The first batch of PS Plus Premium games has been revealed

Sony has revealed some of the games that will be available on its upcoming revamped PS Plus subscription platform. And we’ve got a mix of  triple-A releases and retro classics that will be making their way to the platform.

PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium members will get access to a slate of first-party PS5 and PS4 titles, according to the blog post. The list includes big names like Uncharted 4, 2018’s God of War, Ghost of Tsushima, and the Demon’s Souls remake. Sony also confirmed some of the third-party titles that will be available will include Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Hollow Knight, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

On the retro side, there[‘s some PS1 and PSP games that will be available to PS Plus Premium subscribers. They include hits like Ape Escape, Tekken 2, and Worms Armageddon.

A selection of these classic games have been upgraded with higher framerates, higher-quality resolutions, and, in some cases, they’ve had new user interfaces added that allow for additional save systems.

The good news is that if you’ve already bought the digital version of one of these retro games from the PlayStation store, you’ll get access to the new-and-improved version at no extra cost. And you can buy qualifying titles individually too.

Several retro games included in the service will actually be remastered versions that were originally released on past console generations. Jak 2, for example, will be available to play, but only the PS4 remaster of the game, not its original PS2 version. Other remasters include Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, and Bioshock Remastered.

To top it off, Sony confirmed several PS3 games that will be available to stream for PS Plus Premium subscribers. They include a couple of standout first-party releases, such as Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, Infamous 2, and Resistance 3, as well as third-party titles like Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.

Check out the full list of games that Sony has revealed for PS Plus at the bottom of the story. Remember, this isn’t the full list of titles that will hit PS Plus when it launches next month. PS Plus Premium will include over 700 games in total, so there’s plenty more surprises in store.

Ubisoft partners with Sony PS Plus

Alongside the PS Plus catalog reveal, Ubisoft announced that it’s partnered with Sony to integrate its own subscription service, Ubisoft+, into the revamped PS Plus platform.

Ubisoft+ grants subscribers unlimited access to a range of Ubisoft-published games, including this Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 4, and For Honor. While it’s currently only available on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna, it will come bundled with the PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium tiers.

When the new PlayStation subscription service launches, the Ubisoft+ catalog will include 27 games. Ubisoft says that number will grow to 50 by the end of 2022.
