Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by VP, PlayStation Network

Hi everyone,

Are you ready for two more rounds of new PlayStation Plus content? Well, April continues to be the biggest Plus month ever in terms of content offerings with some huge discounts and free games coming your way over the next two weeks! As announced on the PlayStation Europe blog last week, we’ve secured a deal with Ubisoft to offer all Plus subscribers 20% discounts on the games Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (available now), Outland (coming April 26), and Beyond Good and Evil (coming this May). And if you didn’t notice it, the much-anticipated Steel Rain DLC for Killzone 3 became available yesterday, free for an entire month to PlayStation Plus subscribers (regular price $4.99).

Check out some of our highlighted offers below, along with the full list that follows.

Free Games and DLC
Killzone 3 fans can jump into the Steel Rain DLC featuring two all new multiplayer maps at no cost if they’re Plus subscribers.

Get ready to pick sides between Grunts and Jarheads because starting April 26 Crash Commando will be free for Plus subscribers!

And if battling live people doesn’t sound appealing, then be sure to check out Alien Zombie Death, also free on the 26th. Experience 14 levels of fighting alien zombies until they are, well … dead!

Huge Discounts
Red Johnson’s Chronicles: Episode 1 will be available two weeks early to Plus subscribers starting April 19 for $6.50. That’s a 50% off the regular store offer for the eerie point-and-click murder mystery adventure.

Housmarque’s stylistic side-scroller Outland will become available for $7.99 on April 26, marked down 20% from its full price.

Exciting Exclusives
The Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 – Full Game Trial is making its way to PlayStation Plus on April 26, so fans looking for a little strategy in their shooters (as well as some gorgeous backdrops) need look no further.

Very nice ! All stuff I don’t own . Thanks .


April 13th, 11:18 am

Im not that impressed as the UK plus members get alot of content for Free that we will never get here (ie: Home Hangout for Plus Members)and it seems as though each week they get a ps plus update. I have been following it closely to make sure that i am getting my money’s worth but so far I cant say that I have been. Beef up ps plus or get rid of it like ps rewards…

Any word on the PSOne Classic this month? Otherwise looking forward to the sales and Crash Commando!

MarkakaJin said:

April 13th, 11:22 am

I already got Comet Crash and Crash Commando. Frankly, the PS+ updates are alright but it needs to be more epic. Needs more free games and less of those PS minis.

Emerald_Swords said:

April 13th, 11:22 am

SWEEEET! Awesome, love ps+

DeathGazer said:

April 13th, 11:23 am

Loving all these Day 1 discounts. Will buy Outland and Beyond Good and Evil.

No interest in Crash Commando, though :/

MassaBR said:

April 13th, 11:25 am

Quick question: when does the Might and Magic discount for Playstation Plus expires?

Xer0Signal said:

April 13th, 11:25 am

A solid update, however, a quick question regarding the Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Full Game…

The disc release does not have Trophy support. Will this downloadable version carry Trophy support?

poodude said:

April 13th, 11:26 am

Nice. I’ll be subscribing to PS Plus later on this month to get the Killzone 3 DLC and Beyond Good & Evil discount. Also, has any pricing been revealed for the PS3 version?

KwietStorm said:

April 13th, 11:26 am

Finally a date on Outland. Can we get a date for Motorstorm now? And those Killzone avatars from the EU too.

good ^^

awww yeah! free avatars me like that/

The_FPS said:

April 13th, 11:35 am

Red Johnson and Ouland sound fun, and I will be playing some more Killzone very soon! Crash Commando I already have, but it is great fun and I might actually try to play a few games now that I know more people will have it. I will splatter everyones faces with sniper fire and bouncing nades!

Battlepope190 said:

April 13th, 11:36 am

Loving all the avatar additions, but seriously Sony; don’t go another 4 week stretch without adding them….

LeoMindfreak08 said:

April 13th, 11:39 am

Yes!! The PlayStation Plus subscribers need much more free content. This is a great step! Thanks!

androvsky said:

April 13th, 11:43 am

Abe’s Exoddus is a PS one import? :p

SpyDudeFX said:

April 13th, 11:44 am

When are we gonna see Plus exclusive avatars? As in avatars you can’t find anywhere else not exclusive bundles of avatars everyone can buy. Also when’s the Home content coming? EU Plus has a private space, emotes, rewards, clothing and more for their Plus. We have nothing.

SpyDudeFX said:

April 13th, 11:45 am

The games look great, especially Red Johnson Chronicles for 50% off. Good to see more new releases with discounts. Thanks Plus Team!

Comet Crash (Free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, regular price $1.99)
A Space Shooter for 2 Bucks! minis (Free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, regular price $9.99)

lol, I think those regular prices have been mixed up (I don’t think a game with ”for 2 bucks” in it’s title is 9,99$)

Chriscanuck said:

April 13th, 11:52 am

Crash Commando? that’s the free game? that sucks, i already have it… plus your only giving us 3 discounts for 1 week of playstation plus? gotta say quiet disappointed…. and rainbow six vegas 2??? really??? if i go on xbox live right now, i can digitally download some of their most popular titles including the halo series and many others… gotta say you guys just don’t match up to microsoft on the digital market

I am still a die hard playstation fan, but the more i check my xbox, the more i realize what they offer me for the money i pay to play on their servers….

change my mind Sony!!!

Senjutsu_Dav said:

April 13th, 11:57 am

Nothing for me, really. I’d prefer to skip all the minis since I never played one (tryed few, but they aren’t fun at all… looks like free internet flash games or iphones free games…), and instead receive more free games! =D. If possible it would be nice to have Dungeon Hunter for free, or Mushroom wars for free, or Plants vs zombies for free, hudge titles like that are nice, like when they gave Stacking, now That was nice!! I loved burn zombies burn! too! =D, and I like the sonic games we now have (I had all of those on my old genesis). I’m hoping for big titles for free in may and in june, since I didn’t take any summer sessions at the university. I’ll work and… play video games! lol. Ok ok, I’ll go outside more than play videogames (it’s summer after all), but I’ll still play a lot of video games too!

PlayStation Plus is still not worth buying yet.. IMO.

fijski8 said:

April 13th, 12:06 pm

yes, the minis are useless.

Link01 said:

April 13th, 12:14 pm

I honestly think you guys should focus on new features for PS+ members too. One of those features being the long awaited in game chat. The publicity would be great for now * especially right before E3

xBURROx said:

April 13th, 12:20 pm

And the KILLZONE 3 Avatars??? When are they gonna be released???????

protoklok42 said:

April 13th, 12:22 pm

People should stop hating on the minis, Vector TD and A Space Shooter for two Bucks are awesome. don’t knock em til you try em.

ChaseHammerJ said:

April 13th, 12:28 pm

im sorry but just when i was almost to the point into paying for PSPlus you pull some crap like RSV2….

that game was not fun at all i owned it for about 20 minutes before throwing it back at gamestop.


ABRipperXX said:

April 13th, 12:37 pm

So is Red Johnson Chronicle the 8-10 hour game they said it would be when it comes out? or is it half of that but in 2 episodes? Is it out first week in May for Non-Plus members at $12.99?


Capshot18 said:

April 13th, 1:15 pm

Good to hear I’ll be getting a discount on Outland.
Man, does that game look cool…

D-Squad3 said:

April 13th, 1:23 pm

More third party avatars please like anime, cartoons, movies etc.

TJF588 said:

April 13th, 1:29 pm

Oh, some new free avatars *feels lame liking that sorta thing*. Do like the discount on Mad Blocker Alpha, since IIRC,’s review was pretty favorable.

Still miffed that there was no follow-through on the e-mail I got for Red Faction: Battlegrounds, though it may be that I had to pre-emptively buy moar PlayStation Plus subscription (CAN I even do that, if I’m currently subscribed?) during a promotional period. Called support about it, and the guy was nice, but the response e-mail was unfavorable, so now that I’m off from work, I’ll see if I can get things cleared up for me via e-mail.

TJF588 said:

April 13th, 1:32 pm

@30: Hear, hear! Love me some minis actn, and them being small means I feel less daunted to dedicate time to them; I just play them when I want, for as long as I want.

TJF588 said:

April 13th, 1:37 pm

Sorry to triple-post, but it’s a shame Junebug Gench is getting a full-on take-down. One of the nicest-looking themes in my list…and part of the reason I joined PS+ was that even if my game subscriptions run out, the themes are mine to keep [hold of].

KeefRiffards said:

April 13th, 1:43 pm

Awesome! Gotta love free PS+ releases. To all those who say that Plus isn’t worth it yet….well, you are entitled to your own opinion but man, I was hesitant when I got my first three months subscription to try it out and haven’t looked back since. I couldn’t imagine NOT having it, and it is not expensive at all compared to the goods given out. I DO agree that more popular titles would be nice, and I am not too into the minis myself either. Honestly, I hate to hear myself say it, but I find myself ignoring them because of the lack of trophies. Hint hint, nudge nudge Sony? I am sure adding trophy support wouldn’t be tough with games like that. With that said, I am loving the free PSN games when we get them, the discounts are great, and the PS One classics are awesome too (again, would love trophy support, but that is asking too much, I know.). I find myself checking the Themes/Avatars section on a regular basis too. Would love to see those EU Killzone 3 avatars. Definitely could use a bit more than just a handful of Capcom titles. In the end, I am extremely glad I took the dive and purchased a subscription.

Just wanted to say thanks for the killzone DLC Sony. That’s the stuff I subscribe for most

Kirkpad said:

April 13th, 1:53 pm

Pretty sure Abe’s Exoddus isn’t a PSOne import.

As a PSPgo owner, the PSPminis are NOT useless. Pix n’ love Rush was actually really fun on PS3 too, among other games.

Nice showing of discounts and free DLC/avatars. I already have Crash Commando, but I don’t really care because I can’t expect PS+ to give me every game I don’t have for free. Comet Crash last month was a pleasant surprise, and the Genesis games are also brand new PSN games that I don’t have. Great stuff!

Chriscanuck said:

April 13th, 2:11 pm

Did everyone miss the fact that the Killzone DLC is only free for 1 month? after that month you gotta buy it lol fail sony

crunchmonkey said:

April 13th, 2:19 pm

$7.99 for Beyond Good $ Evil. Great news.

BTK88 said:

April 13th, 2:21 pm

Not to bad

dragon_night said:

April 13th, 2:27 pm

Is the name being changed to A Space Shooter for Ten Bucks now?

sid4peeps said:

April 13th, 2:32 pm


Did someone forget about the PSone game we are supposed to get each month? Last months was a do over…we already got it before…so it doesn’t count…

Yes, ADD trophy support to those MINIS, even the developers want trophies for their minis now, they held a meeting with you Sony about this !!! That’s the only problem with Sony, ever department NEVER listens to their customers…sorry, Sony Ericsson decided to bring the Android 2.3 release to the x10 phone, but besides that…we are getting less and less actual “good” stuff on PSN and just a bunch of Minis, time restricted DLC, OLD PSN releases that usually require us to BUY the addon DLC to get 100% for the trophies and less PSone Classics and Less Avatars etc…and rarely we get a good discount…


glad to see some people might keep playstation plus…but a lot of us see what M$ is doing over there…actually listening to their followers…


SoYoung said:

April 13th, 2:39 pm

Weak update. The couple last update for PS+ is not that good. Just very, very old ps3 full games and free psn games is just old Genesis games.

How about putting 2-3 full ps3 games like X360’s game on demand? Update content is too slow on ps3 I think.

Good stuff.

DonCalzone21 said:

April 13th, 3:06 pm


I think that means that the Killzone DLC will be free for a month then goes to its regular price…. If you downloaded it while it was free, you keep it. Your not all the sudden not gonna be able to play it in a month or get your account charged.

Mushroom Wars and Burn Zombie Burn were already free at one point for PS+ subscribers

Any chance of the first Portal game coming to PS3 soon? I would like to enjoy how Portal went!
