    cant see Play 5 any ware on EW downloads, I know play 6 is up for grabs for free but seems a bit strange since play 4 is still hanging in there.

    Any reasons why they have removed play 5

    EW removes deprecated versions of Play from the support page, but the actual download links themselves remain active. You can use the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine to pull up past versions of the EW site that will show the download links.

    pmcrockett already told you how to get older links, but I'd like to provide a bit of context as to why an "in-between" version has been removed while the old one is still around and featured prominently. The reason for this is that PLAY 4.3.5 is the last version of PLAY that works as a 32-bit plug-in. Their philosophy is to only ever provide the latest version except for users who need 32-bit - for those, the latest 32-bit ready version (4.3.5, an old version) is still available.
