Sony recently confirmed that seventeen PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium games would be added to the service on 21 February.
PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscribers can claim seventeen games this month! Four of them are classic games. Of course, fans can also claim PS Plus free games for February 2023, which adds up to a great month. The latest titles are Evil Dead: The Game, OlliOlli World, Destiny 2: Beyond Light and Mafia: Definitive Edition.
PS Plus users who subscribe to Extra and/or Premium get a lot more every month, as this new selection of games proves.
These will be available from 21 February. As usual, it is unknown how long they will remain in the games catalogue. Fans need not rush, but there’s still plenty to dive into.
As you can see below, the PS Plus Extra games for February 2023 include Horizon Forbidden West, The Quarry, Resident Evil 7, Outriders, Scarlet Nexus, Borderlands 3, Tekken 7, Ace Combat 7, Earth Defense Force 5, Oninaki, Lost Sphear, I am Setsuna and The Forgotten City. In addition to these, four new games are coming to PS Plus Premium, including PS1 titles Legend of Dragoon, Wild Arms 2 and Harvest Moon: Back to Nature, as well as Destroy All Humans! Destroy Humans on PS4.
PS Plus Extra and Premium games for February 2023:
- Horizon Forbidden West (PS4/PS5)
- The Quarry (PS4/PS5)
- Resident Evil 7 (PS4/PS5)
- Outriders (PS4/PS5)
- Scarlet Nexus (PS4/PS5)
- Borderlands 3 (PS4/PS5)
- Tekken 7 (PS4)
- Ace Combat 7 (PS4)
- Earth Defense Force 5 (PS4)
- Oninaki (PS4)
- Lost Sphear (PS4)
- I am Setsuna (PS4)

- The Legend of Dragoon (Premium – PS1)
- Wild Arms 2 (Premium – PS1)
- Harvest Moon: Back to Nature (Premium – PS1)
- Destroy All Humans! (Premium – PS4)
What’s interesting here is the addition of Horizon Forbidden West. Sony has been open in the past about not adding any exclusive titles on day one. One could reasonably wonder if they would then add games for roughly a year, as they did here with Horizon Forbidden West. However, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is not yet on the service. That, however, has been out for longer. So it’s hard to say what Sony is selecting based on.
Perhaps the difference is due to the upcoming Burning Shores DLC for Horizon Forbidden West and the forthcoming PSVR2 release of Horizon Call of the Mountain.
After all, Ratchet and Clank has not seen such a significant development since its last release.
Either way, it looks like PS Plus subscribers are in for a real treat. In general, March is the best PS Plus month every year. But based on the free game selection, February is a pretty good bet for the title this year.
