10 Best PS5 and PS4 Games to Buy Now
Sony is staging another massive round of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 console sales right now to coincide with the summer. As of this writing, the PlayStation Store is running its Mid-Year Sale, a sale entirely dedicated to DLC, and another that has discounted PS5 and PS4 games to under $20. In short, hundreds of different games are on sale right now, so it’s a good time to beef up your own digital library.
If you’re looking for something new to pick up for yourself in this ongoing PS Store sale, here are 10 great games on PS5 and PS4 that we think are worth checking out.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
FromSoftware could be all the rage this year largely because of Ring of Eldenbut the studio’s previous project, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twiceit’s just as good. sekiro is much more linear than Ring of Elden, but it features even more engaging combat mechanics. Considering the rarity sekiro is on sale, definitely worth snagging right now.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is by no means new, but still worth checking out if you haven’t already. With modern warfare 2 set to release this fall, now is a good time to catch up on the previous installment of the rebooted version of Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare.
The wonders of Tiny Tina
The wonders of Tiny Tina is certainly not the cheapest game of this sale on the PlayStation Store, but it was also just released only a few months ago. If you’ve been waiting since then for the price to drop a bit, now might be the time to finally pounce.
Price: $47.99, $71.99
Death Loop is one of the best games released throughout 2021 and it also received one of the best discounts in this ongoing sale. Those who own a PS5 can look to get Arkane’s latest shooter for 60% off its normal price, which is quite a bargain.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition
Whether you’ve played the original Mass Effect trilogy before or are looking to experience it for the first time, Legendary Edition definitely worth owning. The long-awaited remaster of BioWare’s RPG series released last year and proved that these games still hold up pretty well in modern times.
Alan Wake Remastered
Alan Wake finally arrived on PlayStation consoles last year for the very first time with this new remaster from Remedy Entertainment. While the game was always a bit niche, Remedy has since doubled down on the franchise with both the announcement of a new TV show and the reveal of Alan Wake 2. If you want to play the game that started it all, now is your chance to get it for less.
salt and sacrifice
salt and sacrifice has only been out for about a month, which is why it’s worth mentioning on this list. The side-scrolling indie action game may have flown under the radar this year, but those who are fans of the Soulslike genre should definitely check it out.
Chances are you already have Injustice 2 if you’re reading this, but you’re not doing it, you should rectify that now. The mega-popular DC fighting game has been discounted to an absurdly sub-$2 price tag. For the price of less than a cup of coffee, you could pick up one of the best fighting games of the last decade.
The return of the Obra Dinn
If you are a fan of puzzle games, The return of the Obra Dinn is a must. This first-person title tasks players with uncovering a mystery associated with a ship that sits in the middle of the sea. With an inventive art style and a killer soundtrack, Obra Dinn is one of the most sleepy games of recent years. Give it a whirl if you feel so inclined.
With its sequel, song of silkset to finally launch in the coming year, now is the time to experience the original hollow knight if you’ve never done it before. The Voidheart Edition of the game, which includes additional content not seen in the base game, has been reduced to 50% of its normal price on the PlayStation Store. Assuming you like action games, hollow knight is something you should greatly appreciate.
