Here are some of the best free PS5 games available without spending a penny
With myriad loadouts, several seasons and umpteen themed events under its gun belt already, things have only gotten bigger and bigger for this free-to-play shooter spin-off.
An adorable platformer that takes you on an Easter egg-packed tour of PlayStation’s history. Astro would be must-play, even if it wasn't free.
Bungie's looter shooter has gone from strength to strength since it went free-to-play in late 2019. Although that said, the paid for Witch Queen expansion really is exceptional.
Psyonix’s long-standing sports-racer is tremendous fun – in one vs one bouts, four vs four encounters, and everything else in between.
If Titanfall 2 and Overwatch got together in the throes of a war-torn battle royale deathmatch, the outcome would look something like Apex Legends. No other battle royale is more satisfying to control.
Another free-to-play game that landed with modest fanfare that has really taken off since launch. MiHoYo's sprawling open-world gacha JRPG remains a relevant treat thanks to frequent updates.
Splitgate isn’t quite Portal meets Halo, but it’s as close as we’re going to get minus lawsuits or big money takeovers. As a super fast-paced, free-to-play shooter, it's great fun.
If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a space ninja, Warframe is for you. With a mix of close-quarters melee, fast-action shooting, RPG and stealth elements, this is one of the best free games on the PS5.
A mostly unnecessary name change was quickly followed by a much-welcomed format change in the world of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds recently. PUBG is now free-to-play, and has never been better.
Instantly accessible but with real long-term depth, this battle royale behemoth has taken the world by storm with its series of themed seasons and real-world crossovers.
