Perhaps some people were thinking that there hadn’t been any headline games coming to Sony’s PlayStation Now streaming service, but with this October lineup for PS Now, I think those concerns have been answered. Okay, so the game in question here might have had a bit of controversy surrounding it in the past, but in terms of headline status, The Last of Us Part II is pretty up there.
The Last of Us Part II is but one of seven (count them, seven) games coming to PlayStation Now in the month of October. Joining it are Fallout 76, Desperados III, the Amnesia: Collection, Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, Yet Another Zombie Defense, and finally, Victor Vran: Overkill Edition. Some of those games on that list need no introduction, but boy does PlayStation Now’s October lineup serve up a feast of games to try out.
The Last of Us Part II on PS Now will reunite the sequel with its original, with The Last of Us (the original PS3 version, not the remastered PS4 version) also being present on Sony’s streaming service. There is currently a new free trial of the service for users who may have been subscribed to PS Now before, and news like this is great for people contemplating jumping on board, either for the first time or after a hiatus.
What do you think of PlayStation Now’s October lineup? Does the addition of Fallout 76 or The Last of Us Part II do anything to convince you to give PS Now a go if you haven’t already? Out of all the 800+ games on the service, which ones have you been playing more often than others? And can PS Now compete with the likes of Google Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now? Or even Xbox Game Pass? Leave us a comment down below with your thoughts.
