PlayStation has revealed new details about the upcoming update of its PlayStation Plus subscription – more specifically, the games it will have. In addition to all the first-party PlayStation titles, the Spartacus update has also added the Ubisoft+ service and its games.
One of the changes in the new PS Plus Extra and Premium plans is an expansion of the available games catalog. The collection of PS5/PS4 games available now includes first-party games such as Returnal (along with all other Housemarque titles), Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Until Dawn, all Uncharted games, and the Spider-Man games. titles. The third-party titles include Red Dead Redemption 2, Control, Batman: Arkham Knight, Mortal Kombat 11, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Sony has also revealed some of the classic PlayStation titles that will be coming to its Premium subscription. They include Ape Escape 1 and 2, Siphon Filter, the Jak & Daxter remasters, the Infamous titles, and several others. The PS3 games are available via streaming on PS5, PS4 and PC. It also added that certain PS1 and PSP games “will have a new UI with menus that allow you to save your game at any time or even rewind if you want a new version.”
Ubisoft has added several proprietary titles to PlayStation Plus under the title Ubisoft+ Classics. It offers these games to PS Plus Extra, Premium and Deluxe subscribers. Ubisoft+ Classics will contain 27 titles at launch and will have 50 by the end of 2022. The launch lineup includes Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, South Park: The Stick of Truth and The Crew.
Chris Early, Ubisoft’s SVP of Partnerships, clarified that the Classics collection is a separate offering from Ubisoft+, which will eventually be available to PlayStation users: “This is just the beginning as we will eventually make Ubisoft+ available to PlayStation owners. as we continue to build our vision and give players more options to access their favorite games wherever they are.”
Ubisoft+ was rumored to be coming to Xbox Game Pass, but it looks like it will make its console debut on PS Plus (makes sense given the similarity of the name). The company said in a blog post that the service will eventually be available on both PlayStation and Xbox.
