Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced PlayStation Now adds Marvel’s Avengers, Borderlands 3, and The Long Dark to their lineup this month.
All three games will be available on PlayStation Now across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 beginning April 6th.
Here’s a rundown on the games:
Marvel’s Avengers – available until Monday July 5, 2021
Marvel’s Avengers is an epic, third-person, action-adventure game that combines an original, cinematic story with single-player and co-operative gameplay. In a future with Super Heroes outlawed, a young Kamala Khan must reassemble the Avengers to stop AIM. Marvel’s Avengers continues the epic journey with new Heroes and new narrative delivered on an ongoing basis, for the definitive Avengers gaming experience. Assemble into a team of up to four players online, master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, and defend the Earth from escalating threats.
Borderlands 3 – available until Wednesday September 29, 2021.
The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and a mayhem-fueled adventure! Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four new Vault Hunters, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or with friends to take on insane enemies, score loads of loot and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy. Play with anyone at any time online or in split-screen co-op, regardless of your level or mission progress.
The Long Dark
The Long Dark is a thoughtful, exploration-survival experience that challenges solo players to think for themselves as they explore an expansive frozen wilderness in the aftermath of a geomagnetic disaster. There are no zombies — only you, the cold, and all the threats Mother Nature can muster.
PlayStation Now Trial
If you haven’t tried PlayStation Now yet, now’s the perfect time to give it a spin with the seven-day free trial* for PS4 and PS5. The trial is available starting Wednesday, April 7 and is open to anyone who is currently not subscribed to PlayStation Now. That gives you access to stream hundreds of PS4, PS3 and PS2 games on demand… including the new additions above that join the lineup on Tuesday, April 6!
In related news, it’s worth pointing out that unlike Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass (and its Xbox Cloud Gaming component), PlayStation Now will never be adding Sony’s own first-party titles to their streaming platform, whereas all Microsoft Studios-published games will launch day one on Xbox Game Pass.
