Please be excited. It’s time to reveal the two free games coming to PlayStation Plus in April.
We say free, but they’re not really free are they? You’re paying a subscription, after all. And we say excitement, but, well, your mileage may vary with these two.
First up is Funcom’s loin-cloth survival adventure, Conan Exiles. The game was released to warm reviews last year and quickly found an audience of dedicated fans. It’s a tricky game to get a handle on, but once you do there are deep pleasures to be found.
Next up is Deck13’s sci-fi RPG, The Surge. If you like video games to provide a punishing, Souls-like experience there’s some enjoyment to be had. However, it doesn’t quite have the depth or finesse of the games from which it draws obvious inspiration.
Both titles are free to download from April 2, 2019. Here’s that lineup, once again, in full.
PlayStation Plus free games – April 2019
- Conan Exiles – PS4
- The Surge – PS4
