Tribes of Midgard, a co-op action role-playing game, is also coming to the service. The main draw of this title is the survival aspect, as players must work together (or alone in the single-player) to survive in the Norse mythology-inspired world. The game’s cooperative mode supports up to 10 players, making it a game best experienced as a group.

Finally, there’s Curse of the Dead Gods, a roguelike that many have compared to a similar title, Hades. This dungeon crawler throws players into caves on a quest of finding hidden riches with dark magic at their side to help them survive. However, a Curse Meter adds a “risk versus reward” twist to its gameplay.

These three titles are set to hit the PlayStation Plus hub on May 3. Subscribers have until May 2 to go and download last month’s free Plus games, Hood: Outlaws & LegendsSpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom — Rehydrated,  and Slay the Spire.

Persona 5 is also leaving the PlayStation Plus Collection on May 11, 2022.

All through 2022 Sony has been planting seeds for what it hopes to be major new growth opportunities outside of its console and first-party studio output. From mobile and VR to live service, subscriptions, and even multimedia pushes, all signs point to 2023 being a redefining year for the PlayStation brand.
