Sony has revealed that it is currently testing and will eventually be rolling out cloud streaming for PS5 games for those that have a PlayStation Plus Premium subscription, and have a PS5. The subscription tier already supports cloud streaming for supported PS3 and PS4 games. In addition, the streaming will apply to games people already own digitally, so there is no need to download them either.

In a blog post, Nick Maguire VP of Global Services, Global Sales and Business Operations for Sony Interactive Entertainment, wrote, “We think it’s important for Premium members to be able to enjoy as many games as possible via cloud streaming. As more games continue to launch on the PS5 console, we look forward to adding cloud streaming capability for PS5 titles in addition to the PS3, PS4 and classic titles that are already available for Premium members to stream. We’re in the early stages right now, and we can’t wait to share more details when we’re ready, including a launch time frame. Stay tuned!”

Sony also confirmed what games are being added to the PS Plus Game library next week. The list includes:

  • Far Cry 6 (PS4/PS5)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge (PS4/PS5)
  • Rogue Legacy 2 (PS4/PS5)
  • Inscryption (PS4/PS5)
  • Soulstice (PS5)
  • Tacoma (PS4)
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (PS4)
  • Killing Floor 2 (PS4)
  • Game Trial for WWE2K23 (PS4), will also be available on June 20.

There some big hitters in there and some smaller but good games too. In our Far Cry 6 review, Gareth wrote, “Far Cry 6 feels like a sequel that was made because there needed to be a sequel, that’s making changes because it needs to show progress. The previous three numbered games in the series felt like they had their own identity and tried to offer more and more options to the player, but Far Cry 6 is a lateral move towards something that isn’t quite the Far Cry I originally loved.”

While in our Tacoma review, Dave wrote, “Tacoma has some great characterisation and is a very different breed of science fiction, but my enjoyment was sapped by one key mistake in how the story was told. It also has issues with loading and can be somewhat bland to look at, but looking around you, the environmental storytelling is top-notch. By the end, I’d become invested in these characters, but not necessarily their plight.”
