Supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-cars take to the field in Rocket League, a chaotic clash of arcade racing and the beautiful game. Slick controls ensure that its simple premise scores with Messi-like precision, providing a multiplayer experience that's easy to pick-up but almost impossible to put down. Nifty netcode keeps you on the pitch as much as possible, while unlockables allow you to kit out your car with sombreros and other similarly silly garbs.

4. Rayman Legends (PS4)

Available On: PS+ Extra

Originally planned as a Wii U exclusive, the death knell to Nintendo’s ill-fated home console proved positive news for PlayStation fans when it went multiplatform. Building upon the stunning UbiArt Engine of its predecessor, Rayman Legends is a sublime side-scroller from start-to-finish. While not all of the touchscreen gimmicks translate optimally to the DualShock 4, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better platformer than this on PS4.

Release Date: 31st Aug 2018 (USA) / 31st Aug 2018 (UK/EU)

Refining the tone of its writing and delivering a much better paced story, Divinity: Original Sin II is a huge improvement on an already great role-playing experience. Character creation is meaningfully in-depth, and every action throughout your adventure further defines your hero. As far as player choice goes, Larian's sequel is one of the very best titles on PS4, and the many paths that you can take make it a brilliantly replayable package.

Player choice is the defining trait of this ambitious RPG. Yes, the sequel to Divinity: Original Sin is the better game — both in terms of writing and gameplay design — but there's still so much enjoyment to pull from Larian's first outing. Some great questlines will have you questioning your moral compass, while playing alongside a friend is an option right from the start. Just try not to fall out with each other over differing opinions!

Release Date: 26th Mar 2021 (USA) / 26th Mar 2021 (UK/EU)

From the makers of A Way Out comes a more family-friendly adventure in It Takes Two, and it's a real winner. Only playable in co-op, you play the bickering parents of a young girl as they're turned into dolls. Exploring a strange fantasy spin on the real world, you must work together to return to normal. It's the sheer variety of gameplay — and how consistently good it all is — that impresses, with the game constantly reinventing itself with new ideas. The story and characters are a little hit and miss, but they shouldn't put you off an overall fantastic experience.
