Is Resident Evil 4 Remake Included in PlayStation Plus Premium?


Resident Evil 4 remake is set to launch on March 24, 2023. But will it be included in PlayStation Plus Premium?

Sony's answer to Xbox Game Pass, the PlayStation Plus subscription offers players the chance to play a variety of games included in the games catalog at no extra cost. Players receive free monthly games, and can delve into a library full of classic and modern titles, depending on their level of subscription.

The highest tier, PlayStation Plus Premium, includes monthly games, access to the Classics Catalog, game trials, and more.

One draw that subscribers were hoping for with PlayStation's tier system is access to games from day one, like Microsoft occasionally does with Xbox releases. With Resident Evil 4 remake tipped to be one of the biggest releases this month, will Sony put it on PlayStation Plus for subscribers to play at launch?

Is Resident Evil 4 Remake Included in PlayStation Plus Premium?

Sadly, no. Neither PlayStation or Capcom have announced that Resident Evil 4 remake will be playable at launch via the PlayStation Plus subscription. Players will instead need to purchase their own individual copy.

This isn't surprising, considering that Sony didn't put their own first-party titles on the subscription service at launch either. Neither God of War Ragnarök or Horizon Forbidden West were released on the subscription service, though the latter is now included in the PlayStation Plus Games Catalog a year after initial release.

It's possible that the upcoming title will make its way to the service eventually, but likely not for some time.

The original Resident Evil 4 is available to play via the PlayStation Plus Classics Catalog, however.

Resident Evil 4 remake will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on March 24, 2023.
