A new report by Bloomberg says that Sony will reveal its new Game Pass-like subscription service next week for PlayStation. The service, long rumored and said to be codenamed "Spartacus," will allegedly combine Sony's two current subscription services: PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus. There will be different tiers that users can subscribe at.

The rumors about Spartacus date back all the way to the far-off time of 2021. From everything that has been said about this new service, one thing has remained the same: Sony will apparently not provide day 1 access to their first-party releases. This is an area where Microsoft and their Game Pass service will continue to hold a major benefit over Spartacus. The other being that Microsoft also releases their first-party offerings on PC on the same date as they do on Xbox.

According to Bloomberg's report, the most expensive tier will also give players to "extended demos and the ability to stream games over the internet." All tiers will offer access to "catalogs of modern games and classics from older PlayStation eras."
