Apparently Sony started a new program that gives new PlayStation 5 owners a select free game to go with their console.
While we can’t find an official announcement, or even a mention on PlayStation Direct, reddit poster ViolinistEfficient84 referenced an offer for a free game. Following this GadnukLimitbreak noted it was a real program, going on to say reports indicate it’s a targeted promo. Unfortunately, we can not verify the targeted promotion part, but we can confirm there is a legal page for this promotion.
