Just in time for Battlefield’s reveal in May.

BF1 in the PS Plus Collection, and BFV as the free PS Plus game for May.

If I were a betting man, EA payed to make BFV free this month, just in time for pre-orders

A game to truly kill off destruction all stars

ID: gw742xr

Destruction: All-Stars killed itself. Shotgun suicide.

ID: gw770zc

I’m very curious how the team’s proposal got accepted. What was supposed to be special about this game?

Destroying other cars feels more satisfying in GTA V

Is there campaign for bf? Any good?

ID: gw6uyfl

Yea there are a few short stories campaign, called untold stories or something like that. I would say the tiger tank story is the best one.

ID: gw80ina

I would say the tiger tank story is the best one.

I hope we have to repair it every five minutes for the authentic experience

ID: gw7fr8k

The one about the French colonial troops and The Last Tiger are both great, the others not so much

I tried Stranded Deep on PS Now. The gameplay feels like something from the early PS3 era. I was disappointed.

ID: gw6ut2y

That's how those survival games feel. I liked The Forest enough so I'm looking forward to playing Stranded Deep for a few hours at least

ID: gw7d58i

how many players would the forest multiplayer be the most fun with, would you say?

ID: gw70crb

I bought it a while back on PS4. It just felt so clunky and not at all engaging. Maybe I'll give it another shot. But with giants like The Forest and Subnautica out there theres not much hope for it.

ID: gw72pxw

Have you tried Subnautica? I went into it not thinking I would enjoy it and left with a Platinum (I only have 2 others so this is rare) it's very damn good and I highly recommend if you dig survival games

ID: gw76a2k

Subnautica was great with the exception of a horrible save system, I had my fully loaded prawn suit glitch through a floor and not having a later save to go back to, I had to leave it there, then my big sub glitched out and at that point I just used the cheats to summon my items back which cancelled out the trophies. I finished it and very much enjoyed it but that save system is like something from the 90's.

ID: gw72v29

I found the gameplay in Stranded Deep very janky, The Forest/Green Hell(on PC with PS4 controller)/The Long Dark all have really responsive controls. Stranded Deep really felt like I was playing a mobile game on my PS4.

Wreckfest PS5 version

4K 60fps 24 player multiplayer Dynamic dirt on vehicles Improved shadows, particles, and environment lighting Higher resolution textures Increased amount of foliage Godrays New visual effects for skidmarks DualSense haptic effects Much faster loading times

EDIT: The link says PS5 upgrade is coming June 1st but the PS Plus post is already mentioning 24 player lobbies etc. I'd guess we'll get the upgrade straight away.

ID: gw6pyu0

i bought into the kickstarter and my computer still isn't good enough to play it well. this basically makes up for that, plus ive wanted some sort of arcade racing game

ID: gw6u7jr

plus ive wanted some sort of arcade racing game

Dude this is me hardcore right now. I wanted something to play with my kids. I bought Dirt 5 which is awesome, but I still have an itch for a better one.

ID: gw6otl3

This is really cool actually, but... was the June release moved up a month or something? Or are we getting the PS4 version?

ID: gw6p708

It says PS5 version on top. PS+ members are probably getting it first before it is available for purchase.

PS5 Wreckfest makes it a decent month

8 : Anonymous2021/04/28 15:31 ID: gw6kmcr

Hyped for wreckfest

ID: gw6l9vv

I played it on PSNow and had some fun. I’m really hoping the PS5 version uses the controller well!

ID: gw6njx3

I love wreckfest on the PC. Def will grab it for free on PS5.

Stranded Deep is a truly clunky and glitchy game, and whilst it has plenty of islands in the world, there are only two types so it’s all pretty much copy paste. The game tells you nothing so you’ll be googling a lot, trying to find out why you’re dying, or what something does. However, there are 3 boss fights, where fighting them is not complicated, but fighting them is quite tense and scary as it’s all in/on water. Learning to survive and making your base, or venturing to new islands is quite fun. There’s a lot of negatives to this game, but it’s really fun if you get into it. If anyone decides to pick it up, seeing as it free, don’t give up when you struggle to start. Stick with it for a few hours, google anything if you’re stuck, and give it a fair try before making your judgement

Hoping BFV is a sign they are gearing up for a reveal of BF6, BFV wasn't amazing but I still had fun with it and still love the series

ID: gw6ymo2

They are. BF socials are on a blackout and they sent out emails that a reveal of the new BF game is coming soon.

ID: gw6p2d6

That’s what i was thinking. Everyone’s been saying battlefield 6 will be announced soon. This is a good way to build hype, especially if they release some kind of next gen patch for battlefield 5 after the announcement. Everyone will hop back on battlefield 5 and remember all of the things that make Battlefield so fun.

Wreckfest is soooo good

12 : Anonymous2021/04/28 15:47 ID: gw6muvp

Buzzing for Wreckfest & happy to give BFV a go.

Now it'll be interesting to see what games are on Play At Home after Horizon.

ID: gw6rvhp

Well, if we follow the trend of giving away games that have a sequel coming out soon... I suspect god of war will be in there somewhere if not next

ID: gw6wxjq

I'm going to guess Gran Turismo Sport.

I would like Gravity Rush 2. I don't think that's been a PS+ game before and it's something different.

Wreckfest being the PS Plus PS5 game for May RIGHT WHEN Destruction Allstars gets its first content update means Allstars is fucking DEAD. Holy shit. This is evil

ID: gw6tz36

Allstars is dead anyway, this doesn't change anything.

Although it might not be the greatest source, it has only 5-15 daily active players on (based on 22000 tracked accounts)

Compare that to e.g. Apex Legends which has around 1150 a day or Modern Warfare with nearly 2000 a day last week

ID: gw739pf

Jesus, that’s low as fuck

ID: gw6vo1r

My first thought seeing this was, "Wow, Destruction All Stars must not be too pleased right now."

ID: gw6x3rw

They can’t comment or complain considering the garbage they produced

ID: gw6oity

Allstars is so boring too

ID: gw6vsgu

It had potential, sadly. One of the fatal flaws was the inability to wreck you friends.

ID: gw6tcse

I've played a bit of D:AS and it's pretty fun...for about 10 minutes. And even that might be ok if you were just looking to kill some time. But it also takes forever to get into a match.

I can't believe they initially were planning to charge full price for the game. I hope the new content is worthwhile and helps create new interest but they may have missed the boat.

ID: gw6uqsy

I downloaded Destruction Allstars when it was free and I decided to play it for the FIRST time last night. I can't change the region (it's stuck on europe for me even though I live in the US), and even when I tried to find a match, I couldn't. The tutorial was kind of fun I guess? Guess I'll uninstall to make room for this new car game.

ID: gw6vwpy

I think the userbase is so small right now that they had to start using a single server. It's pretty dead, not sure if it can ever be revived.

14 : Anonymous2021/04/28 15:41 ID: gw6lwxj

I have played none of these games or any games like them for a while. So, I am actually really excited for this month.

15 : Anonymous2021/04/28 16:44 ID: gw6v8u0

Oh fuck yeah Stranded Deep, been wanting to play that for a while

16 : Anonymous2021/04/28 15:33 ID: gw6ktof

Not too interested in any of these, but let's be honest, with Returnal, RE: Village and Mass Effect: Legendary dropping in the next couple weeks, I wouldn't have time anyway.

17 : Anonymous2021/04/28 16:14 ID: gw6qthx

I hope haptics/adaptive triggers are mandatory for PS5 monthly games

18 : Anonymous2021/04/28 17:21 ID: gw70miu

BFV: 73 on metacritic

Wreckfest: 81 on metacritic

Stranded deep: 64 on metacritic

Not a bad month. Wreckfest looks like a lot of fun, and it's great to get a triple A title like BF for free.

ID: gw7iq2q

BF5 can be fun if you haven't played any other BF game and somewhat don't have any expectations with it. It's road has been very bumpy and still has some features that are still missing from the game which were planned but later scrapped because not enough players.
