Sony has revealed the next batch of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers — Control: Ultimate Edition, Destruction AllStars (PS5 only) and Concrete Genie — which you can claim from February 2nd. The inclusion of Control has caused some outcry given how the game’s next-gen upgrade has been handled.
Back in August, publisher 505 Games announced there would be no free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions for those who bought the base game on PS4 or Xbox One. Players who did buy it and wanted to revisit Control with ray-tracing and other upgrades needed to pick up the ultimate edition. Some of those who bought Control: Ultimate Edition in anticipation of the PS5 version arriving on February 2nd aren’t exactly thrilled that it’ll be available to PS Plus members for free.

Sony previously said Destruction All-Stars will be a PS Plus freebie for two months when the game debuts. It was supposed to be a PS5 launch title but Sony delayed it to February. The company has also released its latest State of Play video, which offers a deep dive into the destruction derby game.
Concrete Genie, meanwhile, is a charming action-adventure game that debuted in 2019. You’ll have until March 1st to claim that and Control: Ultimate Edition, and until April 5th to snag Destruction AllStars. Meanwhile, you can still pick up January’s free PS Plus games — Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Greedfall and the PS5 version of Maneater — for free until February 1st.
