April Games

If you're looking for something to play on PS Now, it's worth looking at the new games that were added in April.

Marvel's Avengers was the main draw. Below is the game's official description:

"Marvel’s Avengers is an epic, third-person, action-adventure game that combines an original, cinematic story with single-player and co-operative gameplay. In a future with Super Heroes outlawed, a young Kamala Khan must reassemble the Avengers to stop AIM. Marvel’s Avengers continues the epic journey with new Heroes and new narrative delivered on an ongoing basis, for the definitive Avengers gaming experience. Assemble into a team of up to four players online, master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, and defend the Earth from escalating threats."

Marvel’s Avengers is available until Monday July 5, 2021. 

Borderlands 3 and The Long Dark were the two other new games added to PS Now in April 2021.

The former is available until Wednesday September 29, 2021, while the latter doesn't have an expiry date yet.
