Many are probably looking forward to the PS Plus the May 2020 free games reveal, which is set to take place on April 27. That’s true for any month, but it may be double this time as many PS Plus subscribers aren’t happy with April’s free games.
PS Plus has been back and forth between well-received and poorly-received months this year, depending on game selection. There’s ultimately no way to tell what PS Plus will deliver month to month, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t have their own hopes up. Many share their wishlists month after month, and sometimes they are accurate or close by sheer luck. Most of the time they are not. Anyway, here are some ideas that would be good to see in May or possibly on PS Plus.
May 2022 PS Plus Free Games – Immortals Fenyx Rising (PS5)
Sony generally aims, it seems, to get at least one PS5 game in each selection, although day one PS5 games have come to a halt. This may also be partly due to the small group of PS5 games, but this will hopefully improve over time. A PS5 game that might work well on PS Plus is Immortals Fenyx Rising from Ubisoft. It’s a solid and hilarious single-player game that released in late 2020, so it’s not really too early for that.
It’s an open-world action-adventure game that uses the best of Ubisoft’s global design, with strong platforming elements, puzzles, and combat. Some have compared his stamina system to breath of the wild‘s, though they’re not accurate, and overall it has pretty strong reviews. It would make a good headlining title for PS Plus.
May 2022 PS Plus Free Games – Dark Souls Remastered (PS4)
Ring of EldenThe popularity of shows no signs of slowing down, but there are players who have reached the end, started New Game Plus and unlocked all the trophies for it. Without a doubt, he left his mark on the industry, and many will be curious to know what to follow him with. A tour of FromSoftware’s catalog would do, with games like Dark Souls, Demonic Souls, Sekiroand transmitted by blood all worth a first visit (or revisit).
Demon’s Souls or Dark Souls Remastered would be a good choice for someone choosing this route, but of the two, Demon’s Souls seems less likely to be on PS Plus as it was a PS5 launch title. With the general improvements in Dark Souls Remastered, it would be a good starting point to play all Souls games.
It would probably work fine, especially now, on the serve, but it’s worth noting that it has a pretty big hurdle. The only FromSoft games to appear on PS Plus are Demon’s Souls (PS3) and transmitted by blood, both of which are IP addresses owned by Sony. Generally speaking, games owned by Bandai Namco Entertainment do not appear much on the service. Ring of Elden could definitely change that and it’s just a wishlist after all, so hopefully it will happen someday, even if it’s not May.
May 2022 PS Plus Free Games – World War Z (PS4)
If there are two constants in the gaming industry, it’s that zombie games are a classic and shooters are beloved. Many games combine the two, and this formula has been iterated many times. World War Z finds himself in those shoes, and it’s a game that many are divided on. However, PS Plus would be a good way for him to reach a wider audience. With multiple locations, classes, intense battles, a working story, and a unique take on PvPvZ (Player vs. Player vs. Zombies) modes, this would be a solid addition to the lineup.
PS Plus subscribers receive a handful of free games each month.
