The PS Plus catalog is full, but…
Three months passed between the revelation of the new formulas and their arrival in our French regions and, more broadly, in Europe. Moreover, yesterday, the players were able to discover some surprises for the launch since in the end, Sony and PlayStation have enhanced their catalog a much larger number of games and even planned the blow when the options of certain games from of the first consoles of the Japanese brand.
We get it, Sony and PlayStation are delighted from the game portfolio they have to offer players, and they have made it known with a commercial full of references to certain titles that can be found in the various offers. Unfortunately, behind this beautiful spectacle hides a much more bitter reality for players who, in the coming months, will have to mourn a handful of big games from the catalog that have caught their eye so much!

By browsing through the different sections of the PlayStation Plus program, some users have noticed the existence of a category called “Last chance to play”. Quickly, this mention alerted them, and rightly so, since the rich catalog of PlayStation Plus will soon record its first starts. The first of these will be Shadow Warrior 3 whose inclusion in the Extra program will expire on the night of July 3-4, and the second will be the PS3 version of Syberia which will leave the Premium formula as of July 19!
But the departures do not stop there, unfortunately! If some do not appear in this famous category, this does not prevent them from having already planned their escape from the PS Plus Extra and Premium. Thus, there are five other games in the same scenario, including the acclaimed Red Dead Redemption II is part: hoping that these few weeks allow you to play it to the end ! To find out about the other four, we invite you to take a look at the list below:
