Finally, a month after its launch in Asia, the new PlayStation Plus is almost there in Europe and you will have to wait a few more hours.
Tomorrow, June 23, you’ll be able to discover the new version of the subscription service and decide if you want to subscribe to Essential, the current version of PS Plus, or choose the add-on that gives you access to hundreds of PlayStation 5 and PS4 games, while PS Plus Premium lets you Also access to PlayStation Classics.
Existing members automatically switch to the basic level, then can choose if they want to upgrade to one of the new levels, and pay the difference for the remaining time of their subscription.
If you’re interested in knowing the monthly fee rates, here are the options:
|PS Plus Essential (monthly / quarterly / yearly)||€8.99 / €24.99 / €59.99|
|PS Plus Extra (monthly / quarterly / yearly)||€13.99 / €39.99 / €99.99|
|PS Plus Premium (monthly / quarterly / yearly)||€16.99 / €49.99 / €119.99|
We still don’t know which games will be available on the European service, but the list will likely be similar to the one in the US. Also, we’ll still have to wait to see if we stick with the classic PAL versions, which are more authentic but of lower quality.
Another point to keep in mind is that Essential will receive the usual 3/4 games update on the first Tuesday of every month, while Extra and Premium will get a second update with more PS5 and PS4 games, in the case of Premium it also adds new classics.
