PlayStation currently has 369 free downloads you can play without PS Plus

The PlayStation Store is home to a wide array of demos that you can dive into for free, including for several major titles.

It’s no secret that games are pretty pricey, with a new major release setting you back around £69.99 or more if you opt for a collector’s or deluxe edition. With that in mind, the concept of try before you buy feels more important than ever.

Not only do you not know if you’re going to enjoy your rather pricey purchase, there’s also the chance that it might not play very well. Cyberpunk 2077 is an easy example to raise. While it may be a stunning game in its state today, it certainly wasn’t back in 2020 when players had just spent their hard-earned cash on a bug and glitch-ridden mess. We’re all familiar with PlayStation Plus Premium’s free trials but even that service is rather pricey. What you might not know is that the PlayStation Store is actually home to 369 free trials, available for you to sample at no cost and without a subscription.

Take a look at our review of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth below.

To peruse this selection, visit the PlayStation Store and simply filter by the ‘Demo’ category. There are plenty of demos to choose from reflecting a variety of genres, from major AAAs to indie delights. You can check out the recent Granblue Fantasy: Relink, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, Tekken 8, Outcast - A New Beginning, The Inquisitor, and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Other highlights include Sea of Stars, Viewfinder, Street Fighter 6, Live A Live, Resident Evil 4, Octopath Traveller II, Forspoken, Bramble - The Mountain King, Oddworld Soulstorm, Scarlet Nexus, Ghostrunner, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Little Nightmares II, Resident Evil 3, Moving Out, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Resident Evil 2, Detroit: Become Human, and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.

That’s just a small glimpse at what’s on offer so it’s well worth having a look and an experiment with a few titles. You might just discover a brand new favourite.
