Sony is about to reveal the full line-up of PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium games for May 2023. The next wave of PS Plus Extra and Premium games will be unveiled at 4.30pm BST UK time on May 10. The games will be available to play less than a week later on May 16. While there’s a good chance the line-up will leak ahead of schedule, one game has already been confirmed by Sony. Coming to the PS Plus Extra games collection at launch, new puzzle game Humanity will be available as a free download to subscribers.
Described as a “visually stunning and thought-provoking action-puzzle game”, Humanity is playable on PS4, PS5, PSVR and PlayStation VR 2.
“You direct a massive, marching crowd of humans to the light, rebuilding humanity and unlocking new mechanics in the process,” reads the official description. “Command the people to turn, jump, climb, swim, shoot, follow and more to get them to the goal across 90 carefully crafted stages.
“Devious puzzles await you, mixing in more action-focused elements, platformer-like levels, and even epic boss battles. Should you lose a few humans along the way, fear not—death is not permanent in the world of Humanity.
“Any people that fall off a stage turn back into light and walk through the door again.”
Of course, it’s not all good news, because PS Plus Extra subscribers will soon lose access to multiple titles.
Sony has confirmed that 31 games are leaving the service on May 15, including Marvel’s Spider-Man, Kingdom Come Deliverance and NBA 2K Playgrounds 2.
That’s on top of games like Shenmue 3, Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Definitive Edition, Metro Last Light Redux and Homefront: The Revolution.
The news was announced on the PlayStation Blog: “As part of our normal content refresh, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Resident Evil, and NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be among some of the titles leaving the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog in May.
“Members with Game Catalog benefits can still play by May 15. You can always check the ‘Last chance to play section’ on the PlayStation Plus -> Collections page on the PS5 console, or PlayStation Plus -> Games -> Games Catalogue on the PS4 console for titles you might want to play before they leave the service.”
