Today's generation of video games are nothing short of amazing. From phenomenal graphics to amazing story telling. Games like #RedDeadRedemption and #TheLastofUs offer great play through experiences and hours of fun but cost an upwards of $60! Titles today are incredible compared to where we began just 40 years ago, with games like #Pong and #SpaceInvaders to show our unbelievable steps. These great advances come with a price however, some selling bundles up to over $100! For just the bare game nowadays they start at $60, (about 20 gallons of milk, 320 baby diapers, or 15 lbs. of 80% ground beef!) not a cheap investment for an average Joe working hourly, for 40 hours a week.
Where do you begin and what are some of your options for your next gaming adventure? In the #Playstation4 store you can find a "free" tab where there are numerous games from developers like #KizStudios and #DaybreakGameCompany that offer unique and intriguing exploits. The following games are all found for free right on your console in the store and available for download right now!
1. 'DC Universe Online'
#DCUniverseOnline is one of my personal favorites on #PS4, combining two of my favorite things, superheroes and a great role-playing experience. From developers #DaybreakGameCompany, I started years ago on PC and when I got a console again it was a must have. With soon to be 15 different powers to choose from, each with their own roles (damage, tank, healer.) you have your choice of picking which power best fits your play style and personal liking.
Choose from powers like Fire, Ice, Gadgets, or even Atomic powers. Pick your weapon style, each with different skills, attacks, and passive statistics; your style of movement, speed, acrobatics and even flying, that's right, you can soar above the cities and bring the battle from above! Create the best superhero you can and advance to level 30, spending skill points and choosing your powers. Once you reach the maximum level you can increase your combat rating by equipping better gear and completing more challenging dungeons and raids.
#DCUniverseOnline is the place for you to go if you love superheroes, role-playing games, and hack-n-slash style battles. There are subscription options to unlock more inventory slots, higher level dungeons, and some powers, all of which can be bought individually over time. #DCUniverseOnline is extremely playable and balanced without a subscription and can be played all the way to 30!
2. 'Trans-Galactic Tournament'
#TransGalacticTournament is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) developed by #KizStudios that brings a simple interface and easy to learn game mechanics. #Paragon and #Smite are great F2P (Free-to-play) MOBA's on #PS4 but #TransGalacticTournament takes the spot because of the quick matches and straightforward game play. Choose from 26 different characters, each with their unique abilities, play styles and strengths/weaknesses. Engage in 3 different game types, Annihilation (Team Death Match), Plunderball (Capture the Flag), and Siege (Destroy the other team's fortress).
#TransGalacticTournament also offers 3 game modes, League, which is their ranked mode, jump right into a Quickmatch, or Practice with different heroes and test their abilities without having to unlock them with in-game currency. Earn coins and experience after every match, increasing your overall level, unlocking new runes and badges to equip to your character increasing stats and abilities. Equip weapons, costumes, and funny emotes, specific to each champion. New seasons each week allow quick rewards and the ability to jump in and casually play with benefits. If you are looking for exciting PvP, fun skills, and quick game play for anyone than #TransGalacticTournament is the game for you!
#Warframe, often joked as the poor man's #Destiny, is actually quite a unique and fun game that you can play for zero dollars. Developed from #DigitalExtremes, choose from different warframes (characters) each with their own special powers.
Equip weapons ranging from bows, machine guns, hand guns and even swords and other melee weapons! Each you can rank up to 30, increasing stats and adding improvement cards to power up your attacks and powers! Explore through the solar system, unlocking new planets and quests along the way. Play solo or team up through match-making to beat boss matches and difficult missions. Use credits to unlock new weapons, or go to the Bazaar to barter with other players for items. Find recipes to craft new warframes, weapons, and even followers to help fight! Log in daily for rewards, working towards bigger bonuses after logging in so many consecutive days.
As you raise ranks, levels increasingly get tougher and some seem impossible by yourself, so if you're up for the challenge I urge you to download #Warframe and experience the fast paced, first person shooter yourself all for free!
4. 'Dungeons & Dragons: Neverwinter'
#Neverwinter is a great classic role-playing game from #CrypticStudios that throws you into the epic world of #DungeonsandDragons. Select from 8 prototypical classes like the Paladin, Cleric, and Ranger to lay siege on your enemies. You'll advance through 70 levels, increasing your skills and powers and collecting all the armor and weapons you can. Collect different companions, each with their own powers, from healing you to helping you damage your foes! #Neverwinter offers awesome dungeons, skirmishes and of course challenging raids!
You'll never be bored in this game, as you quest through different lands, learn different crafting skills, and engage in player verse player battles. Of course there is a marketplace that you can use your hard earned cash to buy cosmetics, and boosts but none of which effects your ability to play through the game. If you want a time honored, classic role-playing game than #Neverwinter is what you're looking for, and for an amazing price of $0.00!
You can find more #F2P games in the #PS4 playstore and find what ever suits your fancy! Be sure to check out these amazing titles and look for more to be released in the future. You will find limitless amounts of play time in these games, I still keep up with each one and love the fact I didn't put a cent into any of them!
