The free PS Plus games for September 2020 will take you back to the battle royale that helped start it all, as well as bringing some downright fierce 1v1 competition, as the latest free PS Plus games are PUBG and Street Fighter 5.

PUBG, or PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, blends military fiction with dystopian future entertainment. It's like Fall Guys but you shoot at each other instead of trying to shove each other off of seesaws. Meanwhile, Street Fighter 5 builds on a more than 20 year history of fighting game greatness with tons of new and returning characters - just in time for a new era of competition on PlayStation.

Both games will be available to claim starting on Tuesday, September 1, which is also when August's selection of free PS Plus games will go away. Make sure you claim the new duo by the time their free offer expires on October 5. Here's some more detail about each of them.

PUBG helped kick off the battle royale craze (before Fortnite completely ran away with it), and it's still an ever-expanding platform for 100-player showdowns. Drop down solo or in squads, search for gear, use vehicles to your advantage, and engage with care in tactical battles where planning and a cool head are just as important as a quick trigger finger. Years of updates have built PUBG from a thrilling concept into a fully featured shooter, and now's a great time to start playing.

The latest entry in the series that defined fighting games has also done a lot of growing since it first arrived back in 2016. Dozens of characters present endless opportunities for matchups, whether you want to head straight into online competition or catch up on Shadaloo affairs with the story mode. This is also a great time to start playing Street Fighter 5 on PS4, since Sony will kick off its official SF5 PS4 tournaments starting on September 4, with challengers invited to compete in both region and skill-based brackets for special prizes.
