PlayStation Plus is arguably the best console membership service you can sign up for. It often features incredible discounts on some of the best PS4 games and is a great tool for people who want to build up their game library in a hurry. Picking up physical copies of games at Target or GameStop is certainly an option, but if you want to save some cash, take advantage of the digital sales Sony runs on the PlayStation Store. Here are the best PS Plus game deals available right now.
Free PlayStation Plus games
‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ (Free, expires 11/6)
We’ve seen Jason Voorhees kill countless unsuspecting teenagers over the years in his films, but what if you could become the masked killer and become the villain of your very own slasher flick – in a game, of course. Friday the 13th: The Game uses asymmetric multiplayer, placing one lucky player in the role of Jason while the rest attempt to survive. Prove you’re the ultimate scream queen (or king) and take the baddie down for good!
‘Laser League’ (Free, expires 11/6)
Like your sports with a little science fiction and danger thrown in? Laser League has you covered. Hitting the colored lasers of the opposing team will result in a violent – albeit temporary – end, and you and your teammates have to keep a close eye on the changing arena in order to come out on top. Laser League is from the creators of OlliOlli, who know a little something about odd takes on sports.
‘2064: Read Only Memories’ (Free, expires 11/6)
Also free on PlayStation Vita in October, 2064: Read Only Memories is a complex and fascinating take on cyberpunk that uses a gorgeous pixel-art aesthetic, harkening back to the glory days of adventure games in the ‘90s. With brilliant voice acting and a cast of eccentric characters perfect for the setting, it proves that the genre doesn’t need enormous budgets to tell a deep and mysterious story.
‘Knowledge is Power’ (Free, expires 11/6)
You claim to be the smartest person in your squad, but can you back up all that talk? With the PlayLink game Knowledge is Power, you and your opponents answer trivia questions via your mobile devices, and only the most encyclopedic minds will come out on top.

It’s 2018, and you still haven’t played The Last of Us? We’re not sure how that’s possible, but you can currently get the full The Last of Us Remastered game for just $10 on PSN. A bunch of extra downloadable goodies are also available, including the excellent Left Behind standalone expansion for just $5. It’s definitely worth playing the expansion, which is a prequel to the main game, in preparation for the Ellie-focused The Last of Us: Part II currently in the works.
Skip the Switch port on ‘Sine Mora EX’ and save huge ($6)
The inventive shoot-’em-up game Sine Mora EX is available on a ton of different systems, and it recently received a Nintendo Switch port. That version, however, will cost you $30, while the current PlayStation Store sale lets you get the game for just $6. If you have PlayStation Plus, you’ll get it for just $2 — that’s more than 93 percent cheaper than the Switch version!
