April is just around the corner which means that a new crop of free PS Plus games will be available for all subscribers. What’s in store for the April 2021 PS Plus lineup?

Over the past several months, PS Plus has been consistently offering some excellent titles like Final Fantasy VII RemakeControl: Ultimate Edition, and Bugsnax.

If PlayStation’s track record shows us anything it’s that April will, hopefully, be no exception.

Here are our predictions for the April 2021 PS Plus Roster.

Predicted April 2021 PS Plus Roster

Every single month PS Plus offers between two and four games for free to all subscribers. Here’s what we think will make the cut for April 2021:

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Oddworld: Soulstorm

Oddworld: Soulstorm is the only game that we know for certain will be on the list. Playstation announced that the game would be up for free to subscribers when it releases on April 6 earlier this year. Expectations are high for the game as it’s been featured in multiple Playstation online events and luckily anyone with a PS Plus membership gets to try it out.

Only Two Titles

The number of games that are offered on PS Plus every month tends to fluctuate. Some months like this March we got four games, but others like last September only saw two. Because Oddworld: Soulstorm is one of the games that Playstation has been pushing to the front of their marketing, I think they’ll want to increase the chances of people playing it by keeping its free competition low. Fewer options mean a greater chance that someone gives your game a spin.

Additionally, because Playstation recently announced their “Play at Home” initiative where they’re offering 10 free games, I think people will be satisfied with the current PS freebies.

A Resident Evil Game

As the excitement and hype for RE 8: Village continues to grow, I think Playstation wants to remind people that they’re the best place to play Resident Evil games. RE 8 has been all over their marketing and the demo for the game was a Playstation exclusive. To me, it makes sense that they would want to keep RE 8 in the back of everyone’s minds. Putting the highly successful RE2 Remake on there would be a great pull from the last several years or even the slightly more action-focused RE3 Remake.
