The New PlayStation Plus Tiers Are Launching In Australia Today And Here’s Everything You Need To Know

The week has finally arrived. Months after first hearing about the new PlayStation Plus tiers, it’s Australians turn to transfer to the new three tier system. We understand that this is still a little bit confusing, so here’s absolutely everything you need to know about the new PlayStation Plus.

WHEN DO THE NEW PLAYSTATION PLUS TIERS LAUNCH IN AUSTRALIA?

This will be a phased roll out across two days. PlayStation Australia has said that Australians will start getting migrated over to PlayStation Plus Essential, PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Deluxe on Wednesday, June 22nd with all accounts expected to be finished rolling over on Thursday, June 23rd.

WHAT ARE THE NEW PLAYSTATION PLUS TIERS?

The new PlayStation Plus tiers are explained below:

  • PlayStation Plus Essential: No change to the regular PlayStation Plus. You’ll get access to online play as well as two free PS4 games and one free PS5 games every month as well as exclusive discounts
  • PlayStation Plus Extra: PlayStation Plus Extra includes the previous Essential tier benefits as well as a catalogue of over 400 downloadable PS4/PS5 games including the likes of Returnal, Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding, Marvel’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy, Spider-Man Miles Morales, Stray (when it launches), Demon Souls, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and more.
  • PlayStation Plus Deluxe: PlayStation Plus Deluxe includes the previous Essential/Extra benefits as well as a catalogue of classic PlayStation PS1/PSP/PS2 games including the likes of Ape Escape, Syphon Filter, Resident Evil Director’s Cut and more. These classic games now include different display options, the ability to rewind and some even include trophies. It also includes game trials for titles such as Horizon Forbidden West (five hours) and WWE 2k22.

HOW MUCH DO THE NEW PLAYSTATION PLUS TIERS COST FOR AUSTRALIA?

  • PlayStation Plus Essential
    • 1 Month – $11.95 AUD
    • 3 Months – $33.95 AUD
    • 12 Months – $79.95 AUD
  • PlayStation Plus Extra
    • 1 Month – $18.95 AUD
    • 3 Months – $54.95 AUD
    • 12 Months – $134.95 AUD
  • PlayStation Plus Deluxe
    • 1 Month – $21.95 AUD
    • 3 Months – $63.95 AUD
    • 12 Months – $154.95 AUD

HOW DO I UPGRADE TO PLAYSTATION PLUS EXTRA OR PLAYSTATION PLUS DELUXE?

If you’re currently a regular PlayStation Plus member, you’ll be automatically transferred over to PlayStation Plus Essential (no change). You’ll then have the opportunity to upgrade to either PlayStation Plus Extra or PlayStation Plus Deluxe, where you’ll need to pay the difference between the Essential membership and Extra/Deluxe. It seems as though you’ll need to pay the difference for the entirety of your months remaining (so somewhere between $7-10 a month). If you’re not currently a PlayStation Plus member you’ll just choose one of the new plans and pay the above fees.

WHY ISN’T AUSTRALIA GETTING PLAYSTATION PLUS PREMIUM AND WHAT ARE WE MISSING OUT ON?

Unfortunately, PlayStation is missing out on PlayStation Plus Premium at the moment which means we don’t get access to the PS3 games included. This is due to the fact that the PS3 is notoriously hard to emulate, so these games need to be streamed over the internet. PlayStation obviously doesn’t think that Australia is a good fit for streaming currently, but they’ve said that will be working on rolling this out to other regions.

WHICH GAMES ARE INCLUDED IN THE NEW PLAYSTATION PLUS EXTRA AND PLAYSTATION PLUS DELUXE TIERS?

Whilst we don’t have an exact list of games that will launch in Australia, we’re almost certain that the below list will be nearly identical.
