Really good for PS4 owners if this is true.

Then again, Days Gone at sub 30fps with game freezes cause your bike was too fast sucked.

I'd strongly recommend anyway considering playing this on PS4 to just wait until they have a PS5 and can play it at 60fps. It was like a whole new unfrustrating experience for me.

Playing that game at 60FPS felt really good. I can't even lie about that.

I give SIE Bend Studios credit on Days Gone, I didn’t love the characters and they have their issues but the post apocalyptic Oregon felt bigger and better (it’s not but still) than most open world games today (Elder Scrolls, Horizon etc.) taking down an entire freak horde is the best thing ever

Ya, Days Gone would be bad for most of us. Great game though.

As Days Gone is already available via the PS Plus Collection I seriously doubt that would be one of the monthly games
It is for PS4 users that doesn't have access to PS Plus Collection without own a PS5.

Well at the same time people with PS5's will get one game less from the monthly offerings. Personally I liked when Sony was giving away multiplatform games for all platforms (like for instance for PS3, PS4 and Vita), without counting them as separate products.

Days gone is a really good game, but this is complete BS since the game is already in the ps+ collection-I already have it from that, because I got ps+

Yea but I believe it’s for the PS4 folks, which are quite a lot. We do get Soulstorm which is really nice.

I don't think it's true. The asterisk/superscript number is on the outside of the white/purple flag denoting PS4 or PS5 on the image provided by the linked website, and the announcement images on the PSBlog Germany have it on the inside of the flag. It's fake.

Boy the selfish bastards complaining about Days Gone being here need to stfu. Yes it is on the PS+ Collection for those of us with a PS5 but out of 40+ million PS Plus members how many have a PS5? Like 6-7 million that's it. 30+ million others are getting a game they didn't have. Some of you really need to look at things differently.

People upset at Days Gone because they have a PS5 is hilarious. What about the other 100 million PlayStation gamers?

These threads highlight the absurd differences between forum goers and people who just play games and don’t go online to talk about them.

Zombie Army has a performance mode at least on the Xbox One X last I read. 1080p 60fps or 4k30.

PS4 Pro could get 60 under boost mode(?) Not sure for the previous gen base models.

Windows Central

Recently, we came across information that confirmed Zombie Army 4 features two different modes on Xbox One X. There's a "Performance" option that lowers the resolution to around 1080p and renders the game at 60 frames per second (FPS). If you choose "Quality," the rendering resolution appears to be 4K, but the frame rate is limited to 30 FPS. Since Zombie Army 4 isn't a fast-paced game, it looks stunning on the Quality setting.

Will it become a trend, PS5 owners got the plus collection, now PS4 owners get them too on a monthly basis?

Terrible month. All they're doing is recycling games from around the ecosystem. This month is a major L as a ps5 owner

I have to agree, maybe because I already owned 9/10 games in the PS+ collection, so this stuff barely matters to me anyway.

A barely 2 year old first party exclusive and a brand new game in Soulstorm is not a bad month by any means.

Not at all, we get a really interesting game in a great series on day one in Oddworld Soulstorm, yes we already have Days Gone but we need to stop being selfish and realise tens of millions on PS4 likely haven't experienced this great game and the more eyes on it the better as it deserves it! Zombie Army 4 is also a really fun co-op title.

Not every month has to be full of blockbuster announcements, the real time for PS5 owners to get their rewards for being a day one customer starts from Returnal's release all the way through a 2021 that looks to be stacked full of great AAA and indie experiences. It was pretty clear in a post COVID world that Sony weren't going to fire on all cylinders every month, if you didn't expect a minor drought at somepoint this year, then more fool you.

Honestly, this is the first time in a LONG time that PS Plus actually feels like it did back with the PS3, when you were getting all sorts of retail games constantly.

Well, PS4 userbase is still active by a large margin. Of course will put something for them in PS+. To me is a solid month for PS5 owners. Oddworld was always great

Okay month for PS4 players. Not so much for PS5 players as Days Gone already in the PS+C.

I already own the first two. But Oddworld looks fun enough for free.

Don't sleep on Zombie Army. It's a lot of fun.

They´re giving Ps4 players a game they most likely don´t own and you´re getting a new release day 1 with the service and the game looks great.

Glad that PS4 owners get Days Gone.

PlayStation Plus has been really amazing recently.

Soulstrom seems like one of them games epic would steal from steam. Hope PaPa Sweeney breaks out the Fortnite bucks to grace us with a freebie too

No. Playing it at the moment and its a blast. Can even ad that Days Gones Motorcyckle is one of the best video game vehicles ever.

I thought this game was borderline incredible to be honest (a few corny lines apart) it really grabbed me where other Zombie games didn't.
