Sony’s PlayStation Now service may not be number one when it comes to hearts and minds as we head into the next generation, but Sony has one advantage over Microsoft’s Game Pass for the time being: first-party exclusives. Sony’s lineup has consistently pushed the PlayStation 4 ahead over the Xbox One in the exclusive software department. Some of those games have made their way to PS Now and January looks to continue that trend with several high profile additions from Sony’s catalog.
First announced on the PlayStation Blog, Sony has three big additions for January, including Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and Overcooked! 2. The two Sony additions will be available for download on PS4 and stream on all supported platforms until April 7, 2020, while Overcooked will be a more permanent addition to the service. They’ll be added on January 2, 2020, the same day that Grand Theft Auto 5, God of War, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and inFamous Second Son rotate out of the collection.
PlayStation Now | What games are coming to PlayStation Now in January 2020?
Horizon Zero Dawn is an open-world action game where you hunt through the ruins of a lost civilization that left behind incredible technology. As you creep out from your home village, you continue to learn the secrets of your place in this unfamiliar society. The PlayStation Now edition will include the Frozen Wilds expansion and additional bonus content.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a spin-off to Naughty Dog’s signature franchise starring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. A more compact adventure than other Uncharted games, Lost Legacy takes advantage of a unique structure to say something new. This PlayStation Now edition includes access to Uncharted 4‘s multiplayer and survival modes, meaning that current players won’t miss a beat.
Team17 and Ghost Town Games’s Overcooked! 2 continues on the four-player multiplayer fun of the first release. You play as a wide variety of chefs trying to prepare various meals in over the top situations. You can technically play on your own, but be prepared to put out a lot of fires. The game also just got yet another free holiday update that added a bevy of chefs, kitchens, and recipes.
