Sony’s recently revamped PlayStation Plus service features three membership tiers (Essential, Extra and Premium).

The Essential tier offers the same benefits as the old PS Plus service, including ‘free’ PS4 and PS5 games every month, online multiplayer access and PS Store discounts.

The Extra and Premium tiers also include access to a catalog of 400 PS4 and PS5 games, which can be downloaded similar to Xbox Game Pass.
