PSPlus and Games with Gold line-up for May

A new month is upon us and with it a new set for free games to add to the PSPlus Instant Game Collection and Xbox Live’s Games with Gold. This month we become professional racers, try our hand at some wrestling, finish a painting, and storm a castle. So get ready to “Join the Family” as we take a look at what we’re getting for each console.


Starting with Xbox One, we see Zen Studios’ CastleStorm: Definitive Edition, a 2D strategy game where players send out their knights in attempt to raid a castle while simultaneously preventing the other army from breaking though. Xbox One owners will also get Pool Nation FX carried over from last month, so if you still have time for that title if you haven’t picked it up yet.


On the 1st-15th, players will also get access to the highly praised 2K Czech open world crime game, Mafia 2, in which you pay Vito Scaletta, a war veteran who gets caught up in the mob as he attempts to pay his fathers debts and rises up the ranks of the mob family. From the 16th-31st, Players will get to race around the track in some of the fastest vehicles on earth in F1 2013.


The PSPlus instant game collection this month will see a lot of cross-buy content. PS4 owners will get the Metroidvania beat’em up “Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition” and the first person puzzler Ether 1, a new release in which players attempt to repair the minds of mental health patients. PS Vita will also see one exclusive title Murasaki Baby, a creepy side-scrolling puzzle platformer.


The other games include Hohokum, The Unfinished Swan and a new title called Race the Sun, in which players race the setting sun and avoid obstacles in the way. All three of these titles will be available on PS4, PS3 and Vita.
