Xbox: Here’s our Games with Gold titles for April
Sony: Hold my controller
Xbox Game Pass might have the upper hand over PlayStation Now when it comes to subscription services, but when it comes to GwG vs PS Plus, there’s no contest.
This is a fantastic month for PlayStation Plus subscribers – a PS5 game, a well-received PS4 exclusive, and the excellent Zombie Army 4. Regardless of how you feel about the (frankly ridiculous) console wars, both sides have been bringing lots of value to their fans recently.
Oddworld: Soulstorm (PS5 only)
Oddworld’s Abe returns in this action adventure platformer set directly after the events of 2014’s Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty. Having undergone a transformation from clueless cog in a mega-corporate machine to unlikely hero and beacon of hope, Abe must now save his fellow Mudokons by any means necessary. As you recruit more followers, stick to stealth and puzzle solve to survive or scavenge goods and craft an arsenal to liberate your friends. In Oddworld: Soulstorm, you will begin to understand the power of many will be needed to solve problems that the individual alone cannot.
Days Gone (PS4, PS5 BC)
Ride into a desperate, dog-eat-dog open world of the Pacific Northwest as drifter and bounty hunter, Deacon St. John. Risk the threats of the broken road on the back of your trusty bike as you face swarms of mindless feral Freakers – and equally terrifying humans. Unpredictable weather and different times of day and night can cause incredible danger and shocking surprises… and everything wants you dead. Devise your strategies as you customise weapons and skills, craft traps and upgrade your bike as you try and survive the unforgiving wilderness.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War (PS4, PS5 BC)
We really enjoyed Zombie Army 4, giving it a very good 8.5/10 in our review:
“Zombie Army 4: Dead War has surprised me in so many ways. It looks amazing, production values are excellent, and the shooting mechanics are outstanding, but it also manages to remain fun tens of hours down the line, and the great progression system means you always have something to strive towards. Where the previous games were entertaining in small doses, this is a game I can envision myself coming back to again and again.”
All of these games will be available from 6th April 2021 for PlayStation gamers with an active PS Plus subscription.
