April 2020’s PlayStation Plus games have been announced, and it’s official: the big leak was absolutely correct. For those of you who missed the news, PlayStation Access — an official PlayStation YouTube channel — posted a video that revealed April’s PS Plus lineup a whole week early. Whoops.
Anyway, we’ve now got confirmation. Subscribers get two PS4 games for April 2020: amazing action adventure Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and the tough but very well crafted Dirt Rally 2.0. Assuming you haven’t played either of these titles, it’s a cracking month.
In case you’re out of the loop, we’re very fond of Nathan Drake’s last ever adventure, as we described it as a “stunner” in our 10/10 Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review:
A fitting end for one of PlayStation’s most famous franchises, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End sits alongside The Last of Us at the apex of cinematic action experiences. Naughty Dog’s ability to tell engaging tales is unmatched, with Nate’s final chapter expertly balancing bombast against genuinely relatable themes. It won’t redefine the genre quite like Uncharted 2, but the developer’s boundless ambition means that this is a bigger, better, and more beautiful adventure than ever before.
But it’s worth mentioning that DiRT Rally 2.0 is no slouch either, as it drove away with a 9/10 in our review. Here are our thoughts on the simulation racer:
Following on from its predecessor, DiRT Rally 2.0 is the pinnacle of rally on PlayStation 4. The simulation handling is brutal, but a lot of fun to learn and brilliantly satisfying to conquer. The raw driving experience is highly intense as you travel at insane speeds, always verging on disaster. While it’s missing some of the more casual-friendly features of DiRT 4, the suite of modes and options will keep any rally fan going for a long time. Even if the sim label puts you off, we’d encourage you to take this for a test drive; it’s easily one of the most thrilling racing games in recent years.
Both games will be available to download from the 7th April. What do you think of April 2020’s PS Plus games? Feed us your thoughts in the comments section below.
