Sony unveiled the revamped PlayStation Plus last month, and announced that the new service would be launching in most regions of the world sometime in June. Well, June is approaching, and ahead of its release, Sony has provided more details on how it’s planning on rolling out the service in different regions of the world.
For starters, if you’re in Asian markets (Japan not included), you’ll get access to the new PlayStation Plus a little earlier than the rest of the world, with Sony targeting a May 23 launch. For Japan, Sony is targeting a June 1 launch, June 13 for the Americas, and June 22 for Europe.
Meanwhile, Sony has added more countries to its list for providing access to cloud streaming and the PlayStation Plus Premium subscription tier. In addition to the previously announced locations, the following have also been added: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Republic of Cyprus, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
More details on the subscription service will be shared in the coming weeks, ahead of its launch- like what games its catalog will offer across its subscription tiers. The likes of God of War, Returnal, Death Stranding, and more have already been confirmed for PlayStation Plus Extra, while recent classification ratings have suggested that a bunch of Syphon Filter games will be included in the PlayStation Plus Premium lineup. Sony has also previously said that the service’s 700-game catalog will feature titles from all major publishers and will have “all the big names present”.
