PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers should know that two games are scheduled to be removed from the service later this month.
Sony has completely overhauled the PlayStation Plus subscription service, merging it with PlayStation Now to create three new levels. There’s PS Plus Essential, which is PS Plus as ever, and there’s PS Plus Extra and Premium. PS Plus Extra offers all the benefits of a regular subscription, in addition to the games available through PlayStation Now, while PS Plus Premium lets you choose from a selection of older games.
The PS Plus Extra game offers work differently from the free PS Plus games that subscribers get each month. Like PlayStation Now, PS Plus Extra games are available on a rolling basis and subscribers cannot claim them to keep in their collection. For this reason, two PS Plus Extra games will be leaving this month.
Shadow Warrior 3 PS Plus Extra will be leaving on July 5. Shadow Warrior 3 is a first-person shooter, and the latest installment in the popular Shadow Warrior series. Shadow Warrior 3 was a PlayStation Now game on day one, and it looks like Sony is using it to test how it can best compete with Xbox Game Pass. Of course, this happened before the PS Plus renewal.
Leaving the July 2022 list of additional PS Plus games
- Shadow Warrior 3 – 5 July
- Siberia – 19 July
Shadow Warrior 3 isn’t the only game that will be leaving the PS Plus Extra in July 2022. Syberia has also been removed, with the cancellation date currently set for July 19. Syberia is an adventure game series that has received mostly positive reviews, so anyone interested in the genre should definitely check it out while it’s still available. PlayStation Plus subscribers will still have time to finish the game before it is removed from PS Plus Extra on July 19.
Shadow Warrior 3 and Syberia are the only two games that left PS Plus Extra in July, but more removals are looming. While it looks like PS Plus Extra subscribers won’t have to worry about removing the vast majority of PS Plus Extra games anytime soon, the Red Dead Redemption series will be removed by the end of the year. Red Dead Redemption 2 will be removed on September 20, while the original Red Dead Redemption and the popular standalone expansion Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare will be removed on October 17.
