Which PlayStation Plus games are free in May?

TODO alt text

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?
