Summer drought isn’t quite on us yet, but thankfully whether you’re gaming on a PS3, PS4, Vita or XBox there are enough free games to get us through Easter at least. This month’s offerings then:
Drawn To Death, PS4 – highly stylised third person shooter from Twisted Metal’s David Jade. It’s a bit nuts.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, PS4 – couch co-op neon battleship flying action. You can play this via Share Play if you don’t have any real life friends!
Invizimals: the Lost Kingdom, PS3 – third person adventure has you transforming into Invisimals (animals?) to fight robots. This is fairly poorly received critically but at least you get to make your own mind up.
Alien Rage – Extended Edition, PS3 – not a good month for PS3. A first person shooter lacking exciting gameplay, ideas and graphics. Ouch.
10 Second Ninja, PS Vita (crossbuy with PS4) – insanely fast side scrolling action, where you must fight Nazi robots. Get them!!
Curses ‘n Chaos, PS Vita (crossbuy on PS4) – 2D wave based arena brawling action. Actually looks quite good fun – a pixelated style should bring back some old school memories.
Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One – Available April 1 to April 30 – the AAA launch title is now free for all. Highly taunted and then realised as over hyped, I actually quite enjoyed this. Story mode gets a bit tiring but I loved the arena mode.
The Walking Dead: Season Two, Xbox One – Available April 16 to May 15 – classic story telling from Tell Tale rounds up a great month for Xbox One. Even if you haven’t played Season One, I’d recommend this.
Darksiders, Xbox One & 360 – Available April 1 to April 15 – basically Legend of Zelda but set among the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. More emphasis on combat options, but the gameplay design choices will feel familiar. A bit of a cult hit.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Xbox One & 360 – Available April 16 to April 30 – Gina chapter in the Ezio storyline, Revelations refines the leaps (no pun intended) made by Assassins Creed 2.
