When PlayStation 5 was released in November 2020, console owners received an important announcement. As soon as they signed up for a PlayStation Plus subscription (or were already a PlayStation 4 subscriber), they would have access to an incredible collection of games. To be exact, 20 truly great games that were collected under the name of PS Plus Collection.
The idea of the Japanese company was that this twenty video games collected the best that had left us PlayStation 4, so it became an incredible first touchstone for PS5 owners: play the best of the previous house in the new one. However, this dream will end next May 9.
Sony already announced a few months ago that this would happen on this day. However, some gamers expected the Japanese to backtrack and pick up cable; nothing further from reality, that will not happen and in two weeks a total of 19 games (some already left early) will leave this mode. The list is as follows:
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Battlefield 1
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles Edition
- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Days Gone
- Detroit: Become Human
- Fallout 4
- Final Fantasy XV
- God of War
- inFamous: Second Son
- Monster Hunter World
- Mortal Kombat X
- Ratchet & Clank
- Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
- The Last Guardian
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
- Until Dawn
Is there a way to keep them forever?
Once the aforementioned May 9 arrives, these 19 video games will disappear from the collection. However, there is a way to have them for us “forever” (and we put it in quotation marks, because it has a trick).
If you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber right now, run and add them to your library. Now. Without wasting time. No need to download them: just by adding them to your library they will remain registered in your history forever, so you will be able to download them even if the collection has been officially removed.
Obviously, there is a “trick” to this (as we said before). Games can only be downloaded as long as you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber. In other words, in case you unsubscribe from this membership, you will not have access to the 19 titles in question. But again, remember the “trick” (it seems we are in a video game): if you were to re-subscribe in the future, the games can be downloaded again as they are in your history already previously.
In other words, the summary is as follows:
- Go running to add all these video games to your library.
- As long as you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber you’ll be able to play them. That’s it.
It’s a shame that Sony is killing off a collection that’s so good for users with the stroke of a pen. In fact, it was always thought that this would be increasing as the months passed, but far from that, what it has lost is some game and now, unfortunately, its disappearance forever. Take advantage of these remaining days to download the 19 titles and at least have them registered in your library for posterity.
