Victor Vran: Overkill Edition*

Battle demons in this isometric action RPG, using loot and different weapon types – from revolvers to guitars – to build your preferred combat style and forge your own hero. And if you’d prefer not to go it alone, the game offers four-player online and two-player local co-op. There’s also whole worlds to explore and fight your way through that are inspired by legendary band Motörhead, with Lemmy & co also lending a few of their tracks to the game’s soundtrack.

Yet Another Zombie Defense HD

Survive undead waves night after night alone or with up to three friends in this top-down arcade zombie shooter with tactical/strategy elements. Prepare yourself before the night falls – build some defensive barricades, buy guns and ammo, set up turrets and stay alive as long as you can. Each night puts your skills to the test, as darkness forces become stronger with each wave. The game offers three different modes – Defense, Endless, and Deathmatch.

*Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is already available in the PS Now library in Europe.

  • Not bad, although I already bought Another Zombie Defense but still good!

  • OMG! This is great!! I Waited this moment to come, And it’s finally here. THE LAST OF US PART 2!

    • Enjoy, one of my favourite games the past years, loved the story :)

    • Yeah, def a great game. I’d say the story ending was pretty damn ungratifying and left the game feeling slightly shallow, but the story along the way is great and the gameplay issues of the first game are all refined. Now it has the smoothness of Uncharted with the more stressful gameplay of Last of Us. I’d say LoU2 gameplay far surpasses Uncharted, but I haven’t played Lost Legacy.

  • Great lineup! 😀

  • Nice! But PS Now is not available in my country. A country of 200+ million people. 🤦‍♂️

    • PS never been fair , they enjoying plus they complainig while we dont. Planet earth is not fair , life is not fair. Thats the way it is. Now when those games coming for ps plus , ps now users they will complain
      Cant wait to see Nier TLOU2 Marvel Avengers Judgment Rage 2 on Ps plus next year

    • Playstation Now doesn’t release in other countries because they like to see disappointment in gamers’ faces. That’s why they charge $70, give junk for ps plus games, charge $10 to ‘upgrade’ to the same game on another console, have absolutely no communication to their fans, delay every major game that they promised would release much sooner, supremely long wait for meaningful system updates, their reliance on remasters, (that most people don’t want) to fill the gap for their major releases, the CEO’s comments and actions, etc.

    • @bs4mykneemiss, game costs are up and have been up for yers plus inflation PS Plus is optional and you can skip it, it’s not the same game bc you can play the same game if you want free and w/o upgrade – upgrade means framerate/resolution/graphics and it includes workhours, they are hearing us and the most recent example is CBOMB on PS4 and how it was solved with system software 9. There you go, the attention you so much needed for the lies you spread.

    • Game costs are up only for Playstation. PC, Xbox, Switch, and mobile are the same price, if not cheaper.

      Nearly everything in the world is optional, what’s your point?

      It IS the same game.

      They are NOT hearing is.

      It’s great that you’ve been reading my comments and have been itching to get a reply in to me. Just chill out. I’m not going to be the only person that pisses you off because of a difference in opinion.

      About those lies… Where?

    • is = us. And you know this, …

    • PS Now is also not avaible in my country. I hope PS Now will gonna expand soon.

      @bs4mykneemiss I’ve checked example Call of Duty: Vanguard on Xbox shop and PS store, same prices. I’m also disappointment of some Sony’s decisions but i’m trying to not repeat information without confirmation.

      In case of example gamepass so i’ve tried and not found titles for me so i cancel subscription. I would like to check PS Now in my country without any kind of bypass.

    • @bs4mykneemiss $70 isn’t unique to PS. This is also the new standard on XB. Games have been $60 for about 15 years. 15 years ago $60 would be about $81.60 today, based on a quick inflation check. Game cost has been falling for a surprisingly long time. $70 is still relatively cheaper than what we paid for games in early PS3/XB360 era. No one is to blame for inflation. It affects everything you buy, which is why you don’t get a burger with fries and a coke for 5 cents anymore. Considering you jumped to the conclusion that Sony was to blame for this, I’d recommend re-evaluation of some of the other wild assumptions you are making. You are letting your imagination piss you off for no reason. Life is short. Go be happy guy!

    • Klee – you’re forgetting about DLC, remasters, deluxe & ultimate editions, and other merchandise. That’s your inflation + more right there. Not all companies are releasing $70 games – look at RE:village & others. Have you even checked to see how much money these companies are gaining year-over-year? They ain’t losing money.

      No, you need to check yourself.

    • I didnt forget. There are various models to sustain costs of ongoing support for games, and to simply increase profitability in more “ambitious” cases. These should be considered by game and publisher, not by the platforms those games release on.

      It seems like you are fixated on the worst case examples of monetization and the irritation is distracting you from the more typical examples and best case examples that this $70 tag is intended to help. Keep in mind some games have no extra costs at all. Sony and XB needs to allow $70 cost so that we dont find more and more games having to resort to these frustrating monetization schemes that were likely only exacerbated by the decreasingly valuable $60 tag. Imagine if games were still $60 on PS6! Microtransactions and the like would be everywhere, and of course year over year gains would still be improving, because people are clever and even honest companies will find solutions to charge us if the need is created by inflation.

      Note that Sony has criteria for what a game can cost. They dont let just any game add a $70 price tag, or even $60. There will be companies that exploit any financial opportunity available, and they will piss us off with $70 games and overpriced DLC and microtransactions. Still, spiting the companies who make too much already is not worth holding back the studios who will take the $70 cost and put it to good use and give us better games. Im sure you will personally be able to tell the difference and pick your purchases accordingly.

      If God of War Ragnarok releases for $70 and no online component, but has microtransactions anyway, then that would be on Sony as the publisher. I personally expect to see Sony’s games live up to the $70 tag. If they fumble on a game I wont put money into any areas I feel are unfair, and I will be voicing my disapproval alongside you.

    • Again – DLC, remasters, deluxe & ultimate editions, sponsorships, season pass, merchandise has been the way companies have coped with inflation.

      Focus on something else in my OP – you’re rambling. I tell you something I won’t do – take a “note” from you.

    • Welp.. your loss

    • Do you live in Brazil??

    • Good games,tlou2 is a masterpiece I like this game alot

    • So apparently if you aren’t in the US I saw somewhere that you can just change the country? Not exactly sure how but it seems legit so it might be worth a try.

    • @bs4mykneemiss The moment I realize you are a little kid was at “delay games they have promised”. Lol, seriously, wow. Didnt read any more

    • What’s your goal for posting these insults, Ma? What do you expect or hope to happen. I sincerely don’t care what you think.

  • Excellent lineup, keep it up! ❤️

  • Nothing hurts worse than buying all these games full price and seeing this. Happens almost every month 🤦

    • If you’re looking to buy a game and you’re subscribed to PS+ or PS Now then it might be prudent to put off buying games until the next month’s selection is announced.

      Waiting two to three weeks might just save you a couple of bucks in the long run.

    • Always wait for the sale.

    • I know. That’s why I always wait until these games are on big sale, no regret at that point.

    • Makes me wish I was young enough to really take advantage of game subscriptions. I own too many of the games so it’s tough to transition. I’ve held off on XB exclusives for a long time though so GamePass might have some value for me for the occasional monthly sub once more of their new studios drop exclusives. I will probably always keep up with PS games though so unless PS Now changes I don’t see myself using PS Now primarily on PS.

  • Good lineup, Nice that we can download the ps5 upgrade for TLOU2.

  • Sweet lineup, let’s go!

    • Sorry, but TJ Maxx is a new release game coming out later this month, and will not be available on NOW in the near future

      Regard,
      John Earwig

  • Skipping Fallout 76 until they add 4k60 support on ps5.

  • The Last of Us Part 2 this month, so can we be hopeful for Ghost of Tsushima next month or the month after?

    Good month.

  • Next year 2022 nier automata judgment tlou 2 fallout 76 for ps plus i hope

  • Fantastic Month.

    I hope Trails of Cold Steel 3 and 4, YSIX can one day be on PSNOW.

  • Hello, PlayStation.
    When will we have PSNOw in Brazil?
    All fans of the platform are looking forward to some concrete information on this subject.

    • Although they added the ability to download PS4 games on PS4 and PS5, streaming is still an integral part of PlayStation Now as a service.

      PlayStation Now recommends a minimum download speed of 5 Mbps, according to Statista.com, Brazil’s average download speedin 2019 was 4.84 Mbps.

      It could be that the internet infrastructure in Brazil is still below target, or that they are dragging their feet investing in setting up data centers to allow for streaming.

    • Luck – Yah, but they could (at the minimum) communicate that, if it’s the case. But, communication from PS is something they Will not do.

  • Absolutely amazing, 3rd month in a row of great games. Have all the complainers and GP comparisons stopped yet?

    • No, people will always have a different opinion than you. Your reference to people with a contrasting opinion as “complainers” shows your mental age.

  • So Canadians don’t get Last of Us 2, are you like disrciminating based on where they leave aside to VACINE PASS?

  • Cool

  • Guys why is this service not in every possible country??

  • Thanks for the free psn games

    You guys are the absolute best in the gaming business.

  • When Sony makes you happy again))

  • when will be the game added?

  • It’s time! Let’s launch PSNow in Brazil! :D

  • New games does not show up on pc and i can not contact to support because support mechanism is so useless. Is something wrong about ps now on pc ?

  • What time will they be released eastern time?

  • When will the Old Hunters for Bloodborne get released on PSNow. It’s turning 6 in November and I think that would be a good way to celebrate

  • Wow! Great month to be a fan of golf games. One for PSPlus and we’re getting another one for PSNow.

  • I don’t know where to submit suggestions, but it would be cool to bring back ps1 classics like bloody roar 2 and monsters inc

    • Oh I’d love to see Bloody Roar on PS Now, would be amazing if they add PS1/2/3 games to the service every month!

      PS Now is a great backwards compatibility feature but they’re missing the opportunity !!!
