PlayStation Plus Essential Monthly Games Announced by Sony

All three titles will be accessible to all subscription tiers starting next week. Need for Speed Heat is the most well-known of the bunch. It’s the most recent edition (excluding remastered editions) in EA’s long-running racing franchise. The company had a rough time in the 2010s, but Need for Speed Heat brought back the pure arcade racing joy that the series was known for in its initial periods. Need for Speed Heat does not have a PS5 upgrade, but it is backwards compatible with the latest PlayStation console.

Developed by Arc System Works for PS4, Granblue Fantasy: Versus is a 2.5D fighting game. Granblue Fantasy: Versus has a diverse cast, each with its own style of fighting. There’s also an RPG mode with an all-new, original story. Fight waves of foes alone or with a friend in thrilling action-RPG combat. The single-player campaign isn’t particularly engaging, but the core fighting mechanics are fantastic.

Released the last year, Toem is an exclusive game in the bunch of the above games which is centred around the delights of photography. Toem is a good choice if you’re searching for a soothing game that won’t take up a lot of time. The gameplay focuses on puzzle solving by photographing the environment around you. The black-and-white graphics are lovely, and the gameplay is enhanced by a delightful musical score. This is the only title that is available on PS5 in the September lineup of free games.
