During today's QuakeCon 2019 keynote, it was announced that Fallout 4, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and Doom 2016 will be coming to PlayStation Now this August. 

That means you've got a new slew of additional titles to look out for when browsing through the lengthy list of streamable titles on your PlayStation 4. That's going to make it a lot more difficult to try to figure out something to play, that's for sure. But hey, more choices as a gamer is always a good thing, right?

Previously, Shacknews reviewed all three games. If you're curious about whether or not each is worth your time, here's a brief rundown of what we thought.

We awarded Fallout 4 an 8 out of 10, saying:

"Fallout 4 is exactly and precisely more Fallout. Its couple of new gameplay elements are well-executed and enrich the experience, but they don't make this feel especially different than the Wasteland we were exploring almost a decade ago. If you enter looking for a heaping helping of the Fallout action you already enjoy, and an enthralling romp through a newly realized portion of the Wasteland, this certainly fits the bill. Just don't hope for another revolution, because like war, the Wasteland apparently never changes."

We reviewed Wolfenstein: The New Order as well, awarding it an 8 out of 10.

"Despite the lack of multiplayer and fetch-quests that interrupt the blood-spilling action, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a welcome return to form for the series. Its gameplay is good fun, whether you prefer blasting enemies to bits or being sneaky-like. The beautiful presentation makes the most out of the new hardware, and it squeezes some impressive life out of older systems. Blazkowicz's return has been a long time coming, but Machine Games has assured that it was worth it."

Finally, we reviewed Doom (2016) and awarded it a 9:

"That a first-person shooter like Doom exists in 2016 is shocking. Its levels are vast and intricately designed, its gameplay diverse and joyful, its toolset robust. Multiplayer is its weak link, but the adaptability of SnapMap is more than enough to offset that.

While other first-person shooters have stepped forward to challenge convention in recent years, none carry the clout and cachet of Doom. For id Software to overcome the challenges specific to its history and craft a shooter that flies in the face of convention marks Doom as nothing short of a triumph—and, one hopes, a sign that change is in the air for a genre in desperate need of it."

You can look forward to trying out the games on August 6.
