Sony revealed the new PlayStation Now games they are adding in June, with the headliner being The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This is a significant addition, as The Witcher 3 was recently removed from Xbox Game Pass, giving PS Now a rather rare head start over Microsoft’s subscription service. It’s also a promising show of goodwill between Sony and CD Projekt Red, who disagreed with Cyberpunk 2077, which is still banned from sale on the PlayStation Store. Along with The Witcher 3, PS Now is also getting Virtual Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, a trio of recent Sonic games (Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces, and Team Sonic Racing), and more.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – GOTY Edition (Available until September 6)
This story-driven open-world role-playing game takes place in a visually stunning fantasy world full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. Play as a professional monster hunter tasked with finding a Child of Prophecy in a vast open world filled with merchant towns, dangerous passes and forgotten caves to explore. The Game of the Year Edition includes The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, all 16 DLCs and two expansion packs: Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine.
Kill the arrow (Available until December 6)
The card game merges with roguelike in this acclaimed fantasy battler. With hundreds of cards to choose from to build your deck and ever-changing layouts and battles, every journey is unique as you try to climb the spire. Select cards that work together to effectively send enemies and reach the top, while powerful items called relics can greatly enhance your deck through powerful interactions.
