Details surrounding the PS5’s new PlayStation Plus Collection have been scarce since its announcement at Sony’s PS5 reveal event. Described as a PS5 exclusive benefit for PlayStation Plus subscribers, it allows PS5 users to play a curated selection of PS4 backwards-compatible games similar to how Xbox Game Pass works on Xbox Series X.

However, we now have all the details on the PS4 titles PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to play when the PS5 launches!

In its monthly post on the PlayStation Blog (opens in new tab), Sony has revealed a number of details concerning the PlayStation Plus Collection, which features 20 games at launch, from both Sony's Worldwide Studios and partnering third-party developers.

All of the titles benefit from improved load times or improved framerates thanks to the PS5's Game Boost feature. As an added bonus, the PlayStation Plus Collection doesn't incur any additional costs to existing or new PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Here's the full list of titles that are available at launch:

  • Bloodborne
  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Zombie Chronicles Edition
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition

Sony has already been busying itself, ensuring that PS4 games are in the best shape possible to be played on PS5. Staple PS4 games like Until Dawn and The Last of Us Part 2 recently received patches that dramatically reduced their loading times

If this wasn't already great news for those upgrading to PS5, players of the 2018 God of War reboot and God of War III: Remastered will able to transfer their PS4 saves to PS5 – although be warned! This feature isn't guaranteed (opens in new tab) for every backwards compatible game.
