What is PS Now?

PS Now is a subscription service only available to PlayStation owners. 

This subscription gives you access to amazing games each month without the need to update or download them.

You can also purchase another subscription on PlayStation called "PlayStation Plus". This also gives you access to a separate library of games, but you will need to install them before you can play. 

So, which games can we expect to see in August's lineup?

What Are The August 2021 PS Now Games?

The best thing about PS Now is that there's no real rhyme or reason to the games chosen - but they're usually bangers. August's are no different.

  • Undertale
  • NieR: Automata
  • Ghostrunner

Unfortunately, PS Now games tend to be PS4 versions, even for cross-generational titles. Come on Sony, let us stream or download some PS5 games!

The new games will release on PlayStation Now on Tuesday 3 August, Sony said in this month's PlayStation Blog post.

Again, the date you have access to these games is dependent on your time zone, but everyone will get access at the same time.

PS Now Free Trial

If you haven’t tried PlayStation Now yet, Sony is giving players the option to enjoy a seven-day free trial* for PS4 and PS5 owners. 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 any new additions coming in August.
