Sony have revealed the latest batch of classic PlayStation titles arriving on PlayStation Plus in April with MediEvil and Alone In The Dark: The New Nightmare leading the way.

The news comes from a post on the PlayStation Blog, where Adam Michel, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Director of Content Acquisitions & Operations, confirmed the list of games heading to the PlayStation Plus Premium tier on the 16th of April 2024.

MediEvil and Alone In The Dark: The New Nightmare will launch at the same time as Star Wars: Rebel Assault II.

While I prioritise coverage of the classic games that appear on PlayStation Plus, the monthly Extra updates also often contain a bevy of great titles for subscribers to enjoy, with April continuing that trend.

April’s PS+ Extra update includes a couple of well-received LEGO games with LEGO Marvel’s Avengers and LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame joining the service for plenty of co-op brick-building fun.

Elsewhere, Tales of Kenzera: Zau, the poignant single-player Metroidvania from actor Abubakar Salim releases day one onto PlayStation Plus Extra, as does Dave The Diver, the fishing RPG full of humour and gorgeous pixel art that will undoubtedly get its hooks into retro gamers.
