Sony has officially confirmed the PlayStation Plus free games in April 2023, including titles across the PS Essentials tier.

Each month, Sony offers free PS Plus games to new and existing subscribers of its subscription service. While the available game sometimes disappoints players, Sony has struck gold several times with its PS Plus additions.

To gain access to free monthly games, PlayStation users must have an active subscription to PS Plus under the Essentials package – the most basic tier.

On May 9, 2023, subscribers will lose the ability to play classic PS4 titles like God of War, Persona 5, and The Last of Us due to the shutdown of PS5’s PS Plus Collection. Furthermore, players have until April 3 to add Battlefield 2042, Minecraft Dungeons, and Code Vein to their library.

Here are the monthly titles PS Plus subscribers can download starting April 5.
