First Wave of PlayStation Plus Monthly Games for PS5 Detailed

One of the new features introduced with Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PlayStation 5 console is that it will have backwards compatibility with a majority of games from the last generation. While this has been a trend with Microsoft’s Xbox consoles, this is a first from Sony.

Taking full advantage of this, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to take advantage of the PlayStation Plus Collection, a curated library of PlayStation 4 games which can be played on the PlayStation 5 at no additional cost. With games in its line-up including Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter World, Persona 5 and more, the idea is for this (at the current time) is for it to feature games “that defined the generation”.
