PlayStation Plus Free Games for May 2017

Runtime: 0:56    Author: sonyplaystation    Category: Trailers

Sony announced their game line-up for PlayStation Plus members this May. If you’re subscribed to the company’s online service, you’ll get access to several different titles across three devices: PlayStation 3, 4, and Vita.

Here’s the full lineup:

  • Alienation (PS4)
  • Tales from the Borderlands (PS4)
  • Blood Knights (PS3)
  • Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (PS3)
  • Laser Disco Defenders (PS Vita)
  • Type: Rider (PS Vita)

Players should get access to their titles on May 2. New Zealand’s games may differ due to region differences. We’ll update this story if that happens to be the case.

Excellent. I've been hoping to finish up boarderlands. I would have preferred azbu over alienation though.

Great ps4 games. Shame I already bought and played through Tales of the Borderlands, so Alienation it is :)

Yeah for some strange reason US gets Abzu and Europe get Alienation instead. Not sure the reasoning, hasn't been a different l lineup for quite sometime between regions.

Oh nice. I've been wanting to play tales of the borderlands for a while now. Play the first chapter demo and really liked it.

Tales from the Borderlands alone makes this a great month. Amazing game, can't recommend it highly enough.

A couple of heavyweight free games this month, very impressive. Abzu was a game which caught my eye months ago. Perhaps stateside will get Alienation in the future and we will get Abzu then? Fingers crossed.

For a moment I actually thought that PS Plus had become free, nevermind just the usual false advertising

Thats not being negative, its called reality. You might wanna try living in it sometime...
If you actually think they're 'free games' then don't pay for PS Plus and see how many games you get, its basic logic that ignorant fanboys fail to realize.

I pay for Plus purely for the multiplayer aspect, so for me, the games are a bonus, and thus free.

so you justify bullsh*t practices you don't need to pay for, Sony and Micro make you pay membership fees just because they can, and know you will pay them.

So much salt over a sub that cost around $2 a week ( Or even less if you buy year ). Also, there are games that appear on there that I would never have played otherwise ( Rocket League is a good example ) and it can also help smaller developers get their name out, not to mention the discounts that crop up for PS+ members..

Everyone always points the finger at Sony for rubbish PS+ offerings sometimes, but really it's the publishers and developers are the ones who choose whether or not to put their game on PS Plus

LOL you're priceless!! If you bothered to stop whining for a second and actually clicked the link you'd see that Sony "fixed" the wording (months ago) and the word "FREE" doesn't appear anywhere on the blog post or in their video!! Congrats, you got them to change by throwing tantrums! You just didn't stop to notice! :-D

NZG could update their headline but at this point they're probably just trolling you! ;-)

You pay to access them and so NOT free, yes $2 a week bla bla I get it its a great deal but it costs you money to get them. Its a part of PS Plus that you choose to pay for.

Come on, it's no different to free samples with something you buy, or buy 1 get 1 free, or most of the other situations where free is used.

PS+ existed without the games, then they threw in some free games. Then the games became central to the service so Sony rejigged the wording for people who want to be pedantic.

But to many like myself PS+ is the discount/MP/online storage service and the games are freebies. That's why I don't really care if the games are ones I have no interest in, which is rare, because they are freebies and I'm getting my moneys worth without them.

On topic: good month :P

You just consider them free when clearly they are not.

I think ps+ was only for the games on PS3. It was only required for online on PS4. It was always a rental service..

It was originally cloud storage and discounts/exclusive themes. The instant game collection came later.

Hot damn you people need to get over it, who cares if it's free or not, what matters is that you either have access to these games or you don't, and people who have ps plus will now have access if they didn't already, no need to get all offended by an article

Alinenation is not my cup of tea but i'll give it a bash. Tales was awesome and I would solidly recommend. Not sure on the Vita offerings, come on and chuck in a PSVR game/Experience!

How about 'free DLC' for some games? Would you still call that free since you have to pay money for the game in order to get any use out of it?

This is why gta 5 will probs never get any singleplayer dlc, people keep buying shark cards for "free" dlc, im sad because gta's singleplayer dlc's are amazing. but i guess im glad others pay for my updates, by their own choice.

Why do we have 2 x PC Master Race trolls in a Playstation post getting triggered by the word "Free". Come on guys... just move along, If you guys sent less time b*tchin in things that are unrelated to you and just not important you'd have more time gaming. Would love to see some stats to see how much time is spent on Reddit and forums compared to actually playing games for these Pro Master Race plebs.

In all seriousness though if it was reported on properly there wouldn't be an issue but the back and forth creates ad views so at least someone's winning.

Sweet! I had Alienation in my cart a few weeks back when it was $12 or so. Glad I didnt pull the trigger. Not gutted about Abzu being US only as I did buy that a few months back.
