The Last of Us Part II
Five years after their perilous journey through the post-pandemic United States, Ellie and Joel have settled in Jackson, Wyoming. Living in a thriving community of survivors has allowed them peace and stability, despite the constant threat from the infected and other, more desperate survivors.
When a violent event disrupts that peace, Ellie embarks on a relentless journey to seek justice and find a deal. On the hunt for those responsible, she is confronted with the devastating physical and mental consequences of her actions.
PS5 players who download the game to their console can also download the game’s PS5 performance patch. For details, see here.
The Last of Us Part II is available until Monday, January 3, 2022.
Explore a vast wasteland devastated by nuclear war in this open world multiplayer addition to the Fallout story. Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning developers of Skyrim and Fallout 4, welcome you to Fallout 76, the newest addition to the Fallout franchise. Work together or not to survive. Under threat of nuclear annihilation, you will experience a large, dynamic world that was created in the legendary Fallout universe.
One collection, three terrifying experiences. In Amnesia: The Dark Descent you wake up in an abandoned castle and hardly remember your past. As you explore its eerie paths, you must piece together your troubled memories and discover the horror that lies deep below you. In Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus wakes up in bed, plagued by a fever and haunted by dreams of a dark and infernal engine. All he knows is that his children are in great danger and that it is up to him to save them. Amnesia: Finally, Justine takes you through a series of trials constructed by an insane mind. Do you want to risk your own life to save others?
This story-driven real-time tactical game challenges you to survive the worst that the Wild West has to offer as John Cooper goes in search of salvation. Travel through rural towns, across swamps and riverside, and finally to a dramatic showdown worthy of the legends of the Wild West and harness the skills of your gang – like Strongman Hector’s trusty ax, bounty hunter McCoy’s bait, Kate’s hidden weapon – and your mind.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered
It is a time of war. The Republic of Galbadia, under the influence of the sorceress Edea, mobilizes its great armies against the other nations of the world. Squall and other members of SeeD, an elite mercenary force, join Rinoa, a resistance fighter, to fight Galbadia’s tyrannical rule and prevent Edea from achieving her ultimate goal. And remember, Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is one of five Final Fantasy titles to hit PlayStation Now in the coming months.
Victor Vran: Overkill Edition *
Fight demons in this isometric action RPG using loot and different types of weapons – from revolvers to guitars – to develop your preferred fighting style and forge your own hero. And if you’d prefer not to go it alone, the game features online four-player co-op and local two-player co-op. There are also whole worlds to explore and fight your way through, inspired by the legendary band Motörhead, with Lemmy & Co. also lending some of their tracks to the game’s soundtrack.
Another Zombie Defense HD
Survive undead waves night after night alone or with up to three friends in this top-down arcade zombie shooter with tactical / strategy elements. Prepare before night falls – build some defensive barricades, buy weapons and ammunition, put up turrets, and stay alive as long as possible. Each night puts your skills to the test as the forces of darkness grow stronger with each wave. The game offers three different modes – Defense, Endless and Deathmatch.
