The PlayStation Plus “free” game lineup for April 2017 has been revealed, and much like almost every month since the launch of the PlayStation 4, it’s all about indie developers.
This month’s offerings seem to be focused heavily on multiplayer in one way or another, with the PlayStation Blog announcing the games active PS Plus members get access to:
Drawn to Death is from David Jaffe, the man behind the God of War and Twisted Metal franchises, and is best described as a “third-person shooter combined with a brawler arena multiplayer game,” which takes place inside the pages of a high school kid’s notebook.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, developed by Asteroid Base, originally started as part of the ID@XBOX program and was offered for free to Xbox Live Gold users last February. It features two-to-four-player co-op where each player controls an individual crew member of a spaceship that everyone must protect and pilot.
Invizimals: the Lost Kingdom was developed by Magenta Software and was initially released on the PS3 in 2013. It’s a 3D Platformer that didn’t get much critical support and was quickly forgotten.
Alien Rage – Extended Edition is the “complete” version of a first-person shooter released in 2013 and developed by CI Games. Players must destroy a mining facility and the aliens within it in a sci-fi adventure.
10 Second Ninja is a very difficult platformer, developed by Four Circle Interactive, which immediately spurs thoughts of Super Meat Boy with its simplistic, cartoony graphics meshed with extremely challenging scenarios.
And finally, Curses ‘n Chaos is a 2D arena-brawler focused on 2-player co-op, released by Tribute Games in 2015. Players hang out on a single screen as they battle wave upon wave of enemies.
As always, the titles are free to download for anyone with an active PlayStation Plus membership. If your subscription lapses for any reason, you lose access until you renew your membership.
