The PS Plus Collection is a great lineup of free PS4 games that fans can enjoy on their new PlayStation 5 consoles. It’s meant to kickstart anyone who has swapped over consoles or have just joined the PlayStation platform. There are a total of 20 games from the PS4 era, split between first-party and third-party partners. The PlayStation Plus Collection went live on November 12, meaning it’s available to download and enjoy from the PSN Store.
This includes some of the best PlayStation exclusives available on the PS4 console, with Sony telling fans before launch:
“PlayStation Plus members will be able to enjoy a special new offering on the PS5 console – the PlayStation Plus Collection.
“PS5 console owners with PlayStation Plus will be able to redeem and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation, like Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Persona 5 and many more.
“The PlayStation Plus Collection will be available on November 12 when the PS5 console launches in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, and November 19 when the PS5 console launches throughout the rest of the world, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.”
The PS Plus Collection has been built specifically for the PlayStation 5 console but gamers have noticed something interesting.
