PlayStation Plus free games for April 2022 announced

PlayStation Plus‘April 2022 free games have been officially announced, following news from the next service overhaul in the summer.

Starting April 5, subscribers will be able to get their hands on three games at no additional cost, one of which has a native PS5 version.

This title game is Hood: Outlaws and Legends, a multiplayer game based on the characters of Robin Hood. Rather than foreground violence, the aim of the game here is stealth, with players having to be sneaky to nab as much gold as possible.

Moving from one iconic character to another, the next game is SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Rehydrated Bikini Bottom. A collectathon 3D platformer from the PS2 and GameCube generation that has maintained a beloved following over the years, especially in the speedrunning community, brought back for the PS4.

This version is remastered with entirely new visuals rather than just being a simple resolution boost job. Some cut content has also been restored.

The end game is kill the arrow, a rogue-like adventure (procedurally generated). The twist here is that the gameplay involves different collectible cards, forcing you to think strategically to defeat your enemies.
