Your free PlayStation Plus games are getting something spicy and something sweet next month. Tales From the Borderlands will give you plenty of bang-bang pew-pew, while Abzu can help you relax and just, like, chill, man. Unless you're in Europe, in which case you get even more shooty-shooty kablam-boom with Alienation instead. The full lineup below should go live on Tuesday, May 2 - make sure you download April's selection before then!
May 2017 free PS Plus games
Tales From The Borderlands (PS4): Catch a ride and get your money back from the galaxy's most nefarious corporate businessmen in Telltale's twist on Gearbox's colorful universe of psychos and a gazillion guns.
Abzu (PS4, Americas region): Take a break from the depressing gloom and glum with a colorful adventure deep into the ocean, where you can swim with all manner of sea creatures. In short: it's Journey, but with an ocean instead of a desert.
Alienation (PS4, EU region): Why is it that we never seem to meet an alien species in video games that just wants to be friends? In this twin-stick shooter, you'll take on hordes of extraterrestrials that want nothing more than to terraform the planet with your guts.
Laser Disco Defenders (PS4, PS Vita): Bullet hell + disco music + laser show-inspired visuals = yes. All the yes.
Type:Rider (PS4, PS Vita): Who knew a game about fonts could be this fun? No seriously, who knew. Tell me. Ride around a world of typography, solve puzzles, and see literature like never before in this stylish platformer.
Blood Knights (PS3): What's a vampire hunter who's become a blood-sucker themselves supposed to do? Why, take up the sword and use their newfound powers to hack and slash their way through former colleagues, of course.
Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (PS3): Develop and build up a trading settlement, lay siege to competing companies, and plunder your foes' shipwrecks. Strategy meets piracy. Strategacy. Pirategy?
