PlayStation Now, Sony’s game-streaming and downloading subscription service, recently added 50 new PS4 games to its library, including Ubisoft’s For Honor.
The PS Now version of For Honor includes the game’s 12 starting heroes, the main story campaign, and all the base multiplayer modes. Best of all, if you’re playing through your PS Now subscription, you don’t need PS Plus to play online. You can even download For Honor from PS Now, so there’s no need to worry about input lag costing you a clutch parry or messing with your combos. The only catch is that, if you want to play with any of the new heroes or the new modes in the “Marching Fire” expansion, you’ll have to pay for them separately.
Besides For Honor, Sony only listed a few of the other 49 new PS4 games that have arrived on PS Now. These include Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, Super Star Wars (which is apparently considered a PS4 game), Dandara, Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force, Raiden V: Director’s Cut, and TRON RUN/r.
These additions are just in time for PS Now’s “holiday price promotion.” You can snag a three-month subscription (regularly priced at $44.99) for $29.99 and a yearlong subscription (regularly priced at $99.99) for $79.99 through January 8th, 2019.
Sony has steadily been improving PS Now over the last few months. Back in September, PS Now started letting subscribers download select games, similar to Xbox’s Game Pass service. Then, in November, Sony streamlined PS Now’s search process to make finding games even easier. As Microsoft pushes further into digital downloads and subscription-based services over the next few years, it’ll be interesting to see how Sony responds.
