With the soaring prices of PS4 games in 2018, the average gamer has started to move to free PS4 games instead. These titles are free to download and play without any extra cash involved. However, you will need PlayStation Plus but other than that, they are free from start to finish.

With free PS4 games, not everything is completely free and you will probably be required to grind for specific items but you could also buy these things with in-game purchases.

Here are best free PS4 games you can play right now.

Neverwinter

PS4 owners don’t have much to choose from when it comes to MMOs but luckily Neverwinter will satisfy that grinding craving you get when you just want to dedicate your life to something. The game is set in various Dungeons and Dragons locations as it takes place in the same universe. Instead of it being a typical open world you will explore different giant hubs with various quest and enemies to kill.

Paladins

The game borrows a lot of inspiration from Overwatch and features almost identical heroes and skills, but unlike Overwatch, it is one of the free PS4 games. The game features some great characters each with their own unique look and playstyle and a deep inventory system that lets you equip different cards to your characters to enhance their skills. Sure, the combat and overall gameplay might not be as polished as Overwatch but, we can’t complain about free PS4 games.

Fortnite Battle Royale

If you don’t know, Fortnite actually has two modes to it. The PvE mode which right now needs to be purchased with a Founder’s Pack and a battle royale mode which is a free-to-play game. This battle royale is a little different from PUBG as you will be able to build structures on the fly as long as you have gathered materials. With this feature, the entire game mode is much faster and unpredictable as you go against 99 other players in a large environment and need to survive to be the last one alive. You can scavenge for treasure chests that contain loot such as guns, traps and other building materials or just sit in a bush and wait for an unexpected player to walk by you. The game results in an intense battle royale that you would want to experience at least once. Did we mention it is also free?

Skyforge

Skyforge is probably the prettiest game on this list and another great MMO. Its combat is fast, its world is gorgeous and its character classes can be changed at any time which is great if you don’t want to get tied down to one playstyle. The game lets you chain together different moves across each class as you master new ones and buff these skills with stronger equipment. There are 14 classes to choose from and while you are limited to your choice at the start of the game, you can grind to unlock more or simply buy them with real money. We recommend just playing the game and don’t give into the flashy additional purchase.

Let It Die

Let it Die is one of the most unique free OS4 games on this list. It is a hack and slash RPG that sees you climb your way to the top of a tower as you fight through deadly enemies, gather new gear and face off against other player’s dead ghost data. You see, when you die on Let it Die, your character data spawns into the world as a ghost and other players need to fight you to get through the area. It is a fun way to keep your legacy going as you rage throughout your house because you died. While the game does have some heavy microtransactions, these can all be avoided but it will cost you time, showing the heavier side of free PS4 games.

Smite

PS4 does not have a lot of MOBAs to choose from now that Paragon has been canned. Smite, on the other hand, is still going strong and it is a great free-to-play MOBA.

Warframe

Warframe has been going strong for almost 5 years now and the PS4 version makes for a fantastic free-to-play Destiny-like clone. The game sees players take control of these frames as they set off to rid the solar system of invaders. Each frame has a unique look and feels and you can customize them and really make them your own. Warframe also just received a massive expansion that is free for all players that added a large open world hub for you to explore and take on missions. There is a lot of dedication needed to be a master of Warframe and the game welcomes all players.
