April’s PlayStation Now lineup feels underwhelming


While PlayStation Now doesn’t seem quite as prominent as Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, the two services do have some traits in common. They’re both game subscription services; they both feature a rotating lineup of games; they’re both accessible on either console or PC; and they both get new titles every month. The big difference is that while Game Pass’s big April additions include brand-new titles like Outriders and MLB The Show 21, PS Now’s April lineup includes Marvel’s Avengers, Borderlands 3 and The Long Dark. Information comes from the official PlayStation Blog.

While those three titles aren’t bad by any stretch, they garnered decidedly mixed reactions from fans and critics alike. Marvel’s Avengers has an enjoyable campaign, but repetitive live service elements. Borderlands 3 has attractive visuals and a solid gameplay loop, but wears out its welcome long before the end. The Long Dark features demanding survival mechanics, but the tepid story campaign arguably drags the whole package down.
