It’s a must have for Play Station 4, Mac and PC players.

3. The legend of Zelda: Breath of wild

The success that ‘The legend of Zelda: Breath of wild’ is experiencing after its Launch in March is unprecedented. The masterpiece which is playable on Switch and Wii U follows main character, Link, on his missions. The game begins at the Shrine of Resurrection where Link wakes up after a century.

What’s more, players can use Kratos and his son for interaction. You are sure to enjoy the game on Play Station 4.
