What happens when you cancel your PlayStation Plus subscription?

Most of the benefits you enjoy from PlayStation Plus are lost once you cancel your subscription. However, you will have access to all your subscription benefits, such as monthly games, online storage, and online multiplayer, until the end of any previously purchased subscription payment period. Once that date arrives, the benefits will end, and you will lose access to all those perks.

As for the library of games you get to download and play with PlayStation Plus, any content you previously downloaded for free as part of the subscription will no longer be available. You’ll have to pay for those games if you want to continue playing them. However, redeemed PlayStation Plus packs, avatars, and anything purchased with the PlayStation Plus members are yours to keep.
