PS Plus April 2023 Games – Are They Worth Playing?

Rage war against frogs, ensnare custodians in your traps, and take Sackboy on an adventure with these PS Plus titles.

Sony just recently revealed their line up of PS Plus titles for April 2023, and it seems fans of challenging level design will have their hands full with these three games.

Every month PlayStation Plus aims to bring games that players will enjoy and can add to their library to maximize the value they receive from the service.

The PlayStation Plus April 2023 line-up includes Meet Your Maker, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Tails of Iron.

  • Meet Your Maker – PS4 & PS5
    • Players must face the creativity of other players in this post-apocalyptic first-person building-and-raiding game where players design the levels.
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure – PS4 & PS5
    • One of the most iconic PlayStation heroes, Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet), returns for a new 3D multiplayer platforming adventure.
  • Tails of Iron – PS4 & PS5
    • This hand-drawn story transports players on a war-plagued adventure with punishing combat as they reclaim the Rat Throne.

Meet Your Maker – PS4, PS5

Meet Your Maker is worth a try due to its unique take on user-generated content. Try the base building, and see if you enjoy the combat and exploration.

This game is probably unlike any game you’ve played before. The basic premise boils down to building your base, setting up defenses, raiding other bases, and upgrading everything.

The concept is simple, but mastering it is where the fun comes in. Every level that you face is another Outpust built by another player. You’ll need to set out and gather materials from other Outposts to upgrade your base.

In the same vein, players will need to build up their own defenses to protect themselves from other players.

With the influx into the community from PS Plus, you can expect to see plenty of other players learning the basics. It’s a great time to jump in and raid some Outposts.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure – PS4, PS5

Sackboy: A Big Adventure is definitely worth a try if you’re a fan of platforming cooperative multiplayer games that you can lose yourself in for a few hours.

In this 3D platforming adventure, players can explore Craftsworld and rescue Sackboy’s friends solo or with the help of their friends.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a spin-off of the popular LittleBigPlanet series that was known due to its user-generated content and platforming adventures.

This spin-off aims to bring all the magic of the platforming that kept the LittleBigPlanet community thriving for years and add a story with enough challenge to keep players engaged.

Any series fan should try this if they already haven’t, but bring a few friends to pass the time with.

Tails of Iron – PS4, PS5

Tails of Iron is worth a play for any fan of 2D souls-like games that are itching for a new challenge in a beautifully hand-drawn work.

This is one of the more unique offerings of the PS Plus April 2023 line-up.

It features a detailed world that resembles a feudal rat kingdom in which players must guide Prince Redgi to reclaim the Rat Throne.

The combat is fun, and players will enjoy the simple systems that allow them to dive deeper into the world and learn about its inhabitants.

As you wage war against the frogs, you’ll begin to rescue some of your rat companions, who will restore your kingdom.

It’s a fun story with beautiful aesthetics that players should try if looking for a challenging 2D role-playing game with a unique setting.
