How Get PlayStation Plus on PS5

PlayStation Plus is required to play many PS5 games online. You can still play free-to-play titles without it, but certain paid games like FIFA and Call of Duty will require a PlayStation Plus subscription to play online.

PlayStation Plus on PS5 is the same as it was on PS4. If you already have a PS4 subscription, you can log in using the same account on PS5, and your subscription will carry over.

If you’re new to PlayStation or just starting to play online video games, this guide shows you how to get and activate a PlayStation Plus subscription for your PS5 account.

Buy a PlayStation Plus Subscription

Using the PlayStation Plus App on your console

  1. On your PS5, navigate to the PlayStation Plus app. It is the plus logo, usually in the second or third place under the “Games” tab.

Use a PlayStation Plus Voucher Code

If you’ve been gifted a PS Plus Code, you can use this method to activate your subscription. You can buy PS Plus codes from most online or retail brick-and-mortar stores, including Amazon, GameStop, and Walmart.

The PlayStation Plus voucher code should be from the same region as your PlayStation Account. Look at the flag on top of the subscription voucher (both physical and digital cards should have it). Note also you won’t be able to transfer subscriptions to another account. Therefore, make sure you redeem the codes on the correct profile.
