Spring is fast approaching, and with it comes those pesky allergies. One way to avoid them is to stay indoors and play games all day. So, how about some freebies? Without further ado, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games April 2022 available for download on Tuesday, April 5.
For the PS4, there’s Slay the Spire by MegaCrit, the 2019 deck-building game which won over critics and received countless game award nominations. Players make their way through the levels of a spire, fighting enemies and bosses in turn-based combat through the use of attack and defense cards. Continue to build your deck, and develop strategies that see you to the end.
Also for the PS4 is SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, a remake of the 2003 platformer which in turn is based on the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. Plankton has created a robot army that is threatening Bikini Bottom, and only Spongebob, along with his friends Patrick and Sandy, and save the day. This remake includes a multiplayer mode, as well as content that had been cut from the original game.
Lastly, for PS5 owners, there’s Hood: Outlaws & Legends, an online multiplayer action title inspired by the Robin Hood legend, in which players play as outlaws competing against rival teams in stealing treasures found in vaults. Select from a range of characters each with their own abilities, seek your treasure, and decide how generous you wish to be.
All three titles in the line-up of PlayStation Plus free games April 2022 have Platinum trophies to unlock.
The easiest Platinum, as you could probably imagine, would be for SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated. While not a complete walk in the park, the difficulty is under average, and only requires around 15-20 hours.
The Platinum for Slay the Spire is not incredibly difficult either, though requires not only strategy but a lot of luck, as well. As a result, expect anywhere between 60-80 hours of gameplay to unlock this Platinum.
Lastly, the difficulty in unlocking the Platinum for Hood: Outlaws & Legends is around average to above-average, and also requires around 60-80 hours of gameplay.
