Sony details dozens of games coming to revamped PlayStation Plus catalogue

Assassin's Creed Valhalla! Control! Red Dead 2! Knack!

Sony's revamped PlayStation Plus service is now just a week away from its initial launch, and we now have some idea which games will be included as part of its current and classic game catalogues.

As a reminder, the new PlayStation Plus tiers will arrive here in the UK on 23rd June, as with elsewhere in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. This follows the service's launch in the Americas on 13th June, Japan on 2nd June, and Asia next week on 24th May.

Included with both the new Extra and Premium tiers, the PS4 and PS5 Game Catalogue will include numerous recent PlayStation exclusives, including Returnal, Death Stranding: Director's Cut, Demon's Souls, Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut and Horizon Zero Dawn.

Big names from beyond Sony's own studios will include Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Control: Ultimate Edition, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (seemingly at the same time it's available via Xbox Game Pass), and Red Dead Redemption 2. Indies include Celeste, Dead Cells, Hollow Knight and Outer Wilds.

Moving up to the Premium tier's additional catalogue of classic games, its here you'll find "improved frame rates and higher-quality resolution". Some "select" original PlayStation and PSP games will also include the ability to save at any time or rewind.

Finally, if you own the digital version of these games already, you won't need to buy them again or subscribe to play them. However, only some will be available to purchase individually.

Included in the list of classic games from PlayStation studios are Ape Escape, Hot Shots Golf, Jumping Flash! and Syphon Filter from the original PlayStation, as well as Worms Armageddon and Mr. Driller from third-party studios.

Remastered versions of Ape Escape 2 and Naughty Dog's Jak series from the PS4 era will also be included, as will BioShock Remastered, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning and the Lego Harry Potter Collection.

Premium owners also get a selection of PS3 games via game streaming, to play on PS4, PS5 and PC. These include Demon's Souls, Ico, Infamous, MotorStorm Apocalypse, Eurogamer favourite Tokyo Jungle, plus Ratchet & Clank games Quest for Booty, A Crack in Time and Into the Nexus.

Third-party streaming games will include Enslaved, Asura's Wrath and Red Dead Redemption's zombie spin-off Undead Nightmare.

Lastly, Premium owners get a selection of two-hour time-limited game trials for recent releases. These will notably include Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Horizon Forbidden West, plus Cyberpunk 2077 and Tiny Tina's Wonderland.

Last week, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan said Sony's AAA game quality would "deteoriate" if they were included as part of Plus when they launched.

These are just a selection of the games we're expecting on the service - which you can see below, or on our dedicated PlayStation Plus Premium games list page - which will also be kept refreshed each month. The first Tuesday of each month will see new games join all tiers of the new PlayStation Plus - the same as now - while a mid-month update will bring new games to the catalogues of both Plus Extra and Premium tiers.

Today's details follow some confusion and criticism from existing PlayStation Plus owners who have tried and failed to stack Plus memberships ahead of time. Indeed, the ability to extend current Plus memberships was blocked altogether by Sony until the new revamped tiers launch.

Sony notes that availability of all these games will vary over time, and by region. Here's all the games announced so far:
