In preparation for the upcoming blockbuster game, Spider-Man, Sony Entertainment is preparing to launch their new Countdown to Launch program tonight. During this program, the PlayStation Store will be offering great deals and giveaways for some of the year’s biggest games.
Running now through November 6th, PlayStation owners will be able to check out the Countdown to Launch event by logging into the event’s page over at PlayStation.com/Countdown. From here, players will have access to videos including “behind-the-scenes interviews with developers, gameplay, deep dive on central characters, and more for games like Marvel’s Spider-Man, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, FIFA 19, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
