PS Plus games in April surges alongside a barbarian

Yes, we know that the drop of six games to two games per month has been met with a bit of a negative reaction. It does feel like you’re getting less value for your money, but, let’s be honest here, did you even play those PS3 and Vita games much? At least the two titles are quite strong contenders this month. They’re not the greatest, but we’ve seen worse. Here is what is on offer in April if you’re a PS Plus subscriber.

Conan Exiles

Drawing inspiration from classic barbarian tales, survival adventure Conan Exiles winds back the clock to the very dawn of civilisation, casting you as a forgotten exile abandoned alone in the desert for crimes unknown.

Starting out with nothing but a loin cloth, you’ll have to explore this vast, hostile world, gathering materials, crafting tools and carving out a new life for yourself.

Exploring a shared online space, you’ll have the chance to meet other players, build settlements and bases together, and even raise your own armed fortresses as you advance your mission to dominate this treacherous environment.

The Surge

From the creators of brutal medieval action-adventure Lords of the Fallen comes a challenging sci-fi spin on the hardcore action RPG genre.

Take on the role of new staff member Warren who, following a trying first day on the job, awakens to the aftermath of some unknown cataclysm to find his new workplace devastated by out-of-control machines.

Explore the twisting maze-like environment of the CREO research facility, fending off haywire tech, scavenging new parts and weapons, rescuing survivors and unlocking the secrets of this vast, abandoned facility.

Herewith the reveal trailer:

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
