Sony announced the new games that we will have available for Playstation Now for the month of February.
The first of these is Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which was released in 2015 to generally positive reviews. Unlike the more recent Black Ops Cold War, this game is set in the distant future, where the military has progressed to include robotic drones and cybernetically enhanced super soldiers. Apart from the campaign mode, players can enjoy the cooperative mode, the traditional Zombies mode and the competitive multiplayer mode.
Considering the number of players getting increasingly frustrated with the multiplayer mode of current Call of Duty games, it will be interesting to see if fans go back to an earlier entry. Black Ops 3 will be available on PlayStation Now until April 29.
The other is WWE 2K Battlegrounds, which will be available for a longer time until August 2. After the disastrous launch of WWE 2K20, the sequel was canceled so that more time could be devoted to the 2022 entry. Battlegrounds, a more cartoonish and arcade title, was created to serve as the 2020 entry and although it is a multiplayer game nice enough, it still feels like a minor alternative and is pretty basic.

As for the remaining four games, arguably the most recognizable of the bunch is Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain’s most recent studio title, Quantic Dream (and arguably one of their best). Players take control of three different androids in a futuristic society and the decisions they make will affect not only the lives of these androids, but possibly the world itself.
Following are two top-down action games: Darksiders Genesis, the latest entry in the Darksiders series and a spin-off / prequel to the first game, and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, where players take control of 13 characters. different in a story that covers events set before and after the first game. And finally, there is the horror puzzle game Little Nightmares, where players must help a girl named Six escape from an underwater ship named Maw, which is populated by corrupted souls eager for their next meal.
Little Nightmares 2 will be released later this month, so now is the perfect opportunity to experience the first game beforehand. While Six returns, it introduces a new playable character named Monkey and a spooky new location called Pale City to explore.
