Persona 5 headlines the latest additions to the PlayStation Now lineup

By Heidi Nicholas,
PlayStation have announced a November update for PS Now: three new titles are out now, joining more than 800 PS2, PS3 and PS4 games already available for those with a PlayStation Now membership. Hollow Knight, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and Persona 5 are now all available for those with a PlayStation Now membership, though two of them aren't sticking around for long.

PS Now

Hollow Knight

The town of Dirtmouth sits atop the ruins of an ancient kingdom, Hallownest. Hollow Knight is a 2D platformer in which you, the Hollow Knight, venture into the depths to explore the caverns of this kingdom, escaping traps, battling creatures, and evolving abilities along the way.


Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

In Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, the player ventures behind enemy lines and into Mordor in an attempt to undermine it from within. Mordor is littered with Fortresses and enemies of different ranks, and these enemies interact with the player individually through the Nemesis System. For instance, enemies you'd thought you'd vanquished might return, scarred and with a greater thirst for revenge against you. Fight through Mordor's fortresses to reach the Dark Lord and his Nazgul.


Persona 5

Persona 5 is a turn-based RPG about social reform. The player leads a double life; alternating between high-school realities in the day, and by night, becoming a phantom thief using their Metaverse Navigator to help them get inside Palaces. Each Palace has been created by corrupt adults, and stealing their Treasure will help bleed them of this corruption.


PlayStation also included a list of the most-played games on PS Now of October, with GTAV once again flying high on the chart. God of War, GTA V, Uncharted 4 and Infamous Second Son will all be available until January 2nd of 2020. All three of November's PS Now games are available now, though PlayStation say that Persona 5 and Shadow of War are only available until 4th February 2020.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
