PS Now is preparing for a monthly update with PS Now for December, so what’s new on PlayStation’s subscription service? 

PS Now may have been slow to find its feet, but PlayStation’s subscription service does keep getting better. Recent months have included the likes of The Last of Us Part II, Red Dead Redemption, and Mafia: Definitive Edition, alongside classic Final Fantasy games – and there’s another one of those coming in December.

Don’t forget, PS Now is a separate membership to PS Plus – so if you’re a member of both, you’ll get even more games each month.

When will PS Now December games be announced?

The PS Now games typically launch during the first week of the month, and we expect that trend to continue with PS Now for December. Sony has been revealing games later and later, though, so it could even be a little further into the month before we find out what we’re playing. For now, we’d expect it to be announced on December 6th.

We do already know that GTA III Remastered is coming to PS Now in December, though, with GTA San Andreas Remastered coming to Xbox Game Pass in November. Whether the GTA Trilogy’s controversial launch will change those plans, though, is anyone’s guess.


The games are always announced on PlayStation’s Blog, but here are the ones we know of so far:

  • GTA III Remastered
  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD

Slay the Spire will be leaving the service in December, too.

If you’re itching for new games to play, though, you’ll find new PS Plus games announced at the end of November like clockwork.

What is PlayStation Now?

PlayStation Now, better known as PS Now, is Sony’s subscription service that allows players to play hundreds of games from PS4, PS3, and even PS2 libraries.

While it’s a shame there aren’t PS5 games included, the service has gone from offering games via streaming to offering a growing number as downloads – so there’s a solution for everyone.


It’s worth noting that PS Now is a separate product from PS Plus, so you’ll have to pay for both services.

How to join PS Now

If you want to take advantage of these games while they’re available, here’s what you need to do.

  1. On the home screen of your PlayStation console, scroll over to your Library on the far right side and open it
  2. Scroll down to Applications and find PS Now. You’ll be able to browse the available titles without paying for a subscription.
  3. If you find something you like, click on it. This should bring up the appropriate payment form and prompt.

All of these new additions, combined with the unparalleled library of classic titles make PS Now a better deal every single month – so be sure to sign up in time for the PS Now December games.
