Looking for something to do while you’re stuck indoors? We’ve had a good look through the full PS4 catalogue to find the best free games currently available on the Playstation Network.

Call of Duty: World War 2 (with PS Plus until July 7th)

This first-person run and gun classic is currently available for free with a PS Plus account. With a still-thriving online community and a completely different feel to the recent Modern Warfare reboot, it’s definitely worth picking it up if you haven’t tried it. The main campaign is gripping and the multiplayer modes are a bit less frenetic than in its successor, so if you’re looking for a change of scenery, this could be the answer. Tally ho! 

Star Wars Battlefront 2 (with PS Plus until July 7th)

Arguably the best Star Wars game since (showing my age here) Dark Forces; and that’s saying something. Relive the best battles from the movies and create some epic new ones (Chewbacca vs Darth Vader, anyone?). Since this arrived on PS Plus, there’s been a big surge in the number of people playing online, so it’s a good time to get stuck in, as you won’t be the only newbie. Play it, you must.

Modern Warfare: Warzone

This free offshoot-version of Modern Warfare registered over 60 million players in under three months – and for good reason. It’s probably the most intense and compelling online gaming experience going at the moment - and with a stream of nightly tournaments to drop into, you’ll never be short of new challenges. The game is still receiving constant updates, and rumours suggest it’ll continue to be supported by Activision for years to come. Great fun – just make sure you stay away from fire station ladders in Verdansk (seriously, don’t say we didn’t warn you). 

Apex Legends

Another critically acclaimed Battle Royale game makes the list, but this one has a futuristic feel and a slightly more vibrant aesthetic. It’s arguably the slickest, most entertaining, and polished game in its category and it continues to set all the trends in the genre. The world-map is flawless and they’re constantly adding new features and opening up new areas to explore, so no two games will be the same. Well worth a download.  

Fortnite

One of the most talked-about and played games of all time, a favourite of youngsters the world over and a genuine cultural phenomenon. Don’t let the cartoony graphics fool you though, there’s an extremely deep and compelling game in there. Even if you’re usually into grittier gaming experiences and the bright aesthetics put you off a bit, we highly recommend you spend some time with it. You might just like it!
