Updated on

You would be hard-pressed to find a better price to pay for games, than free. And through the power of the PlayStation Plus system, many players are able to enjoy Free-to-play titles which are great. This allows players to explore experiences free of charge with no strings attached. This is wonderful for the consumer. So today, we are here to highlight some of the best free games on offer. That said, enjoy our picks for the 5 Best Free-to-Play Games on PlayStation Plus.

5. Fortnite

Starting off our list of the best free-to-play games on PlayStation Plus, we have Fortnite. Now, Fortnite is a game that essentially took over the gaming space overnight, with its consistent content updates and adaptability. The world of Fortnite is one that is absolutely massive, and malleable to the point where it can become anything the player wishes it to be. This adaptability, coupled with its more cartoony art style, and free-to-play model make it really stand out. The game mainly focuses on third-person battle royale gameplay where players duke it out to be the last ones standing.

This can lead to some rather tense matches. Where the game differentiates itself is with its building and destruction systems. Players are able to build fortifications in order to protect themselves. And while there is now a mode in the game that does away with this feature when it was released it gave Fortnite an element other games couldn't replicate. Currently, Fortnite is a game that can essentially become whatever the players wish to pay at the time. For this versatility, we consider it one of the best free-to-play games on PlayStation Plus.

4. Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0

Staying in a somewhat similar vein with free-to-play shooters, we have Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. When many fans found out that the popular battle-royale game mode for Call of Duty was being reworked, they were trepidatiously excited. This wasn't without reason, as many players felt that the developers were abandoning the current version of the game to scrap it for another. However, when Warzone 2.0 launched, players' worries were quickly quelled. This introduced quite a bit of new content to the game, as well as several new mechanics.

This served to not only make the game stand out from its previous iteration but game it its own identity as well. There were a few changes such as changing how loadouts were changed mid-match. As well as other sweeping changes that for the most part, improved the game. While there are definitely detractors of where this game is heading, it is still an amazingly solid experience overall. To close, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0i is one of the best free-to-play games on PlayStation Plus.

3. Rocket League

Changing things up a bit with our next entry, here we have Rocket LeagueRocket League is a game in which players will essentially play soccer with incredibly powerful cars. This is a game that requires immense skill and strategy. This is due to the fact that the game itself has an insanely high skill ceiling for players to learn. That said, the skill floor is rather low, and anyone can pick up this free-to-play PlayStation Plus title and play it. This is great, as it manages to balance the more hardcore elements of the game, with the more casual setting, which can be difficult to do.

No matter how you choose to play, this game is certainly one of the most entertaining on our list on a base level. This is due to the fact that the game is easy to follow, and easy to pick up, but difficult to master. This makes it well worthwhile for players to put time into learning the game and its mechanics. Additionally, the game being free-to-play removes any barrier of entry really, which is great. All around, if you are looking for a solid experience on PlayStation PlusRocket League is a great choice.

2. NARAKA: Bladepoint

Next up on our list of the best free-to-play PlayStation Plus titles, we have NARAKA: BladepointNARAKA: Bladepoint is a game that is a battle royale, which a twist. This is a game that takes the battle royale formula and applies it to a melee fighting game. The game comes equipped with classes for players to choose from, each with its own uses, and unique abilities. This is great, as it gives many of the game's characters and classes identity when playing. The game also has a surprising amount of weaponry in the game, for players to master.

These weapons vary in their skill floors and skill ceilings, but each is able to be wielded by a novice player. This is great, as it eliminates the idea that simply getting more powerful weapons in the game is a surefire way to win. This is wonderful, as it places more of an emphasis on individual player skills. So, for players who enjoy melee fighting games, and want to see how that plays out in a battle-royale setting, this is the game for you. In closing, NARAKA: Bladepoint is one of the best free-to-play PlayStation Plus games.

1. Overwatch 2Free Online Multiplayer Games

Rounding out our list of the best free-to-play games on PlayStation Plus, we have Overwatch 2Overwatch 2 is a game that serves as a sequel to the highly-popular Overwatch. This automatically placed a ton of expectations on the game, and the decision to make the game free-to-play only heightened everyone's anticipation for it. While the game did have some behind-the-scenes development issues regarding its PvE content, PvE offerings have come to the game. And while they may be a far cry from what initially was promised, they are certainly serviceable.

The bread and butter of Overwatch 2 is its multiplayer gameplay. Players are placed into teams of five, with one tank per team, and duke it out on artful, beautifully designed maps. The character pool in the game is also vast and has a varied amount of playstyles represented therein. This is great for players old and new, as there are always new tips and tricks to learn or more characters to play around with. In short, Overwatch 2 is not only one of the best free-to-play PlayStation Plus games but a great game in its own right.
