Here's Your PlayStation Plus Update for May (NTSC Edition)

Lee Bradley

Here we go with May's offering of free, discounted and time-exclusive PS Plus content. There's some great stuff in here.

The PSN titles in particular are all excellent. Indeed, such is their quality that it's hard to pick a highlight. The quirky team-based shooter Awesomenauts, the gorgeously-lit Trine 2 and the bonkers castle-smasher Rock of Ages are all worth your time. And they're all free, of course.

As are Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania Chronicles, a couple of old-school vampiric classics. Plenty to sink your teeth into I think you'll agree (sorry).
