Sony has announced the PlayStation Now games coming in April 2022. Four new titles will be added to the streaming service tomorrow, April 5, 2022, with a varied mix of genres.

Leading the way we have the very clever space mystery, Outer Wilds, alongside racing sequel, WRC 10, Journey to the Savage Planet, and Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood.

It’s worth noting that games come and go fairly regularly, so if you’re desperate to play these it may be worth grabbing them from PlayStation Now pronto.

Speaking of PlayStation Now, the subscription service only has a couple of months before it vanishes. From June 2022 it will be replaced by the new and improved PlayStation Plus, which is split into three tiers. You can read more about it further down. In the meantime, you can check our reviews for the latest PS Now additions:

PlayStation Now – what’s changing?

As previously mentioned, PS Now is going away and will be replaced by the new, three-tier PlayStation Plus. On the base level, PS Plus will remain as it is in the Essential plan, with monthly free games, cloud storage for saves and online multiplayer access – it will also retain the same price point. On top of that, you have PS Plus Extra which adds a catalogue of up to 400 PS4 and PS5 games, including some games from PlayStation Studios. Finally, PS Plus Premium will add access to PS3 games via cloud streaming, and a selection of PS1, PS2 and PSP games for both streaming and download.

For the Extra and Premium tiers, Sony will be including more of their first party games, and at launch, they plan to include games like Death Stranding, God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Mortal Kombat 11, and Returnal. This will not include Sony’s first party games on day one, it’s been confirmed in an interview, so it seems that Sony are not matching Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass in that regard.

Curious to know more about how the new PS Plus compares to Xbox Game Pass? We have you sorted in this handy breakdown.

  1. For anyone who hasn’t seen the little loophole today, there is a way to get a year of PS Now. Until Sony notice and remove the option. You just need a very long URL you can easily find on Reddit or Twitter which I won’t post here because it’ll probably go horribly wrong being so long.

    You can stack multiple years of PS Now, which will get upgraded to PS+ Premium in June. So £50 for a year of PS Now gets you £100 worth of PS+ Premium. (If you’ve stacked up years of PS+ anyway, so obviously won’t save anything)

    • I managed to grab a year of PS Now last October when it was discounted to £40ish (could have been lower, actually). Bagged another year via the offer you mentioned. However, I’ve also got years of PS Plus already stacked, so not sure I’m really saving much in the long run!

      • They haven’t actually said what happens if you have both, have they? If you’ve got PS+, you get Essential. If you’ve got PS Now, you get Premium.

        But if you’ve got both? You probably get Premium until the PS Now time runs out, then Essential afterwards? Not as great a deal, but you’re not technically losing anything.

        They also haven’t mentioned anything about upgrading from Essential to Premium. Which has to happen, or there’ll be people stuck on Essential for years and not able to give Sony more money.
