The April 2023 PlayStation Plus Essential games are now ready for you to download and play. Let’s start with the links for the UK Store:
Additionally there’s a load of free costume DLC for Sackboy which you can find on the PS Store.
Meet Your Maker is a day one release on PlayStation Plus and is this latest game from the Dead By Daylight developer, another asymmetrical, somewhat experimental multiplayer game.
All players can engage with two sides of Meet Your Maker, tasked on the one hand with building challenging mazes filled with traps, AI defenders and more, and then with invading the mazes of other players as a Raider, trying to defeat all the obstacles in front of you. In both cases – whether its successfully defending your own base or besting the challenge of another player’s, you’ll collect resources to further your own progression.
PlayStation Plus Collection is going away
Do not forget! The PlayStation Plus Collection of 19 great PS4 games is going away in May. Any PS5 owning PS Plus subscriber can grab the games until 9th May 2023, and if you do so in time, then you’ll continue to have access to them for as long as you’re a PS Plus subscriber. There’s some great games here, including The Last of UsRemastered, God of War, Until Dawn and Uncharted 4, so make sure to redeem them while you can!
What’s the deal with PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium?
The PlayStation Plus relaunch took place back in the middle of 2022, transforming the PS Plus we once knew into a three tiered subscription service that bundles in and expands what was once PlayStation Now. The classic PS Plus is now called PS Plus Essential, giving access to online multiplayer gaming, cloud save backups, exclusive offers and at least 2 free monthly games. PS Plus Extra then adds a catalogue of PS4 and PS5 games into the mix, while PS Plus Deluxe and Premium (depending on your region) adds older PS2, PS1 and PSP game emulation, and game streaming for PS3 and other titles.
