April’s PlayStation Plus games will be revealed next week (at the time of writing), and we already know that one of them is Oddworld: Soulstorm on PS5. But what about PS4? Well, there’s a rumour going around that strategic world builder Civilization 6 will be up for grabs — but the current evidence is a little shaky.
Basically, Civilization 6 is marked as a PS Plus title on the Japanese PlayStation Store, as reported on Reddit. There are also reports that the game is showing up as ‘unavailable’ in other regions, suggesting that something’s going on behind the scenes.
However, that part of the rumour is stopped in its tracks by the fact that Civilization VI is currently having a free-to-play weekend on PS4. If Civilization VI really is an April PS Plus game, then the timing’s definitely a bit off. As it stands, we think that this is just another in a long line of PlayStation Store cock-ups.
There's no better time than now to build your civilization! Play Civilization VI for free this weekend on PS4, Xbox One and Steam!
