Sony’s line-up for the PlayStation Plus Collection has a game for everyone.
The beginning of console generations is always a mix of emotions for consumers. While there is enormous excitement for the improvements made to the hardware, the games at console launch tends to be lacking, both in quality and quantity, for the first few months and up to a year.
Sony looks to combat the issue of quality and quantity by introducing the PlayStation Plus Collection; the full, 20 game line-up was recently released on PlayStation’s blog. This line-up includes revolutionary games that defined the PlayStation 4 generation, some of which appear on both our Best Games of the Decade, and Top Five Horror Games. The list includes games from studio’s owned by Sony, as well as third-party studios.
The Sony published games include:
- Days Gone
- Detroit: Become Human
- God of War
- Infamous Second Son
- Ratchet and Clank
- The Last Guardian
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Until Dawn
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
While the third-party published games include:
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Battlefield 1
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles Edition
- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Fallout 4
- Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition
- Monster Hunter: World
- Mortal Kombat X
- Persona 5
- Resident Evil 7 biohazard
As one can see, many of these games have been recognized in media as being some of the best games released in their respected years and from the previous decade. This line-up allows for early adopters of the PlayStation 5 to go back and experience games that they may have missed in the PlayStation 4 generation, or those who are new to the PlayStation experience have the opportunity to see first hand what Sony was able to achieve during their historic console generation.
Unfortunately, this collection is not expected to be released on the PlayStation 4. Within the fine print on the PlayStation Blog it states that “Active PS Plus membership and PS5 required.” This is unfortunate for the individuals who are not going to be early adopters of the new console and must still purchase the games.
