In letter : Each month, Sony adds a new bundle of games to PlayStation Now. This month’s highlight is the award-winning The Last of Us Part II, but other notable games are also coming to the platform, including Fallout 76 and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, among others.
Starting today, PlayStation Now subscribers will be allowed to play The Last of Us Part II, a PlayStation exclusive, on their PlayStation and PC consoles until January 3, 2022. If you’d rather own the game instead of Stream it, it’s available at a discount on the PS Store as part of the Blockbuster Games sale, ending October 13.
Although the game sparked some controversy among fans, The Last of Us Part II was among the best games of 2020 with the average critics score being 93/100. If you own a PlayStation 5 console, you should know that the game has received a performance patch that allows you to choose between 30 FPS or 60 FPS as the framerate target.
However, the October lineup has other great titles to try out as well. One is Fallout 76, Bethesda’s take on a multiplayer-only Fallout game. At launch, the game was in a tough spot, lacking basic elements from other franchise entries, but after a series of fixes and DLC things have improved to an acceptable state.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is also on the lineup for this month. Like most games from 1999, it hasn’t aged well graphically, but the Remastered Edition provides a well-deserved visual upgrade to one of the best Final Fantasy games in the series.
Other games coming to the PlayStation Now platform include Desperados III, Amnesia: Collection, Yet Another Zombie Defense, and Victor Vran: Overkill Edition.
If you’re not a PlayStation Now subscriber, be aware that a one-month subscription costs $ 9.99. A three-month subscription will cost you $ 24.99 and a one-year subscription costs $ 59.99.
