At any rate, here our top five picks for the best of the PlayStation Summer Sale. Additionally, we’ll include a list of honorable mentions at the bottom, so stick around!
Doom took the world by storm with its 2016 reboot. It introduced high-octane, relentless demon-slaying gameplay with gorgeously gruesome visuals. Needless to say, it scored high 9s and 10s by critics and public audiences alike. Its sequel, Doom Eternal, once again puts you in the demon-stepping boots of the Slayer. With a perfected formula, new gameplay mechanics, and seamlessly embedded metal OST to slay demons to, Doom Eternal easily secures its spot on this list. Not to mention, its on sale after being out for just four months!
You can get Doom Eternal for 40% off for Standard version, and 50% off for Deluxe.
Hideo Kojima’s latest title, Death Stranding, has at least been under your radar once. Its gameplay showcase raised some questions as many perceive it as a delivery-man simulator with an obscure story. While a hefty early portion of the game involves avoiding confrontation altogether, there is actual weapon combat in its gameplay. Death Stranding is more than just that, however, as it also involves in-depth resource management to ensure you “connect” America successfully. In this “genre-defying” experience, it’s up to you as Sam Porter Bridges, to prevent mankind from impending annihilation. If you were ever on the fence about getting it before, you can now experience the adventure at a heavily discounted price.
You can get “Death Stranding”, both Standard and Deluxe, for 60% off.
