Loads of free PSN avatars added ahead of PS5 launch

If you’re looking to pimp your PlayStation Network profile ahead of the PS5’s launch next month, Sony have given you plenty of more free options to do so.

A total of 71 PSN avatars have been added, featuring a mix of favourite exclusive franchises including God of War, Uncharted, The Last of Us: Part II, Bloodborne, Gravity Rush, Ape Escape, Shadow of the Colossus, The Last Guardian, Ratchet, and more. Oh, Knack’s there too of course.

If you fancy changing your PlayStation Network profile image, you can head over to my.playstation.com to sign in and grab one of these new avatars. The full range can be viewed below, having been compiled by Resetera user scar654 – let’s take a peek!

We’re unsure whether or not this is a move by Sony to expand the number of PSN customisation options available to users before the PS5 launch on November 12th (19th if you’re in the UK like us). Although a fairly small gesture, it helps to spotlight and celebrate the many franchises that make up the PlayStation’s diverse library, both new and old.

While Sony are definitely looking ahead with the release of their new console, they won’t be turning their backs on the PS4’s library of back to back hits. An overwhelming majority of games will be backwards compatible with the PS5, some of which will receive next-gen upgrades as well as little shot in the arm via the system’s boost mode feature.

This is underlined by Sony’s recent announcement of the PlayStation Plus Collection. Everyone with an active PS+ subscription will be able to redeem a growing library of lest-gen games which already includes:

  • God of War
  • The Last of Us: Remastered
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  • Battlefield 1
  • Monster Hunter World
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • The Last Guardian
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Infamous: Second Son
  • Days Gone
  • Bloodborne
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Batman Arkham Night
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 5
  • Until Dawn
  • Resident Evil: Biohazard

The PlayStation 5 officially releases on November 12th in selected territories, then the following week on November 19th for other regions. Meanwhile, Microsoft’s Xbox Series X|S will be first out of the gates on November 10th.
