PlayStation users are enjoying a great month of April, after Oddworld Soulstorm or Days Gone have joined PS Plus for this month, or the new additions of Borderlands 3 and Marvel’s Avengers for the PS Now service.
You may already know him, and it is that PlayStation Now is the closest thing to Game Pass that PS4 and PS5 users have available, although in the last hours some problems have been detected. Both Borderlands 3 and Marvel’s Avengers work on both Sony consoles … but no improvements in the new generation.
The Gearbox shooter and Crystal Dynamics Avengers game are two juicy additions for PS Now, but only the PS4 versions are available. That means that, in case you play on PS5, you will not be able to access the next gen versions, with improvements and added functions.
This not only happens with these two titles, but all the PS Now catalog is focused on PS4 games. Sony has not yet updated the service properly, and that means that it is still not possible to fully enjoy the benefits of PS5 with the games of this service.
In the case of Borderlands 3 and Marvel’s Avengers, it is possible to play without problems the PS4 versions on your PS5 (via backward compatibility), but if you want to update both games to the new generation versions, it is necessary to pay, as if we did not have them bought (or in this case, rented).

5 essential accessories for your PS4
Borderlands 3 has a next gen patch for PS5, and recently Marvel’s Avengers has followed the same path, with the incentive of Spider-Man. Of course, the Marvel character will not arrive for a few months to the cast of the game, surely in summer.
This is something that happened previously, but it is striking that Sony have not allowed to download PS5 versions from PS Now, since they are available in the PS Store and through a free update if we have purchased the PS4 games, either on disk or digital. For instance, on Game Pass We will have access to the next-gen version of a game if we download it in Game Pass, using Series X or Series S.
