    Just Cause 3 is halfway decent, everything else is weaksauce. Last month was definitely better. No money for you this month. *shrug*

  • rodrigogmachado

    Why in Brazil we are not getting Just Cause 3???????

  • Good job ps good job. Already have freedom cry cant win them all i reckon. Well anyways love just cause 1&2 so im sure ill love 3.

  • oXUltimatumXo

    This is an amazing line up! Thank you so much Sony!

  • JuggaloHomie4321

    Finally !!! Games that are story choice games!! Good lineup too bad i already own Freedom Cry cause i own AC 4 Gold Edition but hey ive never played Just Cause and now i get too!

  • death_nation100

    Although i’m excited that Level 22 is gonna be free but you can tell that they’re giving away the most random indie games on PS3 and Vita just for it can collect dusts now that PS4 finally have AAA titles that you gamers been asking for since 2013. So harsh on Sony and the Gamers.

  • Fantastic lineup…Just Cause alone makes it,although I want it in disc,already got Freedom Cry for PS3 but looking forward to Super Motherload (btw if y’all don’t know the game has an amazing soundtrack) and Downwell is a good offering too.

    Dunno about Snakeball and Level 22…will have to check them out.

    Great great month…should silence the whiners but why do I have the feeling people will still complain?…lol.

    • Yeah, the soundtrack of Super Motherload (by Eric Cheng) is incredible. I even bought the vinyl LP for it. :)

      Also, I believe Super Motherload is Cross-Buy between the PS3 and PS4. Or at least I only remember buying it for the PS3, but also had access to the PS4 version as well.

  • Nice to see some consistency with the Plus games. Like what I’m seeing as I wouldn’t have bought either of the 2 games being offered which I’ll get to finally have a chance to play.

    Looking forward to adding these to my library. Hope you guys continue doing what you do. This genis all about PS4. :-)

  • Irando_Tafula

    Sony advised you to monitor the Brazilian PSN blog for you to see the amount of complaints, because PSN plus Brazilian games are different from the American and European ones, because again we won another indie, where is the improvement in the games you promised? SONY TRASH !!!

  • Alberto_Alves94

    I want Just Cause in PSn BR, every month u give to us the same game from USA, why just now when a AAA title come u decide to change? I’m not a free trial tester, I paid PS+ since 2014, give to us a better support, we buy your product, and want to have the same support

  • KazeEternal

    “Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, PS4”

    I feel like I just got cheated out of a game here. This was DLC for Black Flag. It wasn’t that long and no where near as rewarding as The Last of Us’s Left Behind. No where on the level of Lost Legacy.

    Not appreciated.

  • RIP latinamerican users.

  • xBrutalPowerz

    Pretty Decent Lineup.

  • Skullphukd-

    Hey Sony, Microsoft has been consistently kicking your *** when it comes to free games. You rarely offer good free games, what’s up with that? Just cause 3 got old within weeks of playing it, and we’re all sick to death of assassin’s creed. Another botched month.

  • Until Dawn last month, Just Cause 3 this month. Bout damn time PS+ gets back on track. (I totally just jynxed it, didnt I?)

  • great line up for this month… also very excited for those movies! already rented the lego batman movie :)

  • Do you guys from sony hate us from brazil or what? You are giving a big triple-way for everyone, and for us you give a indie game that no one konws? that is sort of injustice, i just wanted to know why are you guys doing it with us. And i’m not even complaining that you guys just raised up the price for the hole service. The thing are already too messy around here without this injustice

  • Fairly good month, nice to see a AAA title for the PS4 for a second month in a row. I don’t actually think that’s happened yet, has it??

    Do have one slight complaint though – why wouldn’t you just give us Black Flag Gold Edition at this point? It includes that DLC that you’re giving us this month, after all. And it is forever going on sale for 20 dollars or less anyways (plus, it is, what, 3 years old at this point?)

    Anyways, kudos on a pretty decent month!! Let’s hope this is in an indicator of how it will be going forward.

  • pretty solid line up, final a line up with games i don’t own any.

    Nice PS+

  • Highpark_united

    Finally a line up that makes sense! Glad I held out on all those just cause 3 sales xD

  • Why the Just Cause 3 isnt in the brazilian accounts? Shame on you sony!

  • Why this precoception with Brazil? We arent one of you best buyers?

  • DuoMaxwell007

    Nothing I give a crap about but at LEAST its a AAA retail game for once.. so I wont complain. Lets see how many concurrent months they can keep this trend up (spoiler alert… itll be back to crap in Sept)

    • Mercenary09

      Um PS+ has had a great lineup for months now. Tales from the Borderlands and Abzu in May, Life is Strange and Killing Floor 2 in June, Until Dawn and Game of Thrones in July and now this great lineup. Stop acting like this is the first great lineup we’ve had in a long time.

  • Lineup is surprisingly solid.

  • besantesteras

    Zeah, tnx SONY !!!
    Keep this up to next month’s!!!
    Awsome game for this 3 month’s (jun, july, august)!!!

  • Extrem3xCarn4ge

    I might actually take advantage of the movies that are .99 cents. Pretty sweet stuff!

  • Sad to see all the comments saying “finally, good games etc”. JC3 is a subpar, big budget game full of technical problems and bugs. You can also find copies at around 10-20$ so it’s hard to see where the “value” is here when compared to the many excellent indies we got earlier. Sight. And AC… Oh well.

    • SidNightwalker

      Yeah I know, Just Cause 3 is amazingly average. But compared to everything but last month, it’s miraculous.

    • SoulSeekerUSA

      TBH, I am sick of indie games.

    • David_Thomaz

      Well, it’s another game i dont pay to play( not counting the ps plus subscription)

  • DTerrazas05

    Playstation you did it again! I have been wanting to play jc3 but i was thinking if i REALLY REALLY wanted it and i sure am happy about this! Thank you playstation! I still keep being surprised by you!

  • Finally getting some great games this month. :)

  • iantiger4113

    I’m so happy to see that PlayStation is giving us some actually GOOD games now! The past few months have been fantastic! Thank you!

  • PatMahGroin

    Like the lineup, not a fan of AC, and already bought just cause 3 for like $70 back when it first came out, but they are an improvement to titles we’ve received in some months (excluding the last 2 months) so nice job Playstation!

  • Great line up, looking forward to playing these. :]

  • Damn it. I have them all already.

  • Never played ne of the just cause games are they any good

  • I am excited to check out Downwell on the Vita ! That was a game that I’ve heard good things about and sounds like a fun challenge.

  • welp this blows…. don’t care for any of these games…. has the AVGN nerd would say (in my own ways) i would rather put my sacks down dingodile’s mouth why shoving my head up N.Gin’s (Bleep) Hole

  • Luthor-Kuro-Inu

    it was time Thanks… god a good lineup

  • pt1029384756

    Hi. This is quite irrelevant, but i have noticed that most of the ps plus asia’s free titles are eventually offered to ps plus eu and us subscribers. Is it something that has been confirmed? Will we get all the games ps plus asia subscribers have gotten for free this year eventually?

  • Well, I just downloading Just Cause 3 from this list, thanks once again PlayStation please keep this lineup every month as good as this one!!

  • And how about brazil Soni?
    You’re going to leave us with a game worth $ 2…
    Strike Vector EX, who cares about that while you get “just cause 3″… but not in my country
    I’m sick of paying a lot for indie games.
    You just lost a customer

  • Cool:D

  • Guys, how to download the game? and when it will launch?please help me…tnx in advance…

    • pt1029384756

      I’m not sure what do you mean, but if you mean how to download the games, it’s quite simple. You open the playstation device you own, open the playstation store window, and go to the ps plus section. You can download the games or add them to library if they are available there, but you have to make sure you don’t change the game’s version, since you might end up paying for it by mistake. If you don’t have access to the ps4 right away, you could visit the ps store website, choose to log in, go to the ps plus section and download the games from there. Hope i helped :)

  • Very Sad for PS3 gamers. Not good games for this time too :(

  • I believe Super Motherload is Cross-Buy between the PS3 and PS4. Or at least I only remember buying it for the PS3, but also had access to the PS4 version as well.

    Incredible game too. It looks average, but if you give it a chance you will find it’s a great game. The soundtrack, by Eric Cheng, is also excellent!

  • SoulSeekerUSA

    Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry isn’t even a real game, just an add on that they made standalone.

  • D4RKMatt3rK1NG

    @sidnightwalker

    Sorry about your ignorance to technology and its costs.
    but to say the price of a ps4 pro isnt worth its performance is hilarious. You cant build a 4k capable gaming pc for the price of a ps4 pro. And for you to say you own a gaming pc that is truely high graphics but not able to play 4k clearly isnt a true high quality resolution output.

    So next time maybe not call others ignorant when the facts are against your own claims

    • pt1029384756

      Ironically enough, you replied to a comment without tapping the reply button X^D. By the way, i’m not trying to nitpick you, i’m just kidding ;^)

    • SidNightwalker

      Yeah sure bud, 4k is the holy grail of image quality, right? There are absolutely no other factors like high levels of antiailasing or anything else that determine how sharp an image is, that’s what you think right? Yeah STFU, you don’t know a damn thing about technology that you haven’t had spoonfed to you, ya peon.

  • AceroRomano

    Latam deserves equality, give us Just Cause 3!

  • volcom-DC-man

    i have both freedom cry and just cause 3. ****, 3 months in a row with bad games / games i already have :/

  • darkknight0128

    Nice lineup, but when will the games be ready for download?

  • Hey, i’m brazilian guy and here there is NOT ONLY Indian and naked woman! Brazil has 8.5 million square kilometers, and it is a country. Europe has 10 million square kilometers and is a continent. Help the Brazilians, we are paying too !!
