Sony is apparently planning to announce a competitor to Game Pass next week
Sony is expected to launch its response to Xbox Game Pass, currently dubbed Spartacus, “as early as” next week. According to previous speculations, Spartacus may be a mashup of Sony’s two existing subscription services, PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now. According to Bloomberg, the service will begin with a selection of popular recent titles but may exclude the impending tentpole God of War: Ragnarok.
The service is intended to have three distinct tiers, each of which will provide a variety of games at varying pricing ranges. The first tier is likely to be fairly similar to the current PlayStation Plus membership, while higher levels will include PS4 and PS5 games (though the latter will arrive “in the future”), as well as “access to extended demonstrations and the option to stream games over the internet.”
