The latest PlayStation Store sale discounts a range of ‘essential” PS4 and PS5 games.
This week’s new PlayStation Store features a large selection of PS4 (and PS5) games that Sony deems essential. We’re not sure that every game lives up to that billing, but many of them are excellent and worth grabbing at a discount.
Personal favourites include the excellent Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition. It’s a wild and sprawling JRPG that is packed with character and emotional story beats. It also adds some much-needed QOL improvements to the original edition.
The Chinese Room’s Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture also remains one of my generational highlights.
Other sale titles include Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Batman: Arkham Knight, and Watch Dogs: Legion. It’s also pleasing to see a few PS VR titles in the mix.
The PlayStation Essential Picks sale ends on March 27, 2021. For the full list of included games and discounts, visit your regional PS Store.
