In December, Bloomberg reported that Sony was preparing to announce a PlayStation subscription serving to compete against Xbox Game Pass. Internally called Project Spartacus, the rumoured service will, according to the aforementioned report and reports since then, combine PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus, and on top of their benefits, also offer a catalog of backward compatible titles, extended demos and trials, and the ability to stream across multiple tiers.
Now, it seems that service is on the verge of its reveal at long last. As reported by Bloomberg, Sony will be unveiling its Project Spartacus subscription service as early as next week, and that it will “debut with a splashy lineup of hit games from recent years”, though the exact details of that lineup, its tiers, and their prices current remain unknown.
Bloomberg’s report also claims, as many have expected, that Sony’s service will not offer major new releases on the day of their launch the way Xbox Game Pass does- so Spartacus subscribers shouldn’t expect to have access to the upcoming God of War Ragnarok at launch.
Stay tuned for more details in the days ahead.
