Sony has sent out a wave of emails introducing a new feature for PlayStation 5 owners called Game Trials. Starting today, the company offers PS5 owners the opportunity to download certain titles of their own and try them for free for a limited time. The first two games available are Death Stranding Director’s Cut and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
The fine print within the email explains that to activate a Trial of Play, you will need to go to PS Store and select the trial option that is labeled free. Death Stranding Director’s Cut will offer six hours of playtime, while Sackboy: A Big Adventure has a five-hour trial. The timer starts as soon as you activate the download, so make sure you have some time to spare, otherwise you will have wasted the opportunity. Accounts are limited to one playtest of each game. Since Game Trials is limited to PS5 titles, the PS4 version of Sackboy: A Big Adventure does not qualify for this free trial.
Your progress, saves, and trophies will carry over to the full game should you choose to purchase any of the titles after the game trial expires. The Game Trials for Death Stranding Director’s Cut and Sackboy: A Big Adventure are available until midnight on October 28, 2021.
Are you going to try either of these two games through this opportunity? Let us know in the comments below.
