PS Plus games for April include Slay the Spire and Spongebob
GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!
PlayStation has announced the latest batch of games coming to PS Plus subscribers in April 2022. The free games for the month are Hoods: Outlaws and Legends, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, and Slay the Spire. Players will be able to download all three games starting April 5.
Slay the Spire and Battle for Bikini Bottom are both available for PS4, while Hood is available for both PS4 and PS5. Slay the Spire is a roguelike deckbuilding, while Hood is this month’s multiplayer game, a fantasy heist game. Battle for Bikini Bottom is a remake of the platformer first released on PS2, Xbox and Gamecube.
This is the first announcement for PS Plus following the company’s unveiling of the “Spartacus” update. Under the new arrangement, PS Plus subscribers at the “Essential” level would receive these games for free. It’s more or less the only benefit of the Essential tier as other benefits are available for more per month.
PlayStation also noted that Persona 5 would be leaving the PS Plus collection – a series of best-selling games on PS4 available to PS Plus subscribers. It is available until May 11. March’s PS Plus series – Ark: Survival Evolved, Team Sonic Racing, Ghostrunner, and Ghost of Tsushima: Legends – will be available through April 4.
