Sony confirms its new PlayStation Plus tier will launch on June 13, unveils list of games – TechCrunch

Sony announced today that its revamped PlayStation Plus gaming subscription tires will launch in the US on June 13. The new PlayStation Plus tier offers something similar to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, where users can access a rotating library of games for a monthly fee. Sony also released a list of games that will be available within the release time frame. It’s worth noting that Sony’s new subscription tier won’t include new first-party games like Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden City, at least not at launch.

The lowest tier of the subscription service is called “PlayStation Plus Essential,” which has the same benefits as a PlayStation Plus membership now, for $9.99 a month. The middle tier, called “PlayStation Plus Extra,” has the same perks as the base tier, but includes a selection of up to 400 PS4 and PS5 games. Sony points out that games at the Extra tier can be downloaded for online play. Additional tiers cost $14.99 per month.

The top tier of the subscription service, called “PlayStation Plus Premium,” gives you access to everything in the Essential and Extra tiers and 340 games, including PS3 games you can stream via the cloud. This tier will also offer classic games in streaming and download options, including original PlayStation, PS2 and PSP titles. The package costs $17.99 per month and also includes limited-time game trials, so customers can try out select games before purchasing. Sony revealed that some of the games that will be participating in the trial include Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, Horizon Forbidden, Cyberpunk 2077, Farming Simulator 2022, Little Tina’s Wonderland and WWE 2K22. “

Sony also revealed that Ubisoft is bringing its subscription packs to PlayStation as Ubisoft Plus Classics. Access to Ubisoft+ Classics games is a perk for PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium members.

The company also noted that games in its PlayStation Plus game catalog will continue to be updated. PlayStation Plus Essential players will see monthly updates on the first Tuesday of each month, while Playstation Plus Extra and Premium players will see monthly updates in the middle of each month.
