Today marks the day that PS Plus updates its catalog with one of the best PlayStation 5 games on the market right now. If you’re familiar with Sony’s game subscription deal, you’ll know that PS Plus cycles great first and third-party games in and out of their catalog for subscribers to freely enjoy on a fairly regular monthly basis.
As great as PS Plus is, the games you get to enjoy on it aren’t technically free since you have to pay one of the three tiers of subscription fees which provide access to different levels of available games. Nevertheless, if you want to find out what game you just got free access to if you are a PS Plus Extra subscriber, read on!
New PS Plus Extra game makes it all worth it
If you are subscribed to PS Plus Extra, which costs $14.99 for one month, $39.99 for three months, and $99.99 for 12 months, you can jump into the PS Plus catalog today and enjoy Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart! While there haven’t been many standalone PlayStation 5 games to come out (even though the PlayStation 5 is nearly two and a half years old), one of the best PlayStation 5 games available is Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart.
Whether you have history with Insomniac Games’ Ratchet and Clank franchise or are brand new to it, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is one of, if not the best, game in the series and shines as the best representation of what the PlayStation 5 is capable of — breathtaking graphics, responsive gameplay, lightning-fast load times, and tactile immersion thanks to the DualSense.
Remember: if you are subscribed to PS Plus Essentials, you won’t be able to play Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart for free from PS Plus. Only PS Extra and PS Premium subscribers get to download and enjoy Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart starting today. And act fast because we never know when Sony will decide to remove select games from the PS Plus catalog.
Other honorable PS Plus mentions
If you’re not too jazzed about getting Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (which you should be, it’s really amazing), you can look forward to enjoying Humanity, a day-one release that combines puzzle-solving and action-platforming into a very unique experience, and Dishonored 2 which is one of my favorite games of all time.
Based on these titles alone, PS Plus Extra is worth at least a one month subscription right now to experience Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. And if you’re not stoked about that, check out Humanity and/or Dishonored 2. If you don’t have a Nintendo Switch to enjoy The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom right now, no worries! The PS Plus catalog is stacked right now, so I highly recommend getting a PS Plus Extra subscription and playing some amazing games.
