The PlayStation Plus Essential games for September 2022 have been leaked, and they include three titles—Need for Speed Heat being the most prominent—that will be available at no additional cost to customers of any PlayStation Plus tier. You can count on the lineup to be finalized later today and released on September 6th.
I was wondering if you could tell me when the September 2022 PS Plus games would be published. The free monthly games for PlayStation Plus have always been revealed on the final Wednesday of the month at 4.30 PM UK time, with the games coming live the following Tuesday morning. Sony is likely to announce the upcoming free games for all PS Plus tiers today, August 31st, with availability set for the following Tuesday, September 6th.

What Games Will Be Available For Playstation Plus In September Of 2022?
Billbil-Kun, of the French bargains site Dealabs, is a reliable source, and he has spilled the beans on the upcoming PS Plus Essential update for July 2022. Their leaks of PS Plus and Xbox’s Games with Gold games have been spot-on for the entirety of 2021. You can find the three games listed below:
- Burning Need for Speed (PS4)
- The Granblue Dream vs. (PS4)
- TOM (PS5)
Does it look like a good month for PS Plus members to join? OK, now let’s talk about the games you’ll be getting. To celebrate the series’ silver anniversary, Need for Speed: Heat, the studio’s final entry, relocated the street racing series to a Florida-inspired setting. Nick gave it an 8 out of 10 in our review and declared, “Need for Speed Heat is the finest the series has been in a while.” It’s not flawless, but it has a certain vintage Underground appeal that I find endearing. Finally, an NFS game I can get into!
Meanwhile, Arc System Works’ Granblue Fantasy: Versus puts you in the ring with other anime fighters. But there were a few aspects that held it back, most notably the absence of a single notable player. However, it’s worth considering if you’re in the market for a new multiplayer combat game. Our thoughts on Granblue Fantasy: Versus can be found below.
Finally, TOEM delivers a one-of-a-kind experience to PS Plus by equipping you with a monochrome camera and sending you out to explore a monochromatic environment and accomplish objectives through photography. Nic remarked, “TOEM is a vibe,” in our TOEM review. A photographic game in greyscale (what some people could call black and white) has a certain mystique about it. It’s an odd oddity, to be sure, but it serves the tale and the mechanics admirably.
Is It Too Late To Get The August 2022 Playstation Plus Games?
Absolutely! Included in August’s PlayStation Plus lineup is the excellent Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 remake, which updates the classic extreme sports series for modern systems, the role-playing game (RPG) infused Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which introduces a new style of gameplay to the Japanese crime drama series, and the indie horror game Little Nightmares. You can get them until the brand new games are released the following week.
What Gives With This New Version Of Playstation Plus?
The revamped PlayStation Plus is now available everywhere, expanding and consolidating what was formerly known as PlayStation Now across a trio of subscription tiers. PS Plus has been rebranded as PS Plus Essential, and it now includes at least two free games each month in addition to online multiplayer, cloud save backups, special discounts, and more.
After that, PS Plus Extra includes access to a library of PS4 and PS5 games, while PS Plus Deluxe and Premium (depending on your area) include backward compatibility with PS2, PS1, and PSP games in addition to streaming support for PS3 games and other titles.
