PlayStation Plus games lineup for May has been announced, and it's a pretty decent one. Take a look at our video to see what you'll be getting.

PlayStation Plus free games for May have been announced and this month is definitely a bit strange, as the lineup is different on the PS4 depending on which region you're from - something that's never happened before.

Namely, players from North America will be getting Giant Squid's Abzu, which is a terrific underwater adventure game where players swim with a variety of sea life in a gorgeous looking environment. Meanwhile, players from Europe will be getting the role-playing shooter Alienation, in which they must defend themselves from an alien invasion on Earth. And the game that will be coming to all regions is Tales from the Borderlands - a hilarious adventure game from Telltale Games. Not a bad lineup for the PS4, not bad at all!

PlayStation 3 owners will be getting the hack-and-slash action game Blood Knights from Deck13 Interactive and the Caribbean simulation Port Royale 3.

The cross-buy Vita games include a musical game Laser Disco Defenders where players have to stop the evil Lord Monotone from tormenting the galaxy with his one and only tune, as well as a platformer called Type:Rider which introduces players to the history of typography.
