Throughout the year, Sony has been killing it with the PlayStation Plus monthly free game offerings. With the launch of the PS5 in November, Sony had to do something special, setting the tone for next-gen. Now, Sony has revealed the PlayStation Plus free games lineup for November 2020, which includes PS5 title Bugsnax, and provided more details on the PlayStation Collection.

Bugsnax on PS5: How to get

Bugsnax, from developer Young Horses, is a charming, whimsical first-person adventure. Players will take on the role of an investigative journalist who has set out to explore Snaktooth Island, home to legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax.

When the PS5 launches in your region, you will be able to discover, hunt and capture all 100 critters while also tracking down and reuniting the island’s inhabitants. If you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.

Bugsnax will be available for free with PlayStation Plus starting 12th November or 19th November, depending on when the PS5 launches in your region. Simply grab it for free when your PS5 arrives.

It is important to note Bugsnax will not be free for PS4, as Sony explains the benefit is only available to PS5 owners.
