More PlayStation Now games

In its heyday, PlayStation Now had hundreds of games for you to get stuck into and download onto your PS4 and PS5, alongside the ability to stream them – though its services are now incorporated into the PS Plus subscription instead.

You can see the full list of PS Now games, including games from the PS2, PS3, and PS4 era, that were available before the service was discontinued.

PS Now was also available on your PC, allowing you to play a number of PS4 exclusives on your PC, without needing a PlayStation console in your house.

That was the PlayStation Now October 2021 lineup of free games that you could blast through before the subscription was canned in favor of PS Plus. If you’re hungry for more PlayStation goodness, check out the best PS5 games out there.
