Free-to-play games aren’t exactly new to consoles, but we’ve never seen them in the number and variety that’s being made available in this new generation, especially on the PlayStation 4. Here’s a look at our five most anticipated free-to-play games for Sony’s home console.

As Polygon reported this summer, Sony has announced that upwards of 25 free-to-play games are heading to PlayStation consoles, primarily setting up shop on the PlayStation 4.

Xbox One seems to finally be getting in on this free-to-play jam, too, with Warframe releasing for the console earlier this week. They’re taking a bit more time to come around, however, so there isn’t a lot of news on what players can expect on the F2P front from Microsoft’s camp.

It’s a different story for Sony, with free-to-play getting an unexpected (yet totally welcome) push on the PlayStation 4 similar to that of the previous year’s mad indie rush. There are loads of F2P games on the way, from shooters and adventure games to MMOs and strategy. Here’s a rundown of the five gratis games we’re most excited to dive into.

Planetside 2
This one has been a long time coming for the PlayStation 4, originally rumored to be aiming for a launch window release on the new console. One of the folks running the Planetside 2 demo at E3 this year told me that the developer is aiming for a launch sometime in 2014, but that’s all he would say on the matter. For the uninitiated, Planetside 2 is a big, meaty first-person shooter where the war never ends and the enemies are plentiful. It’s all about region control in Planetside 2, and players are given all of the firepower they could ever need to pull of their objectives on the ground, rolling on tires or flying in the air. And did we mention that a single in-game continent can support upwards of 2,000 combatants? Yeah, it’s a pretty big shooter.
