As we say goodbye to another month and welcome in May, Sony has revealed the games that will be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers. May is a month that will bring multiplayer fun via Overcooked, but also award-winning melancholy drama with the incredible What Remains of Edith Finch.
Overcooked is a chaotic cooperative cooking game where you team up with up to four players in local multiplayer to complete orders. Sounds simple, right? You would be mistaken, as various obstacles, crazy level designs and unhelpful partners can turn a smoothly running kitchen into a nightmare. You will all need to work together, with each person filling a role, to pass every level, otherwise you’ll go down in flames.
What Remains of Edith Finch is something of an anomaly. This game blends elements found within the “walking simulator” genre with mini-experiences, each with their own distinct gameplay style. More than anything, however, this is an emotional rollercoaster of a game that has us exploring the home of the Finch family while learning about their untimely deaths. What Remains of Edith Finch took home the best narrative award at the 2017 Game Awards and was nominated for several others.
Sony will update the PlayStation Plus offerings on May 7. You have until then to pick up April’s Conan Exiles and The Surge if you still have not done so.
