PSN+ members getting Shank 2, Silent Hill, and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta in April

PlayStation Plus members are in for some heavily armed, pants wetting, futuristic freebies next month. This week, Sony detailed its April PSN+ members perks on the PlayStation Blog, listing PSN's Shank 2, PSone Classic Silent Hill, and early access to Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier as the month's main attractions.

The free downloads will be available April 3, however the date of Ghost Recon's closed beta has yet to be posted. Other PSN+ goodies include no-charge copies of the PS3 games Shift 2 Unleashed and Frogger Returns; as well as PS Minis Canabalt, Farm Frenzy 2, and Mystic Gardens. If dressing up in virtual clothing is more your style, next month's membership treats also include free Escape Plan and The House of the Dead 4 Avatars, as well as sales on Devil May Cry skins.

On the topic of ravenous mutants and deadly headshots, PSN+ members will gain access to an exclusive demo of The House of the Dead 4, which will be offered at discount to PSN+ members when it releases on April 17 (read: House of the Dead 4: PS3-exclusive port has Move support, trailer and release date).

Sony says it has more to announce for April that it “can't quite talk about yet”. If we had to guess, it'd be the first episode of The Walking Dead video game (last see in The Walking Dead: see first footage of gameplay in new video), but that's more wishful thinking than anything else.

    So... I have a beta key that I got from Splinter Cell Conviction. Do I get in any beta?

    That settles it. Plus, here I come.

    How about those who got their beta invitation by purchasing Splinter Cell: Conviction?

    My PSN+ subscription has definitely payed for itself, 3 times over. I'm stoked for Shift 2, Silent Hill and Shank 2. All I need now is a new copy of Legend of Dragoon... Then again, it might be best that doesn't happen... I'd never leave my house again.

    I've gotten so much free content for being a PS+ user that the $50 price tag has paid for itself. These goodies right here will just add to the already great service. Shift 2??? Yes please!
