September’s PlayStation Plus Essential Games Have Been Revealed

Three different open worlds.

Although the headline act already leaked early, and we just found out that the cost of a subscription is being increased significantly in the next week, PlayStation has revealed the lineup of the three new games being offered to PlayStation Plus Essential subscribers and above in the month of September.

It’s a bit of a mixed bag this month but both Saints Row and Generation Zero have come quite a way since their respective launches and are worth giving a go while they’re being offered. These games will become available starting Tuesday, September 5th, meaning subscribers have until then to ensure they’ve redeemed the current trio of PGA Tour 2K23, Dreams and Death’s Door.


Saints Row

Experience the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created. The unique sprawling world of Santo Ileso is the backdrop for a wild, larger than life sandbox of thrilling side hustles, criminal ventures and blockbuster missions, as you shoot, drive and wingsuit your way to the top. Take over the city block by block, wage war against enemy factions and tighten your grip on the streets. Play online with a friend at any time, via fully untethered drop-in / drop out co-op, skipping the need to take either of you out of the outlandish action.
