If you were hoping to escape your backlog by grabbing yourself a PS5, we have some bad news. Well actually, it’s pretty good news, especially if you’re completely new to the PlayStation family or missed out on some of those gems from the PS4 library.
Anyone with an active PlayStation Plus subscription will be able to access a top flight collection of PlayStation 4 titles, downloaded directly to your PS5. As these games are backwards compatible, you can play them on your shiny new console. Accessing them is as simple as finding the PS+ section on your home menu.
There’s an additional sweetener for those hanging onto their old PS4, maybe as a machine for your kids. Once these games have been added to your account, you can then go back to the PS4 and play them there as well!
There’s a terrific mix of Sony first party titles here as well as third party additions from publishers such as EA, Activision, Warner Bros., and Square Enix. Needless to say, there’s plenty to keep your thumbs busy while you wait for more PS5 games to launch in the coming months.
We’ve created a handy table below, listing all of the games currently confirmed for the PlayStation Plus Collection. Sony haven’t said when they’ll be expanding this list or if games will be removed over time, but some are being updated with PS5 enhancements. Days Gone now runs at 60 FPS on the new machine.
You may have seen online that The Last Guardian runs in 60 FPS too though this applies only to the unpatched disc version which doesn’t have a framerate cap.
