It's almost May, and that means one thing - a new batch of PlayStation Plus games. To recap, last month's lineup included one PS5 title (Oddworld: Soulstorm) and two PS4 titles (Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War). This month, Sony is continuing the formula with one PS5 exclusive and two PS4 games.

All three PS Plus May games are free to subscribers and will be available for download from Tuesday, May 4 through to Monday, May 31. And if you haven't grabbed April's free games yet, you still have until Monday, May 3 to do so.
