While there aren’t too many new games being released for the PS4 as we move closer to the PS5 release, Sony’s most downloaded games of September show some old favorites going strong. Although Rocket League only switched to a free-to-play model on September 23, it quickly rocketed to number one for the month.
As far as paid downloads, NBA 2K21 dominated the US PlayStation Store in September, joined by Marvel’s Avengers, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, Madden 21, and Fall Guys. You can also check out the stats for the EU market here, which are slightly different.
However the free-to-play ranking is where it gets interesting–Rocket League sits at the top of the list, over newcomers Spellbreak and Genshin Impact, after only one week of being free. With Rocket League’s Endo Starter Pack sitting in the top ten DLC purchases for the week, it looks like going free-to-play may have paid off for the quirky sports game.
In PS VR games, Vader Immortal was going strong for its first full month of release, after coming out on PlayStation on August 25. The Star Wars VR game occupied the top spot, followed by the Star Wars-inspired rhythm game Beat Saber.
With the PS5 launching on November 12 it’s an awkward period for new releases–with new games like NBA 2K21 also coming to next-gen consoles. Some games, like Cyberpunk 2077, are offering a free upgrade to next gen for players who purchase the game on the PS4 or Xbox One.
