The best games on PS Plus aren’t always the big names.
PS Plus subscribers in the U.S. now have access to over 700 games on its highest tier. We’re still hoping for more classic JRPGs, but there are already some great RPGs on PS Plus you may have overlooked.
The newest game on this list, Cris Tales is a throwback to classic JRPGs with a heavy emphasis on time travel in both story and battles. It also has a striking storybook art style and killer combat animations.
In Moonlighter, you balance your desire for adventure with the more mundane concern of making a living. Its shop-keeping and dungeon-delving segments are both satisfying in very different ways.
Despite sounding like a C-tier paperback novel, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning features solid action combat and a fun, customizable skill system.
Pillars of Eternity is an epic RPG inspired by D&D games like Baldur’s Gate. It features real-time combat with tons of skills that’s strategic and action-packed.
5. Battle Chasers: Nightwar
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is for fans of strategic turn-based combat where distinct characters pull off surprising combos from the developer that made Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.
Children of Morta is one of the best co-op RPGs in ages. It charts the story of a family using their unique abilities to protect their home from an awakening evil.
The sprawling Atelier series follows a host of likable characters. The games emphasize crafting more than most RPGs while still offering great turn-based combat.
Disgaea is an interesting series, to say the least. It’s packed with absurdly dense mechanics for improving characters and items, plus tough tactical battles. If you have a few hundred hours to spare, Disgaea will fill them easily.
