Top PS4 Exclusives

The PlayStation 4 console went on sale back in 2013 and since its release has managed to acquire an extensive list of video games, which has only grown over the years. Nevertheless, Sony had to really try to provide gamers with a continuous stream of excellent exclusives. And unlike most Xbox One exclusives, Sony exclusives are not available on PC (for the most part 🙂 ).

If you are a happy owner of the console, then I will be glad to share with you the most favorite exclusives on the PlayStation 4. Below you will find brief information about them and a video that is useful to watch before buying.

GRAN TURISMO SPORT

Developer: Polyphony Digital

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Gran Turismo Sport is the thirteenth game of a series of racing simulations. Kazunori Yamauchi, creator and ideological mastermind of Gran Turismo, describes the new Sport as completely different from the entire franchise.

The game has three main modes: campaign, sports and arcade. In Gran Turismo Sport you cannot play carreer mode without connection to the internet (sadly), but the ability to compete with friends on the network is a big plus. The absence of day and night cycle not so big of a loss in the game (as for me).

One of the main aspects of Gran Turismo Sport is that the game is compatible with VR, namely the PlayStation VR headset. Although Polyphony Digital initially promised full support for VR, it was later announced that it would be possible to fully immerse yourself in the game world only in the special VR Tour mode.

DETROIT: BECOME HUMAN

Developer: Quantic Dream

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Detroit: Become Human is an interactive movie game developed by the French studio Quantic Dream. The main action takes place in the city of Detroit, Michigan. The game itself is designed in a neo-noir style and is based on the old technical demo of “Kara”, which was released back in 2012.

We control three different android characters. First we get acquainted with Kara, who fled from the factory in which she was created. Then Connor appears, forced to hunt deviant androids out of control. And finally Marcus, the leader of the outbreak of the revolution against the human race.

The plot of the game is completely dependent on the actions and choices of the player. And in the process of walktrough you will have to make really difficult decisions that will affect all characters.

During the walktrough, you can control different characters, whose actions will affect whether the members of the group can survive until dawn.

Interesting gameplay and beautiful visual style is a big plus of the game.

INFAMOUS: SECOND SON

Developer: Sucker Punch Productions

Infamous: Second Son is a game that definitely deserves a place on our list. At least for the incredibly accurately recreated Seattle and a huge amount of action. Particular attention is paid to details that repeat actual places.

Anyway we got release at 2016, but for the PlayStation 4 instead of PS3.

The same team that gave us Ico and Shadow of the Colossus participated in the development. Therefore, during the game there are a huge number of puzzles.

When it comes to God of War, it’s almost impossible to say something that you probably haven’t heard yet. The history of the franchise begins with the releases for the PlayStation 2 and does not cease to amaze us to this day. If we talk specifically about this game, then it would be more correct to consider as a restart of the franchise.

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Studio Naughty Dog really knows how to make great video games and continues to release exclusives for the PlayStation consoles not the first year. The Last of Us is one of the most recent releases, which has been re-sounded and slightly improved in the Remaster version.

The main event of the game takes place in a world that has recently survived a disaster, somewhat reminiscent of a “zombie apocalypse.” Most of humanity fell victim to the cordyceps fungus, which attaches to the victim’s body, turning the “owner” into something strange. And although it would not be entirely correct to call these zombie creatures technically, classifying them otherwise is quite difficult.
