While some people can take video games a little too seriously, by and large the last few years have seen rising interest in virtual worlds as it becomes clear there's more to gaming than just shooting zombies, Nazis, and Nazi zombies. If you've got a PlayStation, a year of PlayStation Plus can help open up those horizons, and right now, you can save 20 percent on 12 months of access during our Black Friday Sale.

Meeting Friends

PlayStation Plus is rated 5/5 stars by verified purchasers and probably best known for being your ticket to multiplayer with friends and strangers. And if you're looking to square off with friends over a few rounds of Madden or crash the party in Deathloop, it's the only way to go. Especially if you're looking to spend time with friends, it's a great way to get together and have some fun. You'll even get custom outfits and other elements for some games.

You won't have to worry about keeping your saves, either. PlayStation Plus subscribers get 100GB of cloud storage to preserve their records and save files.

New Horizons

Another useful aspect, though, is the monthly free games that you can pick up and play. Ranging from top-selling titles to indie gems, every month there's a new set of games to try out, making it easy to get a feel for new genres and try games you might not otherwise play. And if you'd like to try a friend's game, the SharePlay feature lets you give it a spin remotely to see how it feels.

Similarly, Plus subscribers get special discounts in the PlayStation Store on top of the sale prices. You'll always have something to play and share with friends, and a new horizon to explore.

Get a PlayStation Plus 12-Month Subscription for $47.99 (reg. $59.99) with code BFSAVE20 at checkout for our special Black Friday Sale.
