september’s playstation plus line-up is looking great

September’s PlayStation Plus games are on the way, though which you’ll get depends on whether you’re on PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra or Premium.

At least, that’s the theory. Last month was a bit of a let down for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers, since Sony added precisely zero new titles to their classics library. The good news is that, this month, Premium subscribers are getting a handful of new PS3 and PSP titles this September, whether it makes up for last month’s omission is a matter of opinion.

So what’s on offer? First of all, everyone gets access to the Essentials titles and, provided you claim them this month, even if you abort the download, you can redownload them any time you have at least a PlayStation Plus Essentials subscription. But you’ve only got till October 3rd to claim them.

September 2022’s Essential games, available from September 6th, are:

  • Need for Speed Heat (PS4)
  • Granblue Fantasy: Versus (PS4)
  • Toem (PS5)

Toem is by far the quirkiest, but all are worth your time. As for PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers, these games are joining the Extra library and they’re not leaving any time soon.

September 2022’s new Extra games, available from Sept 20th, are:

  • Deathloop (PS5)
  • Assassin’s Creed Origins (PS4)
  • Watch Dogs 2 (PS4)
  • Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (PS4)
  • Spiritfarer: Farewell Edition (PS4)
  • Chicory: A Colorful Tale (PS4)
  • Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 5 (PS4, PS5)
  • Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX (PS4, PS5)
  • Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show (PS4)
  • Rayman Legends (PS4)
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition (PS4)

We haven’t tackled every one of these title – you can click through to see our reviews for each – but there are so many fantastic titles that it’s hard to pick a favourite. Spiritfarer: Farewell Edition is a wonderfully heart-tugging outing but if that’s not your thing you can always murder your way through Egypt in Assassin’s Creed Origins. In short, there’s something for everyone.

Finally, here are September’s Premium games, available from Sept 20th. Premium subscribers get access to Extra and Essential titles as well.

The Sly Collection (PS3), Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PS3), Bentley’s Hackpack (PS3), Toy Story 3 (PSP), Kingdom of Paradise (PSP). The first three titles all tie in to the Sly Cooper franchise.

You may have noticed that Sony is announcing the Premium and Extra titles at the beginning of the month, whereas usually they’re unveiled around the middle of the month, sometimes a little earlier, sometimes a little later.

You can’t play them until Sept 20th, so sharing them seems odd, for Sony at least. Sony hasn’t given a reason for this decision but, given that the line-up has been consistently leaked for the past few months, they may be trying to get ahead of the game. We’ll have to wait till next month to find out if this is Sony’s new schedule.

In the meantime, don’t forget you’ve got until September 5th to pick up last month’s PlayStation Plus Essential titles.
