Sony’s been giving away PlayStation 4 games with PlayStation Plus since the beginning of the generation in 2013, but it’s mostly titles from this year that have proved the favourites among fans. Among the five most downloaded freebies, only Just Cause 3 was given away prior to 2018. The remaining four titles, listed in no particular order, were all part of this year’s lineup: Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Destiny 2, Dead by Daylight, and Mafia III.
To be honest, we’re surprised not to see Rocket League or Resogun included in this roster, as they were arguably the two giveaways that got most attention. Then again, we suppose the PS4’s install base has increased drastically since those titles were handed out, and the fact is that there are more PS Plus subscribers now than there’s ever been, which means there’s a much larger pool of people actually downloading these games. Interesting stats nonetheless.
