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.

The best RPGs for PS5
Outriders Intro to the Trickster

Senua stares ahead wearing war paint.

If there’s one video game presentation happening over the next week that has the most to prove, it’s the Xbox Games Showcase. Despite a strong start to the year with Hi-Fi Rush and a solid Developer Direct showcase, Microsoft’s gaming branch has floundered in recent months because of struggles with its acquisition of Activision Blizzard and the rocky launch of Redfall.
