Although we’ll only see PlayStation Plus switch to a three-tier later this month, it doesn’t automatically mean Sony will stop offering the free monthly games we’ve been used to.
Let’s start with the leaks as usual (because it has become a trend around Sony). First, a Spanish site, Areajugones, and then, the so-far reliable billbil-kun on a French site, Dealabs, described what the three games would be that all PlayStation Plus subscribers will be entitled to (because Essential will be the entry-level, but Extra and Premium will also give access to the games).
Both sources mentioned the same three titles. God of War is coming to PlayStation 4 (admittedly, it is also somewhat of a cheat, as it’s in the PlayStation Plus Collection, but this will be the first time PS4 owners will get it for free), and alongside it, we can expect another game from 2018: Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker. The former is almost certainly part of the marketing, as rumours suggest that a sequel for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, God of War: Ragnarok, could be coming as early as this autumn. And coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 is Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, another Super Smash Bros. clone. The three games will be available to subscribers from June 7 to July 5. Are these three games in the line-up, or has Sony had a chance to change its plans for once?
Yes: unsurprisingly, these three games await us: God of War (PlayStation 4), Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker (PlayStation 4), and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl (PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4). Sony did not announce further details about how the PlayStation Plus Extra and the PlayStation Plus Premium tiers would see their respective game libraries expand. That is a missed opportunity: we expect Sony to make such a move in late June!
We should add here that until Monday, the May games FIFA 22 (PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4), Tribes of Midgard (PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4) and Curse of the Dead Gods (PlayStation 4) are still available.
