Update: Just hours before the PS Plus Essential lineup for February 2023 is set to be confirmed, it looks like Destiny 2: Beyond Light is definitely going to be included. The PS Stars scheme on the PlayStation mobile app has just been updated, and one of the goals is to play Destiny 2: Beyond Light as part of PS Plus. So that’s that.
We’re still waiting on confirmation of the other leaked games, though. Again, the official announcement will be coming later today, so stay tuned.
Original Story: The monthly PS Plus Essential games for February 2023 have leaked ahead of next week’s official reveal. As per usual, the information comes from the ever-reliable @billbil_kun, who has been posting early PS Plus lineups for years now.
These are the PS5 and PS4 titles that subscribers can apparently look forward to:
The leaker does mention that Mafia: Definitive Edition may be a bonus addition, or possibly a replacement for another game in some regions. As such, we’ll have to wait for the official announcement to know for sure.
But other than that, this looks like a fairly solid selection. OlliOlli World is a highly rated indie release from last year, and Evil Dead: The Game offers up some groovy multiplayer fun.
Meanwhile, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a rather impressive remake of what some would consider a bit of a classic, and Destiny 2: Beyond Light is a well received 2020 expansion for Bungie’s popular shooter (not to be confused with Destiny 2: Lightfall, which releases next month). We assume, by the way, that because Destiny 2’s base game is free, this is simply giving PS Plus Essential subscribers access to all of the content that’s locked behind owning Beyond Light.
