Battlefield 2042Battlefield 2042 is a middling addition to PS Plus

Battlefield 2042 — PS5, PS4

While the Battlefield 2042 trophies are a challenging feat to accomplish, it would appear that simply playing this game is somewhat of a challenge for many players — judging from the overall reception of the game anyway. Though, many of you who have been on the fence about EA's latest venture into the Battlefield franchise can now finally dive into the game completely for free, saving all your precious coins for other games. Who knows, you may end up really enjoying the latest instalment in the series, so it's always worth downloading.

Code VeinCode Vein is a welcome treat to PS Plus Essential

Code Vein — PS4

The Code Vein trophies are actually pretty robust and offer up a nice challenge for players to work their way through. There is a fun platinum trophy to snatch up in this dystopian landscape full of monstrosities to face. Create your hero (Revenant) team up with a partner, and take to the dungeons to decimate your foes and unravel the intricate and intriguing story that is interwoven into the world of Code Vein effortlessly. Also, the soundtrack is an absolute banger.

Minecraft Dungeons ~ SuperHeroArtMinecraft Dungeons is the perfect co-op game to jump into on PS Plus

Minecraft Dungeons — PS4

The Minecraft Dungeons trophies are actually incredibly fun and easy to earn, with a variety of miscellaneous, story-related, and combat-based trophies to focus on as you make your way through the many procedurally generated dungeons. While the game is fun to play all by yourself, Minecraft Dungeons springs to life when playing in co-op with one of your best friends. The crazy antics, the overwhelming enemy numbers, and the surprisingly cutthroat bosses offer up a wonderful and hilarious experience for you and your co-op buddy to enjoy together. We certainly need to consider adding Minecraft Dungeons to our best co-op games list.
