The new generation of gaming is upon us. Some people marked our entry into the new console generation with the release of Nintendo’s Wii U, although others preferred to consider the Wii U a part of the previous generation, placing it with the Xbox 360 and PS3 because of its power and capabilities. As of November 2013, however, with the launch of both Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, we are undeniably in the next generation.
Both systems launched with numerous games meant to draw in customers, and more games are added to their lineups with each passing day. If you have some PS4 and Xbox One games, or if you’re planning on getting some, you might find yourself in need of assistance from time to time. Well, never fear-cheats, hints, guides, and much, much more are at your disposal.
What sorts of PS4 and Xbox One cheats can you expect to find? There are many varieties, and it often depends on which sort of game you’re interested in. Consider Just Dance 2014, for example. There are, as of now, no cheats available for it-although you can still look up its list of trophies and achievements. The same is true of Fighter Within. Now, trophy and achievement lists are still very useful to some players, even if they are not considered “cheats,” as such.
In fact, many games include hints and strategies related specifically to trophies and achievements. If you’re struggling with some difficult challenges in Contrast or Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag, take a look at some quick trophy/achievement guides to help you along your way.
There are many, many more types of cheats besides these. You can read about every single Super Move in Injustice: Gods Among us, or learn all of the things you need to do to unlock Vampire Knack for a second playthrough of the PS4 exclusive platformer/beat ’em up. Step into the shoes of an Ancient Roman hero and make sure you don’t miss a single collectible-be it a scroll, chronicle, or vista-in Ryse: Son of Rome. Even heroes need help sometimes.
Then there are the cheat codes, which vary as wildly as the types of cheats themselves. In NBA 2K14, for example, you can enter the correct combination of buttons and directional commands to unlock a special basketball. The same concept takes on a much larger scope in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, where the codes you enter unlock new vehicles, characters, and effects.
This is not to say that each game only has a single time of cheat. In addition to the trophy/achievement guides mentioned earlier, Assassin’s Creed IV has unlockables, hints, glitches, and more. Dead Rising 3 has numerous guides and hints for you to look through and make the most out of your struggle against the zombie hordes. Once you finish picking up tips on how to get a particular trophy in Contrast, take a look at some of the other information about it-it even has an Easter egg, a little shout-out or reference to something else.
So whether you’re looking for lists of achievements/trophies, hints, unlockables, guides, codes, Easter eggs, or any of other various types, there are dozens of cheats for PS4 and Xbox One games, are more are coming all the time.
