PS Plus on PC missing Stray, Marvel's Avengers, and Assassin’s Creed

By Lee Brady,

PlayStation Plus on PC has not yet received any of the PS Plus Extra and Premium games for July 2022, depriving subscribers of recent additions such as Marvel's Avengers, Assassin's Creed Unity and Stray.

PS Plus on PC has not received any official updates since the subscription service rebranded from PS Now alongside the introduction of the PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium tiers. While PS Premium subscribers on PS4 and PS5 can access games like Stray and Marvel's Avengers, PS Plus on PC is missing Stray, Marvel's Avengers, the Assassin's Creed games, and more new games for PS Plus Extra and Premium from July 2022.

PS Plus on PC missing PS1, PSP games and new arrivals

ps-plus-pc-strayPS Plus on PC still lacking some major attention from Sony.

PS Plus on PC subscribers wouldn't have been expecting games like Final Fantasy 7 Remake or Spirit of the North Enhanced Edition, as PS5 titles are not available for streaming even on console. However, the absence of the PS4 new arrivals such as social media craze Stray and the now somewhat interesting to PS Plus players Marvel's Avengers is fairly baffling, and there's been no word from Sony as to why they haven't yet appeared.

What's just as strange is the lack of PS1 and PSP games on the PC streaming service. All of the retro titles offered on PS Plus so far can be streamed on PS4 and PS5, so the same titles should be playable on PS Plus on PC — but so far, no such luck. It's a move that reflects badly on Sony's management of the streaming service and continues to show how it utterly pales next to the offerings of its more-established competitor, Microsoft's PC Game Pass.

With Sony fretting over Microsoft's pending acquisition of Call of Duty, particularly given the greater market share owned by Xbox Game Pass and its PC equivalent, one would think they'd be trying to make a better case for themselves as a competitor by at least having its own services keep par with each other.

In the case of Assassin's Creed, perhaps the Ubisoft-PlayStation agreement only extends to consoles to avoid competing with its own Ubisoft Plus on PC? Either way, we'll update this story should any changes come as we approach hearing about the new PS Plus games for August, but let us know your thoughts on all this lack of Stray in the comments below.
