After all the rumors and leaks, the new version of the PlayStation Plus subscription service is coming and we now know the official breakdown of tiers and benefits.

Sony has released a blog post to describe the three different tiers to the service, as well as what benefits come with each one and their pricing.

The base model of PlayStation Plus, now called PlayStation Plus Essential, remains largely the same, giving players access the online multiplayer, discounted prices during sales, and free monthly games. It will cost $60 per year, or $$10 on a monthly charge. You can see a more specific breakdown here:

  • United States – $10/month | $15/quarter | $60/year
  • Europe – €9/month | €25/quarter | €60/year
  • United Kingdom – £7/month | £20/quarter | £50/year
  • Japan – ¥850/month | ¥2,150/quarter | ¥5,143/year

The next tier up is PlayStation Plus Extra, which is going to bring all the benefits of Essential while also giving players access to up to 400 PS4 games. The description of this tier doesn’t make it clear how players will be able to access these games – will they be streaming or downloading? – but we do know that it includes both first-party and third-party game.

You can check out the pricing breakdown here:

  • United States – $15/month | $40/quarter | $100/year
  • Europe – €14/month | €40/quarter | €100/year
  • United Kingdom – £11/month | £32/quarter | £84/year
  • Japan – ¥1,300/month | ¥3,600/quarter | ¥8,600/year

Finally, we have the top tier: PlayStation Plus Premium, which is going to provide all of the previously mentioned benefits while also bringing in a catalog of games from as far back as the original PlayStation. It is important to note that while PSX, PS2, and PSP games will available for downloading, all the PS3 games will be restricted to streaming only. Premium will also give players access to limited-time game trials and cloud-streaming on PC.

PlayStation has also confirmed a handful of games that will be available to players at the launch of the service:

  • Death Stranding
  • God of War
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • Returnal (PS5 exclusive)

The service will be available in Asia first, but it appears it will soon come to North America shortly after in June. That is all we know in terms of the release, but that is only a few more months to wait until we can really get our hands on the subscription service.
