The full PlayStation Plus game catalogue for subscribers on the Extra, Premium, and Deluxe tiers has been revealed, with a vast array of titles set to be available from 18 July 2023. From My Little Pony: A Maretime Bay Adventure to PSOne Classic Twisted Metal, there really is something for everyone.

While the latest collection is headlined by the delightful co-op adventure game It Takes Two and gritty shooter Sniper Elite 5, it may actually be Twisted Metal that’s the draw in this games catalogue.

To celebrate the upcoming release of the Twisted Metal TV series – premiering 27 July 2023 on Stan in Australia and Peacock in the United States – PlayStation is bringing back the first two Twisted Metal games.

These set the stage for the introduction of Needles Kane, aka Sweet Tooth, a killer clown who drives a deadly ice cream truck. Both games are premised on vicious vehicular combat, and task players with surviving the onslaught of cars, trucks, and other vehicles packed with weaponry.
