PlayStation Plus is arguably the best console membership service you can sign up for. It often features incredible discounts on some of the best PS4 games and is a great tool for people who want to build up their game library in a hurry. Picking up physical copies of games at Target or GameStop is certainly an option, but if you want to save some cash, take advantage of the digital sales Sony runs on the PlayStation Store. Here are the best PS Plus game deals available right now.
We’ve seen Jason Voorhees kill countless unsuspecting teenagers over the years in his films, but what if you could become the masked killer and become the villain of your very own slasher flick in a game, of course. Friday the 13th: The Game uses asymmetric multiplayer, placing one lucky player in the role of Jason while the rest attempt to survive. Prove you’re the ultimate scream queen (or king) and take the baddie down for good!
Like your sports with a little science fiction and danger thrown in? Laser League has you covered. Hitting the colored lasers of the opposing team will result in a violent albeit temporary end, and you and your teammates have to keep a close eye on the changing arena in order to come out on top. Laser League is from the creators of OlliOlli, who know a little something about odd takes on sports.
Also free on PlayStation Vita in October, 2064: Read Only Memories is a complex and fascinating take on cyberpunk that uses a gorgeous pixel-art aesthetic, harkening back to the glory days of adventure games in the ‘90s. With brilliant voice acting and a cast of eccentric characters perfect for the setting, it proves that the genre doesn’t need enormous budgets to tell a deep and mysterious story.
You claim to be the smartest person in your squad, but can you back up all that talk? With the PlayLink game Knowledge is Power, you and your opponents answer trivia questions via your mobile devices, and only the most encyclopedic minds will come out on top.

The PlayStation 4 doesn’t have Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series, but it does have a very nice alternative in Brawlout. The fighter plays out almost exactly like Smash Bros., with plenty of wacky characters using over-the-top moves to take out their enemies and protect themselves. In addition to a selection of original characters, Brawlout also has special guests like Yooka-Laylee, as well as the heroes from Guacamelee! and Hyper Light Drifter. It’s normally $20, but you can get it right now for $16.
Konami’s Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is widely regarded as one of the best games of all time, and for the first time, it’s available on PlayStation 4. The bundle Castlevania: Requiem comes with the original PlayStation game as well as the lesser-known Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, which plays more similarly to the older NES and SNES Castlevania games. You can pre-order it right now for $17, and PlayStation Plus members save an additional 5 percent.
Both Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and Titanfall 2 launched in 2016, and they were among the best shooters released all year.

Titanfall 2, meanwhile, has one of the best campaigns of the entire generation, as well as plenty of free DLC. Its Ultimate Edition is only $12 right now.
