These days, most consoles offer many online services that have to be paid for.
Since a lot of people in the gaming community have shown their reluctance towards subscribing to these services, companies like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo have constantly tried to come up with strategies that would give players the impression that these services are worth paying for. There is a lot of competition among the big players to sell their services. So, companies have been very persistent in projecting these services as the kind that offer good value for money.
There are reports of Sony working towards developing a Game Pass competitor that will have the features of both PlayStation Now and PS Plus. There is a very good chance of Sony making a formal announcement about it soon. At the moment, PlayStation Plus is the only major platform for PS4 and PS5 owners to get their hands on a bunch of free games made available every month. Since the last couple of years, March has been that month where a lot of free games have been released through this platform.
As per leaker Dealabs, the free games that will be released on PS Plus in the month of April are Hood: Outlaw and Legends, Slay the Spire, and SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated. While this is a rumor, one must remember that most of the leaks by Dealabs have turned out to be true in the past.
Hood: Outlaw and Legend is a multiplayer game that failed to create much buzz during its release but once it releases on PS Plus, there is a good chance of it doing well. That is because multiplayer games have tasted a great amount of success on PS Plus. SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated happens to be a remastered version of a much-loved game that is remembered fondly by many.
