The last few months have been huge for Sony’s alternative to the Xbox Games Pass. The arrival of titles like Nier: Automata and Red Dead Redemption 2 has fans riled up in anticipation of the PS Now September update.
While there’s been a delay in announcing exactly what titles are coming for PS Now, we do have some educated guesses about Sony’s plans for September’s PS Plus free games.

When will September’s PS Now games be announced?
The new PS Now games typically launch during the first week of the month, and we expect that trend to continue. It’s worth noting that CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3 will be leaving the service on September 6, so that may clue us in as to the arrival date of the new games as well. While we may not know exactly what’s coming, new titles in past months have included major releases such as God of War, indie-darling Undertale, and Guerilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn.
