Gamers now know what free games they will receive in May with their PlayStation Plus subscription. 

On the PlayStation Blog, it was announced that Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19 will be free throughout the month of May. The games will become available on May 5th, and will be available to download until June 1st. 

Cities: Skylines is a city builder sim developed by Paradox Interactive. The game has players take control of a small and bustling community as they try to build it into a megacity. The actions of the player will decide whether their city succeeds, or fails and collapses. Players will need to use their strategic thinking to make sure their ever growing populace stays happy, and that the industries that are crucial to their expanding city continue to thrive. 

Farming Simulator 19 provides players a rural escapism from the stress of city life. Players will harvest crops, raise livestock, ride horses, or drive around in their John Deere tractor or one of 300 other vehicles. 

Those who have not downloaded their free games for the month of April still have time to get them. April's games were Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, as well as DIRT Rally 2.0. Gamers have until May 4th in order to download them.

The free games that are available at the moment from the Initiative are Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey. The games will be available until May 5th. Once the games have been downloaded, their are yours for keep. It is unknown if and when another set of games will be released through the Initiative, and which titles will be chosen.
