PlayStation Now: In April with Marvel's Avengers and Borderlands 3

PlayStation Now

The Sony team announced the April update for PlayStation Now. This month, subscribers can look forward to three new games that are available from today. Among other things, Marvel's Avengers from Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics is one of the new additions for April. The superhero game was recently expanded to include Hawkeye and a PS5 version. The title will remain in the PS Now range until July 5, 2021.

Another highlight is Borderlands 3 from Gearbox. The shooter can be played by all subscribers until September 29, 2021. It is exclusively the main game of Borderlands 3. The expansions already available are not part of PS Now. The end of the April newcomers is the adventure of The Long Dark, which you can now play with your membership. As usual, PS Now gives you the choice of whether you want to stream the titles or download them directly to your console. A one-week test version for new customers can be activated at any time.

PlayStation Now April Lineup Includes Marvel's Avengers And More

It's the beginning of another new month, and that means PlayStation Now has another new batch of games available. Coming to April's PlayStation Now lineup are Marvel's Avengers, Borderlands 3, and The Long Dark.

All of the above games will be available to play starting April 6. Marvel's Avengers will be available until July 5, 2021, and Borderlands 3 will be on PSN a little longer, leaving the service on September 29, 2021. There is currently no set date for when The Long Dark will leave PSN.

Marvel's Avengers released on August 20, 2020 and is an action-RPG brawler featuring--you guessed it--Marvel characters. The latest Marvel's Avengers update, Patch 1.5.0, brought Hawkeye Clint Barton onboard as a playable character and added a campaign replay feature. Patch 1.5.0 also gave PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players a free next-gen update, promising better visuals, improved destruction and Heroic detail, and significantly faster load times.

Borderlands 3 is a loot-shooter by Gearbox. In GameSpot's Borderlands 3 review, Jordan Ramée commented, 'If you've never been a fan of the franchise, it's unlikely Borderlands 3 does enough things differently to change your mind, as the game best excels at continuing what the series has always done: deliver a humorous tall tale of misfits looting and shooting their way to heroism.' The Borderlands franchise is also getting a movie featuring Haley Bennett and Cate Blanchett, which is expected to begin production soon.

The Long Dark is a survival game--a genre that has received plenty of love as evidenced by the success of Rust and Valheim. Released in 2014, The Long Dark sets players in a freezing wilderness where the objective is to survive as long as possible.

PSN offers a seven-day free trial to players. For those who want to know more about the service, you can read our PS Now Explained article where we breakdown what you can expect.
