How to get ‘FIFA 22’ for free on PS Plus

But in the mean time, gamers can still claim their copy of FIFA 22 through their PS Plus subscription. It’s one of the most generous offerings from the service and is definitely worth adding to your library if you haven’t done so already. Remember, even if you don’t download it straight away, simply claiming it will entitle you to the game for as long as you have an active subscription.

When could Currys restock the PS5?

If you’re hoping to pick up a new PS5 from Currys, then they are usually a fairly predictable and reliable retailer for securing new stock.

Based on previous stock patterns, we can expect Currys to restock the console at least once a month, but when will the next drop take place?

The last drop from Currys began on April 12 and didn’t sell out until a few days later. There were plenty of hefty bundles included in that drop, hence why it lasted so long, but as usual the standalone consoles were the first to go.

It’s now been a month since we last saw them restock the console, so could we expect some more coming through soon? We’re confident we’ll have an update from them in the coming days.

Do I need an extra dualsense controller?

Some of the bundles at ShopTo and Game come included with an extra dualsense controller but will you actually need to use one?

That depends on a few factors but chances are, if you’re planning to be gaming for long sessions then it’s always good to have a second controller that can be swapped out and charged when the battery starts to get low.

It’s also pretty essential if you’re hoping to play some two-player games locally such as It Takes Two, one of our favorite games on the PS5.

In our review we said: “It’s the natural next step for a PlayStation controller and it’s arguably the best thing about the console. A second one is an essential addition for everyone but the most antisocial player.”

Is ‘Horizon Forbidden West’ worth it?

Since it was released in February 2022, Horizon Forbidden West (£59.99, Argos.co.uk) has been one of the PS5’s bestselling titles and that isn’t an accident. A lot of the PS5 bundles that we’ve seen since March have included healthy supplies of the game, alongside Gran Turismo 7, so chances are if you’re on the market for a PS5, you’ll be picking up one of those titles.

Be Horizon Forbidden West actually any good? As you might expect from a first-party Sony title – yes, yes it is.

We’ve spent plenty of time playing the game and we can confidently say it’s one of the best looking titles currently available for the console.

In our review, we said: “While Horizon Forbidden West takes great leaps in its visual and story presentation, it stays the path with its gameplay, making small but notable additions that improve the experience.

Not much has changed since Zero Dawnbut when that gameplay revolves around hunting mechanical dinosaurs, why would you want it to?”

What PS5 bundles are available from ShopTo?

ShopTo has been a fairly reliable place to pick up a new PS5 console. When they restock, they tend to do so frequently and they last for a decent amount of time. Looking at their latest drop, that continues to be the case.

As you would expect, the cheaper bundles are the ones to go first but there are still some fairly good deals to be had. The cheapest bundle currently available is the PS5 packaged with Horizon Forbidden West that normally retails for £499.99 but this one also includes an extra dualsense controller, bringing the price up to £559.85 (Shopto.net).

Another bundle also includes a copy of Horizon, but also has a copy of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga included for good measure (£589.85, Shopto.net). It’s the perfect game for young children and Star Wars fans alike, so it’s definitely worth considering just for those two titles alone.
