PlayStation Now adds horror games Until Dawn, Dead Island, and more

In the recent past, Sony made the horror game Until Dawn available to PlayStation Plus subscribers for free, and now it is finally adding it to PlayStation Now. This on-demand service allows subscribers to access a huge library of games that are available to stream instantly over the Internet, and it now includes more horror games just in time for Halloween.

Not familiar with PlayStation Now? It is something like Netflix, only for games, presenting subscribers with an online game library. These games are available at all times to the subscriber, but they don't require downloading. Instead, the subscriber can play the games by streaming them directly over the Internet. The big limitation, obviously, being that you need a sufficient Internet connection to use the service, otherwise it won't let you access the game.

PlayStation Now has hundreds of games at this point, and Sony is doing a good job of slowly expanding the number. This most recent addition, listed below, is primarily composed of horror and suspense games, though there are a couple not-scary mysteries tossed into the mix. All but one are PS4 games.

The full list is below:
