PS Plus: Free Games for April 2015

Brace yourselves, people! We have another great lineup of games coming to PlayStation Plus this month. With shooters, puzzle games, platformers, and more, we have a little something for everyone this April.

To start things off, allow us to present Tower of Guns on PS4 and PS3. It’s about a tower filled with guns. And so much more! Shooter fans, prepare for an adrenaline-pounding challenge through a randomized tower with enemies, bosses, power-ups, and little robots that just want to hug you. Also on PS4, explore the Alaskan wilderness with Never Alone, a beautiful puzzle game with an adorable pet fox. Guide a native Alaskan girl through harsh environments in a touching effort to save her village.

For Plus members gaming on PS3, look out for Dishonored, the critically acclaimed stealth game that celebrates player choice above all else. Also in the mix is Aaru’s Awakening, a stunning platformer that’s also available on PS4. And for PS Vita, both Killzone Mercenary and MonsterBag are joining the Plus lineup this month.

These games will be free for PlayStation Plus members next week Tuesday when the PlayStation Store updates. Enjoy!

  • Just wanted to say what some others seem to neglect. Thank you for the free games as well as many other promises and offers with Playstation plus, and the awesome content! I am always sad when I see people angry about stuff that they should honestly not take for granted. I have seen some people complain about how most of the offers for each month are “too small” or “Why not give better games”, just saying they are free games and Sony and its employees are being very kind to a large and sometimes neglecting community.

  • PLEASE STOP GIVING US SIDE SCROLLER GAMES FOR PS4 THEY ARE SUCH BAD GAMES PLEASE JUST GIVE US A GOOD GAME FOR ONCE IM BEGGING YOU.

  • seriously where is all the games??? I only got Towers of gun for ps4, only 4 games showing!! Seriously SONY!

  • Tempted to trade my physical Killzone: Mercenary copy since the digital one is free. But do I really want to sacrifice almost 5GB of my 64GB memory card? Decisions, decisions…

  • Seriously am i the only one with this problem?? The games listed on this blog is NOT available! I am missing Aaru’s Awakening and Never Alone when i check playstation plus monthly games on my ps4! Someone else?

  • I’ve got the same problem, as the poster above: only Tower of Guns showing in the store. What’s going on?

  • Knock it off with the bleedin’ FPS games. I can’t be the only one who despises them…

  • I hate PSN so much, Live always gets so awesome deals for all their platforms and all I get is tons of indie trash that floods my library. I’d rather have 1 AAA that 50 indies I’m never going to play. I think you can at least show some love to PS4 once every 6 months or so you greedy scrooges.

  • Somehow my psn store shows all psn plus free games, except for Never Alone. Other people with the problem? Seriously all games are showing except for the one i really want.

  • Of course the one week out of the last umpteen that I try to post helpful info…it doesn’t help because the store updates late as all f***. XD

    The store does generally update Tuesdays by 2pm/5pm Eastern, unless it doesn’t. That’s literally the best explanation you’ll ever get.

    Those not seeing the games yet: EU updates sometime on Wednesday with a post on their own blog…

    Sometimes Canada or Mexico will receive a slightly different lineup. It’s happened before.

    But if you’re in the U.S., I dunno. I am, and all the games are properly showing up as free for me.

  • Do we look like people who bought a PS4 to play INDIE games?

  • This is the first time I have ever been disappointed with the free games since signing up with PS Plus last July.

  • Gotta love how all the games the PS4 gets also come to PS3 But not vice versa, traded in my PS3 for a PS4 and now i’m getting the short end of the stick. Give the PS4 some good games aswell!!!!!!!!!!! I havent played Dishonored for example and thanks to me paying for PS Plus that will stay that way. GIVE US PS4 USERS SOME OF THE REAL GAMES ASWELL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The main one I was looking forward to was Never Alone. I’m gutted I can’t see it in the store as a free game or in general. I always look forward to the ps plus games and absolutely love playing the indie games!

  • It’s not a great month if you own the new console. Again, more play forming crap for us next gen owners. When are we going to get something worth the money we’ve spent!? I’m tired of platformers. That’s all we get for 90% of the time. I have my ps4 for almost 2 YEARS!!!!

  • terrible month for ps4 to be honest.
    something must be coming up for Sony to put such a horrendous playlist for the PS4.

  • Soy solo yo o luego de terminar el primer nivel se queda pegado y no avanza y al cerrar la aplicacion y abrirla de nuevo deben empezar de cero… Les ha pasado?

  • No tower of guns? Not available to download from the plus section! This was the only title I don’t already own, my subscription will be cancelled if this isn’t put right.

  • Another pointless month of ps+ for me. I can’t st a d seeing indie games for the ps4. I no longer have a ps3 and I don’t want a vita. Hey ho, nothing I can do but complain, but please bring a proper game to ps+ soon? Indie games suck imho

  • Sorry but not impressed with this month’s selection. The best game is for the vita.

  • So we have gone from getting game such as Infamous, prototype and injustice to getting these games…
    For my personally all these games have been bad for the last couple of months…
    Hope we get better games next month…

  • I’ve just played Monster Bag, and it’s awesome. Beautiful story and really fun game! Congrats to the studio and thanks Sony for putting it into the list this month.

  • Hey I’m from the UK. Ps3 and vita owner some good games tho one I was most looking forward too is that tower of guns hasnt shown up on. My PlayStation. Plus. Wonder if we are not getting it in my region

    Thanks for the games Sony.
    But if anyone knows if the UK is or isn’t getting the game. I would love to hear back from.You

  • It’s amazing how many people complain on these announcements every month. I’m sure there would be complaining if the free games next month were GTA V, bloodborne, and you got a free blowjob from a model. Way to go internet.

  • TenTonHammer23 ´
    yeah sure everyone complains when they give us bloodborne, gta5, unity. that was the dumbest thing i ve ever heard sorry.

    ps plus quadruple since ps4 launch and all they gave was injustice and 99% were indie games.
    ps4 costumers are paying the most and getting the worst to be honest, they are getting not very much for it.
    Is that too much to ask for 1 aaa title every 3 month? what about metal gear solid ground zeroes its at 4 dollars to be honest and cheaper than an indie game, ps4 costumers would be happy.
    the most ps4 arent even downloading the games, they gave up on ps plus for ps4.
    they can give us indiegames there is no problem with that, what about unfinished swan, journey, flower,
    hohokum, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, walking dead, wolf amoung us, giana sisters, limbo, trine 1, white night, helldivers, octodad, entwined child of light and so on…
    ht and this is a new service with better games.

  • but please every 3 month atleast 1 bigger game like, blackflag, bf4, need for speed, thief, sherlock holmes, murdered, tomb raider, ground zeroes, knack, killzone, wolfenstein ….

    they arent fair anymore and they overstate…
    they force everyone those indiegames but only a small couple of guys want it. they do not even think at the most people.

    Never Alone (7/10) i finished it 100%, it was okay, beautiful but medicore game with bad controls,
    Tower of Guns(1/10) buggy and ugly game
    Aaru s Awakening (1/10) totally bad 2d platformer really?

    its just my opinion that they overstate with indiegames on ps4. they should be more fair and give atleast every 3 month a bigger game like sherlock on the ps4 or even murdered soul suspect

    murdered soul suspect is dead, the studio closed in july 2014, really?

    nobody wants bloodborne or gta 5, but ps4 ps plus user want to treat fairly aswell.
    they should atleast think about it thats all i want.
    even microsoft with games with gold could affort rayman legends and child of light and this is a new service with better games.

  • we dont want only aaa games, its to early but really man they could be fair and give us every 3 months atleast 1 good game like sherlock holmes ps4 (14$) murdered soul suspect ps4(15$), Ground Zeroes (4$), Battlefield 4 (6$ (with Premirum 25$),
    Tomb Raider 11 $, Need for Speed 20$, Rayman Legends 14$, Thief 11$, Walking Dead, Wolf Amoung Us 11$, MXGP 24$, Wolfenstein 25$, and so on…
    but they give us indiegames with a price tag 11$-20$
    i think they could easily give us something better, every 3 months to be just fair.

    I think they plan to give us in 2017 or 2018 every month an aaa game for ps4, but then its to late, nobody want those games anymore. who wants to play killzone or knackin 2018 really nobody.

    i dont speak for me i already had those aaa games like tomb raider, its just an opinion and how everyone could be happy.

    =============
    sony should reconsider what they are doing. they should find a nice balance between indie games and retail games to please every ps4 user.
    every 3 month = 1 bigger game (aaa title) like rayman, ground zeroes, sherlock, ac4, wolfenstein …
    every month indiegames (could be indiegames with multiplayer function)
    sorry for spam

  • Great more **** games for PS4. Thanks alot Sony great job. Give the VITA owners the PS3 owners good games and us PS4 gamers Boring crappy games woooow. Oh well getting Bloodborne and Mortal Kombat X Anyway.

  • Please give PS4 some real games for PSPlus. I feel like I’m being punished for upgrading early while PS3 is getting the love. Also please show more support for PStv, as in at least being kind enough to let us know if the PSPlus titles for the current month are compatible. Am I being punished for choosing PSTv over Vita because I don’t enjoy holding a game in my hands? It is shameful that ALL Vita games are not compatible yet, they should have been at launch. I was very happy when I bought my PS4, but I feel we are all still awaiting greatness.

  • They should be fair and should find a good balance between indie and aaa games
    Every three months a bigger game like rayman legends, tomb raider , sherlock, wolfenstein
    And the rest they could bring indie games. I hope they could read this

  • Does anyone know if killzone mercenary will get an update because it has too many bugs and it drives me crazy!!!

  • haha never alone was 6.5/10 in my score but only 2 hours of senseless story. Good game play but story doesn’t make any sense.
    Aaru’s Awakening, good colored environment, buuut don’t have enough technique. Played twice and haven’t touched since. It is bit of challenging with time. Can be played when there is absolutely nothing to play.
    Now, tower of guns? Seriously, just run around endless with SINGLE GUN!!! In ps4????? thats freaking waste of hardware. Only good thing is idea with random rooms tho. By the way only 10 guns in the game 8 of which u have to unlock and no reloading in game. But as I said (WHATTA WASTE OF HARDWARE)

  • Never alone was meh 7/10. Tower of Gun was a buggy, boring, and ugly game 0/10. A big game every 3 months is really needed Sony and it will give your customers that you blatantly don’t care about no reason to complain. I don’t feel like my Ps plus is getting me my monies worth.

  • Will I need a PS Vita to play killzone mercenary once I download it to my ps3?

  • Why is it that every free game being offered to PS Plus members are mostly towards PS3 and PS Vita players and nothing (there are some that have been offered but most of them are terrible and not worth the download) for PS4 players??? I mean, all the good games don’t get offered for PS4… and that kinda sucks.

  • I actually enjoy the indie games because they provide different experiences, and some might keep you hooked. I know we don’t have triple AAA games now, but just give Sony and the service some time, you might be surprised.

  • They should be fair and should find a good balance between indie and aaa games
    Every three months a bigger game like rayman legends, tomb raider , sherlock, wolfenstein
    And the rest they could bring indie games. I hope they could read this

  • when is h1z1 coming out???????????
