Sony has a trio of new games available as of April 6, and as long as your PS Plus subscription is active, the club’s security guard will be happy to let you in as soon as you verify that your name is on the list. In fact, it’s an impressive month for the service, which has recently stepped up to launch not only well-received games, but new ones as well.
On PS4, you’ll be able to pick up Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War, while PS5 owners can add Oddworld: Soulstorm to the download queue. The inclusion of Oddworld brings a good change of pace, since the single-player plays a lot of history, platform and strangeness for the players. A long-awaited sequel to New ‘N’ Tasty from about seven years ago, just remember to randomly shout “follow me” after inhaling a little helium while playing it.
Zombie fans are basically left with no choice this month. Days Gone is an underrated horror sandbox, where the odds are against you and survival is not always guaranteed. The large number of newly infected bodies that can be thrown at players is absurd, Sam Witwer acting as the game’s main protagonist, Deacon St. John, is excellent and the whole experience is a brilliant showcase of what the PS4 was capable of. best.
Finally, Zombie Army 4 is fantastic cathartic fun. Hordes of the undead, their general bastard nature amplified by the fact that they were Nazis in a previous life, staggering towards him. The only thing that keeps you from Reich Said Fritz? A mysterious objective, as Zombie Army 4 takes the best parts of the Sniper Elite series, plays in an enthusiastic attitude and allows you to destroy the forces of the Axis in a bloody manner. It is truly one of the best efforts of the Rebellion developer to date.

Over on Xbox, it’s also a decent month for that service. Outriders leads the charge on Xbox Game Pass, and Games With Gold subscribers can also nab games featuring Vikings, the biggest of rigs, and rocketeers.
