Aside from the free 30 days subscription plus one day for everyday SOE remains offline, the company has outlined specific game goodies as a 'sorry' to users.
"In light of the recent outage of Sony Online Entertainment's game services due to April's cyber-attack, we are committed to compensating our loyal player base for the inconvenience caused by the data breach and lost game time while we improve our security measures," said a Sony Online Entertainment statement.
