Game features compatible with PlayStation Now

Find out how to save your games on PlayStation Now, the multiplayer options available on the service and which PlayStation Network features are compatible with PS Now.

Game saves on PlayStation Now

If you are streaming a PS Now game, the save data will be stored in the cloud. If you are playing a downloaded PS Now game, your game saves are stored on your PS4 hard drive.

PS Plus online storage acts as a middle ground between the two save types. To continue using your PS Now save, manually upload it to PS Plus using the guide below.


Multiplayer on PlayStation Now

If you are playing a PS Now game that includes online multiplayer modes, you'll be able to access these just as you would if you owned the game on disc or download. PS Plus is not required for PS Now online multiplayer.

Local multiplayer is supported on compatible PS Now games but is limited to two players on PC. 

Joining a Party on PlayStation Now

Downloaded PS Now games on PS4 support Party chat, the Share button and Share Play features. 

Streamed games on PS Now support Party chat.


Game add-ons and DLC on PlayStation Now

Game add-ons and DLC can't be used when streaming a PS Now game. However, we always try to make sure that the best possible versions of games are available on PlayStation Now as soon as possible.

You can purchase and use DLC and add-on content with games downloaded from PlayStation Now. If your PlayStation Now subscription expires you will lose access to the game and any associated DLC and add-on content. If you re-subscribe to PlayStation Now, or purchase the game from PlayStation Store, you will be able to use your purchased DLC and add-on content again.

Trophies on PlayStation Now

Trophies earned while playing a game on PlayStation Now are saved to the cloud in real time. These will appear in your Trophies list when you sync them with PlayStation Network.
