Huge PS5 update coming soon means you’ll pay LESS for games each month


SONY has revealed launch dates for its huge new PlayStation subscription service packed with hundreds of games.

The overhauled PlayStation Plus is the gaming giant’s answer to Xbox Game Pass, which its rival has successful led on so far.

Sony says new offering a ‘major evolution’

PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now are being merged into one mega offering, split across three tiers.

Now, the Japanese firm has shared exactly when we can expect the revamped service to land.

Asia – with the exception of Japan – will be first, on May 23.

Then on June 1, it’s Japan’s turn.

A couple of weeks later, the Americas will be able to subscribe from June 13.

And finally, players in UK and the rest of Europe will get their chance on June 22.

Classic PlayStation, PS2, PS3, and PSP games will be available among the perks once Plus launches.

PS Plus Premium, the top tier, will pack more than 740 games, at £99.99/$119.99 per year.

The next package down, PS Plus Extra, features up to 400 PS4 and PS5 games, for £83.99 / $99.99 a year.

And the cheapest option, PS Plus Essential with multiplayer access and two monthly downloadable games, comes in at £49.99 / $59.99.

While PlayStation Now continues for the time being, it’ll obviously shutdown once the new combined service launches.

Anyone with an existing PlayStation Now subscription can exchange it for access to PS Plus Premium.
