It's here! PS Plus has announced the April 2021 free game lineup for PS4 and PS5!
March 2021 PS Plus knocked it out of the ballpark by including the recently released Final Fantasy VII Remake! Fans went ecstatic for getting the AAA title released just a year ago for free in March Monthly Games from Playstation Plus. Meanwhile, Xbox fans were disappointed with less than stellar titles such as the hilariously named, Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse.
Other March 2021 Playstation Plus titles included Farpoint, Maquette, and Remnant: From the Ashes. Maquette is an interesting puzzle game that received a 7/10 by IGN, and Remnant is pretty solid with an 8/10 rating.
With such a stellar lineup in March, it’s hard to imagine PS Plus will be outdoing itself in April. Will April 2021 bring us even more impressive PlayStation Plus titles? Read on to find out!
The PS Plus April 2021 Free game lineup is Oddworld: Soulstorm, Days Gone, and Zombie Army: Dead War 4 as confirmed by the official PlayStation Blog. All games mentioned will be playable starting April 6.
PS4 Free Game PS Plus April 2021: Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War
Overall, April is not quite as impressive as March. Oddworld is unrated by IGN, Zombie Army 4 got a somewhat acceptable 7 out of 10, and Days Gone received a mediocre 6.5 rating,
They are certainly playable titles, but nothing to write home about.
UPDATE: 12:00PM US EST, March 31. PS PLUS HAS ANNOUNCED THE NEW FREE GAMES
April’s games will officially be announced on March 31st and released on April 6th according to the PlayStation plus Reddit feed. Typically, the PS Plus announcement is revealed a week in advance.
In February, Sony revealed the lineup on their official blog on February 26, two days before March began.
UPDATE: Civilization VI was not included in the April 2021 PS Plus lineup, so this rumor has been dubunked. Perhaps it will be included in May's lineup?
It has already been confirmed that Oddworld: Soulstorm will be available for free to PlayStation 5 gamers with their PS Plus subscription.
It was rumored on Reddit based on PS Plus leaks that Civilization VI will be an April PS Plus Title since it appeared as a PS Plus free game on the Japanese PlayStation store for a brief period of time. Perhaps a staff member was a bit too trigger-happy?
Rumor: Civilization 6 may be an April PS+ Title (showing in Japan and unavailable to purchase elsewhere) from r/PS5
I for one would be incredibly excited to see Civilization VI as a freebie! While it is hard to say anything can top March titles with the FF7 Remake, Civilization VI would be close in my mind.
Fan’s have high expectations following last month's reveal. So far, leading predictions for April include:
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
- Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
- Mass Effect Andromeda
- Nier: Automata
- Spyro Reignited.
Given the Civilization VI leak, we would weigh the likelihood of its inclusion higher than any fan predictions listed here.
