PS5 Gamers can get titles for under a tenner if they join platform subscription service

Games fans can get 20 hit titles on the upcoming Playstation 5 console for under a tenner.

Sony is handing players who sign up to its PS Plus monthly online subscription service access to a host of games playable on the new console.

And with the PS5 coming in at a hefty £450 and new titles costing upwards of £70-a-pop, fans will be relieved to hear they can have a winter’s worth of gameplay at a discount price.

The games available on the new machine’s PS Plus Collection include PS4 hits like the much loved Batman: Arkham Knight, shooting game Battlefield 1, brawler Mortal Kombat X and popular action-adventure Uncharted 4.

Many of this “best of” collection rate within the very top tiers of Playstation games in recent years and are well worth a go.

Sony says PS Plus Collection is a “benefit” to those who subscribe to its monthly online service, where gamers get access to the popular multiplayer portions of games like Call of Duty.

And with PS Plus subscriptions costing as little as £6.99 a month, it’s a total bargain for players who can afford the console this Christmas but may struggle to stump up for PS5 launch titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, Sackboy and Demon’s Souls.

Other titles available in the PS Plus Collection include action blockbuster God of War, open-world wasteland title Fallout 4, hack and slash hit Bloodborne and horror-thriller Until Dawn.

“PlayStation Plus members will be able to enjoy a special new offering on the PS5 console – the PlayStation Plus Collection.

“PS5 console owners with PlayStation Plus will be able to redeem and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation, like Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Persona 5 and many more.
