Here's what's included in PlayStation's Xbox Game Pass competitor

By Sean Carey,

Sony has now revealed an initial library of games coming to its revamped PlayStation Plus service. The new tiers include games from Sony's first-party studios, third-party titles, some PS1 classics, and streamable PS3 games.

Sony's revised PS Plus subscription service and Xbox Game Pass competitor is broken down into three tiers: Essential, Extra, and Premium. Essential ($9.99/£6.99/€8.99 a month) is unchanged from the PS Plus subscription as it is now, while Extra ($14.99/£10.99/€13.99 a month) also gives subscribers access to a catalogue of PS4 and PS5 games, and Premium ($17.99/£13.49/€16.99 a month) basically combines PS Plus with PS Now, giving members access to the previously listed benefits, as well as PS3 games (via streaming), and library of classic PS1, PS2, and PSP games.

Ubisoft+ PS Plus

Ubisoft has also announced it's partnering with Sony for PlayStation Plus. Beginning on May 24th, Ubisoft will launch a new Ubisoft+ subscription that will be bundled with PS Plus Extra and Premium tiers and will include various classic Ubisoft games. Ubisoft+ Classics "on PlayStation is a curated selection of popular games," including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, The Division, For Honor, and more. Ubisoft+ Classics will launch with 27 titles and grow to 50 by the end of 2022. No mention has been made about Ubisoft+ Classics coming to Xbox Game Pass. Here is the full list of games coming to Ubisoft+ Classics.

Ubisoft+ Classics

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • For Honor
  • The Crew 2
  • Child of Light
  • Eagle Flight
  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
  • Far Cry 3 Remaster
  • Far Cry 4
  • Legendary Fishing
  • Risk: Urban Assault
  • South Park: The Fractured but Whole
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth

  • Star Trek: Bridge Crew
  • Starlink: Battle for Atlas

  • Transference
  • Trials Fusion
  • Trials of the Blood Dragon Game
  • Trials Rising

  • Watch Dogs
  • Werewolves Within

When Sony first announced the service, it mentioned that subscribers would be able to access "up to 400 PS4 and PS5 games" and an additional 340 classic games, so this is not the definitive list that is included with PS Plus. What is interesting here is the Ubisoft/PlayStation partnership. Will Xbox Game pass be getting the Ubisoft+ Classics collection too, or will it be exclusive to PS Plus? Fingers crossed Xbox Game Pass subscribers get it also!

What do you make of the PS Plus subscription library? How do you think this initial list of games stacks up to Xbox Game Pass? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
