PlayStation Plus library — what South Africa will get for R179 per month

Sony has revealed a long line-up of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games available on its new PlayStation Plus subscriptions.

While the basic PlayStation Plus Essential will function much like the current PlayStation Plus membership, the Extra and Deluxe subscriptions will give players access to an extensive library of titles across multiple generations of its PlayStation consoles.

The service is set to take on Microsoft’s highly-popular Game Pass offering, which provides a catalogue of 460 games to Xbox players.

Sony has named 56 PS4 and PS5 titles that will be on offer from its own and third-party studios, in addition to 29 Classic Catalogue games that will be available on the top-end Deluxe plan.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are among the big names announced.

There will also be a few “time-limited game trials” on the Deluxe tier, allowing users to try out some of the latest titles for two hours.

This includes more recent games like Horizon Forbidden West, Cyberpunk 2077, and WWE 2K22.

South Africans will not be able to play the PlayStation 3 titles included in the Deluxe subscription, as these require Sony’s game streaming service PlayStation Now to work.

PlayStation Now is only available in a handful of markets that don’t include South Africa.

Sony said it would refresh the catalogue in the middle of each month with new games across the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium/Deluxe plans.

“The number of games refreshed will vary per month,” the company stated.

Below is the list of games confirmed to be coming to PlayStation Plus so far.

The current list of titles presents only a fraction of more than 700 titles Sony has promised.
