Here is February 2023's PlayStation Plus Essential line-up

UPDATE: Sony quietly announces end of PlayStation Plus Collection.

UPDATE 1/2/23: Sony has now confirmed the previously-leaked PlayStation Plus Essential games line-up for February, which as expected includes OlliOlli World, Evil Dead: The Game and Mafia: Definitive Edition, plus Destiny 2 expansion Beyond Light.

Additionally, in a brief note at the end of today's announcement post, Sony quietly confirmed it was calling time on the 20 games provided as part of the PlayStation Plus Collection since 2020. You have until 9th May to claim the lot, and can continue playing them beyond that date.

This list of games includes PlayStation exclusives such as Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human and The Last of Us Remastered, as well as third-party hits such as Batman: Arkham Knight and Monster Hunter World. For the full list, here's Eurogamer's PlayStation Plus Collection guide.

ORIGINAL STORY 30/1/23: Another day, another PlayStation Plus leak, and it looks like OlliOlli World, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Evil Dead: The Game, and Mafia: Definitive Edition are on the way for PS Essential subscribers.

All four are playable on PS4 consoles, whilst OlliOlli World, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, and Evil Dead: The Game are optimised for PS5, too.

As is usually the case, the news comes via our old pal Billbil-kun who has been reliably leaking the PS Plus freebie line-up via a French forum for months now.

They state that the games will be available from 7th February to 6th March inclusively, and warn that Mafia DE may be substituted in some territories. As yet, however, we don't know where or with what.

There's still time to grab January 2023's line-up, by the way. It includes Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order - which is set to get a sequel, Jedi Survivor, in March, of course - whilst Bethesda's online-focused RPG Fallout 76 joins PS Plus Essential (it's already in the PlayStation Plus Extra tier).

Finally, Axiom Verge 2, the sequel to developer Thomas Happ's acclaimed retro-styled Metroid-a-like, also hit the PS Plus Essential line-up in January.
