That’s right, the subscription streaming gaming service is now letting users download full PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 2 games to their consoles to play offline through the service starting today, all with a single subscription.
Almost all PS4 games in the service, including Bloodborne, God of War 3 Remastered, NBA 2K16, and Until Dawn, will be available for download, in addition to the PS Now lineup of classic PS2 games remastered for PS4.
This feature will be gradually rolled out to PS Now subscribers over the next couple of days, so if you don’t see the feature on your PS Now today, make sure to check back again soon.
While PS Now is available on PC and PS4, the download option will only be offered on PS4 systems.
PlayStation Now Downloads
Downloaded PS Now games will support all user-purchased DLCs, microtransactions, and add-ons, as well as PS4 Pro enhancements for subscribers using a PS4 Pro system.
You do not need a PlayStation Plus membership for online multiplayer on PS Now – which stays the same for both streaming and downloaded games.
If you’ve already started a game via streaming on PS Now and want to continue playing locally on your PS4, you can transfer your save file from the PS Now cloud to your console with a PS Plus membership.
Note that you will need to connect your PS4 system to the internet every few days to verify your PS Now subscription, even if you’re only playing downloaded games.
