We're nearing the end of April, and it's going to be... well, you know, and Sony has shared the next games coming to PlayStation Plus. Unlike some previous months, May's lineup of companion titles is as varied as it's been in a while, including a racing game, a first-person shooter, and a survival game.
As has been the case since the PlayStation 5 launched in November, May's games include a PS5 title in Wreckfest and two PS4 titles in Battlefield 5 and Stranded Deep. According to the PlayStation Blog, the new selection will be available to download on May 4 and will remain so until May 31.
The April lineup, which includes Zombie Army 4: Dead War, Days Gone, and Oddworld: Soulstorm, is available to download until May 3.
The inclusion of Wreckfest in May's selection of PS Plus games is a little interesting, given that the next-gen version of the game is set to launch on June 1, but it gives PS Plus members a month's head start in the race. on PS5. Wreckfest originally released on PC in 2018, then on PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.
Battlefield 5 needs no introduction. Although it was released in 2018, it is the latest entry in EA and DICE's first-person shooter franchise. It takes the series back to WWII, and while we called it a “solid” entry, we also said it “a certain flair present in previous titles.” Either way, including BF5 in PS Plus is a big win for shooter fans who haven't checked it out yet (this editor included).
Stranded Deep is like playing the Tom Hank 2000 Cast Away survival vehicle – in all the right ways. There are even a few references that survival fans will appreciate along the way. Stranded Deep was released for PC in Steam Early Access in the past days of 2015 before finally finding terra firma on PS4 and Xbox One in 2020. Although it's one of those games that's still in EA on Steam all these years later, it's a solid one and well worth it. entry into the survival genre that all fans can appreciate.
