PlayStation Now, November 2020

PlayStation Now, November 2020
PlayStation Now is the protagonist in November 2020 of a particularly rich and interesting update, with several games of great depth: a way to worthily greet the debut of PS5 in stores and push subscriptions?

What is the reason for such a substantial update, there is certainly something to be excited about. In fact, titles such as RAGE 2, F1 2020, Injustice 2 and Kingdom Come: Deliverance enter the catalog of the streaming platform, but not only: there are also Warhammer: Vermintide 2 and My Time at Portia.


Set several years after the events of the first episode, RAGE 2 throws us into a post-apocalyptic scenario dominated by violence, with groups of marauders patrolling the now lawless streets. As Walker, the last Ranger still alive, we must build alliances and organize a last, devastating attack that frees the planet from the threat of Authority.

The game, characterized by an excellent gunplay, in the 'context of a combat system that alternates various very well-made weapons and the devastating powers that we can unlock during the campaign, will therefore see us engaged in missions focused on convincing three important commanders to join forces to make a common front and challenge the army of the evil general Cross.

Unlike the original RAGE, the structure in this case is set up as a freely navigable open world, with the ability to move from one point to another using different vehicles in the first place the Phoenix armored car assigned to us at the beginning of the story. However, forget about being able to drive in complete tranquility: as mentioned, the roads are manned by dangerous marauders that we will have to fight with ramming, machine gun bursts and search missiles.

Unfortunately, it is precisely the open world component that disappoints, in the sense that the guide sections leave the time they find and above all the duration of the campaign turns out to be surprisingly short for a product of this kind, with less than ten hours to get to the credits. However, the quality of the firefights and their spectacular frenzy makes the title of Avalanche Studios an experience to try.

F1 2020

As the operations for the acquisition of Codemasters from part of Take-Two, the last licensed racer of the English team, F1 2020, arrives on PS Now: an episode full of interesting news, naturally updated to the new season and capable of consolidating the excellent technical sector that we had already appreciated in the previous ones editions.

After the introduction of Formula 2, the developers have seen fit this year to create a new single player campaign, the Team Career, which will see us build a Formula 1 team from scratch and compete with the real teams in a path that will gradually lead us to develop the car, find important sponsors, recruit good drivers and close the races in the points.

Injustice 2

The spectacular fighting game at NetherRealm Studios matches catapult us once again into the disturbing alternate universe where Superman has gone mad and has given birth to a world totalitarian state to crack down on crimes before they are even committed, forcing Batman and other rebel heroes to oppose it vision.

In Injustice 2, however, the main threat comes from afar: it is the terrible Brainiac, who after destroying Krypton invades the planet Earth to absorb its resources and condemn it to death. The only way to stop him is to join forces with the help of Supergirl, Green Lantern, Cyborg and even some of DC's most famous villains.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Available in the limited-time PlayStation Now catalog until May 3, 2021, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an action RPG set in the 15th century Kingdom of Bohemia and tells the story of Henry, a young plebeian who finds himself helplessly witnessing the massacre of his parents and swears that one day he will have his revenge.

Welcomed by a noble family, the protagonist of the title developed by Warhorse learns to fight but also to behave with diplomacy, soon becoming a knight and taking part in spectacular battles in the midst of a bloody conflict between two kings. Equipped with a compelling narrative sector and extraordinary atmospheres, Kingdom Come: Deliverance stands as an unmissable experience if the Middle Ages fascinates you.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2

The last episode of the Fatshark's cooperative action series again engages us in epic battles to defend the kingdom, still threatened by hordes of Skaven and dark creatures, putting us in the shoes of the five heroes of Ubersreik: the mercenary Markus Kruber, the dwarf warrior Bardin Goreksson, the elven fighter Kerillian, the witch hunter Victor Saltzpyre and the sorceress Sienna Fuegonasus.

The thirteen missions that make up the gripping campaign of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 introduce random and unexpected mechanics for the generation of waves of enemies and powerful bosses , but also and above all a new progression system that will allow us to unlock two extra classes for each character and thus change not only their appearance but also their skills.

My Time at Portia

The new title created by Pathea Games, clearly inspired by the cartoons of Studio Ghibli, opens the doors of a colorful city that we will have the task of bringing back to the ancient splendor, contributing with our shop to brighten the life of its inhabitants, interacting with them and engaging in various activities.

My Time at Portia is a life simulator-style experience made of gradually more complex tasks, management phases, crafting, creative customizations and even fighting in the underground areas of the city: a loop that captures after a few minutes thanks to a mix of immediacy and variety that is not affected by the only discreet technical realization.
