PlayStation Plus Free Games for April 2019

PlayStation Plus free games lineup has picked up The Surge and Conan Exiles for the month of April 2019.

Keeping up a good enough track-record so far with their free monthly games lineup, PlayStation Plus is giving hope to their monthly subscribers to look up for some decent titles to bring by the end of the month and they haven't messed up just yet.

Last month, PS Plus members got their hands on first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and puzzle platformer The Witness. If not matched enough with that, April 2019 is not looking for disappointing you at least.

Before jumping into what we are having on our hand for next month, let's take a quick look at the announcement video.

This month, suit up for some sci-fi action experience in a hardcore role-playing title The Surge by developer Deck13 Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive. It paints a dark future of humanity and offers you a lot of exploration as part of gameplay.

You play as protagonist character Warren in a dystopian future where he wakes up after a horrible surgical experience on his first day at work only to find out his entire workplace in ruins and been taken over by revolting robots.

Next up, we have a survival game titled Conan Exiles on our plate by developer/publisher Funcom that is set in the fictional world of Conan the Barbarian. Player character takes on a journey after being rescued from a death sentence by Conan himself.

Each time, a player starts with a character that has nothing but a single piece of cloth and then goes through a customization process of determining gender, voice and even religion before eventually heading on to a vast danger-filled hostile land.

We still have some time to grab onto those two games from PlayStation Plus lineup for March 2019 to pump into some classic FPS action or indulge ourselves within a mesmerizing world of The Witness to have fun solving unique puzzles.

We would also like to note that PlayStation Plus subscribers are now getting an extended cloud space of a whooping 100GB from Sony Entertainment for their saved games, which earlier was a small percentage of 10GB storage.

Conan Exiles Out Now

Before discussing details of Conan Exiles, let's take a quick glance at what it offers to players in this short clip below.

After being rescued by Conan, your player will begin a journey of survival in the Exiled Lands. Exploring these hostile lands is critical because it constantly throws sandstorms, swamps and volcanoes at you. Then there are a lot of mountains as obstacles but luckily you can scale them all, much like another open world game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from Nintendo. Aside from saving your own skin, you will go looking for food, fight monsters and build your empire.

Basics of Survival

The game’s open world offers you to wander around in many different locations, where they can find various armor and weapons to outfit themselves. A dynamic weather system is one of the most fascinating aspects of the game’s ever changing environment. If you do not dress up in accords, you can either get a frostbite or sunstroke. The basics of survival include making a campfire for cooking your meat to avoid food-poisoning and even a system for crafting.

A tactical combat system which is fast and brutal as it allows you to perform deadly combos on your enemies. You can use hammers, daggers or swords to land your blows but also try to emphasize on dodging and blocking incoming attacks to become a master combatant. As soon as you master these above, you will become an engine of destruction. You will level up and your powers will increase as you play through and make progress. While unlocking powerful perks, be thoughtful of what favors you most.

Building a Kingdom

Massive open world of Conan Exiles is full of dangers and opportunities in every corner as it slowly unfolds. The powerful in-game building system will let you build a simple home for living from a whole city. Throughout the treasure filled dungeons and puzzles, you will eventually have a face-off for boss battle at some point. Defense will also be a vital part of gameplay when monsters and other residents of Exiled lands will come looking for trouble on your doorstep.

Funcom's open world survival title Conan Exiles is already out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can choose to go solo in single-player, work together in co-op or even PvP or PvE servers as you like. Since Marvel Comics has recently acquired rights for and is releasing a new Conan the Barbarian comic-book series that will come out in January 2019, this is a great time for any Conan fan out there.
