PlayStation Plus is set to introduce an exciting new lineup of games this September, but there’s a catch; these games will only be available for Extra and Premium tier subscribers. According to insider Billbil-kun, the list includes noteworthy titles such as Nier Replicant, Star Ocean The Divine Force, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contract 2, and Unpacking.
While these new additions are certainly exciting, the change also comes with a price — literally. PlayStation Plus recently increased the cost of its 12-month subscription plans across all tiers, with hikes ranging from $20-$40 / £10-£20 / €12-€32 depending on the level of membership. This follows last month’s game selection, which included popular titles such as Lost Judgment and Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed in the Game Catalogue, as well as MediEvil: Resurrection, Ape Escape: On the Loose, and Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice in the Classics Catalogue.
The service doesn’t just stop at newer titles; it also caters to the nostalgic gamer. PlayStation Plus Premium offers downloadable games from the PS1, PS2, and PSP eras, and PS3 games via cloud streaming. If you’re into a variety of gaming experiences across different console generations, this might be an incentive to consider the Premium tier.
Not all details are out yet, though. The official announcement for September’s game additions will be made later this week on September 13, and according to Billbil-kun, even more titles will be added to the Game Catalogue. So, for those eagerly awaiting the complete list, a little more patience is required.
In summary, if you’re considering upgrading your subscription or are new to PlayStation Plus, now might be a good time, especially if you’re interested in the games that are reportedly on the horizon. However, bear in mind the recent price hike when making your decision. With an array of new and classic games, PlayStation Plus continues to be a major player in the realm of online gaming services.
