Mad Max, Trackmania Race Into April's Free PS Plus Games

Demolition derby.

It's a moto-heavy April for PlayStation Plus subscribers as Mad Max and Trackmania Turbo go free as part of PS Plus' monthly free games lineup.

On PS4, we have Mad Max from Avalanche Studios, the same company that brought you the Just Cause series. While the game released to fairly tepid reviews, Mad Max is actually really great and I highly recommend it for fans of the original Mad Max movies.

Then we have Trackmania Turbo which is basically the crazy, arcade racing game of your dreams. Sure, you won't be able to kill mutant scavengers in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but you can essentially race on your roller coaster track so that's got to be worth something.

Other games as part of this month's PS Plus free offerings include In Space we Brawl and Toy Home for the PS3, and 99 Vidas and Q*Bert Rebooted for the PS Vita. That latter will be a Cross Buy game with both the PS3 and PS4.

As a reminder, starting on March 8, 2019 PS Plus will no longer offer PlayStation 3 and PS Vita games as part of its PS Plus free games service. The PS4 monthly offerings will also remain at two and not expand to replace the lost PS3 and Vita titles, unfortunately.

If you're a Xbox Gold subscriber, Microsoft announced its own free games for April including critical hits like The Witness and Dead Space 2. So if you're looking for more than just cars this month and have a Xbox, it's worth checking out as well.

And remember to check into PS Plus starting in April to add the free games to your library before they disappear in May where they might be replaced by non-car games.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
