Each shooter from this collection will surely captivate you with its plot, game mechanics and smart opponents who are able to make a great challange for the players. So, here is a list of the best single-player shooters on PS4 as for the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020.
UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF’S END
Drake’s last adventure can be safely called the best part of the Uncharted series: it is an expensive (not in terms of price, but in terms of filling) 15-hour journey into a world where danger awaits at every turn, and rare moments of calm are replaced by desperate shootings.
In the fourth part of the series (by the way, you can also get acquainted with the original trilogy remastered for PS4) Nathan Drake embarks on another adventure – this time to save his brother. And here, developers made everything 100% great, giving the players an excellent story that reveals the key characters, and exciting gameplay with unforgettable action scenes (the chase with the truck will definitely remain in your memory for a long time). If this doesn’t seem enough, then Uncharted 4 multiplayer will help you extend your adventure for a few more hours.
The DOOM series is a constant guest, and often the leader of various collections of the best shooters. And the game of 2016 is another confirmation of the undeniable leadership of the franchise in this genre. You will get 8 hours of pure pleasure from battles with demons, during which you will shred, shoot and tear apart enemies who dare to challenge the Doom Guy.
DOOM (2016) will take you to Mars, where through the efforts of crazy scientists, a portal to Hell was opened. Now you need to seal it until the demons have escaped beyond the Red Planet. You will get a lot of vivid emotions from an extremely dynamic gameplay with the best shooter mechanics by the authors of id Software.
WOLFENSTEIN: THE NEW ORDER
An alternative story in which Nazi Germany won the Second World War is an ideal setting for a hurricane shooter, which is Wolfenstein: The New Order. Here, in the role of the permanent protagonist of the Wolfenstein series, Jay Blaskowitz, you will fight against opponents armed to the teeth, using a huge arsenal of fictional weapons.
However, attention is paid not only to The New Order, but also an independent add-on prequel – Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, as well as the continuation of the game – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, in which you have to free America, fly to Venus and meet with the Fuhrer. Finally, there is also a Youngblood spin-off dedicated to the Blaskowitz daughters, but we recommend playing it only if you have a company for co-operative walktrough.
KILLZONE: SHADOW FALL
Exclusive PS4 FPS game that continues the plot of the Killzone game series. This time, the action takes place on the planet Vekta, where the Helgasts settled after the events of the previous game. If you don’t understand what it’s about, don’t worry – to play in Shadow Fall it’s not necessary to go through the previous episodes of the series, they will tell you everything and show you everything so you will be up to date to the game story.
Killzone: Shadow Fall is characterized by high-quality shooting, a vivid picture (contrasting with the gloomy landscapes of the first three games) and a rich set of game mechanics related to using the functions of futuristic weapons and an advanced drone in the service of the protagonist. If you are looking for an impeccable fantastic shooter, then this game will become one of the main contenders for your attention.
FAR CRY 5
Far Cry games are exemplary first-person shooters in the open world, where the player entertains himself in an ever-changing environment. The series evolved with each part until it turned into a perfect action movie, full of many activities.
Far Cry 5 talks about a hero who fights a sect that captured Hope County in the American outback. He will have to speak out against the charismatic leader of the sect and his relatives. This will be an adrenaline rush of gunfights, chases and explosions. You can blame the shooter for the lack of fresh ideas and problems with the plot, but in terms of gameplay this game is able to satisfy even the most demanding FPS player. Well, if this setting is not to your taste, then pay attention to the previous game in the series, Far Cry 4, which takes place in the exotic Himalayas.
Titanfall 2 suffered a difficult fate – the game was released between the major releases of the Battlefield and Call of Duty franchises. That is why there is not much players in the online multiplayer mode.
However, this does not negate the fact that Titanfall 2 implements an exciting storyline campaign dedicated to the adventures of the newly minted pilot and his Titan, who explore the corners of the distant Frontier. Here you will find parkour, time travel, fast-paced shootings in the spirit of Call of Duty, as well as impressive robot battles, reminiscent of either the Transformers or the Pacific Rim.
CALL OF DUTY: WWII
Call of Duty: WWII – a return to the roots and the last (at the end of 2019) game of the series with a good storyline. WWII events unfold during the Second World War, and the main characters have to fight the Nazis on the Western Front, liberating Europe.
The shooter developers gave the players an interesting military history and addictive gameplay that feels fresh thanks to a return to the historical setting and the lack of automatic health regeneration. However, if World War II is boring for you, I suggest paying attention to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – this part of the series will send you to the distant future, where you will move between the planets of the solar system and fight the Martian separatists who launched the war against the Earth.
Having given the restart of the Prey franchise into the hands of Arkane, known for the Dishonored series, Bethesda presented us with a stunning immersive sim shooter with a non-linear environment and an exciting story.
The plot, which begins with an alien invasion, over time develops into something deeper and even philosophical, and the gameplay allows you to act with the methods that you invent yourself.
BLOOD & TRUTH
This shooter is designed for a PlayStation VR headset, the possibilities of which are fully revealed. An interesting criminal story here is combined with fascinating shootouts, and the movement system, although limited by control points, shows mesmerizing landscapes and allows you to interact with the environment.
In general, Blood & Truth implements a large number of game mechanics, so the shootings are not limited to. You will climb walls and break locks, hide behind shelters. Needless to say, reloading in the game is also carried out manually. This is a dynamic, entertaining and stressful shooter that you should definitely buy for PS VR (if you have one).
