PlayStation Plus subscribers recently learned of 11 free PS4 and PS5 games available on the subscription service this month, but it turns out gamers are getting one less game than expected. It seems the game was mistakenly included in January’s PS Plus freebies and has since been pulled. That still leaves plenty of games for PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium subscribers to try, but it’s an unusual situation seeing as how games aren’t often pulled from the service before they can even be added to PS Plus games in the catalog.
The game, which is no longer free-to-play for PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium subscribers, is Sayonara Wild Hearts, a music-based, multi-platform game that was first released in 2019. A representative of the match team confirmed after the announcement. PS Plus announced that the game will not be coming to the PS Plus service after all.
It’s a PS4 game, but it’s been on pretty much everything, including mobile platforms as an Apple Arcade title. It’s got a score of 82 for the PlayStation version on Metacritic and has its own following, so those who’ve heard positive things about it will be disappointed to hear about its absence from this month’s PS Plus lineup. It’s only $12.99 if you want to buy it that way, but that’s the only way you’ll get it on PlayStation, given that it won’t be in the PS Plus catalog.
But even without Sayonara Wild Hearts included in January’s PS Plus games, there are still plenty more to choose from. The rest of the PS Plus Extra games contain a mix of multiplayer and standalone titles Back 4 Blood, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Devil May Cry 5. Special Edition, Life is Strange. Before the Storm, Life is Strange, Jett. The Far Shore, Just Cause 4. Reloaded, Just Cause 4, Omno and Erica. There are also free PS Plus Essential games available to all subscribers this month, which should keep people busy for a while too.
