The November 2020 free PS4 games will only be available until November 30, making it one of the shortest months to take advantage of the PS Plus titles.
The timings were confirmed by Sony in a recent PlayStation Plus blog post: “Both PS4 games will be available from Tuesday, November 3 to Monday, November 30.”
On the plus side, the shorter month means subscribers won’t have to wait very long for the December 2020 free PS4 (and potentially PS5) games to be announced.
If the new games are available to download on November 30 (which likely means December 1 in the UK), then the announcement will take place the week before.
This means the December 2020 free PlayStation Plus games will be revealed at 4.30pm on November 25.
Less clear is exactly what will be included in the next batch of free PS Plus games, and whether it features PS5 games.
Sony has suggested that PS5 games will feature in future PS Plus giveaways, although maybe not at the same pace as PS4 games.
“All PlayStation Plus members will continue to receive at least two great PS4 games each month,” reads a Sony post.
“It is our goal to add PS5 games regularly to the monthly games lineup, so check back with us at PS Blog for our monthly PlayStation Plus announcements.”
At the time of writing, PS Plus subscribers can download Middle-earth Shadow of War and Hollow Knight for PS4, as well as Bugsnax for PS5.
Shadow of War and Hollow Knight are available until November 30/December 1, while Bugsnax is free until January 4.
That’s on top of the PlayStation Plus Collection, which gives PS5 users access to 20 of the best PS4 games.
This includes God of War, Fallout 4, Persona 5, Mortal Kombat X and Monster Hunter World.
November has definitely been one of the greatest months ever for PlayStation Plus free games, so long may it continue.
Outside of the PlayStation Plus Collection, Hollow Knight Voidheart Edition is the pick of the bunch when it comes to PS Plus games.
“In Team Cherry’s engrossing 2D explorative platformer, descend into a sprawling underground world of Hollownest to battle tainted creatures and befriend bizarre bugs.
“Unlock new skills and tailor your power sets to fit your playstyle to help you explore twisting caverns, ancient cities and deadly wastes.
“Uncover a kingdom’s ancient history, taking on epic bosses that’ll challenge your combat and platforming skills as you strive to solve the mysteries buried at its heart.”
You can play Hollow Knight and Shadow of War on the PS4 and PS5, while Bugsnax is only accessible to PlayStation Plus subscribers on PS5.
