Sony is expected to start January 2021 strong by offering some top new games as part of the next PS Now update.
Each month, the tech giant chooses which new titles to add to the streaming service, while also replacing some that are leaving it.
This month, Days Gone will be replaced by something new, and gamers are hoping it will be another PS4 first-party exclusive.
Plenty has been offered during 2020, although they are usually only available to play for several months.
Marvel’s Spider-Man was a big hit when it launched on PlayStation Now earlier this year, and there are still plenty of first-party games that could be selected.
Sony is expected to announce the replacement for Days Gone in the coming days, alongside a number of other games.
At least one of these will be an indie game, and it will be up to Sony how many titles are added to the service during 2021.
PS Now is a streaming-only service, so none of these games will need to be downloaded and installed onto your console.
It should also be noted that PS Now can also be accessed via a PC by simply downloading the official app and having a compatible controller to hand.
When it comes to the final PS Now games announcement for December, Sony is expected to make the reveal on Tuesday, January 5, 2020.
Previous months have seen earlier reveal dates chosen, so there’s always a chance for a surprise over the weekend too.
This is the same day that the new PS Plus games will be released onto the PlayStation Store, with plenty of new games to choose from.
The only downside will be that at least one PS4 game will be removed from the PlayStation Now service on the same day.
This gives gamers just a few more days to stream the title before it disappears and is replaced by something new.
For now, we know that Days Gone will be leaving the PlayStation Now service on January 5, 2020.
