PlayStation is as good a platform as any to play a swathe of great PS4 sports games. Most come by way of publishers EA and 2K, which excel in offering players competitive experiences in a variety of sports fields. The one unique feather in PlayStation 4’s cap is baseball, with MLB The Show being the one major sports franchise that is exclusive to the platform. Here we’ll highlight that, as well as various others of the very best PS4 sports games.
As previously alluded to, MLB The Show is the only Triple-A baseball sports fame released on any console every year, thanks to an exclusive deal struck by PlayStation and its first-party developer Sony San Diego. The result is a sports franchise capable of harnessing the power of the PS4 rather than stretch its priorities across consoles, making MLB The Show 19 the best baseball simulator yet. Play as legacy players in “Moments” as well as guide yourself to glory in PS4’s hallmark baseball game.
FIFA is not only one of the best PS4 sports games you can find (it’s actually available on almost every platform ever) but it’s also the biggest and best-selling one – and has been for quite some time. Recent years have seen the celebrated football series soar to new heights thanks to drastic engine overhauls that renders player physics more realistic, the addition of women squads and a competitive online mode known as Ultimate Team. FIFA 19 advances all these aspects and more to make EA’s series the premier football title.
An extreme sports game isn’t the kind you’d usually expect from the studio behind Assassin’s Creed, Ghost Recon and more, but that’s exactly what Ubisoft delivered in 2016 with the release of Steep. Setting players off within the snow-laden slopes of the French Alps, activities like skiing, wingsuit flying, snowboarding, and paragliding are all at your disposal. Steep looks great, feels good to handle and is as close you can get to feeling like an extreme sports athlete on PS4.
