PS4 update: Download a surprise PlayStation game bonus today

New PS4 games are available to download this weekend, and there’s plenty of trials to try out too.

Some are full games that can be downloaded for free, like Fortnite Battle Royale, while others are demos that last for a limited time.

And PlayStation gamers looking for something new this weekend have the perfect opportunity to try out the latest releases.

Sony adds new content regularly to the PlayStation Network, with only Nintendo beating them when it comes to regular demo content.

And May has gotten off to a good start, with new PSN demos available to download right now on PlayStation consoles. Gamers this month can download and play the new Island Saver game right now.

Weighing in at less than 2GB, the new content also comes with a 3+ age rating, making it suitable for most. The game has only just arrived on PS4 and received good reviews on its debut on console and Steam.

The PlayStation Network launch happened on May 13 in the UK and Island Saver is available on the PSN in the US as well.


The game itself is an action-adventure title that focuses on cleaning up islands, spread across three levels.

“A group of amazing islands need your help,” a message from developers Stormcloud Games Limited.

“Horrid plastic waste has washed up and you need to sort it out with your trusty Trash Blaster! But look out for the Litterbugs. They love mess and they’re out to muck things up.

“You need to wash away gloop, collect litter, earn coins and rescue the bankimals! These special animals are living piggy banks and with them you can help save the Savvy Islands and make things good again.


  • Tropical jungles – the icy arctic – dusty deserts – volcanoes – explore them all as you clean up the islands.
  • 42 bankimals to save – can you rescue them all?
  • Find bankimals you can ride and use their powers to access new areas
  • Help Kiwi find his missing nest eggs.
  • Collect coins and discover spending, saving, and more.
  • While Island Saver is a free download available now, there is also a new DLC that can be paid for.
  • Island Saver – Dinosaur Island is a map expansion that’s filled with fearsome dinosaur bankimals!

“Meet Newton, Pigby’s inventor friend, and use your money sense to help him escape his debt,” the official description reads.

This latest PS4 release follows the launch of a new free weekend offer from Bethesda, who has teamed up with Sony and Microsoft.

From May 14 until May 18, PS4 and Xbox One owners can download and play Fallout 76 for free.

The bonus Fallout 76 free game download has a 5pm BST unlock time in the UK, which means fans can jump into the action later this evening.

The news was announced by Bethesda on Twitter: “It’s a whole new Appalachia. Sunrise over mountains.

“Starting Thursday – May 14th through May 18th, come experience all that Wastelanders has to offer during Fallout 76’s free to play weekend.”

Fans who enjoy the action during the free trial can purchase the full game at a reduced price for a limited time.

Gamers can also enjoy the latest PS Plus games for May 2020 if they own a subscription.

They can be claimed and downloaded today and include Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19.
