Fusion of the old PS Plus and PS Now, the new PlayStation Plus was installed in France on June 23, 2022. New formulas, enriched catalog: the Japanese manufacturer and publisher has done everything to please gamers and gamers.
You just gave yourself one of the few PS5s in circulation, you have already slipped away Forbidden Horizon West Y elden ring and you don’t know what to play? Do not panic, Sony has offered a second youth at your service PlayStation Pluswith a richer catalog of games and above all three formulas to cover all the expectations of the players.
What is PlayStation Plus?
Available from the PS3, PlayStation Plus is an essential subscription to get the most out of your console. Essential for online gaming, this subscription also allows you to get some games for free.
Since June 23, Playstation Plus has been merged with PS Now, a game streaming service, to renew itself and offer gamers a better choice in terms of entertainment. A paid service that now comes in three formulas, each with its own advantages, of which the Extra version is the most interesting.
An overflowing toy library
We primarily subscribe to an online gaming service for the quality of its library of games. A dimension in which Sony has not skimped since the Playstation Plus catalog contains more than 700 games.
Fan of Norse mythology? Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Where God of War they are part of it. Do you like open spaces? red dead redemption 2 Y death stranding allows you to wander for hours. Do you prefer a real challenge? blood borne Y the souls of the devil your blood pressure will rise rapidly.
Of course, AAA games aren’t the only ones finding a place in Sony’s catalogue, as there are a plethora of indie titles available as well. And treats on top of that, like hollow knighttouching it Heavenly or gore Blasphemous.
Absent from the first subscription level, the game catalog is only available from the Extra formula. That said, Playstation Plus Essential subscribers aren’t left out as they get access to the PlayStation Plus Collection, an option that lets you play some PS4 classics on the PS5 for free.
A clear interface
Enjoying an avalanche of games is fine, but you still have to get your bearings. Suddenly, Sony has split a readable interface for its Playstation Plus. Tiles and icons are large enough to be clearly visible.
You can easily see what options you have access to based on your subscription.
The “Games” tab located at the top of the screen gives you access to the entire catalog and especially to various filters so you don’t get lost in the labyrinth of the toy library.
There is also a section “Based on your game” to advise you on titles based on the latest games you have released.
In addition to many games, Playstation Plus gives access to many small advantages. Starting with being able to play multiplayer games online or that require an Internet connection.
Another good point, take advantage of discounts on a wide selection of games. Not to mention the games that are offered every month, like God of War, from Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker Y Nickelodeon Brawl Stars in June.
Finally, you also have access to 100 GB of cloud storage, so you can install many indie games there, for example, and thus leave the internal SSD to AAA games, which consume more resources.
What about Playstation Plus Premium?
The most expensive formula of the Playstation Plus is also that what we tried in our columns. In addition to all the above options, this package includes a selection of streaming games, which can be played from any PS4 or PS5, and even from a PC thanks to the dedicated application.

Added to this are game demos, to test certain titles in advance before buying them. Nostalgics will also be able to recall good memories with the help of the “Classics Catalog”, which includes games from PS1, PS2 and PS3.
The Extra formula: the best value for money
For both new PS5 buyers and enthusiasts who want to multiply their gaming experiences, the Playstation Plus Extra formula is the most logical choice.
It gives access to more than 700 games, enough to have fun for thousands of hours, for a price below 15 euros since it is offered in €13.99 per month.
The Essential package is the most accessible with a monthly fee set at 8.99 euros. For its part, the Premium subscription full of options is sold for 16.99 euros per month.
