Tropico 5, God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta Headline PlayStation Plus Lineup For May

Tropico 5, God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta Headline PlayStation Plus Lineup For May

It’s a quality selection of games, but they’re not exactly heavy hitters. Guess that Watch Dogs “leak” didn’t pan out?

As always, though Sony advertises these as “free” games, you need an active PlayStation Plus subscription, which is the opposite of free.

Anyway, here’s a breakdown of what’s coming.

PlayStation 4

  • Tropico 5
  • Table Top Racing: World Tour
  • Switch Galaxy Ultra

PlayStation 3

  • LocoRoco Cocoreccho!
  • Bionic Commando Rearmed 2

PS Vita

  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta
  • Switch Galaxy Ultra


  • I think I would have preferred just Watchdogs to this.

    And I bought, finished, and traded in Watchdogs about 2 years ago.

  • Woah, definitely can’t complain this month. I almost bought Tropico and God of war recently so this is a win

    • Yeah I almost bought Tropico 5 from JB last week for the PC.

      … not quite sure about playing this sort of game on a console though :s

  • I am happy with Tropico and GoW. Games I don’t actually have on each said system for a change. Though I do have the PSP GoW collection for PS3 so eh.

  • Bugger – already own Tropico. But for those who haven’t it’s a pretty good sim city style game.

    • Yeah, I think so. I did they ever actually do a Vita version of GOW other than the GOW collection? Although to be honest I wouldn’t have minded GOW collection on my Vita. But I haven’t played Ghost of Sparta so will at least take a look.

  • Pretty happy with Tropico 5 myself. Have been kind of interested in it for ages, just not enough to actually buy it. I don’t really have any games like this on PS4, so will definitely give it a go. Nice to see an actual retail game on PS+ for a change, too.

    • Yeah I was attracted by Tropico 5, but not enough to buy it. I’ll be happy to give it a go.

  • I think Table Top Racing looks like a fun game and I’ve also wanted to try Tropico, so no complaints here!

  • Tropico… on a console? OK. That seems a little weird. The Tropico series is great on PC, but y’know. PC has a decent mouse cursor. Well that’ll be interesting to try out.

    • I have been intrigued by the game but didn’t want to pick it up on ps4 for this very reason… Will be worth a try but i can never get my head around this kind of game with a controller!!!

    • XCOM worked fine on console, so it’s not like these games can’t work without mouse and keyboard. Just depends on the implementation.

      • It was a little clunky on consoles, but much better than I expected it to be.
        IMO, the best implementation of control system for XCOM was actually on the ipad. That worked just so very well. I was really surprised. It’s kind of a shame 2 isn’t on there, but it’s understandable. It’s pretty demanding even on PC.

  • Ok don’t get me wrong, I LOVED LocoRoco Cocoreccho! but seriously? that game is like 5 bucks and over 7 years old

    • I don’t know if there are a whole bunch of new releases coming out on PS3 these days, so I guess they’re having to raid the back catalogue. But yeah, that’s going a LONG way back…

  • Anyone who hasnt played locoroco cocoreccho should definitely get into that!!!

    A lot of fun late nights in a share house playing that one lmao!!!
