The PlayStation Plus Game Catalog has gotten a refresh.
Sony recently announced a slew of new games making their way to the PlayStation subscription service with Horizon Forbidden West and The Legend of Dragoon leading the charge. This comes after Sony announced the discontinuation of the PS Plus Collection.
The new additions will take place on the Extra and Premium tiers of PS Plus on Feb. 21. The additions feature a mix of current and last generation games as well as classic games on the Premium tier.
The titles joining the game catalog on both the Extra and Premium tiers include:
- Horizon Forbidden West (PS4/PS5 versions)
- The Quarry (PS4/PS5)
- Resident Evil 7 biohazard (PS4)
- Outriders (PS4/PS5)
- Scarlet Nexus (PS4/PS5)
- Borderlands 3 (PS4/PS5)
- Tekken 7 (PS4)
- Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (PS4)
- Earth Defense Force 5 (PS4)
- Ohinaki (PS4)
- Lost Sphear (PS4)
- I am Setsuna (PS4)
- The Forgotten City (PS4/PS5)
The games joining the classic catalog on the Premium tier include:
- The Legend of Dragoon (PS1)
- Wild Arms 2 (PS1)
- Harvest Moon: Back to Nature (PS1)
- Destroy All Humans! (PS1)
Horizon Forbidden West’s addition came as a surprise to many on Social Media given that the game is just over a year old. Many lauded the addition as a great marketing tool since the game’s downloadable content and spinoff title are right around the corner.
Others thought it was a sign of poor sales of the game and Sony trying to improve sales figures. Sony has not released those sales figures at the time of writing,
Developer Guerilla Games revealed, during the 2022 The Game Awards, a DLC package called Burning Shores, which will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5. The DLC, which will release on April 19, will be set in Los Angeles as the Hollywood sign was featured in the reveal trailer.
The spinoff title is called Horizon Call of the Mountain and is geared toward the PlayStation VR2. This spinoff will release on Feb. 22.
The announcement also comes close to the first anniversary of Horizon Forbidden West, which developers recently celebrated.
Many on social media were also excited about the release of The Legend of Dragoon, a Japenese role-playing game released in 2000 in North America. The title saw a rerelease in North America on PlayStation Network’s PlayStation Classic in 2012.
Many of the other games have landed favorably with audiences with The Forgotten City, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Tekken 7, Scarlet Nexus, Resident Evil 7 biohazard, and Harvest Moon: Back to Nature all scoring above 80 on Metacritic.
PS Plus is a gaming subscription service that provides users with on-demand titles in varying tiers. The subscription launched alongside the release of the PlayStation 5 in 2020 and has undergone changes.
The service was initially one tier, but underwent a revamp in 2022 to create the three tiers called Essential, Extra, and Premium. The revamp met a mixed response since its release.
