From April 2023, gamers who have subscribed to the Extra tier of PlayStation Plus will lose access to 10 games that were previously available.
Sony frequently updates the game offerings on its PS Plus service, with new titles added every month for its Extra and Premium subscribers.
In the latest update for March, several popular games like Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Rainbow Six Extraction, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Neo: The World Ends with You, and more were included. However, come April, only Extra tier subscribers will no longer have access to these games, while the titles will remain available to Premium tier subscribers.
In addition, PS Plus Extra tier members will also lose access to some games, as nine titles have already been confirmed to have been removed from the service in March 2023. Sony has released a list of 10 more games that will no longer be available on the PS Plus Extra tier starting in April 2023. It means that subscribers will no longer be able to play these titles.

The list of titles that will be removed includes 2Dark, 428: Shibuya Scramble, Croixleur Sigma, Gabbuchi, Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Steins; Gate Elite, The Caligula Effect: Overdose, The Wonderful 101: Remastered, and Zanki Zero: Last Beginning.
Sony has not provided specific details regarding when the games will be removed, but typically games are removed from the service midway through the month. Moreover, some of the games on the list will only be removed for PS Plus Extra members in Europe, while the others will be removed for all regions. Sony has revealed a list of 10 games that will no longer be available on the PS Plus Extra tier starting in April 2023.
A significant point to consider is that games that exit the PS Plus Extra and Premium libraries cannot be played anymore by members. Unlike free monthly titles, which can still be played by subscribers as long as they stay subscribed. The departure of The Wonderful 101: Remastered and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is anticipated to be the most significant loss among the 10 games set to leave the PS Plus Extra tier in April 2023. It will be intriguing to see which games Sony will choose to include in their place.
Sony has yet to unveil the free monthly titles for PS Plus in April 2023, but it is common for this information to leak ahead of the official announcement. However, Sony deviated from this norm in March when they announced Battlefield 2042, Code Vein, and Minecraft Dungeons during the February State of Play event.
Unsurprisingly, a popular game like Battlefield 2042 would attract a large audience when made available on PS Plus. It is especially true considering the large user base of the PlayStation platform. It is also worth noting that PS Plus members have access to free monthly games and enjoy other benefits, such as exclusive discounts on select titles, online multiplayer, and cloud storage for game saves.
The April 2023 PS Plus lineup has yet to be confirmed, but with the recent release of major games like Resident Evil Village and Deathloop, one of these titles could be added to the service. However, only time will tell what games Sony decides to include in their upcoming lineup.
Remember, while the free monthly games are a great perk of being a PS Plus member, they are not the only reason to subscribe. As mentioned earlier, PS Plus also offers discounts and other benefits that can add up to significant savings over time, especially for frequent gamers.
Additionally, with the PlayStation 5, Sony has started to include exclusive PS5 games in the PS Plus library, such as Destruction AllStars and Bugsnax. This trend will continue as more PS5 titles become available, making PS Plus an even more attractive subscription service for PlayStation users.
While PS Plus Extra users will be losing access to 10 games in April 2023, there is still much to look forward to with the possibility of adding new games to the service. Furthermore, the benefits of being a PS Plus member extend beyond the free monthly games, doing it a valuable service for any avid PlayStation gamer.
