Red Dead Redemption 2 makes a triumphant return to the service, giving players another chance to dive into Rockstar's meticulously crafted open-world experience.

Among the new additions, Deceive Inc. stands out as a unique entry for PS5 users. This game immerses players in the high-stakes world of espionage, where you compete against rival spies in missions filled with tension and intrigue. Next up, The Sims 4: City Living expansion allows players to explore bustling urban environments, adding depth and variety to the already expansive life simulation game. Meanwhile, Crime Boss: Rockay City, though receiving mixed reviews, offers a glimpse into the underworld of 1990s Florida. It's a stealth-action first-person shooter that aims to capture the chaotic charm of its setting.

Strategy enthusiasts will be pleased with the inclusion of The Settlers: New Allies, a game that combines city-building with exploration. This title marks the latest entry in the long-running series, inviting players to guide a band of settlers through new and challenging landscapes. Stranded: Alien Dawn offers a different survival experience, tasking players with ensuring the survival of a marooned group on an alien planet. Both Cat Quest and Cat Quest 2 add a touch of whimsy to the lineup, with their charming, open-world RPG adventures. These games, set in a feline-centric universe, promise hours of engaging gameplay.

For those with a taste for nostalgia, the Classic Games Catalog has some gems in store. 2Xtreme, G-Police, and Worms Pinball are all set to make a comeback.
