Sony PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with a preview of the PlayStation Plus exclusive content for April 2012, which includes free Shank 2 and Shift 2 Unleashed and Ghost Recon Future Soldier Beta!
To quote: This April, we're preparing some great offers for PlayStation Plus that will make you think twice about going outside.
For starters, we're happy to announce the free games coming in April to Plus: PSN Game Shank 2 and PS3 Full Game Shift 2 Unleashed! You'll be able to get these titles free in Plus starting on April 3rd and throughout the month of April.
In addition, we've also got more free content including PSone Classic Silent Hill, PS minis Cananbalt, Farm Frenzy 2 and Mystic Garden, as well as PSN Game Frogger Returns.
Free games aren't the only benefit to Plus. Last month saw the exclusive early access to the much-anticipated PSN game Journey. This month, you'll be the first to try out Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier Beta!
Hefty discounts on the games you care about are always a part of Plus, and April will bring more discounts on content you love. New releases Wheels of Destruction, House of the Dead 4, and the debut of the standalone Grand Theft Auto IV: Episodes from Liberty City will all have discounts the day they're available to download from PlayStation Store!
You'll also want to check out sweet free Avatars from the PS Vita hit Escape Plan, as well as PlayStation Plus exclusive avatars and themes for The House of the Dead and Devil May Cry.
There's more to come in April that we can't quite talk about yet, but rest assured we'll bring you more news throughout the month on more great Plus content. If you haven't seen all that Plus has to offer for yourself, you can go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 and head to the PlayStation Plus section, or click here to purchase a voucher code online that will be emailed instantly to you to redeem in the PlayStation Store.
