All-new PS Plus Launches This Month in US and Europe
The all-new PlayStation Plus service, including the new game subscription tiers Extra and Premium, is launching on June 13 in the US, and June 23 in Europe. The new library of games will seemingly introduce a competitor for Game Pass, with some big name PS5 titles set to be included in the service right away, and a few third party titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and more.
What it won’t be is releasing any new games on the service for day one of release. This means you won’t be able to play God of War Ragnarok via PS Plus on launch day. But, if you’ve got the patience, you will still likely be able to play the game via the service around 1-2 years down the line.
First up, your Game Pass subscription must not currently be active – I repeat, you must not have an active Game Pass for this to work. Once you’re confident, proceed to the next step.
Next, you need to invest in up to 3-years worth of Xbox Live Gold. You can easily buy 12-month Xbox Live Gold codes from Amazon or other retailers, costing $60/£50 depending on your region.
I Recommend Stacking 2-Years of Xbox Live Gold
The maximum amount of stacking for Gold subscriptions is 36-months (costing $180), any more than that will be lost. So, to keep things safe for those who currently have a Gold membership, I recommend sticking to just 2-years’ worth (costing $120/£100).
Now, here’s the fun part. Once you’ve redeemed these codes and stacked your Xbox Live Gold membership up to your liking, you can then convert this time to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a 1:1 ratio.
Head to the Xbox Live Gold upgrade page and proceed to convert the time you’ve paid for directly into Game Pass Ultimate. If you’ve never used the upgrade feature before, this will cost $1/£1 (total cost coming to $121/£101). If you have used this before, it will instead cost you $14.99/£10.99 to upgrade.
Overall, at most, you’ll be paying only $135 for 2-years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (instead of $359). If you manage to pull off a 3-year conversion, at most you’ll be paying $195 instead (instead of $539). Now that’s a big discount. Once you’re done, just make sure you turn off auto renewal as well.
