Free Marvel’s Spider-Man For PS4 On PS Plus?
The subscription to the PlayStation Plus, or summarized PS Plus, is a monthly payment format. With this, its users can play some games online, get special discounts on their purchases, have early access to titles before their release, and some games free every month for them to enjoy without paying for them.
This practice has been constant since the PS4 was launched in the United States. Now, hundreds of thousands of users around the world pay their monthly fee to this service religiously, eagerly awaiting the next free games that they will be able to enjoy for being loyal customers to Sony.
That is why the topic of knowing what the free video games of the month are is a vital topic for gamers. When a rumor arises that the next title to be part of the free collection would be Spider-Man of 2018, many will renew their subscription just for the chance to enjoy it if they can’t buy it directly. Recently this rumor was spread on the Internet through the VG247 website, which stated that some users saw in the official PlayStation store that Spider-Man was “free” with the logo and the classic color of the games given through PS Plus. Above this indication, there was the final price of the game as if it differentiated Plus users from regular users.
Now, this website still warns that the image in question could be true, but it would be a well-known platform bug.
Could it be a store mistake? Yes, it is possible. The company may not have noticed that the error they made the previous month had happened again. However, when they added it to the shopping bag, it appeared with its regular price or with its respective discount, but definitely not free.
For its part, Sony only confirmed that one of the video games that they will give away for a month would be Call of Duty: WWII, allowing it to be downloaded from May 26 for all PS Plus users. The official list of games for PS Plus is still unconfirmed in June, but it will not belong to really discover if Spider-Man will be on it or not.
