Here are all of May’s 2017 Game Releases, DLC, PS Plus and Xbox Gold freebies in one place. Yeh, we’re really nice.

It’s easy to get lost in the sheer number of May 2017 game releases, remasters, re-releases, DLC, and freebies.

You don’t want to get surprised by a huge release because, let’s face it, they cost an arm and a leg. Hell, you might not even have time to play everything after work, studies, and other obligations.

After searching for a list myself and finding page after page of incomplete lists, I decided to do a proper job and collect any and all of the upcoming May 2017 game releases, remasters, re-releases, DLC, and subscription freebies in one place.

I’ve even split them up into handy categories, because who the hell wants a list that’s so long your eyes glaze over?

Not me. Let’s go.

May 2017 game releases by date

Although there are relatively few massive releases come mid-year, there are still plenty of new and interesting games to tempt even the most discerning gamer.

A quick note before we begin though: These dates may change depending on your region (some releases are a couple of days later in Europe). And although I’ve cross-referenced every entry, there are one or two games which have a release date that isn’t set or certain.

Gaming remasters and re-releases this May 2017

Whether they’re being released outside of Japan for the first time, getting a remastered version, or spreading to a different console, there are still plenty of releases in the coming month to keep you occupied.

Hell, you’d have a full schedule even if you didn’t buy a single “new” game.

DLC releases

After the positive reviews for Nier and hype for Nier: Automata’s Steam release, it’s safe to say I’ve been doing a lot of gaming. Nioh is still taking up a huge chunk of my spare time. Then May comes along and sees the release of DLC packs for both of them.

I’m not complaining, I’m just letting you know why I won’t be available for the next week straight.

  • NieR: Automata “3C3C1D119440927” DLC – 2nd May
  • Nioh “Dragon of the North” DLC and PvP update – 2nd May
  • Steep “Winterfest” DLC – 3rd May
  • Forza Horizon 3 “Hot Wheels” expansion – 9th May

PS Plus freebies

Although it doesn’t have the backwards compatibility of Xbox Gold, PS Plus still has a cracking lineup for May. The choice to give American subscribers ABZU and European ones Alienation seems a little odd to me, but both are great games, so no blood, no foul.

Xbox Gold freebies

Xbox Gold have a couple of solid titles in their spring lineup, with a strong Star Wars theme throughout. Also, if you own an Xbox One, remember that the selection of 360 freebies is available to you too.

Backwards compatibility is awesome.

Xbox 360

Xbox One

  • Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (1-31 May)
  • Lara Croft and the Temple Of Osiris (16 May – 15 June)

All in all, these May 2017 game releases are shaping up to give us yet another great month of entertainment. If I manage to clear my current backlog, that is…

If you think I missed any releases, let me know in the comments and I’ll add them to the list!
