PlayStation Plus has been controversial since its inception, but it ha thankfully since levelled itself out with some great title additions to the service.

Adding the likes of Marvel's Spider-ManReturnal and Stray gave players the chance to experience brilliant new-gen games for the first time, as well as the opportunity to revisit some classics.

but it looks like Sony is rescinding the chance for players to play the PS4's best games.

PlayStation Plus Is Removing Its Best Games

PlayStation is quietly taking back one of the best perks of PlayStation Plus, and is stripping the service of some of its iconic titles.

The PlayStation Plus Collection is a roster of games that defined the PS4 era, both from PlayStation game studios and third-party studios. Although PlayStation is gearing up to take them away, you have a chance to grab them before they're gone.

The likes of God of WarBloodbornePersona 5 and more are set to be removed from the service on May 9, but until then, subscribers can claim the games before they're made unavailable.

It's a shame that PlayStation is removing the feature of the service without any fanfare, but at the very least, you can get in there and bag the games before you have to buy them if you want the chance to play them.

What Games Are Leaving PlayStation Plus?

PlayStation has revealed the full list of games leaving the service, and it's a roster of modern classics that will be immediately missed.

The list of games leaving on May 9 are God of War, Fallout 4, Mortal Kombat, Uncharted 4, Ratchet and Clank, Days Gone, Until Dawn, Detroit: Become Human, Battlefield 1, Infamous Second Son, Batman Arkham Knight, The Last Guardian, The Last of Us Remastered, Persona 5, Resident Evil 7, Bloodborne and Monster Hunter World.

It's an incredible shame that the games will leave the service, especially as PlayStation Plus remains controversial. Who knows - maybe this will lead to mass unsubscriptions.
