Here’s April’s PlayStation Plus Lineup

It’s hard to compete with last month‘s PlayStation Plus offerings, which somehow included both Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank, but Mad Max is a nice, out of left field follow-up.

The Kotaku review wasn’t kind, but if you’re just looking to drive around in a post-apocalyptic world and gawk at some beautiful, dusty sunsets, it has you covered.

Here’s the rest of April’s PS Plus lineup:

PlayStation 4

  • Mad Max
  • TrackMania Turbo

PlayStation 3

  • In Space we Brawl
  • Toy Home

PlayStation Vita

  • 99 Vidas
  • Q*Bert Rebooted (Cross buy with PS3 and PS4)


  • Wahey, another good month! I mean I’m not very excited by Mad Max but have heard some good things. However Trackmania has been on my wishlist for a while now so looking forward to giving that a shot.

      • I didn’t mind it, it’s like open world destruction derby. Not the most engrossing game ever but it was fun for a while.

    • Mad Max is okay if you think the Fury Road is the only Mad Max film, For some reason, The game set in San Francisco? I personally love the first movie.

    • Mad Max is a bit polarizing, i am playing it now and can understand why some people don’t like it as it leans heavily into “do this repetitive side activity” to get all the stuff you need to upgrade your car (certain upgrades are locked and you need to do almost every side activity to unlock those bits). Personally i am enjoying it (other than the minefields, they are the worst) as the car combat is fun and the on foot combat is very Batman-esque

        • Yeah i did have the dog, the problem is that you are forced to take out another car to clear the fields which you can’t fight in (the minefield in the dump was fun with three cars on my tail and a sniper taking potshots), you can’t fast travel in and is slower and handles worse than the Opus. I agree they are quick and easy to do with the dog, i just would have had more fun if i could have done them in the Opus.

    • I’ve been holding out for Mad Max as I’ve heard good things and love open world games. I got Trackmania on Xbox (Games with Gold) a little while ago. I found it a bit frustrating as the cars don’t handle like any other game I’ve played. Takes a while to get used to.

      Games with Gold is great next month with The Witness and AC:Syndicate.

      • I too played Trackmania and found it really frustrating on the xbone because the split screen mode wouldn’t do a playlist of tracks you had to back right or everytime just to select a new track. Maybe I missed something but it certainly wasn’t user friendly

  • Oh neat, I’ve been waitin for a big game I haven’t actually purchased.
    I had Metal Gear and Bloodbourne already and grabbed Deus Ex from the bargain bin like a month before it popped up.

  • Awh man, was kinda hoping for something I hadn’t already got again, but no regrets. Mad Max is bloody brilliant, beyond atmospheric, and deserves the love.

  • This is an awesome choice. One of those games that has AAA value but was low-profile enough that I’m sure plenty of peple skipped it.

  • Mad Max was a grindfest with a whole list of faults but I enjoyed it immensely. It made a desolate wasteland look beautiful and had a wonderfully bleak atmosphere.

  • I’m glad I didn’t read Kotaku’s review (since I played it only last year) because I LOVED Mad Max, it was incredible fun with incredible atmosphere. You can eat the maggots off freaking dried out desert corpses, do I even need to say more?
