    "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. "

    "Smite is a free to play game for 1 to 10 players on the PS4. It can be played in up to 5v5 matches. It is a different take on MOBA style play. It very much addresses the problem listed."

    "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."

    "Fortnite is just another free multiplayer sandbox and is basically a carbon copy of "Player Unknown's Battlegrounds". The maker's of Fortnite created their game in a effort to beat the previously mentioned title to a console release and have console fans playing their game first. In the overdone genre of battle royale style games Fortnite is just a carbon copy of what has already been done and done well."

    "Stop drinking the haterade Edward Washington and just admit that Fortnite is a more fun game than your Player Unknown's BAttlegrounds! And don't act like PUBG wasnt ripped off from earlier games! Face the facts bro, Fortnite's cartoony graphics and better gameplay and effects beat PUBG's by a mile, by a mile!!!!"

    "I have played Fortnite, but on the PC instead of the PS4. It's an awesome game where you create and fortify bases to help keep enemies out and try to protect your base at all costs. I find it an addicting game and absolutely love playing with my buddies to work out strategic plans on winning each game."

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. "

    "I don't really like robots and alien planets bt Hawken changed my mindset. the game is just too good! Some would say it is a rip off from overwatch or other shooter mobas but the robots just looked and felt realistic so it convinced me that these games are not so bad after all. "

    "AirMech looks fun, but only if you're an RTS fan. I personally hate RTS games, and prefer action adventure, RPGs, and FPS, so I don't think this is a very good solution. On top of which, playing any strategy game on a console is a recipe for a bad time."

    Written on March 24, 2018
    "It's great for that feeling of commanding your own starship, and that's about it. If you like role playing your characters or building of the story with what's in your head, you can stick it out a bit longer and still enjoy it. It's impressive that this is an MMO that you can play from both your ship and as an individual avatar, but beyond these points, it leaves a lot to be desired and largely relies solely on the premise of being Star Trek. The story is disappointing, convoluted and transparently flaud, and not at all "Trek" for anyone who wants to play around in that universe. It has since become a game that shoots players through the beginning content until they reach the highest level where the only way you can really excel or compete is to pay more money for virtual ships, guns, do-dads, etc. Gamers will know this as "Pay-to-Win."

    "Well sir @Brian, I think that's because this game was initially released for PC almost 10 YEARS AGO! that's why the gameplay is kind of behind in terms of today's graphics and gameplay. But for someone like me who only played it in PS4, it was enjoyable, especially how it offers a different feeling from the Star Trek shows, I mean if you wanted to see and feel that you should just have watched the series!"

    "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."
