For April, Sony’s cloud gaming subscription service PlayStation Now is including three new titles: Marvel’s Avengers, Borderlands 3, and The Long Dark.
The headliner right here is possibly Marvel’s Avengers, despite the game’s difficult launch remaining August. Crystal Dynamics’ superhero beat-em-up simply obtained an impressive next-gen update for PS5 and Xbox Series X, and coupled with new story expansions and constant performance patches, it is objectively a higher experience than it was once when it released. Though, it can be argued that its largest troubles nonetheless persist. Either way, it is truly well worth giving a shot if you are subscribed to PlayStation Now.
If you are on the hunt for something to play with a friend, Borderlands 3 would possibly be higher proper to your tastes. Gearbox’s trendy vault-hunting looter shooters have been typically well-received amongst followers and critics alike, with GamesRadar’s 4/5-star Borderlands 3 assessment calling it “a sugar rush brought on fever dream of Borderlands’ best excesses as a looter shooter.”
For something a little greater thoughtful, The Long Dark is an open-world, first-person survival game with a beautiful, painterly art style. There’s a lot of range to fine-tune your experience, with three awesome issue settings for the survival mode as nicely as a new(ish) story mode.
If you have not subscribed to PlayStation Now, it is well worth noting that a free 7-day trial goes live Wednesday, April 7. All three of the above games will be delivered to the service tomorrow, so they may be included in the free trial. Marvel’s Avengers will leave the service Monday, July 5, whilst Borderlands 3 will stick round till September 29.
All available to play starting tomorrow, April 6.
Marvel’s Avengers is an epic, third-person, action-adventure game that combines an original, cinematic story with single-player and cooperative 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 narratives 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.
The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and a mayhem-fueled adventure! Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four new Vault Hunters, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or with friends to take on insane enemies, score loads of loot and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy. Play with anyone at any time online or in split-screen co-op, regardless of your level or mission progress.

The Long Dark
The Long Dark is a thoughtful, exploration-survival experience that challenges solo players to think for themselves as they explore an expansive frozen wilderness in the aftermath of a geomagnetic disaster. There are no zombies — only you, the cold, and all the threats Mother Nature can muster.
