Best games on PS Plus: Ghostwire Tokyo, Untitled Goose Game and more
March continues to be a great month for PlayStation Plus. Developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks, the game is one of the big titles coming to the PlayStation subscription service on Tuesday and at Xbox Game Pass in April.
Other major games coming to PS Plus on Tuesday are the quirky Untitled Goose Game, Street Fighter V Champion Edition, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, and Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection. For those who love retro games, PS Plus Premium subscribers (as opposed to Subscribers at Essential and Extra levels) have access to three classic games: Ridge Racer Type 4, Ape Academy 2 and Siphon Filter: Dark Mirror.
Here are some notable PlayStation Plus inclusions so far:
There are a few notable games on this list, but it also lacks the blockbuster Day 1 vibe of Xbox Game Passwhich has big debuts like Halo Infinite. Additional fees $15 per month, $40 for three months or $100 for one year. (In the UK it’s £11, £32 or £84 respectively, and in Australia it’s AU$19, AU$55 or AU$135.)
The more expensive Premium tier ($18 or £13.49 per month) also includes download and streaming access to around 500 older games, mostly from pre-PS4 consoles, most of which will run at 60 frames per month. second. It also includes access to game demos. You can try games like Horizon: Forbidden West, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and Hot Wheels Unleashed. (Note: in Australia, the Premium tier is called Deluxe and costs AU$22 per month.)
One of the best things about the new PS Plus is that there are plenty of cult and indie favorites in the Extra/Premium tier.
Here are some older or lesser-known choices to date:
- Disaster Report 4: Memories of Summer
- XCOM 2
- Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
- Pathfinder: Kingmaker
- pillars of eternity

A strange but interesting thing that I noticed is that there is a plot of Warhammer games included. I know next to nothing about Warhammer lore, but I appreciate that it’s so deep and expansive. And I enjoyed games like Inquisitor (like a sci-fi Diablo) and the recent Chaos Gate (like XCOM with space marines). If you’re interested, the PS Plus list includes:
- Space Hulk: Deathwing
- Necromunda: Underhive Wars
- Space Hulk Tactics
I’ll update this list as new games are added and my colleagues remind me of top-tier classics I’ve missed.
