PlayStation Plus Launch Day Games Revealed: Red Dead Redemption 2, Demon’s Souls And More

Sony is making a more spirited run at subscription gaming with a retooled PlayStation Plus service that is now just weeks away from launching with new tiers, and the big question on everyone’s minds is the the launch games lineup will look like. Well, now we know. In a blog post today, Sony shared what PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 games will be available on Day 1.

First things first—PlayStation Plus is set to debut in just over four weeks from now, on June 13, 2022, in the United States and Europe. As we wrote about previously, there will be three tiers. The least expensive is PlayStation Plus Essential, which includes two monthly downloadable games, exclusive discounts, cloud storage for saved games, and online multiplayer access for $9.99 per month, $24.99 quarterly, or $59.99 for an annual sub.

The PlayStation Plus Extra ups the ante by adding a catalog of up to 400 PS5 and PS4 games, all of which will be available to members for as long as they maintain an active subscription. It runs $14.99 per month, $39.99 per quarter, or $99.99 for a full year.

At the top of the heap is PlayStation Plus Premium. It includes the same benefits as the previous two tiers, and adds up to 340 additional games, bringing the tally to 740 games. It also includes PlayStation 3 titles that can be streamed to PS5, PS4, and PC, as well as a catalog of retro PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PSP games that can be streamed to the same platforms or downloaded. This one runs $17.99 per month, $49.99 per quarter, or $119.99 for a full year.
