Bugsnax comes out for PlayStation and PC in just a couple of days, and the reviews have been mostly positive with it described as a “fascinating spin on creature collecting“. While the game will be available for the cost of nothing on PS5 provided you boast a PS Plus subscription, you can add it to your PS Plus library on PS4 so that you can play it for free when you make the upgrade to next-gen. Here you’ll discover how to add Bugsnax to your library.
Said to be a “fantastic blend of bizarre and brilliant,” Bugsnax is a game which has been a mystery for many since its State of Play debut. Although it’s not the secret horror game many internet theories had suggested, the title is said to have a lot of depth and realistic complexity with its characters despite the overly cutesy and kid-friendly appearance.
While the game sounds like a lot of fun with surprisingly realistic and complex personalities, below you’ll discover how to add it to your PS Plus library on PS4 so you can later play it for free on PS5.
Is Bugsnax free to play on PS4?
Bugsnax is not free to play on PS4.
It was announced back in October that Bugsnax will launch for free on PS5 as part of PS Plus, but the game is not free to play on PS4 regardless of any active PS Plus subscription.
This is disappointing for current-gen owners who failed to pre-order a PS5 or are simply planning to buy one later.
However, while you cannot play Bugsnax for free on the PS4 console, you can add it to your PS Plus library so you can play it for free when you make the upgrade to PS5.
How to add Bugsnax to PS4 library
You will be able to add Bugsnax to your PS Plus library for PS4 on November 12th.
The ability to add Bugsnax to your PS Plus library on PS4 was revealed by Sony’s This Month on PlayStation Plus.
You will need to keep your subscription alive for the game to remain in your collection, and you still won’t be able to play it on Sony’s current-gen console without paying a fee.
However, if you add Bugsnax to your library on PS4, it will be available to play for free on PS5 when you eventually buy the next-gen system.
