PlayStation Plus Collection: Price, Release Date, Game List, and News

Everything to know about this bonus for PS Plus members with a PS5

PlayStation Plus Collection is a feature for the PS5 that lets you download a handful of popular PS4 games on the new console. Two games every month are already included as part of PS Plus; this collection is like an expansion pack for PS5 owners.

PS Plus Collection Release Date

November 12, 2020 was when the PS5 launched. The PS Plus Collection was available that day, too.

That release date applied to anyone in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. You had to wait until November 19 in these areas: Europe, the Middle East, South America, Asia, and South Africa (excluding China and Saudi Arabia where this isn’t available).

PlayStation Plus Collection Game List

Sony includes these games in the PS Plus Collection:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Bloodborne
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles Edition
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition
  • God of War
  • Infamous Second Son
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  • Until Dawn

The way it works is simple: download the games and start playing! However, according to the company, Plus Collection titles vary by country.

Are More Games Coming to the Plus Collection?

It's unclear if more games will be added in the future or if any of the existing titles will be taken away, but we'll keep this list updated if and when changes occur.

As for whether or not new PS5 games will be included in the Plus Collection as a subscription service, Sony CEO Jim Ryan has this to say:

We are not going to go down the road of putting new releases titles into a subscription model. These games cost many millions of dollars, well over $100 million, to develop. We just don't see that as sustainable.

Sony may yet change its mind on this, however. In June 2022, it folded the PlayStation Now catalog into two additional tiers of PlayStation Plus (Extra and Deluxe). These options include the Game Catalog, which provide access to hundreds of PS4 and PS5 games. Every available title has been out for a while, so the company may stick to letting new releases have some time on their own before they fold them into this service.

What Do the PS Plus Collection Games Cost?

The collection of games doesn't cost anything extra beyond a PS Plus subscription. This means it doesn't matter if you're paying for the 12-month, 3-month, or 1-month subscription or what tier you use—Essential, Extra, or Premium—you have access to all of those PS4 games on your PS5.
