won't be enough time to scoop up more than a handful of Trophies at most, but it'll be really interesting to see whether avid Trophy hunters start forming strategies to maximise Trophy gains within the two-hour limit. We wouldn't be at all surprised if this became a bit of a trend amongst hardcore players.
