Sony has revealed the three video games coming to PlayStation Plus in May 2021.

Arriving on PlayStation 4 is EA’s World War 2 shooter, Battlefield V. You may recall the game had something of a rocky launch in 2018. However, two years of updates have patched it up nicely, and the finished product is an FPS of the highest calibre. It’s well worth playing in both solo and multiplayer.

Also coming to PS4 is Stranded Deep, a Pacific Ocean-set survival adventure from Beam Team Games. The game had a troubled journey from PC and was somewhat overlooked on its console release last year. Its inclusion with PS Plus gives us the perfect opportunity to check it out.


Finally, PS5 owners get an extra game in Wreckfest. Bugbear Entertainment’s acclaimed racer gets a next-gen upgrade that features 4K60 visuals and online multiplayer support for 24 players.

All three games are available to download for PlayStation Plus subscribers between May 4-31, 2021.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
