If you're in the market for a new PlayStation 5 console, now might be the perfect time to buy one as Sony is giving away free PS5 games with every purchase.

If you’re out here looking to pick up a new PS5 console, this might be the best time to buy one. Sony is quite-literally giving away free PS5 games with every new console bought in the build up to Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. What’s better is that you don’t actually need to buy it from a specific retailer. But, before you rush to your nearest Best Buy, there is some ‘small print’ you should know about. Oh, and don’t worry if you don’t like Spider-Man, there’s a decent selection of games on offer.

Ahead of the long-awaited Spider-Man 2 release date, which is in a few weeks time, anyone in the United States of America who buys a brand new PlayStation 5 console – and activates it with a PSN account owned by someone 18 or older – will get to download one of the best PS5 games for completely free. As explained in this PlayStation terms and conditions page, all you need to do is turn on and activate your console by October 20 at 23:59 PST to trigger this promotional offer. Sounds simple enough, right?

Once you’ve done all of that, all you need to do is head over to the PlayStation Store – through your new PS5 console, of course – and find the banner that says you get one free game. This will then take you to another page where they’re all listed, and you can just pick one to download. You’re only allowed one though, and there’s “no substitutions or replacements”. So, you need to make sure you’re choosing the right one.

With that in mind, here’s all the free PS5 games included in the new console offer until October 20 below:

  • Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
  • God of War Ragnarök
  • Horizon Forbidden West
  • Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut
  • Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart
  • Demon’s Souls
  • The Last of Us Part I
  • Sackboy A Big Adventure
  • Returnal
  • Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection
  • Death Stranding Director’s Cut

If you want to buy a PlayStation 5 console from Amazon US, you can check out the following offers below. The PS5 Digital is cheaper, but we recommend buying one with a disk drive – it’s more useful than you might think. If you’re in the UK, you might not get any free games, but you can find the latest deals on PS5 consoles below.

You can also find a couple of offers from other retailers below. If you want to play Final Fantasy XVI or Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 ahead of the MW3 release date, here’s a great way to get it a little cheaper – and you’ll still get your other free game.

From some of the best open world games out there right now, to some of the best games of all time, it’s a list full of fantastic games – and a list that presents you with quite a tough choice. If you’re looking for fast-paced action-packed adventures, Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection or Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart is the way to go. If you want rich open-world experiences, Horizon Forbidden West or Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is what you should consider. Of course, playing Marvel’s Spider-Man is a good idea if you’re looking forward to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. So, you should think about picking up the Remaster through this offer if you’re a Marvel fan.
