Seeing as you’re here, reading this article, you probably already know that a PlayStation Plus subscription comes with free games. Each month, Sony makes two PlayStation titles available for download for “free.” That’s if you’re a subscriber, of course. There are limited time windows in which to download these monthly free games, but you do get to keep them forever. So what are you waiting for? Might as well grab the games as soon as they become available!
It’s worth noting that PlayStation Plus used to offer both PS Vita and PlayStation 3 titles each month as well. This was stopped early on in March 2019. Users now only get two PlayStation 4 titles, though it looks like they’re a bit more current to make up for that fact.
Here are the PlayStation Plus free games for May 2019, as well as a history of what’s been available so far this year. That way you don’t find yourself waiting for a game to be free when it’s already out of the rotation!
May 2019 PlayStation Plus Free Games
The following games will be available to download via the PlayStation Store starting May 7!
What Remains of Edith Finch ($20)
What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of short stories about a cursed family in Washington state.
Overcooked is a chaotic couch co-op cooking game for one to four players. Working as a team, you and your fellow chefs must prepare, cook and serve up a variety of tasty orders before the baying customers storm out in a huff. Sharpen your knives and dust off your chef’s whites, there isn’t mushroom for error and the steaks are high in these crazy kitchens!
What is PlayStation Plus?
PlayStation Plus has a system of free monthly downloads for its members. Each month, Sony offers two different games free of charge (besides the initial subscription cost). These can only be downloaded for a limited time, however. Miss the time frame and you’re out of luck!
If you download a game and don’t install it, or even uninstall it for that matter, you still get to keep the game. You can re-download it whenever you want.
It’s important to note that you must at least have an active PlayStation Plus subscription to play any of these titles. If you got Portal Knights in January, for example, and then let your PlayStation Plus lapse in February, you won’t be able to launch the game until you re-up your subscription.
It also comes with access to online multiplayer, member discounts, and online game saves.
PlayStation Plus Cost
Free games are a perk of PlayStation Plus. And besides a selection of free games, it also allows you to play PlayStation games online with friends and strangers. The subscription is available in multiple bundles.
- $9.99 – One month
- $24.99 – Three months
- $59.99 – One year
Every PlayStation Plus title is available for a one-month period. No need to remember dates like the Xbox Games with Gold system. In general, most titles are available starting on the second day of the month. The previous month’s titles fall off on the first of the new month.
