Sony has announced the lineup of games that will be added to PlayStation Plus Premium and PlayStation Plus Extra subscriptions on September 19. The selection is particularly exciting for fans of Japanese RPGs, as titles like NieR Replicant, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, and several Star Ocean games will be included.
The addition of five games from Square Enix’s Star Ocean series is a notable highlight, especially for gamers looking to get ready for the launch of Star Ocean: The Second Story R in November. Alongside these RPG offerings, PlayStation Plus subscribers can expect other notable titles like Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, and Unpacking.
However, the September lineup will also see the departure of Deathloop, which was previously exclusive to the PS5. Despite being released after Microsoft’s acquisition of publisher ZeniMax Media, Deathloop will now only be available on Xbox Game Pass. This departure emphasizes the growing competition among subscription services and the importance of securing exclusive titles.
In summary, PlayStation Plus subscribers can anticipate an exciting month ahead with a strong focus on RPGs. While gaining titles like NieR Replicant and the Star Ocean series, they will bid farewell to Deathloop. These additions and removals will take effect on September 19 for both PS4 and PS5 users.
