Another month, another set of free PlayStation 4 games for PS Plus users. This time though the titles are actually worth it. I say that because PlayStation Plus has unfortunately gained a reputation for not offering a decent lineup these past few years. This changes for May 2017 due to being headlined by Tales From the Borderlands and ABZU. Both PlayStation 4 experiences will be available to download next Tuesday on May 2nd.

If you’re a fan of Telltale Games then Tales From the Borderlands is definitely for you. It’s considered cannon in the world of Pandora and takes place after Borderlands 2. The classic Telltale formula is present, but is arguably one of the company’s better outings. I realize that doesn’t mean much since most of Telltale’s creations are pretty awesome. Luckily, it appears this won’t follow A King’s Quest where only the first episode was available for PlayStation Plus users. Games will receive access to all five entries.

ABZU is a beautiful underwater exploration title that was created by the art director of Journey. It was met with near universal acclaim when it released back in August 2016. Personally, I was holding out hope that it would be a PlayStation Plus title because the twenty dollar price tag was a bit steep for three hours of gameplay. So yay me I suppose.

Technically, the PS4 will receive two additional entries for the month of May thanks to Cross Buy. The PlayStation Plus titles for the PS Vita consist of Laser Disco Defenders and Type:Rider. Again thanks to Cross Buy, you’ll be able to play it on your console as well. The remaining free games of May are Blood Knights and Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants for the PlayStation 3.

Are you happy with May’s PlayStation Plus lineup? Have you already played both advertised games? Let us know in the comments below!

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is getting closer and closer, and Activision has announced when players will be able to get their hands on the next game. This means that there will be several chances to try it out before it comes out. If you paid a lot, you might be able to play for more than a week at the end of August and beginning of September.

Call of Duty Early Access will run from Friday, August 30th, to Wednesday, September 4th, as announced on its blog. This is two days after the Call of Duty Next showcase, which is set for August 28th. To play, you must have already bought Black Ops 6.

The open beta is the following weekend, and anyone who wants to can join. The fun will start on Friday, September 6th, and end on Monday, September 9th. The full release is set for October 25th of next month on PS5 and PS4.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
