2. Rogue Company

3 Genshin Impact

  • Genre: action RPG
  • Release year: 2020

Genshin Impact is an action RPG with graphics and mechanics taken straight from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game is not an MMORPG and it is only possible to interact with other players by joining their worlds on a temporary basis.

5 Apex Legends

6. Never-winter

  • Release year: 2022

Neverwinter is one of the best free MMORPGs you'll find on PS4. The game doesn't innovate much in relation to other titles, but it doesn't leave anything to be desired either.

7. DC Universe Online

  • Genre: MMORPG
  • Release year: 2022

DC Universe Online has been on the rise for quite some time now and it doesn't seem to want to lose the spot. It's ideal for all geek superhero fans. For a free game, the title is vast.

The cool thing is being able to have a master on the chosen side. Batman, Wonder Woman or Superman on the Justice League side. Lex Luthor, Joker or Circe on the side of the "bad guys".
