PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium Adding 14 Titles To Its Game Catalog Next Week

by Rainier on June 12, 2024 @ 10:05 a.m. PDT

With the all-new PlayStation Plus, players can discover and engage with more content than ever before and deepen their connection with the PlayStation community through shared experiences.

Since launching PlayStation Plus in 2010, SIE has been at the forefront of innovation with game subscription services. With the new PlayStation Plus service, PlayStation Now has transitioned into the new PlayStation Plus offering and will no longer be available as a standalone service. PlayStation Now customers will migrate over to PlayStation Plus Premium with no increase to their current subscription fees at launch.

The new Extra and Premium tiers represent a major evolution for PlayStation Plus. With these tiers, our key focus is to ensure that the hundreds of games we offer will include the best quality content that sets us apart.

The new PlayStation Plus game catalog includes titles from dozens of talented studios across the globe, including PlayStation Studios developers such as Insomniac Games, Naughty Dog, and Sucker Punch, and third-party partners such as Rockstar Games, Square Enix, WB Games and more. The hundreds of games available in the PlayStation Plus games catalog will continue to refresh and evolve over time, so there is always something new for gamers to play.

Some of the classic games coming to PlayStation Plus will show improved frame rates and higher quality resolution than its original launch versions. Additionally, select games from the original PlayStation and PSP generation will include a new user experience with menus that allow players to save their game at any time, or even rewind the game to replay a specific section.

Take down gigantic monsters, bring your smarts to the pitch or the medieval world, explore a surrealistic post-human world, and much more with June’s PlayStation Plus Game Catalog lineup! Monster Hunter Rise, Football Manager 2024, Crusader Kings III, After Us, and many more games will be available from June 18. We’re also announcing new classic and PS VR2 game offerings coming to PlayStation Plus Premium.

And as a reminder, we announced a range of bonus PlayStation Plus titles earlier this month as part of our Days of Play celebrations. These are already available, and you can find more here

Let’s take a closer look at each of the new game announcements.
