Free PlayStation Plus games will still continue to be offered every month after the service undergoes its revamp this summer, Sony has confirmed.

The new PlayStation Plus structure will launch for PS4 and PS5 in May in Asia (and June elsewhere) structured across three payment tiers: Essentials, Extra and Premium.

While the Essentials tier offers the same benefits as the current PS Plus service, Extra will include 400 downloadable PS4 and PS5 games, while Premium will include a further 340 PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP games (all of which are downloadable except PS3 games, which will be streaming-only).

Premium will also offer cloud streaming access for original PlayStation, PS2, PSP and PS4 games offered in the Extra and Premium tiers in markets where PlayStation Now is currently available.
