Sony revealed the PlayStation Plus November 2020 lineup via the PlayStation Blog, and there are some fun announcements. For example, Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition and Middle Earth: Shadows of War will both be available for the PlayStation 4 versions of the game. As for PlayStation 5 owners, they’ll be able to very intelligently talk about Bugsnax, as it will be the first PS5 PlayStation Plus game.
Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition is the Metroidvania starring the Hollow Knight as it goes through Hallownest. As this is the extended edition, people get all four extra contact packs, with new areas and enemies, right away. Normally, the game costs $14.99, and it has been available on the PS4 since September 2018.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is the open-world follow-up to Shadow of Mordor. It once again follows Talion, a ranger sharing a body with Celebrimbor, an elf lord. Which means you have special abilities. Your goal is to attempt to fight against Sauron and his forces, with lots of his minions ready to become your sworn enemies via the Nemesis System. It launched on the PS4 back in October 2017 and usually costs $49.99.
As for Bugsnax, it will be a PS5 launch game. There’s normally a cross-buy system in effect for this PS4 and PS5 adventure where snacking on food-shaped bugs changes people’s appearances. However, the PlayStation Blog is very specific about saying this PlayStation Plus offer will only extend to the PS5 version of the game. Its normal price will be $24.99.
Hollow Knight and Shadow of Mordor will both be available as part of the PlayStation Plus November 2020 selection starting on November 3, 2020, while Bugsnax will appear once the game launches. The two PS4 games will be available until November 30, 2020, while Bugsnax will be free until January 4, 2021.
Also, as a reminder, people can claim the October 2020 PlayStation Plus games until November 2, 2020. They are Vampyr and Need for Speed: Payback.
