We are moving on to our next entry with The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. For any player who has experienced The Outer Worlds, this title's inclusion should come as a no-brainer, so to speak. The world of The Outer Worlds remains as rich as it was upon its release. Players are whisked away into a sci-fi world that is filled with character and charm. Along the way, players are encouraged to make their own choices, regardless of what friends or foes they make along the way.

The next entry on our list has seen a resurgence of popularity lately. Here, we have Fallout 4. The Fallout franchise has stood at the pinnacle of the RPG genre for quite some time. However, with the Next Gen update, Fallout 4 has been transformed into the best possible version of itself. The addition of features such as the Survival mode and other aspects make this the best time to revisit or visit the wastelands for the first time. Regardless of how you enjoy the game, one thing you cannot deny is the quality of the game.

Whether it is the world that players inhabit or the characters that inhabit its world, there is something magical about the wastelands players find themselves in. The game's combat and RPG mechanics still retain their level of polish as well. The combat also feels the best in the Fallout series as a whole, which is a great plus. The freedom that players have with character builds is also marvelous to see. In conclusion, Fallout 4 remains one of the best RPGs on PlayStation Plus.

1. Bloodborne

The final entry on our list is Bloodborne. What is there to say about this phenomenal title that hasn't already been said? The depth of the world of Yharnam is enough to cover until the release of a proper sequel. This is a testament to not only the magnificent worldbuilding present in the game but also the longevity this title has had over the years. In Bloodborne, players find themselves in an unforgiving, unforgettable world where they must fight off many massive monstrosities to progress.

The game's bosses and combat have become legendary amongst the gaming community, and for good reason. Whether you are revisiting the game or experiencing it for the first time, there is no wrong time to get into the game. One of the game's most beloved aspects is the weapon variety the game offers, and rather than the slow, deliberate style of combat the Souls franchise is known for, Bloodborne speeds things up considerably. So, if you are looking to play one of the best RPGs on PlayStation Plus, give Bloodborne a try; you won't regret it.
