Microsoft’s Xbox Live Games With Gold for April are kind of a letdown, save for the classic shoot-em-up Hard Corps Uprising, loosely based around the Contra universe. But over in
PlayStation land, Sony has three big PlayStation Plus games debuting on April 6th that PS5 owners won’t want to miss!
Starting from the 6th until the next games debut sometime in May, players will be able to get their hands on an all-new Oddworld game, along with a Sony favorite and a surprise underground zombie-killing hit!
Let’s break down each of the games that are coming in a matter of days!
Abe, the hero from previous Oddworld games, makes his return in Soulstorm, Oddworld Inhabitants’ most gorgeous game to date. “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.”
That’s right, Days Gone is up for grabs and absolutely free to all PS Plus subscribers. “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 customize weapons and skills, craft traps and upgrade your bike as you try and survive the unforgiving wilderness.”
Zombie Army 4: Dead War
It’s a zombified world out there, and you’ve got to clean house! “Hitler’s hordes are back for more in this spine-chilling shooter from the makers of Sniper Elite 4. Abominable occult enemies, epic weapons and a harrowing new campaign for 1-4 players await in 1940s Europe, as you fight to save humankind from undead Armageddon. Continue the alternate history of Zombie Army Trilogy in huge new levels, and uncover a sinister plan that takes the Survivor Brigade across Italy and beyond.”
