Tall tales lead May’s PS Plus lineup

Brodie Fogg 27 April 2017 NEWS


Isometric shooter Alienation and the comedic romp Tales From the Borderlands lead May's free games with PlayStation Plus.

Update: We previously reported that Abzû was available to Australians with a PS Plus subscription. That's not the case. EU and AU subscribers instead have access to the intense arcade shooter Alienation.

After last month's chaotic arena shooter Drawn to Death PlayStation owners can sit back and take in the much more cinematic experience of Telltale's Tales from the Borderlands. If you never had the chance to experience Telltale's funniest outing to date, now's the perfect time to join Rhys, Fiona and Loader Bot on their unreliably narrated adventure across Pandora.

Also on PlayStation 4 is Alienation, the isometric shooter from Housemarque. Developer Housemarque improves upon the intense run-and-gun gameplay that made previous PS Plus star Dead Nation a hit with subscribers.

PS Plus instant game collection May 2017

  • Alienation (PS4)
  • Tales from the Borderlands (PS4)
  • Blood Knights (PS3)
  • Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (PS3)
  • Type: Rider: (PS Vita, Cross-Buy PS4)
  • Laser Disco Defenders (PS Vita, Cross-Buy PS4)

While the PlayStation 3 gets two totally forgettable entries this month, the PS Vita offers two quirky handheld titles. The first Type:Rider is a self-described typographic video game with touch controls. The second is Laser Disco Defenders a neon top-down shooter with customisable disco outfits. Probably not going to blow anyone away but it could be fun enough to burn a few minutes on the morning commute.

As May's PS Plus games roll in, last month's will go back to being full price. Download Drawn to Death and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime while you've still got a chance.
