The relaxed game is reminiscent of titles like the PlayStation favorite for a reason “journey” – former developers of Thatgamecompany worked on Abzû.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Playing time about 3-4 hours: We have already recommended this small but particularly fine game to you in our list of the best co-op games – you actually play the idiosyncratic title completely alone. But you shouldn’t reveal too much about Brothers. You embark on an emotional journey with two brothers, the highlight of the whole thing: you both have to control the eponymous brothers at the same time.

PS Plus: The best free games at Extra for a stress-free gaming weekend

These games on PS Plus Extra are perfect for a relaxing gaming weekend: If you have a whole weekend to spare but don’t want to be stuck in front of the screen all the time, games with a playing time of 6 to 10 hours are best. Fortunately, PS Plus Extra also offers true top titles for this.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War – Playing time about 6-8 hours: This pearl is not only one of the most stylish and beautiful games of its generation, but also a history lesson that doesn’t grow out of your ears like weeds after two minutes. As Emile, Karl, Freddie and Anna, you go into the First World War in this adventure and, despite the tame 2D look, you find out what the consequences are.

celeste – Playing time about 6-10 hours: Celeste is no longer an insider tip in the gaming community. In the demanding pixel platformer, you have to use precision and skill to get to the top of Celeste Mountain. When climbing, however, you should be prepared for a few deaths. Celeste is perhaps closest to taking the same line as “Super Meat Boy”, only with an additional compelling story. An absolute must-play for gamers who love a humane challenge.

Tearaway Unfolded Playing time about 6-8 hours: Tearaway was originally released for the PS Vita and was intended to spotlight the special abilities of the handheld console. Sony later thought it would be a shame for the much acclaimed title to only be available for the little-distributed PS Vita and re-released it for the PlayStation as Tearaway Unfolded. For the version, the likeable platformer was even tweaked here and there. Anyone who likes cute jump’n’runs will feel at home at Tearaway.

soma – Playing time about 8-10 hours: At Soma it’s more hearty. Soma is a horror sci-fi game from the creators of Amnesia and accordingly leaves no eye dry. If you want to get really scared in a research station at the bottom of the sea, you can’t avoid Soma. But if you’re looking for a horror actioner, you’ve come to the wrong place – Soma relies more on puzzles than shooting. In return, you get one of the most profound stories in gaming in recent years.

But of course everything goes wrong – so you make decisions, react to quick-time events and try to survive until the saving dawn.
