Tropico 5 headlines May's free games on PlayStation Plus


It’s not a great month

Yesterday, Jordan told us to temper our expectations for Xbox’s Games with Gold in May. That bar-lowering seems equally necessary when looking at PlayStation’s gratis offerings for the month. Sure, there will be something for some people, but it’s less than astounding as a whole.

Government-control simulator Tropico 5on PS4 is probably the most high-profile of the five free games in May for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Table Top Racing: World Tourand Switch Galaxy Ultraare the other two PS4 titles.

On the PS3 side of things, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2is the sole legacy console game. Vita sees God of War: Ghost of Spartaand Switch Galaxy Ultra, the latter as a cross-play title.

Like we said: Underwhelming. That seems to be a recurring theme.
