May 2017 Looks Great for PS Plus and Games with Gold Owners

May 2017 Looks Great for PS Plus and Games with Gold Owners

As if you needed any more games to play in an already exciting year for video games, next month’s PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold free titles will only add to your growing list. Both Sony and Microsoft have announced what you can expect in May of 2017.

Let’s start out with the more impressive batch of games. If you’re not already a PlayStation Plus member, these free games may change your mind:

  • Tales from the Borderlands – PS4
  • Abzu – PS4
  • Blood Knights – PS3
  • Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants – PS3
  • Laser Disco Defenders – PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Type:Rider – PS Vita (Cross Buy on PS4)

Tales from the Borderlands is the Telltale spin on the beloved Borderlands franchise, taking the first-person shooter and transforming it into a story based interactive novel. There are five episodic parts, all of which are included here. We gave the game a positive score, saying it was “a chance for fans of the franchise to see Pandora in a new light.”

The more recently released Abzu is a very different game in which there is no story, little mechanics, and a vast underwater ocean to explore. When we reviewed the game last year, we gave it a 7 out of 10, explaining that while enjoyable, it was still hard to recommend for its simplistic approach.

As for Games with Gold, Microsoft has four titles for dedicated members. Do take note that these are only available at certain times during the month!

If you’re not already signed up, you can grab either PlayStation Plus or Games with Gold for $9.99 USD (1-month) or $59.99 (12-month).

The PS Plus Games Of July Have Been Confirmed

The PS Plus Games Of July Have Been Confirmed

Playstation 4 owners have an exciting month to look forward to. With July brings some interesting titles such as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and I Am Setsuna. For those who enjoy free games, PS Plus members will gain access to two incredible games as well as a host of deals on other games.

Available to PS Plus members:

  • Furi (Playstation 4)
  • Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell (PS4)
  • Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PS3)
  • Fat Princess (PS3)
  • Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines (PS Vita)
  • Prince of Persia: Revelation (PS Vita)

Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell finds the President of the Third Street Saints battling Beelzebub himself in this extreme and ridiculous addition to the Saints Row franchise. Furi looks to be the more interesting of the two, in my opinion, appearing like a 3D Hyper Light Drifter.
