PlayStation Plus Extra will lose another popular game in December 2022, giving subscribed customers just a few more weeks to play.
The games available on the Additional PlayStation Plus the service continues to change over time, with several popular titles being removed at the end of December. Recent PlayStation Store updates have shown that some popular titles like Assassin’s Creed: Walhalla is going to leave PS Plus Extra, and it looks like Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition will also leave.
Although there is currently no official announcement from Playstation regarding the removal of pillars of eternity from the PS Plus Extra service, an update to the online store page confirms the transition. However, players still interested in trying out the game while it remains on the service still at least have time to try it out before it leaves, and it will still be available for regular purchase afterward.
According to the PlayStation Store page for pillars of eternitythe game will leave the PS Plus Extra service on December 20, 2022. This is notably at the same time that PlayStation plans to remove Assassin’s Creed: Walhalla of the subscription service as well. However, given that this title isn’t the highest-profile game released in December, its removal didn’t receive the same immediate attention as PlayStation’s more high-profile entries.
This change in the PS Plus Extra service means that customers wishing to give pillars of eternity a trial for the price included will have to act quickly. For impatient Obsidian Entertainment fans Declaredit’s also the last chance to take a peek into the universe of pillars of eternity on PS Plus, ahead of the upcoming title. However, it should also be noted that, as is the case with all games retired from the PS Plus Extra service, pillars of eternity will still be available for purchase after December 20. Similarly, anyone who has already purchased the game will still have access to it.
Given that pillars of eternity isn’t part of the featured games tab for PS Plus Extra, so it probably won’t be as huge a loss as the other titles releasing in December. That being said, this is a huge loss for fans of isometric RPGs, as the subgenre doesn’t have a huge representation on the various tiers of the PS Plus subscription service. Hopefully PlayStation will add more titles to complete the list as more games are added to PS Plus in the coming months.
pillars of eternity is available now for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One.
