Free PlayStation Plus games announced for April 2022

PlaystationPlus‘ April 2022 free games were officially announced after the news about the upcoming service changeover in the summer.

Beginning April 5, subscribers can get their hands on three games, one of which has a native PS5 version, at no extra charge.

The headline game is Hood: Outlaws & Legends, a multiplayer game based on characters from Robin Hood. Rather than focusing on violence, the aim of the game here is stealth, requiring players to be sneaky in order to snag as much gold as possible.

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

This version has been remastered with all new graphics instead of just being a simple resolution boosting job. Some cut content has also been restored.

The last game is Kill the tower, a roguelike (procedurally generated) adventure. The twist here is that the gameplay involves various trading cards, so you’ll have to think strategically to defeat your enemies.
