All-new PlayStation Plus Introduces three flexible options for members

Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia has today announced changes coming to PlayStation Plus in June, introducing a new tiered system that aims to provide customers with a high-quality portfolio of diverse games.

Australian players will have access to three tiers; Playstation Plus Essential, PlayStation Plus Extra, and PlayStation Plus Deluxe. The evolution of PlayStation Plus builds upon 25 years of expertise in gaming innovation with these changes highlighting PlayStation’s continued efforts to evolve its network services business to match customer preferences.

At launch, PlayStation plans to include titles such as Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, and Returnal. Additionally, PlayStation is working closely with first and third-party partners to include some of the best gaming experiences available with a library that will be regularly refreshed.

Below is an overview of the three membership tiers:

PlayStation Plus Essential


  • Provides the same benefits that PlayStation Plus members are getting today, such as:

    • Two monthly downloadable games

    • Exclusive discounts
