PS Plus Extra September line-up includes NieR and Star Ocean says leak

At least six games have already leaked for this month’s PS Plus Extra catalogue, with the full line-up coming this week.

It’s been less than a week since Sony bumped up prices on PlayStation Plus. Not across the board, but 12-month subscriptions across all three tiers are notably more expensive than they were before.

The initial announcement came alongside the September line-up of free downloadable games but considering the headliner was last year’s Saints Row reboot, it didn’t exactly offset the price hike.

Sony hasn’t detailed which games will be added to the PS Plus Extra catalogue this month, though, and like clockwork, a good chunk of them have managed to leak online prior to a formal announcement.

The source is, of course, billbil-kun from Dealabs, who has consistently and accurately leaked new PS Plus additions for years now. So, you can safely assume the listed games will indeed be made free for PS Plus Extra and Premium subscribers.

While billbil-kun names six games in total, they say that there are more that they don’t know about yet. However, they stress that these are the headliners so don’t go expecting anything more prestigious to be revealed by Sony.

Based on the first two games, it looks as if September will be a good month for role-playing game fans as the catalogue is getting remaster NieR Replicant and Star Ocean: The Divine Force… though we can only recommend the former.

After that is a pair of strategy games: VanillaWare’s intriguing 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and Firaxis Games’ strategy classic Civilization 6. Both are very good and nicely different too, so you’re getting a good diversity of genres.

The final two are tactical shooter Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 (easily the weakest link of the bunch) and much loved indie puzzle game Unpacking.

Although billbil-kun doesn’t mention any retro games for the Premium tier, considering Sony’s track record on that front, it’ll probably be another underwhelming batch… if any are included at all.

They also add that a proper announcement from Sony will arrive this Wednesday on September 13.
