10 Best PS4 Parkour Games to Let You Run Free
Video games have several things that have evolved over the years, and one of them very easily is the movement of the characters themselves. So with that in mind, check out these 10 best PS4 parkour games.
#10 Dying Light
The original Dying Light game is on this list and, ironically enough, recently made headlines via its developer saying that all work on the title is now officially complete! So, after years of work…it’s now a complete game. It’s a symbol for the gaming industry if you ask us.
In case you haven’t “asked” us, we’ll talk about how Dying Light sends you on an army mission to a city overrun with zombie threats. Now you must fight and fight your way through and around them in order to figure out what happened and see if the town can be saved.
The choices you make in the title will affect what happens in the end…so make sure you can live with them…even with the undead all around you.
#9 Flat Human Fall
Human Fall Flat is the kind of title that wants you to have fun in the absurdly unrealistic world it creates. In the game, you will be able to customize your character and then complete various challenges that will test your ability to solve puzzles, as well as deal with the unique physics of the game itself.
The game is not meant to be taken too seriously, but rather a fun experience where you test things out, see what sticks, how you can improve, etc. Sometimes games are just meant to be fun, and that’s it, so why not give it a try here with Human Fall Flat?
#8 Just cause 4
Just Cause 4 takes its action very seriously… by not taking it seriously. And by that we mean they pretty much throw everything at the game in order to make it bigger and grander than the previous title. And most of the time… it works. You once again play as Rico Rodriguez, who travels to South America on a mission to try to liberate the nation of Solis.
Once there, you will create chaos as only you can. Using a variety of weapons, skills, vehicles, and even gliders and jetpacks, you’ll be able to unleash all manner of mayhem on a control in desperate need of order.
Oh, and did we mention you can ride in a tornado? Because you can. That’s how crazy this game is.
You are a blade fighter in a world that has already come to an end in its own way, and now Mara the Keymaster is trying to rule everything with an iron fist. The problem, of course, is that you don’t like this person and want revenge on them. The problem with THIS is that they are on top of their mighty tower and you have to climb to get them. Fun.
The game features lightning-fast gameplay and parkour fun, as you’ll use your upgraded abilities to climb the tower and one-hit kill the guards and goons that prevent you from getting to Mara. But be warned, this one-hit KO gameplay also affects you. So be quick, be smart, be quick with your blade and climb to the top of that tower.
#6 Dying Light 2
And now for a sequel to a game we talked about earlier. Dying Light 2 takes a lot of things from the original Dying Light and improves on them in several ways. One of them, and not the least, gives you even more freedom with your parkour in order to cross the new city in which you find yourself.
But it’s not just that, the game also gives you a bigger city with LOTS more choices that can be made within it. Your choices will help various factions in order to change the course of power and even the very layout of the city itself.
Naturally, there are also zombies that you need to outrun and fight. So be prepared for that as you play.
#5 Mirror Edge Catalyst
It’s hard to talk about Mirror’s Edge Catalyst because it’s kind of a remake of the original Mirror’s Edge, and both games promised to really change the way we look at gameplay and it’s… sort of done?
In the game, you play as Faith, a free runner (aka parkour specialist) who will deliver things throughout the city of Glass. But when a mission turns into something much more, your skills are going to be tested more than ever. The game wants you to use your parkour abilities to the fullest, traversing, around, and through the city of Glass in different ways.
And thanks to Faith, you’ll have various options on how you can traverse locations and overtake enemies. So see how good you can be when you run… to the edge of the mirror.
#4 Dishonored Series
The Dishonored series is one that makes you feel not just like an assassin, but like one whose power is truly beyond what exists in the world. Especially because it is! The game puts you in the role of a betrayed assassin, who must embrace the supernatural elements of the world (and themselves) in order to exact revenge.
As you progress through levels, you’ll use both natural and supernatural abilities to traverse levels, fight enemies, and more. The trick is that you can have real freedom in how you move forward. You can even play the whole game without killing anyone if you want.
So what kind of assassin will you be? Enter and find out.
#3 Titanfall 2
It’s rather poetic that we put Titanfall 2 in third place, because gamers of this game would love nothing more than to go and enjoy a Titanfall 3 title. Especially after the incredible gaming experience that gamers have had in the sequel.
While the first was just “surfing the water”, Titanfall 2 embraced what it really could be and gave players both in and out of mechanical suits a kind of mobility that really blew people away. . The game feels incredibly balanced even when watching a mech threat as a human.
Multiplayer battles can really get crazy, in a good way, and many can only imagine what would happen if Titanfall 3 were to actually happen.
#2 Assassin’s Creed Series
Overall, the Assassin’s Creed series has done a great job of showing how parkour-style gameplay can help people appreciate the world as a whole, as well as enhance gameplay. Let’s not forget that the original Assassin’s Creed featured your character climbing up a building and then jumping into a hay cart in order to show flexibility with the environment.
As the games progressed, things got smoother and more intense with what you could do with these moves both in combat and in how you traversed the various game worlds.
With each game, you see how big things can get, and while not all of them are successes, they try to make you feel like a fluid assassin who’s on a mission.
Series #1 Batman Arkham
Listen, anytime we can get the chance to praise the Batman Arkham series? We will, that’s how the world works. And while this game doesn’t embrace all things “parkour,” it does show off one of the most mobile versions of Batman ever.
After all, between its gadgets and ever-growing environment between Asylum, City, and Knight, you have to move around a bit to get things done. And that says nothing about the fight in which you go back and fly around to take out the bad guys.
While Arkham Knight doesn’t stand up to scrutiny overall, Asylum and City are more than worth your time, and the replay value is absolutely there.
So be the Batman again. Do it!
