Sony's PlayStation Now service allows users to stream PlayStation 3 games to a variety of platforms, including both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Now it seems 50 new games will be joining that service, with publisher 2K leading the charge on this one.

The main focus is on the new push of 2K's games. Many of their games make up the titles joining the subscription service. Among those included are four games making their debut on PlayStation Now: The Darkness II, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Spec Ops: The Line, and Duke Nukem Forever. All four of these games haven't been available on PlayStation Now before (in Duke Nukem Forever's case probably for a good reason). Other 2K games joining the subscription service include the entire Bioshock series, the entire Borderlands series, X-Com: Enemy Within and NBA 2k14.

If you're looking for non-2K games joining the service, there's a good amount of those as well. Three games from the Air Conflict series, CounterSpy, Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard (a particularly funny choice considering the addition of Duke Nukem Forever), Of Orcs and Men, Rain, and Thomas Was Alone are all included in the additions. In a strange move Telltale appears to be adding a few of their episodic games as well, but only a few episodes. Back to the Future: The Game will only have its first episode added to the service, while Game of Thrones will only have its first two. They did similar back in March with The Walking Dead: Season 2 and Tales From the Borderlands.

If you haven't subscribed to PlayStation Now before, now is a good time to jump in as Sony is also offering a sale on the 3-month subscription to the service. Normally $44.99, for the next week the 3-month subscription to PlayStation Now will be on sale for $29.99. You can also sign up for a 7-day free trial to the service, if you'd just like to test how it works.
