PlayStation Now is Sony’s cloud gaming subscription service, which is designed for fans of the PlayStation family’s huge gaming catalog. Not to be confused with the PlayStation Plus membership club (which has its own separate library of playable titles), PlayStation Now allows users to stream and/or download a vast number of PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 games on either their PS4 or laptops.
In terms of pricing, PlayStation has revealed that monthly membership is now $9.99, while quarterly membership is $24.99 and yearly membership is $59.99. For reference, monthly used to set you back $19.99 and yearly was an eye-watering $99.99. It’s a substantial discount that could bring more of a playerbase to the service. Certainly, PlayStation is now more competitive with Xbox Game Pass at this price point.
Each month, new games are added to the PlayStation Now library. Here’s what’s available this month:
PlayStation Now – June 2020
Three major new games are coming to PS Now starting on January 2. Here’s what we’ve got…
“Loaded with suspense and action, 4A Games’ return to the nuclear wastelands of post-apocalyptic Russia shouldn’t be missed. Multiple dangers await you in this gripping, story-driven first-person adventure: Mutated monsters. Aggressive human factions. Deadly radiation. Yet all need to be fought as you flee Moscow and journey across the vast wilderness in a continent-spanning search for a safe haven in the East.”
Available to download (PS4 system only) and stream until Tuesday, November 30, 2020
“Arkane Studios returns with another supernatural slice of first-person stealth action in this fantastic sequel. Whether you choose to play as Empress Emily Kaldwin or royal protector Corvo Attano, you will need to combine their unique set of powers, weapons, and gadgets to eliminate their enemies in a quest to strike back against an otherworldly usurper. With a world whose perception of you is shaped by your actions within it, you need to think hard about every choice you make.”
NASCAR Heat 4
“Whether you’re just curious about stock car racing or an ardent fan, the officially licensed thrills of NASCAR Heat 4 is a fine representation of the sport. Long-time franchise developer Monster Games has perfected its craft and presents drivers with a wealth of modes to prove their driving skills in, including a robust career, tricky challenges, and tense multiplayer clashes.”
