PlayStation Plus new free game is one of last year's best releases

PlayStation Plus new free game is one of last year's best releases

Don't miss out on this title a second time

PlayStation’s annual Days of Play event is underway and with it comes a massive selection of free games to get stuck into.

It looks like 2024’s Days of Play event is set to be a big one for PlayStation with the company promising some “oversized drops” arriving for PlayStation Plus.

Check out the release trailer for Dredge below!

With EA Sports FC 24 sticking around until 18 June despite originally being a May offering and titles such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition arriving on 7 June (extra tier) and indie title Before Your Eyes on 6 June (premium tier), it is set to be an exciting few months.

However, one title not to miss out on is Dredge which will be free for all PlayStation Plus Extra members as of today, 29 May.

First released in 2023, Dredge is a fishing video game by Black Salt Games. Although a “fishing video game” doesn’t sound the most exciting, this Lovecraftian inspired adventure sees players take on the role of a lone fisherman who encounters some mysterious creatures and people across his journey in an open-world archipelago.

Having played Dredge myself, what seems like a simple indie title soon hits you with a sinister undercurrent as you trawl the depths of the seas to find fish, materials and trinkets for the inhabitants of the local, strange towns.

With said inhabitants seemingly harbouring a secret, it is up to you to discover why they are eager to forget the past but when you encounter a deadly creature in the nighttime waters, you start to wonder if it is indeed worth the risk.

Sitting at an “overwhelmingly positive” rating on Steam, Dredge is not one to miss out on if you are looking for an indie title with a dark, ominous twist.

Luckily, it will be free to grab for all PlayStation Plus Extra members as of today.
