Sony’s PlayStation Now subscription service is making way for new games, which means only one thing: something has to get the boot. After all, with the platform being a serious bargain as it stands, it’d be impossible to host endless triple-A titles. Sadly, that means Sony is left to cut a few ties in light of a few new monsters. Unfortunately, that means one of the biggest open-world games will be getting the chop tomorrow.
Final Fantasy 15, which was published to the PS Now library back in September 2020, is due to dissolve from the service on March 1st. That means you’ve got roughly 17 hours or so to try and cram the entire campaign into your Sunday diary. I’m not saying that’s impossible — but it is a pretty hefty task. But anyway, with the plug being pulled on the Square Enix game, PS Now will be introduced to four new games for both PS4 and PS5.
What comes next?
With Detroit: Become Human appearing on the roster last month, fans are beginning to scratch chins over what could level with it in the coming days. Of course, we’ll be treated to an announcement by March 2nd. Until then, we’re only left with the promise that PS Now will induct a brand new indie title, as well as three games over both ex-gen and current-gen consoles. So, here’s hoping Sony will be maintaining its high demand with the next chapter of the service.
In other news, PS Plus subscribers will be treated to their monthly freebies in just a few days. As of March 2nd, players will be able to snatch up Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Maquette, Farpoint VR and Remnant: From the Ashes from the library. All four games will be available to download up until the beginning of April, where the carousel will begin its next round and wipe the slate clean.
Well, that’s all for now. It’s time to get out there and mop up any final quests in Final Fantasy 15 before it goes dark. Come March 2nd, we’ll be embarking on a whole new series of adventures courtesy of PlayStation. What could March bring us? Could Sony pull something just as spectacular out of the bag — or will players be disappointed with the selection? We’re overly keen to know exactly what lies behind the following doors. Please, Sony — don’t let us down on this one.
You can activate your PS Now free 7-day trial via the PlayStation Store. Otherwise, you can dive right in for a monthly cost of $9.99. PS Plus, on the other hand, will set you back an additional $9.99.
