I bought a three months membership for PlayStation Plus some time ago. This membership has already expired. While it was active, I got the classic PSOne Resident Evil titles for free. Will I be able to re-download them now without having to purchase a new PSPlus membership?
You will not be able to re-download them, or play any games that you had previously downloaded & installed via Playstation Plus. If you try to download any of the games from your download history, it will not work.
However, if you later decide to renew your subscription, these games will become available for use again. They are even re-downloadable, as long as you added the games to your cart and successfully checked out before their free offer period passed.
More information can be found at PSN's Support page here.
Once your PlayStation Plus (PS+) membership expired all "free" games (and DLC) obtained will not be accessible until you renew your subscription.
Attempting to launch an expired game will launch a message that says "This content can be used if you renew the license in PlayStation Store." You'll then be redirected to the PlayStation Store, where you will be able to purchase the expired title.
If you (sign in to) resubscribe after your subscription expires, the games will work again. You will not have to re-download them.
You will not be able to play them. I am not sure if you can download them or not. PSN prompts before the purchase of these titles that they are only valid as long as your a member.
Renewing your subscriptions will open these games back up or you can purchase them. If you have not had your subscription for more than 3 months the only thing you will lose is your games saves that were in the PSN cloud.
