New “Collections” Feature Comes to PS Now, Mafia 3 and Steep Join the Lineup

A new way to discover something new to stream or download from PS Now's nearly 700 game catalog

Brian Dunn's Avatar Posted by Senior Marketing Manager, PlayStation Now

The leaves are changing colors, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’m excited to tell you about the 11 new games available in PlayStation Now as of today, ready for you to download or stream on-demand.

The recently-added game download feature gives subscribers the option to download almost all of the 230 PS4 games in the service (and all of the PS2 games as well), in order to play locally with DLC and add-on support (DLC and other add-ons sold separately). And starting today, we are starting to roll out Collections, a new way to browse the full library of nearly 700 games as well. Here you can find the entire catalog grouped into different collections based on platform, genres, and themes.

PlayStation Now Collections

From the main PS Now screen, press the Circle button and move to the Browse tab to start exploring. This feature will be rolling out to more users over the next week, so you may not see the option right away.

Leading this month’s batch of new PS Now games is Mafia 3. Set in 1968, this epic open-world game lets you build a criminal empire and seek revenge against the mafia gang that wiped out the closest thing you had to a family. Stream the game, or download it to your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 4 Pro. Downloading the game also allows you to use any of the free and paid DLC available for the game (paid DLC sold separately).

Also available new this month is Steep: explore a gorgeous open-world mountain range with snowboards, skis, wingsuits, and paragliders, compete and complete challenges, ride solo or with friends, and create your own paths down the mountain. Strap in, suit up, and drop in.

Other new games this month include the quirky puzzle platformer LocoRoco Remastered, the intense 2.5D anime fighter Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, and unique titles like the top-down dungeon crawling RPG Vikings: Wolves of Midgard and the turn-based RPG Battle Chasers: Nightwar.
A complete list of all the new games available to stream on PS4 and PC, and download to PS4, includes:

  • Baja Edge of Control HD
  • Battle Chasers: Nightwar
  • Destroy All Humans! (PS2)
  • Destroy All Humans! 2 (PS2)
  • Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2
  • Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland (PS2)
  • LocoRoco Remastered
  • Mafia 3
  • Steep
  • Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
  • World to the West

Check out the seven-day free trial for PS4 and PC to experience the streaming service today. PS Now provides unlimited on-demand access to a growing library of nearly 700 games, with streaming for all games and download access to most PS4 and PS2 games in the library. (Terms apply. New Subscribers only. Credit card required. See here for details.)

Stay tuned for more updates on PS Now. Happy gaming!

Hey Brian, missing part of your anchor tag in the final paragraph.

Any chance you could bring the PS Now app back to smart TVs? I have a Sony smart tv, and it would be amazingly convenient to be able to use PS Now on it.

    It was really shortsighted to ditch all the other platforms for a streaming service. The entire benefit of such a service is having it available on as many platforms as possible. If they had kept it on PS3, for instance, then we could’ve gotten downloadable stuff on there too. But their main issue with that one was the lack of an actual PS Now app so you had to go through the god awful PS Store. :/

    They still should’ve kept support up. Surely backend support doesn’t require that much to keep running. Netflix still works on Vita and they never update that for example, despite having done extensive updates to the service and UI on countless other platforms. Get it to the point it can at least live on without any additional effort and then focus UI improvements on PS4/PC and leave the rest to what works. I don’t know. The fewer options to stream with the lamer the service is to me.

THANK YOU for the UI change! Happy to see more improvement with this service like with the addition of downloads. But there should be way more exclusives. Theres no reason why exclusives that are at least 3 years old shouldn’t already be on PS Now.
Games like:
Jak & Daxter (1-X)
Ratchet & Clank Collection
PS All Stars Battle Royale
Twisted Metal Black
Drive Club
Gran Turismo 6
The Order: 1886
inFamous Second Son/First Light
Little Big Planet 3
But happy to see the improvements

Was hoping for more JRPG games. Guess not. Well dunno about Vikings Wolves of Midgard and Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Guess I try those.

Thanks for the update. The services keeps getting better. I do miss the ability to play on the Vita. Would be great if you brought the service back to Vita, or even better, give us a new PlayStation Phone with a Vita style Form Factor. Then let us stream over 4G and 5G once available.

Kindly bring the backward support to PS1/PS2 classic titles to the PS4 at least <3

by allowing us to download bought PSN titles on PS4

I’m a PS fanboy by all means, but I’m gonna have to be honest and say that Xbox GamePass is a much better service in both offerings, usability and price… especially since you have get it half price a few times per year.

Please update the PC app so you can actually search games.

Got disconnected earlier today on PS4 and couldn’t get back on, happened during autosave. Does PS Now automatically disconnected as soon as we do or does it hang for a bit so that any autosaving features will finish?

I still think it should hold your connection for a good 10 minutes so you can reconnect and save or continue playing rather than booting you entirely when you lose a connection. Not that it would’ve did me good today. Luckily my save is fine just checked on PC.

    Oh but I hate the ingame menu change, makes it such a pain to sync my PS3 trophies now.

I heard there was going to be a remake of The Legend of Dragoon.

Too bad it was a dream though. More on topic, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is a great game.

Getting closer and closer to being the Netflix for video games

Oh by the way, don’t think that PS4 versions are “upgrades”. Let us choose. Because you can gain a lot of subs from trophy hunters having multiple versions of the same game up. Plus, sometimes the PS3 version was better since the port/remaster wasn’t good.

PS now on the vita was my favorite! Make a phone app or put it back on the vita? When PS5 comes out update PSvita so that it can remote play PS5. Vita means life
