Finally, here are the free games for PlayStation Plus US and EU members!
May is upon us, that means we are getting another set of free games from PlayStation Plus. We already know what’s in store for Asian members but today PlayStation finally revealed the freebies for US and EU subscribers.
PlayStation Plus US and EU members are getting the same set of free games — Overcooked! and What Remains of Edith Finch. The two titles can be downloaded starting May 7th. Let’s take a peek at each.
What Remains of Edith Finch
What Remains of Edith Finch was actually the free game Asian members received last month. It’s a first-person adventure game telling the narrative of the Finch family. Players will take control of Edith as she traverses her family home reliving the memories of the relatives she has lost.
The underlying premise of the game is that the Finch family is cursed and all but one of each of its generation will survive as other members die in unusual ways. The game is heavily story driven and has a linear progression having players explore the Finch house and its surroundings in an orderly succession of scenes.
Overcooked, on the other hand, is a crazy cooking simulation game from Ghost Town Games. It can be played cooperatively or solo, the goal of the game is to prepare and serve food in a limited time frame, all while traversing different obstacles. The game was first released for PC, PS4, and Xbox One back in 2016, with the Switch version following suit a year after.
Overcooked became such a hit thanks to all the craziness you’ll experience from rapidly preparing meals. Obstacles can range from outright movement barriers to moving platforms. It’s best played with your buddies as friendships may be broken and it’s just a lot more fun when several people are clamoring about.
That’s about it for May, be sure to tune in at the end of the month for our coverage of the free games coming this June.
