Elden Ring 3

Genre: Action RPG
Difficulty rating: 7/10

The first of multiple games developed by FromSoftware on this list, Elden Ring is undoubtedly one of the hardest games on PS4. But thanks to its open world format, you at least have a fighting chance.

Head straight through Elden Ring‘s story and you’ll find yourself having a difficult time indeed. In fact, some might consider it the hardest game on PS4 for that reason. The fact that you can go away, explore, and considerably power yourself up to totally obliterate a boss on your return, however, means that while Elden Ring is hard, it appears at the lower end out our list.

So, if you’re after a challenge, Elden Ring will provide you with one. But you’ll never find yourself feeling like you’ve hit a brick wall. It’s just one of the reasons why we think it’s not only one of the hardest games on PS4, but also one of the best.
