Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus April 2020 Games
With the global population staying indoors due to social distancing, it’s a perfect time for both Microsoft and Sony to gift their fans some great games for this month. Did they hit the mark with Games with Gold or PlayStation Plus for April? Well, maybe they will for you.
First up for Games with Gold on Xbox One is Project Cars 2 (April 1st – April 30th). This racing game is definitely more of the simulation variety than the arcade one. If you are a fan of the main Forza Motorsport series and can’t wait for the new game, Project Cars 2 might fill the void. In addition, Knights of Pen & Paper (April 16th – May 15th) is available for lovers of RPGs, especially Dungeons and Dragons. Not only do players get to control the party of adventurers, but even the DM, able to choose when to fight and when to retreat.
Getting to the Xbox 360 variety, one of the biggest Xbox exclusives has made its way to the GWG program: Fable Anniversary (April 1st – April 15th). This cult classic from over 16 years ago has been polished with a new coat of paint, and the world of Albion has never looked so good before. The other game is Toybox Turbos (April 16th – April 30th). Think Mario Kart but in a toybox setting. If it sounds like Micro Machines, that is because it is made by the same people. For those who want to have a local or online experience, this might fit the bill.
But what about Sony? Well first up is DiRT Rally 2.0. This is in fact the 7th game in the long lasting Dirt series, which originally spun off from the Colin McCrae driving games. Fans of realistic driving physics and gravelly terrains will find much to enjoy. The main attraction, however, is none other than Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. It was only three months ago that Nathan Drake’s original trilogy was available for free on PS4. Now players get to experience the conclusion of on the of the most prolific video game characters of recent history. Not to mention the mutliplayer isn’t too shabby either.
So what do you think of the lineup this month? Are you happy? Disappointed? Let us know in the comments below!
