Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced plans to launch cloud streaming for PlayStation 5 this month.
The feature, which will be available to PlayStation Plus Premium members, will receive a staggered rollout.
Sony is targeting an October 17 launch for Japan, October 23 for Europe and October 30 for North America.
“Select PS5 games will be available for streaming, and we’re planning to have hundreds of PS5 titles to support this new benefit,” said Hideaki Nishino, SIE’s senior VP of platform experience.
Supported titles will include Game Catalogue offerings like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon Forbidden West, Ghost of Tsushima, Mortal Kombat 11 and Saints Row IV.
Some PS5 digital titles that players own will be available for streaming too including Resident Evil 4, Dead Island 2, Genshin Impact, Fall Guys and Fortnite.
Game Trials for PS5 titles like Hogwarts Legacy, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Calisto Protocol will also be available.
Sony said DLC and in-game purchases will be available for PS5 game streaming too.
Streaming resolution options will include 4K, 1440p, 1080p, and 720p, with 60 FPS and SDR or HDR output.
PS5 game streaming will support all PS5 audio capabilities including 5.1 and 7.1 as well as Tempest 3D Audiotech.
Players will be able to capture screenshots and record up to three minutes of video, which will be downloaded to the Media Gallery on PS5 and will also be available on the PS App.
Sony has also confirmed October’s PlayStation Plus Game Catalogue and Classics titles.
The company announced on Tuesday that it plans to launch a smaller PS5 model in November in the US, before rolling it out to other regions in the following months.
