  • Looking forward to playing both Battlefield V and Wreckfest!

  • That’s an OK month. At least I don’t have to pay for the Wreckfest PS5 upgrade now. Hope June is better though

    • Unfortunately PS Plus can’t make people happy every month. If you don’t want to buy what you want your gonna have to deal with the good and bad games every month.

    • Ok month?

      Wreckfest is fantastic and it just received a paid PS5 upgrade.

      BFV is big AAA that surprisingly undersold, so not everyone owns it.

      Stranded Deep is an interesting survival game that came out on PS4 barely one year ago. It had some bugs, but is much smoother now.

      For me, this is the best lineup in a while. All three are known commodities, and reasonably big games. Wreckfest is obviously the bell of the ball but battlefield 5 is a quality inclusion. I remember seeing ads for Stranded Deep less than a year ago. I am ecstatic with this lineup and in my opinion PlayStation Plus has been phenomenal since the inauguration of PS5.

  • Another, great month!! Thanks Sony :)

    • Either your a delusional fanboy or have low standards bc this is no way a great month at all.

    • Don’t listen to the haters. I’m excited to play BF5 and Stranded Deep. Some people won’t be satisfied unless they get HZD2 and Miles Morales as free PS+ games 😋

    • Hey moron did i say i needed those games to be satisfied, this is the first month thar i felt was bad. But go on kissing Sony’ ass you little pathetic excuse for a fanboy.

    • Hey @killerlightning you sound like a troll what is your problem?

    • @killerlightning Why are you even here, if you don’t like it?? If you don’t like what we get FOR FREE…. Just leave, it’s that simple. Go over to Microsoft and play on a Xbox like the little boy that you are. Buuuhuuuu!

    • @Killerlightning

      I have to agree with HassanBrobre, this is a phenomenal month!

      In fact, this is my favorite month in a long time. Wreckfest just received a new PS5 edition that isn’t even free for existing owners. It’s a great game with great reviews.

      BFV is a huge AAA that surprisingly undersold because of “woke” controversy. Not as many ppl own it as you would expect.

      Stranded Deep only released on PS4 one year ago and was heavily advertised upon launch. It’s far more polished than it was when it released.

      This is a beautiful mix of genres, from FPS to racing to survival. I think Sony nailed it. I’m happy. I almost purchase all three at different junctures.

    • I think it’s a great month myself. @killerlightning, I understand there are lots of people who dislike racing games and FPS due to poor skills, but at least give them a download/play before being so negative.

    • @killerlightning
      Dont just think bout urself learn to smile on others happiness becoming a troll wont help u getting rid of the fact ur a crybaby

    • I kind of agree with killer lightning it’s not that great of a month. Due the fact stranded deep lags a lot when you start building stuff and making better things on one island base and it is a known bug with the only answer being build on multiple islands

      Bf 5 is OK if you don’t have it

      Wreakfest is cool and saves me paying for the upgrade

      But I personally won’t call it a great month not due to what I did not get but just down to owning them all.

    • In no way is this a “great” month and everyone here replying under this comment are idiots. If you don’t like what @killerlightning said, ignore it otherwise, you stupid people are worse than he is.

    • @razorsfury but if you don’t like what people are saying about these games, why don’t you just ignore it instead of insulting other people on the internet?

      I don’t have BF5 nor Stranded Deep so I’m more than happy with those games.

    • bigthomasjackson

      Killerlightning have problems dont listen to him

    • GoldenWaffleGod


      Bruh, you sound like you need a nap. Somebody get this man a glass of warm milk 😂

    • Some players need to stop harassing @killerlighting just because they shared their opinion. I do appreciate the people who are tagging @killerlighting and having a civilised discussion however those who are harassing him should be ashamed.

    • Do you not realise how upset or infuriated you would be If many people were harassing you? That’s the problem, there’s a continuous flood of comments just harassing one, single, person! I saw 7 players harassing @killerlighting and razorsfury. Please keep it well mannered. This is unbelievable.

    • kushtilmymindgon

      Why is it trolling to give someone’s opinion on very old games being given out for free but they’re “not free” because we pay for them?? So we pay cash for them and we get to have no opinion? yeah sure I saw these games on ads a long time ago and I never wanted to play them then. Just because someone has a different opinion than you doesn’t make them a troll or less relevant. Only trolling I see happening is constantly attacking someone for having higher standards for games.

  • what game asia will get?

    • Same games as most people, battlefield, wreck fest and, stranded deep. Saw a post on reddit from a dude in India so that’s how I know.

  • You have got to be kidding.. all of these games have either been on ps now or have been free forever with ea play. What a terrible month.. Yall have got to stop adding games that are on other services. What is the point in a gamer paying for all services to get the same games from different services different months?

    • Not everyone has ea access

    • Well, if you let one or the other lapse, you can still play on the service you’re paying for. Not every gamer buys every service out there, you know.

    • Hey, I don’t believe I’ve downloaded a Plus game this year yet…then I look at the other system I have..$24/Year with over 100 retro games, alt versions rewind, state saves and realize I only need PS4 for NieR and Life is Strange. Everything else I buy on my NS. Can’t be bothered with Sony these days.

    • I’m seeing a lot of comments trashing these games. I am excited to add these to my library. Never got a chance to play BF5 and the influx of new players from it being free should make for some fun multiplayer for someone getting back into it.

      Look everyone, not every month of PS+ is gonna be a smash like last month (Days Gone made my month by itself!) but you’re literally getting hundreds of dollars worth of great games for the price of a single brand new PS4 game (if you pay by the year, which you’d be silly not to, it’s a great deal and if you watch for sales, you can get a year for $45 or less). Everybody has different libraries and preferred games. Not every month’s games are gonna be tailored to YOUR library and YOUR interests. There are 47 million other people that pay for PS+. You’re. Not. Special.

      If you don’t like the games, go play one of the other hundreds of games in your library or go spend that $60 you would have spent on PS+ (again, for a WHOLE year of the service) on the one game you were hoping was gonna be free this month 🤷🏾‍♂️

      And for perspective: Each month, the games we get from PS+ cost you a measly $5 (if you pay for the year) so expecting to get a $60-70 game that YOU specifically want is kinda setting yourself up for failure. Just saiyan…..

    • I don’t have EA Play or PS Now, so great for folks like me. But I can see you point. Maybe don’t subscribe to so many services?

    • Not everyone has touched an EA game in 8 years lol.
      What kind of sad loser do you have to be to have EA “The Cancer of Gaming” Pass lol?

    • How long has games that’s are on PS Now been getting added to PS Plus? You don’t like what’s there go buy what you want. Sony can’t make you people happy every month.

    • @AndewSqual I bought the EA pass, I bought 8 years worth, because it converted to 2 years, 8 months worth of Xbox Ultimate. Which is far better than any other gaming deal around.

      These games for PS+ this month are all ok. I’ve had X-Enhanced version for 2 months of Wreckfest, which seems identical to the PS5 version (60fps, Native 4k etc…)

      Battlefield 5 I’ve had for a long time on Xbox, but I’ll get the PS4 version too, purely because I prefer the feel of the PS5 pad.

      Stranded Deep I’ve not played, and I have no doubt I will give it a go and give up after a few hours. But I do like the look of it, so will be happy to have it in my library.

      I dont bother with PS Now, so there’s no double dip worries for me, any games on both consoles (Like Zombie Army 4 which appeared on Game Pass at practically the same time) I dont mind, because I change my mind on which console is my primary all the time anway

    • I don’t have EA Play and I do own a PS5, so this month is phenomenal for me.

      Been interested in Wreckfest since it released to rave reviews. Now there is a PS5 edition with all the bells and whistles.

      Battlefield is a huge AAA with industry leading visuals and great multiplayer. I do not own it. I look forward to the campaign.

      Stranded Deep released on PS4 only a year ago. I enjoy survival games.

      I’m so happy with this lineup. I don’t own any of these and I’m interested in all of them. Particularly Wreckfest PS5!

    • EA play, lol. Nuff said.

    • Why are there so many people here feel the need to talk down to others if they don’t care for the games… If you don’t agree with the comments just say “i don’t agree” and STFU. Especially you @goldenwafflegod. No one needs you to tell them how to react. This is a weak line up, get over it. You are not the comment police.

    • Wow

  • Terrible month imo, 2 PS Now games and another EA access game…. Wreckfest is boring…. BFV a 3hr campaign, great stuff. And Stranded Deep? Is that a joke, i think you should actually play it and see why that shouldn’t be on Now or Plus… The game runs so bad that you have to restart it just to play a few more min before you have to do it again!

  • Apologies for the probably silly question but any idea if owners of a PS4 copy of Wreckfest who have a PS5 can upgrade the game via the PS5 one being offered via Plus?

    • The upgrade from ps4 to ps5 wreakfest is $10 if you don’t get it from plus but even if you don’t own a ps5 you may as well claim it via the ps app

  • Wreckfest on PS5 is kinda weird. The PS5 version is only releasing on June 1st. So will PS5 owners get a PS4 version that somehow cannot be installed on PS4 (for those with both consoles) ? And the June 1st release is expected to be a paid upgrade for PS4 owners, so curious how that will happen.

    • So they’re giving the ps4 version, but only for ps5 users?

      That makes sense./s

      I know they have to give ps5 owners something, but why leave ps4 owners in the lurch like this?

    • Also wondering the same. Maybe it is the PS5 version but a PS+ exclusive until 1st June?

    • daxterstarsriba

      On my machine Wreckfest is PS5 version. The PS4 version is for sale.

  • I’m shocked that people who actually want BF and still don’t have it…exist.

    I’ll pass on this month. Still happy with Zombie Army 4 despite over $150 in microtransactions.

    • Woah, $150 in microtransactions? I suppose that is the real reason these publishers offer up their titles for free on PS+.

      I am also slogging my way through the ZA4 campaign and am enjoying it, too. No add-on purchases… yet.

  • Meh…
    Another Battlefield, a semi-competent survival game that is still in early acess and a filler for PS5.
    Not exactly an exciting month for me.

  • Nothing for May that interests me. Well at least I have Returnal to play on Friday.

  • Honestly disliking that they double dip both PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now. Stranded Deep was one of the reasons why I want PlayStation Now and was waiting to re-subscribe to PlayStation Now when it goes on sale but doesn’t look like I will be doing that anytime soon.

    • Everything on PS Now eventually ends up on PS Plus. PS Now is basically an early access service to PS Plus.

  • Pls change stranded deep, or weckfest to mortal kombad 11. please.

    • Hahahahahaha.

    • Could just change the entire lineup to a $7 or something store credit voucher…

      Which would actually be a good thing to do with Plus. You can pick their lineup or get something towards something you actually want. That way no month can really be bad.

      It encourages them to put something people want. It also means that people who don’t really care for the general offerings also get something (like RPG or fighting game fans).

    • W E C K F E S T

      MORTAL K O M B A D


  • Yeeeaaaaaaa Playstation

  • Muito bom, ótimos jogos

  • Has anyone seen a trend with ps plus may games always are bad

  • Literally just bought wreckfest 🥲

  • Rubbish… Rubbish… And rubbish….

  • Since Wreckfest has the PS5 logo on it, does this mean that we will get the PS5 version 1 month before the official release ?

  • Not a bad month, but it feels like a huge step down from the likes of Control, FF7R, and Days Gone in the previous months.

    • Oh wow you just put control in that sentence as if it was a good game.Good Plus game for sure since it ain’t worth a cent but don’t put it along with the likes of FF7 and Days Gone.

  • Not happy with the games for may. would’ve preferred some indie games

  • Dear Sony, please stop duplicating PS Now and PS Plus games. Or merge the two services. It’s very anti-consumer to have your consumers pay for the same games on different services.

    • Dear Sony. Some of us don’t have the two services. There are two different services, so naturally games are going to crossover. It is like complaining that Disney Plus has the same movie as on Hulu (both owned by Disney). Please keep doing what you have been doing.

    • @dkarlowicz10 How about you stop complaining when others have a legitimate concern. Do you work for sony? no? Then STFU.

  • Can u put samurai warriors 4 and Plants vs zombies 3 next month 🤔👀

  • OK Battlefield 5, but I don’t know what to say about the other games.

  • About BFV. There is the Deluxe Edition with extra content and the base version, what PS Plus gonna offer.

    There is no way to upgrade to Deluxe Edition and there is the pre-order Enlister offer which is locked for now.

    Is BFV like Star Wars Battlefront 2 where you can unlock everything and higher versions offer early unlocks for those items? So the Deluxe Content for BFV is just early unlock? Or does the Deluxe Edition offer exclusive content not unlockable in the game later?

    • It will be the base version, Sony never includes the Deluxe or Ultimate editions in PS+ games.

      Just look at this past months Days Gone & Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Both have Deluxe version but PS+ only gives you access to Standard Editions.

    • @ EyesBleedNoSleep – Sometimes it happens,it’s very rare but it happens…if it’s their game…Detroit was the deluxe dition.

  • How about offering people both versions of the game as some people still cannot get next gen systems

  • Big like!Thanks!

  • Nice, another good month.

  • Wreckfest for PS5 is great, wanted to try it, while I’m waiting for the next FlatOut.

  • I was expecting the PS5 game to be Judgement, since I just bought it and that’s usually how it works.

  • well, that’s a shame.

  • BFV sure, but another games from PsNow.. come on… I pay for two services to get the same games twice ..

    • Imagine if you paid for ea play too, you would have zero new games.

    • @ killerlightning – But you gotta be brainless to pay for ea play no?…am I missing something here?…haha.I just hope those who do pay for ea play aren’t expecting Sony to take in consideration that when choosing Plus’ games.

    • @welmosca erm… that made no sense.

  • It seems to me that Sony isn’t encouraging customers to subscribe to *both* PSPlus and PSNow, it’s choose one or the other.

  • meh.
    No interest in Battlefield. Would like to try Wreckfest but it’s only the PS5 version and PS5’s are still really difficult to actually purchase. yay.

  • Good month!

  • Holy macaroni, one of the best months ever! Thank you Sony :D :D :D

  • Why stranded deep though, you’ve guys could’ve atleast gotten the forest for ps plus this month. What a shame.

  • Ive passed over battlefield 5 for 5$ so many times im happy to finally play through the campaign. Stranded deep gives me too many Ark survival evolved vibes and that game was cancer so ill skip this one. Wreckfest will also just sit in my library till one day im so bored i go in and download all the ps+ games i never tried.

  • wokefield 5? no thank you

  • Another dime a dozen FPS and a beach bum simulator?!? Gonna be a long month …

    • Why a long month?…cuz you depend on Plus to play?…if that’s the case then it’s definitely not Sony’s fault,it goes more in the direction of the mirror.

    • @welmosca what are you the comment police? Others don’t care for this months games. Get over it.

  • These 3 are great games, especially Stranded Deep. I have hundreds of hours with this game & a pretty insane home Island I built. Any Island Survival Fan will love this game. Is it a perfect game, of course not but it is really really fun & if you can look past the hiccups that pop up every so often then you will have a game that is a ton of fun to enjoy.

  • Another month where PSVR owners get nothing. Bummer.

    And while we’re here, would it kill you PlayStation to have sales in the Vita and PS3 stores again?

  • I really bought BF5 on sale just for it to be free 2 weeks later. You gotta be kidding me

  • I was hoping for godfall and disco elysium
    I’m not gonna buy godfall
    And disco seems cooool

  • Or: publishers who are willing to include their games in one “free” service in exchange for a set fee are also willing to include their games in another service. This also applies to publishers willing to include their games in sale events. Caveat emptor.

  • Well this sucks I already have these lol

    • I don’t own any of them but even if I did I could objectively admit that this is a quality lineup.

  • Wreckfest is excellent. Or at least I seem to think it is. I’ve been stuck playing it for the past 2 or so months. My internet is awful so I haven’t been able to enjoy the online racing in its full glory.

    But it’s relaxing, stupid fun. And one of the few racing games I know of that’s not loaded with microtransactions. Has some DLC packs but they’re absolutely worth it.

  • I think it’s both crap because I’ve been had battlefield 5 and stranded deep I just purchased that about a month month and a half ago and now it’s free I would have never bought it the games they giving are games that people already have some people don’t but some people like me to buy games do I’m just going to stop by and games for now unless it’s a brand new game

    • They literally gave brand new games the past few months. Oddworld, Maquette, Destruction All-Stars, Bugsnax, etc.

      As a PS5 owner I believe the PS plus lineups have been nothing but gold since the console launched. A beautiful mix of new games and huge AAAs or underrated gems.

  • I’m definitely going to give Stranded Deep a try.

  • Just consolidate Plus and Now already. Tired of subbing to both to just have the same games being bounced between the two.

    • Not everywhere has now but yeah merge it in the countries that do for about ten what ever you pay with less then both together

    • @yasink So what. just because you don’t have it doesn’t mean others that do don’t have a right to be concerned.

    • @razorsfury did you read what I wrote or just jump to anger in one step… I said now is not every where in the world so making the now and plus is not fair for all BUT I am all for making a bundle where the price for both is discounted. And on a side note I do have now so please next time read slowly
