We put the magnifying glass on the best free PS4 games and demos available on PS4. There is life beyond Apex Legends, Fortnite, and Call of Duty: Warzone.
The seven years of PlayStation 4 in the market have given enough juice to nourish its digital store with all kinds of proposals. Since those beginnings with DC Universe, Blacklight Retribution, and co, PS Store signs a generation end full of experiences with which to accompany its users every morning, afternoon, and night.

All the progress you make in it will be saved in your Modern Warfare profile in case you want to jump into multiplayer, so each experience point you achieve can be reflected in the other modes.
You must also bear in mind the particularities crossed between the platforms. All PC, Xbox One, and PS4 users can play each other through the Activision infrastructure. Progress will also be linked to the same profile in case you want to download it to another platform, which will take you everything you unlock, purchases in the store, and the advance of the battle pass. Never before has Call of Duty felt this way.

That mix of cartoon fantasy merges with a fast game, easy to play and difficult to master. As we kill and find loot, we will obtain shards, a currency that we can exchange in the forges around the map in exchange for legendary weapons, runes (perks), or health or armor potions. When we die, we will have around 20 seconds to revive from our “chicken” state, where we will be extremely weak at the cost of greater speed.
