Every month, Sony offers two free games for those that have an active PlayStation Plus membership. As October comes to a close, the free PS Plus November 2020 games lineup has been revealed and includes a pretty stellar lineup. 

PS Plus November 2020 Games

The upcoming month of free games offers a special treat for PlayStation 5 owners with the new console dropping next month. For PS5 players, Bugsnax will be free when the console launches on November 12. 

PlayStation 4 players will include Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition. Shadow of War was a phenomenal Lord of the Rings adventure that offered combat mechanics that Assassin's Creed and Batman fans fell in love with instantly. Hollow Knight is also a treasure, one that is absolutely worth scooping up, especially for those that have a penchant for indie titles that hold a ton of charm! 

As for Bugsnax, Sony says "The very first PS5 game to join PlayStation Plus is Young Horses’ ultra-charming, whimsical first-person adventure Bugsnax! Play an investigative journalist who has set out to explore Snaktooth Island, home to legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax. Discover, hunt and capture all 100 critters while also tracking down and reuniting the island’s inhabitants."

It's not too late to also scoop up October's games with Vampyr and Need for Speed: Payback, though it is important to note that an active PS Plus membership is required for all of the aforementioned titles. The membership for Sony's online services includes free games each month, exclusive sales on select titles, and unlimited access to game online with friends! The free games remain yours until the membership runs out.
