(Note: Games that are available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers will be excluded from this article unless otherwise noted).
Among Us (PS4 & PS5) ($3.74) – 25% off
The international sci-fi multiplayer sensation that swept the world during Coronavirus lockdowns finally came to PlayStation 4 and 5 in December 2021 and is now available on both consoles combined for the low price of $3.74. Among Us provides hours of cross-platform fun with friends from around the globe, as you work together in specific roles on a spaceship completing tasks and cooperating through a live group chat to root out the murderous alien impostors hiding amongst the crewmates.
Astro Bot Rescue Mission (PSVR) ($9.99) – 50% off
Astro Bot Rescue Mission is a PlayStation VR exclusive platformer that put Astro Bot on the map as the de facto PlayStation mascot for the PS4 and PS5 generations. This game is the highest-rated PSVR entry with a 90 Metacritic score and is a must-play for VR owners or those who enjoyed Rescue Mission’s PS5 pre-installed console demo sequel, Astro’s Playroom.
Batman: Arkham Knight Premium Edition (PS4) ($7.99) – 80% off
While Batman: Arkham Knight is available on PlayStation Plus (Extra), the premium edition includes 16+ DLC packs, which contain villain missions not available in the base game, combat and stealth challenges with a variety of playable heroes and villains, Batmobile racing courses, new character skins, and a Barbara Gordon, Batgirl centric “A Matter of Family” campaign. All of this combined within the largest DC open world game released to date provides excellent value to PlayStation gamers.
Bloodborne: The Old Hunters DLC (PS4) ($9.99) – 50% off
While Bloodborne is available on PlayStation Plus (Extra), its highly regarded Old Hunters expansion is not. This downloadable content is too important to pass up if you have only experienced the base version of the game. The Old Hunters DLC introduces five new boss fights including the battle against fan-favorite character, Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower, as well as an epic brawl against the shrieking Orphan of Kos, arguably the game’s most challenging encounter. Furthermore, with a variety of new weapons, enemies, and exciting locations, any Bloodborne owner who hasn’t played the Old Hunters DLC is strongly urged to venture into the Hunter’s Nightmare.
Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition (PS4 & PS5) ($39.99) – 60% off
While Borderlands 3 was not as well-received as Borderlands 2, fans of first-person shooters, RPGs, and sci-fi space westerns will see huge value in the game’s Ultimate Edition. While the $39.99 price tag might leave some taken aback, this bundle includes both Season Passes with their many respective expansion packs, in addition to an already large base game for both current PlayStation consoles. With four playable classes, this Borderlands 3 bundle provides hundreds, if not close to a thousand hours of solo or co-op vault-hunting fun before the release of Eli Roth’s upcoming Borderlands film.
DOOM Eternal Deluxe Edition (PS4 & PS5) ($23.09) – 67% off
DOOM Eternal, the 2020 sequel to the 2016 reboot of the games synonymous with first-person shooters, continued and improved upon the series’ tried and true formula of fast-paced, blood-soaked, demon-slaying action. This game of the year contender’s “Deluxe Edition” includes the Ancient Gods Part 1 and 2 expansions, as well as a “Demonic Slayer Skin” and “Classic Weapon Sound Pack” for both PS4 and PS5.
Dragon Age: Inquisition – Game of the Year Edition (PS4) ($7.99) – 80% off
The third entry in the acclaimed Dragon Age RPG series is available in the Summer Sale combined with all of its expansion packs. This bundle includes Dragon Age: Inquisition, as well the Jaws of Hakkon, The Descent, and Trespasser DLCs. With a nearly 60-hour campaign, and a huge amount of additional content, this 2014 RPG is undeniably worth adding to your PS4 digital library at this massive discount.
Grim Fandango Remastered (PS4) ($4.49) – 70% off
This is a remastered version of the 1998 PC classic, which is currently the 17th highest rated PC game of all time on Metacritic with a 94 Metascore, as of this writing. The afterlife-based adventure game was originally published by LucasArts and came to PS4 in its remastered form in 2015. This deal for a port of a renowned game is simply too good to pass up at $4.49.
Skyrim Anniversary Edition (PS4& PS5) + Fallout 4 G.O.T.Y Bundle (PS4) ($31.99) – 60% off
While Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition was included in the first Prima Games’ PlayStation “Summer Sale” buying guide, the PlayStation Store further sweetened the pot by introducing this bundle, which includes Bethesda’s aforementioned PS4 gen post-apocalyptic sci-fi Fallout title, as well as both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the medieval-styled, high fantasy RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Anniversary Edition). This collection comes with both base games, as well as all DLC packs for the game of the year winning RPGs, providing hundreds of hours of entertainment over the course of the bundle’s three games.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition (PS4) ($9.99) – 80% off
Last, but not least is one of, if not the greatest game of the entire PS4 generation, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The action RPG’s “Complete Edition” comes with the 2015 game and all DLC packs are automatically installed, including the eerie “Hearts of Stone” storyline and the massive vampire-oriented “Blood and Wine” expansion that is larger than many other RPGs on the market. Whether you’re a fan of the Netflix show, the books the game is based on by Andrzej Sapkowski, RPGs in general, or simply breathing, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is surely a game that is a must-play at $9.99 and would still be at 10 times that price. Furthermore, with a free PS5 upgrade arriving in the fourth quarter of 2022 for PS4 game owners, now is a great time to buy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition.
