Recommended Games to Buy with a PlayStation Gift Card In 2020

Did you get a PlayStation gift card and are unsure of which games to buy? There are a lot of great games that you’ll be able to buy in 2020, and many of these games can be purchased in 2019.

And if you buy a PlayStation gift card online, it’s even easier getting started with playing your next major title.

Top 7 Games to Buy with a PlayStation Gift Card

cyberpunk 2077

1. Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is developed by the same company that brought the world The Witcher series. CD Projekt Red is set to release the game on April 15, 2020, but you can pre-order the game if you buy a PlayStation gift card today.

Set in an open-world environment in Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 is a futuristic, action-adventure game in which you’ll play as V (male and female versions exist).

You’re a mercenary outlaw that has one main goal: go after an implant that is the key to immortality. Keanu Reeves is also featured in the game, so you know it’s going to be a blockbuster hit.

When you enter the game, you’ll be able to customize everything, including:

You explore the city, make choices, and every choice you make will shape the world around you. You are part of a mission that is the riskiest in the world. The game is not appropriate for all ages, so it may not be a game for younger kids to play.

Fast gunplay and interesting enemies will keep players engaged, but there are few detailed trailers available.

Vehicle controls are tight, you’re a killing machine, and the choice-base dialogue system really involves you in the gameplay. V is super powerful, and being set in the future, you’re able to hack into things, such as Animals.

Cyberpunk is set in the future, but the developers have done well to also advance gameplay and controls like never before. The game looks promising, and it’s on everyone’s top list for games slated for a 2020 release.

final fantasy 7 remake

2. Final Fantasy VII Remake

You’ve read all of the things that you could do if you have a PS gift card, but did any of the tips you read mention Final Fantasy VII? Final Fantasy VII captures the essence of the original game, but the game plays noting like the original.

That’s because it’s not truly a remake.

The new remake is huge, and as you climb down ladders and destroy machines along the way, you’ll feel a sense of nostalgia. There’s a hybrid Active Time Battle system which is fluid and allows you to take full control of Cloud as you slice and dice your way to victory.

Changes have been implemented into the game, and this allows for faster, more fluid gameplay.

E3 2019 featured the game, and Midgar has been completely reimagined.

Sector 1 Reactor and Shinra Headquarters have both been expanded, allowing you to explore the world like never before. Real-time and turn-based combat make the game fun as you revisit some old friends:

Voice acting has been added to many characters to give them life. Multiple chapters will take you through the game, and there’s also a run-through of the new combat system to help returning players grasp the new system.

Parties can consist of three characters, that we know of from trailers.

Square Enix has taken advantage of this remake like no other developer has been able to offer. The game is a lot of the same, but there has been a touch of modern technology put into the game that allows it to be more fluid and, in many ways, better than the original.

dying light 2

3. Dying Light 2

Dying Light 2 was presented at E3 2019, and gamers are dying to get a little more from this zombie adventure. The game is a bit different as you bash zombies, but there’s also parkour built into the game. This means that you’re able to scale buildings and use the environment to your advantage.

There’s a DLC that allows you to explore the countryside, too.

Did I mention that you’ll be able to smash through zombies? Plot specifics have not been revealed, but we do know that there are narrative choices. You’ll find that there’s been a group of NPCs that have taken over the world’s water supply, and the future of the world looks grim.

The map is four times bigger, so fans coming back to the game will be able to enjoy a lot of great new content.

The entire world is driven by player choices, so your actions will have an impact on the world around you. What really makes Dying Light 2 so remarkable is the gameplay and combat. Parkour allows you to be truly creative in your choices, so combat is never dull or boring.

Crafting has been expanded, and you can apply upward of 50 new combos to your weapons, too.

Drugs give you added powers, and you’ll find an array of new, brutal tools that you can use to torture people along the way. Day and night cycles come back in the game, and just when you think it’s safe to roam around at night, you’ll find that zombies have clustered together, shoulder-to-shoulder, to bust out of buildings.

The game is set to be released in 2020.

watch dogs legion

4. Watch Dogs: Legion

Watch Dogs: Legion is coming out on March 6, 2020, and the action-adventure game is the third installment of the Watch Dogs series. If you played Watch Dogs 2, Legion allows you to play as 9+ million different characters.

The game is set in a world after Scotland has left the United Kingdom, so you’ll have a lot to explore as you try to take back the world you love.
Recruit and play as anyone that you see in the city, and take back London. Play solo or invite friends to come along for the party.

If you preorder, you can enjoy a slew of bonuses.

What’s neat about this game is that there’s no single protagonist. Instead, you’ll be playing as any NPC in the world. It’s a game that really puts the power in the hands of the player. DedSec agents can pick from among three main classes: Enforcer, Infiltrator and Hacker.

Recruit a citizen, assign them a class and then search for the extra perks of each citizen.

Classes are virtually the same from one recruit to the next, but each NPC has its own extra perks and physical attributes, too. However, you have to be careful with the players you put into battle. Death is permanent, so the characters will never come back.

Emotional attachment is very real thanks to permadeath, but you do have the option to choose to be arrested the first time you die rather than die.

Multiplayer gameplay will return, so the game can be enjoyed by you and all of your friends. Watch Dogs brings a slew of great weapons, fun gameplay and more to the hands of players.

minecraft dungeons

5. Minecraft: Dungeons

Minecraft is back and better than ever with Dungeons. The game is set to be released in the second quarter of 2020, and it can be played solo or with up to four players online. The action role-playing game is not what you would expect from Minecraft.

It’s completely different, although the boxy characters still exist.

Dungeons has no:

[list style=’regular’]
[list_item]Destroying blocks[/list_item]

Instead, the game is a dungeon crawler that will allow you to explore dungeons that have been randomly generated. Everything is random in the dungeons, including:

[list style=’regular’]

And there are no class systems in place. You can use the armor and weapon of your choosing. What’s nice about Dungeons is that it’s not an intensive game where you need to fill the role of healer, tank or DPS. You’re not going into the game all amped up and expected to gear up and play all night long.

It’s a laid-back game that you can jump on and play, and then get off without everyone getting mad in the process.

Minecraft brings all the fun of dungeons to the mainstream without being tied to a guild or group of hardcore players that tend to take the adventure and fun away from dungeons.

Dungeons is inspired by Diablo, so it’s a family-fun game that truly advances on Diablo and is more fun in the process.

marvel avengers

6. Marvel’s Avengers

Marvel’s Avengers is coming out on May 15, 2020, and it’s a reason for all Marvel fans to be happy. The game is going to be published by Square Enix, and you’ll be able to play with a large roster of characters.

All of the main Avengers characters are available for play, including:

[list style=’regular’]
[list_item]Iron Man[/list_item]
[list_item]Black Widow[/list_item]

[list_item]Captain America[/list_item]

Supervillains are the game’s main threat and include Abomination and Taskmaster.
The game starts at A-Day as the team unveils new hi-tech equipment, such as their own helicarrier. An accident turns into massive devastation, and there are rumors swirling that Captain America has died.

The Avengers disband, and you’re thrust five years into the future where all of the world’s superheroes are outlawed. The world is in peril, and the only hope of a savior is for the world’s strongest heroes to reunite.

The game has a truly original story that no one has ever read or heard of before. Marvel’s Avengers is said to be a game that players will be able to play for years to come. DLCs will make this a reality, so gamers will definitely get their money’s worth.

Continuous gameplay, customizable heroes and co-op gameplay keep players engaged.

vampires the masquerade bloodlines 2

7. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
Release of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is expected some time in March 2020, but no one knows for sure. The developer has yet to provide a definite release date for the title. The game is filled with vampire lore, and the gameplay looks impressive.

The game takes place in Seattle at a time when the vampire world has been fragmented.

There are several factions of vampires that are all trying to take power, so you’re thrust into a world of conflict and power. Some groups are taking humans and turning them into vampires by force.

And no one in the vampire world accepts these forced turns. It’s against the rules, and clan leaders are the only ones that can give their approval to turn a human.
Camarilla’s power isn’t what it once was, and Princes and Primogens have all lost their power. Many cities are without these leaders, so vampire clans are all trying to takeover these cities and make them their own.

According to the developers, players will have the opportunity to meet the blood founders in many cities.

The game’s main campaign will span 25 to 30 hours, and the game is not exclusive to any one store. Your gameplay will dictate how fast you get through the campaign, and if you follow just the main questline, you’ll have just about five hours of gameplay available.

Character creation has been advanced, so you’ll be able to enjoy much more advanced character creation than in the past. Unlike the original game, you’ll be able to personalize your character to bring more emotions to the outcome of the game.

Paradox has not given the exact number of clans that you’ll be able to play, but we do know that there are five playable clans that have been announced. The five clans that we know are playable for certain are:

[list style=’regular’]



You may be able to play additional clans, but these are the five that have been confirmed. If you’re into vampires and lore, this is one game that you do not want to miss.

If you’re still wondering whether you should buy a PlayStation gift card, there are thousands of other games that are at your fingertips. These seven games are just the starting point, but you can expect many of them to win awards this coming year.
