PlayStation Now Games for July 2021 Revealed 06 July, 2021 - 03:04am

Sony has today revealed the games that will be coming to its subscription platform, PlayStation Now, for the month of July 2021 and it very well might contain the best lineup of additions in quite some time. This month's new titles, which are all available to download on PS Now starting tomorrow on July 6, includes a number of critically acclaimed titles that have come out in recent years with the biggest addition coming from one of gaming's most prominent studios.

In total, seven new games are being added to PlayStation Now, which is quite a bit more than we usually receive each month. This list is most notably headlined by that of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2, which is one of the most popular games of the past couple of years. Conversely, on the first-party end of the spectrum, PlayStation has also brought back God of War this month after it previously departed from the service a while back.

Here's the full list of games that are joining PS Now for the month to go along with the dates they'll be potentially be departing:

Even though this new lineup to PlayStation Now is quite impressive, it doesn't come as much of a surprise. Just a couple of days back, leaked ads teased that many of these titles would end up joining the service for the month. Still, even in those leaks, the full slate of games listed here wasn't found in marketing materials that had surfaced, making today's full reveal a bit surprising.

As a whole, PlayStation Now is available right now across both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 platforms. The service typically retails for $9.99 per month, with one-year subscriptions costing $59.99.

So what do you think about these new additions to PlayStation Now for the month of July? Is this slate going to convince you to subscribe if you haven't already? Let me know either down in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

PS Now Confirms Leaked Line-Up for July 2021, Plus More PS4 Games

Push Square 06 July, 2021 - 03:04am

While the cool surprise was spoiled ahead of time last week with a leaked list of PlayStation Now game additions, this official line-up is still a corker. Better yet, there are actually two more PS4 titles includes in the list of games headed to Sony's secondary service for the month of July 2021. As previously leaked, Red Dead Redemption 2 is indeed the headline addition. The only caveat is that you can only download the game — streaming isn't an option while it sticks around until 1st November 2021.

Another limited-time PS4 game is Judgment, which will be available to play (both through download and streaming) until 4th October 2021. It's important to clarify this will not be the recent PS5 remaster of the Yakuza spin-off. Permanent additions to the service are Nioh 2 (PS4 version again), Moving Out, God of War, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game, and Nascar Heat 5. Those final two titles weren't part of the leak, so we'll take them as nice surprises. The Olympic game only just launched in the west, so we can follow along on PS4 as Great Britain snaps up some gold medals in real life too.

At a glance, the PS Now game additions for July 2021 are:

As this new list of titles enters PS Now, we also have to say goodbye to two games. Marvel's Avengers and The Crew 2 leave the PS Now service today. For a list of All PlayStation Now Games, head on through the link. Are you happy with this month's line-up? Share your thoughts in the comments below.


About Liam Croft

Liam grew up with a PlayStation controller in his hands and a love affair for Metal Gear Solid. Nowadays, he can be found playing the latest and greatest PS5 games as well as supporting Derby County. That last detail is his downfall.

Comments (44)

I won't be renewing this month then. Decent games of course but I've already played the ones I want. Avengers was decent enough for the campaign but glad I didn't pay full whack.

Wow great month! really excited for judgement and Olympics! These alone are worth for the whole year sub for me.

Nice, definitely playing the Olympics game.

Do Olympic games still trash your controllers? I've never played them since we tore apart my mates N64 controllers on International Track and Field back in the day...

Sublime month yet again. Good work Sony.

Will Nioh 2 include the PS5 version?

Wtf the Olympics game already? Wow I'm so so glad I didn't buy it...I almost did lol

Frankly ridiculous month. I held off on RDR2 only having a basic, launch day PS4 but looking forward to playing it on PS5 now. Will happily pour hours into Judgement too and me and the boy can play Moving Out together.

Already got the PS5 version of Nioh 2 but I can't recommend it enough to anyone who hasn't played it. Amazing game.

This (sort of) makes up for a terrible PS Plus month

Great list of additions. Every game is worth a play through

@Welsh_Will then again Mario Party destroyed my N64 stick too. Far too many.gamesntjat abused pads back then

Bought Judgment on the 26th and just plat'd it today. I highly recommend it, especially story-wise.

@prince_myshkin No, that's just the PS4 version too.

Good month, hope this is the beginning of Sony improving PS Now.

Sony stepping up their game with ps now, this months additions are miles better than what gamepass is adding (this month)

@mrtennis1990 - You seem to be pleased with these additions and how Sony are stepping up the PSNow releases yet in the D&D post you condemn Game Pass and urge people to buy their games. Curious.

Yessss, Moving out and Judgment will do for me as I own the rest of games.

Excellent month, looking forward to Nioh 2, but just bought Olympic games 2020 game, got to stop buying games.

Eh forget red dead redemption, The Tokyo Olympics game might actually lead me to try psnow

@UltimateOtaku91 maybe not your thing but much more looking forward to trying out flight sim on gamepass this month...

Strong month then... Hopefully they can keep this momentum for a few months. (There are 3 "won't buy them, but would love trying them" games in that lineup for me, that's huge)

Sony needs to have a section on PS Now titled "Limited Time games" or something. I wanted to play the Crew 2 eventually but thought I had more time only to realize that it was leaving tomorrow. Every game that is eventually leaving should be placed into that category so I know to prioritize playing them.

@ATaco that's the same on Gamepass for everything that isn't Microsoft owned

I am interested in every single PS Now game here.

I just finished Far Cry 4 and was going to start 5 but I will put that off and play Judgement first since I am a huge Yakuza fan and then Red Dead 2

@Kopite So you're saying that Gamepass doesn't have a section that let's you know which games are leaving either? That's'd think that they'd give people more of a heads up when games are only available for a limited time, besides manually checking each game.

@mrtennis1990 - It just seemed like your comments were at odds with each other. Thanks for the clarification.

@Shigurui And thus the cycle continues. You'll see this more and more if Sony want to compete with gamepass - fanboys condemning subscription services now applauding Sony for theirs.

@nessisonett ;

@ATaco I'm not sure but the majority of stuff is on there for a limited time

@ATaco There is a section that tells you the games leaving Game Pass in the next two weeks or so.

It's a really strong group of games and ones that should catch the attention of PS players.

However it still feels that Sony have absolutely zero strategy for this service as it stands.

The addition of God of War is great but that game is 3 years old and is permanently on the PS plus collection on PS5.

The fact that none of the games on Now have PS5 versions on there seems to suggest that Sony don't want PS5 customers and yet the logo likes to push itself into my home screen often enough.

The lack of a coherent and understandable unified strategy across all its subscriptions hurts PS Now immensely, it has no unique selling point because games are littered across other services.

@Illy333 Not sure what that’s in reference to 😂

@The_New_Butler I Think One Good Thing About God Of War 2018 On PS Now Is That You Can Play It Along With The Other 6 God Of War Games That Are Already On The Service.

@nessisonett I wondered if your willingness to play the Olympics game was a genuine attempt at irony. The game seems a bit substandard, kinda like all sport events related games.

@Illy333 Nah, I always enjoyed those games growing up. Genuinely looks like good fun and I’ve only heard good things about it.

@Areus that is true but again that sort of points once more to the lack of a defined unified path because you download some and you stream others.

It just feels a poor mix.

But yes that is a definite advantage.

@ATaco you want to know how gamepass informs people ? by simply waiting until the game has 15 days left and telling people here you have this x number of days to play and it will be gone, it never tells you that a game is staying for x time and that's one of the ridiculous reasons psnow is criticized for is that games don't stay long whereas gamepass gets a pass because they don't inform you in the first place lol

@gamiller1978 I keep telling myself that, my backlog is getting a bit ridiculous now!

@LiamCroft Ah ok that's decent. I would preferably like a month notice so I don't have to rush but the only game I knew was leaving was Avengers because that was the only one they pasted as "last chance to play" on ps now's main menu. I'll have to write down the games I need to play somewhere I guess so I don't miss them like I did the Crew 2. Shouldn't have to...but oh well. I'm not sure there's enough desire for something like this.

@OthmaneAD I do like that we know how long a game will be available on PS Now, the "Netflix" nature of Gamepass where a game could be pulled with only a two week notice isn't great. I'd just like a section on PS Now where I can quickly check which games are only available for a limited time. For example I had to look up a video on YouTube to remind myself that Borderlands 3 isn't a permanent addition and that I'll need to get to it sometime before September. It's too easy to forget or not notice these things when you're just casually skimming games.

@UltimateOtaku91 but the full list of this month's gamepass additions isn't even out yet?

Can anyone confirm when the new July games drop? I can't find that information anywhere on the Internet.

Red Dead Redemption 2, Judgment and Nioh 2 come to PlayStation Now in July - VG247

VG247 05 July, 2021 - 03:57pm

God of War, Nioh 2, Moving Out, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Nioh 2 will join PlayStation Now in July, extending the service’s offerings even more.

One name there stands out from the pack: Red Dead Redemption 2. As per a statement on the PlayStation blog, Red Dead Redemption 2 will join the service this month and then remain on PS Now until November 1. The game – as with everything on PS Now – is playable on PS4 and Ps5.

If you’re interested in playing the game, though, that should be more than enough time to polish off both the single-player campaign and Red Dead Online, which is also included with the download.

If you’re thinking of playing the game, it’s worth checking out our comprehensive Red Dead Redemption 2 guide. You can also check out our review of Red Dead Redemption 2 here, as well as some spoiler-free things you should know before getting started.

Red Dead Redemption 2 represents the latest blockbuster game that’s joined the subscription service – all of which have been orchestrated to give PlayStation Now a bit more weight in a market dominated by Xbox Game Pass.

Elsewhere on the service, we’re going to see Judgement (a spin-off from the Yakuza series), Moving Out (a charming game about moving people’s belongings from house to house), Nioh 2 (the blockbuster Souls-like title from Team Ninja), and Nascar Heat 5 (the officially licenced racing game for the 2020 season).

Most of the games listed will be kept on PlayStation Now long-term, but Judgement will leave on October 4, 2021.

Below, you’ll find the full list of games that will be available to stream on the service as of July 6:

PlayStation Now games for July 2021 announced 05 July, 2021 - 11:25am

Red Dead 2! Judgment! God of War! Nioh 2!

Streaming service PlayStation Now offers a huge library of games for PlayStation users giving hundreds of PS4 titles to download and play instantly.

The biggest and arguably best game coming this month is Red Dead Redemption 2, which follows the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van der Linde gang. It is full of shootouts, heists, hunting, horseback riding, interacting with NCPs, and maintaining Arthur's honour through the choices you choose. The action-adventure game will be available on Tuesday, 6th July.

Judgment, from the same team that created the Yakuza series, is a spin off series that follows a detective investigating a string of murders. The game will be available for three months, from 6th July until the 4th October 2021.

Other games coming to PlayStation Now this month include 2018 title God of War, the eighth instalment in the God of War series, Nioh 2, where players can create their own character who was a yōkai spirit and explore violent Sengoku-era Japan, and Moving Out, a game you play as a furniture arrangement and relocation technician taking on moving jobs across the town of Packmore.

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is the official game of the event. You can customise an avatar and compete for a gold medal. You can compete in events as an astronaut and even as Sonic the Hedgehog.

Finally, there's Nascar Heat 5, the officially licenced racing game for the 2020 season. The game features all the official teams, drivers, and cars from the three Nascar National Series, as well as the Xtreme Dirt Tour.

Sahira is an aspiring games journalist. She likes immersive story driven games, her favourites include The Last of Us, Red Dead 2, Life is Strange, and GTA.

Don't forget to add on the $20K+ "Buyer's Premium", though.
