Another month, another batch of games available to PlayStation Plus subscribers. As usual Sony has announced six new games that will be downloadable next month.

On the PlayStation 4 end you'll be getting Tropico 5 and Table Top Racing: World Tour. Tropic 5 is a dictatorship game where you have to try and run a country while ensuring that you stay in power at all costs, using dirty tactics like assassinating political rivals and rigging polls. During this you'll also be building up a city and trying to make a decent economy. Table Top Racing: World Tour is closer to a kart racer and sees you going through strange courses and picking up power ups to launch at other players.

On the PlayStation 3 side of things you'll be getting Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and LocoRoco Cocoreccho!. The sequel to the original game, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is a classic side-scrolling game that sees players using their grappling hook arm to swing from platforms. LocoRoco Cocoreccho! is described as an "interactive screensaver" and has you playing a butterfly that needs to collect LocoRocos to keep expanding the level and to play minigames. The game, notably, can be left alone and will play itself as well.

Finally our PlayStation Vita games, which this month are God of War: Ghost of Sparta and Switch Galaxy Ultra. The second handheld entry into the series, and actually a PlayStation Portable game, God of War: Ghost of Sparta sees you stepping back into the role of Kratos to try and save his brother. Switch Galaxy Ultra on the other hand is a fast paced arcade racing game where you need to hop rails to avoid various obstacles. Notably Switch Galaxy Ultra has cross-buy and will also be available on the PlayStation 4.

As usual all games will become available on the first Tuesday of the month, this being May 3rd. This is your last chance to grab the current line-up of games which includes Dead Star and Zombi for the PlayStation 4, I Am Alive and Savage Moon for the PlayStation 3, and A Virus Named Tom and Shutshimi for the Vita.
