PlayStation Plus on PC — how to stream your PS Plus Premium games

By Lee Brady,

One benefit that PS Plus Premium subscribers have that they might not be aware of is access to PlayStation Plus on PC — a replacement for Sony’s previous PC cloud streaming service, PS Now.

While the service is strictly for streaming PS Plus games, meaning no game downloads at all, and while it might not boast the entire PlayStation Plus Premium games library, it’s still an excellent service if you have the means to access it. For those wondering how to do just that, whether you can earn trophies by doing so, and just which games you can gain access to, check out our guide as we try to answer as many of your questions as possible.

This is a part of our PlayStation Plus guide, helping you negotiate every tier, price, and game.

What do I need to access PlayStation Plus on PC?

Well, first things first: you’ll need a PlayStation Plus Premium account. While PlayStation Plus Extra will grant you access on PS4 and PS5 to a considerable library of downloadable games, cloud streaming is only available to Premium subscribers.

Make sure that the highest tier account in your region is Premium and not Deluxe. Deluxe accounts cannot access cloud gaming services due to region issues and so, tragically, cannot join Premium subscribers PlayStation Plus on PC.

Where can I download PlayStation Plus on PC?

You can download the PlayStation Plus on PC app on the PlayStation website via the support page — which is here if you’re in the US, and here if you’re in the UK. For your home region, it’s best to navigate to the support page via the PlayStation website yourself, just to make sure you’re download the right version of the client.

Can I access PlayStation Plus on PC via Mac?

Unfortunately not, my Apple-logo-biting friend. While you can access PlayStation Remote Play on both PC and Mac, there is no compatibility thus far for PlayStation Plus on Mac. It’s a real shame, as there should feasibly be very few barriers in the way for a streaming service to run on the platform — as it stands, however, you’re simply out of luck.

Can I earn trophies via PlayStation Plus on PC?

This is the big one, and thankfully, the answer is a resounding yes. Looking to put a few more hours into Ghost of Tsushima and get closer to Living Legend platinum trophy? Let Days Gone pass you by first time around and now interested in gunning to become the One Percenter? Now you can do so from the comfort of your office desk or while lazing on your laptop, an approach officially endorsed by TrueTrophies.

Will my save file on PC carry over to my PS4/PS5?

The answer is definitely. In fact, this is one of the best features of PlayStation Plus on PC — the ability to save your game on PS5 or PS4 and pick up your adventure on your laptop or PC feels almost like magic when done right.

If you’re playing a game entirely via streaming, there’s nothing to worry about — your save file will be stored directly in cloud storage and your game will know to use your cloud storage file regardless of where you stream it. If you’re playing your game on console and want to move that save file over to PC, you’ll need to make sure the save file is properly uploaded to cloud storage — check this support page out for further instructions as per your console of choice.

playstation plus pcIt doesn't get much more multiplayer than The Elder Scrolls Online.

Can I play multiplayer games via PlayStation Plus on PC?

The answer to this question is yes (or yes* with an ominous asterisk). If the game you’re playing has online functionality and its servers are still active, you should be able to play online multiplayer no problem — that’s the unqualified yes.

The more ominous yes* is if you’re looking to play splitscreen or local multiplayer, which you absolutely can do, but only up to two players on any PC. You’ll need to pair up a second DualShock 4 controller to your PC to do so, and four-player games are a no-go, but otherwise — yes*.

Can I use voice chat while playing via PlayStation Plus on PC?

This is another firm yes, but there is a catch — your headset will have to run through your computer rather than your DualShock 4. For most of us, that’s no problem, but if you’re use to playing your PlayStation games with a headset plugged directly into your controller, you’ll need a different set-up when playing PlayStation Plus on PC.

playstation plus pcPlayStation Plus on PC has a host of PS2 and PS3 games on offer as well.

What PlayStation Games can I play on PlayStation Plus on PC?

Another big question! The answer will, of course, vary for players depending on their region, but for the most part Premium subscribers using PlayStation Plus on PC will have access to a veritable treasure trove of PS4, PS3 and PS2 titles.

The number of titles available aren’t quite as high as they are on console — PS Plus subscribers on PS5 should have access to over 850 titles by our count (as of July 2022), whereas PlayStation Plus on PC doesn’t quite reach 500 titles. Perhaps something to bear in mind if you’re thinking of signing up solely on PC, but if you’re already using PS Plus Premium on console, that’s nearly 500 additional games on your PC for the same price.
