PlayStation has announced which games are coming to PS Plus in May, all rolling out to subscribers today. The games include Grid Legends, Chivalry 2 and Descenders. All three titles are available to subscribers now through June 6. As usual, the update consists of at least one multiplayer title.
The headliner is racing game Grid Legends, the Codemasters title, which launched on consoles and PC in February 2022 and features a full, cinematic story alongside the fast-paced gameplay. The multiplayer title is Chivalry 2, a medieval battle simulator where players can team up to fight their way through the battlefields of yesteryear. The final game is Descenders, a physics-based bike simulator that’s all about going downhill.
Unlike Game Pass, PS Plus does not publicly remove games from its library at regular intervals. However, PlayStation announced in February that it was discontinuing the PS Plus collection on May 9. That means subscribers won’t be able to access this collection of the PS4’s biggest releases starting next week. Most of the titles in the collection, including Bloodborne, God of War, and The Last of Us Remastered.
Sony revealed in last week’s financial report that the number of PS Plus subscribers has not shifted year over year. That said, the number of subscribers in the last quarter was the highest of the entire fiscal year, so perhaps more people will return to PS Plus with the increased benefits. The number of monthly active users is down from earlier this year, but the number hasn’t fallen to a new low.
