The Bigger Game – Borderlands 3

PS Plus Free Games Predictions April 2021

Late last month, Sony announced what PS Plus free games would be coming to players in March 2021, including Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Maquette, Farpoint VR, and Remnant: From the Ashes.

While the official list of PS Plus free games for the upcoming month of April 2021 has yet to be announced, we have some predictions as to what games might be included for free in the meantime.

Usually, a larger game headlines the list, much like the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is for this month. For April we suspect the big draw will be Borderlands 3 from 2K Games and Gearbox Software.

It’s been a solid two and a half years since Borderlands 3 released, so it’s fair for Sony and Gearbox to start considering offering it for free on PS Plus.

Not to mention pretty much the rest of the entire Borderlands franchise has already been offered for free on PS Plus, including:

  • Borderlands in September 2012
  • Borderlands 2 in December 2013
  • Tales from the Borderlands in May 2017
  • Borderlands: The Handsome Collection in June 2019

It’s only a matter of time before the third entry in the mainline series winds up on PS Plus as well.

The Smaller Game – Planet Coaster: Console Edition

Planet Coaster: Console Edition is our pick for the smaller game inclusion, but that doesn’t mean it’s a small game itself.

If you loved Roller Coaster Tycoon as a kid, Planet Coaster is like that but multiply it by 1000 in the details department. You can make completely custom parks from the rides to the buildings, right down to the little tiny decorations on the sides of paths.

We think it will be a likely inclusion as Sony seems keen to include PS5 versions of titles in its line-ups since the release of the console. Planet Coaster has a dedicated PS5 version of the game, not to mention a ton of DLC which is always an indicator that a title might be included on PS Plus in the future to entice add-on purchases.

Planet Coaster was a PC exclusive starting way back in November 2016 before it came to consoles with this edition in November 2020.

Sony should announce the official PS Plus games list in the next week or so. Make sure to check back with Twinfinite to see what you’ll be getting for free.
