Sony is pulling out the stops with next month’s PlayStation Now update, and it’s as good a start to the gaming year as one could wish for.
From January 2nd, 2020, you’ll be able to play Horizon Zero Dawn, Overcooked 2, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy via the PlayStation Now subscription service. Each of the three games will be playable via streaming on PS4 or PC, as well as download on PS4.
The upcoming additions line up with three big games leaving. Uncharted 4, God of War, and GTA V will all be leaving the service on January 2nd, 2020. If you’ve got a subscription but haven’t gotten around to playing those great games, perhaps you’ll find some time over the Christmas holidays.
Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be available until April 7th, 2020. Strangely, Overcooked 2 doesn’t have a leaving date, or at least not one that I saw on the PlayStation Blog. This could mean that Overcooked 2 will be staying longer, or it could be corrected at any moment.
Not a bad update, then, if you somehow missed two of the biggest PS4 exclusives of the last couple of years. Personally, I’m not a fan of Horizon, much to the chagrin of my dear colleague Kyle who never misses an opportunity to bash me for it. He loved the game and awarded it a great score in his review.
The Lost Legacy is a little better in my eyes, and it’s a nice continuation of the series without having Nathan Drake drag along a Zimmer frame and Sully’s long-dead corpse. You can read my Uncharted: The Lost Legacy review here.
