Ubisoft’s Zombi free with PlayStation Plus in April

PlayStation Plus Free PS4 Games Lineup April 2016
Sony’s PlayStation Plus service will give subscribers access to free downloadable copies of Ubisoft’s first-person survival horror game Zombi and the team-based space shooter Dead Star for the PlayStation 4 starting in April.

Next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup will also deliver free copies of I Am Alive and Savage Moon for the PlayStation 3, along with a pair of indie-developed freebies for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV.

ZombiU was originally released in 2012 as a launch title for Nintendo’s Wii U before recently resurfacing on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PCs as Zombi. Taking place in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, Zombi offers tense first-person gameplay that focuses on melee combat and inventory management, as players must maintain an arsenal of powerful but fragile weaponry as they hunt for supplies and shelter.

The PlayStation 4 edition of Zombi features upgraded graphics and retooled gameplay compared to its Wii U predecessor. Zombi adds a collection of new melee weapons, a new flashlight item that increases environmental visibility, and revised inventory mechanics that replace functions previously mapped to the Wii U GamePad.

Also arriving for PlayStation Plus in April is Dead Star, which Sony describes as “a team-based shooter with RPG influence.” Developed by a team of Retro Studios (Metroid Prime) veterans at Armature Studio, Dead Star is an overhead-view shooter that offers 10-versus-10 multiplayer combat across procedurally generated battlefields.

Service subscribers will also receive a downloadable copy of Ubisoft’s post-apocalyptic survival title I Am Alive next month, along with FluffyLogic’s tower defense game Savage Moon. PS Vita owners can expect to receive free copies of Misfits Attic’s hacking-themed puzzler A Virus Named Tom and Shutshimi, a horizontally scrolling shoot-’em-up with a unique undersea aesthetic.

All of April’s featured PlayStation Plus games will be free to download for subscribers starting on April 5th.
