Sony has just announced their next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games May 2021 which seems to be quite a mixed bag, this month. The games will be available for download on Tuesday, May 3.
First, there’s the first-person shooter Battlefield V. First released in 2018, it’s the sixteenth installment in the Battlefield series. The game is a return to the WWII era, and includes several new multiplayer modes including a battle royale mode with up to 64 players divided into squads.
Next, there’s Stranded Deep, a survival game released last year by Australian studio Beam Team Games. After surviving a plane crash in the Pacific Ocean, players can craft shelters and a raft, explore the procedurally generated islands and ocean, while fighting off hunger, thirst, and a variety of dangerous sea life.
Finally, for the PS5, there’s Wreckfest. The game was originally a PC and Xbox exclusive before making its way to the PlayStation 5. As a racing game, players can participate in banger racing and demolition derby, wiping out opponents while avoid crashing themselves, in an attempt to reach first place.
All three games in the PlayStation Plus free games May 2021 line-up have Platinum trophies to unlock.
The Platinums for both Battlefield V and Wreckfest are of average difficulty, though of course depends on your first-person shooter and racing skills. Both games have online trophies which can be made easier if boosted. Both games require roughly around 30 hours to Plat.
Stranded Deep is more time consuming than difficult, as you will need to craft every possible item, as well as do a fair bit of farming. Depending on your playstyle, the Platinum could take over 50 hours of gameplay.
