PlayStation have announced via email today that the PlayStation Plus Collection will stop being available after 9th May 2023. Any titles currently in the Collection can still be claimed by PlayStation Plus users until then, and will continue to be accessible after the sunset date, so long as you still have an active subscription.

The PlayStation Plus Collection originally launched with the console giant’s latest home device, the PS5, in late 2020. With the recent pandemic causing numerous tech shortages and game development delays, the PS Plus Collection served as a way for new PS5 owners to get some early value by experiencing some of the best titles of the previous console generation. It included a bevy of popular, critically acclaimed games. See the full list below:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Bloodborne
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (Zombie Chronicles Edition)
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy 15
  • God of War (2018)
  • Infamous Second Son
  • Monster Hunter World
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  • Until Dawn

Persona 5 was originally part of the Collection at launch, but has since been removed.

The list is considerably stacked, with multiple hit games, numerous PlayStation first party titles, and Detroit: Become Human for… some reason. God of War even has a PS5 patch available, allowing you to play the 2018 Game of the Year at a smooth 60fps framerate. There are hours of gameplay within the games on this list, so it’s worth claiming if you’ve got some room on your backlog.

If you’re unsure where to start, GameLuster will have a ranking of all 19 games in the PS Plus Collection out in the coming days. At the very least, you can begin by claiming the games. Just scroll to the PS Plus tile on the leftmost side of the PS5 homescreen, then scroll fairly far down to see the Collection. You can claim the games you’re interested in from there.

Are you upset to see the PlayStation Plus Collection be phased out? Do you use the game libraries in the upper tiers of Plus, and find them a good substitute? Let us know in the comments below! For more on all things PlayStation, stay tuned right here at GameLuster.
