The May 2018 PlayStation Plus games announcement has just been revealed by Sony. We’ve seen a steady increase in the quality of games over the last few months, with the likes of Deus Ex – Mankind Divided, Bloodbourne and Mad Max included since the start of this year. One thing is for sure, the May 2018 PS Plus games lineup is equally as impressive!
May PS Plus Games
The first game announced is the PS4 exclusive Beyond: Two Souls.
This free game will be coming at a perfect time. The reason for this is that Detroit: Become Human demo, which went live yesterday, created a massive buzz around Quantic Dream and their upcoming projects. Beyond: Two Souls was a hugely successful game thanks to the unique interactive, drama based gameplay which we have come to love and know all to well from Quantic Dream. Starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, Beyond: Two souls was even nominated at the Tribeca Film Festival. That should serve as a prime example of how beautiful this story-driven game truly is.
The next May PS Plus game title we will receive is the revival of a true fan favourite, Rayman Legends. This is the fifth title in the Rayman series and showcases Ubisoft Montreal stunning use of vibrant colour pallets. But incredible visuals are not all this game has to offer. Whilst enjoying this iconic platform style experience, you will meet some new faces whilst perhaps be being helped by some old classics. Expelling the dark forces and attempting to free the taken princesses and teensies will provide you with hours of fun. If all this already doesn’t sound like too much fun, Rayman Legends allows you to play with friends via the online co-op mode.
PS3 and PS Vita (May 2018 PS Plus Games)
A PS plus monthly reveal would not be complete without the addition of games for those who play on the PS3 and PS Vita.
- Risen 3: Titan Lords – PS3 title. You have been robbed of your soul. Upon your quest and exploration of the world, you must join one of three factions. Each has their own unique consequences so do not make your decision lightly.
- Eat Them! – PS3 Title. A fun cell-shaded game where your only concern is how much destruction you can inflict on the city. Eat, chomp, mash and destroy your way through this game.
- King Oddball – PS Vita (Cross-buy with ps3/ps4). In this game timing is key. Use a combination of skill and precision to swing a boulder to and fro. With a simple press of a button, the boulder will be released and start hurtling toward the targets. A highly enjoyable game for all ages.
- Furmins – PS Vita. A physics based game across 108 levels where you have to guide the Furmins up, around, over and across this beautifully designed game. Remeber this game is more than simply reaching the end goal (basket), it is about moving objects to aid the Furmins to get there with the most points.
