The month is coming to an end and you know what that means: it’s time to get to know the PS Plus games April 2021. And after the fantastic month of March (we remember that games like Final Fantasy VII Remake or Remnant: From the Ashes), Sony is once again offering a large selection of games for subscribers to the online service.
In April 2021, if we have an active PS Plus subscription, we can free download Oddworld: Soulstorm for PS5 (the same day it goes on sale), as well as the games Days gone, Zombie Army 4: Dead War and Jade’s ascension for PlayStation 4. Not bad, right?
As usual, below we offer you a short summary of the PS Plus games of April 2021 so that you know what you can expect from each of them, as well as a review of the other benefits that members of the service.
Oddworld: Soulstorm (PS5)
Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants
Launching: April 6, 2021
Gender: Platforms / Puzzles
This should come as no surprise, as it was announced during the last State of Play, but that doesn’t make it any less remarkable: Oddworld: Soulstorm, the reimagining of Oddworld: Abe’s Exodus following in the wake (and history) of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty!, is one of the PS Plus games from April 2021. But the most remarkable thing is that its arrival coincides with the day it goes on sale, which means that PlayStation Plus users will be able to play free Oddworld: Soulstorm the day of its launch.
The only “but” is that what comes to PS Plus is the version of Oddworld: Soulstorm for PS5 and only for PS5. That is, if you are subscribers of the service but you do not have the next-gen console, you will not be able to enjoy Abe’s new game for free on PS4. But don’t worry, because that doesn’t mean that PS4 users are going to sit idly by …
Days Gone (PS4)
Developer: Bend Studio
Launching: Apr 26, 2019
Gender: Action / Survival / Open World
… Because The other big highlight of the April 2021 PS Plus games is Days gone, the open world survival zombie action game developed by Bend Studio (responsible for Siphon Filter) and released in 2019.
Days gone takes us to a post-apocalytic world where much of humanity has fallen victim to a disease that transforms people into monsters: bloodthirsty creatures with a behavior quite similar to that of zombies (infected, rather). We play the role of Deacon St. John, a tormenting biker who fights every day to survive both monsters … and unscrupulous humans trying to take advantage of the situation. And all this while trying to escape from his past.
This translates into a highly varied playable cocktail, mixed shooting, melee and stealth, with survival and driving. The bike is an extension of Deacon himself, as it is the method of movement through the huge open world and the best tool to escape from the terrifying hordes of monsters. But like a good survival game, you have to get parts to fix it every time you hit a “tap” and look for gas to keep it always moving.
In short, a highly recommended game that, in addition, has improved substantially since it was released (correcting many of the bugs that it initially presented, for example). If you do not know it or want to know more, we leave you our analysis of Days gone for PS4.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War (PS4)
Developer: Rebellion Developments
Launching: February 4, 2020
Gender: Action / Strategy
And if you have not had enough “brains” do not worry, because the PlayStation Plus games of April 2021 are left over. Another one of the games that subscribers will be able to download at no added cost en Zombie Army 4: Dead War, spin-off of the popular sniper saga Sniper Elite which, as its name makes quite clear, transforms enemies into zombies.
This time, Zombie Army 4: Dead War takes place in 1946, after the war, when Hitler has apparently been defeated. However, his troops rise from the grave to face us again.
So if you like zombie games, and especially zombie games where you can pop heads from meters away to watch a brain blast with satisfaction, you would do well to keep an eye on it. If you want to know more, we leave you our analysis of Zombie Army 4: Dead War.
Jade’s Ascension (PS4)
Developer: Potatoes with Mojo Games
Launching: November 4, 2020
Gender: Arcade / Cooperative
You already know that PS Plus games always include a PlayStation Talents title, the platform that drives development in our country, and in April 2021 it repeats the March game: Jade’s ascension, a cooperative (local) experience with arcade flavor that invites us to collaborate with three other players to defeat all the enemies Let them meet us, bosses included, with the aim of going up to the next floor. And all this with a charming aesthetic inspired by Chinese mythology.
