PS Now gamers have new titles to check out in October
For anyone who was waiting to find out what would be added to the PS Now lineup this month, it looks like it was worth it.
Sony is providing some top first-party exclusive from the PS4, with a total of five games being added to the service.
The only downside to this is that a few have been removed, including Just Cause 4 and Watch Dogs 2.
But the inclusion of two PS4 first-party exclusives will no doubt go down well with gamers looking for something new to try.
As confirmed today by Sony, gamers on PS4 and PC can now stream Days Gone, MediEvil, Friday the 13th, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince and Rad.
So, not a bad start to the month for PlayStation Now gamers looking for something new to try.
Gamers should know that there are a few limitations in place, including the fact that Days Gone will be removed early next year.
PS Now subscribers have around three months to get everything they can out of it before it disappears from the lineup.
However, the other new additions do not have the same timer attached, meaning that they will be sticking around for some time.
You can find the official descriptions for each game listed below, courtesy of Sony:
Step into the dirt flecked shoes of former outlaw biker Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter trying to find a reason to live in a land surrounded by death. Scavenge through abandoned settlements for equipment to craft valuable items and weapons, or take your chances with other survivors trying to eke out a living through fair trade… or more violent means. With humanity ravaged by feral creatures known as Freakers, any mistake could be your last in your attempt to carve out a new life in the hostile Pacific Northwest high-desert.
Sword swinging, perilous puzzles and enchanting environments are brought back to life in this full remake of the original PlayStation action-adventure. Step into the bones of Sir Daniel Fortesque, an inept — and long-dead — knight accidentally resurrected by the evil sorcerer Zarok, 100 years after his embarrassing demise. With the kingdom of Gallowmere under threat by Zarok’s demon hordes, only the skeletal Sir Dan stands in his way. A second chance for the toothy grinned, undead adventurer is at hand — can you defeat Zarok and grant Sir Dan the honour he lost in the flesh?
Friday the 13th
This asymmetrical multiplayer title captures the heart-pounding terror of the iconic film franchise from which it takes its inspiration. Play hunter or hunted as up to seven Camp Crystal Lake counselors strive to use the tools to survive, escape or even try to take down Jason Voorhees, the man who cannot be killed. If you are randomly selected to play the killer instead, use unique abilities to track down and terrify those unfortunate enough to cross your path!
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince
Lush, fantasy-themed 2.5D puzzle platforming awaits as three heroes must pursue a wayward prince whose nightmares are becoming monstrous reality and terrorising the lands. To overcome the very real forces of darkness, you must juggle the abilities of each hero: conjure platforms with Amadeus the Wizard, strike distance targets with thief Zoya and fend off attackers at closer range as the knight Pontius. With cooperative multiplayer available both offline and online, team up to take on the challenge ahead and save the realm.
Developed by Double Fine Productions, Rad is a 3D action rogue-like set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice. Playing as a teenage protagonist, you must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. Go grab that sweet bat and help save the world… or what’s remaining of it anyway!
