According to a report by Bloomberg, Sony will reportedly unveil Project Spartacus for Playstation as early as next week. Project Spartacus is said to be a rival to Xbox Game Pass. Bloomberg originally reported the presence of this subscription-based service back in December.
Project Spartacus: What We Know
Project Spartacus for Playstation will combine both Playstation Plus and Playstation Now according to the Bloomberg report. It will have multiple tiers of modern games and classics from every Playstation era. In addition to that, the most expensive tier will give players access to various exclusive demos and the ability to stream games.
The presence of Project Spartacus will surely help Sony in many ways. Their main competitor, Microsoft has had success with Xbox’s Game Pass. You can get access to a catalog of hundreds of games for a mere price of $10. Player reception to the service has also been strong. While Sony has much more lucrative exclusive games they are lacking behind in the subscription service sector. So, with the addition of the new service, they definitely will benefit.
While Xbox Game Pass has various new releases available on day one, we might not see that with Spartacus. That means games like God of War: Ragnarok or Marvel’s Spiderman 2 are unlikely to appear on the service. Nevertheless, Project Spartacus surely looks like a good subscription-based service. We’ll have to wait and see how Sony presents it.
