PlayStation Plus Free Games For April 2022 Revealed (VIDEO)
Long-acting as a counterpoint to Xbox’s Games With Gold program, PlayStation Plus is now preparing an upgrade to take on Microsoft’s hyper-successful subscription service Xbox Game Pass. While not an exact carbon copy, the platform largely merges Sony’s two main services, PS Now and PS Plus, into a single entity, with extra perks added along the way. Of course, as we wait for this big update, Plus members will soon have several new freebies to redeem for the month of April 2022.
Debuting on April 5th, PS4 and PS5 PlayStation Plus members will get access to Hood: Outlaws & Legends, a competitive co-op and dark medieval take on the Robin Hood mythos, and the mega-successful fantasy deck roguelike Slay The Spire. Of course, the arguable standout is SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, the classic fan-favorite platformer fully remade with updated visuals, voice acting, and all-new content.
A rundown of April’s PlayStation Plus selections can be viewed below.
