PlayStation Days of Play includes bonus drop of 12 new PS Plus games

Ahead of the actual June PS Plus games lineup in a few weeks, Sony is blessing subscribers with some extras as part of its Days of Play event.

Sony’s big annual Days of Play promo has landed once again for PlayStation gamers, with loads of deals, incentives, and freebies being served up. This includes a spicy bonus drop of up to 12 PS Plus games for subscribers, depending on your tier, including new additions to the main PS Plus library, some fresh PSVR 2 titles, and even some more PS2 icons that are making their way to the Classics Catalog.

Let’s start with those additions to the main PS Plus games library for those on the Extra and Premium tiers, and for Rockstar fans, your emotional PS Plus rollercoaster continues. While Read Dead Redemption 2 was recently added to the service, fellow open-world game behemoth GTA 5 was revealed to be leaving soon. Now, as part of Days of Play, one of Rockstar’s best games ever, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, will be hitting the library. Well… the Definitive Edition remaster of San Andreas is, anyway.

While San Andreas is still an undisputed all-time classic, the lambasted Definitive Edition doesn’t enjoy the same reputation. The embarrassing tech issues it suffered at launch have since been rectified, but the remaster still isn’t to everyone’s taste due. Nevertheless, the beating heart of what makes the game so great still remains, so if you’re after a nostalgic playthrough (or its one that you’ve never got the chance to play), those on PS Plus have a great reason to pick it up.

San Andreas slides into the Extra and Premium library on June 7, but before then you’ll also see Dredge (May 29), Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 (May 31), and Cricket 24 (June 5) all get added as well. I’m particularly stoked to see spooky fishing sim Dredge sail onto the service, as it was one of my favorite titles of last year – I implore any PS Plus subscriber to play it.

For those on the Premium tier, this Days of Play event is looking even juicier. Following recent speculation that more properly-emulated PS2 games would be arriving for PS5 players, you’re getting three absolute bangers added to the Classics Catalog on June 11:

  • Tomb Raider Legend
  • Sly Cooper and Thievius Raccoonus
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Your access to some of the best PSVR 2 games is also expanding, with five new VR titles being added on June 6:

  • Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord
  • Walkabout Mini Golf
  • Synth Riders
  • Before Your Eyes
  • The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapters 1 & 2

Note that everything mentioned above is in addition to the actual June drop that Sony will announce in the next couple of weeks, which is pretty wild.

Sony also revealed the three free PS Plus games that are going to be available to claim in June. On June 4, subscribers on all tiers will be able to claim and keep:

  • SpongeBob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake
  • AEW Fight Forever
  • Streets of Rage 4

Oh, and we’ll echo the same reminder Sony gives in its announcement post: the previously-announced FC 24 is still available to claim as a freebie until June 18.

So, with a bunch of bonus content bolstering PS Plus’ offerings over the next few weeks, PlayStation fans are certainly eating well. I am surprised we haven’t heard any more about that rumored PlayStation showcase that was supposedly happening in May, but if that does suddenly materialize, it’ll be a truly mega time for PS4 and PS5 players. If you’re interested, check out our 20 predictions for games we think you’ll see if that showcase does appear.

Also, make sure you’re checking out the Days of Play event’s brand new sale, which is knocking money off of some of the best PS5 games, such as Spider-Man 2 and Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, for the very first time.
