In case you've been living under a rock, Sony announced back in March that a new PS Plus service would be launching. This major revamp to its existing subscription service will introduce 3 separate tiers, each coming at a different cost to gamers and offering different benefits.

The service is set to launch Down Under on 23 June. One feature of the service allows gamers to access a library of PlayStation games, new and old, to download and play at their leisure. In a blog post, Sony has unveiled a whole stack of games that will be available in each of the tiers at launch.

Let's take a look and break down what exactly it all means for you. For more PlayStation content, check out our review of the PlayStation 5.

New PS Plus tiers explained

First, let's give some context for each of the new PS Plus tiers. The cheapest tier is the Essential tier ($11.95 a month). This tier does not give gamers access to a library of downloadable games, instead offering 2 games to play each month, as well as features such as exclusive discounts and online multiplayer access.

The Extra tier ($18.95 a month) does grant players access to a whole library of games, Xbox Game Pass style. It also has all the benefits of the Essential tier. Meanwhile, the Deluxe tier ($21.95 a month) has all the benefits of the previous 2 tiers, plus access to a library of PS1, PS2 and PSP games. It will also feature time-limited game trials to enjoy before purchasing a game.

Let's see what games Sony is promising for the Extra and Deluxe tiers. Keep in mind this is only what will be available at launch. Sony has stated that a "refresh" of games will occur every month.

Which new PS Plus tier is right for you?

You now have a great amount of information to make up your mind as to which PS Plus tier you should choose. If you were eyeing the Essential tier, you'll have to decide if the Extra tier's games library is tempting enough to justify the extra $7 a month.

And if you thought the Deluxe tier was for you, you can now see whether the nostalgic power of the classic games library and the rather limited selection of game trials is worth an extra $3 a month.
