Add-Ons and DLC for your PS5 games are a major part of the gaming experience for a lot of players. Yes, you've completed the main story, but those additional missions can be as good, and sometimes even better, than the basic content in the game.

How To Find Add-Ons
Sony has made a real effort to clean up the user interface for the PS5, making it as streamlined as possible. So finding add-ons for your games is a really straightforward process:
If you already own a game that you are searching for:
- Highlight the relevant tile for your game
- Choose View Game

If you want to have a look at games you don't have on your PS5:
