Go Beyond with Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe in May’s PlayStation Plus free games

Matt Sayer 26 April 2018 NEWS

Beyond: Two Souls heads up a strong selection of free games coming to PlayStation Plus subscribers in May.

Telltale Games is often credited as the studio that brought old-school point-and-click adventure games into the modern era with its acclaimed adaptation of The Walking Dead, but it certainly wasn't the first developer to explore a more cinematic approach to storytelling. Quantic Dream has been at the forefront of narrative-focused adventure games since teaming up with David Bowie on Omikron: The Nomad Soul back in 1999, and was one of the first to dabble with quick-time events with 2005's Fahrenheit.

In advance of Quantic Dream's upcoming Detroit: Become Human, Sony is giving PlayStation Plus subscribers the chance to take the studio's last game for a spin by kicking off May's free game line-up with Beyond: Two Souls. Starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, the remastered PS3 game chronicles protagonist Jodie's life from birth to adulthood as she struggles to control her supernatural powers and her psychic bond with the ghostly being Aiden. Souped up with enhanced graphics and the ability to experience the story chronologically as well as in the original thematic order, the PS4 remaster is quite unlike anything else on the console.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, the second major title for PlayStation Plus members in May is Rayman Legends. The gorgeous side-scrolling platformer might well be the best of its kind outside of one moustachioed plumber's lauded adventures, and even then, ol' Mario can't say he's platformed to the tune of Black Betty or Eye of the Tiger like Rayman can.

For PlayStation Plus subscribers still rocking their PS3s and Vitas, May brings the swashbuckling RPG Risen 3: Titan Lords, the comic-book-styled Eat Them!, the physics-based King Oddball and the puzzle game Furmins.

  • Beyond: Two Souls (PS4)
  • Rayman Legends (PS4)
  • Risen 3: Titan Lords (PS3)
