‘Ghost of Tsushima’ Director’s Cut, ‘NBA 2K22’ And More Coming To The New PlayStation Plus
by Sage Ashford
Sony’s PlayStation Plus service is about to get a lot bigger. It is merging with PlayStation Now, and Sony recently confirmed just a few of the games coming to the service’s higher tiers when it launches in June.
For PlayStation 5, subscribers can expect Death Stranding Director’s Cut, Demon’s Souls, Destruction AllStars, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Returnal on day one. They’ll also be able to play third-party titles as well, including The Artful Escape, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Control: Ultimate Edition, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Mortal Kombat 11, and NBA 2K22. For PlayStation 4, dozens more titles will be made available, including Bloodborne, Celeste, God of War, and Naruto Shipuuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4.
Subscribers paying for the higher-tiered PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium plans will also get access to classic games, many of which will have better frame rates and resolutions. Sony also mentioned that some PlayStation and PSP titles will get a new UI for players to save whenever — or even have access to a rewind button.
Players who aren’t subscribers to PlayStation Plus will see a benefit as well. Those who have bought select titles from the original PlayStation and PSP generation won’t have to buy them again, or sign up for PlayStation Plus to play them on PS4 or PS5. They’ll simply be able to download a new version for consoles at no additional price if they already own a digital copy.
Lastly, subscribers to the Premium service will gain access to time-limited trials of certain games — up to two hours of gameplay with all trophies and save data retained for subscribers who decided to purchase the tested title. Currently, the time-limited trials will include games like Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Horizon Forbidden West, Cyberpunk 2077, Farming Simulator 22, Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, and WWE 2K22.
The new PlayStation Plus launches June 13th in North and South America.
