Tales from the Borderlands and Abzu Headline May PlayStation Plus

Your monthly fix of gratis games brings Telltale's take on Pandora and an underwater adventure.


Sony's PlayStation Plus offerings for May include a highly-regarded Telltale adventure game and a bit of underwater exploration. While it lacks the cohesive Star Wars hook of May's Games with Gold on Xbox systems, it's a pretty solid line-up.

Tales from the Borderlands was Telltale's stab at expanding the lore of the Borderlands franchise, with some tie-ins to the main series. We really liked it here at Shacknews, so all five episodes makes for an easy recommendation. The other PlayStation 4 offering for the month is Abzu, the underwater exploration game often compared to Journey.

On PlayStation 3, players will get Blood Knights and Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants. Vita offers Laser Disco Defenders and Type:Rider, both of which offer cross-buy with PS4.

      Booo! I'm always sad when games I buy end up being the freebies.

        I've heard good things about Tales from BL. Is it still good if you haven't played the main games?

          I'd say its worth playing because the story has interesting new characters and the story its super fun and hilarious, as a fan of the franchise Tales is one of the best written Borderlands games imo.

          That said, right from the first episode you get some huge Borderlands 2 spoilers, I'd say playing at least Borderlands 2 would get you a better idea of these characters' backstory but if you dont plan on playing it its no big deal, the game on its own its great.
