Update (4/5/21) – Square Enix has confirmed that this will indeed be Marvel’s Avengers for PS4. However, subscribers will be able to transfer their save to the PS5 version if they choose to buy it.
Original story follows.[poilib element=”accentDivider”]
Sony has announced that Marvel’s Avengers, Borderlands 3, and The Long Dark will all be arriving on PlayStation Now on April 6, 2021.
Announced on PlayStation.Blog, these three games will all be available tomorrow, and Marvel’s Avengers will stay on the service until July 5, 2021, while Borderlands 3 will stay on until September 29, 2021. No removal date was given for The Long Dark.[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/03/18/marvels-avengers-black-panther-reveal-trailer”]
To help celebrate the arrival of these games, Sony is offering a seven-day free trial for PS4 and PS5 owners beginning on Wednesday, April 7, and it will be available to anyone who is currently not subscribed to PlayStation Now.
According to PlayStation, even though PS Now is available on PS5, the service still only gives subscribers access to PS4, PS3, and PS2 games. This would make us believe that, despite Marvel’s Avengers and Borderlands 3 having PS5 versions, the versions coming to PS Now will only be the PS4 versions. IGN has reached out to Sony for clarification.
PS Now has over 800 PS4, PS3, and PS2 titles available to stream, and over 300 PS4 games that are also available to download, in “up to 4K resolution if you’re playing on PS4 Pro.”[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/11/09/borderlands-3-season-pass-2-official-trailer”]
While fans wishing to try Marvel’s Avengers will get to experience some of the updates arriving in the game’s 2021 Content Roadmap, the game will be most likely leaving the service before the War for Wakanda Expansion that will be adding Black Panther to the game later in 2021.[poilib element=”accentDivider”]
