PlayStation Plus has recently undergone a transformation. The previous PlayStation Plus format (offering online multiplayer gaming, discounts, and free monthly games) has merged with the now discontinued PlayStation Now service. PlayStation Now was PlayStation’s previous standalone game subscription service. It offered hundreds of games playable via cloud gaming and a selection of downloadable games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
The new look PlayStation Plus was revealed in March 2022 and officially launched in the UK in June 2022 as a three-tiered system. Each subscription tier – Essential, Extra, and Premium – offers a slightly different experience for users and each have their own price point.
As mentioned above, the new look PlayStation Plus subscription has three-tier options, Essential, Extra, and Premium. For an extensive break down of each tier check out our subscription guide on PlayStation plus
If you own a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 and enjoy playing online multiplayer games, such as Battlefield 2042; Call of Duty: Modern Warfare; FIFA; or The Elder Scrolls Online, then a PlayStation Plus subscription is a must-have, as you cannot play online multiplayer without a PlayStation Plus subscription for many AAA games. *
The specific tier of PlayStation Plus subscription worth subscribing to, however, depends very much on your gaming preferences and usage. There is no doubt that a PlayStation Plus subscription offers its members some very good perks – online multiplayer gaming, free monthly games, and exclusive discounts alone are worth paying for the entry level tier for many gamers with access to a PlayStation console. But which tier you should subscribe to and whether or not it’s worth the extra cost for the higher-level tiers will largely depend on whether you use the extra features available.
