Single-player campaign-based gaming becomes exciting when you play as a hero of the story. Here are the top single-player games for PS4.
Many games are worth playing in the offline mode as single-layer games due to their fantastic cast, dialogues, and storyline. Indeed, playing games with friends is always fun, and you can always discover new things in multiplayer modes. However, running solo in the single-player can get pretty exciting if you play the right game.
In this case, The CPU Guide brings you the top 5 single-player games for PS4 that are still worth playing today. We assure you that once you get indulged in the storyline of these games, you won’t regret progressing through the campaign, as these titles will make it worthwhile.
1. God of War Ragnarok
Developer: Santa Monica Studio
Release Date: November 9, 2022
Kratos returned with Atreus in the God of War Ragnarok, which sold over 5.1 million copies worldwide. With the upgraded and refined weaponry, you can throw unique combos and attacks with Runic’s abilities. The game was exclusively released for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, making it highly compatible with Sony’s Hardware.
In the God of Ragnarok, players can experience an action-packed synergy between Kratos and Atreus to throw combo attacks. This way, you can increase the potential damage that can be done to the enemies. All the intense action and immersive gameplay make God of War an all-time favorite, with an emotional storyline joined by father-son bonding.
2. The Last of Us Part II
Developer: Naughty Dog
Release Date: June 19, 2020
The Last of Us Part 1 PC remake has received many negative reviews lately. But if you still wish to enjoy Ellie and Joel’s survival journey on PlayStation 4, then the Last of Us Part 2 would be the perfect option for a single-player game. The game is categorized among the PlayStation’s best-selling games due to its stealth-based action gameplay. In addition, it can be worth playing to predict events of TLOU Season 2 even if it may not cover the second part completely.
The Last of Us Part 2 has an emotional storyline but nothing too depressing. Like the God of War, you will experience another bonding between Joel and Ellie, who seems to share more of a father-daughter relationship (but are not related by blood). The game’s campaign mode is lengthy enough to keep you occupied for at least 25 hours. In my opinion, this is the best PS4 has to offer in a single-player game that still looks good on the new-gen PS5 console.
3. Resident Evil 4 Remake
Release Date: March 23, 2023
The Resident Evil 4 Remake has made history by selling over 3 million units, and it has gained popularity worldwide across all platforms. This classic horror-based action-adventure game was released for many platforms, including PlayStation 4, and it has now relatively improved with immersive new changes.
The storyline of the game shares the same old concept where we play as Leon Kennedy, who is on a mission to find the president’s daughter. The game’s Mercenaries mode will deliver more action in the competitive time frame of gameplay. Resident Evil 4 remake received high ratings from Metacritic like all the other versions, which makes it worth playing on PlayStation 4.
4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Developer: CD Projekt
Release Date: May 18, 2015
The Witcher Wild 3 Wild Hunt is another famous title that even received a next-gen update for the latest-gen consoles. Witcher 3 was released years ago from now on and still holds the title for being the most extensive story mode game of all time. If you plan to start the game on PlayStation 4, it may take you more than 170 hours to complete.
However, if you’re only fond of playing only the main storyline, it would still take you more than 50 hours to do so. The plot and story are set around Geralt’s challenge to defeat the Wild Hunt while searching for his daughter Ciri. So, if you’re into exploring a mysterious and magical world, Witcher 3 would be the perfect game for you.
5. Red Dead Redemption II
Developer: Rockstar Games
Release Date: October 26, 2018
How can we forget the Rockstar Games when enlisting the best games? The Red Dead Redemption 2 is still considered a masterpiece in graphics, gameplay, or storyline. The game served as a proper prequel to Red Dead Redemption, which portrayed the lifestyle of outlaws and a little background on John Marston’s story in movie-themed events.
The environment and open world of the game alone is enough to keep you indulged with the hidden easter eggs in the wild west. RDR2 sheds light on every detail, like hair-growing and gun-cleaning elements, making the game more realistic and immersive. The game was officially released for PS4, offering next-gen graphics and an immersive storyline that is still loved by the fans.
PlayStation is releasing innovative gaming technology with expected PlayStation 5 Pro rumors speculating online. However, some fans still remember old ways of playing games with offline single-player modes and compelling storylines. We hope the games we’ve compiled for you in the list will offer action-packed solo adventures that cannot be experienced in the competitive online world.
