Is Tribes of Midgard on PlayStation Now? The co-op viking survival action game has piqued the interest of many since its appearance at Gearbox's E3 2021 press conference (however disappointing that conference may otherwise have been), and its open beta period has allowed some to jump in and try out the game before it reaches its official launch day. Can PlayStation Now subscribers get free access to the game?

Is Tribes of Midgard on PlayStation Now?

PlayStation Now allows subscribers to stream games directly to their consoles or PC

Unfortunately for players who are afraid to commit to the full $20 purchase, Tribes of Midgard is not one of the hundreds of games available for free download on PlayStation Now. That may be because the game hasn't actually been released yet — it doesn't come out until July 27 — but there's no guarantee it will join the service when it does go live.

For now, players' only options are to pre-purchase the game and twiddle their thumbs until release day, or to wait for the game's release before making their purchase. The latter option has the added benefit of allowing them to gauge the enthusiasm of the general public before they throw down their cash.

If it doesn't come to PlayStation Now, Tribes of Midgard will also require players to subscribe to PlayStation Plus in order to play the game, as its gameplay revolves around mandatory online multiplayer.
