PlayStation Now Adding Marvel’s Avengers, Borderlands 3, And The Long Dark This Month

PS Now is adding some huge games this month, as Marvel’s Avengers, Borderlands 3, and The Long Dark are all arriving on April 6. Borderlands 3 will remain on PS Now until September 29, with Avengers disappearing much earlier on July 5.

Marvel’s Avengers has had a difficult time finding and retaining players, although its inclusion in PlayStation’s subscription service might help it rope in a few more would-be superheroes.

Meanwhile, Borderlands 3 continues to be as popular as ever. Its upcoming Director’s Cut DLC drops later this week, introducing a new murder mystery questline and a challenging new raid boss.

The Long Dark might not be as well-known as the other two on the list, but was well-reviewed when it first launched in 2014. The first-person survival title does not have an expiration date, so you might want to give Borderlands 3 and Marvel’s Avengers a play before diving into this tense survival game.

Here’s a bit more about the three games coming to PS Now on April 6:

Borderlands 3

Featuring guns, guns, and more guns, Borderlands 3 sees you diving into yet another loot-driven FPS experience. Along the way, you’ll chat with the adorably annoying Claptrap, build up an arsenal of powerful weapons, and shoot down hordes of enemies. Playable as either a solo or co-op adventure, Borderlands 3 is likely to be a popular addition to the PS Now roster.

Marvel’s Avengers

Marvel’s Avengers is a third-person action-adventure game that is cut from the same cloth as Borderlands. Grinding for better loot will take up most of your playtime – although the fun is best experienced with a few friends by your side. The game has added a few new characters since launch, with Black Panther expected to join later this year.

The Long Dark

This solo survival game will see you struggling through the frozen aftermath of a global disaster. You won’t find any zombies here, just challenging weather and the usual assortment of terrifying natural threats.

PS Now is offering a free trial of the service starting on April 7.
