PlayStation Plus Free Games May 2024

Hopefully the weather outside is finally beginning to warm up, depending on where you live. And if not, why not stay indoors and play some games? Sony has just unveiled their PlayStation Plus free games May 2024 line-up which will be available for download on Tuesday, May 7.

First, there’s Ghostrunner 2, the action-platformer developed by One More Level, and a sequel to the 2020 Ghostrunner. In this first-person game, players traverse environments by jumping, wall-running, and swinging from a grappling hook, while battling enemies with either a sword or special abilities. Play as Jack as he ventures beyond the Dharma Tower in order to battle against a cyber ninja AI cult.

Next, there’s EA Sports FC 24, the football/soccer simulation game developed jointly by EA Vancouver and EA Romania. One of the major upgrades to this version in the series is the PlayStyles, a feature which better represents the real player’s unique styles.

Lastly, there’s Tunic, the 2022 action-adventure game developed by Isometricorp Games. Players control a fox armed with a sword and shield, and venture into a post-apocalyptic fantasy world freely, without any directions or instructions.

Among the PlayStation Plus free games May 2024 line-up, both EA Sports FC 24 and Tunic are available for both the PS4 and PS5, while Ghostrunner 2 is only for the PS5. Also, all three games have a platinum trophy to unlock.

By far, Tunic has the easiest platinum to obtain. Provided that you set the “No-Fail” mode on, and follow a guide, the platinum can be unlocked in just around 10 hours.

For those of you who obtained the platinum on the first Ghostrunner, you should have an idea of what to expect for Ghostrunner 2. However, the platinum for this game is arguably more challenging and time consuming than its predecessor, as there are several more miscellaneous trophies to work on. Expect around 25-30 hours of gameplay for this one, depending on your skills.

Lastly, while the single-player trophies for EA Sports FC 24 are not particularly difficult, especially if you already have experience with this series, the ease of getting the online trophies entirely depends if you are boosting or not. Expect well over 100 hours for this platinum.

Also, as an added bonus, Sony is including the Destiny 2: Lightfall expansion this month, giving Destiny 2 players even more reason to avoid going outside.

PlayStation Plus Free Games March 2022

Sony is feeling generous these days, and has decided to throw in a little bonus to the next set of freebies. And so, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games March 2022 available for download on Tuesday, March 1.

First, on the PS4, there’s ARK: Survival Evolved, the action adventure with crafting elements, developed by Studio Wildcard. Players can select either single-player or online mode, beam down to a planet inhabited by dinosaurs, and try to survive by building bases, crafting weapons, taming dinosaurs to ride, and fighting an assortment of creatures.

Next for the PS4 is Team Sonic Racing, the next title in the Kart racing series which spun-off from the Sonic the Hedgehog games. Select from a roaster of 15 characters and race your way to the finish line while drifting, performing tricks, and collecting power-ups. Unlike other titles in the series, Team Sonic Racing focuses on cooperative gameplay as you work with your teammates to win.

And for the PS5, there’s Ghostrunner, an action platformer in a cyberpunk setting. Similar to the popular 2008 title Mirror’s Edge, players must run, jump, and grapple their way through dangerous environments while battling enemies with one-hit kills.

All three of these titles have Platinum trophies to unlock.

If played legitimately, unlocking all the trophies on ARK: Survival Evolved is the most challenging and time consuming. However, the game allows the player to input cheat codes during the offline campaign. If using these cheat codes, the Platinum for ARK: Survival Evolved is by far the easiest and less time consuming among the PlayStation Plus free games March 2022 line-up.

While Ghostrunner and be quite tricky and has a steep learning curve, the Platinum can be unlocked in less than 10 hours with enough patience and lots of trial and error.

The difficulty in obtaining the Platinum for Team Sonic Racing entirely depends on your experience with kart-racing titles. On average, expect around 25 hours of gameplay.

Lastly, as an added bonus, Sony is also giving away Ghost of Tsushima: Legends for both the PS4 and PS5. This is a standalone version of the multiplayer add-on to Ghost of Tsushima, where players select from four classes and participate in a variety of game modes including 2v2 battles, survival, and story missions.
