PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers have been surprised this week with a new free trial version for download. Since PS Plus Premium launched in mid-2022, one of the benefits of this new level of service has been the ability to play demos of various games available on the PlayStation Store. Now a new game has been added to this series of trials and it happens to be one of the best RPGs of the last decade.
Now available to download thanks to PS Plus Premium, Persona 5 Royal is the latest game to get a new trial version. In total, this demo of Persona 5 Royal runs for four hours, which is long enough to give those viewing the title this way a good idea of what it’s all about. Unfortunately, this trial version is not permanently available, but it won’t be leaving the PlayStation Store any time soon. Instead, subscribers have until January 31, 2024 to play this demo for themselves. Then once the four-hour threshold is reached with this trial period, subscribers can only play more of it Persona 5 Royal if they choose to buy the game outright.
As usual, there are some caveats to this situation. For starters, and as mentioned earlier, trial versions of games are only available through PS Plus Premium, meaning PS Plus Essential and PS Plus Extra subscribers will not be able to check out Persona 5 Royal for himself. In addition, the version of P5R which can be downloaded in the form of a trial version only extends to the PS5 edition of the game. This means that those who want to download the PS4 version of the game will not be able to do so.
Go give you Persona 5 Royal a whirl now that this trial version is available via PS Plus Premium? And what version of PS Plus do you subscribe to for yourself? Let me know in the comments or message me on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
