So, that’s April almost in the bag and a third of the year already put to our rudder. However, no month slips under our radar without us taking time out to unveil which games PlayStation Plus owners can look forward to in the month ahead.
So, without further ado let’s bid ‘bon voyage’ to April and find out what’s in store for May:
Like blasting aliens? Who doesn’t? Take control of a new breed of super soldier – specially enhanced with xeno technologies – and tear through frozen research bases, radioactive ruins, top-secret military facilities and even the odd mothership or two.
From the creators of Dead Nation and Resogun, Alienation combines classic twin-stick shooting with a deceptively deep loot system, procedurally-generated end-game maps, dungeon raids, weekly objectives and a global league table.
Wrap all this up in the most bombastic pyrotechnics and particle effects of the generation and you’re guaranteed hours of E.T. hunting fun.
Tales from the Borderlands
Buckle up for a fresh new take on Gearbox’s brilliant Borderlands universe as Telltale Games bring their signature style of action, consequence and storytelling to the lawless, gun-toting world of Pandora.
And where would a good Borderlands story be without a Vault to hunt? Yep, series aficionados will feel right at home as they join a corporate suit and a cheeky con-woman in search of a stolen fortune and the keys to one of Pandora’s legendary hidden vaults.
Told in five parts and featuring the voice talents of Troy Baker, Laura Bailey, Nolan North and Patrick Warburton, Tales from the Borderlands rounds off our PS4 offering for this month.
PS3 and PS Vita owners can also look forward to two new titles apiece, leaving the full line up looking like this:
- Alienation (PS4)
- Tales from the Borderlands (PS4)
- Blood Knights (PS3)
- Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (PS3)
- Laser Disco Defenders (PS Vita)
- Type: Rider (PS Vita)
May’s titles will be available to download from PlayStation Store from Tuesday 2nd May. Until then, you’ve still got a few days left to pick up any titles from last month’s line up you might have missed. Here’s a handy reminder:
