PlayStation Now February 2019 Update Adds Mortal Kombat X and More
It's that time of the month when Sony gives us an update on what games are coming to PlayStation Now, and boy is it a lot.
Gather ’round folks, it’s that time of the month when we find out what new games PlayStation Now subscribers will be able to sink their teeth into. For this month, it’s a doozy, as there’s a major game in pretty much any genre you can think of.
Kicking things off we have Mortal Kombat X, the tenth and most recently released installment in the highly popular fighting series. Released two years ago, this addition will allow new fans to get familiar with the series before the next entry, Mortal Kombat 11, hits store shelves this April.
On the other side of the spectrum, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is now available, which of course includes remastered versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (both of which were originally released for PlayStation 2), as well as Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (originally released for PSP).
If you’re a racing fan, then there are two entries this month that’ll pique your interest: F1 2017 and Need for Speed: Rivals, the first cross-generation game in the long-running racing series that originally released back in 2013.
If you’re a shooter fan, you’re also in luck. Battlefield Hardline, the entry that took the series away from the military experience it was known for and put them in the shoes of police officers….for one entry in the series. That being said, it is the last released game by Visceral Studios, so it’s cool nonetheless. Shooter fans also get Metro Last Light Redux, which will give fans a chance to revisit that world before Metro Exodus releases later this year.
Of course, those are only the most well-known titles. In total, PS Now subscribers get access to ten new games, with the others being Earth Defense Force 4.1, Magicka 2, Pillars of Eternity, and Rebel Galaxy.
Remember, PlayStation Now is, for the most part, a streaming service. Recently, however, Sony began allowing downloads of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 2 games from the service, however, PlayStation 3 games (which are the games that most people want to download) still aren’t available, and given the architecture of the console, it may never be possible.
