Sony announced today in a new blog post that their PlayStation Now service will begin to include the ability to stream and download games onto the PS4. Players will then be able to access their games completely offline all through a single subscription. If this sounds familiar, that’s probably because both Nintendo and Microsoft offer a similar feature through their own platforms.
Most games currently available as part of the PlayStation Now service will become available for download including: Bloodborne, God of War 3 Remastered, NBA 2K16, and Until Dawn to name a few. These downloadable games will support “all user-purchased DLCs, microtransactions, and add-ons” in addition to “PS4 Pro enhancements for subscribers using a PS4 Pro system.”
It is worth noting that while you can play these titles completely offline, you do need to provide your PS4 internet access periodically so your PlayStation Now subscription can be verified. It would’ve been helpful if the blog post specified exactly how many days you could play offline without internet, but alas, they didn’t provide us that information.
For those of you who like the sound of this new feature, Sony is offering a special summer promotional price which ends on September 25th where you can try PS Now for a month at roughly $10 USD (the normal price being $15) or get a full year for $100 USD.
