    PlayStation Plus Update April 2016

    Hi everyone — we’re happy to announce the PS4 Plus games for April. Pilot a warship escaping from a dying star in Dead Star or survive a zombie-infested London in Zombi on PS4.


    First up we have Dead Star, a team-based shooter with RPG influence that we are excited to have launch as a Plus game. Dreamed up by the folks at Armature Studio (Founded by key members of the Metroid Prime team!), Dead Star is the result of a “Wouldn’t it be cool if…” process that started with a space shooter foundation and includes elements of strategy and MOBA-like titles.


    The result is a 20-player online experience that’s easy to pick up and play, but also offers a great deal of depth (skill trees, ship upgrades, team strategy, and more). Dead Star has been a big hit at shows like PlayStation Experience and PAX South where players are finding something really special.





    The second PS4 game this month is Zombi, a first-person survival-horror experience. Zombi really was at the forefront of the resurgence we’ve seen in recent years of genuine survival-horror games. The London setting combined with well-paced gameplay sets Zombi apart from more action-oriented titles. Add in the extra challenge of permadeath and it’s easy to see why this game became a cult hit.


    In the last several years we’ve seen a lot of experimentation with the blending of genres. This month’s PS4 titles are shining examples of the kinds of mashups that create a lot of rich and layered gaming experiences.


    So, in addition to your opinions on this month’s PS Plus titles, I’d also like to hear about your thoughts on game genres, what you find appealing, and why.

    [top]Full Lineup:

    • A Virus Named Tom, PS Vita
    • Dead Star, PS4
    • I Am Alive, PS3
    • Savage Moon, PS3
    • Shutshimi, PS Vita
    • Zombi, PS4
    See you in the comments section. Enjoy.

    We just got I Am Alive free this month? Guessing they will change it at the last second like they did with Super Stardust...

    Edit: Nevermind. Saw this on the blog post:

    Kurolegacy7 on March 30th, 2016 at 8:47 am said: I am Alive was available for free for only around a day. Then replaced back by super stardust. It was an accident that it was free on plus. It was meant for this month, not last month.

    I figured I Am Alive was meant for April after being mismarked as a Plus game back in March.
    I don't know much about these games, except for Savage Moon (since I bought it back in 2009). At least there are Vita games I don't have this time. Of course, with my backlog being as giant as it is, that might not be a good thing!

    Yeah, after seeing that I had to go get Super Stardust before it left PS+. Glad I saw that post before I missed it...

    All four of those games are neat and everything, but they're certainly not Savage Moon.

    Cute. 3 of them I own, 2 of them I platted, with SR4 in the Queue, so this isn't "disappointing" to me.

    Zombi was originally a WiiU launch title that, while very well received by critics and fans alike, it didn't really sell many copies, which scrapped the planned sequel for it and forced the developers to later make a PS4/Xbox One port of the game to make a little money back on it. A lot of people credit the game's failure to it being on the WiiU exclusively, which was what actually made the game great. For PS4/Xbox One they changed a couple mechanics to allow it to play better without the WiiU's gamepad, but it's pretty much just a straight port.

    I own Zombi for PS4 as well as both PS3 games. If I'm gonna renew my PS+ subscription in April, its gonna be like on the 28th or so cuz no matter how good Dead Star looks/is, it's not worth the $50 for the subscription if next month is garbage too

    If it was an April Fools joke then they would have offered us games they already offered us or something like that.

    Oh, I didn't know about A Virus Named Tom already has the trophies. I tried to search its title and then there were no trophies in this game. Maybe the computer got messed. Thanks, Max. Let's see if Dead Star has the trophies before Tuesday.
