Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and DIRT Rally 2.0 are your PlayStation Plus games for April

Globe-trotting thrills await as you uncover dangerous, long-lost secrets with famed treasure hunter Nathan Drake and tackle challenging rally courses across the world

With April’s pair of PS Plus games, embark on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure, then have your nerves and driving skills tested in some of the world’s most challenging rallying courses.
Let’s take a look.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed adventure epic arrives on PS Plus! Several years after his last adventure, retired fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, is forced back into the world of thieves. With the stakes much more personal, Drake embarks on a visually stunning globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. Nathan Drake’s greatest adventure will require quick wits, fast fists and inventive use of weaponry while testing his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves.

DIRT Rally 2.0

Perfect precision driving and develop nerves of steel as you roar through a selection of iconic rally tracks from across the globe in search of championship glory (and ever-faster lap times) in this realistic race sim. DIRT Rally 2.0 embodies the best venerated British development studio Codemasters has to offer: challenging courses, race-altering weather systems, in-depth car customisations and much more. In all, this is a masterclass in off-road racing.

Both titles will be available to download from Tuesday, 7th April until Monday, 4th May.

March’s PS Plus games

As a reminder, you’ve still got time to download this month’s PS Plus games. Face a platforming challenge like no other in Shadow of the Colossus as you hunt sixteen gigantic colossi across the land. In Sonic Forces, two generations of hedgehog join together for a mix of 2D and 3D platforming.
Find out more here. These titles are available to download until Monday, 6th April.

  • Wost kept secret ever, haha. ?

  • Weak. Overrated Uncharted and cars – boring.

    • Nah, Uncharted 4 is amazing and Dirt 2.0 is probably the best rally game ever made. But I guess you can’t please everyone. Nobody can say it’s a ‘weak’ month though. Nothing new for me, but excellent games.

    • It’s weak for me. I own uc4 and don’t have any intentions to play it any time soon and couldn’t care less about cars.

    • This mentality always cracks me up.

      “I already own said game” = weak month XD

    • God forbid someone else enjoy’s a really good game that came out 4 years ago

    • Because a whole lot of people basically need to pay for it again, just so they can play online games.

    • Of course it’s a weak month. I haven’t got anything from plus in 2020 and this month is no different.

    • “Uncharted is overrated” says guy with Assassins Creed avatar, get outta here…

    • “Weak. Overrated Uncharted”

      “I own uc4 and don’t have any intentions to play it any time soon”

      So even though you haven’t played the game you say it’s overrated. Riiiiiiight..

    • You’re getting ‘weak’ confused with ‘doesn’t interest me’. Stating something is weak is objective, whereas what you’re /actually/ saying is completely subjective.

      It isn’t a weak month. There just isn’t anything you want to play.

    • Violins out for the upset, entitled gamer that is sk_lp_him. Quality offerings mean nothing to him if he owns it already.

    • Assassin’s Creed doesn’t get nines or tens in reviews like the overrated uncharteds from overrated naughty dog. So yeah bare bones gameplay of walking and shooting is rather overrated to me.

    • Uncharted 4 and Killzone is the reason i bought PS4.

    • Your comment is weak. And boring.

    • To be fair Uncharted is fine as a game, while not the “best game evar” it is fine for a run through.

      The real overrated title by that company is something that’s basically sad uncharted with anything fun replaced with loads of talking and teenage girls. (no not Uncharted 4, though that did seem heavily influenced by that formula, unfortunately)

    • I actually didn’t play it yet and been waiting for a discounted version. Now I get to play it for free.

    • yeah I don’t know what’s wrong with Sony, just look at Xbox Gold. I bought U4 back in 2016.

  • Another very good month, thank you!

  • Was it really 2016? The game when Sony cracked the Single Player formula.

  • Dirt Rally 2.0 is a fantastic sim but I sort of feel that Dirt 4 may have been a better choice as it’s a lot more accessible.

    The Dirt Rally games are aimed more towards been a pure rally simulator & work best with a wheel/pedals. It takes a lot of time to master & understanding the car dynamics, Co-driver pace notes etc… is a necessity to get through what at times are some really long stages.

    Dirt 4 is more in the style of Colin McRae Dirt/2/3, Easier to pick up & play with a pad, Shorter stages with handling/physics modelling that are easier to get on top of for the more casual fan of driving games.

  • Wow what a shocker not because everyone knew about this because someone at Sony leak it . I already own uncharted 4 so because every month that’s always something you already got .

  • Uncharted is literally the best selling PS4 game to date, over 16M copies sold as of October 2019. And that’s not counting second hand sales on ebay etc or game trading with friends. Save to say most subscribers have played it already. Should’ve put it up on PS Now and give Control to PS plus instead, not that I care either way, since I’ve played them both, but seeing new games on Plus would be nice. Whatever, Sony won’t change anything. I will. New Xbox makes PS5 look like a joke, and Gamepass is much better than PS Now.

  • LOVE Uncharted 4 but i already have it but maybe it’ll bring in some new players to the fun online modes I still very much enjoy almost 4 years on!

    Rally racing ain’t my thing, but to those who like that, have fun! :)

  • driveclub dies and dirt rally is born: thanks

  • Really disappointing. Yet again another popular game that is very low value now, constantly on sale and was just on PS Now, Uncharted is great but at this point should be a bonus game. And Dirt Rally 2 is mediocre, and it will be too difficult for most. With all the people at home right now this is a poor decision, they could’ve at least put something on for all ages. It’s like Sony choose the games that the least amount of people will play.

    • What do you except? ac odyssey and death stranding??

    • Well considering AC is around the same value as Dirt then why not, and Death Stranding, no don’t be daft.

    • Wonder when people are gonna stop looking at the value and look at the actual games. Why would you rather get a bad game that cost alot compared to a cheap game that is fantastic. Just dont get it. And yes, thats exactly what you said, if not you would not have mentioned the price. I just dont get it.

    • Errrm ok.

    • Maaden, that argument works if you’re talking about a hidden gem, but Uncharted 4 is hardly that. The issue with having any Playstation Hits title as a PS+ game is that when they go on sale they go from already cheap to the cost of a hamburger, so almost anyone who has even the slightest interest in playing it would have already picked it up by now. Who does that leave?

  • I pre ordered Uncharted 4 and haven’t got round to playing it yet. I might aswell wait now and play it on PS5.

    • You’ve let it slide for four years after anticipating how good it was and paying in advance for it?

      I’m dumbfounded but can safely say that you have a great adventure ahead of you.

  • Why don’t games become available the first to the last of each month?

  • Who is Uncharted 4 aimed at? As good of a game as it is, Uncharted is probably the Ps4’s Flagship franchise, the vast majority of players with the vaguest of interests in it have played it already, the number of people that this interests must be incredibly minimal.

    • Giving it to people who had no interest in it is perfect for them. People who had no interest weren’t going to buy it, so no sale was “lost”.

      An added bonus is it’s one of their games, so they don’t even have to pay for it.

  • Thanks for revealing this last week PlayStation Access.

    I’d prefer Dirt Rally instead of DR 2.0 due to the PSVR support but that’s the way the cookie falls into your cuppa.

  • Release The Last Of Us Part 2 Demo please Sony, put it on the PlayStation Store. Its what the store was designed for.

    The 1 hour Demo that was cancelled at Pax East,due to Cv 19. If the game is coming out on May 29th and the 1 hour Demo is available, then why have you not released the Demo on the store for the public to play? It’s not like the public can play it at conventions anytime soon. The most convenient and safest way to experience the Demo is at home in the comfort of your own home, with a beer in hand??

    • Holding a drink in one hand while playing with electronics probably isn’t the safest way.

    • hey if Strangeheaven can comfortably use every Last of Us 2 control on a Dual Shock with just one hand I’d be pretty impressed.

    • @Carnvius_Prime

      ? Lol. Umm? Yeah that would be a challenge for me with one hand lol.

  • Great games for great month!

  • I already have Uncharted 4 and Dirt 4, I feel Rally 2.0 is for more “serious” driving fans.

  • Just this. You could have given more given the situation in the world. You are cheap. Look to other companies

  • Never got much of anything out of this service, but at least the indies were worth considering downloading, if only for the smaller size.

    To think I initially wanted AAA, I soon realized I’d rather physically buy anything over 20 gigs cheap than having to download it and

    ruin my online Battlefield experience even worse than the average week. Hence, the online fee-digital rental combo makes zero sense.

    • i REALLY miss the indies. Often got some great lil games often crossbuy to play on both ps4 and vita too. And my wishlist is about 90 percent indies and most of them have never been in any sale so far. le sigh…

  • Great month! I already own the Uncharted but I’m craving to get the Dirt Rally 2.0

    I’ve been playing the demo and it is a demanding game on your concentration and driving skills! Love it!

    I only think that with all of this Covid-19 situation, this monthly games could come a few days earlier ?

  • It’s a great month, except for that Uncharted 4 were the first game i ever got on PS4, and i got Dirty Rally 2.0 on PC a month ago. Atleast DR 2.0 is on PS4 and not PC this time. :) Double dipping isn’t that bad.

  • Had Uncharted 4 a while now, but I’ll give Dirt 2.0 a go at some point. Not a bad month, but there’s been better

  • I’ve just tried the rally game demo on medium i didn’t crash once and still came 23rd I’m so bad at rally games ?

  • Urgh. Why do no racing games have splitscreen now?

    It makes even boring sim racers tolerable to have someone else to be silly with.

    • Splitscreen is bad for profit, it’s one less copy sold….aand other friend has to pay for this awesome service as well.

    • To be fair it’s also one less copy sold to not include splitscreen.

      I go to the sore page for every racing game, see “1 player” and I don’t buy it. Ever.

    • well lucky you if you got a second gamer in the room. :P I don’t. And at present I’d say a lot of people who may usually do currently don’t due to lockdowns and such :P

    • I suppose I am lucky to live with other people who play stuff.

      With people being locked in their houses, it seems the perfect time for some social gaming. Unless they live alone, then they can put the TVs half way through the wall (or fence) and play splitscreen with their neighbors (see I knew vertical split had a purpose).

  • SoakedInBleach85

    Come on Sony, everyone would have played uncharted within the first 5 months of its release and you know tht, its a playstation staple so why include it when you could have added another game. Dirt rally 2.0 not bad would have preferred the 1st because of the higher range of generated tracks to race on. Pull ya finger out Sony we’re all getting hit by the corona and we have to stay in, do something for ya fans for all the countless money we spend on our ps4.

  • Nice, I can finally get all the UC4 treasures…….FOR FREE!

    And also drive around in dirt…….FOR FREE!!!

  • Some people are missing the point of those PlayStation Plus offerings and they don’t think actually about the newcomers to the console who are a lot by the way considering the worldwide quarantine who would really enjoy an older PS exclusive such as Uncharted 4.

    I have also seen a couple of posts saying DiRT Rally 2.0 is a hardcore racer, but no I wouldn’t go so far as it’s pretty playable with a contoller and it’s much easier and accessible than its predecessor. It’s a great Rally game which you can all enjoy whether you are playing with a controller or not.

    • This… I have ps from one year, i have bought 3 games for my kid , and i use only ps plus games + the two games that came with my slim(RDR2 and Spiderman) … So PS+ is my constant source of fresh games(fresh for me, i didnt spend more that 25 eur for games for a year) and also PS+ discounts are in play for me. Not only the free games, but also the deals and offers are good

  • What a bloody mess. Just do the 1st of each month.

    • Why is that? Look at the calendar, find the first tuesday of the month and you are good to go… Or you are too lazy to look ?

  • I really enjoyed Uncharted 4 so that is a great game to get for those who haven’t played it yet. Personally I am looking forward to Dirt Rally 2.0 as I don’t have a serious racing game on my PS4, so this will fill that gap nicely.

  • Sammy______Snake

    thank for finally giving us a decent month to get us through lockdown. But I expect this or close to this normally.

  • Excellent Sony! I have complained in the past about plus titles but will always give credit where it’s due, and it’s due here. Uncharted 4, although I have already played it, is an incredible plus title for those who have yet to play. And after purchasing dirt rally 1 recently and loving it, I’m very, very happy to see dirt rally 2.0! Another great high quality title! With these last few months, it almost feels like we are getting back to the good ol’ days of ps plus!! Brilliant, keep it up!

  • Good month. Not for me personally as I’ve played Uncharted 4 and am terrible at Rally games. I literally subbed for a year to Plus yesterday because my son wanted online for PvZ, wish I’d waited another month now!

  • Uncharted 4 is an amazing game. Some people will complain that if you are interested in it you already own it. People expect AAA games every month, but not games that people already have. Not really possible. Can’t say that the driving game strikes me as my thing so much. Mainly this month will be about not having to stand up to switch to Uncharted 4.

  • I’d die a happy man if I could get to play Uncharted 5….or Golden Abyss Remastered for the PS5 at least.

    • Love to see that.

    • My man. :)

    • That is almost a certantiy. Sony makes money from the Uncharted franchise so I have no doubt there will be another game in the series however I do not think it is being developed by Naughty Dog.

    • I’m surprised Golden Abyss isn’t already on PS4. I’m not buying a PS Vita just for a handful of games so a remastered version is the only way I’ll play it. I bought a PSP just for God of War: Chains of Olympus which was later remastered for the PS3 I already owned, so I’m not making that mistake again.

  • Already got uncharted.. Might download dirt though.

    What’s next month, the lost legacy? Which I’ve already got.

  • Great thank you Sony

  • PS is becoming a joke with the monthly games, we just had the Uncharted 1-3 and now we get 4, massive variety there Sony and as for Dirt Rally, unless you’re a racing fan it’s useless, so 80% of people won’t be bothered, if it wasn’t for the Final Fantasy Remake coming out, I’d of probably switched to Xbox by now.

  • vaidade-indecisa

    I’d die a happy man if I could get play Uncharted 5….or Golden Abyss Remastered for the PS5 at least.

    • Sony makes money from the Uncharted franchise so I have no doubt there will be another game in the series however I do not think it is being developed by Naughty Dog.

  • So where are the new plus games?

  • Anyone Else getting this ->>> Not available for Purchase Uncharted 4 > You already Own: Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Currency. ERM yes I played the Multiplayer when I had the Physical Disc copy in 2016. Doesn’t mean I have it today in 2020 . So I cannot d/l and play UC4??? Sony?

    • Yep, me to

    • Same issue here. Hope they fix it.

    • Lads I looked at my ‘Library’ inside the PS+ section you can download.(or at least I am now d/l the single player.. mp was bad)

    • Same issue. Would be a bummer if i can’t claim this game because of a pre-order bonus in 2016.

    • Sorry didn’t see this before posting the same.

      never owned it or borrowed it before so no idea either

    • Same ? kinda shocking that there isn’t a customer support contact for people that have paid for this membership….

    • Not surprised about this issue. It’s been there for months, it’s nothing new with the Plus release, i bought it some time ago. I use the Store website to put games in queue but i just can’t queue this game, because i own the Multiplayer Currency and… the game itself. LOL. Not surprised also because they refused to fix the download queue issue with bundles as of today.

  • Any ideas or help how to download this. Says I can’t because I “already own Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Currency”

    i haven’t previously owned it or downloaded it so no idea…

  • Great games this month. However, I have the same issue as others that I am not able to download/add to library Uncharted 4 due to “You are not able to purchase this product for the following reason(s):You already own Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Currency”. Please help. Thx.

  • Can’t download because of this currency issue! Moving to Xbox!

  • Does anyone have a contact detail for PlayStation plus members support… It won’t let me download Uncharted 4

  • Managed to fix this thanks to Reddit, by going into the ps store via a browser and then going to download list and downloading it from there. Again disappointed there’s no support contact for members that have paid….

    • I still don’t understand why owners of U4, doesn’t matter if bought digitally or obtained via PS+, cannot put the game in queue from its respective Store site page. I can queue anything else i own (except bundles, because it only puts one item in the queue out of the total) except this, unless i do it from the Download List, but i bought it months ago and i need to surf through hundreds of pages and i can’t even skip them. Yeah, i know there’s the Library on PS4, but sometimes not all my owned games appear there.

  • Hi, I have 90gb free, but trying to install Dirt 2.0 getting storage space error? Help only happens when installing Dirt 2.0

  • It’s not letting me download dirt rally 2.0 what should I do

  • I’m really hoping that mays games will be Dayz and Gran Turismo
