PlayStation Plus Adds up to 13 Games to Service, Including Back 4 Blood, Devil May Cry 5, and Dragon Ball FigtherZ

The new year is here, and it brings with it a new wave of PS Plus games! This is about the Extra and Premium games, as the Essential titles were announced late last month. As usual, you can check out PS Plus vs Game Pass article to see how the two stack up. Let’s get into it!


Extra

All the games in this section are also available for Premium subscribers. PS4 games also work on the PS5, unless otherwise specified.


Back 4 Blood (PS4, PS5)

The spiritual successor to Valve’s Left 4 Dead series, this is a co-op shooter where you and up to three friends (so 4 total) go up against hordes of zombies. The title isn’t as well regarded as its influence, but it’s still a good time.


Dagon Ball FighterZ (PS4)

The latest and greatest Dragon Ball Z fighting game. Play as you favorite Dragon Ball characters across a variety of game modes, including an original story with characters whose creation was supervised by Akira Toriyama himself, and an art-style that captures the anime flawlessly while still keeping its 3rd dimension.


Devil May Cry 5 (Special Edition for PS5, Standard Edition for PS4)

The latest entry in Capcom’s Spectacle Fighter, DMC5 will let you slice and blast demons as Dante, Nero, and newcomer V. You can also play a parallel campaign as Virgil. The game brings the high-octane action and edgy music that fans of the series love.


Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm (PS4)

A duo of point-and-click adventures in the style of Telltale Games. You follow a group of teenagers, some of which have supernatural powers, as they try to live their lives while the world around them throws curveball after curveball.


Sayonara Wild Hearts (PS4)

Update: The game was added by mistake and was removed from the list. We can probably look forward to it in the following month.

A rhythm game full of color and neon lights. The game is really short, only about an hour and a half to finish (over 9 hours to complete), so you can enjoy it in an afternoon if you want a break from 30+ hour AAA titles.

Slight epilepsy warning for the trailer. It’s not too bad, but better safe than sorry.


Jett: The Far Shore (PS4, PS5)

A sci-fi game about carving a future for a people that was hunted into oblivion. The game sees you aboard a titular Jett as you explore a vast landscape, not having to worry about combat… well, for a while, at least.


Just Cause 4: Reloaded (PS4, PS5)

Update: There is no PS5 version of the game. It’s a mistake on the blog’s part that has now been corrected.

Explore and blow-up an open-world as Rico Rodriguez, in your quest to liberate a South American area from oppression. The game keeps the high-octane gameplay of the previous titles, as you zip-line and glide your way across the map.

If you want to stream the game, you’ll have to make do with the base version of the game.


Omno (PS5)

A single-player adventure where you explore a unique and stylish world full of vibrant and exquisite life-forms. The movement in the game is very smooth and quick, letting you almost glide across the map, as you fight enemies and solve puzzles.


Erica (PS4)

A Full-Motion Video Game (everything is live-action) thriller about Erica and her quest to find out who killed her father. Since there are mystery elements involved, it’s best to go into this one blind.


Premium

All the games in this section have been enhanced with up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters.


Syphon Filter 3 (PS1)

Rounding up the Syphon Filter trilogy on PS1, the third title in the series continues the story of the first two games, who center on Gabriel Logan and his team of special agents. If you haven’t played the previous two games, you should probably do that before getting into this one.


Star Wars Demolition (PS1)

Vehicular combat using various Star Wars vehicles. Not much to say about this one, it’s as fun as that premise can get. Apologies for the sound on this one, the game is real old and finding trailers for it isn’t easy.


Hot Shots Golf 2

It’s a golf game. Again, not much to say, aside from the fact that the roster of playable characters seems varied and fun.
