• "Oddworld: Soulstorm" is confirmed to be a part of April's PS Plus lineup
  • "Resident Evil 7" and "Far Cry 5" may also be available considering their sequel release dates
  • There has been no official word regarding the games lineup at the moment

With a little less than a week left before March ends, rumors and speculations about the next batch of free PlayStation games for PlayStation Plus have begun to surface along with even more free games courtesy of Sony’s Play At Home initiative.

One title has already been confirmed to arrive with April’s PS Plus subscription deal, and a few more are expected to come with it. If April’s lineup will be anywhere near as big as March’s, then PS4 and PS5 fans can expect a very good month ahead of them.

Here are some of the games that are expected to go free next month. Keep in mind that apart from the first entry, everything else is not confirmed.

“Oddworld: Soulstorm”

The news of “Oddworld: Soulstorm” going free has been announced ahead of its actual date of availability for PSN subscribers. The game was initially revealed to be a part of April’s lineup in the previous State of Play presentation in the last week of February.

“Oddworld: Soulstorm” is a 2.5D side-scrolling platformer featuring the protagonist Abe’s attempt at freeing his people from slavery. The game is a re-imagining of the original “Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus” from 1998.

Since PlayStation has been pushing “Soulstorm” at the front of their marketing efforts, it’s expected that April’s lineup will feature smaller titles to keep “Oddworld’s” competition low, Dualshockers noted. However, it’s still possible for Sony to add a more popular game to the mix similar to how “Final Fantasy VII Remake” was paired with “Remnant: From The Ashes,” a smaller yet still popular title.

Resident Evil 7

Seeing “Resident Evil 7” as part of PSN’s free games may be farfetched, but it is not entirely impossible. With the upcoming release of “Resident Evil Village” in May, April would be the perfect time to give PS Plus subscribers a taste of what’s to come.

“Resident Evil Village” is a direct continuation of “RE7,” featuring the same protagonist but in a different setting. “Village” also uses the same first-person camera perspective that the previous game did.

“Far Cry 5”

“Far Cry 6” is on the horizon with a mid-2021 release date. This could potentially lead to one of the previous entries in the series becoming part of the PS Plus lineup.

“Far Cry 5” would fit the bill the most since it has support for PS5. It would also give players a better idea of what the sixth mainline series entry would feel like assuming Ubisoft doesn’t tamper much with the game’s formula.
