new PlayStation Plus games lineup

Sony has now unveiled the new PlayStation Plus games lineup. Set to launch this summer, Sony has finally decided to revamp its monthly subscription service to combine it with PS Now, putting it more or less on the same page with what Xbox gamers have been enjoying for years now with what is known as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The new PlayStation Plus games will include big-time hits from Ubisoft, Insomniac, FromSoftware, Housemarque, Naughty Dog, and much more. Head below the fold for a complete look at the launch titles for the new PlayStation Plus ahead of launch next month. 

New PlayStation Plus games lineup unveiled

As a reminder, the new PlayStation Plus is a three-tier system with the point of entry essentially including everything PlayStation Plus comes with now at the same price – you can get a better idea of the higher-tier options right here. But for now, let’s jump into the new PlayStation Plus games lineup; so far it’s looking pretty good if you ask me.
