The year 2024 has just started, and we’re already eager for some excitement. Despite the somewhat cynical nature of Blue Monday, it’s hard to ignore that January often feels quite dreab. Luckily, PlayStation has stepped in with a free offering to brighten our spirits.

The best part? This free download is available without a PS Plus subscription, making it an even sweeter deal. It may not be as headline-grabbing as the latest PlayStation console that’s causing a buzz, but it’s certainly a welcome bonus.

Eager to know more? Well, the wait is over. PlayStation users can now download six unique avatars from the anticipated game, Rise of the Ronin, at no cost. With its release date set for March 22, the wait for this Ghost of Tsushima-inspired RPG seems longer than ever.

How stunning does Rise of the Ronin look?

Rise of the Ronin promises an immersive experience, but Sony understands our impatience. In a thoughtful move, they’re offering these avatars for free as a token of appreciation. Although small, this gesture is meaningful to many.

To claim your Rise of the Ronin avatars, simply log into your PlayStation account and individually select each avatar. While some users may find this process a bit tedious, the outcome is rewarding – six fantastic avatars at your disposal. If you encounter any issues, ensure that your location settings are correct, especially if you’re claiming through a region-specific link.

With these avatars in hand, we’re all set to count down the days until Rise of the Ronin is finally released.

PlayStation gamers can download a gorgeous RPG free, no PS Plus needed

In addition to the RPG excitement, PlayStation is offering a stunning freebie for no PS Plus subscribers. This time, it’s a chance to delve into an upcoming RPG without any cost.

Gone are the days when playable demos were a staple in console gaming. While they’re still around on platforms like Steam, they’re less common on the newer consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, unless you’re a PS Plus Premium member.

The game in the spotlight is Granblue Fantasy: Relink, developed by Crygames Inc. This free demo, available for PlayStation 5 and 4, offers a taste of its Story Mode and Quest Mode, either solo or in co-op. Playing the demo even unlocks rewards for the full game. Granblue Fantasy: Relink, an action RPG promising grand adventures, is set to release on PC and PlayStation on February 1, 2024.

PlayStation surprise free download available now, no PS Plus required

But that’s not all. PlayStation has another surprise: a free download that doesn’t even require a console. All you need is a smartphone or PC. This unique offer includes Honkai: Star Rail, accompanied by three redeemable codes for a collection of items and credits, thanks to HoYoverse’s recent update. Remember, these codes are limited and region-specific, so act fast.

Lastly, for fans of basketball and freebies, PlayStation presents a delightful offer related to 3on3 Freestyle. In celebration of its third crossplay anniversary, Joycity is giving away a ‘3rd Anniversary Gift Pack’ for the game. This pack includes a variety of in-game bonuses and is available until January 31, 2024, for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox players.

PlayStation is also treating its users to a range of free downloads this January, and many don’t require a PS Plus subscription.
