Sony has come to the end of another month and revealed the games that PlayStation Plus Essential (replacing the old PlayStation Plus subscription) subscribers will receive on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

Unlike this trio, November’s line-up is a more hefty offering, as Nioh 2 is not so weak a release that it gets forgotten immediately after the announcement.
And what about PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Premium? It’s a reasonable question because in a post announcing the PS Plus Essential October offerings at the end of September, Sony said they would be revealed “later this month”, and then they took until October 12 to do so, which was a bit ridiculous from the blue team. However, they pulled the same move again: “later this month”, so see you in mid-November…
