While Oddworld: Soulstorm is coming to PS5 players, we now finally know that Days Gone and Zombie Army 4 are joining the lineup for April - so the leaks were right.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War | PS4

Original Story Follows:
The PS Plus April 2021 free games are set to be announced later today, 31st March!
We've had some great titles in March, including Final Fantasy 7: Remake and puzzle game Maquette, although the former isn't getting access to a free PS5 version (Boo!).
Still, Sony has been absolutely flying with PS Plus games since PS5 launched. We've had Destruction All-Stars and Bugsnax, both PS5 titles, and we already know that Oddworld: Soulstorm will be part of April's lineup.
With the Play At Home initiative now live, Sony is offering Ratchet and Clank for free from March 1 - so if you haven't already got it, be sure to snap it up before the month is over.
Here's everything we know so far about the PlayStation Plus April 2021 games, including all potential predictions, rumours and leaks.
When Will PS Plus April 2021 Games Be Announced?
Traditionally PS Plus games have always been announced on the last Wednesday of the month at 4.30 pm on the dot.
The announced titles then become available to download from the PSN store on the first Tuesday of the month.
Some months this means the games arrive a bit earlier. But some months, it means there's a slightly longer wait than normal, such as this month.
Due to the way the days have fallen in the month, Sony will announce the PS Plus April 2021 free games lineup on Wednesday, March 31.
When Will PS Plus April 2021 Come Out?
Again, the date new PS Plus games become available is like clockwork, with the new games available to download from the PSN store on the first Tuesday of the month.
Looking ahead, the PS Plus March 2021 free games will be available to download on the PlayStation store on Tuesday 6 April 2021.
PS Plus April 2021 Leaks
March 28 - Over the weekend there's been plenty of talk about a possible leak which suggests that Civilization 6 may be a part of the April lineup.
This is based on fans spotting that the game is appearing on the Japanese store as a free game with the PS Plus symbol.
Although, it's possible this could be yet another PlayStation store mistake. The game is no longer appearing as free, and it's possible it could be linked to a free trial.
Even then, we've seen that sometimes games in Europe do not always match those given away in the Japanese PlayStation store.
So whilst there might be a lot of excitement over this particular 'leak' we wouldn't take it as gospel right now.
PS Plus April 2021 Deals
There aren't a great number of deals out there right now, but we'll be sure to keep scouring the web.
For three month subscriptions, you can get one from Amazon for £19.99.
