Sony has announced more details about how the PlayStation Plus Collection works in a new blog post. The service will launch alongside consoles in the US on November 12 and will offer PS5 owners more than a dozen classic PS4 titles. Titles will be available to PS Plus subscribers at no additional cost, and they will remain accessible for as long as the subscription is active.
The service launch date varies globally, depending on when the console itself will be available. It will be available on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, and on November 19 in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Asia, and South Africa. The collection is not available in China, and it’s available only to PS5 customers. It’s unclear whether PS4 owners who don’t own the PS5 will be able to access the games.
Sony has published an updated list of titles that will be available as part of the PlayStation Plus Collection. Includes a couple of games that weren’t on the original list last month; Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Zombies Chronicles Edition, Crash Bandicoot N, and Sane Trilogy. Here’s the full list, which Sony cautions will vary by region:
- Days Gone
- Detroit: Become Human
- God of War
- Infamous Second Son
- Ratchet and Clank
- The Last Guardian
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Until Dawn
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Battlefield 1
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles Edition
- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Fallout 4
- Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition
- Monster Hunter: World
- Mortal Kombat X
- Persona 5
- Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
- Official: PUBG Coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X / S
- The PS5 DualSense unboxing reveals Android and PC support.

Sony says these PS4 games should benefit from being run on the PS5’s more powerful hardware and also benefit from faster loading times and more consistent frame rates in some cases.
As well as announcing more details about the PlayStation Plus Collection, Sony also announced which games PS Plus subscribers will get free next month. Includes the first free PS5 game, Bugsnax, which will be available from November 3rd to January 4th. (The PS4 version of the game, however, won’t be free.) Meanwhile, the PS4 games that will be available are Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition, which will be available from November 3rd to November 30th.
