The second free PlayStation Plus game of April 2021 appears to have leaked online, mere days before the official reveal. We already knew that the upcoming Oddworld: Soulstorm would be made free to PlayStation 5 owners with a subscription to PS Plus. Now, a leaked listing seems to confirm Civilization VI.
As spotted over on the PlayStation Plus subreddit, the iconic strategy game appeared on the Japanese PlayStation Store as a PS Plus freebie over the weekend. While Civilization VI would certainly be a welcome addition to the PS Plus lineup, there are some caveats worth noting before getting too excited.
The first is that Civilization VI is not showing up as a free game on the Japanese store anymore. Not for everyone, anyway. Heading there now simply shows the game at a heavily discounted price. This weekend just gone also saw a free trial for Civilization VI on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. That could well be what the listing was indicating. It'd certainly be an odd choice to hold a free weekend and offer the game for 75% off days before making it a PS Plus freebie, but stranger things have happened.
The PlayStation Plus free games for April 2021 are expected to be officially announced on March 31, so we don't have much longer to wait until we know for sure.
In the meantime, there are no less than nine great free games that PlayStation owners can download right now without the need for PS Plus. Simply head over to the store and you can claim the following: Abzu, The Witness, Enter the Gungeon, Subnautica, Rez Infinite, Moss, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Paper Beast, and Thumper.
Horizon Zero Dawn will also be joining that stellar lineup in just a few weeks. The AAA open-world adventure will be added to Play At Home on April 19, and you'll have until May 14 to claim it.
