Battlefield V (PS4)

Battlefield V is a classic! If you’ve not managed to play this fun first-person shooter yet, what are you waiting for? It was released in 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but still holds up today. It’s the sixteenth Battlefield game, and one of our favourite shooters of all time! Do yourself a favour and immerse yourself in the hard-fought battles of World War 2.

Stranded Deep (PS4)

Stranded Deep is a fun little sandbox experience that we weren’t expecting to see this month! In this game, you’ll test your survival skills in a huge open world after a crash-landing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Alone, without any means to call for help, you must do what you can to survive.

Not for those who are terrified of the ocean, but building, crafting, and (eventually) escaping is a really fun game we highly recommend trying out for yourself!

Wreckfest: Drive Hard, Die Last (PS5)

For fans of the FlatOut series, the franchise Wreckfest is a familiar name. It’s been described as the spiritual successor and a cross between FlatOut, Destruction Derby and cult 1989 PC racer Street Rod. Sounds great to us! You can expect epic crashes, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line and brand-new ways for metal to bend. Best of all, it has a true-to-life physics simulation crafted by legendary developer Bugbear, who also brought you FlatOut 1 & 2!

All games will be available for PlayStation Plus members to add to their library until Monday, May 31.
