You explore an open game world on the motorcycle, which is populated by huge hordes of the undead.

In the third-person shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War you fight an army of the undead in a parallel world in 1946 in Rome, Venice and Croatia. The Second World War is not yet over in this scenario. The action game can be played with up to four players in online co-op mode. On the PlayStation 5 you grab Oddworld: Soulstorm for download this month. Again you slip into the role of Abe and master a lot of levels as the leader of the resistance fighters.

Whether you've just taken delivery of a shiny new PS5, or want to make the most of a much-loved PS4, PS3 or PS Vita, PlayStation Plus is a must-have. Not only will it allow you to engage in epic online multiplayer battles, it'll grant you access to free games every month! 


Not managed to your hands on Sony's next-gen console? Here's where to buy a PS5 and a rundown of today's best PS5 deals.

Membership to PlayStation Plus costs £50/$60 per year but there are regularly deals of up to 50 per cent off. You'll find a handy price comparison below, along with some serious savings and unmissable deals. You can opt for a shorter subscription – but the 12-month membership represents the best value.

Read on and we'll explain all the exciting benefits of PlayStation Plus – including how to get free games – and reveal the lowest prices.

PlayStation Plus benefits

The major benefit of joining PlayStation Plus is that it allows you to play PS5 and PS4 online multiplayer games. That means you'll be able to take on players all over the world and battle your way to the top in games such as Assassin's Creed Valhalla, FIFA 21 and Demon's Souls to name but three. 

Membership also gets you two free PS5 or PS4 games each month. Here's a peek at this month's games. Sony tends to be very generous, with past freebies including huge blockbusters such as Batman: Arkham City and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, as well as sleeper hits such as Rocket League. Not bad considering PS Plus membership costs as little as £5/$5 per month.

But that's not all. You also get exclusive access to new character skins, new weapons for your favourite games, plus exclusive discounts across the PlayStation Network. In some cases, those savings are on top of existing discounts or sale prices. All of which means that even if you're a casual gamer, PlayStation Plus membership could quickly pay for itself.

You get 100GB of cloud storage so you can back up your hard-fought save games. It's also worth noting that PS5 owners can't back up or transfer their PS5 save games without subscribing to PlayStation Plus, so it's something of an essential purchase.  

For the money, we reckon PlayStation Plus is a fantastic buy. But why pay over the odds when you can secure it at a much cheaper price? 

Best PlayStation Plus deals 

The best-value way to get PlayStation Plus membership is to buy an annual membership, as this works out cheaper than the pay-monthly and pay-quarterly options.

Officially, the costs are £50 ($60, AU$80) annually, £20 ($25, AU$34) quarterly, or £7 ($10, AU$12) monthly, but you can save on those prices by buying your subscription from third-party sellers. The best prices available on the internet right now are shown below.
