At the beginning of 2017, the PlayStation Plus subscription is running in its newest lineup, which means you can count on new games to arrive on May 1st before the month ends. It is also worth noting that the games list for the month of April included a plethora of first-time titles, including Ghost of Tsushima, a new game from the makers of Sucker Punch.

Sony’s PlayStation Plus service is one of the most popular subscription services for gamers, offering discounts on downloadable games and other perks. This month’s line-up for Plus members is a mixed bag, which should please some PS Plus subscribers but disappoint others. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from Sony’s next month.

Today we are going to take a look at the latest PS4 games on the PS+ Games list for May 2017. If you are looking for a new PS4 game and haven’t already read the full article then please click on the link below.


May begins next week, and PlayStation Plus members will get access to two fantastic games: Abzu and Tales from the Borderlands.

Abzu is an underwater adventure game that was released in August 2016 for PS4 and PC. You play as a diver discovering aquatic life. We played it and felt it was a fantastic way to lose yourself.

 Tales from the Borderlands is an episodic adventure from Telltale Games and Gearbox Software that flawlessly captures the tone and humour of the Borderlands series while also keeping you on edge with the decisions you make for the characters you’ll love after you’ve completed all five episodes. 

PS4 players will have access to the free games coming to Vita users thanks to the cross-buy scheme. Laser Disco Defenders, a bullet-hell shooter by Bounds Games, and Type: Rider, a platformer from Ex Nihilo, are both available on the PlayStation Vita. 

Blood Knights, a hack-and-slash action game from Deck13 Interactive, and Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants, a simulation game by Gaming Minds, will be available to PlayStation subscribers.

Next Tuesday, May 2nd, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download all of these free titles for their respective platforms (Or Wednesday, May 3, for those in Asia). 

With that in mind, don’t forget to grab the April games before they become available.
