game news PlayStation Plus: A really attractive new PS4 and PS5 catalog?

After formalizing the new PlayStation Plus in March, Sony is now bringing back the cover with the first games available in the all-new show! It is enough to directly compare the old catalog with the one that will arrive soon. So what does the Japanese company’s subscription service have in store for us? Here is our article to understand it all.

We’ve been talking about it for months, but the new PlayStation Plus – aka “Project Spartacus” – is only starting to take shape. Revised and patched presentation, scheduled for June 23, 2022 in Europe, is preparing to replace the tandem PS Plus | PS Now with a three-tier subscription service. The first, “PS Plus Essential,” will grant access to the same benefits as the current PS Plus. While the second (“extra”) will also benefit fromPS4 Games Catalog | PS5and more, if you like the “premium” third stage, which adds old titles, remote programming thanks to live broadcasts, and demos to test the latest Triple-As.

In addition to offering a more robust and clear service than in the past, Sony’s goal with the new PS Plus is to respond to Game Pass. Microsoft’s offering continues to grow by welcoming, as of the day of their release, exclusive movies on Xbox and PC. from his side, PlayStation has always been very hesitant In the subject. Jim Ryan, head of the Japanese company’s video game division, says the cost of developing these giant projects (“More than $100 million”) does not correspond to such a strategy, emphasizing the “care” and “respect” that should be applied to them. However, in the PS Plus Extra and Premium catalog we note Sony Triple-As that are worth a look.

keep promises

Because yes, as promised last March, Sony has Try to combine exclusives More or less recent in the Extra and Premium offers for PS Plus. on PlayStation Blog, we can thus observe the existence of Returnal (2021 | PS5); Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut (2021 | PS4 & PS5); Death Stranding Director’s Cut (2021 | PS4 & PS5) or even Demon’s Souls (2020 | PS5) and Spider Man Miles Morales (2020 | PS4 & PS5). On the other hand, for this year’s movies, access to PS Plus Premium’s two-hour demos will be limited. This is the case, for example, for the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves and Horizon Forbidden West collection, which were released in 2022.

Interestingly enough, at this time there is no mention of PS5 star Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart console exclusives Ghostwire Tokyo and Deathloop. But this is normal. The list will be updated for the first time when the offer is finally released. Above all, in the long run, this new PlayStation Plus will have new features ‘every month’. So there will be games already offered in the same time period, as they are currently, as well as the catalog of PS Plus Extra and Premium that will expand over time. When we touched on the topic with Jim Ryan, the guy was talking about “400 PS4 and PS5 apps at launch.” At the time of this writing, the PS blog list has only about sixty, PSP, PS1, PS2, PS3 titles added for Extra and Premium offerings. In short, there is still room.

strong kidneys

If PlayStation intends to enrich the new PS Plus with games of this caliber, then the show is certainly worth the detour. Especially since this is not 100% Sony. The company can also Rely on partners like Ubisoft which will introduce about thirty applications through the additional levels | Bonus, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Not to mention other cartridges like the excellent Red Dead Redemption II, which has already passed through the pillars of PlayStation Now, as well as award-winning programs like Outer Wilds and Celeste. In recent months, Sony has demonstrated a desire to improve its catalog of services, adding for example Shadow Warrior 3 as soon as it is released to the streaming service. It looks like PlayStation is ready to continue down this path. Ubisoft is already planning to add 20 more games by the end of the year.
