Sony is set to reveal its answer to Xbox Game Pass, a subscription service codenamed Spartacus, Bloomberg reports (paywall).
The service will include a "splashy lineup of hit games," per Bloomberg's sources, and it will officially merge PlayStation Plus with Sony's cloud streaming service, PlayStation Now.
There will be multiple tiers of membership in the service, with each tier offering more bonuses alongside the higher price point. The first tier will include the benefits of PlayStation Plus, allowing for free monthly games and online play. The next more expensive tier will add in access to the Game Pass-style game library, and a third tier will add PlayStation 1, 2, 3 and Portable games to the available library. It will also add the ability to stream games and play extended demos.
In a major departure from the Game Pass model, Spartacus won't include high profile first-party PlayStation titles on launch day. God of War Ragnarok, for example, won't be made available through the service right away.
Sony is reportedly planning to reveal the service and its official name as soon as next week.
