PlayStation Plus Free Games April 2023

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! And to celebrate this Irish holiday, Sony is releasing a new set of freebies for PlayStation Plus members which have nothing to do with Ireland or St. Patrick. But hey, free games are free games, right? And so, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games April 2023 available for download on Tuesday, April 4.

First, for both the PS4 and PS5, there’s Sackboy: A Big Adventure, the platformer developed by Sumo Digital, and a spinoff from the LittleBigPlanet series. Take control of Sackboy as he ventures through Craftworld on an adventure to stop the evil Vex from enslaving the Sackpeople. Unlike the 2.5D style of the LittleBigPlanet titles, Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a 3D platformer with plenty of abilities, moves, and even combos that Sackboy can perform.

Next, also for both the PS4 and PS5, there’s Meet Your Maker, a new title by Behavior Interactive being first released as a PlayStation Plus free game. In this first-person shooter, enter a post-apocalyptic world where players must work together to construct an outpost while invading outposts of the other players.

Lastly, also for both PS4 and PS5, there’s Tails of Iron developed by Odd Bug Studio. Players control a rat named Redgi who must save the kingdom from evil frogs in this side-scrolling RPG featuring storybook-like graphics.

All three titles in the PlayStation Plus free games April 2023 line-up have platinum trophies.

Among these, Tails of Iron is arguably the easiest platinum of the three, and only requires around 10-15 hours of gameplay.

The platinum for Meet Your Maker is of average difficulty, though will take around 50-60 hours of gameplay, due to fair amount of required grinding.

Obtaining the platinum for Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a little above average difficulty due to some tricky trophies, though requires only around 25-30 hours of gameplay, depending on your skills.

Based on the Nickelodeon film of the same name, Rango the video game continues the tales of Rango - the pet chameleon turned sheriff landing a series of adventures in the Majove Desert. A third-person platformer, you play out the tales which Rango shares with his friends in the saloon, knocking out enemies and bosses with either melee attacks or a trusted popcorn shooter.

The game was overall praised for its graphics - assisted by ILM - and entertaining humor with some variety in the gameplay, but criticized for its short, 5-hour playthrough.

Like other games based on children's animated films, Rango is a simple game to a quick Platinum, which shouldn't take you longer than 10 hours at the most. Many of the trophies are either story-based or will come naturally over time. Once you've finished the game, a level select allows you to mop up anything you've missed.

Since the modes are stackable, select Hard from the beginning (which isn't that difficult anyway) and work your way through the game. Collect as many stars as you can, and use them to upgrade perks which allow you to gather even more stars. Don't worry, for the Red, White & Blue Sevens trophy - which requires you to collect 200,000 stars - are rolling, so feel free to spend them.

Once you beat the game, you can access a stage select, which will allow you to mop up any missed trophies, as well as farm for more stars, until you've reached the required 200,000. See our Links tab for any necessary assistance on the boss battles.
