Every month, PlayStation Plus offers gamers a wide range of great games, but for this month, that actually makes one of them pretty ironic.

In recent months, offers from the PS Plus Sony's can be compared to a stone rolling down a hill; It seems that nothing is going to stop Sony from delivering hit after hit on PlayStation Plus. Maybe that's how PS Plus will remain in the realm of discussion along with Xbox Game Pass, maybe it's to continue to build hype for the PS5, and maybe one day that rock will hit the wall. That day, when it comes, will not be April 2021.



What PS Plus usually gets right is hitting the tone and relying on patterns of success. For example, in late 2019/early 2020, Sony added one big game/niche game every month. It worked, but as Sony apparently used the PS Plus to power the PS5, it shifted to a new standard: broad appeal. Every game offered from mid-to-fall 2020 so far has been about solid games with a plethora of genres.Keep Scrolling To Continue ReadingClick the button below to launch this article in quick view.

That is, you want to have something that appeals to many people with different tastes. The April 2021 PS Plus games almost break this pattern as two of them are zombie games, but they are different enough in tone that the appeal remains. In April 2020, subscribers receive the PS5 Launch Day Oddworld: Soulstorm game, a survival horror adventure game Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Days Gone's inclusion, reception, and more proved to be somewhat ironic.

Firstly, its inclusion on PS Plus isn't the only reason Days Gone, a 2019 game, made headlines this month. Recently, a Bloomberg report indicated that Sony wants to ditch the smaller, riskier games to focus on its blockbusters like God of War and Spider-Man. On its own, that's a lot to unravel, but it seems like one of the first victims of this mindset is actually Days Gone. Deacon's Journey St. John wasn't perfect, resulting in a rather lukewarm reception at launch. That said, many consider it one of the most underrated hidden gems of the PS4 era. For Sony, though, it seems like it wasn't about what Days Gone could do, but what it did.



The same report reveals that Sony dropped a pitch of Days Gone 2 made by Bend Studio in 2019. In other words, the game's franchise potential was dead before fans knew it and shortly after it took off. Since this was revealed, many have expressed disappointment with the decision, while others have praised the original and made arguments for a Days Gone 2. Love for the franchise has been so strong lately that, while the director of Days Gone hasn't publicly confirmed or denied it, he's been "enjoying" the news and social media reaction posts. He claims it's just a thank you to the love for the game, so fans should consider this at face value.
