May 2020 PlayStation Plus: Last Chance For These 2 Free PS4 Games

PS Plus subscribers can get two great simulation games free on PS4, but for only one more day.

89 Comments

PlayStation Plus members still have time to snag May's round of free games on the PlayStation Store before June's lineup goes live tomorrow, June 2. As usual, May 2020's PS Plus lineup consists of two free PS4 games: Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19. You can also download one of June 2020's free games, Call of Duty: WWII, early.

Cities: Skylines is an acclaimed city-building sim in which you plan and develop a metropolis. The game offers a realistic take on the genre, giving you full control over zoning neighborhoods and letting you establish districts and policies.

Farming Simulator 19, meanwhile, has you running a farm business. You'll need to plant and harvest crops, invest your money in new equipment and land, and take care of livestock.

Both games are free for PS Plus members until Tuesday, June 2, so not much time is left to claim these freebies. You can read more about the titles on the official PlayStation Blog.

If you haven't subscribed to PS Plus yet or need to renew, you can get a year-long subscription for a great price right now. On Ebay, you can get a 12-month PS Plus code for $33 via seller NeoGames. This is an official Ebay deal and one we've tested and confirmed ourselves. After purchasing, you'll get a digital code via email within 24 hours, which you can then redeem in the PlayStation Store to immediately start or extend your PS Plus membership.

I'm loving Skylines ... But the game is hard as hell and I wish the PS4 UI were better ... Been watching some videos and the PC version plays a lot better ... Regardless, I've been playing it for so many hours by now ... Hopefully i will be passing the initial states since I always quite due to something going horribly wrong on my little towns 😅

No plus this month. Those games suck. I would rather give myself papercuts on my anus and dip them in lemon juice, then to play those boring AF games.

Skylines is a great game if you're into city builders. Never played the farming sim, but I'll give it a try.

Not sure what people are bitching about: Cities Skylines is an AMAZING game. The console port is solid, with excellent controller defaults.

Easy to start, and enough depth to drain an entire day before you even realize it.

@Pyrosa: The apocalypse has arrived if people aren't complaining about the monthly games.

To be fair though Skylines and Farm Simulator seem kind of similar, at least genre wise. Kind of odd to have both of these the same month. Something like Celeste or Towerfall might have been a better pick for one of the games.

@Pyrosa: Hang on... Serious question: How many of you bitching about these games are PS4-ONLY gamers?

...and how many have never played a simulator/builder game?

...how about turn-based strategy (without any hint of Square-Enix nor any form of anime)?

Consider this month your chance to broaden those horizons (any maybe stretch that IQ) a bit for ~free.

@Pyrosa: your first question doesnt make sense. This is PS Plus. Possibly many of the people here could be PS4-Only gamers.

I honestly dont see your point because....well, you dont have any.

@G-Corleone: Pyrosa is asking if people game on other devices as well as Playstation. People who also have a gaming PC are more likely to have Skylines, and maybe Farm sim too, as strategy gamers tend to be drawn to PC.

Those who game purely on Playstation may not usually try these sorts of games so maybe now is the time to try them out in case you end up liking them.

IQ comment may have been unnecessary though.

@Pyrosa: Maybe some people just don't like this style of game, (that's where I'm at).

And playing these games isn't going to "stretch that IQ".

@nsignific: Maybe should be a wake up call to all the cry babies. We get entire Bioshock collection, entire Uncharted collection, SOTC, Uncharted 4, Journey ++ many more AAA games for free and people still bitch about bad offering or how they "aLreAdy hAve the gAME".

This month is complete garbage though. I was hoping for Dying Light 2 and Dark Souls remastered, I have yet to play them and Dark souls at least is a classic.

@Mozelleple112: PS+ is a subscription service that you pay for. Why do you say PS+ games are free? I know why: because you paid in advance! After that initial $60 sting, the next 11 months must have felt like you were getting free games. Believe me, they weren't free. Sony has made their billions from PS+ and PS Now ($3.2 billion to be exact).

https://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2020/02/04/sony-psn-revenue-2019-subscription-digital/

Subscribers are entitled to their own opinions on the monthly games because they paid their dues.

@Mozelleple112: What in the actual f**k!?!?

You call people crybabies for bitching about PS+ offerings, and then bitch that this month is garbage?

Unbelieveable!

Also: Dying Light 2 doesn't exist.

@aross2004: Since you do not know how to apply logic, let me help you out here.

I'm calling people crybabies for always whining no matter what Sony offers. if Dying Light and Dark Souls remastered was free people would cry about them already having the game or that they are old. if they gave away God of War and Red Dead II people would bitch that they already had it. (I have them both but would be amazed if Sony handed them out next month).

I have been happy with every single month of PS+ for several years straight. I already had Arkham Knight, Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered, to name just a few, but I did not complain, those are amazing games that everyone deserves a chance to play.

now THIS MONTH Sony ACTUALLY gave us the worst month in history, so maybe the crybabies should be a little more appreciative when Sony gives us good months like they have for 48 months straight. if I were Sony, I too would be like **** you guys, here's two garbage games since all you do is bitch anyways.

@Mozelleple112: LOL @ "apply logic". Are you listening to yourself?

Did you stop to think that maybe some people like the games on offer this month? Several in this thread have indicated that Skylines is excellent. So I wonder what you must sound like to them? Maybe you sound like someone who cries about the offerings, (like you're accusing others of doing).

By your 'logic' then, it's OK to complain about the offerings if they're games you DON'T like, but otherwise people are just crybabies if they complain about games you DO like. That's exactly what you're saying.

Sorry, but there's no logic in your statement.

@jyml8582: Umm... farming outdoors isn't banned ANYWHERE. (But yes, I see the humor there.)

In fact, this is THE weekend that anyone who hasn't planted their own food seriously needs to start learning. It's easy: Buy seeds, put in dirt, water thoroughly when dry (NOT daily), remove invading weeds.

...and since that'll take maybe an hour each morning, it leaves the rest of your day for virtual activities like the two solid ~free games here!

@nsignific: Well, that's your opinion, and you're entitled to it. I personally feel Just Cause has some fun to it, but that said, it's mostly just a bunch of mindless action without any real structure or story to it. To me, the quality of an FF game does vary, but at least you're doing something with an ultimate purpose because it does have a story that gives you an incentive to keep progressing within the game. And I do like the combat as well (most of the time, anyway, like I said the quality does vary).

@nsignific: Agreed.

Played FF15 for about 90 minutes, and it is just awful. Haven't liked any of them post-SNES era. Just melodramatic anime garbage, unlikeable characters, filler, and heavy-handed menus/dialog boxes. Would rather grind stats and min/max without all that.

At least Just Cause games are like a sandbox of things you can string together in interesting ways.

Skylines is an awesome game. Already have it and I would suggest you all give it a few hours since it takes a bit to get used to playing a simulation with a controller.

D+ Sony: Could have done better, especially while we are in lockdown.

Due to the myriad farming sims out there I decided to try one about 18 months ago and found it to be one of the most boring micromanagement games I've ever played. My OCD kicked in and I ended up platinuming the game but there is no way I'm ever playing a farm sim again. (Story over😶)

Maybe I'll have a look at Cities: Skyline but it isn't a priority.
