Sony has revealed the games being added to PlayStation Plus in May, with yet another nice surprise for PlayStation 5 owners alongside the two regular PlayStation 4 games that we expect.
The three PS Plus games for May are:
All three games will be available from 4th May to 31st May.
Wreckfest is coming to PS Plus exclusively for PlayStation 5, the new generation upgrade having been announced back in March. It’s a nice freebie and a great game, but it’s surprising on two fronts: this would have been a paid upgrade from the PS4 version that is now being given away for free with PS Plus, and it was originally announced with a 1st June release date. Unless that release date has changed, this could be a full PS Plus exclusive for the first month.
Update: We’ve had it confirmed that the retail and digital PS5 release, as well as the paid upgrades from the PS4 version of Wreckfest are still taking place on 1st June. Everyone can obviously grab the PS5 version of Wreckfest prior to that date via PS Plus, though.
Wreckfest on PS5 promises a whole host of visual improvements, including:
- Dynamic dirt on vehicles
- Improved shadows, particles, and environment lighting
- Higher resolution textures
- Increased amount of foliage
- New visual effects for skidmarks
- DualSense haptic effects
- Much faster loading times
Looking back on its original release, we said in our 9/10 Wreckfest review:
Wreckfest is a surprising triumph in blending the best that sim and arcade racers have to offer in an explosive and visually gratifying package. A few visual issues and overly aggressive AI do little to spoil one of the best driving games of 2019.
Alongside that we have the WW2 multiplayer shooter Battlefield V, a step back to the origins of the series that, while a decent shooter, was overshadowed for fans of the franchise by balance changes made after launch and after significant content updates. There’s sure to be plenty more interest building in the Battlefield series once more, however, with the announcement of Battlefield 6 expected soon. Perfect timing to give away the last game.
There’s also Stranded Deep, a survival game in which you must do your best to not die after being stranded in the Pacific Ocean after a plane crash. You’ll craft, build shelter, try to find food and more.
Don’t forget that there’s still time to add April’s games to your library, which included two PlayStation exclusives and a whole lot of zombies:
