PlayStation Plus is a monthly subscription service for a variety of PlayStation console stuff, including online multiplayer, that gives you access to a plethora of “free” games every month for as long as you’re subscribed. Coming in three tiers—Essential, Extra, and Premium—PS Plus unlocks the true power of PlayStation, letting you play a catalog of PS4, PS3, PS2, PSP, and OG PS games depending on your subscription. Similar to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, each month’s “free” game offering is different and while we usually have to wait until Sony officially announces what games you can download, it appears the line-up has already leaked. And now that Sony has confirmed the rumor, February’s roster is stacked.

Horizon Forbidden West Leads The PS Plus Pack

According to French leaker billbil-kun, who has a history of posting accurate PS Plus rumors since at least September 2021, some heavy hitters will become available on the subscription service on February 21. Guerrilla Games’ critically acclaimed 2022 open-world sci-fi RPG Horizon Forbidden West leads the pack here. Seeing as this lauded sequel came out almost a year ago to the day, Forbidden West is evidently the one snatching all the headlines. But that’s not the only game you’ll get to download on PlayStation this month.

As billbil-kun tweeted on February 15, joining Forbidden West is Bandai Namco Studios’ anime action RPG Scarlet Nexus, Capcom’s first-person survival horror game Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Gearbox Software’s FPS looter-shooter Borderlands 3, and “more to come.” On the official PlayStation Blog, Sony revealed that the “more to come” includes a smattering of other games like Bandai Namco Studios’ 3D brawler Tekken 7, People Can Fly’s looter-shooter Outriders, and Supermassive Games’ interactive drama horror game The Quarry, among others. All of these games are available for $15 Extra and $18 Premium subscription tiers.

Kotaku reached out to billbil-kun and Sony for comment.

Anyway, for clarity purposes, here’s the PlayStation Plus list bulleted out:
