PlayStation Plus offers two downloadable games as part of your subscription every month.
These games could be PlayStation Classics or new games that you might have missed. Previous PS Plus titles include What Remains of Edith Finch, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and The Witness.
Each game is only available for a certain period of time and, provided you redeem them before they disappear, they're then available in your games library to download at any time.
Once you've redeemed a game, then it's yours provided you maintain a PS Plus membership. To be eligible for PS Plus games you must have a PS Plus subscription, which is £6.99 / $9.99 / €7.99 per month.
We'll update this page every month, so that you don't miss out any exciting titles.

How to download PS Plus games
There are two ways to download PS Plus games via your console.
The first is via the PS Plus section on your PlayStation 4. You open this section by selecting the PS Plus icon in the top left hand corner of the PlayStation Home screen.
Here you'll be able to view and download the latest PS Plus games. This is also where you can redownload games that you've previously redeemed through PS Plus, if you've uninstalled them from your console.
The second way is through the PlayStation Network Store.
You open the PlayStation Network Store by selecting its icon from the main PlayStation menu.
Once the store loads, scroll down the menu on the left-hand side until you find 'PS Plus.' Here you'll be able to find the games currently available through the PS Plus and download them if you wish.
How to do remote downloads for PS Plus games
You can also remotely download PS Plus games onto your PS4 from the PlayStation Store.
To do this your PlayStation 4 must have Automatic Update switched on.
To activate Automatic Update, you must first ensure your PS4 is connected to the PlayStation Network.
To do this head to 'Settings' and find 'Set Features Available in Rest Mode'. You'll then need to tick the check box next to 'Stay Connected to the Internet' and then do the same thing for 'Enable Turning On of PS4 from Network.'
Next, you'll want to head back to 'Settings' and select 'Automatic Download.' On this new page, scroll down to 'Application Update Files' and click the check box next to it.
Now, when your PlayStation 4 is in rest mode, it will download any PS Plus game you select from the PlayStation Store.
How long can you keep a PS Plus game?
If you cancel your PS Plus subscription, then you'll lose access to any games you've downloaded through PS Plus.
If you renew your PS Plus subscription at any point, then you'll regain access to all the games you've previously downloaded through PS Plus.
