Free Games for May

Free Games for May

So, April's been quiet, huh? Of course, I'm kidding! Will you be preparing for Detroit: Become Human by playing through Beyond: Two Souls, or is this month's lineup another miss from Sony?

Not only a technical showcase in its own right, Beyond: Two Souls not only raised the bar for true-to-life visuals in the last generation but also broadened the scope for interactive narrative in gaming.

The sale includes games like Monster Hunter: World ($48), Danganronpa V3 ($48 on PS4, $32 on Vita), Gundam Versus ($36), NieR: Automata ($36), Persona 5 ($33), Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition ($40), and Yakuza Kiwami ($21). If you end up hating Beyond, you still have Rayman Legends, which is, full stop, one of the best platformers of all time.

In fairness, Beyond being part of PS+ makes ideal sense, when you consider that Detroit: Become Human is out next month. Rayman Legends will also be joining the line up in the month of May, giving you a colorful, lighthearted palate cleanser to play in between sessions of Beyond and the recently-released God of War.

If you love varied platforming challenges, hunting for secrets or bouncing along to a mariachi-styled reimagining of Survivor's Eye of the Tiger (think Guitar Hero meets high-speed platforming), then this might just be the very thing for you. Will you be downloading these new titles onto your PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, and what are you hoping to see in June's update?
