10 Telltale Games Join PS Now Subscription This Month

James Martin's Avatar Posted by on Mar 01, 2016 // Director of Marketing, PS Now

Telltale Games — known for its riveting storytelling, evocative graphics, and intuitive gameplay — will be adding 10 games to the ever-expanding PlayStation Now subscription catalog this month.

We’ll understand if you choose to run (not walk) to your nearest PlayStation Now-enabled device to start playing instant classics such as The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Jurassic Park: The Game, Tales of Monkey Island, or Tales from the Borderlands.

Once you finish playing Tales from the Borderlands, jump right into the games that first introduced Gearbox’s beautifully twisted world of Pandora, the Atlas Corporation, and of course, Handsome Jack, with Borderlands 1 and 2.

Without further ado, see below for each of the Telltale Games available with your PlayStation Now subscription.

The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season
Play as Lee Everett, a convicted criminal who has been given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to maintain their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell.

The Walking Dead: Season Two — Episodes 1 & 2 (New)
Season Two continues the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned by the undead apocalypse. Left to fend for herself, she has been forced to learn how to survive in a world gone mad. Many months have passed since the events seen in Season One of The Walking Dead, and Clementine is searching for safety. But what can an ordinary child do to stay alive when the living can be just as bad — and sometimes worse — than the dead?

Tales from the Borderlands — Episodes 1 & 2 (New)
Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, this is a story full of Borderlands trademark humor, following two adventurers on their quest for greatness. You’ll play as Rhys, a Hyperion suit with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle.

The Wolf Among Us (New)
Fairytale characters are being murdered in this hard-boiled, violent, and mature thriller based on the award-winning Fables comic book series (DC Comics/Vertigo) by Bill Willingham. As Bigby Wolf — the big bad wolf — you will discover that a brutal, bloody murder is just a taste of things to come in a game series where your every decision can have enormous consequences.

Jurassic Park: The Game (New)
Security systems have failed and the creatures of the park roam free. Now, a rogue corporation will stop at nothing to acquire the embryos stolen and lost by Dennis Nedry. Experience a brand new adventure and see new areas and dinosaurs in this landmark game set during the events of the first Jurassic Park movie.

Tales from Monkey Island (New)
Sabers, skullduggery, romance! Tales of Monkey Island has it all! While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend’s expelled voodoo. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat pirate hunter and a creepy Frenchman who believes that Guybrush’s eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities.

Poker Night 2 (New)
The chips are down and the ante is up in this sentence already bursting with poker clichés! Take the fifth seat in Poker Night 2, at a table featuring Claptrap (Borderlands 2), Brock Samson (The Venture Bros.), Ash (Army of Darkness) and Sam (Sam and Max series). Your dealer is GLaDOS (Portal), but at no point will you be considered as a candidate for a visit to Aperture Science’s Enrichment Center. Unless you lose.

Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse (New)
Wield psychic powers against fearsome foes in this epic comedy saga. In The Devil’s Playhouse, an otherworldly power for controlling matter and space calls to the strongest and strangest who might wield it — intergalactic warlords and eldritch gods, under-dwellers and scholars of the arcane. Gaming’s greatest dog and rabbit sleuths, Sam & Max, seek the power’s ancient secrets.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space (New)
Join the Freelance Police for a 2nd season of adventure, crime fighting, and chaos! Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space is a harrowing adventure from the North Pole to the Fountain of Youth, from outer space to Hell and back. Babies will dance. Mariachis will sing. A giant battle robot will trash the streets. And when their friends are caught in the middle, Sam & Max will risk their very souls to set things right.

Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People (New)
Charming. Suave. Muscular. The Hottest. These are just a few of the words that Strong Bad uses to describe himself. In 5 actionsodes of perpetual awesome, Strong Bad claims his throne as the King of Style.

Puzzle Agent (New)
When inquiries about Scoggins Eraser Co. are answered only with curious puzzles, Nelson Tethers of the U.S. Department of Puzzle Research is sent on the case. As he overcomes logic puzzles, mazes, and riddles, he soon realizes that these — along with the townspeople, secret societies, and mysterious sounds from the forest — are intimately connected to the core conundrum.


Short of visiting your long-lost billionaire uncle’s house, there may be no better way to get instant access to hundreds of PlayStation games than the 7-Day Free Trial to PS Now. Epic adventures like The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season, Tales from the Borderlands, The Wolf Among Us, and more than 300 other games are all included as part of the PS Now subscription. So what are you waiting for?

Stay tuned for an exciting bunch of games next month!

Very cool additions to the library this month. Keep the games coming! I would love to see PS Now continue evolving to include PS1, PS2, and PS4 games.

This looks awesome! Can you bring this service to Android phones and Apple devices eventually?


     

    + Ricen-Beans on March 1st, 2016 at 10:37 am said:

    I second this. Would love this service to come to tablets. At least the Sony tablets but ideally ALL tablets and phones. Service works great on Vita but I want to be able to play on a bigger screen and with a DS4.

The only reason why I’m asking if it can come to Android and iOS is just because pstv is discontinued so that might affect PS now devices since no one new can get one

    Hi skorge16 – As you probably know, PlayStation Now can currently be used across quite a few devices — including PS4, PS3, PS Vita and select Sony Bravia and Samsung Smart TVs. Hopefully players will be able to get access to the service through one or more of these!

    What about other top publishers/developers and game series that are missing from the subscription library? They all have been requested by users before for months/years…

    PS1, PS2 and PS4 games…

    Any update on PS Now coming to other devices?
    – Yes, we already know it’s been on the same few devices (PS4, PS3, PS Vita and select Sony Bravia and Samsung Smart TVs) for a long time…

Wow Telltale Games are everywhere, Even on Ps now but Not on VITA.. Cant understand why….

Also PLEASE IMPROVE PS NOW FOR VITA , i have a 3mb (upload speed) and still have issues like drope connection and imput lag..
Im tired to come here to pray for more attention and a bit of support from a blog that is supoused to be “For the players”
VITA Owners are “players” and spend Money like every ps4 owner…
did you know that Sony ??

    Upload speed has nothing to do with PS Now. The only thing you upload is your Dual Shock input, and that is VERY little data. What DOES affect your PS Now experience is:
    1.) Your download speed. You need at least 12-15mb in order to download all 20-30fps every second.
    2.) Your ping (latency). This is how long it takes for your device to communicate with the server. The larger the ping, the longer it takes for the server to react to your commands and send the corresponding changes to you.
    3.) Your packet loss. WiFi is inherently poop at streaming games. You can stream movies just fine over WiFi as the system downloads frames far in advance. If your signal degrades and you lose packets, you do not notice this as it has time to resend the packet (you don’t actually view the downloaded frame for quite some time). However, video games are unable to cache frames in advance. The system renders frames in real time, as the content is dynamically generated for every action you make vs static.

    Since WiFi = poop for streaming; the Vita = poop for PS Now. Your options are:
    1.) Deal with it (Save often).
    2.) Play on PS4/PS3/ Other supported Devices with Ethernet
    3.) Play it on the Vita TV.

It sounds like something pretty exciting is in the works for next months PS Now content release. Very exciting to be a part of this service! Can’t wait!

Can you at least fix the app for PS Vita??? It’s laggy and slow through the menu games run fine though


     

    + Sabvre on March 1st, 2016 at 4:04 pm said:

    Vita is on WiFi, and so, is kinda screwed. WiFi suffers from signal degradation and thus drops data that is sent to and from the device.

    If you want to continue using the Vita for PS Now, stay as close to the router as you can (best signal) and save often; otherwise, switch to a device that uses Ethernet.

Would love it we could get a Rockstar update. Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, L.A. Noire, Max Payne 3 etc.

This is a positive step but there are some popular and obvious titles PS Now must add, such as Demons Souls and Dark Souls. Many fans of Bloodborne would love to play these titles on PS4. You’re missing out on new members by not adding titles like these.

When episode 1 of most TTG episodic series’ are just about always free. having access to episodes 1 & 2 only isn’t much to write home about. Puzzle Agent and Sam & Max are always winners in my book.

I got most those Games for only $1 on Flash Sales. The Wolf Among Us and the walking dead season 2 for only 4 something each. Thanks flash sales Ha. Great Games.

Hey James,

As long as you’re reading this I would love for you guys to add partner up with Bandai/Namco and add Dark Souls 1&2.

While you’re at it adding Demon’s souls from the fine folks at Atlus would also be awesome.

Sincerely,

2 words for ya. Rip off!!!


     

    + yunggunn80 on March 1st, 2016 at 4:33 pm said:

    Yeah, instant access to an ever expanding library of almost 400 games streamed to multiple devices for less than the price of Netfli. Totally sounds like a ripoff to me. I’ve got 2 words for ya: More-On.


     

    + michelangelo74 on March 2nd, 2016 at 2:50 pm said:

    Definitely not a rip-off but still a little expensive to subscribe for anything longer than a 3 month period or so.

    I’m hoping they bring the annual back for $99 which would make this around the cost of over streaming entertainment services today.

You know, PSN used to be the paid game subscription service, now it is a $50+ paid “service” that allows players to connect with other players and use their own box as a host.

Now, you charge an extra service for getting “free” games each month, despite your PSN+ customers ALREADY paying you.

Shame on you, Sony.

Thanks for good update! Only one Telltale game I am missing here is Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures.
Tips for next months – Namco, Rockstar, Sega.


     

    + BrownJoey on March 2nd, 2016 at 9:02 pm said:

    Telltale no longer has the license to distribute Wallace and Gromit; the only way to purchase it is to pick up a disc copy.

Just tried Playstation Now and it’s great!

I was going to pull the trigger and sign up but $44 for 3 months seems a little steep for something I’d like to subscribe to annually.

Great service though, it performed well across my PS3, Ps4 and Vita.

Any plans for Sony to bring back the annual subscription for $99?

Honestly, I still play my ps3 more than my ps4. I just haven’t had that much reason to play it (some indie games here and there (which have been amazing)), and a lot of the games I see coming up on PS Now, I would love to play, but I already own them on ps3. I have both; why not just push the ps button on a slightly different controller? There’s just not that much incentive to join for us continuously loyal ps fans. I understand PSNow for those who opted for 360 instead of the ps3 switching to ps4, but for us who have owned all the formats (and still do), it just doesn’t make as much sense.

Hey I’ve asked this before and people thought I was talking about streaming a game on Vita but I was really talking about the interface catalog menu on the Vita it is really slow when scrolling through the game catalog and I would really like the PS now menu to be like ps4 or at least full speed not for streaming games just the PS now catalog menu

And I’m really not enjoying my experience with PS Vita since the PS now system interface (not the games) is extremely slow if the PS Vita app dousnt get updated or tweaked so that interface is faster I won’t keep my subscription so plzzz Sony fix the app!
