PlayStation Announces Extra PS Plus Bonus Exclusively For PS5 Owners

The free PlayStation Plus games for May 2021 have been announced, and Sony is once again serving PlayStation 5 owners with a subscription the best possible selection.


It's not that PlayStation 4 owners don't get anything, mind you. From May 4 PS4 owners subscribed to PS Plus can download Battlefield V and Stranded Deep to their library. That's not too shabby at all. It's just that PS5 owners get those games, plus exclusive access to the next-gen version of Wreckfest: Drive Hard Die Last - a full month before non-PS Plus subscribers get the privilege of paying for the upgrade.


"Burn rubber, break rules and shred metal in this full-contact racer from the creator of the FlatOut," Sony writes of the demolition derby sim on the PlayStation Blog. "Race and upgrade patched-together cars, improving their looks and toughening up their body armour to survive the epic crashes and neck-to-neck fights over the finish line in competitive races. Enjoy some hilarity in Challenge modes as you get behind the wheel of crop harvesters, three-wheelers and much more, then challenge your friends online in multiplayer up to 24 players."


Publisher THQ Nordic has yet to say anything on the subject, but PlayStation has made it pretty clear that PS Plus subscribers are getting the PS5 version of Wreckfest. This is a particularly juicy bonus, as the upgraded version of the 2014 racing game doesn't officially launch until June. If you're a PS Plus subscriber, it's yours from May 4.

The PS5 version is set to receive a raft of enhancements too, including 4K 60fps gameplay and upgrades that make the most of the impressive DualSense controller. If Sony can keep exclusive treats like this coming for PS5 owners, there'll be some very happy gamers out there. Of course this is also bound to deeply annoy the many PS4 users who are only still using the last-gen console because they find a next-gen machine anywhere.
