It would be wrong to ignore the fact that Sony has been very generous in the last month; offering Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Dirt Rally 2.0 as their PS Plus games for members in April, and then The Uncharted Collection and Journey for free as part of their “Stay At Home Initiative“. The free Playstation Plus Games for May have been announced and needless to say, it’s underwhelming.
Maybe it was the raised expectations because of the high-quality offerings recently, but the announcement of Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19 aren’t quite the titles to get the blood-pumping. It’s unfair to expect Sony to provide consistent, AAA-quality titles each month, but it is fair to say that – given the circumstances – a little more could’ve been expected.
Sony says: “Do you have what it takes to develop a small, bustling community into a sprawling megacity? In Cities: Skylines, the acclaimed city builder sim by Paradox Interactive, you make the decisions that will see your city flourish or fail. You’ll need strategic smarts to keep your burgeoning ecosystem from collapse, ensuring your ever-growing populace stay happy and the industries that are the lifeblood of your expanding metropolis continue to thrive”.
Farming Simulator 19
Sony says for Farming Simulator 19: “Stressed by the bustling city life and eager to tackle a more sedate livelihood? Rural escapism awaits with Farming Simulator 19! Developer GIANTS Software has packed in a wealth of agricultural pastimes to lose yourself in as you set out to maintain a homestead. Harvest crops, raise livestock, tackle forest, ride your own horses…or just jump behind the wheel of your John Deere tractor or one of over 300 authentic farming vehicles and go for a drive”.
The PS Plus games for May will be available to download from the Playstation Store from May 5th – June 1st.
