PS Plus has three monthly games leaving for May 2023 soon

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,

April's PS Plus Essential monthly games will be leaving Sony's service in May 2023, making this your final chance to add the three PS5 and PS4 games to your collection.

The PS Plus Essential games April 2023 are on their last legs, so claim the three PS Plus Essential monthly games before they leave on May 2nd, 2023. If you are on the fence, you should check out our Meet Your Maker first impressions.

Though they might not be the best PS Plus games, the three PS5 and PS4 games listed below are well worth claiming before the May 1st, 2023 deadline. As ever with PlayStation Plus Essential games, you can go and download them now to keep them forever. You are also entitled to the three games if you are a PS Plus Extra or Premium Member, though it is worth noting that there is a separate list of 32 PS Plus games leaving at those upper tiers.

A final tip: you can keep these games forever once they are in your library. However, if any of the three games listed come to PS Plus Extra or Premium, like Sackboy A Big Adventure has, then don't claim them a second time. The Essential licence that entitles you to the game will be reset with the Extra tier licence. At the Extra tier, once a game leaves the service it is gone forever, so you'd lose access to the game rather than be able to access it forever as with your Essential licence.
