Headlining next month’s additions to the streaming service is Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition, which will be available to subscribers until May 2.
Death Squared, Little Big Workshop and Through the Darkest of Times will also be playable from February 1 and will be longer-term additions to PlayStation Now.

Ahead of Monday’s official announcement, at least two PlayStation owners claimed to have spotted on-console adverts listing GTA Vice City – Definitive Edition as an upcoming PlayStation Now game.
December’s PlayStation Now games included GTA III – The Definitive Edition, which is scheduled to leave the service today.
Details on an Xbox Game Pass competitor service reportedly being planned by PlayStation emerged last month.
According to documents seen by Bloomberg, the new subscription service is codenamed ‘Spartacus’ and will combine the current PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now services, phasing out the branding of the latter. It’s expected to launch for PS4 and PS5 this spring and to be structured across three payment tiers.
The first tier will reportedly include existing PlayStation Plus benefits, such as online play and free monthly titles. The second will offer a large catalogue of games like Xbox Game Pass (although not first-party titles at launch). The third tier will add extended demos, game streaming and a library of classic PlayStation games.
February’s PlayStation Plus games are UFC 4, Planet Coaster: Console Edition, and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure.
