Last Chance To Get The PlayStation Plus Games For September 2020

This month, PS Plus subscribers can grab two great freebies, PUBG and Street Fighter V.

125 Comments

One of the perks of PlayStation Plus is getting two free games every month, which are yours to keep as long as you subscribe to the service. You still have a few hours to pick up the September 2020 games, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Street Fighter V. Together, the duo make September one of the stronger months of the year when it comes to Sony's free game offerings. Both will be free to claim for subscribers until October 5. Also make sure to check out the October 2020 PlayStation Plus games, which were announced last week and will be available when the current around of games expires.

Street Fighter V originally released in 2016 and has continued to evolve, with new characters and stages added over the course of seasonal updates. The popular fighting game is currently in its fifth and final season, and new content is still on the horizon despite Street Fighter V being more than four years old. It earned a 7/10 in our original Street Fighter V review, with critic Peter Brown praising the deep fighting mechanics and unique cast of fighters that has only grown exponentially since release. Rather than release entirely new versions of the game that are incompatible with previous ones, Capcom has taken to also including these as updates for existing players.

To celebrate Street Fighter V's arrival on PS Plus, Sony will hold tournaments beginning September 4. Play well enough and you could win some goodies, including cash prizes and an exclusive PS4 theme.

While Fall Guys may be the current prince of battle royales, you can grab a decidedly different take on the genre for free throughout September. PUBG, which barely needs an introduction at this point, is a more stringent battle royale that relies on precise gunplay and deep knowledge of the large map. It has changed a lot since we published our PUBG review in 2017, but it earned an 8/10 for its rewarding tactical combat and penchant for unpredictability. It still has some technical issues, but it's worth checking out if you're looking for a change of pace from Fortnite or Fall Guys.

IMAGINE NETFLIX ONLY allowing you to watch your library.

A Library that you build by the two games a month they give you.

This is as outdated as Movie Theaters monopoly on all new movies.

Your comment makes no sense. No one owning a PS4 is building their library 2 free games at a time.

@face76: I'm confused by ur response.

My comment was about PS+ not Owning a PS4.

(as in~ w/ PS+ we can only play the PS+ games we attach to our accounts.

If you missed a month in 2018 or simply forgot then you don't get those games.

AKA it's a rental service but only for the games you attach..

Or did you see my point but think it's nonsense?

How long would it take to earn all the characters in Street Fighter 5 through playing for fight money?

Not interested in costumes or backgrounds just characters.

Just curious how long it would take.

I discovered something interesting the other day: one of the PS+ game I already grabbed gave me the option to buy it.

"So what?" you're thinking. Well, the thing with the PS+ games is, one you unsub, you lose the game. So what if you want to buy the game, like during some crazy sale when it's only a few dollars, so you can keep it after you unsub? Well...you can't. Unless you wait for your sub to run out, but...sale's over by then.

So it was weird for me to see the option to both "download" and "purchase" the game. Only the games that were on sale gave me the option, but still...that's a big deal.

@Barighm: It's AMAZING how many idiot sheople don't realize that the moment that PS+ subscription runs out = you can't play any of the games..

*It's netflix but with only the smal library that you slowly build ROTF.

@sippio: game pass is the same thing. It even ask you to buy the game while you are downloading it from GP. It’s nothing like Netflix btw. Netflix is a streaming service that gives access movies and shows for a number of tvs depending on which tier you pick. PlayStation plus like Xbox Live is a subscription service that allows you to play online, get free games, and etc. 2 different services.

I don´t even own a Playstation console and I am thinking of subscribing for a month just in case.

Those were a couple of strong months!

I never complain. I get all of the free games, whether I like them or not. Games I don't like, sometimes I end up liking later on.

I think that people who aren't happy with this month's selections either don't like fighting games or already own SFV.

The main problem I have with SFV being one of the games is, it being an exclusive, most of the people who really wanted this game already bought it. But the good news for new players is, though this is the barebones version, the champion edition upgrade will likely be on sale on black friday in a couple months.

@sippio: the only difference in ps+ when it comes to free games was it left the free games stay free after they where offered. Which was only good if you just bought a PS3/PS4. As for Xbox Live they didn’t start the free game thing until after Sony did with PlayStation. You act like both services were giving out games everyday and it’s free. Jesus Christ quit whining. You came here just to shit on this news.
