Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19 are Your PlayStation Plus Games for May

Build the metropolis of your dreams or get to tilling the land as you embrace an agricultural lifestyle.

Two very different lifestyles will compete for your time thanks to next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup. Challenge yourself to design, then maintain, your ultimate metropolis in city-building strategy sim Cities: Skylines. Want a break from the city life? Take in the country air as you turn your hand to agriculture in Farming Simulator 19.  

Let’s take a closer look at both games. 

Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition

Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19 are Your PlayStation Plus Games for May

Do you have what it takes to develop a small, bustling community into a sprawling megacity? In Cities: Skylines, the acclaimed city builder sim by Paradox Interactive, you make the decisions that will see your city flourish or fail. You’ll need strategic smarts to keep your burgeoning ecosystem from collapse, ensuring your ever-growing populace stay happy and the industries that are the lifeblood of your expanding metropolis continue to thrive.   

Farming Simulator 19

Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19 are Your PlayStation Plus Games for May

Stressed by the bustling city life and eager to tackle a more sedate livelihood? Rural escapism awaits with Farming Simulator 19! Developer GIANTS Software has packed in a wealth of agricultural pastimes to lose yourself in as you set out to maintain a homestead. Harvest crops, raise livestock, tackle forest, ride your own horses…or just jump behind the wheel of your John Deere tractor or one of over 300 authentic farming vehicles and go for a drive.  

Both titles will be available to download from Tuesday, May 5, until Monday, June 1.

Last Chance! Grab April’s PS Plus Games

As a reminder, you’ve still got until Monday, May 4, to download this month’s PS Plus games. Quick wits, fast fists and inventive use of weaponry are essential to survive the danger-filled, globe-trotting journey of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, while nerves of steel and precision driving are essential to roar to championship glory in racing sim DIRT Rally 2.0.

  • Interesting…

    • Indeed.

      PS+ has been phenomenal with games like Uncharted 4, Dirt Rally 2.0, BioShock Collection, Sonic, Shadow of the Colossus, Yakuza Kiwami, MLB ect.

      Uncharted Collection and Journey were also recently free as part of the Covid-19 initiative. Ppl NEED to remember that.

      However, this lineup is not good, nor does it appeal to many ppl as it features two building Sims. I normally don’t complain and PlayStation is there place to play, but imo Sony needs to at least replace one of these with a more well rounded title. The Ezio Collection, Youngblood, Scholar of the First Sin, Sinking City, Remnant, AC Syndicate/Unity/BLK Flag, Dying Light could all be gotten for cheap and any one would be more acceptable.

    • hahahaha. We get these 2 games. Horizon Zero Dawn goes to PC. And firmware 7.50 bricked a lot of PS4s. I love the PlayStation brand, but I find these recent events to be interesting and “funny”.

    • What a joke!!!

    • Two games that are likely not highly owned and look fun to play. I’d consider this a good selection. Definitely better than adding games like Uncharted which everyone owns.

    • Please let it be April’s fool

    • Almost heaven, west Virginia…

    • -Did you see new ps plus games?
      Farming SIMULATOR and cities skylines.
      -but they are not game
      come on this joke is not funny
      -really! watering lettuce is realy enjoyable

    • Ok. I get it. Every month can’t be a good month. Let’s see you make up for it next month. Btw, can you look into getting Fight Night Champion on the PS4. Thanks

    • I’ve never complained about free games.. But two sims?

    • At the time when people needed it most, this is the weakest offering in the history of the service. People are bored senseless, they don’t need tedious chore games! Farmers literally have an alarmingly high suicide rate! It is unfathomable to me that anyone thought this was a good idea ever, but right now it honestly feels like a slap in face. GTFOH with your farming simulator

    • … guess this will begin a new future

    • I don’t NEED to remember anything.. I pay good money for this crap

  • Guys… come on.
    You can do better than that.

    • The person who leaked Dying Light and Dark Souls Remastered must’ve known about this line-up and tried to hype all of us up for disappointment LOL.

    • Very… Very… Very… VERY BAD CHOICE! WTH!?

    • I mean they aren’t 2 games I already own but really? Who’s idea was this. I’m sure there are 100 Indy games that could have made the cut. I’d rather have that soccer game that got cut before.

  • Yikes that’s an awful month. Farming Simulator really?

  • The phrase “less than zero” comes to mind for some funny reason.

  • Bruh 😐

  • Aprils fool is April 1st, not May.

    • Tomatoes and lettuce , here we go
      Already started garden on balcony during quarantine, may be will find some noice information about growing dill.
      Wtf Sony (

  • Dont think I will like this months offerings. Maybe I can find something on ps now to keep busy.

  • Talk about variety lol lol. One of the worst lineups in awhile. Really two sims couldn’t mix it up.

  • Really…already have these on PS Now, and just like previous months, nothing different between the services.

  • Well I finally pulled the trigger on Cities Skyline after seeing it go off and on sale a few times, I love the game so I dont mind giving them money at all, but it does make this particular PS+ announcement sting.

    Especially with that fake Dying Light rumor….man that would have been awesome.

  • Whaaaat??Worst Plus Games ever Sony!

  • Lol. The leak was fake. Meh month but oh well.

    More PSVita game sales please.

  • Yikes, I just picked up PS Now and both these games are already on there.
    I know the free games are an added bonus of PS+ but I must admit I am a bit surprised by this month’s games…

    • I’m in the same boat. I hope whatever gets added to ps now for May will make up for plus a bit. Btw, I think Vampyr is very underrated. Without ps now I probably would never have bought it thanks to so many bad reviews.

    • Good to know about Vampyr, I need to check that one out.
      I see Dontnod Entertainment worked on development of it and I really enjoyed their game Remember Me (would love a remaster of this one!)

  • You already know the Farming Simulator grind is gonna be real

  • Two sim games together? Well at least i don’t own either of them.

  • That’s one big OOF coming from me

  • I’m a huge advocate of Sony and nearly every month the PS+ games are phenomenal.

    Recently we’ve gotten Uncharted 4, Shadow of the Colossus, Dirt Rally 2 and other greats, but this lineup is utter trash. Farming Sim and City Scapes? Seriously? Terrible.

  • You’re a month late on April Fools.

  • When the price went up and 4 games were removed per month we were told that it was to raise the quality of offerings. This is a very good example of how that goal has not been met.

    • Oh please the quality has been great but every so often we do get a crap month like this.

    • Yeah, now we only get 2 games and these are the games? Terrible choice. Also, we used to get a lot of extra discounts on sales, now is rare when that happens.

    • Cities skylines is a very old game and both have limited appeal. This compared to 6 games per month?

    • Fact vs fiction, Sony never said anything about the quality going up it was just random people, anyone who actually thought the quality would improve is gullible and most likely needs a better source to get their gaming news, in fact you should simple aim for “anything but fake news”

    • bootlicker

  • Guys. I’m not one to usually complain about the Plus offerings. But Farm Simulator?! FARM SIMULATOR?!

    …seriously?

    Have we reached the bottom of the barrel of PS4 games already? This is just pathetic.

  • lol. (by the way the leaks are always better than the real thing…)

  • I’m bored to death :((((

  • (sigh)

  • Please, someone tell me this is a bad taste joke

  • lol so much for Dying Light and Dark Souls eh?

  • This is the first time I am truly disappointed by a PS Plus line up.

  • Ooooooo the cry babies are gonna fill up oceans because of this lmao

    • This is my favorite comment. That’s all it is, is a bunch of whining babies. Always. You will never be satisfied, regardless of the lineup. If you have a problem with the games they offer, DON’T SUBSCRIBE. Sony doesn’t owe you anything.

    • Chill out. It’s a paid for service, so feedback can and should be given.

    • The price of PSPlus went up and they removed the additional games we were getting. The offered discounts are rare.

      How about, instead of being an arrogant prick, you understand that people are mad they’re being charged MORE and getting less than they used to.

    • @StylishComa. The games each month are FREE. People don’t have a right to be mad, because PS+ has only ever been an online service.

    • @Jaiszon11 yeah a monthly fee is totally a free service. How is it free in your eyes?

    • @Jaiszon11

      PS3: Online was free no free games every month.

      PS4: Online costs $12 per month but it’s okay, you’ll get two games of our choosing per month

      If we look at this purely from the changes made. We’re all now paying $12 for games we don’t want. Personally I’d rather have no free games and just get my online back.

    • Good Job Sony!
      way to recognize that:
      A) Actual adults are stuck at home with time to play games
      B) Many children are home and you put out 2 games that don’t include gratuitous violence as part of their core gameplay

      I think that the value of PS Plus is outstanding. for $59.99 (if you pay full price, and who does that?) or $5 a month, we get 24 games a year, online play, and the ability to share our games with friends who don’t have that title. Maybe some of the games aren’t exactly to my individual taste, but if I find more than 1 a year, I’ve already saved money.

    • Exactly kdoglavs! COD MW has been sucking up all of my time lately but these look like a nice change of pace. Not every game has to be kill, kill and kill some more. Cities Skylines looks worth playing to pass some time.

    • This. Og Post is spot on.

    • If they didn’t put online multiplayer behind a paywall BELIEVE ME I wouldn’t give them a penny for this tripe.

  • As someone who’s been with playstation for such a long time I think this lineup is unacceptable. Not only are the games in this lineup incredibly niche games which only appeal to certain audiences but both games belong in the simulation genre meaning there is no variety in this selection. April fools has already passed so I’m not sure why this choice was made at all.

  • LOL!!! Wait Sony your serious?!?! *SMH* Guess it’s back to playing through my backlog, and my new Xbox One X which will be getting RDR 2 through Xbox Game Pass on May 7th.

  • just when i thought plus couldn’t get any worse it has. there is nothing remotely decent this month on plus. with everyone being home we could have gotten better games on plus this month. hopefully next months games will be better.

    • PS+ had been incredible up until now.

      Uncharted 4, Dirt Rally 2.0, Shadow of the Colossus, Sonic, BioShock, and Firewall the past couple of months. And we got the Uncharted Collection as well as Journey for FREE.

      I know this month is horrible but don’t exaggerate, PS+ and Sony have both been tremendous up until now. Even games like Darksiders III, Edith Finch, Yakuza, and XCOM 2 were given not too long ago. TLoU, Detroit, MLB, Nioh c’mon!

  • HAHAHAHA!!! Really Sony…Not renewing this ridiculous service again

  • As if we all aren’t already bored enough. This line up is pish.

  • I’m sorry but with most people stuck at home I feel these ps plus games are heavily lacking. I mean farming simulator? really? I just feel this month is gonna be super lackluster.

  • *grabs popcorn*

  • ouch, probably the worse month ever.

  • Boa tarde
    Gostaria de expor uma insatisfação geral com os jogos da plus desse mês
    Uma grande parte de seguidores de paginas relacionados ao PlayStation estão criticando os jogos do próximo mês
    São dois jogos que aqui no Brasil não tem público
    Peço encarecidamente que revejam os jogos do mes de maio
    Pois os comparativos com a concorrência esta desleal
    Do outro lado esta tendo Red dead Redemption 2 um grande jogo
    E pra nós vocês não estão disponibilizando nenhum jogo AAA
    Tendo em vista que o valor da assinatura aumentou duas vezes esse ano
    E vocês disponibilizam jogos sem expressividade nenhuma
    Obrigado pela atenção

    • Amigão não adianta reclamar, são essas porcarias de cities skylines e farmim simulator na americana tambem. Eu crente q a noticia do dark souls remastered era real, tantos sites de games divulgando ai vem a sony e joga um balde de agua fria na gente.

    • não tem como comparar game pass com plus, amigo. gamepass os jogos vão embora depois. PLUS SE COMPARA COM GOLD. E ambos serviços esse mes de maio foram um cocôzinho. To irado!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Mas tem que reclamar sim, Yohmaru_EX. É direito dele, é direito nosso. Já houve meses que a gente reclamou muito e eles mudaram um dos jogos. Ou deram outro adicional.
      Nosso direito de consumidores posto em prática. ;]

    • Brendo brendo brendo rico suave. Also spaghetti

  • I am very dissapointed.

  • Worst month ever

  • These were top -billing PS now titles not long ago (2 month for cities Skylines). How about some variety!

  • Are you kidding me? What a garbage month. Fine time to do it too. Sony should be giving everyone a refund on PS Plus.

    • Yeah. Eat ****, Sony!

    • Wow.
      You know, art is subjective.
      Because one doesn’t enjoy a genre is nowhere near saying the genre is bad.
      Imagine all the games you like that you wouldn’t have for free if it weren’t GIVEN to you, every month. Multiple, free games. Every month.
      Spoilt children.

    • Why? Because YOU don’t approve of the games? Lol, take the good with the bad and stfu.

  • So, months ago you took out PES19 because “it was not for everyone” (or something like that), really? That’s the most popular sport in the world.

    But what about “Farming”? We all eat food that come from farms right? I normally don’t complain but this is awful.

    Cities is OK, but it plays better with mouse on PC.

    • This has got to be a joke… right?

    • Between the awful PlayStation plus and Playstation Now services I feel like a move to Xbox or PC is not far away. Try releasing a selection that people can choose from. Every month I either have the games or they are already on Playstation Now. Eurgh…

  • Wow… What a weird choice of games.
