Attention, PS Plus members! We’re happy to share your free PS4 games for next month. Prepare to raise a little mayhem in the depths of hell, or battle brutal bosses in a strange, ruined world.

PlayStation Plus: Free Games for July, 2016

First up, we have Saints Row: Gat out of Hell. Enter the open-world sandbox setting of New Hades and wreak havoc. If you’re even remotely familiar with the Saints Row franchise, you know that over-the-top antics are waiting for you. The developers at Volition have been honing their craft on this franchise, and playing Saints Row: Gat out of Hell is a great way enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Next up is Furi, a new title from The Game Bakers. Built on the premise of making a game that is both simple and deep, Furi is a fast-paced, intense, and ultimately rewarding gameplay experience. While play mechanics allow for an easy approachability, the depth comes from the ways with which you use those skills to take on unique opponents. Furi pits you against guardians, each with his own style, in what feels more like carefully crafted duels than boss fights. The Game Bakers have made something special, and we hope you enjoy it.

Full lineup:

  • Furi, PS4
  • Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, PS4
  • Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, PS3
  • Fat Princess, PS3
  • Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, PS Vita
  • Prince of Persia: Revelation, PS Vita

PlayStation Plus Extra: Paragon

As an added benefit this month, PS Plus members get early access to Paragon before it hits open beta on August 16. Paragon is the new MOBA from legendary developer Epic Games. Besides getting to play the game before it hits open beta, you will also receive a Starter Pack that includes three Master Challenges for the heroes Gadget, Murdock, and Rampage (to unlock skins, XP boosts, emotes, deck slots, and more — a $40 value).

Make sure you take advantage of this huge head start! With a constantly expanding roster of unique heroes, Paragon lets you customize your strengths and play style to complement your teammates and dominate the opposition. Check out the trailer here.

We’ll see you in the comments section. Enjoy.

  • Sale titles and beta’s for free games is a new low!

  • I can care less about these sorry games

    • tanuki_green

      How much less can you care? Could you care a LOT less? Maybe just a little bit?

  • Just like everyone else… FURi, nuff said.

  • aaron_bush_96

    Good games but no space to put them on my 1TB hdd i recently installed in February and only have 79GB left on an 850GB hdd drive (1TB)

    SONY WHY YOU TAKE 100GB off my 1TB HARD DRIVE. i think you need to give people 5% space reserved for 1TB not 10% like on the 500GB, because why is that.
    i have 410GB on my 500GB hard drive. i upgraded the Drive to 1TB and its only 850GB, i think you need to add 2 HDD one 100GB for updates and OS and the 1TB just the user generated content (games, themes, apps, recordings, screen shots and savegames.)

  • .. I LOVE this month. I just buy SR and now i also have Gat out of hell. Oreshika IS AMAZING and never had the chance to play it. GOOOOD MONTH ..

  • For August can WE PLEASE get watch dogs watch dogs 2 looks cool so I want to try it plus it makes sense since the game has been out for so long

  • now wonder Gat out of #ell was on sale so many times…

    Furi is a let down.

    Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is the only saving grace for me IMO.

    other wise gutter trash.

    but i bought Fat Princess when i bought my first PS3.

    so late to the band wagon anyone?

  • So many Saints Row games given through Plus…Kinda would have preferred to main line entry instead of Gat, but still cool. I’ve heard great things about both.

    As far as Prince of Persia: Revelations (Warrior Within) for PSP, I’m personally fine with the PSP games given through Plus. But why I personally am not a fan of is when we receive a game, which is part of a trilogy, yet not the first entry.

    I have personally beat the whole Sands of Time trilogy, but I assume others haven’t. I never tried the PSP versions though, just the PS3 ports, and SoT on PS2. That being said, Warrior Within or “Revelations” is the weakest of the 3, besides the Forgotten Sands which is forgettable, but it’s still a decent game with some cool mechanics. So do try it out after Sands of Time, cause it won’t make a lick of sense.

    P.S.- Why Ubisoft changed the name of these games on PSP, I have no idea. Makes it even more confusing.

  • Really upset that Prince of Persia isn’t PSTV-Compatible. :(
    Anyway the PlayStation nation can get that fixed!?

    Looking forward to Call of Juarez, Fat Princess, and Saint’s Row.

    Curious to try Oreshika and Furi

  • Flanyumiliaan

    STOOOP PSP GAMES FOR VITA PLEASEE, I have oreshika
    I did not get any new game this month. sony pleasee

    • TrueAssassin86x

      Ok Then how about no Games for the Vita lets go with 3 games amonth on Ps3 and Ps4

  • Every month I regret renewing ps+.

    Its a damn shame you need it to play most online games.

    Every month, I feel myself losing interest in games – simply because of the dreadful variety we are offered time and time again.

    Meanwhile,

    look at japans PS+.

    They’ve got such a wide birth of titles, JRPGs aswell – meanwhile, we get shovelware, indies, or games that’ve been on sale 500.

    Pretty pathetic honestly.

    • I find your attitude pathetic, honestly. Not trying to be a jerk, but when you criticize something, expect criticism back.

    • TrueAssassin86x

      Funny every month i’m glad i renewed plus. Between the online storage, the up to 90% off on sales plus the free games. Whiners like u are whats wrong with plus

    • ScannableDrop

      Hey GrapeKiwi!

      We all understand we’re different gamers with different needs and likes. I’m sure half the games that have been released for PS+ you haven’t even played, therefore, you cannot say they are awful games. Give them a chance.

      PlayStation supports Indie games! Indie games are amazing! Smaller gaming companies have to start somewhere, and this is it. It’s their moment of fame. Their name in lights. A chance for those who think, I wonder how that game plays. It gives interest to those indie game companies and supports them so they can keep making games big or small.

      To be honest, the only thing pathetic here is your lack of support for games, gamers, and gaming companies.

  • I give up on expecting good Playstation Plus games. Ever Since Greg Lewickyj has been the manager of Plus, all we get is non-trophy vita games and terrible (usually broken at launch) PS4 games.

  • Not to mention Saints Row Gat out of Hell is currently on sale this week on PSN. Talk about screwing the consumer over that actually just bought the game and now you give it away for free the very next week.

  • a psp game seriously? every month is a disappointment

  • stilldoingitbig

    Awesome month. Four Triple games Four months in a row

  • Overall a solid month, but stop it with the PSP games please.

  • YES, I plan to get Furi, now it’s free for me :)

  • JediSpartan13

    Well I guess that is a good birthday present. Thank you Playstation

  • ThePiePieper

    I really need to take off the auto renew for plus. This is just getting ridiculous.

  • bbswarrior_11

    I´m so glad it wasn´t The evil within. It would´ve been great for others but I already bought it day one. Furi is a game I´ve been looking forward to and it´s so cool we´re getting it in the Plus line-up. And Gat out of Hell will prove to be entertaining, as per usual with SR games.

  • So What Happened To Watchdogs, The Evil Within, Or Resident Evil 6. But No We Get Saints Row And Furi. SMH Thank You PS Plus For Punching Us In The Face Once Again

  • I’m pretty happy with this lineup! Furi Yes!

  • Epic summer of gaming and it started last month!! Hopefully all summer long the games will be this good!

    Thanks Sony!!!!!

  • mynameisvinke

    Those whining about the PS4 lineup clearly have not seen, heard, or even bothered to know what Furi is.

    That indie looks absolutely kickass, mixing Hack&Slash and bullet-hell with a kickass soundtrack to boot (by Carpenter Brut, no less!)

    Don’t drop it ’till you try it.

  • Amazing lineup again, happy that I got 12 month plan and both ps3 and ps4! So much value, thank you sony!

  • Solid month. I was kinda interested in Furi.

  • I think this PS Plus lineup is okay. Not a big fan of the Saints Row games, never heard of Furi, Call of Juarez Bound in Blood might be something interesting, same goes to Fat Princess, Oreshika Tainted Bloodlines is just something to keep the PS Vita going despite it’s lack of AAA support, and Prince of Persia Revelations is basically a port of Warrior Within. Overall, it’s not a great lineup, but it’s not that bad.

  • shadymercs93

    I guess it’s ok, REALLY don’t think saints row is worth playing. Considering they are all kind of crappy after the 2nd. But it’s free so hey. Hope there is a bigger title next month.

  • the PS4 games look great, the others are not especially for the vita

  • Nothing worth downloading again

    • tanuki_green

      Wow. Thank you for this comment, citizen. If I hadn’t seen this, I might have made the dire mistake of looking at these games for myself and might have even wasted time downloading them to my PS4. It’s even possible that after that I may have, I don’t know, PLAYED them to see what I thought of them. Thank you so much for saving me all this time and effort.

    • Lmao

  • YESS Furi and saints Finally I AM COMING BABY

    and tbh i was going to buy paragon pack but i will get for free HORRAYYYYY

  • Love the new lineup! Only issue with it is that I already own Oreshika. But that just proves to me that I have good taste. Me FTW!

  • TurdFerguson204

    It’s cute, the people who thought that we were going to get some huge AAA game this month. We got one last month, 6 months into the year. Don’t expect another big game until around December. It’s going to be nothing but indie titles for the next few months. And Gat Out Of Hell is a waste. If you liked Saints Row, you will be disappointed in that one. Also, huge missed opportunity in that game, them not licensing “I Would Do Anything For Love” by Meatloaf. Furi looks to be a one trick pony, just like almost every other indie game out there. “Hey, Bob, we’ve got this gimmick for a game” “That’s looks mildy interesting, Dave. Lets make the player do only that thing for a whole game and charge them $20 for it.” “Sounds great, Bob, certainly beats making an actual game!”

  • If you ever feel disappointed by a month’s offering consider the price and model you are paying for. PS+ (in Canada) works out to about $4.16 a month. In addition to getting some great instant game collection games every month, you are also building on a library of games from previous years.

    I renewed recently not for the newest releases, but to maintain a great collection of titles including Helldivers, Resogun, Rocket League, Virtues Last Reward, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Valiant Hearts, Guacamelee STCE, Velocity 2X, Mercenary Kings, Muramasa Rebirth, Transister, Spec Ops: the Line, and Sleeping Dogs. Those games alone are worth $4.16 a month (14 cents a day) to me.

    • I think my ps+ already paid itself on extra discounts we get in deals, let alone free games many of which worth digging into. PS+ alone is a great reason to own a playstation.

  • If you are going to continue giving away PSP games and claim they are VITA games, atleast have the decency to give away good ones. Honestly, this lineup isnt as terrible as prior months but the fact that you all continue to shove awful PSP games into one of the 2 Vita slots every month is getting old fast. Nobody wants a crappy prince of persia psp game on their vitas, stop it sony.

  • superfunstudio

    Sony, clearly PLUS is a great value for me.
    Just that, since you’re asking, please stop the PSP games on PLUS.
    PSP is a dead platform.
    This dead software is starting to smell bad.

    • LOL to true. I don’t want anymore PSP games for my Vita, I want Vita games for my Vita. I do have to say that Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines looks pretty sweet though.

  • I bought Saints Row Gat Out of Hell last night from the Summer Sale, and today it’s announced for Plus. Is there no communication between people at Sony making these decisions? I did call Sony today to request a refund, but I won’t know for 3-5 business days if they’ll do that.

    I’m disappointed that we’re receiving PSP games for Vita and very old games for PS3 that most gamers bought years ago. I don’t mind old games, but the trend has been only those the past few months.

  • AbruptlyBlue

    This month looks good but that is only because the last number of months of have been complete let downs.

  • This is a good line up, not very excited about any of these games. But good line up. I just really want to get The Madden game on Vita, I can’t find any real copies for a decent price, but I would love a digital copy until I can find one. So PLEASE give us a Madden for Vita, and not the damn PSP ones either.

  • Fat Princess is cross-buy?

  • StrangeMunch1991

    do those of us with Gat out of Hell already get a credit to our account?

  • OneManArmyAndres

    PARAGON!

  • wow, great month, thx sony

  • death_nation100

    Wowee this is a good line up of games finally some goody titles its been two years since we got a good set of free plus games . Man i loving this summer!!

  • Nice lineup…was planning to play Gat out Hell on PS3 but now that you guys are giving it for free I may have no choice but to play it on PS4…damn.Looking forward to Furi no wonder I’ve never heard about it…its a new game hu,nice job making it be a free game on release cuz it looks great.

    I must say that Bound in Blood is a great game,y’all that didn’t played it and like FPS should definitely try it.

    Might try paragon.

  • BlueBl1zzard

    Dang! Totally wasn’t expecting Furi! I’m totally looking forward to that! I would have loved to buy it though to support the devs. That’s another vote from me to allow PS+ users to buy games that were once free. I know others would like to see that functionality as well.

  • atomheartmudder

    *sigh.

    Gat Out Of Hell is already on sale for $4.99, so I’m sure the majority of people who haven’t played but want to probably just bought it. Call of Juarez is what, 6-8 years old now? Fat Princess is also no spring chicken.

    Furi looks alright, and I’ll give that a shot. But alas, another relatively ****** month.

    Last month was the best in months. I’d wanted to play Gone Home for quite some time but didn’t want to shell out the $20. But, and I’m sure lots of people feel similarly, **** NBA. Finally an AAA game and it’s a sports game. :/

    If I didn’t need PS+ for online play (Bloodborne & DS3) I would not renew.

    Unfortunate.

  • TheSoulGuardian

    Always a game I already own… I’m afraid to buy games anymore! A week later they will be free! ugh.

  • nothinOfWorth

    Not bad at all, can’t wait. Hopefully the witcher 3 and GTA V for August.

  • Once again PS4 users get shafted. They got our hopes up last month offering NBA2k16 which is a $60 game only to come back and give us a craptastic DLC( IDGAF if it’s the ‘standalone’ version it’s still DLC ) for a Craptastic game that flopped so hard.
