The base tier will basically replace the PlayStation Plus that exists now.
what you need to know
- Back in December 2021, we learned that Sony may be planning a new game subscription service, codenamed Spartacus.
- A new report suggests that Spartacus will be split into three tiers, with monthly options of $10, $13 and $16.
- The base tier is said to replace PlayStation Plus, while the most expensive tier adds game trials, streaming and classic games.
Sony’s upcoming rumored “Spartacus” gaming service could have three subscription tiers, with the most expensive option going up to $16 a month.
According to a new report from GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb, Sony is actually planning to split Spartacus into three tiers, consistent with previous reports. The first tier is $10 per month and essentially replaces PlayStation Plus, offering monthly free games and discounts.
The second tier is $13 per month and includes a catalog of games. Finally, for $16 per month, the third and final tier will offer trials of new games, game streaming, and a library of “classic” games. Right now, Sony isn’t planning to offer any day-one releases of PlayStation Studios, marking the biggest difference between this planned overhaul and Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass.
The report also states that Sony intends to put the new service into testing sometime in the next few weeks, meaning official word may be imminent. The company recently launched Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Forbidden West for PS4 and PS5, and is gearing up for the upcoming Gran Turismo 7.
