BioShock, Borderlands games arrive on PlayStation Now

New, 6 comments

Four games have been added to the service

The PlayStation Now catalog just received two major franchises: BioShock and Borderlands. According to the PlayStation Blog, subscribers to Sony's PlayStation game streaming service can now access Borderlands and Borderlands 2, as well as all three BioShock titles (BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite).

BioShock Infinite was previously available on PlayStation Now, but this marks the first appearance of the other two BioShock games on a current generation system. Back in September, a retailer leaked the existence of a supposed BioShock Collection comprising all the games in the series. A release date of Nov. 27 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was mentioned, but the game was never confirmed and missed that window.

Borderlands fans, on the other hand, have been able to play games from that franchise on PlayStation 4 thanks to Borderlands: The Handsome Jack Collection. That set includes both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

In its most recent update, PlayStation Now added more than a hundred titles to its backlog. Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios' president Shuhei Yoshida has time and again confirmed that PlayStation Now will serve as the primary method of delivering older titles to PlayStation 4, but the recent announcement that Sony is working on bringing classic PS2 titles to PS4 might change the status of backward compatibility for the system.

The post on PlayStation Blog mentions further announcements regarding the service to come at this weekend's PlayStation Experience, which kicks off Dec. 5 in San Francisco.
