PS Plus is getting PS5 cloud streaming and a big library update

Sony has revealed the next batch of games coming to PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra in June, and the highlight is Far Cry 6. Sony also teased that it is starting to test cloud streaming for PS5 games, with plans to add that feature to PlayStation Plus in the future. A free game trial for WWE 2K23 and free avatars and wallpapers for PS Plus members will also become available next week. 

When it comes to new titles, Sony revealed a nice batch of older AAA titles and more recent hit indies for June. On the AAA side of things, Far Cry 6 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided are very enjoyable, while, indie games like Rogue Legacy 2 and Inscryption are also worth checking out. A PlayStation UK Facebook post confirms that these are titles coming to the service on June 20.

While that’s a good batch of new titles coming to the service, the following games will be leaving PlayStation Plus Extra on June 20.

  • Descenders
  • Party Hard
  • 9 Monkeys of Shaolin
  • Redeemer: Enhanced Edition
  • Ash of Gods: Redemption

  • Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf Console Edition
  • Gods Will Fall
  • Agents of Mayhem
  • Red Faction

Today’s PlayStation Blog announcement also teased a major feature coming to PlayStation Plus Premium in the future. “We’re currently testing cloud streaming for supported PS5 games – this includes PS5 titles from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog and Game Trials, as well as supported digital PS5 titles that players own,” Nick Maguire, SIE Global Services vice president, said. “When this feature launches, cloud game streaming for supported PS5 titles will be available for  use directly on your PS5 console.”

Currently, cloud gaming on PS5 is the primary way to play PS3 titles on the system. While this expansion of cloud gaming on PlayStation does not have a launch window, we’d expect it to become available before the launch of the Project Q cloud gaming handheld teased during the last PlayStation Showcase.

PlayStation will kick off the summer of digital video game reveal streams this week with a State of Play broadcast. The stream will take place at 3 p.m. PT on Thursday, May 30.

State of Play is one of Sony's primary livestream presentation formats. It tends to be slightly shorter than the company's flagship stream, the PlayStation Showcase. This State of Play is a significant one, though, as Sony's slate of first-party games for 2024 is entirely unknown at this stage. This stream should shed some light on what's coming later this year.

Sony has removed an interview with Naughty Dog's co-president Neil Druckmann after the Uncharted and The Last of Us creator noted that some of his quotes were inaccurate and misrepresented in the article.

Last week, an interview Neil Druckmann was posted and was meant to offer insight into the famous game developer's philosophies and expectations for the future of Naughty Dog. The interview caught the general audience's attention because Druckmann made bold claims about how AI could be used in game development and how he thought Naughty Dog's next game was "redefining mainstream perceptions of gaming."
