PS Now’s November Lineup: an Indie Bonanza!

It's an indie bonanza on PS4's game-streaming service! Reminder: you can try for free with a seven-day trial.

Whether you’re looking for a change of pace from all of the massive blockbusters launching this month, or missed these games the first time around, Indie Bonanza month on PlayStation Now has your gaming needs covered. We’re launching 20 new PlayStation 4 indie games into the service today, including beautiful masterpieces like Abzu and thought-provoking adventures like This War of Mine: The Little Ones.

New This Month

From some of the artistic minds behind Journey and Flower (both of which are also available on PS Now) comes Abzu, a beautiful underwater adventure set in a vibrant ocean world full of hundreds of colorful species and ancient secrets hidden in the mysterious depths.

This War of Mine: The Little Ones is a gritty and engaging experience inspired by real-life events. Set in the middle of a war, make unforgiving and emotionally repercussive life-or-death decisions for a group of civilians trying to survive.

Joining Grim Fandango Remastered is the classic Day of the Tentacle Remastered, a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game. Enjoy the unique steampunk cybercrime caper about breaking into buildings, hacking security, and stealing cash in The Swindle. In the side-scrolling shooter The Final Station, survive the threat to humanity by riding the rails, finding fuel, facing infected hordes, and saving other survivors.

Play as Hope, a woman trying to escape a totalitarian state by hacking an elaborate surveillance network and traversing an intricate web of danger and deception in Republique. For something a little more fast paced, try Ziggurat, a colorful dungeon-crawling first person rogue-like RPG shooter. Or become Aragami, a vengeful spirit with the power to control shadows, taking out enemies with supernatural abilities and brutal stealth attacks.

Other unique indie titles new to PS Now this month include The Deer God, Nom Nom Galaxy, Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure, Forestry 2017, Electronic Super Joy, and many more. Of course PS Now is already home to a fantastic selection of indie games for PS4 and PS3, including such games as Helldivers, Broken Age, Journey, Dead Nation: Apocalypse, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Flower, Resogun, The Unfinished Swan, and interactive adventures from Telltale Games like The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Game of Thrones.

Have you been enjoying Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, which were added to the PS Now library in September? Well, I have a surprise: next month we have another handful of great titles coming from Bethesda, including Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion!

Where is PlayStation All Stars. I am still shocked and disappointed that my favorite PS3 exclusive isn’t on the service yet, while almost every other PS3 exclusive is there.

I will resubscribe to the service once PlayStation All Stars gets added.

    Because people use and like it? Not everything needs to be made for you to do well.

Ok, you have one more month to convince me to renew for another year.
If it’s games like this then I’m cancelling.These games are on PC too… What’s the point?

Would love to see more JRPGs put on PS Now, such as Tales of, Nier, et cetera. =)

    Same, I would love to see more JRPGs. I know it’s a pretty niche genre, but there’s some popular ones and they have hours of fun and great stories. I pretty much played all the JRPGs already available, at least the ones I was interested in. I loved that the Atelier series was added, I was hoping the other 3 older Atelier games will sometime be available: Rorona, Meruru, and Totori. I haven’t played these yet.

    Well, let’s wait and see. It seems like they want to release some WRPGs instead since they’re more popular.

Keep ’em coming. I’m really glad I took advantage of the $99 annual subscription offer.

If PS Now was not limited to 720p and weak audio, I’d consider it. As it is, I prefer the Xbox equivalent, where you simply download the full game and play it as is and not water-downed like PS Now. That’s the most disappointing aspect of PS Now, and a dealbreaker for many I imagine. That and the somewhat inflated price.
