Yesterday (April 29) saw the reveal of the next free* games headed to PlayStation Plus, but the news has angered a lot of gamers. The line-up for May 2020, which offers subscribers the chance to download Farming Simulator 19 and Cities: Skylines, has left a lot to be desired for some, and what happens when you’re unhappy about something in 2020? You create a Change.org petition, of course!
Yes, gamers are petitioning Sony to ask for “better games” for May. The petition, started by username “Playstation Gamer,” cites the global pandemic as a reason for Sony to provide two different games to the ones on offer.
Earlier this month, a leak suggested that Dark Souls Remastered and Dying Light would be the two games for May, which has apparently led to disappointment with Farming Simulator 19 and Cities: Skylines.
The person who started the petition writes: “After the much anticipated leak surrounding Dark souls remastered and Dying light so many playstation enthusiasts was pumped and hyped looking forward to the best PS Plus lineup in a long time only to be left dumbfounded and forlorn with what seems like a late april fool’s joke in the form of Farming simulator and some rip-off of sim city.”
The user then goes on to add: “Please join us and make the change. Do it for the NHS, do it for all those suffering in isolation.”
At the time of writing, the petition hasn’t seen too much agreement, reaching just 276 signatures.
Whether or not Sony will swap-out the games remains to be seen, but considering the company has just launched the Play At Home initiative, it doesn’t seem like. Earlier this month, Sony offered out two of the best games of all time – the Nathan Drake Collection and Journey – for PlayStation 4 gamers to download and keep for free (even without being a PS+ subscriber).
Known as Play At Home, Sony explained the freebies are to keep people happy, entertained and safe in their homes. It’s likely more games will be coming to PaH once these two are removed during the first week of May.
