The PlayStation Plus Collection Disappears In May
Sony is shutting down the PlayStation Plus Collection, the bundle of PS4 essentials that PS Plus subscribers on PS5 could download and play at no additional cost.
In an email sent to subscribers, the message states that on May 9, the collection of 19 games will disappear and that subscribers have until that date to add its games to their game library. Sony hasn’t explained why it’s closing the collection, but it also says other PS Plus benefits, such as monthly games, won’t be affected. Here is the full message below:
From May 9, the PlayStation Plus Collection will no longer be available as a PlayStation Plus benefit. You can add any title from the PlayStation Plus Collection to your games library before May 9 and play anytime in the future with an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
The PlayStation Plus games catalog, monthly games and other existing benefits will not be affected by this change.
Thank you for your continued support of PlayStation Plus.
The PlayStation Plus Collection launched alongside the PS5 as an added bonus for those owners. In a way, it served as a mini version of Xbox’s Game Pass, although it only features last-gen titles. The collection has remained largely the same since 2020, with a few titles joining the list and only Persona 5 being dropped from the original lineup last year. The PS Plus collection currently consists of the following titles:
Batman: Arkham Knight Battlefield 1 Bloodborne Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombie Chronicles Edition Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy Days Gone Detroit: Become Human Fallout 4 Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition God of War (2018) Infamous: Second Son The Last Guardian The Last of Us Remastered Monster Hunter: World Mortal Kombat X Ratchet & Clank (2016) Resident Evil VII: Biohazard Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Until Dawn
Last year, Sony added two premium PlayStation Plus subscription tiers that give those members access to a much larger (and more regularly updated) library of games across multiple generations of PlayStation. Premium members can access most, but not all, of these titles now, so maybe Sony wants to entice standard PS Plus subscribers to upgrade. Either way, be sure to catch these games now if you haven’t already before the May 9 deadline surprises you.
