The September PS Plus free games for the essential tier will be announced this week and will contain titles playable on PS4 and PS5 consoles.
The information will be shared directly by Sony and will cover all news from the company’s cheapest subscription tier.
And even before that happens, fans have a chance to find things out early via the usual leaks that surface from sources like Dealabs ahead of the big announcement.
Fans have already spotted a build they think could be included in next month’s free selection, but they’ll have to wait for Sony to officially confirm its plans later this month.
September 2022 PS Plus Free Games Reveal Time
The September 2022 Essential Tier PS Plus free games will be revealed by Sony on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 at 8:30 a.m. PDT / 11:30 a.m. EDT / 4:30 a.m. BST.
The tech giant will announce the next three titles that will be added to its essential tier, with the possibility of a few surprises as well.
Following Wednesday’s reveal, another announcement will be made that will only affect fans who have PlayStation Plus Premium. It’s the most expensive tier of Sony’s revamped subscription plan, which has merged with PlayStation Now and is updated monthly to include new titles for its download library. However, as new games arrive and some will leave the service as well, these reveals won’t happen until mid-September.
Are there any confirmed Playstation Plus games?
No leaks have surfaced yet that confirmed what’s coming to PlayStation Plus in September. However, fans have spotted a few releases that line up nicely with the release of the new games. Sony’s PlayStation Blog post for August 2022 confirms that the release date for the next batch of freebies is September 6.
And that’s also when The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition launches on the PlayStation Store. Couple that with the fact that you can’t pre-order the game, and there’s a chance it’ll be announced as part of PS Plus in September. Biomutant is another possibility as it has the same release date as The Tomorrow Children, but it seems less likely.
What is PlayStation Plus Premium and how much does it cost?
Sony’s most expensive subscription tier includes everything currently available as part of the service, including free monthly games, exclusive discounts, Plus Collection, Share Play and online multiplayer from Essential, plus the free express shipping directly from PlayStation, Game Catalog, Ubisoft+ Classics, Classics Catalog, Game Trials and Cloud streaming. The current pricing is as follows:
United States: $17.99 per month / $49.99 per quarter / $119.99 per year.
Europe: €16.99 per month / €49.99 per quarter / €119.99 per year.
UK: £13.49 per month / £39.99 per term / £99.99 per year.
Japan: ¥1,550 – monthly / ¥4,300 – quarterly / ¥10,250 annually.
