Days Gone

Days Gone, MediEvil, Friday the 13th headline PS Now’s October lineup

Step into the dirt flecked shoes of former outlaw biker Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter trying to find a reason to live in a land surrounded by death. Scavenge through abandoned settlements for equipment to craft valuable items and weapons, or take your chances with other survivors trying to eke out a living through fair trade… or more violent means. With humanity ravaged by feral creatures known as Freakers, any mistake could be your last in your attempt to carve out a new life in the hostile Pacific Northwest high-desert.

Update: Days Gone availability date revised to January 4, 2021

Days Gone is available until January 5, 2021 

MediEvil 

Days Gone, MediEvil, Friday the 13th headline PS Now’s October lineup

Sword swinging, perilous puzzles and enchanting environments are brought back to life in this full remake of the original PlayStation action-adventure. Step into the bones of Sir Daniel Fortesque, an inept — and long-dead — knight accidentally resurrected by the evil sorcerer Zarok, 100 years after his embarrassing demise. With the kingdom of Gallowmere under threat by Zarok’s demon hordes, only the skeletal Sir Dan stands in his way. A second chance for the toothy grinned, undead adventurer is at hand — can you defeat Zarok and grant Sir Dan the honour he lost in the flesh?

Friday the 13th

This asymmetrical multiplayer title captures the heart-pounding terror of the iconic film franchise from which it takes its inspiration. Play hunter or hunted as up to seven Camp Crystal Lake counselors strive to use the tools to survive, escape or even try to take down Jason Voorhees, the man who cannot be killed. If you are randomly selected to play the killer instead, use unique abilities to track down and terrify those unfortunate enough to cross your path!

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince

Days Gone, MediEvil, Friday the 13th headline PS Now’s October lineup

Lush, fantasy-themed 2.5D puzzle platforming awaits as three heroes must pursue a wayward prince whose nightmares are becoming monstrous reality and terrorising the lands. To overcome the very real forces of darkness, you must juggle the abilities of each hero: conjure platforms with Amadeus the Wizard, strike distance targets with thief Zoya and fend off attackers at closer range as the knight Pontius. With cooperative multiplayer available both offline and online, team up to take on the challenge ahead and save the realm.

Rad

Days Gone, MediEvil, Friday the 13th headline PS Now’s October lineup

Developed by Double Fine Productions, Rad is a 3D action rogue-like set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice. Playing as a teenage protagonist, you must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. Go grab that sweet bat and help save the world… or what’s remaining of it anyway!

  • Why is Days Gone a temporary game? It’s a PS exclusive that’s been out for a year and a half and sells for like $20. I’m not saying that brand new exclusives need to be on PS Now day one. But theres no reason why two year old games arent permanently added to the service.

    Same goes for:
    Jak & Daxter, Jak 2, Jak 3, Jak X, Ratchet & Clank Collection and Deadlocked, PS All Stars Battle Royale, Twisted Metal Black, Gran Turismo 5, 6, and Gran Turismo Sport, The Order: 1886, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Uncharted 4 & Lost Legacy, The Last of Us: Remastered, inFamous Second Son/First Light, Horizon: Zero Dawn, PaRappa The Rapper, PaRappa 2, Patapon.

    This is a PLAYSTATION SERVICE. And yet there are dozens of OLD PLAYSTATION games that aren’t there. It makes no sense. Please do better.

    • Do you just copy and paste your reply each month?

    • Yeah I dunno why they do that either. They did the same thing with Horizon Zero Dawn and Spider-Man. It kinda sucks. I don’t understand it.

    • Not only that. But if PS Now is the only way we can play PSOne, PS2, and PS3 games next gen (which I don’t have an issue with) then you guys need to add A LOT more classic games to the service. There are over 300 PSOne and PS2 games on the PS3 PS Store. And based on the way PS Now works, any digital game that’s on the PS Store can be added to PS Now. If you worked out a deal with the publisher and what not. Beyond adding a bunch of classic games, there are a few improvements the service needs.

      1. All older exclusives should be on the service permanently PS2, PS3, & most PS4
      2. PS Now on more devices
      3. 1080p/60fps
      4. More PS4 versions of PS3 games.
      5. More franchises

      PS Now can be a killer app if it was treated as such.

    • @Alex This wasnt copy/pasted but thanks for your concern :)

    • It’s because PS Now is more or less of a scam. Most of the games on it are bad and wouldn’t last you 6 months. To sell subs, they put the AAA games on for 3 months and then remove them so that you are now stuck with a sub for mostly average at best games and the AAA title companies can go back to selling their games.

    • You have 3 solid months to play it , that’s a fair amount of time to beat that game imo

    • I agree. Any first-party game that is over 2 years old should be highly considered for PERMANENT inclusion.

      Also, good suggestion on working out deals with publishers for older PS1/PS2/PS3 games that customers are clamoring for. There’s a virtual gold mine of games that are being ignored, I’m sure the publishers and developers would appreciate getting more eyes on their older games, and at the same time getting more greenbacks in their wallets.

    • I don’t get it either you would think they would want to have as much quality stuff on there as possible But they keep outdated sports games that nobody plays up.its so backwards

    • Days Gone, have less than 4 months to finish it. Very Doable.

    • @Kishnabe I already own the game. And whether ir not people can finish the game in 4 months isnt the point. The point is, PS exclusives shouldn’t be removed from the PS service. You dont see xbox removing their exclusives from GP.

    • Does anyone ever think there might be a reason these AAA Exclusives are only on there for a short time? Most likely they need permission from the Developer to even host them on the service.

      Then the devs may want people to buy their games. So if it is on the service forever then people won’t need to buy the game. So those that do allow it only let it be on there for a short time.

  • Nice, Days Gone is one of the best exclusives of the generation and anyone who’s not played it is in for a treat, and I have been wanting to try RAD for a while.

  • Days Gone (already own) and MediEvil are a pretty big deal. And Rad looks rad. =)

  • Bit of a meh month imo. Days Gone just got announced as a PS Plus Collection game, Medievil has Plus written all over it, and Friday The 13th, that’s probably the worst add ever, most will have that from PS Plus, the game is dead and the game isn’t good.

  • That’s a really good lineup this month.

  • Excellent month for Now, and goes right with spooky season.

  • Great games but were are the old games from ps1 to ps3? So many amazing games. Can you add them too please. Does sony even read or answer any of these comments?

  • Firstly the big question. Is PS Now available on PS5?

    Secondly why are you trying to force me to chose between Now and Plus. The overlap on these services is now becoming ridiculous. I’d rather you focus Now on delivering classic PS3 games at this point given the lack of backwards compatibility and leave PS4 to Plus. I’d love to see the Final Fantasy XIII games on Now for example as most of the others have been released on PS4.

    • I agree. PS Now will be on PS5. So they might as well turn PS Now into a backwards compatibility service. Add the best PS1-PS3 games since we cant play them on modern machines.

      There are so many franchises and games from those generations that we cant play now, that we would be able to play if it were on PS Now.

  • Not sure if this is the place to suggest games for PS NOW. My family loved the game “Maximo™: Ghosts To Glory”. Any chance to have that added to PS NOW ?

  • Any chance we could get more of the games on PS Now to be downloadable? I have a great connection for online games, but it never seems to handle streaming PS Now games. If all games on there were downloadable, it would be amazing.

    • Anything PS4 is downloadable. Only ps3 games you can’t as new hardware is incapable of playing those cutting edge games.

    • Every game except the ones for PS3 are downloadable. Every game added for the past six months have been downloadable. Not sure what more you want?

    • Try using a wired connection. If you HAVE to use wifi, make sure it’s on a 5ghtz connection

  • I hope this is like previous months where the blog simply fails to list all the games because it’s bad ever since the merger.

    While I was happy for Days Gone and Medievil, I also wanted to try Princess Madelyn.

  • Is there any logical reason they don’t let PS Now subscribers download the PS3 games to their PS3s? I’d much prefer to download and play a PS3 game on the original hardware than stream it on PS4.

    • Ps Now was removed from the Vita and PS3 in case you played PS4 games on those platforms. They really didn’t want that.

    • @adumr82 PS Now works on PC, so it has nothing to do with not wanting people to play it on older or other hardware. It’s just cheaper to focus on fewer platforms, as there are fewer variables to consider when releasing updates and maintaining the system. Sony in a nutshell pretty much, do the bare minimum, and expect their customers to pay a premium.

    • @flipkick661 I suppose you believe its a technical impossibility to use a Dualshock 4 with the PS5 too because Sony told you so?
      PC gave them exposure to new customers , PS3 and was about their existing customers not going “Why do I need to upgrade when I can play PS4 games on this?”
      Hence the timing.

    • @adumr82 PS5 games require the DualSense controller, so devs can focus on implementing features to the unique piece of hardware, that Sony probably spent a small fortune R&D’ing.
      Going back to the actual topic at hand, playing PS4 games through Now on PS3 would never be as good of an experience as on local hardware. Having the service on there could even entice some people to make the jump to the newer console, so they can run the games better. I still believe it is down to the cost of maintaining the app accross several platforms. One little change on the backend requires extensive testing on each platform, and Sony simply don’t see the point of spending time and money on what they see as a dead platform. Same reason why the feature was removed from the PS Vita.

  • That’s a good list of games.

    Sony seriously needs to work on expanding the range of devices to smart TVs, streaming media players, and mobile phones. I’ve been seeing several news articles about “the future of video game subscription services”, and the services most frequently cited are Stadia, Xcloud, and Amazon’s upcoming Luna service. In these articles, PlayStation Now is usually ignored altogether, or relegated to a mere footnote. Much of this has to do with the lack of availability on those devices, along with the fact that streaming quality is still capped at 720p.

    If PS Now is to reenter the conversation, then it is imperative that Sony push out these long-requested service updates ASAP. They could also do a much better job of promoting PS Now to the video game new media.

    Also, instead of updating only once per month near the beginning of the month, consider introducing games on a WEEKLY basis. Just spread out the schedule. This will keep PS Now buzzing as a topic of discussion among gamers, instead of a passing glance and then forgotten about for another 29 days.

  • This games push me the idea to buy an xbox and gamepass, I’m just waiting my subscription ends

  • Once again, repeated games on Plus and Now subscriptions, ugh… This feels like a slap in the face for loyal customers who subscribe to both services.

    There’s so much potential to have amazing services, but Sony has become complacent and is letting the competitors offer much better value, sadly. A loss in market share would be eye-opening for Sony.

    As a Playstation fan who had never thought about playing games from other console competitors, these last few weeks (and the lack of transparency regarding next-gen features) have been very revealing. I won’t completely jump ship for now, but my gaming money, which would’ve gone 100% to Sony, will now be divided between Sony and the biggest competitor.

  • Days Gone and MediEvil are two games I’ll happily play this month, thanks!

  • Anyone that is interested in any of this or anything you ever add has already payed it all. Waiting 2 years plus to add games that are 20 bucks or less is stupid. Sony needs to take a page out of the Game Pass book and then maybe they might get somewhere.

  • Only one I already have from plus this month, pretty nice!

  • Why did you stop adding PS3 games?

  • Could you please add ps now to center America

  • very nice … BUT … when are we getting an android, ios app , and one for Mac … right now the Xbox game pass is looking far better, which is not good.

    • Gamepass isn’t on iOS, and I’m pretty sure it’s for the same reasons that we haven’t seen PS Now on mobile devices yet. Sony just don’t want to release Now on Android only, and they’re too spineless to take up the fight with Apple. Hopefully MS and Google will manage to make Apple change their policy, at that point I’m sure Sony will be in a hurry to get on mobile platforms.

  • Trine 4 and Rad missing from library..why?

  • At some point can you stop with those silly adverts on the PS4 dashboard?

    If you want to show ads, then make Plus free, ads don’t belong on a paid for device/platform.

    Or just add “disallow ads on the dashboard” to the options.

  • I’ve closed and opened psnow for pc, but the new games are not under “What’s new”. Does anyone else have this problem are they not available yet.

  • I know a lot of people are bringing up lack of older games, but keep in mind they have to pay for every non Sony release.
    Right now every game is hot and for the pickings for other stream sites. They have more titles compared to xbox’s service, and are releasing A+
    with high sales with a year after release now. It’s wonder for me, and the came down on price. It will only get better with time.

  • Looking forward to days gone. Let’s see if its fun.

  • Can’t wait to play days gone! And want to try medievil. Good month for me

  • Alright, so I got it to refresh the new games after downloading the app again. They have 6th new game that’s thq atv// motobike game.

  • Days Gone, Trine 4 and MediEvil. I waited for all these games, great month.

  • Seria muito bom, ter o Now no Brasil.
    Mas uma Pena para a Sony não estar interessada no mercado Brasileiro.

  • New store coming soon wave bye to ps3 and vita games being sold anywhere but on the vita and ps3 console

  • I’m not sure if I will rejoin ps now when my sub expires. Not much of a lineup for ps4 games either I don’t like them or already played. I did try days gone the other night seems decent so far. I just feel that the quality of games is not that good especially if your someone like me who has an Xbox one with gamepass its clearly has much much better quality games. And all exclusives day one with a sub. Would think about that.

  • I really hope this gets replied to, what I would like to know is, since Australia has such bad internet there’s no way for Australians to use playstation now without jumping through a lot of hoops and even then can only download games, they can’t stream them, now that the Australian government has now agreed to roll out much faster internet for Australia, does that mean Australians will get PlayStation now really soon? I hope so, I have been wanting to play metal gear solid 4 for a very long time, I hope we don’t have to wait much longer, i really hope it’s soon

  • Trying to play multiplayer online private or regular with friends on PC. (We’re all on PC)

    Don’t understand the invitation system.

    Tried this with Friday the 13th and WWE2K19. We received our invites on the my.PlayStation website but nothing in game even though invites are sent in game.

    Can anyone explain how this works? Does it work? Are there games it does work on for exclusively PC player use? (Non PS4/5 owners.)

    Appreciate it. 👍

  • Can you play friday the 13th ? I can´t find servers.
