PS+ Premium subscribers will gain access to time-limited game trials, however, it’s not what you think it is.
After the announcement of PS+ Premium, everyone is undoubtedly hyped for its launch because of the vast library of games it’ll come with. Aside from a monstrous library, it looks like the subscription service will also offer game trials for a limited time. Initially, you’d think that it’ll be the typical trial version of specific games offered by PlayStation. However, that’s not the case this time around.
PS+ Premium subscription will grant players access to full games for a limited time. During these hours, players are eligible to gain trophies and save their progress throughout their gameplay. After you’ve consumed the allotted time given for the free trial, both saved data and trophies will remain in your cloud. With that being said, if a player decides to purchase the game after the free trial, they can pick up from where they left off.
Sony announced that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Horizon Forbidden West, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, and WWE 2K22 will be part of the free trial. However, Sony didn’t necessarily reveal all the games and for how long players could play them. Luckily, PlayStation Game Size revealed on Twitter both the games available for the free trial and the duration for each trial.
🚨 Times :
– WWE 2K22 / Elex 2 / MotoGP 22 / Biomutant / Lego City / Hot Wheels / Tiny Tina / Uncharted : 2 H
– Farming Simulator / Crusader Kings III : 3 H
– Horizon Forbidden West / Cyberpunk 2077 : 5 H 🤔 https://t.co/bzYcbvHU05

Here’s the full list:
- WWE 2K22 / Elex 2 / MotoGP 22 / Biomutant / Lego City / Hot Wheels / Tiny Tina / Uncharted : 2 H
- Farming Simulator / Crusader Kings III : 3 H
- Horizon Forbidden West / Cyberpunk 2077 : 5 H
Honestly, this is a more efficient way for players to test out the waters before purchasing a game and ending up regretting it afterward. The best part about this is the fact that players can still save their data and earn trophies.
We’re not entirely sure if Sony plans on adding more free games in the coming months. However, this is definitely something to look forward to when subscribing to PS+ Premium. If you want to know more about when the new PS+ Tiers will launch, check out our article here.
