Sony has revealed a load of new details on the upcoming relaunch of PlayStation Plus, including what games to expect at the Extra and Premium tiers.
Combining PlayStation Plus with PlayStation Now into one subscription, the “all-new” PlayStation Plus features three tiers of content, with PlayStation Plus Essential offering basically what players have access to now.
Meanwhile, PlayStation Plus Extra includes a downloadable library of PS4 and PS5 games, and now we've got a list of titles that will be available around the launch of the upgraded service, including some of the higher-priced PS5 games like Demon's Souls and Returnal, as well as some cult hits like Gravity Rush and Tearaway Unfolded. There's also several titles from third-party developers - you can check out the list below
Of course, there's also the higher-priced PlayStation Plus Premium tier (or Deluxe in areas without PS3 streaming), which offers a variety of classic content from the PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP. Again, Sony have revealed a few of the games to expect around launch, including classics like Ape Escape, Syphon Filter, Jumping Flash, Tekken 2, and Jak & Daxter, among others. You can see that list below, although strangely, it seems that Sony isn't offering any emulated PS2 games, instead including PS4-native remasters of those PS2 games, which might irk those that were unhappy with the quality of the remasters, and want to play the originals instead.

Finally, the PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe tier also offers up Time-Limited Game Trials, allowing players to download a full game and play for up to two hours, with trophies and save data carrying over if you choose to buy it. The most exciting of these is Horizon Forbidden West, but it will also launch with Cyberpunk 2077 and Tiny Tina's Wonderlands.
PlayStation Plus Essential will of course be updated with new monthly PS4 and PS5 games to claim on the first Tuesday of each month, as PlayStation Plus does already, and there will be a monthly mid-month refresh of the Game Catalogue on PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Premium as well.
The All-New PlayStation Plus launches in Asia on 24th May, then Japan on 2nd June, followed by North America and South America on 13th June, and finally Europe, New Zealand, and Australia on 23rd June.
