The PlayStation Store is running an Essential Picks sale on PS4 games, and it's an early chance to save a bit on The Last of Us Part II ($49.99) if you're up for a long, draining, ultimately impressive adventure.
Other essentials include Dreams ($29.99), Days Gone ($21.99), Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds ($4.99), Uncharted 4 ($14.99), Marvel's Spider-Man GOTY($19.99), and God of War ($14.99). You also shouldn't miss WipEout Omega Collection ($9.99) even if you've never tried the anti-grav racing series.
The rest of the list is mostly more of the usual fodder, with one surprising exception: the Nioh 2Season Pass is down to $13.99. Based on the quality of the first DLC, The Tengu's Disciple, I'd jump on it. For as often as some of these games go on sale, discounts on season passes can be annoyingly elusive.
I've listed out the US PlayStation Store deals below, and you can find the EU deals here.
A separate PlayStation Store sale – Games Under $15 – is running simultaneously.
It has a lot of genuinely worthwhile titles, to the point where I'm wondering why they weren't lumped in with the "essential picks." Bloodborne ($12.99), Ratchet and Clank ($9.99), Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition ($12.99), Until Dawn($9.99), Far Cry 3 Classic Edition ($9.89), Gran Turismo Sport ($12.99), inFamous Second Son($9.99), and Shadow of the Colossus ($9.99) all stand out. You do you, Sony.
