Hello r/PS4 users!
If the link above hasn't been updated, refer to the PS Store links below. If you live in NA, the games will appear as free later in the day.
We're back to "normal" levels with the PS+ Monthly Games. Still, there's some great stuff to grab this month, with a zombie theme on PS4 and an awaited sequel, available for its release on PS5 only.
Let's also remind that you can grab 9 free games this month through Play at Home: Subnautica, Enter The Gungeon, Thumper, Abzû, The Witness, Rez Infinite, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Moss and Paper Beast. And on April 19, Horizon: Zero Dawn will join the roster, alongside its DLC.
This thread will stay pinned for 48 hours before being unpinned.

Ride into a desperate dog-eat-dog world ravaged by a deadly pandemic as drifter and bounty hunter, Deacon St. John. Risk the threats of the broken road on the back of your trusty drifter bike as you face swarms of mindless feral Freakers – and equally terrifying humans. Unpredictable weather and different times of day and night can cause incredible danger and shocking surprises… and everything wants you dead.

The free games aren't showing as free during checkout, is this normal?

How can I benefit from the PlayStation Plus Collection on my PS4?
You can access the PlayStation Plus Collection by connecting your account with a PS5, and claim all the games on the PS5.
