Playing Call of Duty, Destiny and other multiplayer games on PS4 is getting pricier.

Online gaming on PS4 is about to take even more money out of your wallet.

Sony has announced its PlayStation Plus service is getting a price hike, with the ramped up prices rolling out at the end of the month.

In an email to Kiwi gamers, Sony announced the new pricing.

The quickfire quiz That's You! is among games PS Plus subscribers get access to as part of their subscription.

The cost of a three month subscription will increase from $32.95 to $39.95, and the cost of a monthly subscription will change from $11.95 to $12.95 per month, Sony stated in the email to fans. Annually, the price remains $89.95 per year.

"We will alter the price of a PlayStation Plus membership at 11:01 NZST on 31 August 2017," Sony continued. 

Subscriptions can be purchased at the current price up until then.

Gamers wanting to cancel will need to disable the auto-renew at least 48 hours before their next payment on or after August 31 is due.

This isn't the first PS Plus price rise to hit NZ.

In 2015, the price of a three month subscription went up as well, NZ Gamer reported.

It went from $24.95 to $32.95 at the time.

The NZ price rise comes as Sony adjusts PS Plus pricing throughout many European markets.

In some areas, subscription costs are rising as much as 25 per cent.
