In 2021 alone, Sony gave away Control, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Battlefield V, and Star Wars: Squadrons. But can the growing collection of free PS Plus games be as impressive in 2022?
InIn April, PS Plus members can grab Hood: Outlaws & Legends, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, and Slay the Spire on PS4. There’s also a PS5 version of Hood: Outlaws & Legends if you’ve managed to snag a PS5.
