PlayStation Plus Collection: The New Subscription Model Will Keep It

The PlayStation Plus Collection will remain alongside PlayStation Plus, which will arrive in a redesigned form in two months.


We’ve heard that PlayStation Plus will become a three-tier subscription model under the codename Spartacus, where PlayStation Now (streaming, possibly local downloads and games) and older games will be part of the service alongside free monthly games. Sony announced it earlier this week, we wrote about it, and yesterday, we discussed the freebies for April (and, as always, a leak confirmed it all in advance). There will be changes, though: from June, subscribers will only get two games (two PlayStation 5 titles, we wonder…?) instead of the current three.

But the PlayStation Plus Collection was not confirmed in the official announcement. Jonathan Dornbush, writing for IGN, was optimistic about it on Twitter: “For those wondering – PlayStation confirmed to IGN that the PlayStation Plus Collection will not be going away with this change. It will remain a benefit to all PlayStation 5 players with PS Plus.” In other words: even with the lowest, Essential-level (and, of course, active) subscription, the PlayStation 4 collection of games will still be there for us.

But we mentioned it yesterday, but since it’s important, we’re highlighting it again: on 11 May, Persona 5 will leave the PlayStation Plus Collection! Batman: Arkham Knight, Battlefield 1, Bloodborne, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (Zombie Chronicles Edition), Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human, Fallout 4, Final Fantasy XV, God of War, inFAMOUS: Second Son, Monster Hunter World, Mortal Kombat X, Ratchet and Clank, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, The Last Guardian, The Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Until Dawn.

So the collection will remain, but it’s questionable how long it will last, given Sony’s penchant for getting rid of the past (in the past, for example, the PlayStation website eliminated the database for PS3 and older titles).
