It has been confirmed that all the games included in PS Plus Collection will no longer be available from May 9, 2023, but there is a “secret” method that allows you to keep the collection forever.
The PlayStation 5 console was launched in November 2020 with PlayStation Plus Collection as one of the main benefits for those who managed to get their hands on the console, which until recently was not an easy feat, and had an active PS Plus subscription.
This service offered access to a wide selection of PlayStation 4 games to enjoy on the new generation console. In summary, a total of 20 very attractive games arrived under a catalog called PS Plus Collection, including some of the best PS4 games.
The company’s goal was to attract as many people as possible to buy the new generation console, and among the strategies was to offer the best games from the previous generation console for free.
Now, according to HobbyConsolas, all games included in the PS Plus Collection will no longer be available starting May 9, 2023. Thus, the collection of some of the best PlayStation 4 games will disappear, and those who buy a PS5 with PS Plus after this date will no longer have access to these games.
It’s important to note that the service originally had 20 games available, but in 2022, Persona 5 left the list, so now there are 19 games available until May 9th.
Games such as God of War, Days Gone, Ratchet and Clank, Mortal Kombat X, and The Last of Us Remastered, will no longer be part of the benefits that were available since the launch day of PlayStation 5.
This is the complete list of games that disappear along with the PS Plus Collection:
Starting from May 9th, all the games in the list above will no longer be available in the PS Plus Collection, but there is a trick that allows you to have them forever, you just need to follow a simple process.
It is necessary to have an active PlayStation Plus subscription in order to keep the games in the collection, this is essential. After that, you just have to add them to your library and that’s it, as easy as that.
You don’t need to download or install them, just add them to your game library on your PS5. If you want to see the whole process in detail, our colleagues at Hobbyconsolas explain how to save and play forever all the games in the PlayStation Plus Collection for PS5, step by step.
It’s also worth noting that you cannot add all the games to your library at once, but must go through each game individually. However, since there are only 19 titles available, this process shouldn’t be too difficult.
It should be clarified that using this trick to obtain all the free games from the PS Plus Collection can only be done from the PS5 console. This means that you cannot claim them from the web, official app, or another Sony console such as the PlayStation 4.
