A handful of retro games likely to appear in PlayStation Plus’ upcoming premium tier have apparently been leaked online.
Tekken 2, Worms Armageddon, Worms World Party and Mr. Driller for the original PlayStation have all appeared on the PSN backend, along with Ridge Racers 2 for PSP.
Reddit user the_andshrew has spotted the hidden games, as reported by Eurogamer, which will likely be part of the most expensive PS Plus tier when the service is updated in June.
New PlayStation Plus: Games confirmed so far
The premium tier, which will cost users $119.99 per year, includes 340 retro games from PS1, PS2 and PSP, as well as the ability to stream PS3 games and access to around 400 PS4 and PS5 games , which are included in the previous extra tier.
PlayStation itself has yet to confirm which games are coming to the service, meaning these leaks aren’t official and need to be taken with a pinch of salt, but the games have definitely been added to the PSN backend complete with artwork.
With the update set to release as early as May 23 across most of Asia, PlayStation will likely reveal the full list of games soon, especially since they’ve already been leaked online.
The service is expected to launch on June 13 in the US and June 22 in Europe, having finally been unveiled in March after months of reports and speculation about Sony releasing a competitor for Xbox Game Pass.
The services aren’t the same, though, most notably in that the new PS Plus won’t be offering first-party games as part of the service on the day of its release, only adding them much later.
