Best Free PlayStation Games on the PS Store - PS4 & PS5
PlayStation is known for its fantastic original story-telling games, but what about some free PlayStation games in the store that won’t break the bank?
Sony’s PlayStation has been a powerhouse in the gaming industry for decades. I personally enjoy a myriad of their triple-A titles on my home console and simply cannot put them down until it’s completed.
Free PlayStation games have also become a cornerstone for the gaming community over the past couple of years. Therefore it is no surprise that ground-breaking games such as Fortnite and Apex Legends have accumulated an enormous player base.
So without further ado, here are is our list of the best free PlayStation games available for download on the Playstation Store.
Call of Duty: Warzone
It goes without saying, as to why the Call of Duty franchise continues to release new titles every year. Despite the overhaul of games, which some would call ‘subpar’. 2019’s Modern Warfare was an absolute treat and breath of fresh air.
I could go on for hours regarding how much I love the visual and audio design of the guns and maps. However, what I appreciate the most, is that the same level of care was translated into Call of Duty: Warzone.
World of Tanks
When I studied history in secondary school, I visited Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset, England. I was in absolute awe of all the heavy artillery and machinery showcased in all their glory. Thus, World of Tanks is perfect for World War aficionados such as me.

Apex Legends is my favourite Battle Royale out right now. It’s addictive and the game design constantly brings a smile to my face every boot-up. Not only this, but every match feels fresh and unique.
It runs extremely smooth on PS5, with frame rates seldom dipping below 59 FPS. However, do not be disheartened PS4 players; the game is still an absolute blast, and you can still become skilful enough to beat next-gen players!
Nevertheless, whether I win or lose, the enriching lore and beautiful visuals keep me coming back to play this game, so that I may be a definitive Apex Champion. That said, I could not recommend this game enough.

Fortnite needs very little introduction. If you have a younger family member asking if you have Fortnite on your phone, you’re not alone.
But I digress. I often harken back to when Fortnite first released in 2017, to which my heart hasn’t been the same since.
That feeling of adrenaline flushing my brain and blood-tingling under my skin, ever-present whenever I was in the top 5 of the lobby. That feeling will never be forgotten.
If you are new to Fortnite or haven’t played it in a while, I implore you to share that same feeling I had, as you won’t regret it.
