PlayStation Plus Collection details have been announced by Sony just ahead of the launch of PlayStation 5 (PS5). The service will offer PS5 owners access to a curated library of iconic PlayStation 4 (PS4) exclusives such as Bloodborne, God of War, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. It will also include popular third-party titles such as Batman: Arkham Knight, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, and Persona 5. The new service will be added as a benefit to existing PlayStation Plus members at no extra membership fee.
PlayStation said in a blog post that the PlayStation Plus Collection will be available starting November 12, when PS5 is launched in Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea, and the US.
