UPDATE 29/4/22: More games have been found that are likely to be added to the upcoming PlayStation Plus Premium service on Sony’s servers, in addition to the three originally found below.
Data for the PS1 classic Worms Armageddon and its sequel Worms World Party have now also both been spotted (thanks, Gematsu).
As a reminder, PlayStation has yet to officially confirm the games launching in Europe on June 22.
ORIGINAL STORY 28/4/22: Sony’s revamped PlayStation Plus isn’t too far off now, with the company currently targeting a June 22 launch in Europe, but questions still remain about the service, particularly in regards to the library of games that will be made available. for higher subscribers. But while Sony’s lips remain officially sealed, it seems that the first batch of retro games to make it to the premium Premium tier has started leaking to PSN.
The new Premium tier of PlayStation Plus gives subscribers access to approximately 340 additional games in addition to the library of 400 PS4 and PS5 titles in the mid-range Extra, with a focus on retro games from PlayStation 1, PS2, PS3 and PSP. Sony hasn’t released any details on either library yet, but users on Reddit have noted that new lists for classic titles, complete with new thumbnail images, are appearing in the PSN backend, signaling the start of a rollout for PlayStation Plus’ retro games.
Admittedly, there are currently only three such titles to be found, all from publisher Bandai Namco – Tekken 2 and Mr. Driller for PlayStation 1 and Ridge Racer for PSP – but it does suggest that the floodgates are slowly starting to open as publishers move to get their classic titles ready for the new PlayStation Plus launch.
Of course, with 340 classic games set to become available on June 22 as part of PlayStation Plus Premium, there’s still a long way to go before we have a full list (I hope you’ll forgive me if I don’t write a new article for every small batch released from is now spotted on PSN – unless Gregory Horror Show is in that, of course), and we still have no idea what will be included in those 400 PS4 and PS5 games after the confirmed Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider- Man, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11 and Returnal.
It’d be fair to say that Sony’s approach to answering frequently asked questions about its new PlayStation Plus service has been slow at best so far – it’s only just come to telling PlayStation Now customers what happened to their new PlayStation Plus service yesterday. existing subscriptions would happen – but hopefully, with a June launch approaching, it will quickly pick up the pace.
