Frequently asked questions

PlayStation Plus now has three subscription plans with tiered pricing and features, letting you choose the plan that matches the way you play.

The PlayStation Plus features you know – like online multiplayer, monthly games and exclusive discounts – now make up the PlayStation Plus Essential membership plan. We’ve added a Game Catalog of PS4 and PS5 games to download as part of the PlayStation Plus Extra plan, while PlayStation Plus Deluxe gives you the Classics Catalog, limited-time trials for a selection of new games from PlayStation Store.

You can purchase a new subscription that will start when your existing plan ends – so if you’re eligible for an unmissable deal on a PlayStation Plus membership, you can take advantage of the special price and keep your membership active for longer. The new membership period will begin as soon as your current plan ends.

To upgrade your membership plan to PlayStation Plus Extra or Deluxe, you just need to purchase a membership at that level. You will pay a pro-rated fee to bring your payments to the level of your new plan for the remainder of the paid membership period.

To change from your current plan to a lower tier plan, sign-in to the account settings page for your account for PlayStation Network and choose the Subscriptions tab to manage your PlayStation Plus membership plan. Your membership will continue on a lower tier plan after the next payment date.
