Of the best studio -known by the Killzone franchise, Horizon Zero Dawn is quite a change of pace.

& # 39; Injustice 2 & # 39; ($ 38 +)
Tracking the success of Injustice: Gods between U and Mortal Kombat X the developer NetherRealm delivered his best fighting game to date with Injustice 2 . The refinements of the already great mechanics of Injustice: Gods Among Us would have been sufficient to recommend Injustice 2 but the study completely exceeded our expectations. With stunning visuals and character animations, the well-written and grim story offered one of DC's best stories in years. But it is the system of multiple and deep personalization that gives Injustice 2 his legs. Each fighter can be leveled and customized with items obtained from loot boxes. Basically, Injustice 2 mixed the fighting genre with role elements, which made him a unique fighter in quite some time. His excellence continues to give more play, with Multiverse events changing and updating continuously. Perfect for solo players, and an enthusiastic good time online, Injustice 2 easily wins the distinction of the best fighting game on PS4.

Powerfully popular in Japan, the Shin Megami Tensei series has become increasingly popular among Western players with each new entry.

& # 39; Bloodborne & # 39; ($ 20)
Bloodborne is not for the faint of heart. This role-playing adventure, a spiritual successor to Hidetaka Miyazaki Dark Souls takes the challenging combat and methodical clashes between bosses of the aforementioned games, but accelerates the game for a more frantic and tense experience. A dark and gothic backdrop and the Lovecraft story offer a sad backdrop for the white knuckle game. As a hunter, you will tour the city of Yharnam, where a strange curse has begun to turn the locals into senseless beasts. While it is not technically a horror game, Bloodborne & # 39; s scenario and high stakes combat are exceptionally scary. Be sure to stay alert, because the world of Bloodborne is full of relentless monsters and traps in every corner, making it one of the best PS4 games to date.

& # 39; The Witness & # 39; ($ 40)
The Witness the much-anticipated follow-up of Jonathan Blow's 2008 indie puzzle Braid is a beautiful, quiet, first-person exploration puzzle in the line of Myst . Like the classic of the 90s, they leave you on a mysterious island with little or no context, and you have the task of solving a series of riddles, which in turn allow you to explore more and discover the secrets of the island. Unlike Myst & # 39; s wide-ranging environmental puzzles, however, the challenges of The Witness are very clearly defined as interlaced panels with grids that must navigate like a labyrinth . Blow has iterated a rich syntax of puzzle mechanics within that coherent framework, which helps maintain the pressure.
