PlayStation Plus gives subscribers access to online multiplayer or live service gaming and offers a selection of free games each month ranging from niche independent titles to critically acclaimed AAA games. This month’s offers could surprise and delight players, especially fans of The Last of Us.
The Last of Us is enjoying a cultural resurgence following the January 15 premiere of its HBO adaptation. The series stars Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) as Joel Miller and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) as Ellie. The show received critical acclaim, with many praising Pascal’s performance as well as the series’ loyalty to the game.
In a December interview with The New Yorker, Druckmann described how the adaptation sought to avoid the pitfalls of previous video game adaptations. “Joel’s ability to dodge bullets is the least important thing. Incidentally, that’s where video game adaptations have so often gone wrong – they try to replicate the action. It’s just the wrong medium. That’s that. That’s that,” he said.
To promote the new TV series, PlayStation has included The Last of Us Part 1 in its PlayStation Plus Premium program. However, players won’t be able to access the full game: according to a tweet from PlayStation, PlayStation Plus will only grant access to a limited two-hour trial of the game, not the full release.
This may come as a disappointment to some players looking to experience everything The Last of Us Part I has to offer, but subscribers still have access to other free games this month, including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Fallout 76.
Players will also have the opportunity to enjoy The Last of Us Part 1 on Steam in March, where it will make its PC debut and will also be Steam Deck compatible.
