The game has received positive reviews and is being compared to the classic JRPG Chrono Trigger.
Although Sea of Stars is available on both platforms, it is worth noting that PS Plus Essential and Xbox Game Pass Core subscribers do not have access to the game.
Sea of Stars, a brand-new game that is also among the highest-rated releases of the year, has officially joined the lineups of Xbox Game Pass and PS Plus Extra starting today. While Xbox Game Pass adds games on their release day each month, it is rare for PS Plus Extra to feature games on their release day. Even rarer is the occurrence of the same game being available on both PS Plus Extra and Xbox Game Pass on its very first day of release, but that is precisely what has happened with Sea of Stars.
In some way, Sea of Stars has been made available as a day-one release on both PS Plus Extra and Xbox Game Pass. This significantly simplifies the process for anyone interested in trying out the game, as it can be played on PC, PlayStation consoles, and Xbox consoles through a subscription fee, rather than purchasing the game outright. And if the reviews are any indication, PS Plus Extra and Xbox Game Pass subscribers will definitely want to give Sea of Stars a chance.
According to the review aggregation website OpenCritic, Sea of Stars currently has an overall rating of 90. The reviews for Sea of Stars have been predominantly positive, with many praising it as a remarkable modern interpretation of classic JRPG tropes. As Sea of Stars is often compared to Chrono Trigger, it is safe to say that fans of this classic Square Enix JRPG may be particularly interested in trying out the new game through PS Plus Extra or Xbox Game Pass.
It is worth mentioning that there are versions of PS Plus and Xbox Game Pass that do not include Sea of Stars. On the PlayStation Plus side, both PS Plus Extra and Premium subscribers can play Sea of Stars, but the game is not available for those who have signed up for the PS Plus Essential tier. Similarly, Sea of Stars is easily accessible in most Xbox Game Pass tiers starting today, but it will not be part of the upcoming Xbox Game Pass Core subscription.
Xbox Game Pass Core is a new tier of Xbox Game Pass that will be introduced in September. Xbox Game Pass Core replaces Xbox Live Gold. It includes the benefits that were previously associated with Xbox Live Gold, but without the monthly free games. Instead, they have been replaced with a selection of titles from the main Xbox Game Pass library.
Speaking of September 2023, it should be a big month for both Xbox Game Pass and PS Plus. The highly anticipated Starfield will be joining Xbox Game Pass in September, although Sony's plans for PS Plus next month have not been revealed yet. However, it has been leaked that the game Saints Row 2022 will be part of the free PS Plus games lineup in September 2023.
Sea of Stars is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
