To quote: PlayStation Plus returns with another month of fantastic free games and awesome exclusives that have subscribers around the world believing in Plus.
Kicking things off in May is new release Awesomenauts, FREE for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Watch the trailer below!
This colorfully action packed 2D online multiplayer battler with split-screen gameplay is releasing on May 1st.
You'll storm the game's online battlegrounds and unlock loads of new abilities and characters for your arsenal. For more details on Awesomenauts come back to the blog a little later today - developer Ronimo will have more details on the game and will stick around to respond to your comments and questions.
PSN hit Trine 2 joins the free games selection in May, boasting widespread critical acclaim and a dazzling fantasy world.
Don't miss out on one of the prettiest titles in gaming - grab Trine 2 for free on Plus this month. Not enough for you? How about getting Rock of Ages for free when it releases on PSN?
The acclaimed mix of tower-defense strategy and rolling ball physics (trust us, it's fun will keep you in stitches with the game's quirky humor and ultra-addictive gameplay modes.
May also brings the free release of PS one Classic Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania Chronicles. For many of you, Castlevania: SotN needs no introduction. If you've never had a chance to experience what many fans consider to be the definitive Castlevania game, you now have no excuse.
Castlevania Chronicles, on the other hand, is based on the original Castlevania but is no less engaging than SotN, especially given its blistering challenge. Gamers who are looking for a classic challenge need look no further!
Saints Row The Third will be available on 5/8 as a PS3 Full Game download. If you missed out on this insane open-world epic last fall, you may want to jump on it as it will have a 20% discount when it releases.
If you've had your eye on PixelJunk 4am, you'll be happy to hear that Plus subscribers get exclusive access to the game's beta! All PlayStation Plus subscribers will get access to the online viewer where you can watch performances built in this musical PlayStation Move experience that immerses you in the creative flow of making music.
