You don't need to spend a lot of money to play on PlayStation 4 and have unforgettable hours of fun. Of the entire catalog that this console has, there are a large number of free games that you can download and enjoy with friends.
In this article, we share 8 free PS4 games that we think are the best of the moment. Afterward, we show you other games that we also recommend. We finish by explaining some details about the free PS Plus games that Sony offers us with PlayStation 4. Without further ado, find out what these best free PS4 games are!
1. Apex Legends
Apex Legends came out in February 2019 to mixed reception but has managed to build a loyal community. It is a frenetic game of the Battle Royale genre, with high doses of action and characters clearly differentiated by their abilities. His approach to participating in three-player squads is another of his hallmarks.
If you love the premise of being the last one standing, facing unpredictable dangers, and pulling the trigger non-stop, then don't hesitate to give Apex Legends a try!
Warframe has come a long way since its release in 2013. Back then it was already an excellent game, but today you will find a true titan. In this futuristic third-person shooter and action game, you have enough content to play for months. And the best part is that the developers keep adding more!
In case you can play with friends, this game is a great opportunity to fight together with them against countless enemies and unlock the best possible equipment. The road is long, but it is a rewarding journey!
Is it necessary to say much about Fortnite? Now that Chapter 2 of the game is underway, the games have come to life more than ever before. Fortnite is another Battle Royale proposal, more relaxed, comical, and focused on having a lot of fun with your friends and family.
Of course, if you are a serious competitor, we assure you that in Fortnite you will find many worthy rivals. Being the last one standing in every game is not an easy task.
4. Destiny 2
If you love the Halo saga or futuristic shooters in general, you're in luck. Destiny 2 was re-released in the free-to-play model, excluding future content. It may seem that it is not a free game to use, but the story, gameplay, and free content are more than enough to lose you weeks in its world.
Destiny 2 is a game that you can play both cooperatively and competitively. In addition, you can decide to play with people or alone, so the gaming experience is perfectly tailored to your tastes.
Brawlhalla is a game that has many similarities to the Super Smash Bros. saga. In this one, you also fight against other rivals in scenarios worthy of a platform game, with endless action and an incredible number of characters. There are different modalities, some with more players than others, or that have the participants in teams.
For those who are looking for charismatic fighting games with engaging gameplay, Brawlhalla will surely satisfy you. The only negative point that we can put is that to play with most characters, you must unlock them or pay for them.
6. Let It Die
Think of a Dark Souls with very colorful characters and that takes everything with quite unique humor. That's what Let It Die is all about, where you control a character with the goal of overcoming tower challenges. There are many areas to explore, enemies, to defeat, and loads of equipment to help you overcome obstacles.
If you are passionate about hack & slash, action, and survival games, Let It Die must be an experience that you must try at least once. And be careful not to get caught forever!
7. DC Universe Online
DC Universe Online is an excellent and perfect game for fans of the characters from this line of comics. Not only will you have the great opportunity to meet many DC superheroes and villains, but you will be able to become one. Even more than that, you can even choose famous people as your own mentor!
It is a game with a persistent world, an old-school MMORPG that nowadays is free to play. There are tons of quests you can complete and endless ways to develop your character. If you know of other people playing DC Universe Online, join them!
Mechas, action, explosions, and competitiveness are what you will find in Hawken. You will be in command of one of the dozens of war machines that the game brings, and a detail to be thankful for is that you can customize the weapons. Each upgrade and weapon influences the gameplay and the way you should play each game.
Hawken includes different game modes and scenarios that are as detailed as they are varied. Compared to other games on this list, it's not the most complete title, but it's just as fun.

Free games with PS Plus
PS Plus is a subscription that is required to be able to play online with and against other players. Fortunately, this subscription brings with it a welcome gift: free games every month. The games included are usually of high quality and not old at all, so take advantage of them!
With these free PS Plus games, once you "purchase" and download them you can play them as many times as you want, as long as you keep your subscription. There are two negative points with that subscription:
If you unsubscribe, these free games will no longer be available until you renew your subscription.
If, for example, you have subscribed in December 2019, you will be able to get the games chosen for that month for free, but not for the previous ones. You will only be able to get the free games in the months that you have been subscribed to PS Plus.
That aside, if you're a regular PS Plus user, it's a very cheap option! As an example, in the following table, we show you the last 15 games of 2019 that PS4 players have been able to add to their collection, thanks to the subscription.
