Every month, Sony offers a number of PlayStation games to those subscribed to its premium PlayStation Plus service.
The two PS4 games coming to PS Plus in April are Conan Exiles and The Surge, which will both be available to download for free starting April 2nd.
Note that PlayStation Plus now only features PlayStation 4 games, as February marked the final month that the service included PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita games. Instead, Sony has confirmed it will increase PS Plus’ cloud storage capacity from 10GB to 100GB.
