After receiving 4 games as a part of PlayStation Plus last month, this month we’re back down to 3 titles, but 3 excellent titles nonetheless! From April 6th, players will be able to pick up survival game Days Gone as well as third-person shooter, Zombie Army 4: Dead War. PlayStation 5 players will also be able to pick up the highly anticipated Oddworld: Soulstorm at no extra cost!
Oddworld: Soulstorm (PS5)
Oddworld: Soulstorm is a platformer game, exclusive to PlayStation and Windows and releases globally April 6th, as a part of April’s PlayStation Plus free games. Oddworld: Soulstorm is a continuation of the 2014 game, Oddworld: New ‘n Tasty! and a re-imagining of the 1998 PlayStation 1 game, Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. The trailer looks amazing and looks like a really fun and intuitive platform puzzler – I can understand why there has been so much anticipation for its release!
Days Gone (PS4)
Day Gone is an action-adventure survival horror game, set in post-apocalyptic Oregon, two years after the start of a global pandemic. Players assume control of drifter and bounty hunter Deacon St John and navigate across an unpredictable and unforgiving wilderness on his trusty motorbike. Days Gone is one of the better zombie survival games of recent years and its single-player story creates features some truly memorable zombie firefights.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War (PS4)
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is a third-person shooter video game, set in 1946, one year after Adolf Hitler was defeated and banished to hell. The game is a sequel to the 2015 compilation game, Zombie Army Trilogy, which is actually a spin-off to the Sniper Elite series. The game looks like good fun and borrows some of those stunning slow-motion headshot mechanics from the Sniper Elite games!
Overall, it’s a good selection of games this month! I’ve played Days Gone in the past and really enjoyed the gameplay and open-world aspect of the game, so I would definitely recommend giving it a download. I’m looking forward to giving Oddworld: Soulstorm a play, I’ve not played any of the games in the series before, but I’m looking forward to giving it a go and understanding why the Oddworld series has such a huge fanbase. My only complaint about this month’s PS Plus games is the lack of a PS VR game which we’ve seen as a part of recent PS Plus monthly games, but I suppose the quality selection of games here makes up for it!
All of these games are available to download for PlayStation Plus members until May 3, 2021.
