The Best FPS Games For PlayStation 4 – June 2018
The PlayStation 4 is the best-seller of the current-generation gaming consoles, and because of that, it’s host to hundreds of good games. Of those hundreds, a great number of them are First Person Shooters, and today we’ll be covering the best of them. This is the best FPS games for PlayStation 4, and we’ll explain each of our choices in detail below.
The DOOM reboot in 2016 made huge waves upon its release, thanks to its amazing graphics and visceral, fast-paced gameplay. While this article is being written two years later, it’s still one of the best FPS experiences on the platform, and because of that we highly recommend it.
With fast-paced gameplay reminiscent of classic arena shooters, a heavy metal soundtrack, excellent sound design and amazing graphical fidelity, DOOM has quite a lot to offer.
Overwatch is a hero shooter blending FPS with MOBA elements and is still receiving major updates in the form of new heroes, maps and events two years after its release. There’s a ton of different heroes to play and ways to play them, so if you’re looking for a delightfully varied FPS experience, Overwatch is it.
The playable heroes are divided into Offense, Defense, Tank and Support categories. While Offense and Defense will be instantly familiar to FPS players, Tanks and Supports come with much lower aim requirements and focus on game sense and positioning, making them more friendly to players new to the genre.
Whether you’re just here to enjoy the diverse cast of characters or want to dive deep into strategic plays, Overwatch has something for you.
Titanfall 2 is the sequel to 2014’s Titanfall, boasting an amazing single-player campaign, revamped multiplayer gameplay, and multi-platform availability. Titanfall 2 has one of the few truly stellar single-player FPS campaigns out there, with great writing, plenty of personality and gameplay that actually helps prepare you for the multiplayer game.
What sets Titanfall 2 apart from its contemporaries is its advanced movement mechanics (bunnyhopping, wall-riding, etc) and eponymous Titanfall mechanic, wherein you summon a giant mech (a Titan) that you can pilot in combat. To beat the campaign, you’ll have to master all of these abilities, and that will help you be more prepared for the speedy multiplayer titles.
Battlefield 1, despite its title, is not the first Battlefield game. Rather confusingly, it’s actually released after Battlefield 4, and it’s named “1” because it takes place during World War 1, a setting that had been absent from major FPSes for quite some time before its release.
With its World War 1 setting, Battlefield 1 isn’t obsessed with the latest modern weaponry or crazy speed and mechanics. Instead, it’s all about positioning, massive area control, vehicles and raw aim. Battlefield 1 offers massive maps and a lot of gameplay depth, which earns it its place on this list.
Far Cry 5 is the 5th main entry in the Far Cry franchise, which is focused on building massive sandboxes for single-player FPS experiences. The story aspects, characters and setting are…fine, but ultimately nothing to write home about.
The real joy in Far Cry 5 is in using all of the toys it offers and using these toys to tackle various enemy camps in different ways. With a truly ridiculous number of weapons, vehicles, and animals for you to use to your advantage, Far Cry 5 will give you all you need to wreak havoc.
The Metro series is an action/stealth/survival horror series, taking place in a post-apocalyptic 2033 metro. Metro Redux is a remake of the original Metro 2033 and provides a gorgeous remake of Metro 2033 alongside its sequel, Metro: Last Light. Each game provides an extended, atmospheric single-player experience, and Metro Redux is two-for-one at a low price of $7.49!
If you enjoy stealth games, a thick atmosphere, great world-building and well-executed scares, Metro Redux is the game for you. We’d rate it higher on this list, but the stealth/horror genre is a bit niche for most people’s tastes, so we’ll leave it here.
Time only moves when you move.
That’s the concept of SUPERHOT, and it turns what would otherwise be a normal FPS into a nail-biting blend of puzzle and action. Every bullet and melee weapon is a one hit kill, you’re vastly outnumbered, and even with time frozen, you’ll need to think fast if you want to survive.
There’s also…a story. It’s alright, but it’s definitely not for everyone. Most players are going to focus on the gameplay aspect, and fortunately, the gameplay is incredibly solid. The main campaign is on the shorter side, but other game modes offer a ton of replayability.
