What PlayStation Now Has in Store for Members This January

PS Now January Games
PS Now January Games Sony PlayStation

PlayStation Now is starting 2022 with a bang as it offers six games, all playable starting today. Today, we'll take a look at those six titles.

Before we go into that, some of you may be wondering what's the difference between PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus. PS Plus is a subscription that's pretty much necessary for those who want to access a core game feature like online multiplayer. PS Now is a different platform that serves as a game streaming service. It allows members to access a bunch of PS games and then stream. So, PS Now gives players access to games they don't own and play them with no downloads needed.

PS Plus does have its own benefits and you can read more about their January offerings here.

Back to PS Now, for this month one of the games is Mortal Kombat 11. This is the 11th installment of the franchise and follows the consequences of Raiden’s actions. With the story focusing on the manipulation of time, warriors meet their former selves and question everything they know about Mortal Kombat.

If that’s too violent, then there’s Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. In this game, the Kingdom of Dalmasca has been left in ruins after being conquered by the Archadian Empire. The remaining heir to the throne, Princess Ashe, vows to liberate the country. Along the way, she meets a young man named Vaan and they become unlikely allies and companions in a quest to free their homeland.

Another available in January is the fast-paced rogue-like game Fury Unleashed. Play solo or with friends through local or online co-op. There is also Unturned, where players take on the role of a survivor in a world infested with zombies. Work with friends and develop alliances to survive the undead.

On the list for January as well is Super Time Force Ultra, an action-packed platformer that offers an excellent twist. Players get to control time and make use of it on the battlefield. They can rewind time, for example, and then join again in the action while teaming up with their past selves. There’s a total of 19 distinct characters and six different time periods to battle.

Last but not least is Kerbal Space Program: Enhanced Edition. Control an alien race known as Kerbals and see if you can build a fully-functional spacecraft from scratch. What makes this game unique is the use of realistic aerodynamic and orbital physics.

What do you think? Is this a good deal?
