PS Plus May 2022 free games, release time, leaks and predictions for PS fans

It's been quite an eventual year for PS Plus, what with Sony's massive announcement that it'll merge with PS Now to create a true competitor to the Xbox Game Pass service.

That new Sony service won't be rolling out until later this year and in the here and now, players simply want to know what free games they can look forward to next.

Those of you strapped for cash right now should scroll down to the bottom of the page to see what PS4 and PS5 freebees are currently available.

But for those who want to know what's coming next, when they're releasing and more importantly if there's been any leaks hinting at what will be available, read on.

PS Plus May 2022 leaks and predictions

It used to be that Sony's PS Plus announcement was a closely guarded secret, but more recently we've seen some fairly reliable leaks from the exact same leaker – Dealabs user billbil-kun.

Though we've not seen any leaks related to the PS Plus lineup for May 2022 (yet), we're fairly confident it will leak ahead of time.

That's because every PS Plus lineup since September 2021 has been successfully leaked by billbil-kun before the official Sony announcement.

As for predictions, you'll find plenty of those online, but truthfully they're normally a load of old nonsense.

Yes, we could predict three random games that might be made available for free, but with such a vast library on the PS4 and PS5, it's complete guesswork. Not least because the selections rarely fit any sort of logic or theme.

When does Sony announce the PS Plus May 2022 free games?

Most console owners might know how this works, but given that more and more PlayStation owners are subscribing to PS Plus every month, we'll outline how this works for the new players joining the PlayStation nation.

Traditionally PS Plus games are always announced on the last Wednesday of the month at 4.30pm. Usually we'll see some sort of announcement made on Sony's social channels, along with a new post on the official PlayStation blog. There's the odd exception to the rule, but normally the PS Plus announcement time is like clockwork.

For anyone without a calendar to hand, that means we should see the new PS Plus May 2022 lineup revealed on Wednesday, April 27.

When will PS Plus May 2022 games release?

Again, Sony likes to release their PS Plus games at the same time every month. New free PS Plus games are made available to download from the PSN store on the first Tuesday of the month.

Sometimes this does mean players are left waiting a little longer to get their mitts on the new PS4 and PS5 freebies, but that's just the luck of the draw some months.

We should see the PS Plus May 2022 free games released on May 3.

What games are free with PS Plus now?

In case you've forgotten, right now you can download three free games with your PS Plus subscription.

Even if you don't fancy playing them right now – maybe you're still glued to Elden Ring or Horizon Forbidden West – you should still go to the store to claim your free games and add them to your account.

As long as you maintain your PS Plus subscription those games will be available to you; and right now you can add the following to your catalogue of forever freebies:

  • Hood: Outlaws & Legends (also available with a PS5 upgrade)

  • Slay the Spire

  • SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated
