Outer Wilds is perhaps the biggest and most revered one of the bunch. It is an action-adventure game that puts players in the shoes of a species exploring space for the first time. However, they are stuck in a 22-minute time loop, which ends with the sun going supernova each time. Players must explore the solar system they’re in and uncover the mysteries of the time loop, as well as the history behind their creation as a whole. It was lauded for its freeform gameplay that lets players figure things out.

For those looking for more racing titles, WRC 10 FIA World Rally Championship is also set to hit the service, and is the latest rally racing game to come out. The game acts as the official video game of the 2021 World Rally Championship, and features all 12 rounds of the season, including some of its more iconic races like the Croatia Rally and Rally Estonia.

Journey to the Savage Planet is an adventure game that sees players exploring a colorful planet that’s inhabited by a variety of alien life. Along the way, players will be able to catalog what they find, as well as upgrade their player with items like jetpacks that will help them explore areas previously inaccessible. It’s somewhat like Outer Wilds in that it is a mysterious game set in a different universe that lets users freely explore at their own pace, but this title is much more comedic and silly.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is the final title of the bunch. This action RPG is based on the iconic tabletop roleplaying game Werewolf: The Apocalypse, and stars a werewolf who has been banished from his tribe and the fight he goes on against a corrupt corporation that is polluting the environment. The title was heavily derided at launch and currently holds a average score of 53 on OpenCritic.

This lineup comes just two months before the launch of the new revamped PlayStation Plus, which was formally revealed last week. Current PlayStation Now subscribers will automatically be enrolled in the highest tier of the service, which has resulted in some users stacking up PlayStation Now subscriptions in order to be grandfathered into a higher, more expensive tier for no extra charge when it comes out.
