UPDATE:  Following a leak that claimed the PS Plus February games would include the likes of Horizon Forbidden West, Resident Evil 7, Borderlands 3, and more - PlayStation has now revealed that those games are in fact coming to the subscription service next week. 

As confirmed via the PlayStation blog, PS Plus subscribers will soon be able to download the recently released Horizon Zero Dawn sequel Horizon Forbidden West, as well as two horror games, Resident Evil 7 and The Quarry. That's not all though as PlayStation is also giving away Outriders, Scarlet Nexus, Borderlands 3, and Tekken 7 - not to mention a series of others also mentioned in the blog post. 

You can read our original story of the PS Plus February games leak below. 

ORIGINAL: Horizon Forbidden West and other gems will reportedly arrive on the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog later this month in February.

That's according to reliable and long-standing leaker billbil-kun, posting on their personal Twitter account earlier today, February 15. According to the leaker, bangers like Horizon Forbidden West, Resident Evil 7, Scarlet Nexus, and Borderlands 3 will all be made available for PS Plus subscribers later this month on February 21.

In other words, anyone subscribed to the PS Plus subscription service may be able to download the four aforementioned titles next week, if this leak is legitimate. It's worth noting that billbil-kun has a staggeringly accurate history of leaking information relating to the PS Plus service, extending as far back as August 2022 for months on end.

All things considered, it's a seriously stacked line-up for PS Plus users. Horizon Forbidden West is an excellent sequel which sees Aloy venturing to far untamed lands in what used to be California, while Resident Evil 7 is one of the best horror games of recent memory, single-handedly rescuing and rebooting the Resident Evil franchise at large after the sixth mainline entry.

Don't overlook Scarlet Nexus, though. The action-RPG from yesteryear is an absolutely stellar game from Bandai Namco, taking place in the far future where elite groups of soldiers are dispatched to save the world from an encroaching monster threat. The twists and turns of this one bring to mind Square Enix's amazing Nier Automata.

Finally, Borderlands 3 rounds out the group of four as another ace action-RPG, bringing together Gearbox's penchant for mayhem and destruction with a truckload of creative weapons and enemies to shoot them with. All four games in this month's PS Plus Game Catalog additions could all be considered bangers for various reasons. 

Considering January 2023's PS Plus games including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Fallout 76, and Axiom Verge 2, it's been a great start to the year for the service.
