Free Games Of PlayStation Plus April 2015 Revealed

Not the best month for the service, but there are definitely some sweet games for everyone to check out.

Sony has revealed the free games that gamers will be able to download next month as part of the company’s PlayStation Plus service. As always, everyone will be able to download several free games that span the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, ranging from big hits to indie titles.

The selection this month isn’t quite as strong as previous months for the service, but there are definitely some games here that I will be checking out. Check out the list below:

  • Tower of Guns (PS4/PS3)
  • Never Alone (PS4)
  • Dishonored (PS3)
  • Aaru’s Awakening (PS4/PS3)
  • Killzone Mercenary (PS Vita)
  • MonsterBag (PS Vita)

Dishonored was previously available as a free game via Xbox’s Games With Gold service, though it’s still cool to see that PlayStation-exclusive gamers will be getting it for free, as well. The game was critically-acclaimed when it released a few years ago, though I admittedly missed the boat when it launched.

The PlayStation Vita seems to be the winner of the batch here, as Killzone Mercenary was a very well-received game that undoubtedly plenty of people haven’t tried yet due to the system’s relatively small install base. The system has failed to deliver big name titles like that lately, so playing it will be a welcomed change of pace.

The PlayStation 4’s list of free games is definitely the most tame, though Never Alone is an indie game that caught my eye a few months ago and I have been interested in checking it out since then. It’s a 2D puzzle platformer that is set in the arctic that looks pretty unique, though the reviews for it were pretty mixed when it launched last year. Ah well, I guess I’ll just have to make my own opinion when I try it out!
