Dive into the waters of the first-ever RPG that allows you to play as a shark. Maneater launched last year but quickly became a cult favorite among those that played it.

Along the way, you'll fight various sea creatures, take down shark hunters, and explore a large world with tons to discover.
In the latest installment to the Tomb Raider franchise, Lara Croft is tasked with saving the world from a Maya apocalypse. A continuation of 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider, players will once again have to explore an open world and gather resources en route to taking down enemies who are trying to cause some serious chaos.
Set in a 17th-century fantasy world, Greedfall is an action RPG that will see players exploring new lands filled with magic and fantastic creatures. Throughout the game, you'll be able to level up a variety of skills and help fend off invading settlers that are protected by supernatural beings.

Which is your favorite game you've gotten for free with PlayStation Plus?
With the PS5 officially out now, Sony continues to ensure that players are getting games for both systems. All three games available this month are playable on the PS5, with Maneater actually getting the next-gen version of the title as a PS Plus giveaway. For those that haven't had a chance to experience the game yet, it's worth the download alone to be able to swim freely as a shark, but thanks to its chaotic gameplay and frenzy filled combat, it'll be a fun game to play when you're looking for some downtime.
For those who may have missed out on it when it launched a couple of years ago, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is another incredible installment in the newest Tomb Raider series, giving players another great story to experience along the way. Of course, Greedfall is also available for those looking to dive into an all-new RPG experience.
All in all, these games still represent a ton of different genres for fans to check out for no extra cost, which is what PlayStation Plus is all about.
