PS Now August 2021 games confirmed

PS Now will add 3 games in August 2021. The first is Nier: Automata, which will be available until November 1, 2021. The title offers an exciting story, combined with action RPG gameplay, set in a remote future where combat androids face a mechanical threat.

In full sci-fi style, the second game Ghostrunner challenges you to master a powerful combination: breathtaking parkour and one-shot killing mechanics. Finally, the third game Undertale takes a non-violent approach to traditional dungeon crawling gameplay.

Below you can see the trailer of the games coming to PS Now in August.

This is a more detailed description of the games, via the PlayStation Blog:

Nier: Automata

In this captivating action RPG, invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing machine lifeforms. To break the deadlock, a new breed of android infantry is sent into the fray: the YoRHa squad. Join androids 2B and 9S in their ferocious battle to reclaim an overrun dystopia and experience mesmerizing, high-speed combat that’s the specialty of development studio PlatinumGames.


Wield a blade and perform amazing parkour feats to battle your way up a megastructure tower city in this intense, fast-paced first-person adventure. Slice your enemies with a monomolecular katana, dodge bullets with your superhuman reflexes, and employ a variety of specialized techniques to prevail. One-hit one-kill mechanics make combat fast and intense. Use your superior mobility (and frequent checkpoints!) to engage in a fearless, never-ending dance with death.


In this top-down adventure, control a human who falls underground into the world of monsters. Now you must find your way out… or stay trapped forever! Explore a rich RPG world full of strange and delightful characters where violence isn’t the only answer: every enemy can be defeated nonviolently. Negotiate out of danger using a unique battle system. Dance with a slime…pet a dog…whisper your favorite secret to a knight…or ignore all of that and rain destruction upon your foes. The choices are yours—but are you determined enough to prevail?

In July, God of War, Nioh 2, Red Dead Redemption 2, Judgment, Moving Out, Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, and Nascar Heat 5 were added to PlayStation Now.
