PS Plus Premium lineup includes Final Fantasy, VR games, and more

Today, PlayStation shared the full list of PS1, PS2, PS4, and PS5 games that are part of the new games library for PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra subscribers as the service started to roll out in Asia.

PlayStation Plus’ relaunch in North America is just around the corner, but Sony fans in Asia are getting a first look at these new models for Sony’s subscription service. On top of allowing members to play online and get two free games a month, PS Plus Premium and Extra contain a library of games similar to Xbox Game Pass. Today, we got a look at what that list actually looks like.

Introducing the all-new PlayStation Plus | PS5 & PS4 Games

The catalog of modern games coming to the service is extensive, containing over 70 modern titles. A few of the notable titles not previously revealed include multiple classic and modern Final Fantasy games, Balan Wonderworld (for some reason), Detroit: Become HumanFriday the 13th: The GameOvercooked 2, Trials Fusion and Rising, and more. There is also more love for indie and VR titles present in the full list.

Members of the Premium PlayStation Plus tier can also access a library of PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PSP titles. These games — which include classics like Tekken 2Ape Escape, and Ashura’s Wrath — will also be available for purchase with prices already appearing on Asian PlayStation Stores.

There are many wondering how their current PlayStation Plus subscriptions will convert over to the new service. Thankfully, we have a primer explaining just that. Not only are Plus subscriptions of varying lengths converting into different programs, but PlayStation Now memberships are also converting over as the service goes defunct to make room.

PlayStations Plus Premium and Extra go live in North America on June 13, 2022. For those who want a rundown on all the tiers of the new model, Digital Trends also has a breakdown of everything you need to know.

With a new Monster Hunter game on the horizon, have you been wondering about where to start with this long-running Capcom series? This month's PlayStation Plus catalog can help with that.

It can be tough to figure out where to start with Monster Hunter, not only because there are multiple spinoff titles but also because there are a lot of options. The upcoming Monster Hunter Wilds is set to release in 2025, with Capcom promising its biggest-ever maps, new dual-wielding combat capabilities, and a lot more. If you can't wait until then, there's always Monster Hunter Rise, which is the headliner of Sony's updated PlayStation Plus catalog releasing on June 18.

June 2024 is shaping up to be a pretty great month for PlayStation players. Not only are we coming off an entertaining State of Play showcase, but a new Days of Play initiative surrounding all the video game showcases this month is bringing a lot of new PS Plus additions with it. Many of those games hit PS Plus this week, and three in particular stand out to us.

For owners of Sony's oft-neglected PlayStation VR2, the first game is one of its rare exclusives that take full advantage of the headset's eye-tracking by seeing how often players blink. The next is a new PS Plus Essential game that's a revival of Sega's classic beat-'em-up series for the modern gaming era. Finally, the last title is an atmospheric and eerie fishing game that should entice fans of Lovecraftian horror.
