The launch of the three new tiers of PS Plus will be in the US on June 13th. The new PS Plus options look a lot like the Xbox Game Pass, which gives players access to a collection of games that rotates periodically and gives new owners a cheaper way to access a library of quality gaming titles right out of the gate.
It has released a full list of PS5 and PS4 games, with big names like Spider-Man, The Last of Us Part II, and God of War, as well as its lineup of classic games.
Sony said that it won't include brand new first-party games in the subscription package, like Microsoft did with Halo Infinite and Gears 5. That means that, at least initially, there won't be any games on the list.
Basic access to online services is included in the price of PlayStation Plus Essential. Plus Extra and Plus Premium both come with a catalog of PS4 and PS5 games, as well as an extra 340 games and the ability to stream PS3 titles from anywhere. The benefits players used to get from PSone Now are included.
The Plus Extra and Plus Premium subscription tiers will be bundled with the Ubisoft Plus Classics package, which will include 27 games at launch. It won't include day-one release titles, unlike the other subscription services.
Premium subscribers will get access to a collection of classic games that will show improved frame rates and higher-quality resolution compared to their original launch versions.
If you purchased the digital version of games from the original PS2 and PS3 generation, you can get the new versions for free.
Time-limited game trials will be part of the PS Plus Premium plan. If you decide to purchase the game, the game save data will carry over from the trials. There are limited trials of six games so far, including a game called Cyberpunk 2077. We're expecting to see that list grow in the future, based on a rumor that Sony will require new games over a certain price to put a demo in the program.
The monthly games you can download and play for free will be the same as with the previous Plus subscription. On the first Tuesday of the month, all Plus subscribers will get a monthly refresh, but Plus Extra and Premium will get an additional refresh in the middle of the month.
Europe, Australia, and New Zealand will be the first countries to get PS Plus when it arrives on June 23rd.
