2Astro’s Playroom

Astro's Playroom (1)

One of the PS5’s very best games that is entirely free is sitting right on your hard drive as soon as you set it up. Its name is Astro’s Playroom.

Essentially a showcase of what the DualSense controller can do, Astro’s Playroom is a 3D platformer that has simply no right to be as good as it is. It contains four beautifully dense worlds for you to explore, each one themed around a specific PlayStation console. Each world has unique mechanics for you to master too; climbing into numerous suits, you’re able to climb like a monkey, jump like a frog, and even fly a small spaceship. All the while, you feel the pitter-pattering of feet in the DualSense controller and a whole lot more.

Honestly, if you have a PS5, don’t overlook Astro’s Playroom. It truly is one of the best free games on PS5 – hell, it’s one of the best games on PS5 full stop. Its only downside is that you’ll have probably completed it in around three hours or so and will be left totally wanting more.
