PlayStation Plus users get one of 2021’s best games
The official rollout of the all-new PlayStation Plus will take place in June. It will bring with it a host of new games and perks across three tiers.
The long-rumoured PlayStation Plus redesign was officially confirmed by Sony in a blog post last month. However, certain details have not been confirmed. It is not yet known, however, which classic PlayStation or PlayStation 2 games will be available to Premium subscribers. We don’t know what AAA games will be available to Extra subscribers.
Sony claims that the Extra Tier will give access to 400 of “the most fun PS4 and PS5 gaming experiences”, some big names included. However, this is not enough to convince people to spend their money.
We do have an idea about what Extra subscribers can expect. It looks like they will be able to get ready for one of the 2021’s most exciting games. Return is a procedurally generated sci-fi shooter by Housemarque that has been sadly underrated. It’s easily one of the best exclusives on the PlayStation 5. It’s a beautiful, atmospheric game that is a joy to play. It’s one of the first games that will be free with PlayStation Plus Extra!
In fact, Ilari Kuittinen, Housemarque’s managing director, expressed his enthusiasm for the idea when he spoke to Eurogamer last week at the BAFTAs and shared his hopes that Returned can reach a new audience.
“It’s been quite some time since the release. He said that subscriptions are popular and people who subscribe play a lot. It’s free and there are no hidden costs.
Return is a wonderful game. However, it’s one you have to experience for yourself. Let’s hope that this is what happens in June.
Other AAA games that have been confirmed by Sony’s new PlayStation Plus include Marvel’s Spider-Man and Death Stranding. It’s not bad at all.
