The Summer PlayStation Hits Lineup is Pretty Impressive

PlayStation Hits Summer 2019

Five new games are coming to the PlayStation Hits collection on June 28, 2019, meaning you'll soon be able to get your hands on more critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 titles for just $20 each. This new wave of games comes in addition to five more — including Persona 5 and Star Wars Battlefront — added in recent months.

Sony's PlayStation Hits series has been around since the days of the original PlayStation, although it was called "Greatest Hits" up until the PS4. The collection aims to make older PlayStation titles that fans may have missed available at a more affordable price. Originally launched last June, this generation's lineup has grown to include PlayStation exclusive games like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Until Dawn and The Last of Us Remastered, as well as third-party games like Doom (2016), Batman Arkham Knight and Battlefield 4.

Set in a prehistory-esque, robot-ridden, post-apocalyptic world, 2017's Horizon Zero Dawn marked the beginning of an exciting new exclusive franchise for the PlayStation. At launch, we enjoyed the game's fun weapons and secret-filled world, and we called it the second-best game of 2017.  The complete edition includes the base game and the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds expansion, along with a digital art book and other digital goodies.

Two more of the new additions made our best of 2017 list: the Dark Souls-like Nioh and Capcom's Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Nioh took precise, difficult combat to feudal Japan, and it had a "wonderful style" that we thought distinguished it from the games it drew inspiration from. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard game shook up the series' normal gameplay and took the horror franchise to a first-person perspective, which created a real sense of vulnerability. If players want to feel even more vulnerable, the PS4 version is entirely playable in PlayStation VR.

It's always nice to see good games at cheap prices, and—as we approach the next generation of consoles—it's a great time to catch up on old releases. Plus, with the possibility of the PS5 being backwards compatible, there's a chance you might get to carry these games forward with you to future hardware (and they might even run better when you play them there).
