Is Forspoken Included in PlayStation Plus?

Square Enix

Given that Forspoken is set to be a PlayStation 5 console exclusive, many players are wondering whether or not the game will be included in the PlayStation Plus subscription.

Forspoken, the upcoming RPG from Square Enix and Luminous Productions, is set to release next year on Jan. 24, 2023. A brand new trailer for the game was released during The Game Awards 2022, alongside the first playable demo.

The game will have a PlayStation console exclusivity, which lasts for two years, and will also be available on PC. Those with a PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium subscription will no doubt be hoping for a day one release on the service, akin to a number of Xbox releases on Game Pass.

Will Forspoken be Included in PlayStation Plus?

At the time of writing, neither Square Enix or Sony have announced plans to include Forspoken as a day one addition to PlayStation Plus. It's also unclear whether or not the game will arrive on the service in the future.

As it stands, those looking to grab Forspoken on release will need to purchase the full game, pre-orders for which are live now.

A number of Sony's recent big hitters, including first-party titles such as God of War Ragnarök, did not receive day one releases on PlayStation Plus, either. Microsoft, on the other hand, have announced that a variety of their upcoming titles, including Bethesda's Starfield, will be added to Xbox Game Pass at launch.
