These are the games you can play for free on PlayStation Plus this month

Grab The Surge and Conan Exiles in April

You might not love the idea of paying for a PlayStation Plus subscription, but that £50 a year brings a rather solid bounty of free games. Did you know?

Each and every month, Sony trots out a new selection of games you can download for free all month and then keep and play forever, so long as you maintain your Plus subscription. It used to have PlayStation 3 and Vita games, too, but now Sony is focusing solely on PS4 titles.

Looking for a heads-up on which games you can grab right now and soon ahead? We've got you covered: these are the UK's PlayStation Plus freebies for April 2019, which will be available to download starting 2 April. And if you didn't grab March's free downloads yet, then scroll further down for a quick look at those titles.

Still available through 2 April

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (PS4)

One of the all-time greatest first-person shooters gets a fresh coat of paint in Activision's Modern Warfare remaster. And if you're not keen on the more futuristic or over-the-top elements of recent Call of Duty games, the multiplayer here is still legit.

The Witness (PS4)

Hailed as brilliantly original by some (and incredibly frustrating by us), The Witness is a gorgeous puzzler that finds you exploring a mysterious island to solve its many challenges. It's tough and can be obtuse, but now you can try it for the low, low price of free.
