Sony reveals modern and classic games coming to revamped PlayStation Plus

PlayStation Plus Extra Essential Deluxe games

Something old, something new

The launch date of the revamped PlayStation Plus service is closing in fast. Today, Sony revealed some of the games coming in the launch time frame, spread across the Essential, Extra, and Premium PlayStation Plus plans.

The new plans are set to go live on June 13 for the Americas. They’re split into three tiers: Essential, Extra, and Premium. Essential comes in at $60 a year, while Extra goes up to $100 a year and Premium sits at $120 annually.

With Essential, the regular PS Plus benefits will still keep rolling out. Most significantly, that means the lineup of monthly games. An upgrade to Extra or Premium, however, starts to open up the broader catalog of games, both recent and not-so-recent.

For both Extra and Premium, subscribers get a catalog of PlayStation 4 and PS5 games to play. These seem similar to the PlayStation Plus Collection that rolled out with the PS5’s launch. There’s a pretty decent list of PlayStation Studios games, as well as some third-party entries.

Bringing back classics

On the Premium side, the highest-tier subscribers also get some of the classics. Some will have better resolutions and frame rates compared to their original versions, or arrive as the remastered versions. Several PS2 games are the PS4 remastered versions, for example. PlayStation 3 games are also available, via streaming.

One note in particular stuck out: “Also, players who have previously purchased the digital version of select games from the original PlayStation and PSP generation will not have to make a separate purchase or sign up to PlayStation Plus to play these titles on PS4 or PS5.” So if you’ve bought these before, they’re back up now for no additional cost. Once they’re released, owners can head to the PlayStation Store and download a version for no additional cost.

Lastly, Sony also spotlighted some of the time-limited game trials coming to PlayStation Plus Premium owners. For now, it’s a short list: Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves CollectionHorizon Forbidden WestCyberpunk 2077Farming Simulator 22Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and WWE 2K22. It’s expected to sit at about two hours for most games, and time will only count down when you’re in-game.

A monthly refresh is locked in too. For all PlayStation Plus owners, that includes the monthly game lineup that we’ve always had. An additional refresh will occur midway through each month with new games for PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium plans too, though the number of games will vary.
