April is free PlayStation Plus the game lineup has been officially announced. We already knew that Oddworld: Soulstorm would be on the dock for PS5, but what more can subscribers look forward to?
Well, on PS4 we have a pretty surprising zombie theme going on. Days Gone, Sony Bend’s open world adventure, is on its way with the solid co-op survival shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Two very good games, but there will no doubt be some talk about the inclusion of Days Gone, which is already one of the PS Plus Collection games on PS5.
While we are not yet going to consider Oddworld: Soulstorm – stay tuned – we recommend the other two titles. This spring Days Gone PS4 Review, we described the game as “open world comfort food”
Days Gone’s fear of survival under the belly gives it just enough personality to distance it from dozens of other open world players already available. A wide range of overlapping game mechanics provide entertaining action, although the title’s unremarkable mission design does not always make the best of them. History can drive, and the overall package is not as polished as its PS4-exclusive counterparts – but as far as gaming comfort food goes, you can eat much worse snacks than this.
And we had as strong praise for “Rebellion’s best game yet”, which we awarded an 8/10 this spring Zombie Army 4: Dead War PS4 Review:
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is one of the best collaborative games on PS4. The meaty campaign boasts impressive level variation, a superb control system and pleasant game mechanics while a Horde mode tests your abilities to the maximum. Rebellion has created an experience with so much to see and do that it can take a group of players weeks to master everything on offer – a crowning success for this type of game. Zombie Army 4: Dead War is an absolute revolt of a title that is as cheeky as it is fun to play.
