What is the lineup of games included with the all-new PlayStation Plus?

The new PlayStation Plus will launch with hundreds* of titles across three membership plans. The curated content will include blockbuster hits such as Demon’s Souls, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, NBA 2K 22, Red Dead Redemption 2, Returnal, and more. Here is a sample list we announced on PlayStation Blog. Titles may vary by local market.

I’m already a PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now subscriber. What will happen with my membership?

Current PlayStation Plus members will transition to PlayStation Plus Essential, enjoying the same benefits that PlayStation Plus provides today, such as PS4 and PS5 monthly games, exclusive discounts, cloud storage for saved games, online multiplayer access, and more. There are no changes to the existing benefits you get from PlayStation Plus.

Existing PlayStation Now members will transition to PlayStation Plus Premium, with no increase to their current subscription fees at launch. For more information, please visit our website.

Will PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now still be available as standalone subscriptions?

When the new PlayStation Plus service launches, PlayStation Now will no longer be available as a standalone subscription service, and current PlayStation Now users will migrate to PlayStation Plus Premium. 

For PlayStation Plus, benefits will remain the same in the first plan option, which is rebranded as PlayStation Plus Essential. Additional benefit plan options will be added, please see the above chart.

How often will new titles be introduced to the new PlayStation Plus service?

Games will continue to refresh monthly with the all-new PlayStation Plus service, so there is always something new to play. In keeping with our normal cadence for PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now, the refreshes will occur twice monthly. Please check PlayStation.Blog for the latest monthly game announcements. 

PlayStation Plus Essential 

  • A monthly refresh will occur on the first Tuesday of the month for the PlayStation Plus Essential plan (and both higher tiers), with new PS4 and PS5 games every month – same as what PlayStation Plus members get today. 

PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium/Deluxe 

  • Another monthly refresh will occur in the middle of the month with new games across PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium/Deluxe plans. The number of games refreshed will vary per month.

What devices can I use to play games with the new PlayStation Plus membership?

The new PlayStation Plus is currently supported on the following devices:

  • PlayStation 5 console
  • PlayStation 4 console
  • PC – streaming only

PlayStation Plus monthly games that were previously downloaded on PS3 and PS Vita devices will continue to remain accessible as long as the user remains a PlayStation Plus member.  

What games will I be able to stream or download on the new PlayStation Plus?

The ability to download or stream games on PlayStation Plus will depend on the plan benefit you choose, and the market location. Please see the list of market locations above that will launch with the PlayStation Plus Premium plan.

Downloading (PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium/Deluxe plans)

  • Original PlayStation, PSP, PS4 and PS5 games are available for download to play. 
  • Remastered or remake versions of PS2 and PS3 games will also be downloadable for play on PS4 and PS5 consoles. 

Streaming (PlayStation Plus Premium plan)

  • Original PlayStation, PS2, PS3, PS4 and PSP games are available for streaming through the Premium plan, available in select markets. This includes streaming access to titles from the games catalog offered in Extra and Premium plans. 
  • Please note streaming access for some titles, including classic games, will occur after launch for the PlayStation Premium plan. Streaming availability may also vary by title. Streaming is also not available for PS5 titles. 
  • Games can be streamed on PS4 and PS5 consoles and PC. 

Monthly games from the Essential plan remain the same as downloadable games only. 

Will original PlayStation and PSP games from the PlayStation Plus classic game catalog offer trophies?

Some original PlayStation and PSP titles may offer trophies such as Ape Escape, Hot Shots Golf, IQ Intelligent Qube, and Syphon Filter. This feature is optional for developers.  

Can I transfer game progress from the time-limited game trials included in the PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe plan if I decide to buy the game?

Yes. Any trophies and game save data from the trial period will carry-forward if you purchase the game. 

If I earned trophies after trying out a time-limited game trial title through PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe, and decide not to buy the title, can I still keep my trophies?

Trophies earned during your time-limited game trial through the PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe plan will remain on your PSN profile, even after you complete the trial and decide not to purchase the title. If you decide to purchase the title at a later time, you can continue to earn trophies where you left off.  

Will game progress from the PlayStation Plus games catalog be transferred between PS4 and PS5 consoles if I choose to finish the game on a different device? 

If you are playing a downloaded game from the PlayStation Plus games catalog, the save data will be saved to your PS4 or PS5 console, depending on the console you are playing on. You can manually upload your game save to PlayStation Plus cloud storage and download it to either a PS4 or PS5 console.

If you are a PlayStation Plus Premium member and you are streaming a game from the PlayStation Plus games catalog, the saved data will be automatically stored within the PlayStation Plus Game Streaming Storage and you can pick up and stream on another device without taking any additional steps. 

Will DLC and add-ons work with downloaded games from the PlayStation Plus catalog?

Yes. You can purchase DLC and add-on content for the games you download from the games catalog through PlayStation Plus. If your membership expires, or if the content leaves the service you’ll also lose access to the DLC and add-on content associated with that game. Once you resubscribe to the service or decide to purchase the title, you’ll be able to use your purchased DLC and add-on content again.

Please note, DLC and add-on content is not supported when streaming a title. 

When I’m offline, can I play games I’ve downloaded from the games catalog offered in PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium/Deluxe?

Yes. However, when playing a downloaded game from the game catalog in PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium/Deluxe plans, you’ll need to connect to PSN every seven days to validate your PlayStation Plus membership and maintain your access to the game. 

Please note, this step is only required for game catalog titles in the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium/Deluxe plans. It does not apply to the monthly downloadable games available through PlayStation Plus Essential. 

With this service change, will I have to redownload any games that were previously acquired via PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now?

For PlayStation Plus games you have previously redeemed to your PSN account, those games will still remain as part of your game library as long as you are a PlayStation Plus member. There are no changes to your PlayStation Plus benefits.

*Availability of Classics, Game Trials and Game Catalog varies over time, country/region and plan. See https://www.playstation.com/Plus for details and updates on PS Plus offerings. PlayStation Plus is an ongoing subscription subject to a recurring subscription fee taken automatically (at the then-current PS Store price) at the frequency you choose at purchase until cancellation. Terms apply: play.st/psplus-usageterms
