April 2020's PlayStation Plus games have been announced, and it's official: the big leak was absolutely correct. For those of you who missed the news, PlayStation Access -- an official PlayStation YouTube channel -- posted a video that revealed April's PS Plus lineup a whole week early. Whoops.
Anyway, we've now got confirmation. Subscribers get two PS4 games for April 2020: amazing action adventure Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and the tough but very well crafted Dirt Rally 2.0. Assuming you haven't played either of these titles, it's a cracking month.
In case you're out of the loop, we're very fond of Nathan Drake's last ever adventure, as we described it as a "stunner" in our 10/10 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End review:
A fitting end for one of PlayStation's most famous franchises, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End sits alongside The Last of Us at the apex of cinematic action experiences. Naughty Dog's ability to tell engaging tales is unmatched, with Nate's final chapter expertly balancing bombast against genuinely relatable themes. It won't redefine the genre quite like Uncharted 2, but the developer's boundless ambition means that this is a bigger, better, and more beautiful adventure than ever before.
But it's worth mentioning that DiRT Rally 2.0 is no slouch either, as it drove away with a 9/10 in our review. Here are our thoughts on the simulation racer:
Following on from its predecessor, DiRT Rally 2.0 is the pinnacle of rally on PlayStation 4. The simulation handling is brutal, but a lot of fun to learn and brilliantly satisfying to conquer. The raw driving experience is highly intense as you travel at insane speeds, always verging on disaster. While it's missing some of the more casual-friendly features of DiRT 4, the suite of modes and options will keep any rally fan going for a long time. Even if the sim label puts you off, we'd encourage you to take this for a test drive; it's easily one of the most thrilling racing games in recent years.
Both games will be available to download from the 7th April. What do you think of April 2020's PS Plus games? Feed us your thoughts in the comments section below.
I'm happy, I never finished uc4 and I love the dirt games so good month for me.
I own both and haven’t started one but still a cracking month. I did think we might get a lockdown bonus this month as goodwill gesture but it’s a corking month. Even if dirt is trying to sell the full priced game add on.
played and finished uc4 but definitely gonna give dirt a go.
Great lineup. Really looking forward to DiRT Rally 2.0.
Great duo of games this month
Great games for sure, I've had Uncharted 4 since launch and Dirt Rally 2 on Gamepass for several months now, so nothing for me but both are top titles
Nothing for me, but all who have not played UC4 are in for a treat! Happy gaming everyone, and stay safe!
Will give Rally a go for sure. Loved UC4 but holding out for Lost Legacy as that’ll be on Plus in a few months at this rate!
After the horizon zero dawn pc announcement i haven't played on my ps4
God damn it I hoped it wasn't too true I already own Uncharted 4 it's sitting right beside me on my shelf I don't care about racing games two bad months in a row even Xbox games with gold is a bad month
@Nixus237 At least Fable was good choice. The others though. Blech.
@koaeinferno yeah it is a good choice but I have Gamepass and it's been on there since launch I'll have it to own sure but I've played it so much
Excited because Uncharted online is going to be super active now
Uncharted 4 is a good addition, but I've already played it, so nothing for me this month, unfortunately.
@1_W1NG3D_4NG3L. I know right.he should sell his. His ps4.so people on pushsquare will have a good night sleep😒.wtf.word up son
Even though I already have Dirt Rally 2.0 and have no desire to play UC4 this is definitely a solid month!
Guidance please. Do I need to uninstall my Disc based Uncharted 4 content before downloading and installing the free PS+ version of the game?
I don't want to run the risk of having two versions of the game clogging up my drive or causing conflicts.
I'm presuming my saved will remain as they are separate files.
@The_ghostmen and this is the moment you've realized that you've reached peak-level fanboy lol.
I'll download Dirt. I haven't enjoyed a racing title since Midnight Club: LA. As an avid ND/PS fan of course I've platinum'd every Uncharted and put in thousands of hours into Uncharted 4 and TLOU MP.
@nathanSF Yes you will. It'll tell you that it's already installed and you'll need to use the disc in order to play. It also works the other way around. If you have digital and insert the disc you'll be told that you already have the game installed digitally. Also, yes again, saves will remain untouched and ready to use. I know all this from buying The Witcher III 4 times. First bought the game, then bought the GOTY edition. Then bought the regular digital, then they GOTY digital lol.
@Grimwood haha it was because I played my nephews copy of the game while he was staying with us but then when he went home I didn't get to finish it and never got round to buying it. I agree they are all great games, my first platinum trophy was uc2 when it launched on ps3.
Can't wait to get my Dirt on
@1_W1NG3D_4NG3L. Im from new york.and yes we are safe.i dont go out like i used to.but im having fun at home.movies and video games.you tube videos.tv showsand sitcoms comedy.threes company.different stroke.martin.good times.sanford and sons.saved by the bell.the Jefferson.the wayans brothers.married with children.etc.cant wait to see the steelers.and where are you from.are you getting the ps5 at launch.word up son
@Grimwood depends what you want. I find uncharted to be woefully lacking in gameplay. Everything feels on rails.
Here’s one that damn near everyone would download and try. It’s tiny (less than a gig), it’s topical, and it’d raise awareness about viruses:
Plague Inc: Evolved.
So what I mistook for the announcement and inattentively commented on last week (forgetting the calendar hijinks applied to the schedule yet again) was a leak? Ugh. At least it came from an official source, but shame on me still.
@1_W1NG3D_4NG3L. Make sure you got a lot of groceries.lots of water .orange juce.fruits is good also.yeah my backlog is huge.i got to many games.haha.im chilling like a villain.hows everything in the uk.stay safe playa.word up son
Don't own either. Downloading both. Thank you Playstation!
@Netret0120 this. I own UC4 but it's a great month because the online will be healthier now. It's just a shame Naughty Dog are the worst devs for post launch online support. IF their servers hold up it's always a great game to jump into
Makes a change for a leak to be correct...
If I didn't already have UC4, it would be an excellent month. I will add Dirt Rally 2.0 so its not a complete bust for me...
I don't have uncharted 4 anymore so this is a bonus for me this month, dirt 2.0 never played it so not sure what it will be like.
Only played through the awesome Uncharted 1 and 2 of the Nathan Drake Collection from a couple of months back so far, so having part 4 in the backlog is a real treat!
Dirt Rally 2.0 is a bit too hardcore of a racing game for my taste. I like the more realistic racers, but prefer them to be arcadey, like Gravel.
@AhmadSumadi Great. many thanks for this.
I'm really looking forward to this great selection of games
Already completed UC4 but it's obviously a great month for those that haven't. Absolutely couldn't care less about racing games but, again, great for those that like them.
It didn't matter what they were, though, since I have FFVIIR and am loving it. 😁
both games i want to play, i have an active PS Plus account, but someone hacked into my account, purchased a couple games on my linked payment preferences and changed the email. Basically stole my account and i can't get a hold of customer support by phone or by live chat.
I finished uc4, but I might play the full series again after p5r. Im not going anywhere anytime soon lmao.
Awesome! Great games and thankfully I had not gotten around to buying them yet. Stay safe everyone. Best wishes from California. Game on!
@grahamd It totally made me think of Colin as well. I miss that guy. RIP Colin McRae
Cant download uncharted 4 I had it when it first came out on disc and its saying I already own the multiplayer dlc currency oh well guess I shouldn't have traded it in years ago
When do these games drop?
It is April 7 and I cannot download either uncharted or dirt 2. I have a PS PLUS account but they are not showing up as free for me. I am in Canada. Any ideas?
