The October Update for PS Now has added ten contemporary games into its growing library of titles, along with a reset of their 7 day trial for the service.

All of the games added are PlayStation 4 titles, to help bolster the PS4 Game Download Feature added to the service last week. The major title with this group of games is the popular Bethesda MMO The Elder Scrolls Online (without any of the DLC or Expansion Packs), which will be available for download along with Sniper Elite 4, Bound and Styx: Shards of Darkness.  The full list of ten games is as follows:

  • 100ft Robot Golf
  • Asdivine Hearts
  • Bound
  • Bridge Constructor
  • Carmageddon: Max Damage
  • Ducati: 90th Anniversary
  • Elder Scrolls Online
  • Sniper Elite 4
  • Styx: Shards of Darkness
  • Torment: Tides of Numenera

Sony has also upgraded two PlayStation 3 titles, Costume Quest 2 and Machinarium, to their PlayStation 4 versions. In total, over 220+ PlayStation 4 games are now under the PS Now service.

In addition to the brand new games, Sony is offering its 7-day trial period again for previous players. Anyone who is not subscribed to PS Now as of October 2nd can once again test out the service for free, including streaming for all games in the PS Now library. This also includes players who already used the trial, so those who already did the trial now have a second chance to try it out all over again.

It should be noted that a credit card is required for the PS Now trial, and will auto-renew at $19.99 a month once the trial ends.

PlayStation Now provides streaming services and games on demand from previous Sony Consoles, most notably the PlayStation 3. Recently they added the ability to download PlayStation 4 games directly, bringing the total amount of games now on the service to over 650 titles.
