PlayStation owners have access to some of the best games in the world with subscriptions like PS Now and PlayStation Plus. 

With the reveal of next month's games right around the corner, we can't wait to see which games we'll be playing in May.


Here's all we know so far.

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 May's lineup?

May 2021 Confirmed Games

The confirmed games are as follows, and they'll all land on May 4:

  • Nioh
  • Jump Force (Until August 2, 2021)
  • Streets of Rage 4 (Until November 1, 2021)

So whether you fancy a Soulslike, an anime brawler, or a retro-style beat 'em up, you're covered this month.

PS Now May 2021 Release Date

The new games will release on PlayStation Now on Tuesday, May 4 2021. 


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