May 2019’s PlayStation Plus games have just been announced, and they make an excellent change of pace from last month’s offering.
Update, May 7th, 2019:
Overcooked! and What Remains of Edith Finch, this month’s PlayStation Plus free games, are now available to download.
If you’ve not twigged yet, we’re going to keep pointing out that there are only two games in PlayStation Plus. We think it’s a bit mean that PS3 and Vita games were taken away, but PS4 games weren’t increased.
Anyway. The news.
Sony has just announced the two PlayStation Plus games for May 2019, and they’re both brilliant. Very different, but equally excellent.
Your PS Plus games for May arrive on Tuesday!

First up, it’s Overcooked, the exceedingly good, exceedingly silly co-op cook ’em up. Developed by Ghost Town Games and published by Team 17, it’s a game that’s going to simultaneously bring you a lot of joy and cause plenty of family arguments.
As for the second game in May 2019’s PS Plus lineup? It’s very different in tone to Overcooked.
What Remains of Edith Finch is a remarkable narrative adventure from Giant Sparrow, published by Annapurna Games. In addition to big wins in the narrative categories at The Game Awards 2017 and the Game Developer’s Choice awards in 2018, What Remains of Edith Finch also picked up the coveted best game gong at the BAFTA game awards in 2018. It also made it onto our best games of the year list in 2017, which is, you know, the one they all want to win.
Overcooked and What Remains of Edith Finch are added to the PlayStation Plus lineup on Tuesday, May 7, 2019.
That means you’ve still got a few days to grab last month’s free games, Conan Exiles and The Surge.
