All-new PlayStation Plus launches in June with 700+ games - start at $9.99 USD monthly / $59.99 USD yearly
PlayStation Plus Essential
Essential is the same PlayStation Plus service that currently exists, with no changes to the current pricing. It includes two monthly downloadable games, discounts, saved game cloud storage, and access to online multiplayer for most games.
PlayStation Plus Extra
The Extra tier includes all Essential benefits, and adds a catalog of around 400 PS4 and PS5 games that can be downloaded at any time while you're a member. It includes first-party and third-party games, but no new exclusives will launch into the service.
In the US, it will cost $14.99 monthly / $39.99 quarterly / $99.99 yearly, and in the UK it will cost £10.99 monthly / £31.99 quarterly / £83.99 yearly. No Australian prices have been announced at time of writing.
PlayStation Plus Premium
Premium includes all the Essential and Extra benefits, and adds 340 extra games to the catalog, including PS1, PS2 and PSP games for streaming and download. PS3 games will also be available, but only to stream. Streaming can be carried out on PS4, PS5, and PC. Premium members will also receive time-limited trials of some games.
In the US, it will cost $17.99 monthly / $49.99 quarterly / $119.99 yearly, and in the UK it will cost £13.49 monthly / £39.99 quarterly / £99.99 yearly.
At its top tier, the new PS Plus will offer more than 700 games for streaming or download (including streaming on PC), and the library will be "regularly refreshed". PS3 games will be available as streaming-only titles, while PS1, PS2 and PSP games will come with download or streaming options. Sony has made clear that (at least for now) first-party exclusives will not be launched into the service for any tier, unlike Xbox Game Pass.
The service will launch with the likes of Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, and Returnal. Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan told GamesIndustry there's a diverse line-up to come: "Whether it's indies, whether it's big games, or things that celebrate our heritage... all sorts of games. We are going to have all of it, and hopefully a line-up that ticks all sorts of boxes."
