PlayStation Plus' latest free games unplayable on PS5

PlayStation Plus' latest free games unplayable on PS5

Three of this month's PlayStation Plus free titles are unplayable on PlayStation 5 consoles, Sony has confirmed.

Yesterday’s latest PlayStation Plus announcement was certainly a treat. In case you missed it, 23 games have been added to the service across the Extra and Premium tiers. Standout titles include Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition.

These titles join the previously announced Essential tier line-up. This month, that includes Hot Wheels Unleashed, Injustice 2, and Superhot and it’s a line-up that’s left fans impressed - particularly the unexpectedly fun Hot Wheels Unleashed. There is some bad news though. Some of the latest Extra and Premium tier games are actually unplayable on PlayStation 5 consoles. Awkward.

Speaking of PlayStation, we’re less than a month away from the release of God Of War Ragnarök. Take a look at Kratos and Atreus in action below.

It was announced yesterday that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate would all be joining PS Plus. The games were listed as being available on PlayStation 4 but this didn’t ring any alarm bells. Usually, this simply signifies that the game doesn’t have a new-gen version but is playable via backwards compatibility.

That’s not the case here. Sony have since confirmed in a blog post (Thanks Push Square), that these three titles are not backwards compatible as is often the case and will not be available to PlayStation 5 users. It’s certainly unusual news, but it’s not wholly surprising. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has struggled with bugs for quite some time.

As Push Square points out, Ubisoft posted earlier this year to explain that they were working on a patch for PS5 users but alas, nothing has come to fruition and the message has since been deleted. It’s a shame because it’s a great game.
