PS5 A Plague Tale: Innocence

A Plague Tale, released on PS4 in 2019, and until this point, we didn’t have a Next-Gen Version, but we do now for free.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is a dark, grisly game about kids surviving impossible odds in a heartrending journey through the darkest hours of history in a plague-infested medieval France.

That. and rats. Lots of rats.

This action-adventure horror game, played in the third person, offers an adventure supported by an original scenario, with gameplay that blends action, adventure, and stealth phases. Developed by Asobo Studio, the game revolves around the playable character of Amicia de Rune, a young girl of noble descent who lives with her family in Aquitaine.

The game follows our protagonists Amicia and her little brother Hugo. Other than Hugo’s mysterious illness, they appear to live a reasonably decent life. But as their adventure begins, the time of innocence ends. Both Amicia and Hugo find themselves on the run from the terrifying Inquisition.

During the early game, the French Inquisition comes to your home and executes your father while your mother aids your escape. Hugo has been locked away most of his life as your mother tried to find a cure for him. The first part of the game introduces the playing style by taking you through several stealth phases as you attempt an escape from your family home.

While fleeing to a nearby village, you learn that our young heroes will also need to survive against an even greater danger: supernatural swarms of rats.

Unstoppable swarms of rats have been spreading the black plague and killing everything they come across. This results in villagers blaming Hugo for the spread of the plague due to his illness.

For most of the game, stealth becomes your best friend as you look to solve survival puzzles and evade hostile villagers, who blame Hugo for the plague and try to kill him, and Inquisition soldiers.

If caught, enemies will kill Amicia instantly, but you do have some tools at your disposal. Equipped with a sling, Amicia can create distractions or stun guards. Amicia can also kill enemies with a headshot as long as they have no head protection, but this is always a last resort. The ravenous rats can also be used to your advantage by allowing them to take out guards while avoiding them yourself. Hugo plays a big part as he can be directed to areas that Amicia cannot access, although this is risky as he will panic if he is left alone too long, which may also attract unwanted attention.

The main story point of the game is family and how relationships are challenged during hard times. Hugo also plays a big part, and you will see him grow based on Amicia’s behavior, and watching his transformation from an innocent boy to an individual is where this game excels.

If you haven’t already checked this original game out, you should. With a sequel coming in 2022, it’s right on track to becoming a lot of people’s favorite game. A Plague Tale: Requiem is set to be an emotional and breathtaking journey.

If you’re not adverse to rats, this game is a fantastic addition to your PS5 library.

PS4 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

First released on PS4 in 2018, this edition is the sequel to the 2015 Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and the fifth entry in the Black Ops sub-series.

PS4 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Black Ops 4 was the first Call of Duty title not to feature a single-player campaign. While this annoyed a lot of players on release, it still gained positive reviews due to the sweeping changes, including Call of Duty’s first Battle Royal mode. This was also the first Call of Duty title to feature distinctive, separate storylines for Zombies.

Multiplayer

Black Ops 4 saw the return of Specialists, unique soldiers with abilities and traits, and returning characters from Black Ops 3. Automatic health regeneration was also removed in favor of a manual healing system. Weapons were also changed to have predictive recoil patterns and a mixed ballistic system. Weapon customization also features heavily, allowing for more personalization while attachments were given tiers which offered more significant improvements to weapon handling.

Zombies

Zombies makes its return once more, featuring a wide range of customization, which allows for more personal playstyles. Custom load-outs are included and enable the player to select different equipment and perks. A new zombie game type was also added called Rush. Players build up points and multipliers while competing against other players for the biggest points total possible before death.

Blackout

The first battle royale mode for Call of Duty still stands out as one of its biggest selling points and the blueprint for Call of Duty War Zone. Up to 100 players must scavenge for loot after being dropped off via helicopter, with the last one standing the winner. You can play this on your own, in duos, or with a squad of 4. This mode also features zombie-themed locations where ai controlled zombies will spawn, which once killed drop zombie-themed loot.

Call of Duty fans will be in for a bout of nostalgia with this inclusion, but it also offers a lot of playability for the more casual fans of first-person shooters.

PS4 WWE 2K Battlegrounds

PS4 WWE 2K Battlegrounds

Battlegrounds was released on PS4 in September 2020 in lieu of 2K’s regular yearly

WWE game. Battlegrounds is a more fast-paced, arcade-style fighting game which is as far away from the more realistic entries fans will be used to, but it does allow more casual fans to get on board.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds is more cartoony than the usual fare. It’s arcade-inspired, blending Superstars and Legends together into an experience filled with interactive environments.

The short campaign is told in a comic book art style. The story mode does have moments that make you smile and only lasts for roughly 5 hours, so it is ideal for casual gamers. Match’s themselves are relatively easy to win due to the lack of variety of moves at your disposal (Square is about to become your new best friend). Wrestlers do have their official entrance music but not entrances, leading to them dropping into the ring inside a crate. With a variety of game modes that you can play against the AI or other people in multiplayer, the game really comes into its own.

Microtransactions do feature heavily, and while you can earn in-game currency, it will take a long time to make enough to unlock the best characters.

Not a game for the wrestling purists but for a fun, light-hearted arcade game for free, you can’t really go wrong. Who doesn’t love feeding a wrestler to an alligator?
