Its statement read: “Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA did not appear as an unplanned PS Plus Extra and we are currently looking into details. We will not remove any titles from any platform without prior communication through our channels.”
Original article: Yassin VIII: Lacrimosa from Dana removed from PS Plus Extra After the PS5 release of the JRPG last week. The original PS4 version had been available on Sony’s subscription service since it was renewed last summer, but it suddenly disappeared over the weekend. The game was not reported to be removed early; There wasn’t even an expiration date attached to the title’s PSN listing.
PS Plus Basic Games and titles like GTA: Vice City – Definitive Edition Their expiration dates were communicated through listings on the service’s PS5 homepage, but the Ys VIII didn’t have one. It left the service without a trace – both the PS4 and PS5 versions now have a £34.99 / $39.99 price tag attached even if you’re a subscriber, and there’s no Free upgrade from PS4 to PS5 Available.
The move sets a worrying precedent for PS Plus: if games can be removed at will without an expiration date listed, other PS5 and PS4 titles could disappear overnight. Will the same thing happen when Ys IX: Monstrum Nox Is receiving a PS5 release next year, which is currently still part of the PS Plus Extra? We’ve contacted NIS America for more details.
