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).
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.
