Sony gives us a glimpse at the new PlayStation Plus games lineup
The Extra and Premium tiers of the service get you access to many PS4 and PS5 games.
Sony’s new PlayStation Plus tiered subscription service is set to come out for gamers gradually over the next month. To help build some hype surrounding the new service, the company has shared some of the free games it will offer to the Extra and Premium tiers.
Sony released a blog post earlier today sharing some new details about its upcoming service. Included in the post is a list of more than 50 of the free PS4 and PS5 games that users will gain access to with the PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium tier.
The list includes games from both Sony’s own PlayStation Studios as well as popular third-party games. Some of the games include popular titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and many more.

The list of 50 plus games in the blog post is still a fraction of what’s to come, as the company says it will have up to 400 PS4 and PS5 games available to download and play for the Extra and Premium tiers.
The new PlayStation Plus subscription service is right around the corner, with its initial launch in Asia on May 24. Users around the world will get access to the new feature in the weeks following.
This service has the potential to shake up the subscription gaming world in a major way. Sony has taken a page out of the Xbox Game Pass game plan with this all-in-one subscription service. And it looks like the newcomer could give Game Pass a run for its money.
