PlayStation Now members now know which games will be available in the month of May. 

On the PlayStation Blog, PlayStation Now's May lineup was revealed. The three games will be available starting on May 4th. The first game is Nioh. In Nioh, players will take up their swords and cut a violent path through Japan as the masterless samurai William. Gamers will engage in brutal hand-to-hand combat as they wield swords, axes, spears, and hammers against both human and demon foes. Players must endure vicious encounters and learn from their mistakes as death does lead to resurrection, and a greater resolve to overcome their obstacles. 

The second game that is coming to PlayStation Now this month is Jump Force. Jump Force brings together characters from some of manga's most popular series, including Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, and others as they jump onto the battlefield. Gamers can create their own avatar and jump into an original Story Mode, or head onto the Online Lobby to challenge other players. Jump Force will be available until August 2nd.

The third and final game coming to PlayStation Now this month is Streets of Rage 4. Streets of Rage 4 reimagines Sega's iconic beat'em series up for a new generation. Gamers can play as fan favorites Axel and Blaze, as well as newcomers Cherry Hunter, Floyd Iraia, and unlockable guest stars as they clean up the streets of Wood Oak City with their fists. Gamers can pull off combos alone, with up to three friends locally, or with another player online. Streets of Rage 4 will be available on PlayStation Now until November 1st. 

Finally, it was announced that PlayStation Now will begin rolling out support for streaming 1080p capable games on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. The rollout will occur over the next several weeks across the US, Canada, Europe, and Japan wherever PlayStation Now is available.
