For many months now, there have been rumors that Sony is developing a competing service for Xbox Game Pass. Finally, they were confirmed: the corporation revealed its cards.
The PlayStation Spartacus turned out to be just an updated version of the PlayStation Plus. The old subscription was merged with PlayStation Now and, as insiders predicted, divided into three levels.
- PlayStation Plus Essential : the basic (essentially old) version of the service, which includes access to online and two free games per month – $9.99 (month) / $24.99 (quarter) / $59.99 (year);
- PlayStation Plus Extra : Advanced subscription that includes Essential content and approximately 400 PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 titles – $14.99/$39.99/$99.99;
- PlayStation Plus Premium : All the benefits of Essential and Extra plus a catalog of games from all other Sony consoles minus the Vita (PlayStation 3 releases will be available via the cloud where available) – $17.99/$49.99/$119.99.
And a separate line is PlayStation Plus Deluxe – a replacement for Premium for markets where there is no way to stream through the cloud. This version of the subscription will cost a little less (price will vary by country).
The exact launch date of the updated PS Plus was not named. It is known that Sony plans to switch to the service in the middle of the year – at the same time, all Extra, Premium and Deluxe users will have access to a number of hits, including Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11 and Returnal.
