PlayStation Plus April Update Brings Never Alone, Tower Of Guns And More To Instant Game Collection


On the eve of April, Sony has announced the list of free games making their way to PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game Collection for next month in North America, which will include Tower of Guns and nordic adventure title, Never Alone.

As with previous months, April’s update will herald the release of two games per platform, and each of these titles will be available on PlayStation Store next Tuesday, April 7.

Entering the Instant Game Collection on April 7:

  • Tower of Guns (PS4, PS3)
  • Never Alone (PS4)
  • Dishonored (PS3)
  • Aaru’s Awakening (PS3, PS4)
  • Killzone: Mercenary (PS Vita)
  • MonsterBag (PS Vita)

As a bonus addition, the Japanese publisher also noted that quirky platformer Woah Dave! will be available to download free of charge on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita for the month of April. While it isn’t necessarily the best selection of content that PlayStation Plus has offered, there are some undisputed gems lurking within this update, not least of which is Arkane Studios’ Dishonoured, a critically-acclaimed stealth title that places a heavy emphasis on player choice.

For Vita owners, Killzone: Mercenary is arguably the best shooter available on the system — with Unit 13 coming in at a close second. But as with previous months, Tuesday’s update will mark the departure of numerous games including Valiant Hearts: The Great War and OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood, so if you are yet to add them to your download list, now is your last chance.

Leaving the Instant Game Collection on April 7:

  • Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty (PS4)
  • Valiant Hearts: The Great War (PS4)
  • Papo & Yo (PS3)
  • Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment (PS3)
  • CounterSpy (PS3, cross-buy on PS4, PS Vita)
  • OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood (PS Vita, cross-buy on PS4)
