Game news PlayStation Plus: Sony reveals the launch date of the new subscription offers
For a few months, Sony worked in the shadows on a secret project called “Spartacus”. Behind this imposing name was hiding, in reality, a remodeling of the various subscription offers offered by the Japanese manufacturer. PlayStation Now may have bowed out, PlayStation Plus welcomes its vestiges and multiplies the general advantages tenfold thanks to three new formulas. Expected for next June, we finally know the official date!
- Sony’s answer to Xbox Game Pass is coming soon
- A delayed launch, here is the European date!
Sony’s answer to Xbox Game Pass is coming soon
Since the formalization of the Xbox Game Pass by Microsoft, we have been waiting impatiently to see Sony’s response to this new strategy. For a long time, the Japanese manufacturer thought about the most suitable format to offer not a frontal response, but rather an alternative. Finally, after many months punctuated by rumors and clues, disseminated more or less voluntarily by Sony and PlayStation, Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, answered our questions in order to clearly detail this merger and enlargement of the online service.
Following this interview, Sony announced that the transformation of PlayStation Plus would take place during the month of June 2022. A release window that was only waiting for more precision, at least until recently since the date has just been formalized. In the meantime, we had the opportunity to discover the first titles available at launch Extra and Premium offers, respectively the second and third levels of the new PlayStation Plus, and to know what will happen to those who already have an active subscription.
A delayed launch, here is the European date!
With this redesign of the PlayStation Plus formulas, Sony is gradually starting to his transition to face the future of video games. Moreover, in the morning, we started to notice first movements around the Premium formula from PlayStation Plus, namely the one that allows, among other things, to have access to a gallery of titles from old media, such as the PSP, the PSOne or the PS2. So, inevitably, the players began to tell themselves that things were seriously falling into place, and they were right since the new version of the PlayStation will land in Europe in two months, all stacks!
Sony therefore closes this week with concrete information on the PlayStation Plus. Unfortunately, if we can rejoice in this announcement, we note that Europe is the last continent to discover this remodeled version. Indeed, Asia has the primacy as well as the chance to test this service before everyone else since it will be deployed there on May 23rd. Gradually, Japan (June 1, 2022) and America (June 13, 2022) will have access to it, before Europe closes the march on June 22, 2022. If you want to know everything about this brand new PlayStation Plus, we tell you more about it and in detail in this article.
