It’s that time of the month — May’s PS Plus free games have been leaked. According to Dealabs, a site that has been correctly leaking PS Plus games for a long time, FIFA 22 will headline May’s offerings. It will be a landmark moment for EA and the series, making it the first FIFA game to be included as a free PS Plus monthly title. Co-op survival game Tribes of Midgard from Gearbox and indie Curse of the Dead Gods will complete the line-up.
When will May 2022’s PS Plus games go live?
If the leak is true, FIFA 22 will be available for free for PS Plus subscribers on PS4 and PS5, Tribes of Midgard on PS4 and PS5, and Curse of the Dead Gods on PS4 by Tuesday, May 3rd.
FIFA 22 is the most recent iteration of the famed football franchise from EA Sports. Considering EA has never approved a FIFA game to be part of PS Plus, it is surprising the most recent one is included. However, 22 could be the first and last FIFA game to appear in the service. It has been reported EA will change the name of FIFA to ‘EA Sports Football Club’ after a dispute involving the license with one of the Football’s governing bodies.
PlayStation Plus subscribers are currently offered Slay the Spire on PS4, Hood: Outlaws and Legends on PS4 and PS5, plus the favorite SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated for PS4. All games are available to download until April 4.
