The full line-up for April’s PlayStation Plus free games has been revealed, with the previously announced Oddworld Soulstorm for PS5 coming alongside two PlayStation 4 games overflowing with zombies.
The three PS Plus games for April are:
All three games will be available from 6th April to 3rd May.
I’m sure there’s going to be a tiny little bit of disappointment in the line up, now that it’s been revealed. Oddworld Soulstorm looks great for PS5 owners, and Days Gone with its 60fps update is a great way to show what the PS5 can do, but it’s already given away to subscribers via the PlayStation Plus Collection. Just remember, there’s a lot more PS4 owners out there than PS5 owners.
Don’t sleep on Zombie Army 4: Dead War, by the way, it’s a lot of fun if you can get a good co-op group together to blast through some undead Nazis!

It’s PlayStation Plus day, or at least it should be if Sony stick to their normal schedule and before the new games are announced there is some housekeeping to do. The smash-tastic PlayStation 5 exclusive Destruction AllStars leaves PlayStation Plus on 6th April and from then on it will cost $19.99 / €19.99 for anyone that didn’t snag it for free, so make sure you grab it now.
We already know what one of the April PlayStation Plus games will be as it was announced back in February. The long awaited Oddworld: Soulstorm will debut on PlayStation 4 and 5 on April 6th, the say PlayStation Plus games go live, and the PS5 version will be part of that month’s PS Plus line-up.
Soulstorm is a remake of the second Oddworld game, following on from the New ‘n’ Tasty remake of the original. In it Abe finds himself the unwitting leader of a revolution, forced to lead the fight against the all-powerful Glukkons.The game’s side-scrolling platforming is given more depth than ever before with what Oddworld Inhabitants call ‘2.9D’ platforming, building the game world out into the third dimension to make the world more immersive.
On PlayStation 5, the game will use the DualSense controller to give you Abe’s heart beat in suspenseful and high-tension situations. Since there’s over 1000 Mudokons that you can try to save, and they can be used in a variety of ways to solve puzzles, provide energy, and even fight back alongside you, when given the right tools.
But wait, there are even more free games! From 19th April, Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition (including the base game and the Frozen Wilds DLC) will be given away for free as part of Sony’s Play At Home initiative.
Oddworld: Soulstorm and Horizon: Zero Dawn would make a very good line up of free games any month and there’s still a couple more games to be announced around 4.30pm today to go with them, so check back here at that time to find out what they are.
