In March, Sony unveiled a new gaming service called Sony PlayStation Plus, which combines its PS Now and PS Plus memberships into a single service. The corporation had previously stated that this new service would be live somewhere in the first half of 2022 at the latest. Now, some two months later, the firm has revealed the service’s rollout.
This launch comes in addition to a detailed list of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 games that will be available to subscribers of the PlayStation Plus Extra as well as Premium and Deluxe plans when the service begins.

Sony has revealed specific games would be included with a PlayStation Plus subscription. Sony will not, however, include new first-party titles in subscription packages. Therefore, titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Forbidden West, and Grand Turismo 7 will not be included in PlayStation Plus in the beginning. Below are the games.
