The global tech and consumer electronics company, Sony, revealed its plans for expanding the PlayStation Plus service, with Ubisoft also bringing some popular, older titles to the platform.
PlayStation Plus will switch to a three-tier system later this month for users based in Asia and in June for those based in the US and EU. The system replaces Sony’s PlayStation Now streaming service but retains its core experience. The foremost tier within the system is called ‘Essential’ and features everything the same as Plus now, incorporating online multiplayer and free games every month.
However, the ‘Extra’ and ‘Deluxe’ tiers are the ones to catch the interest of PSVR owners specifically. These categories bring a more expansive catalog of PS4 and PS5 games to the platform. From Sony’s end, games with optional VR modes, such as Concrete Genie and Wipeout Omega Collection, are included in the collection. But, its PSVR-exclusive titles like Blood & Truth or Astro Bot Rescue Mission do not feature in the line-up yet.
Nevertheless, the leading video game company, Ubisoft, also confirmed that it was bringing some of its older titles to this line-up. The list includes VR-exclusive games, such as Eagle Flight, Werewolves Within, and Space Junkies, and VR optional titles, such as Transference, Trackmania Turbo, and Star Trek: Bridge Crew.
This is not a rather comprehensive collection of games for VR users, but the company had never confirmed the inclusion of PSVR games as part of the new Plus line-up. So, it’s a bonus for PSVR owners. However, it would be interesting to see the company’s strategy evolve around this content with the launch of the PSVR 2 headset, slated for a Q1 2023 release.
