We are very surprised, in a good way, by the offer that Sony has just launched in the United States, as new PlayStation 5 customers in American territory will be able to choose a free game from a fantastic selection.
If you’re reading this news in Europe or another continent, this news may not be relevant to you, although there might be a way to make Sony believe you’re in the United States through a VPN… who knows.
Sony is currently offering PS5 owners in the United States the opportunity to redeem one of the 12 first-party console releases completely for free.
What you need to redeem the Sony offer
The offer is valid for PSN account holders aged 18 and older and is available until October 20, 2023. So, if you’ve purchased or activated a new console, it may be worth checking if you meet the requirements.
To redeem your free game, you’ll need to head to the PS5 store after activating your new console, where a banner will indicate that you’re eligible to redeem a title.
By selecting this banner, you’ll access a section of the store displaying the available titles. From here, choose the title you want and press “Download” to add it to your library completely free of charge.
There are 12 games available as part of this offer, including some of the best PS5 exclusives and top PS5 games. The complete list is as follows:
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered
- God of War Ragnarok
- Horizon Forbidden West
- Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
- Demon’s Souls
- The Last of Us: Part I
- Sackboy: A Big Adventure
- Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
- Death Stranding: Director’s Cut
More details about the offer can be found on the official PlayStation website where the promotion was initially shared, including a more detailed description of when the deal runs, as well as the terms and conditions for redeeming games.
Yes, if you’re reading this outside of the United States, you might think it’s a bit unfair, but that’s how markets, companies, and their internal promotional policies work in the end.
