An upcoming subscription service codenamed "Spartacus" is said to be a blend of the company's current PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus and is expected to feature several tiers offering customers both the most recent games and titles from the PlayStation back catalog.
Sony is reportedly preparing to announce its video game subscription service for the PlayStation codenamed "Spartacus". According to Bloomberg, Sony's answer to Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass is about to be introduced later this week.
Previously, it was reported that the new subscription service might be a blend of the company's current PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus. As Bloomberg's sources claim, at launch, Spartacus will feature a lineup of the most recent games, although they noted that it will not include some of the upcoming biggest titles like God of War Ragnarök, for instance.
Although now, it is not clear how much the service will cost, it is expected to feature multiple tiers offering customers both a number of the most recent games and a range of titles from the PlayStation back catalog. It is said that the most expensive tier will provide customers with "access to extended demos and the ability to stream games over the internet".
Sony currently offers two subscription services: PlayStation Plus which costs $9.99/month and gives players access to multiplayer gaming, exclusive discounts, and several free games a month, and PlayStation Now ($9.99/month) which allows users to play a back catalog of PS2, PS3, and PS4 games. It's still unknown whether Sony intends to replace either or both services with its upcoming Spartacus.
