More games announced for PlayStation Plus.
Sony’s revamped PlayStation Plus launches in less than a month with new tiers and a bunch of benefits for those who subscribe to the more expensive versions. This week Sony took to the blog to announce a slate of games confirmed for the new PS+ tiers, as well as discuss some of the more intricate rigmarole of how the service will work.
While we already knew that Sony would be bringing back select classic games on the PS4/PS5, today’s blog post confirms that not only will digital versions be available for select games to people who already own them, but you’ll be able to play those games at no additional cost without the subscription. Certain PS1/PSP games will also be available for individual purchase.
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. When these titles are released for PS4 and PS5, players can head to PlayStation Store and download a version for the consoles at no extra cost if they already own the digital version of the title. Some of the titles will also be available for individual purchase.
Ubisoft is joining the PlayStation family. No, Sony isn’t acquiring Ubisoft. Rather Ubisoft is launching Ubisoft+ on PlayStation Plus. The subscription will be available bundled with the PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium tier subscriptions and launches alongside the new Plus membership. It includes older titles like Far Cry 3 and 4 with one or two newer titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The new PS+ tiers launch May 24 in Asia, June 2 in Japan, June 13 in North and South America, June 23 in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
