With an active PlayStation Plus subscription, you get at least three free games every month, called the Essential games. As long as you maintain your PS Plus membership, these games remain yours to play after adding them to your collection.

The game choices usually include a mix of indie titles, big AAA games, and some that are somewhere in between.

PlayStation Plus: Features, Different Tiers & Costs

Subscribers from any PS Plus tier can download the PlayStation Plus Essential games for free. These games are available for a month before a new set of games takes their place. Besides the new PS Plus Essential games, we'll also show you which games were added to the Extra and Premium tiers this month.

PS Plus September 2023: New Essential Games This Month

The following three games are available for all PS Plus subscribers to download in September 2023 until early October. So let's get started!

Saints Row

Saints Row was very recently released (2022) and so it's quite the surprise to see it being given away for free. Sadly the game was poorly-received when it launched, but it has received some serious bug fixes since release, and so you should have a good time with it this month.

At worst it's "GTA at home", but that isn't exactly a bad thing even if it's derivative.

Black Desert (Traveler Edition)

Black Desert is a fantasy MMORPG that features some awesome PvE combat as well as very large-scale PvP combat. If you're familiar with MMORPG's you will feel very at home with everything Black Desert has to offer, but if you're not don't worry - Black Desert is a good introduction to the genre.

Generation Zero

Generation Zero is a bizarre but fun game that we think any fan of shooters will get a solid 10 hours out of. The year is 1980, the place is Sweden, and the enemy is an army of out-of-control robots.

The story really isn't important, just sit back and enjoy exploring the Swedish wilderness, collecting new weapons, and destroying mechs!
