With March firmly behind us, PlayStation Plus Essential tier members have a handful of new games to look forward to.

Here are your free games for the month of April:

  • Immortals of Aveum
  • Minecraft Legends
  • Skul: The Hero Slayer

There's also an added bonus for Overwatch 2 players in a mega bundle that comes with a Legendary Beekeeper Skin for Sigma, a Legendary Art Deco Skin for Symmetra, seven Epic Skins, and five Battle Pass Tier Skips. Check out the PlayStation Blog for the full breakdown of what's in the bundle. Because it's a lot!

But back to the free games! First is Immortals of Aveum, which is EA and Ascendant Studios single-person FPS. You play as Jak, a battlemage who's fighting to save the world of Aveum. It's spell-based combat and will give you Call of Duty vibes, but in a fantasy setting. You get access to 25 Spells and 80 Talents and it's honestly a fun twist on the FPS genre, especially if you're not a CoD person.

Next up is Minecraft Legends, an action-strategy spinoff from the original series where you defend the Overworld against Piglin hordes. It'll give you access to online multiplayer for up to eight players. There's not much to this game that adds to the strategy genre of games, but if you're a fan, you'll enjoy playing this one.

Last up in April is Skul: The Hero Slayer, a 2D rogue-lite that has a nice mix of platforming and fast-paced combat. The map constantly changes and you grow your arsenal of abilities. These abilities have their own attack range, speed, and power, and it's fun to try to figure out the best two to equip to make your way through. You can also switch them on the fly as well, which is nice if you're struggling to make it through a certain area.

April is definitely a quieter month for PlayStation Plus members compared to March, and it's still been fairly lackluster as of late. We can only keep our fingers crossed for a stronger May.
