Every year, hundreds of new video games release to the public, and it can be hard to decide what to spend your cash on. Because of the ever-growing libraries of gaming platforms around the world, we’ve compiled a list of the best games to play right now on the PlayStation 4.
‘Infamous: Second Son’
Building off the events set within the original games, “Infamous: Second Son” puts players into the role of Delsin Rowe. In a world that fears difference, the Department of Unified Protection works hard to imprison superhumans and clean the streets of their filth. But when a military convoy crashes near his home town, Delsin Rowe discovers that he too holds superhuman powers. The DUP terrorizes the people of the town, and Delsin must either save or avenge them. Choices have consequences, and the actions that players choose will determine the outcome of the story.
“Towerfall” is a fantastic indie game that supports up to 4 players in a local party game centering on intense ‘versus matches.’ Master the skill of archery as you competitively fight against your friends in a fast-paced environment. While it might not be feature-rich, the pick-up and play aspect of “Towefall Ascension” makes it a must-have for any PlayStation 4 owners looking to get the most out of the PS4’s library.
‘Wolfenstein: The New Order/The Old Blood’
Set in a world alternate to the original Wolfenstein games, “Wolfenstein: The New Order” is a fantastic reboot of the much-loved series. Followed by the release of the game’s first DLC “Wolfenstein: The Old Blood,” the two games work hand-in-hand to tell one story about a man, a war that was lost long ago, and the need to save the world. Step into the boots of William ‘B.J.’ Blazkowicz and make the Nazi commander Deathshead pay for all the wrong he’s done.
