PlayStation’s revamped PS Plus subscription service launched in the UK last month–and now Sony is giving gamers a free trial.

PlayStation users who were unsure about signing up for the new service–including access to the massive gaming library–can now test it for free for a whole week.

PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra, or Premium offers gamers a range of benefits, including access to a gaming catalogue, gaming trials, online multiplayer, exclusive discounts and more.

A PlayStation Plus Essential price one-month subscription costs £6.99, a three-month subscription costs £19.99, and a 12-month subscription costs £49.99, while a PlayStation Plus Extra one-month subscription costs £10.99, a three-month subscription costs £31.99, and a 12-month subscription costs £83.99.

The most expensive version is PlayStation Plus Premium—a one-month subscription costs £13.49, a three-month subscription costs £39.99, and 12-month subscription costs £99.99.

But if any gamers are unsure about spending that much money on the PlayStation Plus, they can now try it for free for a week without paying anyway.

How to get PlayStation Plus for free

To get a free trial for one week, head to the PlayStation Plus website. You must not already be a Plus subscriber.

You can try a trial of either Premium or Extra and must choose if you’d like to sign up for a one-month, three-month, or 12-month subscription. But you’ll be able to cancel this before the free week is up if you change your mind and don’t want to get charged.

Be aware that you must sign up with payment information, and the subscription will start after the week’s trial unless you cancel it before. If you cancel the trial before the week is up, you will still have access to the subscription for a full week.
