Drawn To Death will be free for PS Plus members when it launches in April

Video game luminary David Jaffe and his uniquely titled development studio The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency have announced that their upcoming competitive PlayStation 4 shooter game Drawn To Death will be launching in early April and that it will be free for all PlayStation Plus members.

Drawn To Death, which was originally envisioned as a free-to-play game before internal feedback led Jaffe and his team to switch over to a paid format, will launch on April 4 at a $19.99 price point. However, if you happen to be subscribed to PlayStation Plus, you’ll be able to download and play the game entirely for free.

In a recent PlayStation Blog post, Jaffe expressed his excitement over getting to offer Drawn To Death as a free PS Plus game, saying that it will undoubtedly help the game build up a vibrant and robust community of players:

“I wanted to find a way to invite all of you PS Plus members into this experience and give you a look at what really excites me about games these days. We’ve been working on Drawn To Death for nearly three years, and over time, it really has become this robust, highly competitive game — and we haven’t even talked about a lot of the new features yet. Needless to say, I thought you could all help us build an unbelievable community for the game.”

It’s not entirely clear whether Drawn To Death will be permanently free for PS Plus members or if it will only be free for the month of April. It will most likely be the latter, in which case interested fans should make sure to add it to their PS Plus free games collection while they can.
