In a blog post shared by president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan on Tuesday, the company announced moving forward there will be three different subscription tiers that will all come with their own perks.
The “Essential” tier will be the PlayStation Plus program subscribers have grown familiar with, offering two monthly downloadable titles, cloud storage, and online multiplayer access for $59.99 per year or $9.99 a month. Offering a gaming library that “will be regularly refreshed,” the “PlayStation Plus Extra” level will cost $99.99 annually or $14.99/month, while the “Premium” tier goes for $119.99/year or $17.99/month.
When the new tiers launch in June, gamers enrolled in these pricier plans will have immediate access to critically acclaimed titles such as Marvel’s Spider-Man and its Miles Morales-starring sequel, Mortal Kombat 11, God of War, Death Stranding, and Returnal. Premium-level subscribers will notably have access to the PlayStation Now cloud streaming service featuring classic titles from all previous PlayStation consoles including the PSP handheld. Users will also be able to try out new games before buying them as part of the service’s “time-limited game trials” perk.
“With the all-new PlayStation Plus, we’re focused on delivering a compelling game subscription service with curated content from our exclusive PlayStation Studios team and our third-party partners,” Ryan wrote to conclude the company’s post. “The newly enhanced PlayStation Plus will enable our fans to discover and engage with more content than ever before, and deepen their connection with the PlayStation community through shared experiences.”
