PS Plus April 2022 FREE PS4 & PS5 Games Reveal Time, Leak Lineup, Premium Tier, Extra | Games | Entertainment
UPDATE: Sony has officially announced its new PS Plus subscription tiers. While the standard PS Plus subscription remains intact with all the same benefits, fans will now be able to upgrade to two additional tiers. PlayStation Plus Extra combines standard PS Plus and PS NOW, while Premium offers an additional 340 PlayStation games from Sony’s back catalog. As for the April 2022 free PS4 and PS5 games, Sony is still expected to reveal the lineup on March 30 at 4:30 p.m. GMT.
ORIGINAL: Sony is set to announce the PlayStation Plus free PS4 and PS5 games for April 2022. The official PS Plus reveal will take place at 4:30 p.m. GMT on March 30. However, with rumors that Sony is set to unveil its new Project Spartacus subscription service, there’s a chance that Sony will hold some sort of special announcement event. Similar to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Project Spartacus would combine PS Plus with Sony’s PS Now game streaming service. Express Online will keep this PlayStation Plus hub page up to date with all the latest developments, so check back regularly for news.
While the official PlayStation Plus reveal is set to take place on March 30, it looks like free PS4 and PS5 games may have leaked early.
According to a leaked image, April’s PS Plus giveaways will include Hood: Outlaws and Legends, Slay the Spire, and SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom.
If rumors are to be believed, this isn’t the strongest PlayStation Plus lineup in recent memory.
Hood: Outlaws and Legends and SpongeBob both have an average Metacritic score of just 68%.
Slay the Spire, however, is a much more enticing prospect, earning an average rating of 88%.
The incredibly addictive card-based battle game tasks players with building decks, unlocking perks, and slaying a series of increasingly difficult enemies.
“We fused card games and roguelikes to create the best single-player deck builder possible,” reads the official description.
“Create a unique deck, encounter bizarre creatures, discover relics of immense power, and slay the arrow!
“Each time you embark on a journey to the Spire, the layout differs each time. Choose a risky or safe path, face different enemies, choose different maps, discover different relics, and even fight different bosses!”
If Sony announces Project Spartucus (or PlayStation Plus NEO), free games will be available on Gold and Platinum tiers.
Other perks would include free game demos, exclusive discounts, game streaming, and access to select PlayStation games.
