PS Plus gets bonus PS4 game for February 2023 in select regions

By Lee Brady,

PS Plus is offering a bonus PS4 game for February 2023 — Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris — for PS Plus Essential subscribers in the Asia region. Lucky PS Plus subscribers in that area will be getting five games this month.

The PS Plus Essential games for February 2023 was already set to deliver a bonus game for most subscribers in the shape of Destiny 2's 2020 DLC, Beyond Light. However, it seems lucky PS Plus Essential subscribers in Asian regions will receive a bonus PS4 game this February, and it's hardly one of the best action RPGs on PS5 and PS4, it's the thought that counts.

Sword Art Online PS PlusSword Art Online comes as a bonus to PS Plus Essential.

PS Plus Essential adds Sword Art Online to February 2023 games in Asia

Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris might sound like your favourite anime just caught something terrible on vacation, but it is in fact a breezy 2020 action RPG from Bandai Namco. The SAO games can be a little hit or miss, and it seems Alicization Lycoris is more the latter with complaints of padding and pace issues. These games are always big hits with fans, though — especially in Asia — so we're sure plenty of PS Plus Essential players are thrilled regardless.

It feels rather greedy to want yet another title for this month's selection when we already have games like the excellent Mafia Definitive Edition on the way, so we'll just say "lucky you, Asia" and leave it at that. Applicable players can download this month's games on February 7th, 2023 — let us know in the comments if you wish you were eligible for this one, and remember to download your free PS4 games on PS5 before the PS Plus Collection end date arrives.
