The only video game you should be playing on PlayStation Plus

New PlayStation Plus Subscription Service has hundreds of games to choose from, so finding a game to play can be a bit daunting. Fortunately, Sony is bringing one of Sega’s oldest franchises, including one of the best Xbox series launch games that were available on Xbox Game Pass.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon, a spin-off from the Yakuza series, is coming to PS Plus on August 1. Ichiban Kasuga is a low-level member of a yakuza family who is sent to prison. When he finally gets out, he goes on an adventure to get back on his feet and find out why he was betrayed by his yakuza family. It’s a turn-based RPG filled with wacky characters. It was one of the best games of 2020.

For those who have no idea about the Yakuza series, luckily the the entire series will also make its way to PS Plus although it depends on the subscription level you belong to. Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6: Song of Life are available on the Extra ($15 per month) and Premium ($18 per month) tiers. Older games in the series – Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4 Remastered, and Yakuza 5 Remastered – are only available at the Premium tier.

In addition to the Yakuza franchise, here are some of the the most notable PlayStation Plus inclusions to date:

There are a few notable games on this list, but it also lacks the blockbuster Day 1 vibe of Xbox Game Pass, which has big debuts like Halo Infinite. Additional fees $15 per month, $40 for three months or $100 for one year. (In the UK it’s £11, £32 or £84 respectively, and in Australia it’s AU$19, AU$55 or AU$135.)

PlayStation Plus: choosing the best level


The more expensive Premium tier ($18 or £13.49 per month) also includes download and streaming access to around 500 older games, mostly from pre-PS4 consoles, most of which will run at 60 frames per month. second. It also includes access to game demos. You can try games like Horizon: Forbidden West, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and Hot Wheels Unleashed. (Note: In Australia, the Premium tier is called Deluxe and costs AU$22 per month.)

One of the best things about the new PS Plus is that there are plenty of cult and indie favorites in the Extra/Premium tier.

Here are my older or lesser-known picks so far:

  • Disaster Report 4: Memories of Summer
  • XCOM 2
  • Greed
  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker
  • pillars of eternity
  • Tetris effect
  • Outer Wildlands

A strange but interesting thing that I noticed is that there is a plot of Warhammer games included. I know next to nothing about Warhammer lore, but I appreciate that it’s so deep and expansive. And I enjoyed games like Inquisitor (like a sci-fi Diablo) and the recent Chaos Gate (like XCOM with space marines). If you’re interested, the PS Plus list includes:

  • Chaosbane
  • Space Hulk: Deathwing
  • Inquisitor
  • Necromunda: Underhive Wars
  • Space Hulk Tactics

I’ll update this list as new games are added and my colleagues remind me of top-tier classics I’ve missed.
