PlayStation Now for January highlighted by Prey, God Eater 2, and Metro 2033
Sony has announced the newest batch of games to join their game streaming service, Playstation Now.
Playstation 4 and Playstation 3 games continue to be part of the bundle, with seven PS4 games and two titles for the PS3. Headlining the bundle is an interesting mix of genres, with a decidedly eerie bend to the themes. The big additions this month are pretty cool, and very spooky. There’s Prey, wherein players battle their way through mysterious gooey aliens onboard a space station. There’s plenty of futuristic weaponry and action in this very tense adventure.
Then there’s Metro 2033 Redux, which is essentially the Definitive Edition of Metro 2033. This version features much-improved gameplay and visuals over the original, as well as a redone lighting and weather system which really makes the journey through post-apocalyptic Russia intense and atmospheric. Speaking of the Metro series, the newest entry is due out soon with Metro: Exodus, and that version of the game even sports a photo mode, in case you want to capture some new memories with groups of mutants, fascists and plague-infested subway tunnels.
Project Cars 2 rounds out the big names for this batch of games. With more than 140 tracks across the globe, and dozens of vehicles, this is probably one of the more comprehensive racing sims out there right now. And if you want to enjoy it through the PS Now streaming service, now you can.
Here’s this month’s full lineup of new titles:
- Chess Ultra (PS4)
- God Eater 2: Rage Burst (PS4)
- Lock’s Quest (PS4)
- Metro 2033 Redux (PS4)
- Onechanbara Z2: Chaos (PS4)
- Prey (PS4)
- Project Cars 2 (PS4)
- Skydrift (PS3)
- Thunder Wolves (PS3)
Sony also included a list of some of the most popular titles on the service, and the leaders aren’t really a shock, given how good some of these games are. In December 2018, players mostly focused on popular AAA titles like Mafia III and Red Dead Redemption, while also spending time with sports titles like WWE 2K16 and NBA 2K16.
This latest set of additions pushes the total number of titles in the PS Now library to over 700 entries. This also means that PS4 owners can now stream 275+ games directly to their consoles without fully downloading them, saving a ton of time while getting access to some great games.
