Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the full line-up of games that will be available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of May..and boy is it a pretty strong month.

Notably, Alienation from developer Housemarque is available for Europe, but not in North America, where it has been replaced with ABZU from developer Giant Squid.

Meanwhile, common among both line-ups is Tales from the Borderlands from developer Telltale Games. Across this five-part episodic series you follow the journey of Rhys and Fiona across Pandora as they are thrown together to recover a fortune they both believe is theirs.

Here’s the full line-up for Europe:

  • Alienation (PS4)
  • Tales from the Borderlands (PS4)
  • Blood Knights (PS3)
  • Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (PS3)
  • Laser Disco Defenders (PS Vita) (Cross Busy with PS4)
  • Type: Rider (PS Vita) (Cross Buy With PS4)

And here’s the full line-up for North America:

  • Tales from the Borderlands, PS4
  • Abzu, PS4
  • Blood Knights, PS3
