All new PlayStation Plus membership benefits and tiers

PlayStation Plus has added two more tiers to its service, giving players three flexible options to choose from.

PlayStation Plus was first launched in 2010 with the idea of ​​changing the way gamers played games with a subscription service. For the first time since then, PlayStation is now adding extra tiers to its subscription to give gamers more games to play. These extra tiers first rolled out in Asia at the end of May and have now been released in the United States. The next countries to receive the new tiers are Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, which will get access on June 23.

PlayStation Plus Essential

The Essential tier is exactly what PlayStation Plus offered before the expansion. It lets gamers download two games monthly, offers exclusive discounts, has cloud storage for saved games, and gives gamers online multiplayer access. There were no additions or changes to the Essential tier, giving players the option to keep what they already had.
