All playable starting April 6.
this has turned into the best value in gaming
Bit of an exaggeration, but yes Sony have massively stepped up with their PS Plus free games recently. Let’s hope they keep it up.
Nothing has come close to Plus in terms of quality games this past year. Nowhere near.
Not exaggerating much.
Agreed but it’s very close call, consumers win and that’s all that matter. I’ve had it since the PS3 launch day and my library is insane, yes I’ve also paid a lot. I don’t think people get that you keep all games as long as your subbed, even if you miss months. Remembering to add to library is the hard part!
When they gon update PS COLLECTION???
So tired of zombie games though...
I got Days Gone with my PS collection with PS5 purchase. Excited for Soulstorm.
Days Gone is obviously there for PS4 owners since PS5 owners with PS+ already have the game with the PS+ Collection.
i think i still have my ps plus sub from when i bought a year of it awhile ago, guess i'll finally give days gone a spin on ps4
yeah, sort of sucks for me as it turns the month into nothing really, but that's ok. I'm still finishing up Control and have some other titles to try out.
Which is fine to me. I imagine there are a lot of people who missed it because of its initial reviews on release. I loved the title and encourage anyone who can to give it a go. It did a great job of breathing life into the very saturated zombie game market. Meanwhile, I am trying to smash through FF7 remake, which is great. Pity I can't pay a small sum to upgrade it to PS5 (they want me to shell out £70 to double the frame rate, no thanks).
That is a shocking state of affairs in regards to the upgrade price
As still a 4 owner, i have the disc version of DG installed so I wont be able to partake of this + version. Zombie Army, I hear, is pretty fun.
Oddworlds and Days gone look nice.
Amazing that you already see selfish people complaining about Days Gone being here when 30+ million PS Plus members still only have a PS4.
Try 108 million
not all owners have PS+
Uh no the number of PS4 owners doesn't equal the number of PS+ members. Last time Sony gave the number it was like 45+ million PS+ members or somewhere around there.
Try again... speaking for myself I have 11 PS4 systems myself and only 1 + membership. I know i am the exception, not the rule... but I get where your heart was going. Your head just didnt think it through.
Great for me, two good games now and also Oddworld when I buy a ps5 in 2022
As a PS5 owner I’m disappointed to see Days Gone in here after getting it with the PS Plus Collection. That said, I had an absolute blast with it recently. Hope everyone on PS4 gives it a shot in its current shape, it became amazing with some updates IMO.
I am just about finished Days Gone and it is a fantastic game. I'm a little disappointed it's the free game bit only because I own it already (and I bought it not that I got it with the PS collection) but I'm more than happy with getting Soul Storm so all good. Hopefully more people take the chance with Days Gone and enjoy it now. Although it sold really well apparently
Yeah I thought that was strange.. I think Sony is trying to save a little cash here by double dipping free games especially when they are giving out new games for ps5 on ps plus, sadly odd-world is not my cup of tea.
Yeah, kind of feel like I'm in a gaming drought right now and was hoping for something interesting for this month. Not really digging Control and stepped away from it for a couple weeks. Fired it up last weekend and felt lost and died pretty easily. I have Cyberpunk, but I was really waiting for the PS5 upgrade before I start that, but that's still a long way out.
It's not strange. Not everyone has a PS5 so won't have PS Plus Collection.
Not everyone has a PS5 though, so it's good for PS4 owners. Us PS5 owners get Soulstorm which is brand new. 👍
Mvp for this month is Oddworld: Soulstorm. Ps5 owners may be disappointed with the other options since you can already get days gone from the pa plus collection. Zombie army 4 has good ratings on steam but this is the first I'm hearing of it.
It's a lot of fun in co-op
Wow the new odd world? I’ll take it.
Whoa the new Oddworld!? Yeah, they are taking PS+ very seriously now. This is low key a big story, honestly.
have to agree, i don't even own a ps5 yet and I thought releasing oddworld to ps plus so soon was noteworthy
Sony don’t like to make a song and dance, just get on with it 😜✌🏻
It's interesting to see how Days Gone seems to be viewed now as one of those guys who preordered Days Gone and was yelling that the reviews were dramatically underrating this game for absurd reasons when it was released. You'll definitely want to check out the update when you get a PS5 for a close to locked 60 fps, but I had a great time with in on Pro long before I had a PS5.
"dramatically underrating this game for absurd reasons" So just as for most Sony exclusives.
Nah you can't say this. Ok, they get a few harsh review by the usual suspects, but, overall sony games receive good to outstanding reviews. But i must agree, i bought days gone on release, and imo it was criminally underated for weird reasons. It has its flaws but is a great game.
Even in positive reviews you'll often seen Sony exclusive get criticised for the most trivial issues that wouldn't even be mentioned if it were made by anyone else
That may be true. But in terms of being actually "underrated" sony exclusives, i can't think of one besides days gone in recent years. People say it was the case with the order 1886, but i didn't play it, so i reserve judgement.
Days gone is a missed gem that most people didn't buy because of journalists slandering it as a white privilege game that didn't conform to all genders. It's a shame it didn't get more sales because of all those reviews and people that just wrote up stuff about it by watching trailers to make it fail. It still succeeded though and it's amazing.
And I remember the absurdities of the comments surrounding the inference of white this, that, and the other. It was so obvious said reviewers never really paid attention to the details of the lore... they were creating problems/issues for the sake of the downvote. But are we surprised?
I agree about the slandering and called it at the time way before the reviews came in that the game would fare in the average review because the media had already decided that it was average. But the good news it that the game sold actually pretty well.
Lads, c'mon. What you guys are doing is like saying that Mafia 3 got middling reviews (slightly lower than Days Gone) just because the main character is black, and not because it had obvious issues and was buggy as hell even though it did have strong points (main missions, story, soundtrack). It's baseless identity politics. And what you're saying is factually not true. Want proof? The quote that you're getting offended over and have built a conspiracy on was taken out of context. The journalist you're talking about said that he got surprisingly invested in the story, praised Deacon as being a well-developed character, and more: "While I’ll admit that I initially rolled my eyes at yet another Gruff White Male Protagonist™ in a grim world - especially one with such a Gruff White Male Protagonist™-ey name as Deacon St. John - ************I ended up getting far more invested than I’d initially expected. I shouldn’t be surprised, I suppose************** - this is a first-party Sony title, and Bend is no stranger to writing around well-developed characters and games with a strong narrative focus, either. Yes, “Deek” may seem at face value to be yet another gravelly-voiced antihero, but I found myself genuinely empathizing with him (largely due to some really good performance work by Star Wars’ Sam Witwer) as I learned more about his obligatorily tragic backstory and while interacting with other survivors." How can anyone with a straight face spin that as something insidious? "Gruff white male protagonist" was a very common criticism in the 2000s and nobody cared. People need to lighten up. Days Gone has its strong points but it is very flawed and was a technical mess at launch on top of that. The game had many criticisms - "white privilege game" wasn't one of them.
@dumahim did the research and pointed it out better than I could, but the whole "the industry was against Days Gone and Sony products in general" is such a joke. Your typical Sony release tends to be of high quality, and they usually review highly well. The moment an average, or even above average but not amazing game with the Sony brand hits shelves it's nothing but "oh no, the industry is so biased against Sony. This is just a coordinated scheme to make Sony look bad".
Nice, more great games...
ps5 users got screwed. days gone, really? psnow and ps5 collection
On the bright side, they have a PS5.
There is no bright side for some people. It’s always the me first mentality.
So because people already have a PS5 means they should get screwed over on the PS+ games? Top tier logic!
I'm certainly not going to complain about having one, but not a whole lot to play right now, for me. Already played or not interested in PS+ collection games. AC Valhalla pissed me of to the point I'll never buy another AC game again. I waited a few months before playing it so bugs could get worked out and it was STILL riddled with them. I struggled through, did almost everything, got near the end and ran in to a progress breaking bug that had been there since launch and had 100s of pages of comments on their forum. I don't even recall that they had acknowledged the issue. Not even sure it's been fixed yet. Watch Dogs Legion was probably the most boring game I've ever played. Have Cyberpunk but really want to wait for PS5 upgrade.
You're getting a brand new, $50 game for free, day one. "Yeah, but we're getting screwed 'cause we're not getting that plus more!" You sound like such a child.
Exactly. The sense of entitlement with some people amazes me. I think they're forgetting not everyone has a PS5, there's still a lot of PS4 owners out there, and for PS5 we're getting a brand new game in Oddworld Soulstorm. Can't please everyone I guess.
PS5 owners with PS+ already have: God of War The Last of Us: Remastered Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Battlefield 1 Monster Hunter World Fallout 4 Final Fantasy XV The Last Guardian Ratchet and Clank Infamous: Second Son Days Gone Bloodborne Detroit: Become Human Batman Arkham Knight Mortal Kombat X Persona 5 Until Dawn Resident Evil: Biohazard yeah....they sure got screwed. /s
Is this collection time limited in any way? I thought I'd have a PS5 by now to grab all of these. I have a few on disc for PS4 but would love to see some on my PS5 when I finally get one
@MoonConquistador No, they are yours as long as you are a PS+ subscriber.
@Razzer, no I was meaning time limited offer, to entice early adoption whilst there is a lack of actual PS 5 games. I was just hoping I won't miss out if I can't get one for another couple of months
@MoonConquistador PS+ Collection is permanent, not a limited time offer.
Days gone is the PS4 Plus game, PS5 owners get the new Oddworld. I'd hardly say PS5 owners were screwed tbh.
Wait wasn’t days gone already free? Or was that just for PS5 owners?
It was free for ps5 owners
It was part of the PS Plus collection that was exclusive to just PS5 owners. Now it's available for free for PS4 Plus subscribers. What's funny is PS4 owners bitched when Sony announced that the Plus collection was only for PS5 owners and now PS5 owners are bitching because Days Gone is one of the regular PS Plus freebies for April. It's damned if they do and damned if they don't.
No they shouldn't supplement one of the PS+ games just to appease ps4 owners. Either that game should be given in addition to another game, or the entire collection should be available for ps4 owners, or they could release one ps collection game a month for ps4 owners in addition to the other PS+ games. Nobody should get screwed over on the free games and the fact that so many people think this practice is ok just shows either how stupid or how vindictive the community is!
What are Sony going going to do next month give god of war free for PS4 Ps plus owners as well haha... that would be funny
Can't wait to play Oddworld. Hell yeah!
I'm going to have so many PS5 games to play when I'm able to get one in 2023!
And that's assuming you dodge coronavirus for the next 2 years. Post an update in 2023 will ya lol
Nice i'll get Soulstorm.
Huge month for PS+
I know I sound greedy but Days Gone is already part of the collection that comes with ps+, it's redundant.
