The PlayStation Plus Collection will disappear in May
Sony is closing the PlayStation Plus Collection, the line of PS4 essentials that PS Plus subscribers can download and play on PS5 at no extra cost.
An email sent to subscribers states that the 19-game collection will disappear on May 9th and subscribers have until that date to add their games to their game library. Sony hasn’t given a reason why the collection is closing, but also clarifies that other PS Plus perks, like the monthly games, will not be affected. Here is the full message below:
As of May 9th, the PlayStation Plus Collection will no longer be available as a PlayStation Plus benefit. You can add any of the titles from the PlayStation Plus collection to your game library before May 9th and play at any time with an active PlayStation Plus membership.
The PlayStation Plus catalog of games, monthly games and other existing benefits will not be affected by this change.
Thank you for your continued support of PlayStation Plus.
The PlayStation Plus Collection launched alongside the PS5 as an added bonus for those owners. In a way, it served as a mini version of Xbox’s Game Pass, albeit only with last-gen titles. The collection has remained largely the same since 2020, with a few titles making the list and only Persona 5 being dropped from the original lineup last year. The PS Plus Collection currently consists of the following titles:
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- battlefield 1
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombie Chronicles Edition
- Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
- Last days
- Detroit: Become Human
- failure 4
- Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition
- God of War (2018)
- Notorious: Second Son
- The Last Guardian
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Monster Hunter: World
- Mortal Kombat X
- Ratchet & Clank (2016)
- Resident Evil VII: Biohazard
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
- Until dawn
Last year, Sony added two premium subscription tiers to PlayStation Plus, giving those members access to a much larger (and more regularly updated) library of games across multiple PlayStation generations. Premium members can now access most, if not all, of these titles, so Sony might want to encourage standard PS Plus subscribers to upgrade. Regardless, grab these games now if you haven’t already before the May 9 deadline creeps up on you.
