Sony has announced what free games PlayStation Plus subscribers will be getting for April, so let’s get right to it.

PlayStation 4 owners will be able to download Never Alone and Tower of Guns for free, the latter of two also being cross-buy compatible with the PS3 version. PlayStation 3 owners will get Dishonored and Aaru’s Awakening, the latter of the two will also be cross-buy compatible with the PS4 version. Lastly, PlayStation Vita owners will receive Killzone Mercenary and MonsterBag.

Sony has had quite the few months for its free game lineup for PS Plus members as we’ve seen Injustice: Gods Among Us - Ultimate Edition, Transistor, and Valiant Hearts become available. April’s lineup feels a bit lackluster in comparison as the only big-name game is Dishonored, although it’s only the PlayStation 3 version.

On the other side of the spectrum, Microsoft has doubled its efforts in April by offering twice the amount of games for its Games with Gold promotion. Comparing the two platforms’ free games lineup, we believe Microsoft wins this month’s showdown, but not by much as both Gears of War: Judgment and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag are pretty big titles to offer for free.

      I was excited to play Dishonored, but it's the PS3 version :(

      Dangit.

      I've been looking forward to trying Never Alone since I saw that first trailer.

        Same here. I have Dishonored on Steam but I'm interested in how well it was ported. This is another great month for Plus.

        It's an interesting game. Not the best thing in the world mechanically, and it's very short, but the documentary that you unlock as you play is a really cool idea. The whole game is a cool experiment when you frame it in its development context, actually.

          i enjoyed it. It IS quite short. The documentary unlocking, as you play, was really cool though. I found myself wanting to get through the next section just so i could watch more of the doc.
