There’s some new games for PS Plus subscribers on the Extra and Premium tiers. The star of the show are the Yakuza games, but we’re also getting Metro Exodus, Tom Clancy’s Wildlands, Bugsnax, and more.
There were also a few games added earlier this month to the Essential tier, so they’re also available to the higher tiers and we’ll mention them in this article. However, we don’t know if they’ll be added to the Extra games catalogue after they’re no longer available, so go claim them. This way you’ll also be able to play them after they’re gone.
There are no games exclusive for Premium subscribers this time around, meaning no new additions to the the Classics catalogue. That’s a bit disappointing. If you want to see what PS Plus has to offer and how it stacks up against Xbox’s Game Pass, check out our dedicated guide.
Yakuza Series – Essential (Like a Dragon), Extra and Premium
Deja vu, I have seen these games before! After being added to Game Pass last month, the Yakuza series is making its way to PlayStation as well. Only 4 games added this month, but the rest will arrive later in the year.
The first game added is Yakuza: Like a Dragon, for the Essential tier. This is the latest game in the series, and probably the last one you’d want to play chronologically. Still a good idea to claim it for your account.
The other 3 games are Zero, a prequel to the original series released later down the line, and Kiwami 1 & 2, remakes of the first two games. These 3 are only available to those subscribed to Extra and above.
The Yakuza games are action-adventure open-world role-playing games where you follow Kazuma Kiryu as he tries to navigate the political drama of the yakuza life.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 – Essential, Extra and Premium
The most famous skating games out there, this bundle contains HD remasters of the original 2 games. Aside from the original roster consisting of Tony Hawk, Kareem Campbell, Bucky Lasek and more, this version also contains a number of Olympian skaters, like Nyjah Huston, Aori Nishimura, Leticia Bufoni, and more.
Little Nightmares – Essential, Extra and Premium
Last game on our list that can be claimed from the Essential tier. This is a 2D platformer set in a dark and unforgiving world. You control Six, a small creature in a raincoat, as you make your way trough the Maw and try to escape it’s horrors.
Dead by Daylight – Extra and Premium
Continuing our horror streak, we have a 1v4 survival multiplayer game. Play as either one of 4 regular teens trying to escape a seemingly unstoppable masked killer, or as said killer, trying to gruesomely murder those meddling kids. You can also play as famous slasher movie villains, like Jason Vorhees and Michael Myers.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands – Extra and Premium
So, we did a whoopsie in our last Game Pass article. We said Ghost Recon Breakpoint would be coming to the service. In actuality, it is Wildlands that will be coming to the service. That’s our bad and we apologize for any confusion that might have caused!
Speaking of Wildlands, it’s also on PS Plus right now! The game was released in 2017, and it is the first open-world Ghost Recon. It is a third-person tactical shooter set in a then-modern-day setting. The game sees players traversing the open world and completing various objectives with their squad. The game can be played solo or in online co-op.
Bugsnax – Extra and Premium
What happens when you cross Pokemon Snap, a survival game with crafting elements, and the contents of your fridge? You get Bugsnax! The game is set on Snaktooth island, and you play as an investigative reporter who went on the island to look for a missing friend. Capture the titular creatures that roam the island, and discover the mystery at the heart of the game.
Metro Exodus – Extra and Premium
The third game in the Metro series, this is a first-person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic Russia. Unlike the previous two games, which were set in Moscow’s metro system, resulting in claustrophobic corridors and dark environments, Exodus is set in a more open world, mostly on the surface of the Russian territory and in vast areas.
The previous two games, 2033 and Last Light, are also available on PS Plus via their Redux versions (remastered versions for PS4 and Xbox One). However, they’re only available to Premium subscribers as part of the Classics Catalogue, likely because those two games were originally released for PS3.
Trails of Mana – Extra and Premium
The 2020 remake of the 1995 original game, and known as Seiken Densetsu 3 in Japan. The Mana series is a spin-off of Final Fantasy, starting in 1991 with Final Fantasy Adventure (NA)/Mythic Quest (EU)/Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden(JP). It was followed up by Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2 in Japan) in 1993.
The game is an action RPG where you control a selection of 3 out of 6 possible protagonists. Story elements unfold differently depending on which characters you pick. The 2020 remake includes elements not available in the original, like 3D graphics, camera control, and new gameplay elements.
UNO, Monopoly Madness, and Monopoly Plus – Extra and Premium
Ending the list with 3 party games! UNO and Monopoly Plus are basically digital versions of the classic games. Monopoly Madness is more of a party game that takes inspiration from the original Monopoly for some of its assets, with gameplay happening simultaneously for each player.
All of these games are available to play now, so what are you waiting for, go!
