So, April’s been quiet, huh? No big games happening anywhere on PlayStation at all. Of course, I’m kidding! If you haven’t had a chance to dive into Sony Santa Monica’s critically-acclaimed God of War then let us assure you, you’ve got something spectacular to look forward to.
And that’s all we’re going to say – there are no spoilers here on PlayStation Blog. Besides, we came here to do a job and that job, like always, is to unveil next month’s PlayStation Plus titles. April was a bit motor-mad and dystopian, so for May we’ve got something a little different lined-up:
With Detroit: Become Human set to launch in less than a month, what better time to catch up with the work of veteran French studio Quantic Dream?
Not only a technical showcase in its own right, Beyond: Two Souls not only raised the bar for true-to-life visuals in the last generation but also broadened the scope for interactive narrative in gaming.
Featuring phenomenal performances throughout from A-list acting talent, and a complex web of branching narratives, few games combine such high production values with such nuanced narrative-driven gameplay.
One of the high watermarks for the 2D platforming genre, few games demonstrate a greater level of polish or more distinctive artistic direction that Rayman Legends.
Ubisoft Montpellier’s Rayman Legends combines everything the studio has learnt during two decades of development, bringing together a vast cast of playable characters, dozens of varied stages, incredible hand-drawn 2D visuals and a range of multiplayer options.
If you love varied platforming challenges, hunting for secrets or bouncing along to a mariachi-styled reimagining of Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger (think Guitar Hero meets high-speed platforming), then this might just be the very thing for you.
As usual, we’ve two additional titles for both PS3 and PS Vita. The final line-up looks like this:
- Beyond: Two Souls (PS4)
- Rayman Legends (PS4)
- Risen 3: Titan Lords (PS3)
- Eat Them (PS3)
- King Oddball (PS Vita)
- Furmins (PS Vita)
All these titles will be available to download for PS Plus members on Tuesday 1st May, which leaves a few days spare to pick up anything from last month’s line-up you might have missed. A reminder of those:
- Mad Max (PS4)
- Trackmania Turbo (PS4)
- In Space We Brawl (PS3)
- Toy Home (PS3)
- 99 VIDAS (PS Vita)
- Q*Bert Rebooted (PS3/PS4/PS Vita)
And, that’s it for another month – I’ll see you again towards the end of May!
