PlayStation Plus May 2020 Free Games… An Absolute Surprise

By Sohrab Khan 29 Apr, 20



My, Oh My! I know of a curveball situation when I see one, but I will be honest; I was taken by surprise by the recent lineup. Surely, none of us expected that, and for once, I am happy it wasn’t as the rumors suggested.

For well over days, the internet had been showcasing a substantial, possible leak that made many gamers excited, and folks like me left with a long face. Why? I own one of the leading games that were allegedly headlining the month of May 2020.

If you were living under a rock and missed out on the rumors, it had a compelling image of Dying Light and Dark Souls Remastered. I am a massive fan of the Dying Light game; it is chaotic, to say the least. However, my cries were heard somehow, and we ended up with a completely different lineup. I wouldn’t say I am pleased with the alternative either, but I know my kids and wife are going to have a blast. So, let’s dive in and see what’s what.

Cities Skyline

If you have been playing games since the 90s, chances are you are already familiar with city building games such as Sims City and others. The concept remains the same; You create your own metropolis from scratch, provide it with the supply of water, gas, electricity, and all the goodness you can think up of. Hours of fun or just a few minutes of amazement before perpetual boredom? Well, we will have to play this one to find out. 

Ratings? Well, I will be honest with you that I have no doubt this would have scored around the 6.0 region; however, never rely completely on these numbers. Sometimes, games with low scores can truly be amazing to play. I hope that is the case with this one. Otherwise, I would not be using my PS4 in the month of May at all and just stare at my wife and kids create and destroy cities after cities. 

Farming Simulator 19

Okay, confession time: I was actually tempted to buy this one. My wife and I had a look at the trailer and the gameplay, and we found it fun. In my defense, we were already under lockdown and wanted to play something a little less tense than Warzone or PUBG. This seemed like the perfect pick. Thank God I ran out of funds. Otherwise, I would have been rather crossed about this entry.

The game looks promising and surprisingly relaxing. You are a farmer who has just bought a barn, and you try your best to do everything to ensure your investment turns into heaps of profits. With exquisite machines, insane attention to detail, and beautiful scenes at the backdrop, this game holds a charm I can’t just wait to experience in person.

That is it for this month. What do you think about this lineup? Yay or Nay? Let us know in the comments below. Until next time, take care!
