Remnant 2 is a fan favorite shooter designed to be played solo or in a party of three. It earned a 9/10 in IGN’s review. “Where Remnant: From The Ashes was a strong first draft, Remnant 2 is a revolutionary sequel and a sterling manifesto for the looter-shooter soulslike,” we said.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion is the PS4 and PS5 remake of the RPG originally on PlayStation Portable. “Even when its portable roots occasionally distract, Crisis Core –Final Fantasy 7– Reunion is the best way to play one of the PSP’s most beloved games, almost completely modernizing its graphics, combat, and music in the process,” IGN said in our 8/10 review.

Switching genres again, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord is the sequel to the acclaimed medieval combat simulator. “Though lacking in some technical polish, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is a very satisfying early access strategy battlefield,” IGN said in our 8/10 review.

The Jackbox Party Pack 9 brings more no-controller necessary party game fun to PS4 and PS5, as a group can instead join each game using their phones. The games are wild and wacky in a sort of Cards Against Humanity turned digital format.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous brings the beloved tabletop game to PlayStation where the player embarks on a journey to a realm overrun by demons and rise to power by choosing one of six available Mythic Paths. It earned an 8/10 from IGN too.

Travis Touchdown returns to Santa Destroy after a ten-year absence in No More Heroes 3. It’s “an amusing but extremely uneven sequel, with its entertaining bosses separated mostly by poor performance and barebones tedium,” IGN said in our 6/10 review.

From the same franchise comes Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition. This one “has Suda51’s eccentric charm, but the repetitive hack and slash gameplay doesn’t feel nearly as great as previous entries in the series,” we said in another 6/10 review.

Deadcraft is a simulation and action role-playing game where players must craft to survive. Battling through the apocalypse sometimes means using whatever scraps one can find to make weapons. Other times it means enlisting a loyal undead to assist in building and running an entire factory of grotesque machinery.

Steep is the totally radical extreme sports game from Ubisoft which lets players explore the Alps and Alaska. “Steep is a fresh extreme sports journey through a huge map, slowed only by dull paragliding and a lack of progression,” IGN said in our 7/10 review.

Job Simulator is a comical PlayStation VR2 game where players take on the role of a futuristic human in a world that’s seen robots take on every job. “Job Simulator is a VR funhouse that’s all about goofy experimentation, interactivity, and laughs,” IGN said in our 7/10 review.

Summoner is a classic PlayStation 2 RPG where players take on the role of Joseph: the key to an ancient prophecy who has the power of the summoner. Joseph must search the corners of the world for the five rings that will unlock his true power.

Beloved action plarform Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters also comes to PlayStation Plus this month. This one earned a 9/10 review from IGN, with the PSP game letting players take on intergalactic adventures and new worlds.

Finally, Jeanne d’Arc is a strategy RPG from Level 5 where Jeanne d’Arc escorts players into a fictionalized version of 15th century Europe as they take part in a mystical journey inspired by the heroics of Joan of Arc.
