Games coming to the PlayStation 4 this year 2022
It’s surprising that publishers are still releasing their games to the PlayStation 4 even if it isn’t a current-gen console. The list below has something for every kind of gamer. From horror games to indie games, we can expect many new games to come to the PlayStation 4 before the year ends.

You’ll be playing as Travis Touchdown as he returns to the city of Santa Destroy. Here, you’ll need to save the world from an alien invasion led by aliens who think they’re the superheroes in this one. Sounds like FU and the other aliens are the Supes in The Boys, no?
