The Bigger Game
April 2017 PS Plus Free Games Predictions
As we begin to edge ever-closer to April, PlayStation fans will be wondering what free games they’ll get from PS Plus next month alongside David Jaffe’s Drawn to Death. As always, you can expect a ‘bigger’ game of sorts to headline the lineup, and for April 2017, we could see Rainbow Six Siege leading the way.
While the online multiplayer-based shooter certainly didn’t get off to the best start back in 2015 with worryingly low user numbers on Steam in its opening month, it’s safe to say that the community has grown considerably since. With Ubisoft opening the game up for a free weekend already this year, and the game’s success very much reliant on the number of online users, this could help further expand its growth. Plus, it’s a pretty great game for PS4 owners to get for free, too, as it’s best played online with friends. With no entry barrier to dissuade players from giving it a try, you’ll be able to jump into the tactical team-based action with friends and whittle the hours away.
Of course, it’d be wrong of us to completely forget that the PS3 and Vita still get some PS Plus love, and while it’s often difficult to predict exactly what Sony will offer up on these platforms, April 2017 is a bit of an exception. Persona 5 finally releases in the West on PS4 and PS3 April 4. With that in mind, there’s a good chance that Persona 4 Golden could finally go free on the platform. After all, what better way to entice newcomers to pick up the latest title than by putting its predecessor up free of charge?
