It's back to business as usual for PlayStation following its absence from E3 2019. Today Sony announced the expansion of its PlayStation Hits lineup, which offers popular PS4 games at a discounted price of $19.99. This summer's additions will include five new PS4 games, four of which are PlayStation exclusives. Headlining the group are both the Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition and Resident Evil 7, two of the most successful games previously released on the platform.
In addition to both Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition and Resident Evil 7, this wave of PlayStation Hits also includes surprise hit Nioh, the classic God of War 3 Remastered, and the more niche but impressively resilient multiplayer horror game Friday the 13th. The lineup leans quite a bit into single-player versus multiplayer, but that's a large part of PlayStation's brand compared to its competition this generation.
Today's five game announcements come off the back of another wave of recent PlayStation Hits reveals. Not too long ago, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, LEGO Jurassic World, Mad Max, Persona 5, and Star Wars Battlefront were also added to the $19.99 lineup. With this recent wave as well as the upcoming additions, that makes for a total of 41 games within the PlayStation Hits roster.
Of course, there's still plenty of room to grow for PlayStation Hits. God of War, Sony's latest release in the franchise, is at the top of many a PS4 owner's list, but other exclusives are also waiting their turn to be added. The Shadow of the Colossus Remake, The Last Guardian, both Knack games, or even The Order: 1886 could be next. There's also that little gem named Spider-Man, too, but odds are that one is a bit too recent to join these classics just yet.

PS4 owners can purchase the latest wave of $19.99 PlayStation Hits starting June 28, which just so happens to be the one-year anniversary of the launch of the PlayStation Hits program. The total line-up has grown from just 15 games all the way up to 41 in a year's time. Hopefully by this time in 2020 Sony will have added more than another 26 games to the PlayStation Hits lineup, making for a great opportunity to catch up on the PS4's backlog before the expected launch of the next-generation PlayStation 5.
