If you dont own the game, Days Gone will pleasantly surprise you. After the rough release, it's been patched into a great game. Maybe the 2nd chance buzz will give Sony a headache to greenlit a sequel. I'd love a Syphon Filter myself, but I'd rather a Days Gone 2 than a new IP.

Can't wait for Abe. Zombie army looks a bit tasty too. Own one, and intrigued by the other two. Great month.

This proves how fucking stupid limiting that batch of "free" "incentive" games to PS5 was, although it gives them fodder to met out again on PS Plus.

It's fucked up again that PS4 isn't getting that Oddworld game, just because we're not in the richie rich club. Nobody on PS4 is going to buy that game otherwise.

Considering they will announce DG2 soon enough, makes perfect sense to bundle the first one on PS+.

But as a ps+ member you're still getting Oddworld.... Just pick it up now and the game will be waiting for you when/if you get the ps5

It’s true, it’s on the Blog.

Maybe it's an April Fool's joke by Sony?
"Hey PS5 owners here grab a game that you all already own HAHAHAHA!"

It's for Ps4 owners , you know the 100 million ones that dont already own the game cause they cant get a hold of a ps5 yet? You dont miss out. The pattern has been 2 ps4 games and a ps5 a month. We're getting Oddworld Soulstorm still.

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

Sawmill Horde is something else. Esp on PS5 where it seemingly never drops at all.

Will give Zombie Army 4 a try since some friends will also be playing it. ZAT was okay, but got old fast.

Ps Plus Collection game gets a different release.

From this, I am taking it that a Bloodborne remake is definitely happening.

Sony also gave Ratchet for everyone and the game is on the Collection. I didn't see people complaining about it. If you tell me Plus Collection should've been available to PS4 too I would agree, but it is a clear bonus to anyone who got the ps5.

Anyway, it is clear Sony is trying harder this year with the monthly games and we even are getting free games via Play at Home.

Looking forward to soulstorm zombie army sounds like it might be fun as well. Days gone is fucking cool if you haven’t played it. I was thinking today bends next game should be a socom days gone crossover.

April's PlayStation Plus lineup.

Source (info provided by billbil-kun and verified by MyDealz)



Days Gone (PS4)
Ride and fight into a deadly, post pandemic America.

Do you have the skill – and nerve – to survive the horrors of a broken world in this massive open-world action adventure?

Step into the dirt flecked shoes of former outlaw biker Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter trying to find a reason to live in a land surrounded by death. Scavenge through abandoned settlements for equipment to craft valuable items and weapons, or take your chances with other survivors trying to eke out a living through fair trade… or more violent means.

With humanity devastated by a global pandemic and ravaged by feral creatures known as Freakers, any mistake could be your last in your attempt to carve out a new life in the hostile Pacific Northwest high-desert.



Zombie Army 4: Dead War (PS4)
Hitler’s hordes are back for more in this spine-chilling shooter from the makers of Sniper Elite 4! Abominable occult enemies, epic weapons and a harrowing new campaign for 1-4 players await in 1940s Europe, as you fight to save humankind from undead Armageddon!

The resistance have defeated Zombie Hitler and cast him into Hell – but the dead rise once again with greater hunger than before! Continue the alternate history of Zombie Army Trilogy in huge new levels, and uncover a sinister plan that takes the Survivor Brigade across Italy and beyond!

Experience genre-defining ballistics, build the slayer that suits you and harness the power of fire, lightning and divine escence as you upgrade your guns to fight back against the dead. When the horde surrounds you, tear them apart with enhanced melee combat and flesh-rending takedown moves!



Oddworld: Soulstorm (PS5)
In Oddworld: Soulstorm, you reprise the role of Abe the Mudokon, accidental hero turned leader of a growing revolution. We first met Abe in the first game of the quintology, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. Abe is a floor-waxer at Mullock the Glukkon’s RuptureFarms meat packing plant. He accidentally learns about Molluck’s plan to turn Mudokons into tasty treats. He wants to save himself, but he’s compelled him to try to save everyone. His selfless act is the spark that sets the revolution ablaze.

Soulstorm is the second game in quintology. In it, you will explore massive cinematic scale and weird and wonderful 2.9D environments filled with breathtaking visuals. 2.9D lets you venture into the world. It creates greater scale and action. Adds depth and immersion.


I wanted to buy Days Gone sone days ago :eek: glad that i waited

It's so stupid and it's even more stupid seeing people on here defend this. It's a new generation sony should be bolstering and giving the new gen prime focus but they're stuck on ps4. Even though, Days Gone runs terrible on ps4. Oddworld looks like a mobile game too. God I wish they'd just do free online so I don't have to waste money on this useless service.

Bought Days Gone last year. It turned my PS4 into a fuckin hair dryer. I played it for maybe 20 minutes and the fan didn't stop. That's never happened with any other game I've had. It was so bad I thought it was going to fuck up my console.

Days gone would be horrible for people with a ps5
All 12 of them :p
Jokes apart, ps5 users are a small % of the potential userbase. Happy that even more people can enjoy one of the best and funnier games developed by sony wws.

As someone with a PS5 I agree but many people don't have one and will love to experience this game!
Days Gone
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.
I heard the game had many issues at launch but I've finished the game recently and had no problem with framerate at all.

Zombie Army worth a download?

I loved Oddworld back on the PSOne. Munch was the reason I purchased the OG Xbox. After playing the remake of Oddworld on the PS4, it kind of feels like a "time and place" game. I'm happy to try Soulstorm but I'm not expecting much.

They have added a whole crafting and inventory system, it might be good but it sure isnt like the original Oddworld games. Right now my expectations are really low after watching a dev explain the mechanics in a IGN video, but at least its free so i will probably finish the game for old times sake unless its unbearable.

I wonder if you can disable the crafting altogether. I want to get past enemies by using my wits, or the environment. Just like the original games.

Never liked Oddworld, not from the first game on PC in the late 90s, I know it's American but to me it felt like those janky euro platformers you'd see on Amiga. Just not my thing.

Already own Days Gone from the PS+ Collection.

That Zombie game looks like budget trash.

I've got nothing. NOTHING.

Solid month. Definitely checking Oddworld out. Already played Days Gone and it was very good, albeit a bit bloated, like every other open world games these days. PS Plus continues to kick ass. Glad I resubbed.
