Exploring through sands is easier than ever with touch-responsive controls and an online multiplayer mode let you meet with others. However, you can only meet them in-game to offer help and communicate using emotes.

If anyone has been wondering if there is any chance of the game seeing a Nintendo Switch port anytime soon, Annapurna has made it clear that their current plan is limited to iOS and PC platform but we can have some hope though.

PlayStation Plus Free Games for May 2019

PlayStation Plus free games lineup has picked up What Remains of Edith Finch and Overcooked for the month of May 2019.

For past few months and since the beginning of 2019, Sony Entertainment has been offering some decent PlayStation Plus titles on their free monthly games lineup and we wouldn't want them to break that cycle anytime soon for their monthly subscribers.

PS Plus members had fun times with some action role-playing experience with The Surge and survival game Conan Exiles. Depending on what everyone likes, we have a look at what is up ahead in May 2019 and it looks mediocre at best.

May kicks in with adventure game What Remains of Edith Finch from developer Giant Sparrow and publisher Annapurna Interactive. Its story centers on last member of Finch family, Edith Finch and an old family curse that claimed them all.

General reception towards the title is mostly positive due to a very gripping narrative presentation. Though players have little option to interact with each family member, it offers better experience than many other walking simulators out there.

Our next free game is a cooking simulator title Overcooked by developer Ghost Town Games and publisher Team17. You are tasked to control a number of chefs to prepare meals for customer orders and serve within a certain time.

Of course, you have to go through various kitchen hazards and obstacles while you are at it but that is what makes things interesting. Also, tagging along with up to four friends in a fun co-op play via local multiplayer would be more exciting.

Compared to what PS Plus subscribers were used to get for their bucks up until March 2019, Sony Entertainment has been offering only two games per month instead of six and most of them are indie games, not compatible with everyone's choice.

Now that cross buy feature is gone since Sony has decided to cease support for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita games, regular members are wondering whether or not is it worth to continue their subscription for cheap games.

The player character will be exploring deaths of several members of Finch family in their long abandoned house. You ought to take the role of deceased family members died in bizarre and tragic ways years ago while investigating the blight that befall upon them.

Even though the title plays out in a slow paced motion where players are on a quest to discover how a generation died of unnatural causes while reliving those memories and having Edith Finch narrating the events that took place prior gives out a lot of creepy vibe, this is still not a horror game.

What Remains of Edith Finch is considered as one of the best first-person stories by critics and fans alike and having it on your collection is worth it for sure. If you have already played before and were looking forward to play again, now you have a great excuse to do that.

What up next on the list of free giveaway of Epic Games Store is The Jackbox Party Pack, a series of party games from developer/publisher Jackbox Games and it comes on January 24 to stay up till February 7, 2019.
