PS4 gamers can look forward to some new additions to the official PlayStation Now and PS Plus games lineups for October 2020. The PSN will be getting updated later this week, with Sony set to reveal its PS Now plans on the same day that this month’s PlayStation Plus games are released. So if you’re a subscriber to both services, you can expect at least five new games to become available to download or stream this week. Three new games are expected to be announced for the PS Now October 2020 lineup, with one being an indie title.
It should be noted that September saw four new games added so there’s a chance for a few more surprises.
And while we don’t know the tech giant’s plans just yet, we do know when they will be revealed.
Based on the normal schedule, the latest PS Now games are expected to be announced on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
This is the same day that the new PS Plus games will be released onto the PlayStation Store and is part of a bigger PSN refresh.
The good news is there will be plenty of new games to choose from but this will come with a downside.
That’s because at least one PS Now game will be disappearing from the library around the same time.
This gives players just a few more days to stream two games before they disappear between October 5-6, depending on timezones.
PS NOW GAMES LEAVING IN OCTOBER
As confirmed by Sony earlier this year, some games added to PS Now will only be available for a limited time. Meanwhile, some games can only be downloaded on PlayStation consoles, while others remain stream-only. The games being removed from PS Now this week include the following:
