The new batch of free PlayStation Plus games have been announced and we have all the details on what subscribers have to look forward to for PS Plus in May 2022.

While Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass continues to dominate the conversation when it comes to gaming subscriptions, Sony’s PlayStation Plus has been offering plenty of games since the service debuted back in the PS3 generation.

April saw the addition of Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated and Hood: Outlaws and Legends, but PS Plus is also getting a huge overhaul in June as part of “Spartacus.”

So here are the PS Plus offerings for May 2022, signaling the end of PS Plus in its current format.


PS Plus games for May 2022

May’s PS Plus games contain a couple of solid titles in Tribes of Midgard and Curse of the Dead Gods, but they are very probably overshadowed by the statement that EA’s FIFA 22 behemoth will be free on PS Plus in May 2022.

Curse of the Dead Gods is a top-down roguelike with similar vibes and gameplay to Hades, whereas Tribes of Midgard is an action-survival title set during the Viking era.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, little needs to be said about the addition of FIFA 22. The successful football simulation game continues to maintain its stranglehold over the sporting realm and making it free will open it up to a wider audience.

When will PS Plus games for May 2022 be available?

PS Plus games are made available on the first Tuesday of the month, so expect May 2022’s PS Plus games to be available on Tuesday, May 3.

PlayStation Now updates may drop on the PlayStation Blog out of nowhere at the start of a new month, but PlayStation Plus is much more consistent.

That’s because most of the time, the games are revealed on the last Wednesday of the month at 8:30AM PST / 11:30AM EST / 4:30PM BST / 5:30PM CEST. This month, the announcement was made as expected on April 27.

How to get PS Plus games for free

If you are looking to claim these games as a part of the May 2022 lineup, you’ll need to follow these few short steps:

  1. On the home screen of your PlayStation console, head over to the PlayStation Plus symbol in the top left.
  2. Once there, you will be able to download all the active games for the current month of PS Plus.
    • You will also also be able to subscribe to the service if you are not already.
  3. The new titles will now be in your Library!

As a refresher, PS Plus will still offer a couple of free games going forward each month, but you’ll need to the Extra tier to gain access to up to 400 PS4 and PS5 titles. The Premium tier goes beyond that, including PS3 games that can be streamed and PS1, PS2, and PSP games. Could Sony give us an older title to get people to pay for the most expensive tier?
