What to expect from PS Now in April 2021

PS Now is Sony's equivalent of Xbox Game Pass, in fact, it was launched three years before Game Pass.

One of the main differences is, the majority of the games have to be streamed over the internet as opposed to being downloaded.

While this can cause some issues, many people now have internet speeds that can do this successfully.

Now it's time to look ahead towards what games could be coming to the service in April 2021.

Release Date

The latest PS Now games are usually announced on the 1st of the month, with them going live on the 2nd.

This means that we can expect April's games to be announced on April 1st and they will go live on April 2nd.

Leaving Games

According to PlayStation Gaming, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is expected to leave the service on April 29th

Predictions

At the moment we don't have any official confirmation as to what the new PS Now games could be, but that doesn't stop us from speculating.

Here are our predictions.

The Division 2 could be the perfect PS Now title to start the month off. Each month, there's usually a pretty solid multiplayer title included in the PS Now line-up and Tom Clancy's The Divison 2 could be April 2021's choice.

It's a pretty old game but being added to PS Now could give it the boost of life it needs at this later stage of its life.

Other people think Death Stranding could be the stand-out addition and we're inclined to agree with them. March 2021 didn't see anything really amazing get added to PS Now so we're due a bit of a blockbuster in April, right?

DEATH - Have you played Death Stranding yet? Would you get PS Now if it was added?

In addition to this, smaller games like Cuphead and Subnautica are both being talked about and would both make an interesting addition.

With Bethesda joining Xbox and adding twenty titles to Game Pass this week, you feel as if PlayStation is going to have to push the boat out to convince people to keep their PS Now subscriptions.

InFamous Second Son

From the creator of Ghost of Tsushima comes a superpowered action adventure set in modern day America. Delsin Rowe’s superhuman power is in your hands. Push your awesome abilities to the limit and see how your choices affect the city of Seattle and the people around you: hijack the powers of other superhumans, soar across the Seattle skyline and choose how your own story plays out.

Superhot

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, Superhot is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
