Nearly 60 games leave PS Now before the new PS Plus replaces it | VGC

Nearly 60 games will leave the PlayStation Now service next month before it becomes part of Sony’s renewed PlayStation Plus system.

PS Now, a subscription service that gives players access to a variety of PS2, PS3 and PS4 games, is closing down this summer and will be replaced by the new level-divided PS Plus system, which incorporates the features of PS Now in its higher floors.

However, Reddit user Cobra_Bite has noticed that a number of games currently available on PlayStation Now either currently show expiration dates in May or occasionally show them on and off.

This means that unless they are renewed, at least 56 games currently on PS Now will not be available on the renewed PS Plus.

The full list can be found on Reddit, but notable titles include a large number of Sega games as well as some Metal Gear Solid titles.

Highlights from the list include:

  • Akibas beat and Akibas turn
  • Castlevania: Lord of Shadow
  • Catherine
  • Metal Gear Rising
  • Metal Gear Solid 4
  • Metal Gear Solid V and Ground Zeroes
  • Silent Hill HD Collection
  • Sonic Forces
  • Sonic generations
  • Sonic Mania
  • Sonic Unleashed
  • Team Sonic Racing
  • Valkyria Chronicles Remastered
  • Virtua Fighter V
  • Yakuza 4 and 5

Should these games not be present on the new PS Plus scheme, Sonic fans may be most affected. There are a total of 11 Sonic games on the list, including all major series releases since 2008’s Sonic Unleashed.

The recently announced PlayStation Plus update will see three new levels introduced this summer.

PS Plus Essentials offers the same benefits as the current PS Plus service with monthly free games, discounts and online multiplayer. It will also cost the same: $ 9.99 / € 8.99 / £ 6.99 per month, $ 24.99 / € 24.99 / £ 19.99 for three months or $ 59.99 / € 59.99 / £ 49.99 per year.

In the meantime PS Plus Extra will include the same benefits, but with access to a library of 400 downloadable PS4 and PS5 games. These games will include Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, Returnal and more.

Finally, PS Plus Premium includes the above benefits, but adds up to 340 additional games, including PS3 titles available via cloud streaming, and a catalog of classic games available in both streaming and download options from the original PlayStation, PS2 and PSP generations.
