PS Plus: Free Games for May 2017

Survive Pandora in Tales from the Borderlands, or kick back and explore with Abzu on PS4.

Greetings, PlayStation Nation! The free PS Plus games for May are upon us, and we have something special for everyone. This month we have Tales from the Borderlands and Abzu on PS4.

First up: Tales from the Borderlands, a five-part episodic series from the experts at Telltale Games. Set in the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2, follow the journey of Rhys and Fiona as they are thrown together to recover a fortune they both believe is theirs.

From there, put your feet (Flippers?) up and relax with Abzu. Immerse yourself in an ocean full of life and wonder. Feeling stressed? This is the relief you’re looking for.

Full Lineup

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

Enjoy these games, and see you next time!

  • ALL PS+ GAMES R GARBAGE!! They use to have some decent ones, Hell PS3 gets somewhat better than PS4, Id rather Just my PS+ be less than get these games tht I would never even think 2wice of ever playing..

    Last game i remember free and good was THIEF..China’s PS+ Actually get some quality oldetr AAA games.

    Not long ago it was

    Until dawn
    Infamous son
    a few other

    Xblock even has better GOLD games then ps+/ Throw me a free sub of PSNOW INSTEAD of 2 games that are fully crap..
    Im not about to delete games to add this JUNK, I had to already add a 2TB HDD, Which was worth it,since the one that comes with the PS4 is only 5400rpms. I got one 7400rpm.. Seems allot smoother..

    We need to all as a community BOY COT THESE CRAPPY GAMES..N refuse to payPSPLUS, Just make a new account every 14days for a few months ,see if we can get something done.. That gives u free psplus..New account fresh PS+.THERES other off..,

    I’m disappointed. Today I woke up early to get abzu downloaded, but i see the same bs as yesterday. Damnit PlayStation, I’m definetly getting Xbox 2 rather than PS5

    • Games will be available in the first Tuesday of a month when store updates

  • Will Asian store PS Plus subscribers get Abzu and TOTB too?

  • Lizardking_8989

    Wanted to buy Abzu and love tell tale games so I’m looking forward to this months games.

  • Long as i get games that the total value of is more than playstation plus, im ok with it.

  • almost 2nd may and still no games… when can we expect store update?

  • Man, people in UK want azlu or whatever…I want alienation in the US. Poo

  • aRagingFatass

    Yeah another month of bad games! /sarcasm

  • soulsonic112

    When will these games be available?

  • Yeah, don’t think I’ll bother

    This lineup is terrible as usual. My ps plus is expiring this summer, and the fact that they raised the price for ps plus and that their services still aren’t any better doesn’t make me want to renew ps plus. But what adds insult to injury is the fact that they keep giving us bad ps plus games that people don’t want to play or have never heard of. Would it kill them to give us at least one AAA title a month, or every 2 months or so. For the price they ask for ps plus, this isn’t much asking. 90% of their ps plus lineup are indie games… if this doesn’t change, I’m sure more people will abandon their ps plus.

  • And whats exactaly the reason, why there is no abzu in europe? screw thos other crappy games (not talking about borderlands here)
    its kinda naughty, not to have it here…
    if not to say an effrontery.
    thanks for nothing…

  • Abzu and Type:Rider…2 games I’ve been wanting to buy for a while.Ha one can’t ask for something better.

  • TornadoNinjaBen

    I’ve gone on the PS Plus page on PS4. And TFTB isn’t there. It’s the only game I have interest in for this month and want it. Can someone help plz?

  • HazelwoodReach

    I dislike the games provided this month, not even worth the download…
    i mean, I’m your slave sony, I like to play online so I’m going to buy plus…
    thanks, I guess, for at least using lube while I take it by giving us something to ease the pain.. but could you use a little more? maybe give us a multiplayer game or something with a value of like 29.99 like battlefront or something of the nature?

    come on, one up microsoft at no cost to your customers and we will love you long time

  • does people really rely on PS+ games?
    they are just an “add-on” for the service
    “PC has this for free”
    well PC games besides a few games (LoL, DOTA and such) have terrible services and these being “on maintenance” is a daily thing, hacking is also something that happens too often (i’m looking at you EA games, Rockstar, Archeage …), and yes i used to play a bunch of MMORPG and MMOFPS games. Name one that doesn’t have a bad service, got no problems on PSN so far.
    Games get their way on PS+ for free when they are not selling well anymore, if the console has healthy sales, then don’t expect AAA games for free for now, buy the damn games if you want them so much.

  • So glad I’ve kept my PS3 with backlogs of decent plus games since 2012

  • ….thank sony… yet another month that has a game I REALLY wanna play (Tales from the Borderlands, PS4) But u only allow for the ps4 to download it instead of both ps3 and ps4. The other games I’ll play just bc I like trying everything but if they were in a $5 box. I’d probably not even look at them. Step ur game up and offer these games to all platforms they exist on… u did in the past…
