The final batch of games for PlayStation Plus has been released, marking the end of Sony’s old subscription service before being renewed and re-released in the US and Europe later this month.
Three new titles are now available on PS Plus as part of the June monthly releases, including the beloved 2018 God of war, the team-based fighting game Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, and the Super Smash-like Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. bros. According to a PlayStation blog post (opens in new tab)all three games will continue to be available to PS Plus members when the subscription service is relaunched later this month.
That’s quite the mix of titles. God of War is a narrative-heavy action epic that has become one of the standout releases of the PS4 generation, while Naruto to Boruto is a new co-op fighting game that pits characters from the Naruto universe against each other in 4v4 battles.
Meanwhile, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is a lighthearted licensed beat ’em up that stars an eclectic mix of Nick characters like SpongeBob SquarePants and some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to name just a few.
As usual, you will have until the end of the month to claim them.
Great things are coming
Everything changes for PS Plus. Sony’s premium service has restarted into a genuine Xbox Game Pass competitor, delivering subscribers a library of games to download on demand and stream to their console or PC.
The service comes in three tiers: Essential, Extra and Premium. While Essential grants the same benefits as the current version of PS Plus, Extra gives members a bevy of downloadable PS4 and PS5 games. Premium, meanwhile, adds a host of retro games to explore, as well as the option to stream some games, saving you the hassle of downloading all the titles you love to dive into.
We’ve already taken a look at the PS Plus game library as it appears in Asian territories, though we’re hoping it expands for its American and European release. There are many notable AAA games – including Death Stranding, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Ghost of Tsushima – plus a ton of beloved PS1 and PS2 classics.
The new and improved PS Plus is expected to launch in the US on June 13 and in Europe on June 23.
