Much like Genshin, you can unlock new characters, albeit slowly, just by playing the game, so get ready to start making the perfect party with this blend of JRPG action and open-world gameplay.

Not only is there an excellent battle royale waiting for players to sink countless hours into with a variety of different gameplay options, but with the recently released LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival options, there is so much content packed into this free to play release that it feels almost illegal.

1: Astro’s Playroom

The Nintendo Entertainment system came packed in with its killer game from the moment it was released: Super Mario Bros. It looks like PlayStation may have taken a hint from their rival and included an excellent pack in-game that showcases the newest technology in their latest controller with Astro’s Playroom. Not only is it one of the best free-to-play games on any console, it’s a love letter to Sony and their properties, and should be played by everyone.
