All three games will be available to download and play from April 6th until May 3rd.
Are Zombies Coming?
According to an "active member" of the French-Language version of HotUKDeals, both Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War could be on the way to PS Plus as free games next month.
Of course, this should be taken with a huge grain of salt as the source didn't share where they uncovered their information. However, they are allegedly quite a reputable source.
With rumours that Civilization VI also being added as a PS Plus game and Oddworld: Soulstorm being a confirmed title... Could this be the best PS Plus line up of all time?
Is Civ VI On The Way?
We haven't got the official announcement just yet, but an eagle-eyed Redditor has spotted something on PlayStation's Japanese storefront which could hint at the next game to be joining the April 2021 PS Plus line-up.
According to the screenshot below, Sid Meier's Civilization VI could be the second free game to be coming to PS Plus in April 2021.
There are reports that Civilization VI is due a free-to-play weekend at some point in the next 30 days, so this could be due to that. Alternatively, the free-to-play weekend could be cover for the PS Plus addition.
Only time will tell whether this strategy game will be added to PS Plus.
Line-Up Reveal Coming Soon
With it being just over one week until the PS Plus April 2021 games are due to go live, we expect the line-up to be revealed imminently.
Between now, on March 29, and tomorrow, the games that will be free next month could be revealed, so keep an eye on Twitter, YouTube, and the PS Blog.
PS Plus April 2021 Release Date
Every month, PlayStation announce their PS Plus titles on the last Wednesday of the month.
This month, the last Wednesday of the month is the last day of the month. With PS Plus games often going live on Tuesday, this leaves one date open for April 2021's PS Plus games release: April 6.
Also, Oddworld Soulstorm is coming out on April 6. With this being a PS Plus game, we're pretty confident that we'll be looking at April 6, 2021, as the release date for April 2021's PS Plus games.
It's worth noting though, that we don't know for sure what the release date is. All of the above is just based on past trends and predictions.

We're confident in its' accuracy, but something could change.
What are we all getting on April 6th, though? Well, we know for sure we're getting Oddworld Soulstorm from Oddworld Inhabitants.
In addition to this, from March 28th, the Play At Home Initiative is offering up nine games and Horizon Zero Dawn is going to be free from April 19th as an additional title for this promotion.
- Enter The Gungeon
- Rez Infinite
- The Witness
- Astro Bot Rescue Mission (PSVR)
- Moss (PSVR)
- Thumper (PSVR)
- Paper Beast (PSVR)
- Horizon Zero Dawn ( From April 19th)
As for the other PS Plus games? Only time will tell. We think Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, No Man's Sky, and Metro Exodus would all make great additions to the service but we don't know anything else for certain.
