Plus Moving Out, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and NASCAR Heat 5.

PlayStation Now will add God of War, Judgment, Nioh 2, Red Dead Redemption 2, and more as part of its July lineup, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced. The new titles will be available on July 6.

Here is an overview each new game, via Sony Interactive Entertainment:

God of War (Sony Interactive Entertainment)

This staggering reimagining of God of War combines all the hallmarks of the iconic series—epic boss fights, fluid combat, and breathtaking scale—and fuses them with a powerful and moving narrative that re-establishes Kratos’ world. His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus behind him, Kratos now lives in the realm of Norse gods and monsters. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, Kratos is forced to confront and control the rage that has long defined him. It’s in this harsh, unforgiving world that Kratos must fight to survive, and teach his son to do the same.

Judgment (Sega)

From the team that brought you the critically-acclaimed Yakuza series comes a gripping psychological thriller. Haunted by his past, disgraced attorney Takayuki Yagami takes up arms as a private detective, clawing his way through Kamurocho’s underground crime network to investigate a string of grisly murders. Track suspects, discover clues, and bring evidence to court. Take advantage of two unique battle styles to take down adversaries in electrifying encounters.

Judgment is available on PlayStation Now until October 4, 2021.

NASCAR Heat 5 (Motorsport Games)

This official video game of the world’s most popular stockcar racing series puts you behind the wheel of these incredible racing machines and challenges you to become the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series champion. Features all the official teams, drivers and cars from the three NASCAR National Series as well as the Xtreme Dirt Tour, racing on 39 authentic tracks. The immersive Career is complemented by Quick Race, a new Test Session mode and multiplayer, both online and split-screen.

Nioh 2 (Sony Interactive Entertainment)

Master the lethal arts of the samurai as a mysterious half-human, half-supernatural Yokai warrior, in this challenging action RPG sequel. Explore violent Sengoku-era Japan and the deadly Dark Realm, both plagued with grotesque, merciless demons. Unsheathe your deadly weapons and cut down all enemies in your path using a revamped combat system and the ability to transform into a full Yokai to unleash devastating paranormal powers.

Moving Out (Team17)

Moving Out is a ridiculous physics-based moving simulator. As a newly certified Furniture Arrangement & Relocation Technician, you’ll take on moving jobs all across the town of Packmore. Grow Smooth Moves to brave new heights, recruit colorful customizable characters, and save your town from furniture peril. Play solo or co-op and move your way through sleepy suburbs, frenzied farms, haunted houses, virtual reality and lands beyond!

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game (Sega)

This is the official video game for the Olympics Games Tokyo 2020. It includes more than 15 Olympic Games events such as Athletics, Aquatics and Ball games across realistically reproduced venues, such as the Olympic Stadium and Tokyo Aquatics Centre. Every event offers online multiplayer, letting you challenge players from all over the world.

Red Dead Redemption 2 (Rockstar Games)

From the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a sprawling tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. Also included is Red Dead Online: forge your own path as you battle lawmen, outlaw gangs and ferocious wild animals to build a life on the American frontier.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PlayStation Now until November 1, 2021 exclusively via PlayStation 4 / PlayStation 5 download.

PS Now July: Red Dead Redemption 2, Judgment & More Join Service

CBR - Comic Book Resources 05 July, 2021 - 02:15pm

From wild west adventures to the best athletes in the world, there is literally a little something for everyone in July. That's good, too; some huge titles are exiting PlayStation Now this month, too. If you like what you see and aren't a member, you can always check out Sony's PlayStation Now website to become a member starting at $9.99/month.

In addition to the critically acclaimed story mode, you'll get endless hours of adventure in Red Dead Online. Like GTA Online, . is an open-world multiplayer adventure, where you create your own outlaw and explore the west. Better jump into this one now, though; Red Dead Redemption II isn't a short game, and it's only available until November 1, 2021.

Explore Feudal Japan while battling dangerous Yokai and mastering a variety of sword techniques. Still not enough for you? Transform into a terrifying Yokai yourself and cut a bloody swath through your opponents.

Moving Out is a wacky physics-based puzzler that's sure to keep players engaged. In addition to the solo mode, there's a co-op mode to allow you and your friends to both become F.A.R.T.s through the game's varied locales.

As Kratos, players guide their son Atreyu through a dangerous, snow-covered world to survive. Kratos has long since put his days as a God of War behind him, but his past is quickly catching up with him. This is the perfect time to dive in to the beloved title ahead of the upcoming sequel, due out sometime in 2022.

Judgment was originally released relatively quietly, but the reception has improved over time thanks to word of mouth and the next-gen Judgment Remastered release. Today the title is a stellar favorite, with a sequel, Lost Judgment, due out in September. If you want to get caught up, Judgment will be available on PlayStation Now until October 4, 2021.

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is a massive endeavor, boasting 15 Olympic events and some of the best-looking representations of Olympic stadiums ever committed to games. Once you're done playing offline and mastering your skills, take it online and compete against other players in leaderboards for every single event. Don't forget to also pick up the game's Sonic the Hedgehog DLC, allowing you to participate in events in a Sonic mascot costume!

Heat received pretty middling reviews when it released, nonetheless. A large part of the problem was the lack of forward momentum in the series, feeling more like a rehash of the previous entry that didn't add enough improvements. Still, if you're a die-hard Nascar fan, Nascar Heat 5 is sure to keep you entertained for a few laps around the track.

Despite being a huge recent addition, Marvel's Avengers also drops off PlayStation Now this month. The game saw a rocky start, but several patches, updates and new events have turned it around into a relatively enjoyable experience. Beat 'em ups like Streets of Rage 4 and Jump Force are still on the service, but Marvel's Avengers fans may want to pick this one up themselves ahead of the upcoming War for Wakanda DLC release.
