The PlayStation Plus Collection, announced today during Sony’s PlayStation 5 Showcase livestreaming event, is an assortment of modern classics from the PlayStation 4 coming to PS5 at launch. It includes first-party as well as third-party hits, from Fallout 4 to The Last Guardian. Sony indicated that players will be able to simply download versions of these games and start playing when the PS5 becomes available.

When it was announced, it was not clear if the Plus Collection was a new product with a separate fee. That was cleared up shortly after the livestream on the official PlayStation blog.

For PlayStation Plus members, we’ll have a special new offering on PS5 — the PlayStation Plus Collection. PS5 owners with PS Plus will be able to download and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation [...]. The PS Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PS Plus members receive for a single subscription price.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
