Are you sure Vampyr is on PS Now for July ? The other games are available, except Vampyr and MudRunner (PS Now in France)

1.1

And now, they just removed Vampyr and MudRunner of the list

1.2

They will be August PS Now titles, mark my words.

Middle-Earth Shadow of Mordor also showed up in May 4th for 1-day before they quickly removed it. It ended up being one of the highlights of June PS Now lineup.

They don’t show up for me either.

Vampyr and Mudrunner is not up yet, and the US blog dont have them on their list. You guys really suck. But Im calling it now, those 2 games will be on Ps Plus in august.

Are there are staff actually working on this blog anymore?! PS Now has potential to be great but this is becoming a joke now. You add a game that people are interested in then remove it from the list. What is that about?

Huge catalog of 1st party games across PS1/PS2/PS3/PSP/Vita/PS4 and you keep adding games from PSPlus and trash puzzle games.

The PS4 tag line is #ForThePlayers so listen to us! We pay for the service and we expect better!

Very disappointing to see what was this month’s highlight to me, Vampyr, be quietly struck from the list of new games. And while I understand there will always be some overlap with PS+, having both of your headliners be Plus games, one from this previous month even, hardly makes up for it.

PS Plus and PS Now are nothing to do with each other. You don’t need a PS Plus membership to enjoy the full potential of PS Now. You can jump straight into online without requiring a second subscription. So it shouldn’t matter what was avaiable on PS Plus before, 8 years ago or 8 minutes ago.

PS Plus is absolutely a requirement to enjoy the full potential, without it, you can’t play any of the PS4 games online. Stop spreading lies.

@flipkick661 I am jumping in on this one armed with facts…

if you have PS NOW you do NOT need plus in order to play any PSNOW games online.

“If a game includes online multiplayer modes, you’ll be able to access these just as you would if you owned the game on disc or download, meaning you can play fellow PlayStation Now players as well as those playing disc or download versions of the game. An additional PS Plus membership is not required”

Very interesting

Hang on, so they removed Vampyr and Mudrunners from the EU selection and didn’t replace them with anything? So in effect the US get a better deal as usual because they get the same line up AND NBA Playgrounds 2. This along with the shambles that has been Plus this month means Sony should be utterly ashamed how they are treating their customers at the moment. Just totally unprofessional. In the build up to a new console generation as well? Crazy.

Rocket League and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection both get the second highest grade (AA) on my very thorough and nerdy spreadsheet, meaning highly recommended. Nightmares From the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call, Wuppo and Red Faction II get the third highest (A).

Tachyon Project and MXGP3 get B, Rad Rodgers is given a C, Dark Arcana: The Carnival and Rapala Fishing: Pro Series are awarded a D, while Real Farm flunks with an F.
