PlayStation Plus emerged as a must-have monthly service back in 2010, becoming the chief way players can join multi-player games along with other incentives. The PlayStation Plus Collection, which emerged as a bonus for people who signed up for the service, will be going away later this year but there is still time to grab some of the heavy hitters before they’re gone.
Via the PlayStation Blog, the new monthly games for the PlayStation Plus Essential tier were announced Wednesday (Feb. 1). This month’s offerings are fan-favorite Destiny 2‘s Beyond Light expansion, survival horror title Evil Dead: The Game, skateboard adventure OlliOlliWorld, and organized crime saga Mafia: The Definitive Edition.
Of the three, the star might be Destiny 2′s Beyond Light and the expansion pack includes more looting, a new power in Stasis, and more unfolding on the massive planet of Europa. However, we’re hearing good things about OlliOlliWorld and Evil Dead: The Game enjoyed strong reviews during its initial release. Mafia: The Definitive Edition is a remake of the 2002 original title.
In that same blog post, the PS Plus Collection announcement was tacked on the bottom and we’ll feature the message below:
We also wanted to provide an update on the PlayStation Plus Collection that has been offered as a benefit to PlayStation Plus members on PS5 since 2020. On May 9 the PlayStation Plus Collection will no longer be offered. If you haven’t redeemed the titles in this collection yet, you can still do so until May 9, which will enable you to access those titles even after this date for as long as you remain a PlayStation Plus member.
As the message reads, the games aren’t exactly going away forever but the collection as we’ve come to know it will be gone. Standout titles in the collection include God Of War, Detroit: Become Human, The Last Of Us: Remastered, and Bloodborne among other stunning titles.
