Sony: 99% of PS4 Games Can Be Played on PS5, PS Plus Collection Includes Games That ‘Defined the Generation’

Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO and President Jim Ryan has confirmed in an interview with The Washington Post that the PlayStation 5 will be backward compatible with “99 percent” of the PlayStation 4’s library.

Those who pick up the PS5 at launch and have a PlayStation Plus membership will gain instant access to a new add-on called The PlayStation Plus Collection, which includes PS4 games that “defined the generation.”

The following titles will be available via the PS Plus Collection at launch:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Bloodborne
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • God of War
  • inFAMOUS: Second Son
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 5
  • Ratchet & Clank
  • Resident Evil 7: biohazard
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  • Until Dawn

“The PS Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PS Plus members receive for a single subscription price,” confirmed Sony. The company added that the PS Plus Collection titles may vary by region, and the add-on will not be available in China.

The PS5 will launch on November 12th in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, and a week later on November 19th in the rest of the world. However, the latter doesn’t include China. Sony has said that PS5’s launch in China is “still under exploration and will be announced at a later date.”
