The deadline to claim the titles in the PlayStation Plus collection is fast approaching, which means you have until May 9 to claim the more than a dozen PS4 classics included in a PlayStation Plus subscription. Eurogamer notes that the list currently includes some absolute top games, such as Bloodborne, God of war, Ratchet and Clank, The last guardAnd Uncharted 4: The end of a thief.
Sony launched the collection alongside the PlayStation 5 console in 2020, allowing owners of the new console to catch up with some of the biggest games from the previous generation. It was a nice incentive to subscribe to PlayStation Plus and a reminder of the wealth of PS4 titles available to play via backward compatibility in the early days when native PS5 titles were scarce.
It is clear that there are far too many games in the collection to play them all next Tuesday. But when Sony announced the feature’s discontinuation in February, Sony explicitly said that redeeming them before May 9 “gives you access to those titles even after this date, as long as you remain a PlayStation Plus member.” So if you have a hunch that you want to play Ratchet and Clank at some point after that date, best grab it now. Just for safety.
If you don’t, there are at least a few games on the list that will remain available as part of Sony’s more expensive Playstation Plus Extra and Premium tiers. These include Bloodborne, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Batman: Arkham Knight, The last guard, God of war, uncharted 4, And Fallout 4. The full PlayStation Plus catalog can be found on Sony’s site.
