‘Disappointing’ PS Plus revamp adds pricey top titles to free game lineup

Subscribers to the new Playstation Plus premium tiers will get to download dozens more games for free, as Sony looks to take on Xbox Game Pass with a revamped monthly service.

Pricey triple-A titles like Bloodborne, Demon's Souls, Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding and Assassin's Creed Valhalla are just some of the games being added to the PS Plus Deluxe and Premium services.

Subscribers who pay a little bit extra every month will also have access to some classic original Playstation games, including Ape Escape, Ratchet & Clank, Jak and Daxter, and CastleVania. View the full list of games here.

The new Deluxe and Premium tiers mark a major step forward for PS Plus, which previously only gave subscribers access to two or three new titles per month.

PS Plus Deluxe and Premium will launch in Europe on June 23, with other regions in the world getting their hands on new titles even earlier.

When the new subscription service was first announced in March, it promised a "splashy new lineup of hit games".

However, many gamers appear disappointed by the new lineup which features games that were already available on Sony's separate PS Now service.

One gamer, Laurence Taylor, wrote on Twitter: "The Playstation Plus lineup is… pretty disappointing. A handful of games people have either already played or just don't want to play."

Ps Plus Extra will cost £10.99 per month, while PS Plus Premium will be £13.49. By way of contrast, the classic basic PS Plus subscription will be £6.99 per month.

By way of contrast, Microsoft's immensely popular Xbox Game Pass costs £10.99 per month and gives gamers access to around 100 games, with many of these being brand new AAA titles.
