PlayStation Plus April Update - Demon's Souls Free Today, EPIX App Hits PSN

Sony has detailed the PlayStation Plus April 2013 update, revealing that subscribers to their premium service will find Demon’s Souls added to the free Instant Game Collection, along with a pretty sweet deal from the movie streaming service EPIX, when the PlayStation Store updates later today.

Released in North America back in October 2009, From Software’s Demon’s Souls is touted as the “ultimate hardcore RPG”, which is probably the most accurate description ever assigned to any video game. Players can expect to find a brutal learning curve, hundreds of hours of gamplay, and a unique online system that enhances the single-player experience by letting players leave hints and clues for each other.

In addition to Demon’s Souls, Sony also announced that the EPIX streaming app will hit PSN today, providing PlayStation 3 access to the company’s catalog of comedy shows, championship boxing matches, original content, concerts, and movies. To help kick off the PSN app, EPIX is offering all PSN users a free 14-day trial of their streaming service. Additionally, the company has announced that PlayStation Plus members will be able to stream a new movie every week for free, even if they are not EPIX subscribers.

Today’s PlayStation Plus update will also give subscribers and PSN users discounts on the following titles:

  • The Walking Dead Season Pass (Regular Price: $19.99; PSN Sale Price: $14.99; PS Plus Price: $10.49
