PlayStation Plus' April Instant Game Collection includes Zombi

Along with Dead Star, I am Alive, and Shutshimi.

PlayStation Plus' Instant Game Collection - i.e. free games for subscribers - has been revealed for April.

Zombi without U.

On 5th April PS Plus subscribers will gain access to Zombi, i.e. the PS4 version of Zombi U. PS4 owners will also receive the team-based space shooter RPG Dead Star, the new game by former Metroid Prime developers at Armature. It supports 10vs10 online play with a high degree of customisation among its various skill trees and upgrades.

PS3 players will receive Ubisoft's post-apocalyptic survival horror game I am Alive, which feels like an experimental precursor to The Last of Us, along with tower defense game Savage Moon.

On Vita, Sony is handing out procedurally-generated shmup Shutshimi, a game I once described as resembling "a WarioWare game made by Treasure", and the sci-fi arcade puzzler A Virus Named Tom.

Before these go live on the 5th, don't forget to snag March's offerings, which includes Galak-Z, Broforce, Super Stardust HD, The Last Guy, Flame Over, and Reality Fighters.
