This months offerings, like last months, still a bit underwhelming...
Sony have announced the free games coming to PlayStation Plus members in April 2017 and the results are… well… more of the same.
Beginning April 4th, 2017, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to download Drawn to Death and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. Thanks to the crossbuy feature, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita owners will both receive 10 Second Ninja and Curses ‘n Chaos. And finally, PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom and Alien Rage.
The highlight of the month is the brand new Drawn to Death from industry legend David Jaffe. Drawn To Death is described as a shooter that “challenges the genre with unconventional gameplay mechanics that bring this third-person shooter/brawler to life. The game takes place entirely inside the pages of a high school kid’s notebook where hand-drawn characters and levels come to life.” You can see this and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime in the video reveal below.
If you did not grab the excellent couch co-op title Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime through Xbox a few months ago, or wish to play with your PlayStation buddies now’s your chance. In this game you “pilot a neon battleship through a colorful galaxy by yourself or with up to three others. Through teamwork, triumph over the evil forces of Anti-Love, rescue kidnapped space-bunnies, and avoid a vacuumy demise.” According to Sony, “you can also play this game online with others through PS4’s Share Play feature.”
That’s 4 games for PlayStation 4 owners, thanks to both Vita games being cross-buy, with 2 games each for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita owners.
- Drawn To Death, PS4
- Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, PS4
- Invizimals: the Lost Kingdom, PS3
- Alien Rage – Extended Edition, PS3
- 10 Second Ninja, PS Vita (crossbuy with PS4)
- Curses ‘n Chaos, PS Vita (crossbuy on PS4)
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about free games. These freebies are always a bonus. I’d just like to see Sony put as much effort into PS+ games as Microsoft does with its freebies on Games with Gold. What are your thoughts? Do you want to see Sony make more of an effort to throw it’s fans a bone? Let us know in the comments.
