PlayStation Plus on PS5 will offer a collection of popular PS4 games as a new benefit

Sony finally revealed the PlayStation 5 consoles' price point and release date during its latest showcase. To further entice its fans, the company also had a new announcement regarding its PlayStation Plus subscription service, which is getting an upgrade on the next-generation consoles.

Arriving with the name PlayStation Plus Collection, this new benefit to the Plus subscription offers "a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation" for the PlayStation 5 at launch. The included games feature high profile PlayStation 4 exclusives like God of War, Bloodborne, and The Last of Us Remastered, as well as third party titles such as Battlefield 1 and Resident Evil 7.

Based on the announcement trailer, here are the 18 games that are included:

  • Bloodborne
  • Battlefield 1
  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • God of War
  • inFamous: Second Son
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • The Last Guardian
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 5
  • Resident Evil 7
  • Ratchet & Clank
  • Until Dawn
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

The existing benefits like access to online play and the monthly free games will continue as well.

With this move, those jumping into a PlayStation 5 without a backlog of PlayStation 4 games now have the opportunity to experience some of this generation's greatest hits without needing to purchase them individually, similar to what Microsoft offers with Game Pass for next-gen Xbox console buyers.

However, it’s unclear if this is a temporary upgrade to PlayStation Plus, considering PlayStation Now still exists, and Sony hasn't said whether the collection will expand with more games in the future.
