PS Plus Collection Can Be Played On PS4 After Claiming On PS5
The PlayStation 4 collection can be played through a PS4, too--but you need to log into a PS5 first.
The PlayStation 5 is now available in many regions, and new users will likely be jumping into the PlayStation Plus section of the console's store to nab the PlayStation Plus Collection. The Collection includes numerous PS4 games that you can play on PS5--and, as it turns out, on PS4, too.
GameSpot can confirm, after conducting tests, that once the Collection has been claimed on a PlayStation 5 the games can be played on a PS4. That means that you'll still need to get your hands on a PS5 to access the Collection, but if you've kept your PS4 you can install the games on there afterwards.
If you want to free up some space on the PS5's limited SSD, or set up your PS4 in another room of your home, this could be very handy indeed.
Here's the complete list of games included in the PlayStation Plus Collection:
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Battlefield 1
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Zombie's Chronicles Edition
- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Days Gone
- Detroit: Become Human
- Fallout 4
- Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition
- God of War
- Infamous Second Son
- Monster Hunter World
- Mortal Kombat X
- Persona 5
- Ratchet and Clank
- Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
- The Last Guardian
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
- Until Dawn
PS5 owners will also be treated to a copy of Bugsnax through PlayStation Plus--however, you do not need to own the console yet to claim it. Add it to your library now and it'll be waiting for you if and when you upgrade. Astro's Playroom is also available to all PS5 players.
