Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta coming in April for PlayStation Plus members

PlayStation Plus members are entitled to a number of games as part of their subscription. In April, Plus subscribers will be able to download Shift 2 Unleashed, Shank 2, Frogger Returns, Canabalt, and the very original Silent Hill.

While this content alone makes April a banner month for Sony's premium subscription service, there is an extra bonus that should serve as a cherry on top for Plus members: access to the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta.

The long-delayed third-person shooter is now coming in May, giving beta testers an early look at the game. Oddly, the beta was originally meant to be exclusive to Xbox 360, for players of Splinter Cell Conviction.

In addition, Plus members will get an exclusive demo of The House of the Dead 4, as well as Farm Frenzy 2 and Mystic Garden from the Minis program. Members also get free avatars from Escape Plan and a free House of the Dead 4 dynamic theme.

Full game trials of Grand Theft Auto IV: Episodes from Liberty City, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, NHL 12, Saints Row The Third, Disney Universe, The Cursed Crusade, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition will also be available in April. Finally, Plus members will also get their usual free Qore download, as well as additional discounts. For the complete list of updates, check out the PlayStation.Blog.
