Another month means another helping of additions to Sony’s PlayStation Now subscription service, with March set to bring co-op zombie shooter World War Z, skybound action in Ace Combat 7, superhero romp Infamous: Second Son, plus time-manipulating FPS Superhot.
World War Z, which released back in 2019, is essentially a modern day spin on Valve’s beloved Left 4 Dead series. Developed by Saber Interactive, it tasks teams of up to four players with working together to take on the zombie hordes, each new mission relocating the action to another part of the globe – New York, Tokyo, Moscow, Jerusalem, and Marseille – with a new roster of survivors. It was a solid enough effort on release, but it’s grown considerably since then – it now features five competitive multiplayer modes, for instance – expanding and improving thanks to Saber’s extensive post-launch support.
Infamous: Second Son, meanwhile, is the third game in Sucker Punch’s open-world superhero series, initially launching on PS4 in 2014. It follows the super-powered adventures of street artist Delsin Rowe across Seattle, and, like earlier games, features a morality system, giving players the choice of whether to use their abilities for good or evil. Oli Welsh called it “compact and likeable” in his 7/10 review, while noting, “There’s not been much of an attempt to shake up the mission scenarios or structure of the game, leaving you with a very rote open-world adventure”.
