Sony has revealed the PlayStation Plus games for May 2022 are FIFA 22 (PS5 & PS4), Tribes of Midgard (PS5 & PS4), and Curse of the Dead Gods (PS4).
Revealed on the PlayStation Blog, all three games will be made available at no extra cost to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on May 3.
FIFA 22 is the latest entry in EA’s football series, which is now almost ‘officially’ the best football game on the market thanks to the pretty disastrous launch and subsequent updates to Konami’s eFootball 2022.
Back to the freebie though, in IGN’s 7/10 review, we said: “Microtransactions still loom large, but small iterative changes and the horsepower of new-gen consoles combine to make FIFA 22 feel like a worthwhile upgrade without needing anything revolutionary or terribly exciting from EA’s side.”
Tribes of Midgard is a co-op survival game based on Norse mythology, and it’s up to the player (or players) to resist the incoming invasion of Giants during Ragnarok. We also gave this one a 7/10 review, saying: “Tribes of Midgard is a hectic, exciting, Norse-flavoured action RPG that is best faced with a shield wall full of friends.”
Perhaps saving the best for last, Curse of the Dead Gods is a roguelike action game with fast-paced combat and intense challenges. Players traverse procedurally generated dungeons from an isometric perspective as they build their arsenal before facing different enemies and bosses.
In our 9/10 review, IGN said: “Great action, smart strategy, and random curses carry Curse of the Dead Gods to top tier of the action-roguelite genre.”
Players have until May 2 to download April’s PlayStation Plus games and PS5 users have until May 11 to add Persona 5 to their library before it leaves the PS Plus Collection.
Sony is launching its “all new PlayStation Plus” in June with three separate tiers that offer different rewards including access to games from PlayStation’s entire history.
Users who already have PlayStation Plus alongside PlayStation Now will get the highest Premium Tier at no extra cost for the remaining length of their subscription.
