Tales from the Borderlands and Abzu, both for the PlayStation 4, will headline the free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers next month.
The lineup of free games will be refreshed in a few days, so PlayStation Plus members who have not yet downloaded the free games offered for the month of April still have time to do so.
Free PlayStation Plus Games For May 2017
A post on the official PlayStation blog revealed the free PlayStation Plus games for May, with a total of six titles included in the lineup.
Tales from the Borderlands by Telltale Games is set in the violent world of Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2. The PlayStation 4 game, which features a total of five story-driven episodes, will focus on Rhys and Fiona as they try to recover a fortune. All five episodes will be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
While Tales from the Borderlands tells a high-stakes story, Abzu for the PlayStation 4 is a relaxing exploration game that places players inside a diving suit and drops them into the ocean. Players will be able to swim alongside various aquatic creatures such as turtles, dolphins, and sharks as they explore the depths.
The PlayStation 3 games that will be offered to PlayStation Plus subscribers next month are Blood Knights and Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants. Blood Knights is a hack-and-slash action RPG featuring an unlikely alliance between a vampire hunter and a vampire, while Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants is the third installment of the business simulation series set in the Caribbean in the 16th and 17th centuries.
Lastly, for PlayStation Vita owners, the free games in next month's lineup are Laser Disco Defenders and Type: Rider, both of which are also cross buys with the PlayStation 4 so they can be enjoyed on both platforms. Laser Disco Defenders is a bullet hell shooter with randomized levels that evoke the disco era, while Type: Rider is a puzzle game that is described as a "typographic odyssey."
