New games join PS Now today, including Until Dawn, Dead Island and Deadlight

A raft of new horror & mystery games hit the streaming service just in time for Halloween

Yup, it’s that time of year again: everybody grab your pumpkins, dust off your broomsticks and prepare for your seasonally-sanctioned sugar rush. Over at PlayStation we’re getting in the mood by adding a slew of new titles to our PS Now game-streaming service that’ll set you and your friends on the edge of your seats.

The following titles join the service today, and we’ve even tossed in a few not-so-scary things, in case it all gets too much:

For PS4

  • Until Dawn
  • Dead Island: Definitive Edition
  • Deadlight: Director’s Cut
  • The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
  • SOMA
  • Lords of the Fallen
  • Overlord: Fellowship of Evil
  • Beyond: Two Souls
  • Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders
  • How To Survive: Storm Warning Edition
  • Lone Survivor: Director’s Cut
  • Saint’s Row: Gat out of Hell
  • Space Hulk
  • Extreme Exorcism

For PS3

  • Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut

On top of that, there’s also a huge selection of spine-tingling titles already available on the service – from out-and-out gore fests to subtle psychological shockers. Here are our top picks, available right now:

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation

A blood-soaked odyssey of pure demon-slaying satisfaction, few games wear the ‘gore-fest’ badge as proudly as Painkiller. If you like your weapons a little on the wacky side and your horror on the visceral, then you’ll struggle to do better than this PS3 remaster of Painkiller and Painkiller: Battle out of Hell.

The Walking Dead: Season 1 & 2

The Walking Dead
Subtle, stylish and at moments truly harrowing, Telltale Games’ spin-off story from the hugely successful AMC TV series places you at the heart of a life and death struggle for survival amid the desolate wastes of a zombie apocalypse. Brought to life with memorable characters and painfully difficult decisions, these are the kind of scares that will linger with you long after you’ve finished playing.

Resident Evil: Revelations

Resident Evil: Revelations

If hammy action-horror is more your thing, then check out Resident Evil: Revelations. It’s everything you want from a classic horror staple: a creepy abandoned ghost ship, a mystery kidnapping, a whole load of gut-turningly gruesome monsters and a sprinkling of B-movie camp. Sure, it’s not exactly subtle, but with great pacing, interesting puzzles and some wonderfully-realised environments to explore, it’s a cracking horror experience.

How about on giving an update on the wipeout remix contest? No word anywhere and no answer even in the forums. This sucks.

looks good, but still way too expensive needs to be around the £8 mark or do something with PS plus

Not that anyone is going to answer from Sony but is it just Dead Island? Only ask as the image used in the header is for both the original game and Riptide.

Both Dead Island Definitive Edition and Dead Island Riptide are on PS Now.

It’s insane that they never respond to any PS Now questions, not even once. There’s no monthly schedule, it’s random and sometimes we won’t even get a monthly update. Why aren’t we told what games are leaving the service and when? I just don’t understand what’s going on, this service must be close to if not 2 years old now in the UK, how is there still 0 communication or consistency?

To answer your question, it’s Dead Island 1 only, Riptide is already on the service and I believe it’s the PS3 version.

Sadly they lost totally the Sense to stay in touch with their Consumers. They had it a few years ago but now…totally not. It seems the cycle repeats again until they loose their Consumerbase again… sadly

Just release your games already for PC. We know you want it otherwise you wouldn’t have bothered with this half assed service.

Good news for the 8 people who use PS Now!

Any chance of dropping the loss-making service in favour of backwards compatibility? You could even make it digital only if you wanted to make a few bucks.

Off topic, but will there be VR Celebration sale like they have in US now? Or EU VR players can go “you know what”?

Well it’s getting better. It’s still just on the wrong side of too expensive though, call it £8.99 a month and so many people would take a chance on it. And dropping Vita support was unforgivable :( That was the most attractive feature for me and you took it away! Bad.

I would be happy if they just removed PS3 & Vita from the PS Plus lineup and gave us PS Now

Yeah, that’ll be good for the regions that actually have access to PS Now…

As AussieOutsider wrote. Only good for the very few regions that got it.

Instead they should probably think about adding it to more countries. It shouldn’t be too hard.

Deadly permenition damn!

Quite tempted by that. I had it on 360 and it was bizarre but i sold the box to get ps4

I know our internet is garbage and all, but is this service ever going to be rolled out to Australia?

This service was stillborn.

Still, what is the point of PS Now? Does ANYONE actually subscribe to it??? £12.99 to stream last gen games? WHY?!?!?! Crazy. Just admit it’s rubbish and either get rid of it or add it to PS Plus.
