Assassin's Creed series debuts on PlayStation Now, today

Five Assassin's Creed games gain PlayStation 4 compatibility through the PlayStation Now streaming service.

PlayStation has announced that five of the Assassin's Creed games will be available to play on PlayStation Now. The streaming service PlayStation Now will provide a service of renting games using on-demand, which is how the early Assassin's Creed games will be played. 

Assassin's Creed Games Available on Streaming

While only five of the earlier Assassin's Creed games are debuting, PlayStation already has announced that they're adding Assassin's Creed: Syndicate once it's release date of October 23rd, with full compatibility with the PlayStation 4. Below is the list of earlier Assassin's Creed games that are debuting:

  • Assassin's Creed
  • Assassin's Creed 2
  • Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
  • Assassin's Creed: Revelations
  • Assassin's Creed III

A catch in the system

Although some Assassin's Creed games are now available to play on the PS4, the only way to do so is through the streaming service of PlayStation Now. The PlayStation 4 is currently not backwards-compatible, which is slowly bottle-necking the way gamers are allowed to play their oldies but goodies. 

What do you think of the PlayStation Now service? Would it be easier for PlayStation to just develop backwards compatibility with the PS4? Give us your thoughts!
