PlayStation Plus November 2017: all the free PS4 games you can get this month
Are you a PlayStation Plus subscriber on the hunt for free PS4 games? Welcome! We’ve rounded up all the free games and discounts for the month of November down below – plus, you’ll find the deals from prior months, too.
The best perks of being a PlayStation Plus subscriber is that, each month, you’re given a range of free games across the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.
This is a great way to try games you might not otherwise have played, whether because they’re indie titles that slip under your radar or simply because you don’t have the funds to buy several games a month.
Don’t have a PS Plus account? Buy/Renew one now!
New to PlayStation Plus? Need to re-up your subscription? Three-month membership codes are available to purchase from these retailers: Amazon | Amazon UK | GameStop | Best Buy | Argos | JB Hi-Fi
Even if you don’t plan to play them straight away, or you’re not sure if they’re your kind of game, we’d say it’s always worth claiming them while you can get them for free; you’ll then have access to them for as long as you have an active PS Plus account.
Since this is a monthly event, we’ve decided to create a one-stop shop where you’ll be able to find the newest free games, as well as scroll back and see which games were featured in previous months. That way you’ll know whether it’s worth holding out for a game to appear in an upcoming PlayStation Plus haul or if it’s already been offered.
So without further ado, here are the free PlayStation Plus games in North America, Europe and Australia for October 2017, which will be available to download within the next few days.
November will see two free PS4 games, two PS3 games, two PS Vita games and one PSVR game available for free for PlayStation Plus members. It’s a decent haul, perfect for the long month of potentially droll family time ahead. (Descriptions from the PlayStation Store are edited for clarity / style.)
