Adding to the growing list of devices that support the PlayStation Now subscription, Sony announced today that the PlayStation 3 will be getting the subscription option on May 12 in Canada and the United States. This will allow you to stream over 100 PS3 games for $19.99 a month, or $44.99 for three months.
Sony also took this opportunity to reveal the new May 2015 PlayStation Now subscription additions, which should go live tomorrow:
Rescue your beloved princess through teamwork in this comic medieval battle royale. There’s a catch, though — the other team has been feeding her magical cake, making her harder to escort back to your castle. Choose from five distinct character classes and switch at any time to best help your team. Charge head first into battle, heal teammates as they break through enemy lines, and upgrade your team and the castle defenses as you work with your team to save your princess.
Feel the power of new turbocharged Formula One cars in the most accessible Formula 1 video game yet, including a new driver evaluation system to adjust the game to your level, shorter career options, and new Very Easy mode. F1 2014 features all the cars, drivers and circuits from the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship including new tracks in Russia and Austria.
Sanctum 2 is the sequel to one of the first Tower Defense/FPS hybrid game. Pick from four unique character classes and embark on a mission to protect the oxygen-producing Cores from hordes of deadly aliens who are threatened by their existence. In Sanctum 2, you will utilize elements from multiple gameplay genres to succeed. Construct towers and walls during the building phase before the enemies attack, then jump into the fray and blast everything to pieces in FPS mode. You can progress through the single-player campaign yourself, or play with up to four friends in co-op to discover the secrets of the planet LOEK III.
Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce
Step into a Dynasty Warriors experience unlike any other. Up to four friends can team‐up for a wide range of heroic action‐packed quests. Become one of history’s greatest warriors and work as a team to conquer heavily‐armed fortresses, infiltrate enemy strongholds and more. Spectacular battles await!
Farming Simulator will challenge you to take on the role of a modern day farmer. Animal husbandry, crops, sales… It’s up to you to manage and grow your own farm in two huge environments: typical European and American environments. Progress in your career to complete different missions and control more than a hundred farming vehicles!
After saying a PlayStation Vita version of the subscription is coming “soon,” PlayStation Now Senior Director Jack Buser added, “In the meantime, if you are a subscriber, you can play the subscription games for free on your Vita by navigating to them in the rental menu.”
He then teased, “Expect some great news soon from publishers about PS Now!”
Don’t forget that tomorrow also sees the new PlayStation Plus games going live.
