PlayStation Store Spring Sale -- 7 Great Games You Should Pick Up
The PlayStation Store Spring Sale has some of the best PS4 games available at a steep discount. Here are 7 games you should grab before the sale ends.
It’s Wednesday, April 1. Do you know what that means? A new sales event on the PlayStation Store, duh. Dubbed the “Spring Sale,” you can save up to 50% on some incredible games spanning all genres. Here are 7 great games you should pick up during the PlayStation Store Spring Sale.
DOOM (2016) — $7.99
2016’s DOOM is one of the best first-person shooters this generation. Heck, I would argue it’s one of the all-time greats in the popular genre. While it may not have the most complex narrative, the campaign is an absolute blast that touts some fantastic shooting mechanics, hellish visuals, and a ripping (and tearing) soundtrack. For $7.99, this is a steal and will help you get caught up with Doom Slayer’s story if you plan on playing its recently-released sequel, DOOM Eternal.
Kingdom Hearts All-In-One Package — $29.99
Normally, I would steer clear from anything Kingdom Hearts related, but this is an incredible deal for anyone looking to get into the beloved series. Kingdom Hearts All-In-One Package includes Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and Kingdom Hearts 3. In short, this package gives you everything you need to experience Sora, Goofy, and Donald’s ridiculous adventure.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience — $5.99
Speaking of ridiculous adventures, Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience is also on sale. Say what you will about the actual story, but the gameplay in Metal Gear Solid V is incredibly crafted and tons of fun. I mean, you can command a horse to poop. Not many games can top that feature. Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience does pack both Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain, so you can play through the story in its entirety.
Tekken 7 — $9.99
There are a slew of great fighting games available at a discount with the PlayStation Store Spring Sale. Games like Mortal Kombat 11 and Dragon Ball FighterZ are exceptional in their own right. However, Tekken 7 is the fighting game I would recommend from this list. It is arguably the biggest fighting game right now. Even years after its release, it is still a headliner at major fighting game tournaments like Evo and Combo Breaker. It was also my personal game of the year back in 2017.
The Last of Us Remastered — $14.99
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is one of the best PlayStation titles of all time, and this remastered version only improves what was already a fantastic game. Telling the dramatic tale of Ellie and Joel’s emotional journey across the United States during a pandemic that has completely changed civilization as we know it…sounds a little like now, to be honest. If you really have not played it, you absolutely should pick this up, especially with The Last of Us Part II releasing next month.
Until Dawn — $9.99
Supermassive Games’ narrative-driven horror romp Until Dawn is such a joy to play, especially with other people. While it only features a single-player mode, the choice-based gameplay makes it a great interactive experience for friends and family. If you love B-horror movies, Until Dawn is right up your alley.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life — $14.99
I’m going to be honest, I haven’t played Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. However, I did just beat Yakuza 0 last night and started Yakuza Kiwami this morning. I can confirm that the Yakuza games are amazing and should be played. Putting a cap on Kazuma Kiryu’s long-running journey as the Dragon of Dojima, this is a game any Yakuza fan will probably want to play. I know I do.
