The release of Sony’s catalog of games for its new PlayStationPlus Tiers has unlocked dozens of games for subscribers to try out. The biggest challenge with accessing such a large library of PS4 and PS5 games is sorting through them and finding just the right game. In return, community members help PlayStation Plus subscribers sort through specific subgenres that Sony may have skipped. In a specific example, a Reddit user made a list of games that support local multiplayer.
Reddit user particiv2 shared a post on the PlayStationPlus subreddit where he collects what he believes are all local multiplayer games included in the PlayStation Plus Extra game library. Particiv2 say they’re a “big fan” of couch gaming with friends and felt the need to make a list since Sony didn’t offer it as a filtering option. This makes it relatively easy for PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers to find a local multiplayer game to play.
The list is divided into two different sections. One section is dedicated to sports games as so many contain local multiplayer modes and the other section contains everything else. The sports section includes games such as NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, PGA Tour 2K21and Tour de France 2021. There are also racing games incl TrackMania Turbo, NASCAR Heat 5and MX vs ATV All Out. Some oddball games are also options, such as Chess Ultra. PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers can choose from a diverse selection of sports games.
The non-sports and racing games are all the more diverse. There are fighting games like Mortal Kombat 11, Nidhögg 2, dead or alive 5and Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. Include co-op focused local multiplayer games trine 4, overcooked 2, terrariumsand Human case flat. Then there are also arcade-style local multiplayer games such as crash bandicoot 4to.
It’s a shame that Sony doesn’t offer a filter option for local multiplayer games in the PlayStation Plus extra menus. Couch co-op and multiplayer games seem to be a very clear area of its library that subscribers will be interested in. Of course, by compiling this list, particiv2 is doing its part to encourage Sony to add such a filter in the future.
These games and more are currently available to those who subscribe to either PlayStation Plus Extra or the tier above it, PlayStation Plus Premium. Once subscribed, they are free to download and play. There is no limit to what games can be downloaded from the library, how many can be downloaded at once or anything like that. PlayStation Plus Extra Subscribers just need to know what games they want, local multiplayer or otherwise.
