Sony has revealed that the PlayStation Plus games for April 2022 are Hood: Outlaws & Legends (PS5 & PS4), SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated (PS4), and Slay the Spire (PS4).
As detailed on PlayStation.Blog, all three of these games will be made available at no extra cost to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on Tuesday, April 5.
This news follows Sony’s “all-new PlayStation Plus” that is set to launch in June with three separate tiers and, depending on what tier you choose, access to PS5, PS4, PS3, PS2, PS1, and PSP games. Unlike Xbox Game Pass, however, no tier will give you access to PlayStation first-party exclusives at launch.
Hood: Outlaws & Legends is an online multiplayer title that is, as our review puts it, a “Robin Hood fantasy heist game where you and a crew of outlaws steal from the heavily guarded fortresses of the rich and give it to the poor.”
While we enjoyed our time with it, we also said that it “rewards sloppiness over cunning. That can be fun, but it also badly needs more content.”
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is a remake of the 2003 3D platformer that took us under the sea to hang out with SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy as they try to stop Plankton’s plan to “rule Bikini Bottom with his army of wacky robots.”
In our SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated review, we said that, “rather than addressing any of the real issues with Battle for Bikini Bottom that could have been tweaked without ruining the spirit of the original, it leaves history intact at the cost of making this a better game – and its problems have only become more noticeable with age and increased competition.”
Slay the Spire is a “fantasy deckbuilder adventure that fuses together card games and roguelikes” and we called it one of our favorite roguelikes of all time.
In our Slay the Spire review, we said that it “takes some of the best parts of deckbuilding games, roguelikes, and dungeon crawlers, and mixes them into a wholly new and extremely satisfying package.”
Alongside the announcement of April’s PlayStation Plus games, Sony also shared that Persona 5 will be removed from the PS Plus Collection on May 11, 2022. So, make sure to add it to your game library before then to continue to play it as long as you have an active membership.
While you wait for April 5, don’t forget to download March 2022’s PlayStation Plus games – Ark: Survival Evolved, Team Sonic Racing, Ghostrunner, and Ghost of Tsushima: Legends.
