On May 9, Sony is ending the PlayStation Plus Collection, which previously provided PS5 users with a massive, instant collection of backwards compatible PS4 games.

Introduced at the PS5 launch, the PS Plus Collection initially offered subscribers 20 games to download from a pool of the PS4's best, ranging from Bloodborne to Fallout 4. While it initially seemed this would be a limited-time promotion, it's now been in place for over two years, and only one game - Persona 5 - has been removed from the collection in that time.

As with the traditional PS Plus games (now part of the PS Plus Essential monthly lineup) anything you claim from the Collection will remain as part of your library as long as you're a subscriber. That means that you can still add these games to your library until the Collection is shut down on May 9. And you should! These are some of the best PS4 games available. The only catch is that they can only be claimed directly from a PS5 console.

Here's the full list of 19 games currently in the PS Plus Collection.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Bloodborne
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy 15
  • God of War
  • Infamous Second Son
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Monster Hunter World
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Resident Evil 7
  • Until Dawn
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

Many of these games remain available in the Game Catalog available in the higher PS Plus tiers, though not all of them. The Last of Us Remastered and a few third-party titles are not part of the service.
