PlayStation 4 games are not the cheapest things in the world to buy. Whilst it's fun keeping up with the zeitgeist and be a part of the conversation when new games come out, it's not always that easy to afford the shiniest, newest games.
The good news is, though, that at least PlayStation offers a few free games – and that's on top of the occasional games the platform offers players to play for free on the odd weekend.
But, these offers aren't available every week – and they're quite hard to predict.
So to keep you entertained and happy with a few new things to play on a week-by-week basis, we're scouring PSN for free games you can download, right now, for free.
Of course, we know you've heard about Fortnite, Apex Legends and so on – we're trying to focus on the more obscure or offbeat games… things you may not have heard about from all the big streamers.
This week, we're looking at Brawlhalla – which has just received a new update which adds Hellboy to the game!
What is Brawlhalla?
Here's what the developers say:
Over 40 Legends to chose from, each with unique movesets, signature abilities, stats, weapon combinations and flair to suit your personal playstyle. Master one, or learn them all.
More legends continue to join the fight in an ever-expanding roster of those who fight for glory, honor, and bragging rights in the Brawlhalla arenas.
Play locally with friends, try to get High Scores in single player, fight in chaotic Free-For-All online and offline, or making the climb from Placements to Platinum and Beyond on the ranked ladder. Theres a little something for everyone.
It doesnt matter if youre looking to unwind with friends, or if youre aiming to carve your name into the pillars of the Brawlhalla Competitive Community. Play Brawlhalla however you want, whenever you want.
And what do the reviews say?
Considering the game is an evolving fighting game, it's hard to say its an X/10 game – it's changing all the time, you see.
But there are a few reviews for the game out there – PushSqaure gave it a 7/10, noting: "Some presentation niggles aside, Brawlhalla is an entertaining fighter with fun, punchy combat that just about manages to capture that “one more match” feeling. While it isnt quite as tightly designed as the seminal Super Smash Bros., the large roster, wide range of modes, and a reasonable level of depth help it achieve a similar balance of accessibility and challenge."
The game also has a 9/10 rating on Steam – so you can see it's loved!
