A new trailer for PlayStation Plus details the benefits of the service on the PlayStation 4, including access to online multiplayer, top rated games for free and one annual fee for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. DRIVECLUB will be the first PlayStation Plus game for the PS4, available when the console launches in November.
Much like the PS3 and PS Vita service, the PS4 will also have a Instant Game Collection, with the first two games being DRIVECLUB and Resogun.
Cloud storage and discounts
In addition to the 2GB of cloud storage already available to PlayStation Plus users on the PS3 and PS Vita, PS4 owners will get an additional 1GB of storage for save data, brining the total to 3GB.
14 day trial
If you aren’t already a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you’ll be able to get a 14 day free trial to the service, which includes all the benefits of the full service. You’ll get instant access to all the features of the service, including the Instant Game Collection, cloud storage and immersive online multiplayer play.
PlayStation Plus will be required to play online games on the PS4, but it’s not needed for the PS3 or PS Vita, which will continue to function as normal.
Remote Play won’t require a PlayStation Plus subscription, except where the game you’re playing required one. E.g. you’ll be able to play Killzone: Shadow Fall on the PS Vita without a Plus subscription, but you’ll need one if you want to play online.
1 month membership
If you don’t want to sign-up to PlayStation Plus for a whole year (or even 90-days), a new monthly option will be available, priced at €6.99/£5.99 per month. You’ll be able to access all the features of PlayStation Plus for a month, and then either cancel your subscription or renew it. A one year membership to the Instant Game Collection costs just €49.99 / £39.99.
