Sony has finally unveiled the all new PlayStation Plus subscription which has been rumoured for many months. Full details of how it works can be found on the official PlayStation Blog.
PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now are being combined into one service which is split between three membership tiers.
- PlayStation Plus Essential – The same as the current PlayStation Plus service with the same pricing
- PlayStation Plus Extra – The middle tier, the same benefits as the first with an added catalog of up to 400 games to download and play
- PlayStation Plus Premium – Same benefits as the previous two but add up to another 340 additional games including PS3 titles and classics from PlayStation, PS2 and PSP generations. Also offers cloud streaming access using PS4, PS5 and PC.
The Premium tier will cost $17.99 USD per month or $119.99 USD yearly while the Extra tier will cost $14.99 USD per month or $99.99 USD yearly.
Each tier offers additional bonuses for gamers and while all three subscriptions are available for both PS5 and PS4, PS5 users will get access to more games.
