One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The free games being offered to PlayStation Plus members for April 2019 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below.
Two new titles join the PlayStation Plus monthly games lineup on April 2, each distinct but offering their own unique spin on what it means to survive. Letâ€™s dive in and take a closer look.
Drawing inspiration from the classic barbarian tales, survival open world survival game Conan Exiles winds back the clock to the very dawn of civilization, casting you as a forgotten exile abandoned alone in the desert for crimes unknown.
Starting out with nothing but a loincloth and your own two hands, youâ€™ll have to explore this vast, hostile world, gathering materials, crafting tools and carving out a new life for yourself in a world filled with danger.
Exploring a shared online space, youâ€™ll have the chance to meet with other players, build settlements and bases together, and even raise your own armed fortresses as you advance your mission to dominate this brave new world.
From the creators of brutal medieval action-adventure Lords of the Fallen comes a challenging sci-fi spin on the hardcore RPG genre.
Take on the role of new staff member Warren who, following a trying first day on the job, awakens to the aftermath of an unknown cataclysm to find his new workplace devastated and its ruins overrun by out-of-control machines.
Explore the twisting maze-like environment of the CREO research facility, fending off haywire tech, scavenging new parts and weapons, rescuing survivors and unlocking the secrets of this vast, abandoned facility.
Both titles will be available to download from PlayStation Store on April 2.
In the meantime, you still have a few days left to pick up Marchâ€™s two PlayStation Plus titles. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a great chance to revisit one of the grand-daddies of the FPS genre, while The Witness is a mesmerizing slow-burn of gradual discovery and smart puzzle design.
If you havenâ€™t tried them, thereâ€™s time yet: both will be available to download for PS Plus members until April 1 (no foolinâ€™!).
Let us know how you get on with March and Aprilâ€™s titles and weâ€™ll see you again next month.
