💪 PS Plus Premium/Extra is receiving a bumper crop of new games this month
😮 Expect to see 20 new titles, including Rainbow Six Siege and Skyrim
🏘 Indie fans are also in for a treat with What Remains of Edith Finch
🤗 You can also dip into Kingdom Hearts, Ratchet & Clank, and a bunch of smaller games
Sony has revealed the next bunch of games hitting PS Plus Premium and PS Plus Extra in November, as 20 new titles make their way to the subscription service.
Headlining the selection is Bethesda’s classic fantasy RPG, Skyrim. The game’s so ubiquitous, it’d be difficult not to have accidentally stumbled into the boots of the Dragonborn by now, but there’s always a time to return to Tamriel.
Alongside it comes the multiplayer tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege, which should offer a bit of fun for anyone who likes tense PvP firefights.
On the other end of the spectrum are four Kingdom Hearts games, including Kingdom Hearts III, meaning it’s a good time to own a PS Plus Premium/Extra subscription if you’re a Final Fantasy and Disney fan.
Also on the docket is platformer Oddworld: Soulstorm, multiplayer RPG shooter The Division 2, and testosterone-fuelled military shooter Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
More interesting is the placid but provocative narrative indie adventure What Remains of Edith Finch. You’ll explore the colossal Finch family home, gradually unraveling its secrets and personal histories. It’s well worth your time, and clocking in at only two hours long, there’s no excuse to pass it up.
Space combat shooter Chorus is coming to the service, too, alongside a few smaller titles.
Rounding off the list are the five Ratchet & Clank games Sony announced would be coming to PS Plus in celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary. They’re only available to stream, though, so you’ll have to be a PS Plus Premium member to enjoy them. Every other game is available to Extra and Premium subscribers.
So, in summary, here are all the games hitting PS Plus Premium and PS Plus Extra on November 15:
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition | PS4, PS5
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege | PS4, PS5
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX | PS4
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue | PS4
Kingdom Hearts III | PS4
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory | PS4
Oddworld: Soulstorm – Enhanced Edition | PS4, PS5
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 | PS4
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint | PS4
Chorus | PS4, PS5
What Remains of Edith Finch | PS4
The Gardens Between | PS4, PS5
Earth Defense Force: World Brothers | PS4
Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain | PS4
Onee Chanbara Origin | PS4
Ratchet & Clank | PS3
Ratchet & Clank 2: Going Commando | PS3
Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal | PS3
Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked | PS3
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction | PS3
We’re still a little salty that Sony won’t add Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart to PS Plus for the series’ 20th anniversary. It’s one of the best PS5 games by our reckoning and would make a fine addition to any library. Sony’s unwillingness to put its first-party titles on the service might have something to do with PS Plus’ rapidly falling subscriber base.
Adam reckons it’s not worth bagging a PS Plus Extra or Premium subscription right now, but a peruse of the PlayStation Plus Premium games list might change your mind. Maybe it includes something you’ve been desperate to play.
