All the free Xbox and PS4 games you can download in May revealed

XBOX and PS4 owners can bag two free games in May 2020 – if you meet the right criteria.

You'll need an Xbox Live membership or PS Plus subscription to qualify, which many players will already have.

Xbox Games with Gold – how to get FREE Xbox games

Games With Gold is Microsoft's answer to the free games you get with Sony's PlayStation Plus.

You can get the free games on Xbox if you subscribe to Xbox Live Gold – something that's required for online play.

Then, each month you receive four free games, two on the latest console and two for the previous generation.

These are yours to keep for as long as you have your Xbox Live Gold membership running.

The first freebie is V-Rally 4, a racing game that came out back in 2018.

It was generally well reviewed, and was created by the developer who worked on the official 2017 WRC game.

Players drive any of 51 rally cars from 19 different firms – including Porsche.

And the second Xbox One game is Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr.

This action RPG is set in the Warhammer universe, which was created by Games Workshop.

Gameplay is top-down and involves controlling different classes – similar to Blizzard's popular Diablo game.

It came out in 2018 and was generally well-received.

Microsoft is also giving away a couple of Xbox 360 games (which can still be played on Xbox One, too).

Sensible World of Soccer is a classic football game with a built-in manager mode too.

And Overlord II is a 2007 action RPG where you conquer a land using hordes of small "Minions".

PS Plus – how to get FREE PS4 games

PS Plus is a premium subscription service for PS4 gamers.

It gives you access to online multiplayer as well as exclusive discounts across the PlayStation Store.

But it also nets you two hand-picked PS4 games to download and play each month, which remain available as long as you're a member.

Many PS4 owners will subscribe to PS Plus for the multiplayer alone, so the free games are a pleasant bonus.

In the May roster of PS4 freebies, you get Cities: Skylines.

It's a popular city builder simulation game, which will keep you entertained for hours.

And then there's a slightly odd pick: Farming Simulator 19.

The game is designed to be an accurate simulation of real-world farming.

It's also got a cult following, so don't immediately discount the idea of spending your days driving a combine harvester up and down a virtual field.
