[Update: These titles are set to be removed imminently. If you still wish to record their respective licenses to your PSN account, then you need to do it right now. As in Right Now.]

Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that it will be closing down its “PS Plus Collection” this spring — The collection represents a selection of 19 best-selling PS4 titles, readily available to all PS5 PlayStation Plus subscribers. Access to the library will end on May 9.

The PS Plus Collection is a who’s who of PS4 hits, and includes titles such as God of War, Batman: Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Resident Evil 7, The Last of Us Remastered, Until Dawn, Fallout 4, Days Gone, and Monster Hunter: World, among many others. Given the pedigree of the titles on offer,the collection is certainly one of the most inviting aspects of the PlayStation Plus subscription.

SIE confirmed that all registered titles will still be readily available to players after the collection is removed, so be sure to jump in and “log” all the games from the PS Plus Collection before the fated date — That way they’ll always be available to redownload from the PlayStation Store, because you don’t have enough of a backlog already, of course. All titles will also remain available for purchase.

PlayStation Plus launched its revamped, tier-based subscription service in the summer of 2022. This variant of the classic service, structured to compete with the Xbox Game Pass service, offers PlayStation users access to a variety of brand-new, recent, and classic PlayStation games on a monthly basis, with rotating titles, beta access, and other bonuses.

The PS Plus Collection will be removed from the PlayStation Store on May 9.
