Persona 5 is on PC at last – though with some significant caveats. As of today, the game is available as part of PlayStation Now streaming, which is available on both PlayStation 4 consoles and PC. Lag issues with streaming will be pretty minimal in a slow-paced RPG like this, but the pacing marks another issue: you’ve only got three months to finish it.
You can get a PlayStation Now subscription for $9.99 / £8.99 / €9.99 monthly, $24.99 / £22.99 / €24.99 quarterly, or $59.99 / £49.99 / €59.99 annually. The full streaming library is available on PC, including other big PlayStation-exclusive hits like God of War, Infamous Second Son, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End – although those three titles are only available until January 2, 2020.
Persona 5 is only available until February 4, 2020 – which could be a bit of a problem, considering the game’s epic length. A truncated playthrough is listed as over 96 hours on HowLongToBeat, so that means you’ll have to play over an hour a day for the next three months if you want to actually see the conclusion.
Atlus has dropped plenty of hints about proper, native Persona PC ports in the past through fan surveys, including one that suggested Persona 6 for PC is potentially in the cards. For the moment, PS Now streaming is your only option – at least, your only legal one.
There are plenty of RPG games native to PC to fill your time, but if you’re thinking about taking this path to Persona, you’d better start it quick – or just have a mountain of free time available between now and February.
