PlayStation Plus Update News: PS Plus members in North America finally get some free games for May that their European counterparts have had for months.
Sleeping Dogs - Welcome to Hong Kong, a vibrant city whose exotic locations hide one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the Triads. You play Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside. Heralded on several Game of the Year lists, this version of Sleeping Dogs comes with not only the full game, but also three premium DLC packs, including the Retro Triad Pack, the Red Envelope Pack and the Street Racer Pack.
PlayStation Plus has quite a few free games to offer North American members during the month of May as well as some titles leaving the Instant Game Collection. On offer this month for PlayStation Plus members is Sleeping Dogs, Knytt Underground, Germinator, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend and Pinball Arcade. In case you aren’t familiar with any of these games a brief description is below:
Knytt Underground - With an array of thrilling quests, unique zen-like gameplay and plenty of dynamic characters to meet and guide you on your adventure - Knytt Underground delivers a captivating and unparalleled experience. Download and begin your journey to ring the six bells of fate and save this vibrant and enchanted underground world before it’s too late.
Germinator - Germinator twists the bubble genre, wiping away old school match-three games. Crash germ bubbles into those of the same color. Combine and grow them until they explode in a splattering goop. Trigger power-ups to pop them all and mess up the screen.
