Update: Sony has confirmed the PS Plus lineup for May. As previously disclosed, the free games on offer are FIFA 22, Tribes of Midgard, and Curse of the Dead Gods. These games will be available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers from May 3 through June 7.
Original story: The lineup of free PS Plus games for May 2022 was apparently leaked ahead of Sony’s official announcement.
According to a post by French leaker Billbil-Kun on Dealabs, which has accurately leaked upcoming PS Plus and Xbox Game Pass titles in the past, the free PS Plus games for May 2022 will be FIFA 22 (PS5/PS4), Curse of the Game. Dead Gods (PS4) and the Tribes of Midgard (PS5/PS4). These games would be available for PS Plus members from May 3 through June 7.
The Dealabs post says the publication verified this leak (although it doesn’t state how), but the publication’s track record of accurate lineup leaks adds further weight to the claims. Additionally, deal site hotukdeals seems to corroborate this leak, also announcing these titles as the PS Plus lineup for May.
A first for FIFA
If this leaked lineup is indeed accurate, then the May 2022 PS Plus offering will mark the first time a FIFA game has been available as a free-to-play PlayStation Plus title. FIFA 22 is the latest installment in the football series (and is included in our list of the best PS5 games), so being able to grab it for free as part of Sony’s subscription service would be a huge boon for football fans – at unless you’ve got it already of course.
While FIFA 22 would certainly be the headliner of this lineup, the other titles potentially on offer shouldn’t be overlooked, especially if you’re a roguelike fan. Curse of the Dead Gods is a roguelike dungeon crawler that will feel very familiar to those who have played the excellent Hades while Tribes of Midgard is a co-op roguelike adventure that has garnered plenty of positive reviews on Steam.
We’re expecting Sony to confirm its May lineup of free PS Plus games in the coming days and, if that lineup is accurate, it’s another pretty decent month for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Things only seem to be looking up for subscribers to Sony’s gaming service, as the upcoming PS Plus revamp, which will see the service combined with PS Now, is set to roll out in June.
