At long last Sony has unveiled their PS Plus lineup for their upcoming relaunch next month. The company shared some of the titles that will be featured for each tier, all of which some from their vast library of titles from every single PlayStation era. This includes the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and even the PlayStation Portable, or PSP. Keep in mind that this isn’t the complete list of games, rather a teaser of the full experience. One of the bigger aspects of this new service is the PlayStation 1 PSP titles getting enhanced and being given save states, as well as improving overall performance with a rewind function.

In addition to all of these new features, Sony also revealed that if you already own purchased a title from the classic library from many years ago, you’ll be able to easily download them and play them outside of the actual PS Plus subscription. The company also topped this off by announcing that some of the classic Ubisoft titles will be included as part of the Ubisoft + Classics initiative and will launch with the revamp in June.
This package however will only be part of the PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium service. Ubisoft also revealed at the same time that their own subscription service, Ubisoft +, will be making its way to PS Plus sometime this year, as well as the Xbox Game Pass.
As for the updated list of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 titles, Sony had now added a good amount of third party developers to the catalogue. This includes some heavy hitter such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Demon Souls, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and Assassins Creed Valhalla. It’s important to remind everyone that this is merely a taste of what Sony has in store for the service, as there are roughly more than 700 games planned to be added in by next month when it launches.
They’ve also revealed some of the titles that will have the previously alluded to timed trials, confirming that the higher priced titles will give players the chance to try the game out before making a purchase. As for the PlayStation 3, they’re only going to make titles from that library be available via online streaming, meaning that they more than likely aren’t planning on emulating any titles for players to download directly. This also means that it’ll only be accessible for specific regions, as not all of them allow cloud-based services.
The revamped PS Plus will launch in the Asia region on May 24, Japan on June 2, North America and South American on June 13, and Europe, Australia, and New Zealand on June 23.
