PlayStation announced today which games are being offered free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. The list of games available for all subscription levels includes Mafia and Evil Dead, all of which will be available from February 7th. The company also announced that it will be discontinuing the PS Plus Collection, its offering of the best-selling PS4-era titles for subscribers.

February’s PS Plus games include the aforementioned Mafia – more specifically, the recently released remake of the original title called Mafia: Definitive Edition. The other offerings are Evil Dead, the 4v1 multiplayer game, and the skateboard platformer OlliOlli World. In addition to its traditional three-game offering, PS Plus’ February collection also includes Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion. Note that players must already own Destiny 2 in order to play it.

In addition to the games, PlayStation also announced that it would be retiring the PS Plus Collection in May. The PS Plus Collection is a group of successful PS4 titles that, to use Sony’s words, “defined the generation”. The original collection consisted of 20 games (Persona 5 was removed from the collection last year), including first-party titles God of War, Bloodborne, Days Gone, Until Dawn, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Detroit: Become Human, and The Last of us remastered. Third-party games included Batman: Arkham Knight, Mortal Kombat X, Resident Evil 7, Fallout 4, and Monster Hunter World.

PS Plus users have until May 9th to claim the games in the collection if they haven’t already. Once they claim them, Sony says users will be able to “access these titles even after this date, as long as you remain a PlayStation Plus member.” It is possible that these games will later be added to other PS4-era titles in the library, which are exclusive to PS Plus Extra and Premium tier subscribers.
