PS Plus adds lots of great RPGs in September, but loses a former PS5 exclusive

Sony has provided its rundown of which games PlayStation Plus Premium and PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers can expect to be added on September 19 following the service’s massive price hike. The lineup is full of great RPGs from Japanese developers, like NieR Replicant and several Star Ocean games. The service will also lose Deathloop, which used to be a PS5 exclusive, on the same day.

PS Plus Premium and Extra will receive 20 new games this month, and five of them are games from Square Enix’s Star Ocean series. This makes it a great service to subscribe to if you want to prepare for November’s Star Ocean: The Second Story R. In general, it’s a great month for fans of RPGs, as games like NieR Replicant, Dragon’s Crown Pro, and Odin Sphere Leifthrasir are also coming to the subscription service. Here’s the full list of games coming to PS Plus on September 19:

  • 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
  • Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
  • NieR Replicant
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
  • Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2
  • Unpacking
  • Planet Coaster: Console Edition
  • This War of Mine: Final Cut
  • Cloud Punk
  • Contra: Rogue Corps
  • Tails Noir
  • Call of the Sea
  • West of Dead
  • PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls
  • Dragon’s Crown Pro
  • Star Ocean: First Departure R
  • Star Ocean: Till the End of Time
  • Star Ocean: The Last Hope – 4K and Full HD Remaster
  • Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness
  • Star Ocean: The Divine Force

While PS Plus gains a lot of games each month, it also loses some. A pretty notable PS5 game is going away this month: Deathloop. While the game has since come to Xbox Series X/S, Deathloop was formerly a PS5 exclusive game despite the fact that it came out after Microsoft had acquired publisher ZeniMax Media. This removal now makes Xbox Game Pass the only subscription service where you can play Deathloop. Here’s the full list of titles leaving PS Plus Premium and Extra this month:

  • Deathloop
  • Death end re;Quest 2
  • Chicory: A Colorful Tale
  • Nidhogg II
  • Through the Darkest of Times
  • Umbrella Corps
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
  • WatchDogs
  • WatchDogs 2

All of these games will come to or leave PS Plus Premium and Extra across PS4 and PS5 on September 19.

3 realistic improvements we want to see with PS5 Pro games
A red and blue PS5 stands on a table with matching controllers.

As we reach the middle of this current console generation, people are wondering when improved “Pro” versions of consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will arrive. PS5 fans had their curiosity rewarded this week when Moore’s Law is Dead and Insider Gaming leaked the specs of what has become colloquially known as the PS5 Pro and is reportedly referred to as “Trinity” internally at Sony.

The leaked documents indicate that the PS5 Pro will have a similar CPU to the base model that can be modified to run at a slightly higher clock speed, as well as 67 teraflops of 16 bit floating-point calculations, a GPU with 60 AMD compute units and faster memory bandwidth, and more. These are improvements over the launch PS5 model, but it isn’t a console generation-like leap in terms of hardware power.

YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead claims to have obtained a technical overview document for the PS5 Pro, code-named Trinity, and Insider Gaming's Tom Henderson has confirmed the leaked specifications' accuracy, which suggests a holiday 2024 release window for the console.

PlayStation acknowledges Jak and Daxter fans with March’s PS Plus game lineup

Sony today unveiled the March 2024 lineup of new games for the PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra catalog. Jak and Daxter fans, whom PlayStation and Naughty Dog rarely acknowledge, got a win today as the PSP version of Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier is getting rereleased for the first time via PlayStation Plus Premium on March 19.

Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier was released for PSP and PS2 in 2009 and is the closest thing we've ever gotten to a Jak 4. Although it's not as well-polished as Naughty Dog's trilogy, it's an important piece of Jak and Daxter history that wasn't easily playable outside of original hardware until this month. Hopefully, this sets the stage for PS Plus Premium rerelease of Daxter will eventually happen, although that isn't confirmed at this time.
