On the forums most frequented by video game enthusiasts, reports of long-term PS Plus users who are no longer able to access games on PS4 or PlayStation 5 that, like Greedfall, were redeemed before the current transition to the model based on the Essential tiers, are multiplying , Extras and Premiums.
In one of the ‘hottest’ discussions taking place on Reddit, for example, a user who has been a PS Plus subscriber for several years highlights the problem that occurred to those who, after redeeming a ‘free’ copy of Greedfall, can no longer access it since the transition to the new subscription model adopted by Sony in recent months.
According to what is claimed by this redditor, the problem in question would be due to the system adopted by the Japanese technological giant to assign (or revoke) each player the licenses for titles that are redeemed via PlayStation Plus. The video games downloaded or enjoyed ‘free’ through the new PS Plus based on the Essential, Extra and Premium tiers would consequently be distributed through licenses (or virtual keys) different from those previously obtained through the monthly Instant Game Collection, even by redeeming the same game.
The problem reported by the community, therefore, would not be limited only to the Greedfall license or the ‘old’ games of the Instant Game Collection but would also affect the video games that have passed through the catalog of the now discontinued PlayStation Now. The only solution to the problem that is recommended by the Redditor Watchmann1204 is therefore that of contact PlayStation Official Support to request the reinstatement of the license of a game redeemed with the old PS Plus but which have been removed from the Extra or Premium catalog of the new Sony subscription service.
