Since the PlayStation 5 (PS5) launched, Sony has been making up for its lack of a Game Pass equivalent with the PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) Collection and its monthly PS Plus games, and next month might be its best yet. From Tuesday, the 2nd of February, Australian PS5 owners will get three games in total, with PlayStation 4 (PS4) owners getting access to two of those. Destruction AllStars, a PS5 exclusive originally slated for launch, will debut as a PS Plus game, Control: Ultimate Edition will be available for both PS5 and PS4, while the Sony exclusive indie Concrete Genie will be available for PS4 and PS5 via backwards compatibility.

Destruction AllStars (PS5)

One of the games previewed during the PlayStation 5 showcase, Destruction AllStars will finally make its debut as a PS Plus exclusive. Getting bonus games every month as a PS Plus subscriber is good, but getting a brand-new game is great.

The game itself looks like a chaotic mix of Twisted Metal and Rocket League (another PS Plus exclusive on release) and we can’t wait to check it out. It features both single and online multiplayer modes, as well as a few neat PS5 enhancements to make the most of that shiny new console, like haptic feedback, and unique adaptive trigger feedback for all 28 vehicles.

Control: Ultimate Edition (PS5 and PS4)

The Control you know and love with all the DLC trimmings included and next-gen bells and whistles for PS5 users. Control’s performance was a bit patchy on PS4 at launch, so we’re looking forward to seeing what the upgraded version looks like on PS5.

Concrete Genie (PS4 and PS5 via backward compatibility)

A lot of people slept on the PlayStation exclusive indie Concrete Genie when it first released and it’s not entirely surprising. Its October 2019 release date wedged it between The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Untitled Goose Game, The Outer Worlds and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. So fair to say, everyone had a full plate. It’s a short, roughly five-hour third-person adventure where a young, bullied artist whose artistic endeavours bring a cadre of cutesy monsters to life.
