PlayStation has formally announced its ‘all-new’ three-tiered PlayStation Plus offering, and it’ll be launching this June.

As previously rumoured, the service will merge the existing Plus & PlayStation Now schemes into one service. There’ll be three tiers at three different price points, each offering different benefits for those members. The PlayStation Plus Essential tier will be largely the same as the current Plus service. They’ll get two monthly games, exclusive discounts, cloud storage and online multiplayer for £6.99 a month. (Or £19.99 quarterly/£49.99 annually.)

Then, the PlayStation Plus Extra tier will include all of that, as well as a catalogue of “up to 400” PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games. These games will include, Sony say, “blockbuster hits from our PlayStation Studios catalogue and our third party partners”. This tier will set you back £10.99 a month, £31.99 a quarter or £83.99 a year.

Finally, PlayStation Plus Premium will include both the lower tier contents, and adds “up to 340 additional games”. These include PS3 games via cloud streaming and “a catalogue of beloved classic games” from the original PlayStation, PS2 and PSP consoles. These will be available in both download and streaming options. There’ll also be cloud streaming access where PlayStation Now is currently available. There’ll also be time-limited trials too. Cost wise, this tier will be priced at £13.49 a month or £39.99 a quarter and £99.99 for the whole year.

While the full list of games is yet to be disclosed, PlayStation has revealed some of the launch games. They’ll include Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man & Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11 and Returnal. The all new PlayStation Plus will be rolled out over the course of June first in Asia, then North America and Europe. You can read more on the PlayStation Blog.
