Sony has announced target launch dates for the upcoming new and revamped PlayStation Plus, which will be adopting a three-tier subscription structure, with Essential tier offering the same old PS Plus service, while Premium offers access to a library of 700+ PlayStation games and a selection of other benefits.
“We’re making fantastic progress with our launch efforts and I wanted to update you on the latest,” Sony Interactive Entertainment President & CEO Jim Ryan writes in an update on the PS Blog. “We’re rolling out our new offering for PlayStation Plus a little earlier in select markets in Asia, followed by Japan.”
The all-new PlayStation Plus will be launching first in select Asian markets from 23rd May 2022, with Japan to swiftly follow just over a week later on 1st June. The Americas can then expect the service to roll out from 13th June, while Europe will be last on the schedule, with a target launch date of 22nd June 2022.
Cloud streaming will also expand to a total of 30 markets with the rollout of PlayStation Plus, with Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Republic of Cyprus, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia among the territories where PlayStation Plus Premium and cloud streaming will be available.
“We’ve been working on this massive global effort to provide flexible options, quality games and greater value for our members for quite some time now – and we’re just a few weeks away from our first regional rollout,” Ryan added.
