Sony has announced on the PlayStation Blog that BioShock and Borderlands are the latest series to join its cloud-based streaming service, PlayStation Now.
As of today, the following games are now available to enjoy via the service:
- Borderlands (New!)
- Borderlands 2 (New!)
- BioShock (New!)
- BioShock 2 (New!)
- BioShock Infinite (Existing)
Borderlands takes place on the hostile planet of Pandora, and combines action-packed shooting with RPG elements, delivering an addictive gameplay experience as you embark on a quest for a legendary alien technology known as The Vault. The sequel introduces a brilliant co-op mode for up to four players, with more weapons up for grabs as you battle against deadly new creatures and face off against the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack.
BioShock meanwhile takes place in the underwater city of Rapture, and features complex moral choices married with gripping first-person combat and a compelling storyline. The sequel shifts things up with the player stepping into the mighty boots of the iconic Big Daddy, as you chase down a mysterious new foe and uncover the secrets of Rapture’s long-deserted halls. BioShock Infinity, the most recent entry in the series, sees gamers thrust into the city of Columbia as hired gun, Booker DeWitt, as he attempts to clear his debt by rescuing a mysterious girl named Elizabeth.
PlayStation Now is available for varying subscription fees, including a one-month plan for $19.99 or a three-month option for $44.99. In addition, you can also opt to rent games for four days, seven days, 30 days, or 90 days if you don’t fancy forking out for a regular subscription. In the U.K., PS Now will cost you a monthly fee of £12.99. Currently, the service offers PS3 games to its users, although there are plans to make available PSOne, PS2, and PS4 titles at some point down the line.
Early last month, the U.S. service was upgraded with a massive 105 new titles, including 21 games from Capcom alone, such as Resident Evil, Dead Rising, and Street Fighter.
