November's PlayStation Plus games includes PS5 launch title, Bugsnax

By Sean Carey,
Sony has announced next month's PlayStation Plus games, which includes a rather nice surprise for PlayStation 5 owners. In November, PS Plus subscribers can grab Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition, and Bugsnax for PS5 when the next-gen console launches from November 12th.


Bugsnax will be the first PS5 game to join PlayStation Plus. You'll play as an investigative journalist who travels to Snaktooth Island, which just so happens to be home to strange half-bug half-snack creatures. Aside from capturing all 100 of the different critters, you'll also be reuniting some the island's inhabitants who have strangely gone missing. Bugsnax will be available to all PS5 PlayStation Plus subscribers from November 12th up until January 4th, 2021.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War

The sequel to 2014's Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War will once again see you taking on the Dark Lord Sauron's forces. You will travel behind enemy lines to create an army and destroy Mordor from within. Shadow of War will be available to download from November 3rd to November 30th.

Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition

Hollow Knight is a fantastic 2D platformer where you'll "descend into a sprawling underground world of Hollownest to battle tainted creatures and befriend bizarre bugs." In Hollownest, you'll uncover a "kingdom's ancient history," while unlocking new skills, and taking on bosses which will test both your combat and platforming skills. This one will be available to download from November 3rd to November 30th.

Don't forget to download October's PS Plus games: Vampyr and Need for Speed: Payback.
