PlayStation Plus is killing off its best perk

PlayStation Plus is killing off its best perk

PlayStation Plus will soon be getting rid of the PlayStation 5 exclusive PS Plus Collection.

If you’re a PlayStation 5 owner with a PS Plus subscription, you’re going to want to pay attention because the service will soon be losing one of its best perks. Don’t panic though. There is one thing you can do to avoid missing out.

Let’s begin by recapping March’s PS Plus offerings. Essential tier subscribers can currently get their hands on Battlefield 2042, Minecraft Dungeons and Code Vein which many have deemed to be a rather disappointing line-up. Extra and premium tier folks have had a much more successful month. Tomorrow, on 21 March, 17 new titles will join the platform including Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Ghostwire: Tokyo, and day one release Tchia. Today though, I’m here to remind you that PlayStation Plus will soon be losing the PS Plus Collection.

Take a look at day one release Tchia in action below.

If you’re unsure what the PS Plus Collection is, it’s essentially a library of games available only to PS5 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription to any tier. The collection launched with 20 classic PlayStation 4 titles. That way, if the PS5 was your gateway into the world of PlayStation, you could get caught up with the ‘classics’. Personally for me, it was the perfect excuse to catch up on a couple of titles I never got around to playing.

The PS Plus Collection includes Batman: Arkham Knight, Battlefield 1, Bloodborne, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy, Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human, Fallout 4, Final Fantasy 15, God of War, Infamous Second Son, Monster Hunter World, Mortal Kombat X, Persona 5, Ratchet and Clank, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, The Last Guardian, The Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Until Dawn.

The bad news is that the collection is disappearing for good on 9 May 2023. Many of these titles have since popped up in the extra tier catalogue but if you’re a PS5 owner and don’t want to miss out, you can still add all of these games to your library and then even after the feature is shut down, you’ll still be able to download all games at a later date, so get going.
