PlayStation Plus’ free games for April 2022 have been officially announced, following the news about the upcoming service revamp in summer.
Starting April 5, subscribers will be able to get their hands on three games at no extra charge, one of which has a native PS5 version.
That headline game is Hood: Outlaws & Legends, a multiplayer game based on characters from Robin Hood. Rather than violence being at the fore, the aim of the game here is stealth, with players needing to be sneaky to nab as much gold as possible.

Going from one iconic character to another, the next game is SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, A 3D collectathon platformer from the PS2 and GameCube generation that maintained a beloved following over the years, especially in the speedrunning community, brought back for the PS4.
This version is remastered with completely new visuals rather than just being a simple resolution boost job. Some cut content has also been restored.
The final game is Slay the Spire, a rogue-like (procedurally-generated) adventure. The twist here is that gameplay involves different collectible cards, requiring you to think strategically to defeat your enemies.

Once claimed, these games can be played as long as you’re an active subscriber, so if you let your subscription lapse and start it up again later, you’ll regain access.
Earlier this week, it was announced that PlayStation Now will be folded in PS Plus in the summer, making it a multi-tiered subscription service.
The base ‘Essential’ tier remains exactly the same as Plus is now, at the same price with at least three free games every month.
