At PS5 console launch, we are pleased to add new benefits to your PlayStation Plus membership at no additional cost. This includes the recently announced PlayStation Plus Collection.

PlayStation Plus Collection

PlayStation Plus members will be able to enjoy a special new offering on the PS5 console – the PlayStation Plus Collection. PS5 console owners with PlayStation Plus will be able to redeem and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation, like Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Persona 5 and many more. 

The PlayStation Plus Collection will be available* on November 12 when the PS5 console launches in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, and November 19 when the PS5 console launches throughout the rest of the world, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.

Here are the games available in the PlayStation Plus Collection.

From Worldwide Studios:

  • Bloodborne
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • God of War
  • Infamous Second Son
  • Ratchet and Clank 
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Until Dawn

The PlayStation Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PlayStation Plus members receive for a single subscription price – no additional membership fee required. Once you redeem a game from the PlayStation Plus Collection, you can keep the games for as long as you are an active PlayStation Plus member. PS4 games redeemed from the PlayStation Plus Collection and played on the PS5 console will see benefits such as increased loading speed and improved or more stable framerates with PS5’s Game Boost****.

Also, as seen in our user experience video tour, Game Help is a new feature on the PS5 console, and a benefit for PlayStation Plus members. Game Help is available for supported PS5 games and allows players to easily access hints without having to do a web search (and accidentally seeing spoilers!).

  • hey guys I like a stroll down memory lane as much as anyone else I still have my PS2 PS3 and PS4 but sense of pandemics truck the PS Plus members monthly free games are solely lacking come on guys Middle-earth Hollow Knight let’s take a survey of the PS Plus members and see what games they would like to play not just this random throw out every month is boring and garbage

    • I agree. Lots of folks inside during the pandemic, and are tired of fighting – too much of that on the news anyway. More light, fun, puzzle, casual, indie games – that are about connecting, and not repetitive killing each other. Journey, and other interesting indie games are rare Plus offerings, unfortunately. Let’s change it up, Sony.

  • Is there any news regarding PS NOW on PS5? Anything new for PS Now subscribers with PS5 console?

  • I wonder if we get ps5, later down the road we can get the games that on the collection, because I would like to play some games from the collection.

  • Pplleeaassee add The Division 2 to this list. It needs to optimized..ASAP

  • Hollow Knight and yep, that’s about it.

  • I guess Iceborne will be available to buy on launch day? I’m eager to spend another 500hrs on Monster Hunter :3

  • this might be the best month in a good while. also bugsnax free for ps+ is a get. i was thinking of buying it with some psn money i got from scanning receipts in an app so now it can go to something else.

  • Sadly you won’t give us the ps5 patches for your first party when 3rd party is doing it for free, feels bad Man. Uncharted 4, bloodborne :(

  • Bugsnacks and all these games sound amazing!… For those of us with a pre-order who don’t have to get their hands dirty on Black Friday.

  • Very vague details about PS Plus Collection and Bugsnax about if we can redeem them from the web Store. I’m going to be very angry if i can’t redeem those games, cause I’ll buy a PS5 one year from now. I bought PS4 on day one, I’m a PS Plus subscriber from when the service launched and i expect a little customer respect. Don’t if you don’t buy PS5 when we give these games out you lose them.

    • It doesn’t matter if people actually own a PS5 now, it’s always the case that you can just add any Plus game to your download list through either the PS Store Website or the PlayStation App on your smartphone.

      Sony didn’t comment on it because it goes without saying.

    • secourt, Oh sure did seem to me that this is specifically a “buy a ps5, get a free game”-kinda deal.

      They just recently revamped the store further and PS3 games for example aren’t purchasable. Avatars, themes etc. haven’t been in a good while if I’m not mistaken.

      I also could’ve sworn there have been deals that were only available via the console store, but can’t find any example via google. Just remember that happening in the past and thinking it sucked.

      I suppose we’ll see.

    • Oh and the phrasing
      “We’re also thrilled to announce PlayStation Plus members who own a PlayStation 5 console will receive Bugsnax (PS5)” doesn’t have me very optimistic we can just add it to the library from the PC storefront. But… yeah, lets hope for the best.

    • I agree with Secourt below in that we’ll likely be able to add the ps5 game, then download and access it when you own a ps5. This would be consistent with the PSN Collection, except Bugsnax won’t be available indefinitely. But if not, I’ll be an angry PSN such as you Bevita, as a forever subscriber as well. I do recall being able to save only the crossplay vita and ps3 games since I only had a ps4.

    • Yes, you can

    • @ VegetaSSjd10 – Oh how dare you expect a little customer respect from Sony,we aren’t on the PS3 days anymore you know.

  • Sounds awesome, I wanted to try out Bugsnax at some point, looks like there will be a bunch of reasons to keep my Plus Subscription going.
    It’s also awesome that Destruction All Stars is coming in Feb as a part of the line-up too.

    I can’t wait until the 19th of November, it would be great if Sony could start shipping stock earlier here in the UK.

  • Cool to see a PS5 title up there. However despite having pre-ordered the console during the first hours from a Finnish retailer, they’ve estimated that my console will be delivered sometime in January. So even as a early adopter/pre-orderer, seems I can’t take part in that deal since your supply can’t meet the demand at all. I wish there was a way to take this into account somehow.

    Or do you imagine you can supply more consoles to EU countries during the holidays?

  • Dear PlayStation,

    Reminder to get more PS5s to your retailers so that I can buy two for gifts and one for myself…thx

  • Will the PS Plus Collection be playable on PS4?

  • Sony remains vague and unclear on how some of these benefits will work, exactly. Lots of speculation in the comments, but it is just assumptions at this point.

    The wording here implies that you have to own a PS5 in order to redeem your entitlement to the PS5 version of Bugsnax. If I do not yet have a PS5, can I redeem the title through the web store so that it is in my collection if I buy a PS5 in a year or two (assuming I still have an active PS+ membership)?

    Will the PS+ Collection of PS4 titles only be available to download onto the PS5? Will I also be able to download them onto a PS4? Will I be able to claim the collection with a PS+ subscription prior to acquiring a PS5 through the web store or a PS4? Will the collection be available to claim indefinitely or only for a limited time?

  • Why can’t PS hold all these W’s???

  • So I have to own a ps5 to claim the ps5 plus games? Again sony being greedy when most people who might even wanna buy a ps5 can’t! Atleast xbox let’s people claim xbox one games even on xbox 360! I hope this isn’t true!

  • Owned Shadow of War since forever ago… Didn’t like Hollow Knight..BugSnax looked like garbage at reveal and hasn’t changed since.

  • Hello, question… I preordered the ps5 but bcs of low stock I am gettong it after the year 2020… depends on stock (sadly) Is there a way to redeem games and then download them after?

  • Mortal Kombat X not XL?? C’mon…..

    • RE7 ain’t gold edition as well,fallout 4 ain’t goty version etc…they never give the complete editions on Plus or more like the companies want you to at least buy their DLCs.

  • Will Bugsnax be redeemable from the web like other PS4 games are when they come available or only from a PS5 console?

  • Looking forward to playing some of these games for the first time.

  • What an awesome month and time to be a psn subscriber and playstation gamer. I didn’t expect psn to give a ps5 game as many folks in this blog, especially with the PSN Collection. Thanks Sony for also adding the Crash Bandicoot games to it. The collection, as most folks will recall was a response to Microsoft buying Bethesda and making it’s monthly subscription so enticing. This response by Sony benefits all us gamers so it’s much appreciated.

    The 2 ps4 games this month are welcome. Although I already have it, I’d put in 100s of hours on Shadow of War and I rank this a AAA game and a classic that all should try out. I’m also excited to try Hallow Knight, which ranked high on metacritic (87) and was always priced too high to pick up ($30 at Gamestop, for instance). It’s a great month. Keep up the serendipitous treats Sony.

  • So pumped for November 12th.. it’ll be a day to remember

  • That’ll do, blog.

    That’ll do…

  • Really lame that the ps5 game is limited to only those who have a ps5. It would be nice to build up a library considering i will be getting one once they are available

  • Did they at least mention the PS5 improvements of Bugsnax over PS4? Does it include Ray Tracing?

  • Can I leave a suggestion for next PS PLUS game for December 2020 I think you should put Mudrunner and Saints Row: The Third ( 2011 ) It would be great two great open world games!

  • Great stuff

  • They added Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles Edition and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy to PS+ Collection and make to 20 Games

  • It would be great if you could be more clear that users can also claim Bugsnax for PS5 if they do not yet own a PS5 console as they are not available for sale when it launches. “PlayStation Plus members who own a PlayStation 5 console will receive” is either misleading, or a very nasty business practice negatively impacting those PlayStation Plus members who could not acquire a console within the 15-ish minute period where they were available for sale.

  • I wish they added uncharted the lost legacy and shadaow of war for ps4

    sony if you are reading this please add uncharted the lost legacy in december ps plus games pllss

  • Any news on a new silent hill game ?

  • I have one question: I’ve read that for the PS Plus Collection a PS Plus Subscription as well as the PS5 console will be required. So it seems like I can’t just acquire it from the webstore for later.
    We are getting the PS5 at launch, however we won’t unpack it until Chistmas Eve. Will I be able to acquire the PS Plus Collection late? Or is it a timed deal which I have to get around launch?

  • Maybe theme the month where every month one game will be from that theme, January FPS, February RPG, March Indie, April Racing, May fighting, October Horror etc that way variety is always offered.

  • why do we pay for psplus? in fact, why did sony whine at us 5 months ago because we wasn’t paying you enough, when you strip our sevices away, remove wishlists, ruin the firmware update, and CONTINUOUSLY give us terrible free games. theese are niche games the only people who even care at all have already bought them, and everyone else doesn’t care because they’re just not good.

    we pay yearly for this trash, honestly i can’t even remember the last time i added one of theese dumpster fires to my library. my PSN is getting cancelled. already cancelled ps5. everything you have done just leaves a sour taste all my excitement dissapeared, i don’t care about god of war or anything else you’re offering.they are not good enough to justify this draconian crappy policy, firmware uppdate, or the asking price.

    • Are you really saying god of war isn’t good enough? If that isn’t then nothing is dude because god of war is one of the best game franchises to date. I get your perspective but you are starting to sound like a whiny kid at this point.

  • Yaaay to Hollow Knight just yay!! Been wanting to buy it since release cuz the game looks awesome so this is very welcome.As for Mordor 2 I want it in disc and the complete edition but great offer too.Great month,doing good as of late with the lineup Sony so not bad.

    As for the Plus Collection LMAO so funny how you emphasize “no additional membership fee required”…lol as if you clowns would dare to charge us more for that since you added $10 more to the yearly subscription without adding anything just removing A LOT actually…you’re becoming a bunch of jokers indeed.

    As for Bugsnax…there was no other way to get it but free and it’s funny cuz y’all and Young Horses know it lol.

  • Love this information, really looking forward to delving into all these games!

    Any announcements for PSNow for Australia?

  • What a nice surprise!

    I honestly wasn’t expecting any PS+ games for PS5 this month because we were getting the PS+ collection on launch.

    Bugsnax is a perfect choice, I was already going to buy it but looks like now I won’t have to :)

  • so i preorderd the PS5 but im not sure ill get it by the end of November since supply is limited. Will I be able to redeem this collection even after December since i preordered!!!!!

  • This is awesome. 😍 And possibly one of the best PS+ lineups ever. What a way to kickoff next-gen. A free game (Astro) and Bugsnax on day 1. Dope.

    Thanks, Sony! Hooking us up.

  • So this probably gonna be one of those “stupid” questions.

    If I redeem these games when PS Plus collection is available from 19 November here in the UK can I play them on my PS4 or only on the PS5 console?

  • Do PS4 owners get the PS Plus collection?

  • Hey guys im pretty new to this. My last console was a first gen PS3 and im getting a PS5 for Christmas. Im really interested in the PS plus collection since i havent played any of them. But since im not getting the console until the end of december will the ps plus collection still be available at that time or are they going to change the list of games every month?

  • Wait, so the PS+ Collection won’t be available for the PS4? That’s kinda bad actually since a lot of people won’t be able to get a PS5 in a couple of years. I’m one of those but I’m very patient.

    • I’m still waiting for a minimum of 20 games worth playing that are system exclusive, instead of just Zero Dawn 2. Also for them to inevitably redesign the system in a more sensible manner instead of making it look like Seto Kaiba.

  • Not going to lie, you would have been far better off giving PS4 users the Plus Collection games as well. Not interested in EITHER of those PS4 titles.

    • Agreed. I let my plus expire in December last year due to being unhappy with the changes to the service since the PS3 and Vita games were cut, but if PS4 users were also getting the Plus Collection I would have actually been tempted to resubscribe to Plus

  • yo that’s so good thank you sony and PlayStation

  • Wait so is ps plus collection going to be available on the PS4 as well?

  • I wonder why Persona 5 was included instead of Persona 5 Royal..

  • What i wanna knw is if I purchase the console say in April 2020 and activate my ps plus on it will I still be able to get the collection or is it just for November
