PS Plus: Games in May are well known – brings popular “Battlefield in the Middle Ages”
PS Plus Essential May 2023 games for PS5 and PS4 have been officially announced. We will briefly introduce you to the games and show when they are available.
What games are there in May 2023? In May 2023 there will again be three games that you can get with the PS Plus subscription.
- Grid Legends – (PS5/PS4)
- Chivalry 2 – (PS5/ PS4)
- Descenders – (PS5/PS4)
A leak from Dealabs, which predicted the three games as the PS Plus lineup for May 2023, was already circulating in the run-up to the official announcement. The leak was considered fairly reliable, as the site has never been wrong and should be right this time too.
When are the games available? The “PS Plus” games are always available on the first Tuesday of the month:
- May 02, 2023 / 12:00 p.m.: PS Plus – Games available
PS Plus Extra: All information about the new “Game Pass” subscription on PS4 & PS5 – games, costs & services
Medieval battlefield and racing action
Chivalry 2: With Chivalry 2 comes a PvP title as a PS Plus game that delivers chaotic knight battles with up to 64 players.
Your task is, for example, to take up and conquer a position or to defend said position. There are also modes like Team Deathmatch where you don’t have to take points.
The gameplay, like the overwhelming atmosphere of the war depicted, is reminiscent of the shooter Battlefield – only in the Middle Ages and with swords and shields instead of assault rifles and grenades.
In addition to Chivalry 2, the racing games Descenders and GRID Legends are also part of the PS Plus Essentials in May 2023.
GRID Legends: GRID is a Codemasters arcade racer that was released in February 2022 and is the latest installment in the GRID series of games.
The GRID Legends racetracks are often closed courses that lead you through a city, for example, and where spectators can be seen at the track boundaries. In addition, the title offers 120 vehicles from manufacturers such as Audi, Nissan, BMW, Porsche, Ford and Ferrari.
Arcade racing games like GRID or Need for Speed are characterized by driving physics that are not necessarily intended to be realistic. Instead, the focus is on fast-paced racing action – you can sometimes jostle or push.
Descenders: While GRID sends you to the race track in sports cars, in Descenders you throw yourself down a mountain on a bicycle. It is important to avoid obstacles such as trees and to keep your balance. Because if you are clumsy, you will fall off your bike.
An accident ends your attempt to complete the course as quickly as possible and you then have to start the race from the beginning. The tracks themselves are procedurally generated, which can increase Descenders’ replay value.
In addition, Descenders offers a multiplayer mode in which you compete with a number of other players for victory.
