Subscribers have until November 6 to claim the games.
Essential is the entry-level PlayStation Plus membership tier, which offers subscribers access to a few ‘free’ games every month.
The service’s more expensive Extra and Premium tiers, which were introduced last summer, offer subscribers access to the Game Catalogue, a library of up to 400 downloadable PS4 and PS5 games, as well as Ubisoft+ Classics, a curated selection of titles from the Assassin’s Creed publisher.
Sony increased PlayStation Plus subscription prices by up to 35% last month.
The move saw the cost of 12-month subscription plans for the service’s Essential, Extra and Premium tiers rise by $20-$40 / £10-£20 / €12-€32 depending on the chosen membership plan.
On Monday, Sony announced another Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 PlayStation 5 console bundle, which will launch alongside the game this month.
