PS Plus Essential May 2024

Sony has today confirmed the three PS5, PS4 games PS Plus Essential members can look forward to playing as part of their subscription for May 2024. Available to download from Tuesday, 7th May 2024, they are:

Sony seems to be positioning EA Sports FC 24 as the headliner for May 2024, which marked the first time the franchise released without FIFA in the name. It's still mostly the same game as before, though, with quality football gameplay across a lot of different modes. "Beneath the air of familiarity is another slick soccer sim, with some smart new additions like PlayStyles and Precision Passing which help stamp a bit more personality on a previously robotic experience," we concluded in our EA Sports FC 24 review.

"Additions to Ultimate Team bring flexibility to the game’s flagship mode, while the developer has been listening to its fanbase, and is slowly iterating on oft neglected areas like Career Mode and Clubs."

The PS5, PS4 console maker also really wants to make sure you're all caught up on Destiny 2 expansions, as Lightfall marks yet another bonus DLC included with PS Plus Essential. This will prepare you for The Final Shape dropping in June.

Indie gem Tunic and AA sequel Ghostrunner 2 round out the line up to satisfy a wider audience of PS5, PS4 users. Having first launched on Xbox, Tunic made its way to Sony systems, where we awarded it an 8/10. "It's a cohesive, satisfying game that scratches an old school action-adventure itch, going above and beyond with subversive, cerebral puzzles. It maybe goes on a touch longer than it needs to, but this little gem of a game punches above its weight."
