Update: In a statement shared with push squareNIS America has confirmed Ys VIII: Dana’s Lachrymosa has been incorrectly removed PS Plus ExtraAnd the company will now investigate.
Its statement read: “Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA was not planned to appear on PS Plus Extra and we are currently investigating the details. We will not release any title from any platform without first communicating through our channels. will not remove.”
Original article: Ys VIII: Dana’s Lachrymosa has been removed PS Plus Extra After the PS5 version of the JRPG was released last week. The original PS4 edition was made available on Sony’s subscription service after this past summer’s revamp, but it suddenly disappeared over the weekend. The removal of the game was not communicated ahead of time; There was also no expiration date associated with the title’s PSN listing.
PS Plus essential Games and titles such as GTA: Vice City – Definitive Edition have been communicating their expiration dates through listings on the PS5’s hub page for the service, but Ys VIII never had one. It’s left the service without a trace — the PS4 and PS5 versions now have a £34.99/$39.99 price tag even if you’re a subscriber, and there’s no Free PS4 to PS5 upgrade available
The move sets a concerning precedent for PS Plus: if games without a listed expiration date can be removed at will, other PS5, PS4 titles could disappear overnight. Will the same thing happen when Ys IX: Monstrum Nox gets its PS5 version next year, which is currently still part of PS Plus Extra? We’ve reached out to NIS America for more details.
