This game, and its predecessors, allowed players to tackle missions in a variety of ways, from blowing up soldiers to the kingdom or putting them to sleep with a tranquilizer dart. Ghost of Tsushima and the new Hitman trilogy also comes to mind as one of the best stealth games. However, what about the underdogs of the stealth genre on PS4?

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 A Plague Tale: Innocence

A Plague Tale: Innocence takes place in war-torn Europe as England was fighting France. Players take on the role of a teenage girl, Amicia de Rune, and her brother, Hugo, who are desperately trying to flee from the men who would repress them in occupied France. England is not the only problem, as there is also a plague of sick rats. It tries to be as historically accurate as possible and sometimes go off the rails to create a memorable experience. Players are rarely able to engage in combat and are instead tasked with sneaking past guards in various ways, making this one of the more challenging stealth games on the list.

7 Assassin’s Creed Unity

Assassin’s Creed Unity He didn’t have a good pitch. It was supposed to be the first big new entry in the series back in 2014, next-gen only, while older consoles got Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The latter of the two was the superior experience at launch, offering more of what fans had come to love in black flag: navigation.

as buggy as Unit It was, it got better with time. Unfortunately, not many players made it back to France after receiving countless glitches that may have even wiped their progress. It’s one of those games that could do just fine with a new port for PS5 and Xbox Series X, hopefully without launch issues.

6 Battlefield hard line

Battlefield hard line could be played like the other entries in this series, aka guns shooting wildly at enemies. However, players can also try to be good cops and stealthily arrest criminals.

It might be the only stealth game that allows players to handcuff their enemies like they’re taking them down with a knife. It may not have received universal praise from fans, but at least it was trying something new. A sequel could have strengthened those mechanics and maybe one day EA will try.

5 death stranding

death stranding He has a very divided opinion about it. The game was mostly reviewed with positive scores, but those who didn’t review it well really let others know. At its core, it could be described as a walking simulator set in an open world without much in it. That emptiness, in addition to the clunky mechanics, are two things that bothered some. It wasn’t a game perfectly executed by the weird mind of Hideo Kojima.

Is not metal gear experience, that’s for sure, but the stealth gameplay was helpful and there were plenty of memorable moments in the story that will make it hard to forget on both good and bad levels.

4 Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was not as innovative as human revolution it was on last-gen consoles. This sequel was more of the same, which wasn’t a bad thing. Everything was technically better, from the game options to the graphics.

Nothing about it made it seem remarkable, like it didn’t have much of a soul, which may be why it has never received a sequel beyond this. Despite the lack of hype, it’s one of the best stealth games on the PS4, whether fans choose to believe it or not.

3 Murdered: suspicious soul

Murdered: suspicious soul it’s a wild ride that can sometimes have players wondering if Hideo Kojima or Swery had a hand in its creation. Players play a detective, Ronan O’Connor, who was unceremoniously shot and killed while working on a case. He wakes up as a ghost and vows to find out who killed him and others with similar deaths.

That part is a bit cliche, but then there are the hooded ghouls that look like dementors from Harry Potter trying to suck your soul. That’s where the stealth game comes in. Mechanically, it’s a clumsy adventure game and the story isn’t all that great either. Still, he’s unique, the players have to give him that.

two shadow of the tomb raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider was the final entry in this reboot trilogy that began in 2013 with the younger version of Lara Croft. That reboot has received almost universal praise over time. The sequel, The Rise of the Tomb Raiderwas also well received but suffered the same fate as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

It was good but it didn’t raise the playing field. Then, in this third inning, fatigue was fully installed. The game was also rougher when it came to graphics. What was undeniably cool was the new stealth mechanics, like being able to cover yourself in mud and then pop out and attack an enemy from behind.

1 Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint was the sequel to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. The first game had a troubled launch with a few glitches, but eventually found a dedicated audience that stuck with it and had a lot of fun ganging up on co-op missions.

This sequel had an even worse launch, sometimes looking like a beta version. Online connectivity wasn’t great, the story was bland, the graphics were close to PS3 or worse in quality, and the list goes on. It didn’t have the same sticking power as the original, possibly due to how bad the launch was. Beyond the glitches and ugly textures, there was a great world to explore solo stealthily or chaotically with a group of friends.
