A PlayStation Game Pass competitor is expected to arrive next spring

According to a new Bloomberg storey, the service is expected to integrate PS Plus and PS Now, citing people within the firm as well as papers they’ve seen.

Spartacus, a PlayStation Game Pass competitor, is rumored to be launching next Spring.

Highlights

  • The report also claims that the new service will offer a three-tier service, with the first tier offering current PS Plus benefits, another offering PS4 and eventually PS5 games, and the final one providing access to “extended demos, game streaming and a library of classic PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP games.”

  • For context, PlayStation Plus allows players to play games online as well as redeem a monthly selection of games, whereas PlayStation Now is already similar to Xbox Game Pass in that it provides players with immediate access to a selection of games to play, though PS Now does not follow Xbox Game Pass’s lead of publishing first-party titles on the same day they go on sale.
