Last Chance To Claim April's Free PlayStation Plus Games

This month's lineup of free games includes the excellent deck-building roguelike Slay the Spire.


The next batch of PlayStation Plus free games goes live tomorrow, May 3. If you haven't claimed April's freebies yet, today is your last chance. Until tomorrow, you can snag the critically acclaimed Slay the Spire, Hood: Outlaws & Legends, and SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated.

PlayStation users are in for a treat with Slay the Spire. A deck-building game with overarching roguelike systems, Slay the Spire is one of the most approachable and compelling entries in recent years in both genres. It earned a 9/10 in our Slay the Spire review.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is an online multiplayer game that could be aptly compared to Payday, except with a medieval setting. Matches feature two teams of four players working toward stealing treasure. Not only do you have to worry about the other team, but there are also computer-controlled enemies to contend with.

Meanwhile, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is a remake of the 2003 platformer of the same name. While the remake was received rather poorly, at least you won't have to spend any money on it now. And if you have kids in the house who like SpongeBob, maybe they will like it.

In other news, PlayStation has revealed its revamped PS Plus service, which will include three tiers when it launches in June.
