Sony has announced that, beginning this week, PlayStation Now will add support for streaming 1080p capable games.
PlayStation shared the news on Twitter, confirming that the rollout will take place over “the next several weeks across Europe, US, Canada, and Japan, where PlayStation Now is available.”
Up until this change, PlayStation Now only supported streaming of up to 720p for its over 800 games. The service also allows for over 300 PS4 games to be downloaded to your console with resolutions of up to 4K.
Those subscribed will be able to take advantage of games like Marvel’s Avengers, Borderlands 3, and The Long Dark, which were just add earlier this month.
While this is a definite improvement to PlayStation Now, it’s important to remember that, despite the service being available on PS5, only PS4, PS3, and PS2 titles are currently available.
This news follows another announcement from Sony that it is partnering with ProbablyMonsters to become the exclusive publishing partner for the Firewalk Studios’ first game, which is set to be a AAA multiplayer game.
