PlayStation has revealed which free games PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to add to their accounts in May.
This month, two of the three games will have native PS5 versions, while the third is a PS4 game playable on PS5 through backwards compatibility.
The lead game for the month is FIFA 22, the latest installment of EA’s long-running football series. The PS5 version takes advantage of the extra horsepower to introduce HyperMotion technology to make the game look like the real thing, but that doesn’t stop PS4 and PS5 from being able to play against each other online.
It’s important to note that the Ultimate Team mode is full of microtransactions, locking players behind randomized lootboxes — something explained further here.

The other game with a PS5 version is Tribes of Midgard, a Norse mythology-themed game that blends survival and action RPG elements together. Playable solo or cooperatively with friends, the game features up to 10 players working together to defend a Seed of Yggdrasil through going out and gathering resources to craft into better weapons and fortifications. Did we mention that there are giant beasties?
Finally, we’ve got Curse of the Dead Gods, a single-player roguelike title. If you’ve enjoyed the likes of Hades gold Bastionetc, you should be right at home with this one.
You can add the games to your account through a console, smartphone app or web browser throughout May, and download them as long as you have an active subscription – even if you let it lapse and renew it later.
