The PlayStation Now lineup for March has been revealed, and it isn’t half bad.
PlayStation’s answer to Game Pass had a bumpy beginning, but has found its feet over the last year or so. Every month the service updates its catalogue of streamable or downloadable games, something that has made the service far more viable for gamers looking for a vast library of titles. Here is the full list of March games.
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider (until September 7th)
- Control (Leaves September 7th)
- Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
- NASCAR Heat 3
- Dead or Alive 5 Last Round
- Toukiden Kiwami
- Toukiden 2
- Nights of Azure
- Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the Moon
- Warriors All-Stars
- Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13
PlayStation Now Looks Like Good Value Right Now
The obvious standouts are Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Control, a game that’s been nominated for several awards at April’s BAFTA Games Awards. Both Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Control have limited timeframe availabilities, and are only available until September 7. It’s nice to see the service getting newer games that still have an audience. I never played Control, but I’ll check it out for the sake of a subscription, which now costs £8.99 ($9.99) per month, after being discounted earlier last year. So, there has never been a better time to jump into PS Now.
With the next-generation consoles on the way, Sony has confirmed that the service will be on the PS5. If PlayStation wants to contend with Games Pass, a service that’s trailblazing the future of gaming, making all PS Now titles downloadable is a must. If it’s true that both consoles will have extensive back-catalogues from previous console generations, the service could and hopefully will expand by a rapid rate in the coming years. I only hope that broadband coverage and the speeds it provides improves with it. After all, streaming can only be the future if we have the infrastructure to support it.
