    "Trove is an incredibly fun RPG! I was looking for a good mmo rpg to play for a long time, but from ARC to final fantasy, none of them really interested me. I took the advice here and tried trove, and I've been hooked ever since. It is an amazing gaming experience."

    "The game play is absolutely great. It is an intense skill-based game in which everything is a skill shot and with immersive game play with its nice third-person perspective. I suggest this game if you are into MOBAs. The game company is really fair. "

    "I had just recently gotten a PS4 as a gift from a friend, so I wanted to test out what it could do. I found AirMech and at first I was only going to use it to test out my PS4, but I have enjoyed the multiplayer in the game too much and it has become one of my favorite games to play."


Did you know that the first multiplayer game was invented in 1958? Physicist and electrician William Higinbotham invented the Tennis for Two video game in 1958. The game was made using an oscilloscope with custom aluminium controllers. The idea stemmed when Higinbotham worked on the device that displayed moving lines. Tennis was his first choice due to the oscilloscope captured the motions of a ball in midair. After a few hours, him and his team managed to finish the game and named it Tennis for Two. The finished result was a tennis game viewed from the side made up of bright lines and a ball. The game wasn't as pleasing to view as modern games, but it managed to awe exhibition attendees.

This undoubtedly became an inspiration for plenty of multiplayer games today, both free and paid. Plenty of these modern adaptations are available on PCs and consoles. One of the consoles that offer these multiplayer games is the PlayStation, with great success. Plenty of free PS4 games have hit the market and have proven to be as good as the ones that need payment. This fact is further proven by Fornite, a free to play game available on all platforms, winning two awards during the 2018 Game Awards. The game took home the Best Ongoing Game and Best Multiplayer awards this year. All these recognition, coupled with Fortnite's growing player base, further proves that PS4 free to play games are still going strong.

    "Talk about your massive battles. You hook up with your squad right away and then you participate others by taking to the air and engaging in dogfights, by maneuvering tanks, or by joining fellow infantry and rushing into ground battle. I like the tanks the best as they are very sturdy and make it fun to roll over hills and launch artillery at oncoming enemy vehicles"

    "Hawken is a FPS that takes place in a dystopian world. If that sounds familiar, well, it should, as it's a pretty standard game setting. I've heard great things about Hawken and have enjoyed playing it when I have a chance. It's free to play, which is great! But unfortunately, the game isn't available for PS4. "

    "IMHO it's one of the best games in this list for PS4. It's free, and it's already polished and the game isn't pay to win. These two nerds arguing under me both have points. Fortnite is a carbon copy of battle royale games, and it's a good one at that. But let's face facts, it's free, it's popular, and it's one of the games with the biggest player bases in the world."

    "Unfortunately what appeared to be a promising game at first, marred by several flaws. Completely unbalanced matching with other online players means you're often with beginners. While updates are occasional they don't seem to add much to the game and seemingly make it worse. I don't think it was worth it."
