Following up on the inclusion of Yakuza: Like a Dragon in PS Plus Essential (available to redeem until 6th September 2022), SEGA and Sony will put Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 on PS Plus Extra as part of their joint effort to bring the entire mainline series to the service. As the first three titles in the franchise storywise, they're the perfect place to start. Here's what we thought of all three:
One PS5 launch title returning to the PS Plus service is Bugsnax, which we awarded a 7/10 in our PS5 review. "Bugsnax delivers a good time regardless of platform, but it excels on PS5. It benefits from much shorter loading sequences, improved performance, and the DualSense's unique features. All this makes for a more enjoyable excursion to Snaktooth Island. If you play Bugsnax at all — and you absolutely should — do it on PS5."
If you're into open world games playable in co-op, Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be right up your alley. It's come a long way since our 6/10 PS4 review, so we recommend taking it for a spin. It's better than Ghost Recon: Breakpoint at the very least.
