PlayStation Plus Free Games May 2020

PlayStation Plus Free Games May 2020

Another month comes and goes. For many of us, it’s another month of staying at home in quarantine, another month of social distancing from our friends, yet luckily, another month of more free games. Here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus Free Games May 2020 available for download on Tuesday, May 5.

First, there’s Cities: Skylines, a city-building simulation game. Players take on the role of urban planning by deciding road placement and controlling public transportation, handle taxes, decide the city’s budget, while keeping the employment levels up and pollution levels down.

Next, there’s Farming Simulator 19, another simulation game. Instead of creating a busy city, players escape to the quiet landscape of farming territory where they breed livestock, grow crops, and sell their assets.

While it’s a bit strange Sony decided to release two simulators in the same month, trophy hunters will be happy to know that both games include Platinum trophies to unlock.

Cities: Skylines is not particularly difficult so long as you refrain from downloading the DLC, but will certainly require over a hundred hours of gameplay for the Platinum.

Farming Simulator 19 is slightly easier and requires much less time for the Platinum, at roughly around 50 hours of gameplay.

If simulation games are not your thing, these aren’t the only free games available at the moment. As part of Sony’s Play At Home Initiative during the Coronavirus pandemic, both the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey have been available for free for all players as of April 15, and lasting until May 5. Players do not need to be PlayStation Plus members in order to download these freebies.
