actually there really isnt' a need to force plus on ps users since star trek online doesn't require plus at all  for online

i've been playing STO for nearly 2 years since it launched on PSN/X1 while X1 requires it, PSN doesn't.   I just don't get why you would force users to pay extra for being online when you're not actually playing online against people. it's real shady business.  then again what else do you expect from EA.  and you guys actually think this is gonna have a bigger reception than mass effect? LMAOL don't make me laugh

Except for the fact that STO is F2P and Anthem isn't and it's Sony's policy that any synchronous online game other than F2P and subscription games require PS+ to play online. But hey, good to know you don't know the difference between EA and Sony ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What Sony says about PS+ for online multiplayer games.

Xbox Live Gold says needed for online multiplayer according to their chart at bottom of the page.

@Devaex2  It is possible to play solo just harder.  the only thing they said would absolutly require a group is strongholds but im sure some one will find a way to even solo those eventually players are good at that

From what it seems even just to play the game you'll need PS Plus, which is kinda messed up, I downloaded the Demo and wasted space cause it wouldn't even let me open the game app without PS Plus

I myself find it as a crappy business practice to force people to pay to play online for something you already paid for. I pay for my internet already as it is. This is why I don't use PlayStation. As for Xbox you can get free Xbox live by using bing. Either way it's crap they both force you to pay to play when they have nothing to do with any of it. This is one reason why so many people prefer PC over console.
