In April, Sony traditionally updates the contents of its PlayStation Plus storage – a dozen good additions will appear in the catalog, in particular Dishonored and Doom Eternal, and at the same time several games will disappear, including Marvel’s Spider-Man.
PlayStation Plus is a subscription service from Sony that gives you access to a wide range of games for a monthly fee. There are three different subscription tiers – Essential for $10, Extra for $15, and Premium for $18. The catalog is updated every month, and the April expansion will include titles such as Kena: Bridge of Spirits, the aforementioned Dishonored and Doom Eternal, Riders Republic and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, in addition to the monthly PS Plus base offerings.
In small print in the Sony publication, there is a list of games that will disappear from storage starting May 15th. Marvel’s Spider-Man, NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 and Resident Evil are some of them. For a full list of games that may be removed soon, visit the Last Chance to Play section of the PlayStation Plus page.
As a reminder, PS Plus base tier subscribers only get access to the monthly games, while those who pay for any other tier also get access to the PlayStation game catalog of up to 400 titles.
This Sony practice doesn’t bode well for PlayStation fans, especially when compared to Xbox Game Pass – which tends to add and keep first games in its vault forever (like Halo Infinite, Minecraft and Bethesda’s most popular titles).
In March 2022, Sony’s CEO stated that adding the publisher’s own titles to the PS Plus game catalog would reduce the quality of core PlayStation games. Meanwhile, Xbox admitted that Game Pass was losing money to the company.
