April's free PlayStation Plus games lineup has been officially announced. We already knew that Oddworld: Soulstorm would be on the docket for PS5, but what else can subscribers look forward to?

Well, on PS4, we've got a rather surprising zombie theme going on. Days Gone, Sony Bend's open world adventure, is up for grabs alongside the solid co-op survival shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Two very good games, but there will no doubt be a bit of a kerfuffle over the inclusion of Days Gone, which is already one of the PS Plus Collection games on PS5.

While we're yet to review Oddworld: Soulstorm — stay tuned for that — we recommend the two other titles. In our Days Gone PS4 Review, we described the game as "open world comfort food":

Days Gone’s survival horror underbelly gives it just enough personality to distance it from the dozens of other open worlders already available. A dense selection of overlapping gameplay mechanics make for entertaining action, even if the title’s unremarkable mission design doesn’t always make the best of them. The story can drift, and the overall package isn’t quite as polished as its PS4 exclusive counterparts – but as far as gaming comfort food goes, you could feast on much worse snacks than this.

And we had similarly strong praise for "Rebellion's best game yet", which we awarded an 8/10 in our Zombie Army 4: Dead War PS4 Review:

Zombie Army 4: Dead War is one of the best co-operative focused games on PS4. Its meaty campaign boasts of impressive level variety, a superb control scheme, and enjoyable gameplay mechanics while a Horde mode tests your abilities to the max. Rebellion has crafted an experience with so much to see and do that it could take a group of players weeks to master everything on offer — a crowning success for this type of game. Zombie Army 4: Dead War is an absolute riot of a title that is just as cheeky as it is fun to play.
