How to get yourself a free copy of Bugsnax

The PlayStation Plus scheme has been around for a long time. You pay either a monthly subscription or an annual fee to sign up for PlayStation Plus.

Once you have done that, then you’re able to gain access to free games every month.

Once you have your PS5 setup, simply go to the store, go to the PS Plus section, and download the game for free.

The game has 2 trophy lists too

The developers of the game – Young Horses – also provided an update on Bugsnax and how trophies work with the game:

“We also wanted to provide some insight for the Trophy hunters out there: Bugsnax will have standalone Trophy lists for both PS5 and PS4, which means… you get double the fun, and double the Trophies! We’re also looking into supporting save transfers from your PS4 to your PS5, which would be added in a future update.”

Bugsnax will be free to download to Playstation 5 owners with PS Plus on launch day. It’s not free for PS4 owners.
