Sony's PlayStation Plus has been around for more than a decade, however, the service received a full makeover in June 2022. Prior to this change, PS Plus granted subscribers access to online multiplayer, free monthly games, and a few other benefits like unique discounts on the PS Store. During this period, players could also subscribe to PlayStation Now to gain access to a library of PS4, PS3, and some PS2 games.

In 2022, Sony opted to combine these two services into a new version of PS Plus. Utilizing a tier system, this model has hundreds of games from across PlayStation's history, multiple price points, and a slew of other features. With the service picking up steam, it makes sense that a PS5 or PS4 owner might want a full breakdown of what they can expect if they decide to subscribe to PS Plus.

What Are PlayStation Plus's Tiers?

playstation plus tiers

Rather than present a one-size-fits-all subscription, PS Plus lets users have their pick from three tiers: Essential, Extra, and Premium. Here is a brief summary of each level's offerings:

  • Essential – The core PS Plus benefits as they were prior to the 2022 relaunch. Subscribers gain access to online multiplayer, monthly games, exclusive discounts, and a few other benefits.
  • ExtraEssential tier benefits + a catalog of downloadable PS5 and PS4 games.
  • Premium – Essential & Extra tiers benefits + a catalog of classic PS3, PS2, PS1, and PSP games.

Ultimately, picking a PS Plus tier comes down to someone's needs. If a player will only be using the online multiplayer feature, Essential will suffice and there is little to gain from subscribing to one of the higher tiers.

Premium's central selling is its Classics Catalog, which adds hundreds of titles on top of the PS5 and PS4 games that are also available in the Extra tier. While this collection is grand, please note that PS3 games are played through Cloud Streaming and cannot be downloaded. Consequently, their performance is dependent on the user's internet connection.

PS Plus Premium subscribers also have the option to stream games via the service's PC app. The library includes titles from both the Games and Classics Catalog, although it is not the full selection. Here are some things interested parties should know about this option:

  • The DualShock 4 is the only confirmed compatible controller . That does not mean other controllers will not work, just that they are not guaranteed by Sony.
  • PS Plus On PC is not currently available in every country that has the main streaming service.
  • PS5 games cannot be streamed.
  • A PS5 or PS4 is not needed to subscribe to PS Plus on PC.
  • Sony recommends a Broadband wired internet connection of a minimum of 5 Mbps ​​​​.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can PS Plus Premium Subscribers Stream PS5 Games?

PS Plus Premium's Cloud Streaming is compatible with the Games Catalog's PS4 games and all the titles found in the Classics Catalog. PS5 games cannot be streamed.

When Are New Games Added To PS Plus Premium & Extra?

Sony has not specified a fixed date of when subscribers can anticipate new additions to the library, but history suggests that games will be added roughly halfway through a month.

Can Subscribers Switch Tiers?

Yes. If someone wants to move up to a higher PS Plus tier, they only need to purchase a new membership at their desired level. This upgrade will happen instantly, and the customer will be charged a prorated fee for the rest of the current month.

If a member wishes to downgrade their tier, they would need to visit their Sony account's "Subscription" tab to perform the change. This alteration will come into effect once the next payment is made.

Can PS Plus Benefits Be Shared?

While limited to one PS5 or PS4 console, certain PS Plus benefits are shared among the different accounts on the system. These include online multiplayer, access to Premium & Extra's libraries, downloaded monthly games, and games purchased using a PS Plus discount.

Which PlayStation Plus should I Get?

Ultimately, this comes down to personal preference. If someone only intends to play PS5 and PS4 games, there is little reason to subscribe to Premium.

PS Plus Essential's free games for July 2023 cover quite a wide spectrum of genres and preferences. Alan Wake Remastered makes complete sense as a monthly freebie since its sequel is scheduled to debut in October 2023. Although its gameplay loop can be polarizing, Alan Wake tells an engaging story set within an unsettling, if not necessarily scary location. Surreal and atmospheric, Remedy's game was great in 2010 and the same can be said for its 2021 remaster. Subscribers who are not into multiplayer shooters might be tempted to outright dismiss Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, especially since it is fairly outdated by this point; however, the game has a pretty good, albeit short single-player campaign. Endling: Extinction is Forever is not as recognizable as either Black Ops Cold War or Alan Wake, but it is actually the highest-rated project of the bunch. In it, players take charge of a mother fox as she tries to survive alongside her children.

What Games Are On PlayStation Plus Extra & Premium?

  • Current as of June 29, 2023 .

Most subscribers will likely invest in PS Plus Extra as that tier contains more than enough PS5 and PS4 games to keep someone busy for a long time. Unless specifically interested in classic PS games or Cloud Streaming, there is not much reason to pick Premium over Extra. Still, subscribers of both tiers can download and install the following titles.

The games library can vary from country to country.
