Running out of Christmas gift ideas for loved ones? Don’t worry! If that person you’re shopping for owns a PlayStation 4, then you’re in luck! There are plenty of great deals on PS4 games going on from now until Christmas day, which means you can get best-selling games without punishing your wallet.
Here are the five best PS4 game deals you can grab now, including price cuts on recently launched AAA games that gamer in your life is sure to love.
1. Wolfenstein: The New Order
If you’ve played one war-based first-person shooter, you’ve played them all, right? Wrong. The Wolfenstein series has never been afraid to present at least somewhat controversial alternate history scenarios to the player. In The New Order, the Nazis didn’t just win World War II but basically took over the world, too. You play as returning hero BJ Blazcowicz, and a strong cast of characters makes it easy to stay invested in the story. Gunplay ranges from stealth to dual-wielding shootouts, and a unique skill progression system stays interesting throughout the whole game. If you’re tired of cookie-cutter shooters, The New Order is worth a visit.
Price: $37.34 (38 percent off MSRP)
2. Assassin’s Creed Unity
Yeah, Assassin’s Creed Unity has its problems. Glitches run rampant, and the combat is a bit simple. But the truth is, Unity provides a refreshingly simple story compared to previous iterations, almost entirely doing away with the modern-day narrative. Furthermore, the addition of co-op is exciting, and it’s rewarding to customize your own assassin across both single- and multiplayer modes. Ubisoft is issuing patches that will take care of the bugs, but in the meantime, you can grab Unity at half off, which is a fantastic deal for such a new game.
Price: $29.99 (50 percent off MSRP)
3. The Evil Within
Anyone who’s played the Resident Evil series knows that horror games are awesome. It seems contradictory, but scaring the pants off yourself is a pretty entertaining way to spend an evening. Shinji Mikami, known for his work on Resident Evil 4, jumped in with a new team to create The Evil Within, a sort of spiritual successor to the iconic survival horror franchise. Mikami is a master of all things scary, so his latest project is sure to surprise, terrify or even emotionally scar you with its claustrophobic locales and disturbing enemies. Make sure you pack your Depends.
Price: $24.99 (58 percent off MSRP)
4. LittleBigPlanet 3
The LittleBigPlanet series has always been about two things: platforming and imagination. Run through levels blasting anything you can get your hands on with funny stickers. Paint your Sackboy to look as crazy as you want. Let your creativity run wild and create fun and inventive levels of your own to share with your pals. All of this and more returns with PlayStation-exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3, but the third entry in the franchise comes with a few new surprises. Besides Sackboy, there are three new characters this time around: Oddsock, Swoop and Toggle. Creations from previous LittleBigPlanet games are available from the start in LittleBigPlanet 3, meaning you won’t have to wait to start exploring awesome creations when you pick it up.
Price: $44.99 (25 percent off MSRP)
5. The Last of Us Remastered
Naughty Dog proved with The Last of Us its ability to craft a truly heartbreaking tale, and their masterpiece solidified to many naysayers the fact that video games are indeed art. On the surface, The Last of Us is a zombie tale, but the setting doesn’t matter so much as the characters do. Joel, a middle-aged man with nothing left to lose, and Ellie, a young and foul-mouthed teenager, travel across the desolate United States shooting bandits, avoiding clickers and, most importantly, learning and growing together. There are too many special moments in this game to mention here, and doing so would only spoil what makes The Last of Us great. If you haven’t played it yet, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
