The PS5’s PlayStation Plus Collection is closing next month

As a little bonus for buying a PlayStation 5, all those subscribed to PS Plus have been able to get their hands on a dozen or so PS4 classics for free. This promotion has persisted for years following the launch of the PS5, but with the console well into its 3rd year on the market, Sony is set to end this promotion very soon – tomorrow in fact.

Making the announcement via an email (and shared by GameInformer), Sony said: “From May 9 the PlayStation Plus Collection will no longer be available as a PlayStation Plus benefit. You can add any of the titles from the PlayStation Plus Collection to your Game Library before May 9 and play at any time in the future with an active PlayStation Plus membership. PlayStation Plus Game Catalog, Monthly Games and other existing benefits will not be affected by this change. Thank you for your continued support of PlayStation Plus.”

The full list of titles available as part of the collection can be seen below and while a majority of them run as they did on PS4|Pro, a select few titles are enhanced on PS5 through backwards compatibility, and so are certainly worth playing:

  • 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

As long as you add the games to your library they will remain there indefinitely and will be playable as long as you have an active PS Plus subscription. While it is a shame to see the promotion ending, it served well as an introduction to the world of PlayStation. Make sure to redeem the full PS Plus Collection before they become unavailable.
