April is nearly here, and with it comes another great batch of free games from both Sony and Microsoft respectively. While Sony seems intent on offering indies and older games that you might’ve missed, Microsoft seemingly wants to demonstrate how you tackle April in style, as their offering might be the best I’ve seen in months.
Before we get to Microsoft though, here are the freebies for April.
- Dead Star – PS4
- Zombi – PS4
- I Am Alive – PS3
- Savage Moon – PS3
- A Virus Named Tom – PS Vita
- Shutshimi – PS Vita
Although there is nothing spectacular here, I’m quite pleased to see Zombi make the cut, as I was debating picking it up a few weeks back. Although it received mix reception, I can’t help but get the urge to jump into a never-ending zombie nightmare.
It’s also great to get another interesting space game, as I refuse to get tired of them. Dead Star eluded me and so I will be going in completely blind, but it certainly looks promising!
For Xbox owners, here are the games you will receive for the month of April.
- Sunset Overdrive – Xbox One
- The Wolf Among Us – Xbox One
- Dead Space – Xbox 360
- Saints Row IV – Xbox 360
Wow. One of the biggest games on Xbox One is now free for anybody with a Gold subscription. I have wanted to play Sunset Overdrive for as long as I’ve owned an Xbox so again, this is a fantastic freebie. Ridiculously over the top action in an open-world full of actual colour!
What’s more is, there aren’t any slackers this month, as Dead Space is a phenomenal horror game, Saints Row IV is open-world zany madness, and The Wolf Among Us is Telltale at their absolute best. You really cannot go wrong.
