In honor of the 10th anniversary of PS Plus, Playstation has announced next month’s free games a little early. Usually game announcements come on the Wednesday before the first Tuesday of the month. But, this month, we get the info a few days early. These are the PS Plus July games, and something a little extra.
First up we have Rise of the Tomb Raider. This was initially a timed Xbox exclusive for a year upon release. It’s the middle chapter of the Tomb Raider reboot series, and follows Lara in her quest through Siberia. She must traverse and fight her way to recover an ancient artifact before a new organization known as Trinity does. Puzzles, gunfights, and large set pieces are where this title shines.
Second up is NBA 2k20. This basketball game has become far more than just a recreation of the traditional game. The addition of the open world component known as the “Neighborhood” makes NBA 2k20 a social game, with a space for players to gather. This title features a new motion engine that accurately recreates player’s signature styles and movements. If you’re a basketball fan, this title is sure to satisfy your craving for the sport.
As a bonus, Playstation is offering a third bonus game this month. Erica is a cinematic experience integrated with player engagement. Boasted as a feature-length adventure, you play as the titular Erica trying to uncover the truth about her father’s murder. All choices influence the story, as well as which of the many possible endings you will see. Be aware that this game does require the use of a smartphone and companion app to play.
PS Plus July Extras
And, just the sweeten the deal, there will also be a free PS4 theme released later on this week. And, for anyone who hasn’t jumped in in PS Plus, there will be a free weekend on the 4th and 5th to try out the service.
