While players have been patiently waiting to see how PlayStation plans to respond to the massive success of Xbox’s GamePass system, and while there have been plenty of rumors, it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer as it looks like the news will be announced this week.

Codenamed Spartacus, the subscription service will see the combination of two existing services already present on PlayStation: PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now. Plus is the multiplayer service for the Sony consoles, while Now has been their game streaming service.

Last year, Bloomberg released some documents detailing that the Spartacus service will come with different tiers, with a range of costs. As many can assume, the higher-priced tiers will offer some benefits that won’t be available to the lower-priced ones. And with recent rumors, one of those top benefits is the ability to play certain PS3 and PS2 games. As of right now, the only games that are backwards-compatible right now are PS4 on the PlayStation 5.

All of this sounds pretty great, but there is one thing that it doesn’t look like PlayStation will be directly copying from Xbox: the release of the console-exclusives on day one release. This means that upcoming games like God of War Ragnarok will not be available for subscribers on their release day.

None of this is actually confirmed, so take it with a grain of salt. However, it does look like we are poised to find out what Sony has planned very soon.
