PlayStation Plus: Free Games for July

Updated July 2, 2019: Enjoy some classic arcade racing in Horizon Chase Turbo.

Update: We are making a swap to the PS Plus games lineup for July. This month, we are adding Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition, which also includes Heavy Rain, to the July games lineup instead of Pro Evolution Soccer 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Here’s more information about Detroit: Become Human, which will be available to PS Plus members along with Horizon Chase Turbo from July 2 to August 5.

Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition

In Detroit: Become Human, discover what it really means to be human in a powerful, emotional journey made of choice and consequences. Set in Detroit City during the year 2038, the city has been revitalized by the invention and introduction of Androids into everyday life. But when Androids start behaving as if they are alive, events begin to spin out of control. Step into the roles of the story’s pivotal three playable characters, each with unique perspectives as they face their new way of life.

Take to the pitch in an acclaimed football simulator and put the pedal to the metal in a nostalgic arcade racer with your next batch of PlayStation Plus Monthly Games for July.

Let’s take a closer look:

Pro Evolution Soccer 2019

From Konami’s long-running sports franchise, Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 features a huge selection of real-world licensed leagues alongside hundreds of familiar players, bringing the thrill of global competition directly to your living room.

Create magic moments on and off the pitch, with each player possessing their own traits that will affect how they react in the moment, while myClub and Master League modes allow you to pursue your own club career. Enjoy local play for up to 4 players, or go online* and test your skills against the world.

Horizon Chase Turbo

Prepare for a blast of pure ‘90s nostalgia with Horizon Chase Turbo, a love-letter to the iconic, just-one-more-go racers of the arcade’s golden age.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Out Run, Top Gear and Rush, developer Aquiris Game Studio captures the essence of the 16-bit era with style, with modern visuals, a soundtrack with insane arpeggios, and classic split-screen couch multiplayer.

Play solo or grab up to three friends. You’ll pilot your car through extraordinary places, watching the sun setting, facing rain, snow, volcanic ashes and even severe sandstorms.

Both Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Detroit Become Human and Horizon Chase Turbo are available to download from PlayStation Store on July 2 until August 5.

In the meantime, you still have a few days left to pick up June’s two PlayStation Plus titles.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a bumper bundle of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-sequel, featuring hours of first-person looting and shooting, while Sonic Mania is a carefully crafted remix of Sega’s iconic platformer hero, retooled with extra modes, characters and stages.

If you haven’t downloaded these yet, fear not: both are available to download for active PS Plus members until July 1.

Let us know your thoughts on June and July’s titles and we’ll see you again next month.

*Internet connection and PS Plus membership required for online multiplayer.

    Horizon Chase Turbo is a pretty nice little racer but this is an overall weak lineup Team. Many of us could care less about sports games. Also can you please start adding more value to PlayStation Plus like a PSVR game or something?

    • WhatTheHec3

      Actually many of us love sports games but PES is the weaker of the two games, the other being FIFA.

    • earth_inheritor

      I appreciate that people like sports game but its a very small market when you compare is to other genres. Especially Soccer/Football its really not all that popular outside of Europe.

    • CrimsonDream24

      Actually, the sports game market is quite massive. It just doesn’t have the public voice to depict that. When you look at statistics you find that it is much larger than you would think.

      Also, soccer is significantly bigger in North America that people recognize. The PS Plus free games we were here also includes Mexico which has a sizeable soccer fanbase, and the U.S. and Canada both habe sizeable fanbases for the sport as well. They may not be as big as some other sports, but they are still very large.

      Additionally, the games given to European PS Plus subscribers are traditionally the same as NA, meaning this game selection may have been an international decision, rather than being based on the NA playerbase.

    • kemikalkaos420

      I agree I thought they were already adding vr games but it just seem to went away!

    • Yeah soccer is only really popular in 5 of the 7 continents of the world Africa, Europe, Asia, Oceania and South America so it makes no sense for an Asian company to give a free soccer game because North American would prefer a free Madden or Basketball game that aren’t considered serious sports outside their own continent

    • I know right I was wondering when they going to start putting psvr games out I bought this thing and you ain’t giving me anything for half of the games at all for it and not that good

    • PES franchise has sold as many games as the Assassins Creed franchise.

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      Man this line up really took the hype out of ps plus for me, it looked as if they knew how to pick games (even though those games are already cheap enough to buy them without ps plus) could give away doom, could give away a dark souls could’ve given away batman

    • True_Rican87

      This suck

    • True_Rican87

      They should give us a VR game a month.

    • mindphyx77822

      At least its not fifa with all its loot boxes

    • FantasyShark34

      Most games have loot boxes not just fifa

    • SnakeEyesBP1980

      May I add that I might Like Horizon Chase Turbo…IT looks just like OutRun in the 80’s. Man even new cars from different things is a kinda an added plus for me. I might be all in on that game. But PES? Sport games? really Sorry I been long gone from sports games that I would like to see the real thing happen then playing it.

    • Problem with adding vr games is that not everyone has vr because they either don’t want it or can’t use it.

    • Mercenary09

      @destrate Not everyone owned a Vita or a PS3 either. That isn’t a good excuse not to include PSVR games. They absolutely should be included at this point.

    • Crazy

    • Completely agree. The free games have been old/bottom of the barrel for several months now. PSN needs to do way better.

    • Guys, stop “actually”ing one-another. Different countries have different markets. In some markets sports games are popular, in others they’re not. Both sides are right and wrong, no need to spam “actually” when it has no meaning.

    • My original comment was well, “passionate”, so I’m putting an edited version of it on here as I’m certain the original will be removed (as it should be, I’m not usually so privy to swearing).

      Every time I tried to add a comment I was somehow blocked so I’m replying to your post and I apologise for that. However, the fact is these games are not aimed at PS Plus subscribers. These games are “here’s some sports stuff, cos that what you’re getting this month”. I’m sorry, but once upon a time, PS Plus was a premium service, that is, you got the usual unreliable PS service with some decent free games. Now, it’s “Damn you, don’t you realise how lucky you are, being able to play onlne with your friends?. Getting free games, (however rubbish they are) is a privalege, so “Screw you”, stupid consumer!

    • It’s pretty sad on how ignorant people about soccer. We have the MLS, our national teams have quite few achievements qualifying for the world cups, winning the gold cups, USA Women’s team winning the world cup 3 times working on the 4th. A lot of national players that play for countries like Mexico, Cuba, Panama, and so on actually play in the MLS. Soccer is huge here just doesn’t make as much noise as the NFL or NHL. It’s a damn shame on how closed minded folks can be. Sounds like an American Culture class needs to be implemented in the American Highschool and Middle School system.

    • I agree it’s a weak line up I’ve been waiting for a good game that looks like I could play for hours and not get bored

    • GaMeR_bOi_83

      They switched PES2019 for Detroit Become Human. Is that better for you?

    • Look, I preferred PES 2019, because I do not prefer detroid become humam, it’s very annoying, it was better to put it in the next month, and to put the Horizon Chase Turbo a CELLULAR game, it was better to take it out and leave the PES 2019 and Detroit Become Humam, I hope you guys fix it

    • @WhatTheHec3 you clearly have never played football in your life…

    • @earth_inheritor actually you’re wrong, it’s popular outside Europe and all over the world, just not in the US..

    • thiago-thiery

      Gostaria de saber qual foi o motivo da troca ,gostei tanto de vê pes2019 E o horizon chase turbo, no Plus , só queria saber o pq da troca ,era simples só era adicionar o Detroit became human, e deixava o o pes2019. Fiquei um triste em saber que teve essa troca dos jogos.

    • I would of felt better if they would of left the selection alone because I recently bought Detroit while it was on sale and now to see it pop up for our July PS plus just really slaps me in the face. :(

    • BadFlounder

      @xwinger That is a truly clueless take. Soccer is quite popular in the United States now and it is by FAR the most popular sport in the world. I’m an American and I was very much looking forward to PES (I already own FIFA). The one month Sony finally had a game on Plus I was interested in….and they pull this garbage.

    • CreepingDeath187

      Dark souls has already been a freebie! No one wants PS3 Batman games or the horrible PS4 one not telltale Batman games! Every month the games suck! And would even more if we get years and years old games that could be picked up used for $9 each

    • patriotsfan12qb

      This is the last time I will give Sony money. They better make all 3 free or I’m selling my PS4.

    • LOL talk about bad luck, every time I purchase a game that is $20.00 dollars in the ps store the following month PS Plus has it for free. Go figure!!! When I saw that that Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 was going to be free for July I was hype. Now I feel dumped on. False advertising is a great way to push people away from using your service. By the way thanks for Detroit Being Human, I will keep it in my library but I serious doubt I will play it.

    • juanestebanda

      It is so annoying what just happened with PES, what a slap in the face. do you people from sony only care about the the US market, don’t the rest of us matter?? What a shame really.

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      Ya for a whole 5 minutes horizon is fun, Detroit beyond unbearable wasn’t very good either

    • Any free game is fine, why complain.

  • Yaaaawwwwnnnn

    • oppositesleeper

      Yeah. I dont even think ill add these to my list of ps+ games. Between the dropping of ps3 and psvita vontent and the lackluster games lately i may drop my ps+ all together if this keeps up.

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      I will definately drop PS plus too, I don’t like playstation online play, i’ll be honest this past couple year i’ve been considering pulling the plug on my PS plus subscription, it was only for the free games every month and then they do this crap.

    • mindphyx77822

      I agree, how about AC origins or ezio collection, or WD2, or GR Wildlands or wolf old blood or new collossus, rise of TR. This is junk

    • CreepingDeath187

      El jeffe you mustn’t play many games that you’re dropping ps+ most of my games require online connection(plus).

    • WaterbottleRich_

      It is pretty boring line up I agree….

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      Online games? you mean microtransaction hell. what games actually good online? and no I play mainly vintage games because these games aren’t very good.

  • boychik0830

    finally a month where i have never played either game before. unfortunately neither game appeals to me as i don’t like sports games and i don’t like racing games except for kart racers. i will still download them and play them even though they are not the type of games that i like to play. even though borderlands is really hard and i had sonic on swithc it is still a better month then what we are getting in july.

  • Definitely be trying out horizon chase turbo. Pass on the soccer game

  • Tomskey1978

    Disappointed

  • Sony hates us

    • Don’t you guys have cellphones? Haha :-\ Yeah I’m a bit sad myself. I’m not a huge sports fan, but I would prefer basketball over any sport if I was given it for free.

    • Preliator06

      I agree totally.

  • Whiners, start your engines!

    • so you feel people should be okay getting a mobile port that’s free on iOS?

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      Lol they’re paying for a service that they don’t want, your supposed to complain when that happens so they know to pick better games, many people don’t play games online they just have ps plus for the free games

    • CreepingDeath187

      Let jefe everyone I know plays online and only 1 or 2 don’t.. where are you getting your “facts” from?

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      no one in my family plays games online.

  • Grossssssss

  • This feels like this should have been EU only Plus for July.

    • What sports do you think people enjoy outside North America???

      South America soccer is king
      Africa soccer is king
      Asia soccer is king
      Europe soccer is king
      Oceania soccer is up there too
      And it happens to also have a sizeable market share in north America and Canada

      The gaming world would be trully upset if it was an American football, Rounders or Basketball game instead as outside North America they are less popular than badmington. Even Cricket or Rugby games would be more acceptable.

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      its not the SPORTs they enjoy outside america its the fact its sports games

  • Yuck! At least we got that soccer game, because soccer is soo popular. We’re Europe or South America, right?

    • WhatTheHec3

      FIFA is a huge soccer game, unfortunately for us, they gave us PES.

    • CreepingDeath187

      Just because you and I don’t like the choice they originally made doesn’t mean millions of others aren’t happy! Be a baby like others on here cancel your plus and go play mobile

  • honestly, how many Car games you going to through at us, ENOUGH.

  • I regret recently resubscribing to Plus.
    PS2 dominated, then Xbox 360, then PS4…Looks like Sony’s working hard to make sure the next Xbox dominates the next generation, with their complete lack of effort at this point.

    • AngryChainsaw_

      This would be happen very soon… SONY is big company and PlayStation is one small percent of SONY company. They don’t give a ****… Even, they are not appear at E3 first time until E3 exist… This is very predictable and I’m so sorry, but there’s good point, Microsoft have a thousand gadget for next gen Xbox, everything passes, wireless headset, wired headset, keyboard, mouse, camera, and all is connect to Windows… I still thinking that was a terrible joke…

    • Complete lack of effort? LOL

    • FantasyShark34

      You want an xbox, go buy one

    • BUD_TOKER_13

      im not sure ware your getting your info about 360 dominating their whole lead was a lie based on the fact thy had a whole year head start on Sony and even with that lead Sony caught up and even out sold the 360 by gens end even with having a year less on the market

      and that’s not even counting the people who bought more then one console do to rev 1 360 having a 90% fail rate

      the only PlayStation’s the 360 out sold were Sony’s two hand held’s

      also if you look it up Sony has 5 out of the top 10 selling consoles

      PS2 in number one
      PS in number fore
      PS4 in number six
      PS3 in number seven
      and fimaly PSP in number Ten

      the 360 ranks at number eight

      and last i checked eight is worse then seven in rankings

      their is a reason both MS and Nintendo are now competing with Google instead of Sony MS taking on Stadia with Xcloud and Nintendo With Android the only one left in the game console industry is Sony

      that’s why it hurts so bad when thy slap us in the face with sports games

    • CreepingDeath187

      Bye go play Xbox princess

  • Swing and a miss.

  • Damn what a rubbish line-up. I don’t play sports games or racing games. Guess you can’t please everyone. Please give us 4 games each month at least? 1 AAA, 1 AA and 2 indies. Is that too much to ask? Sony, you’re looking really crap compared to XBox with 4 games each month & GP.

    • For your 5 dollars a month subscription? Yes. You are asking too much.

    • For the 5 dollars a month that Sony is essentially extorting out of you with the pay wall they placed in front of multiplayer, forcing you to pay to use the online access that you are already paying someone else for?

      No, you are not asking too much. You as the consumer have every right to complain when you are not satisfied.

      Complaining here, while perfectly okay however, won’t cause them to change anything. Other than moderators scanning to ensure comments policies, Sony isn’t reading our posts. This is a great place to chat and/or let off steam, but if you want Sony to see that you are dissatisfied with a service, the best method is to stop paying for it.

    • Drop-A-Body

      I like this idea. Sony has been crap for years though. The 3 was far superior in terms of being more user oriented, the four is nothing but an advertisement hell-hole. Look at how they changed the media layout when you try to access YT or Netflix. The adverts load before the icons for the applications they’re advertising FOR. So glad I bought a Switch at this point…

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo

      That’s not even close to the usual GWG lineup. Maybe a AAA and then indies.

    • CreepingDeath187

      4 games? 2 360 games which are trash and GP isn’t free with live! Go play Xbox then. Wanna buy mine? It collects dust because it sucks!

  • Not even FIFA..ugh….Sony with no Vaseline again.

    • AngryChainsaw_

      Yeah, with no Vaseline. Good sintagma and comparation between free games on PlayStation next month and Xbox Free Games, – read: Subnautica!

    • mindphyx77822

      Ps PES kicks fifa’s ass, obviously you’ve never played pes.

  • Last month was pretty good, this month was… not.

    • CreepingDeath187

      Last month? Hahaha on old remastered PS3 game set and an old sega game.. TRASH!

  • AngryChainsaw_

    Disappointment month’s after June… Two very sadly games, one from Konami, the other – never heard…
    Seriously guy’s I’m definitely thinking about buying Xbox Scarlet, because we know everything about that console, their game pass is awesome and their free game in next month is SUBNAUTICA!!!
    Just read a couple reviews about this game and everything would be crystal like a day…
    I’m very sad… One of the worth month’s ever for free PS PLUS games. Give us one but good fame. What about Nioh, FF XV, Watch Dogs, Dark Souls 3,Nier Automata, The Order 1886, Uncharted collection?!

    • K2TC2TFnSMIT-TAY

      Yeah … I’d rather have PES than Subwhateverica. So, just like you have your play style and want Sub, I have my play style and am happy with PES.

      Also: Watch Dogs has been on PS+. Bloodborne, a DS like game, was on PS+. The Order 1886…. was on PS+. I’m sure one of the Uncharted games has been on PS+ at some point in time.

    • @K2TC2TFnSMIT-TAY

      Actually, this has nothing to do with your playstyle, unless you like to be fooled.

      PES always gets added as a free to play game even if it’s a smaller version, still having a football game that is already free and the new one will be released in a couple of months is ridiculous and a lame joke to us… so yeah I’d prefer “Subwhateverica” over PES anytime!!!

      Also, sorry but you have no idea what you’re talking about, Watch Dogs and The Order 1886 were never on PS Plus and Uncharted was… but on PS3!!!

      Go search and get your facts straight before spreading them here!

      Back to topic, I guess I made my opinion clear about the horrible adding of PES, but excited to try HTC since it has split-screen!

    • @mjacobs92
      You need to get your facts straight. I have The Order, Bloodborne and Watch Dogs th

    • Thanks to Ps PLUS, Rocket League, and a whole lot of awesome games. This is just a bad month. Keep your mouth shut.

    • @SigmaSebas

      Almost every month, players and gaming websites keep pretending The Order 1886 to be on the list, I’ve checked the complete list for all the ps plus games that have been added to PS3 and PS4 and didnt find the order or watch dogs.

      So I’m not sure how you got them unless it was a special promotion deal for some time like CoD:BO 3.
      So please prove me wrong.

      Another note: please at least be respectful “ps plus fanboy” it’s not like I’m offending you I just said my opinion about this months games as I’m free to do so. Guess what you’re also free to ignore my post, no need to tell other people to shut their mouths because you don’t like them disliking something. (I also said Im gonna try HCT, cuz it has local play) so it’s not completely bad for me as others didn’t like both titles.

      Now go enjoy your pes no one will judge you lol

    • @ mjacobs92 – You’re right man…I have an insane memory and both The Order and Watch Dogs were never free on Plus.These are usually people who got Plus in different regions like europe and asia then get different games there and don’t realize we’re talking about games that were available in the US lineup.

    • CreepingDeath187

      Bye go play Xbox no one cares! Wanna buy mine?? Xbox is trash! All games you mentioned are old!

    • CreepingDeath187

      @mjacobs92 nice platinum scrub! Level 8 in community stfu you’re a noob!

  • PES is that game of soccer that they play for a year and the one that comes is no longer useful ?, PES 2019 came out on August 30, 2018, then … until August 30, 2019 …. 2 months?

    • Haha glad someone realizes the scam of sports game.It’s not only pes you know lol.

  • So a AAA sports title and an indie racer. Pathetic offerings this month. Also the discontinuation of trophy passes, sales have gone from 70 – 80% off to 40 – 50% off, no more 20% off coupons unless you buy a new console, no more free $10 PSN codes in the mailers. Couple that with your insanely stupid policies like censoring games and cross play with other gaming companies and Sony has really lost its way and the value proposition is all but eroded. It’s like PS3 arrogant Sony is back, and we see how that worked out for you. Xbox is killing it in the value proposition and they are about to come out swinging with exclusives. Next gen is going to be interesting.

    • Yeah man Xbox Live Gold gives away better games. Check your Sony Rewards passes, trophy passes are back. You have to earn a certain amount of each type instead of getting points for each individual trophy.

    • Hey Tristan1138, actually Sony sent an email yesterday saying trophy passes are ending on 11/07/19, so get them now before they are gone.

    • What are you talking about? I went through all my e-mails from Sony Rewards and not a single one mentions changes to trophy passes. The only thing it mentions is not being able to access rewards through the website while they are changing the website but that you will still earn rewards for linked accounts. Nothing about trophies.

      Not to mention your bull about Xbox is just flat out wrong seeing as how Xbox doesn’t have ANY exclusives since they are all on PC and nearly everything they announced from the studios they purchased is also coming out on PS4. Not to mention your complaint about discounts not being as much is not a Sony problem it’s a industry-wide problem. All you have to do is look at this year’s Steam summer sale to see that the prices for games are not anywhere as good as they used to be and are always the same as they are on the Playstation store.

      Not to mention if you think Games with Gold (The Golf Club 2019 and Marooners in May and NHL 19 and Rivals of Aether in June oh my)has been better than Plus over the past year then you are just here having a bad faith argument. Don’t even get me started on Game Pass being a better value than PS Now.

    • TheGuyOnMyPS

      RiPPn: While I share your complaints about PlayStation, I can’t agree with you about Xbox killing it. I let my XBL Gold subscription die this month and now don’t plan to renew my PS+ after July.

      Underdog80: I received an email on the 25th with the subject “Important: Changes affecting Trophy Passes”

    • Yeah, I got the email about the trophy passes going away in November, too.It sucks, but such is life.

    • PS3 arrogant Sony?…lol Sony was great back on the PS3 era because they actually had competition.Now with xbox under PS4’s boots Sony has become stupidly greedy and they care about their customers as much as they care for ants.

    • CreepingDeath187

      You guys complaining about trophy rewards?? How much you gotten? I checked your level 7 profile, lol! I’ve cashed out over $100 in rewards this year!

  • Another Backlog month.

  • UnleashTheCASEY

    This is disappointing. Looks like a hard pass for me on both games.

  • I was hopeful for this month til I saw the games .. the racing game looks fun but overall it’s a pretty weak lineup .. we went from sometimes up to 4 games to two .. their not even games people want .. where’s the triple A title.. at least one then a indie or something else.. let’s b honest most gamers don’t play sport games .. no one is asking for a soccer game .. and I mean no one

    • Really? No one is asking for a soccer game? I am pretty sure that is not true :)

  • I guess it’s an opportunity to try a soccer game.

  • If the rumors are true and the US gets another price increase. This is not going to intice people to reup their sub. But at least we will get EA access at the end of the month.

  • If only there was a PS4 Mobile device.

    I have been looking at Horizon Chase Turbo for a while. It looks like a perfect game for a PlayStation Handheld. Would be awesome to hop in on lunch break, and work towards grabbing some trophies.

    Please make sure we have a PlayStation Phone built on Ryzen/RDNA, with PS4 B/C, and a shared OS + Game Library with PS5 at some point next gen. PlayStation has so much room to grow, by letting us play beyond the Home. I agree that PS Now and Remote Play will be a great option as 5G rolls out, but having local hardware as a option is key to engaging the high value customers.

  • The_SaltyJohnson

    Weak, give the Europeans the soccer games. Most of us don’t care about sports. There’s so many better games out there. One of the worst lineup I’ve ever seen. I actually want to cancel my ps plus. Consistently being disappointed. Last month wasn’t bad, but come on, please fire whoever is in charge of making these line ups. I could make a better line up with a blindfold and a dart board.

    • Go ahead. Cancel it and go back to playing all your call of duty games.

    • What sports do you think people enjoy outside North America???

      South America soccer is king
      Africa soccer is king
      Asia soccer is king
      Europe soccer is king
      Oceania soccer is up there too

      The gaming world would be trully upset if it was an American football, Rounders or Basketball. Even Cricket or Rugby games would be more acceptable.

    • @skedar70 or even fortnite, my whole friends list plays fortnite

  • PES 2019 is a free to play game, go to the psn store in the free to play section and see.
    What next will we get tera, or smite as a ps+ game?
    WTF?

    • Lol that’s the lite version. Check it first yourself. There’s a difference.

    • In a way he is right. I just checked. This is pathetic.

    • TheGuyOnMyPS

      Ugh, don’t remind me of Smite. I remember when MS wasted one of its 4 GwG slots on DLC for that F2P. And made a big deal of its supposed ~$100 value.

  • claygriffith01

    This will be the first month ever that I don’t even add the games to my library. Horizon chase is a free Mobile game and PES just isn’t interesting or good. If I cared about Soccer I’d play Fifa.

  • Nitefire7786

    Everyone who keeps saying “most of us don’t care about sports” is wrong. Those games sell millions of copies each year, which means that people do care about them. While I personally don’t play them too much, I’m willing to give it a try. And the raving game looks good. The games they offer are not going to please everyone, everyone is different but Don’t Gives variety so there are games that people will enjoy some months while others don’t. I think it’s a good system and it’s given me a chance to play some games I never would have looked at before and I’ve really enjoyed them. Don’t knock it until you try it

  • One more thing.

    It is very curious that for about 6 months leading up to the end of FY2018, Kenichiro Yoshida was talking about increasing the value of PS+, and offering a wider array of features/content, that leveraged the strength of all of Sony’s divisions.

    Since then, we have seen the number of games decrease from 6 to 2, we no longer get stuff like DLC packages for F2P games, or a PSVR title, and the talk of improving PS+ has gone cold.

    I know I won’t get a reply, but still I have to ask, what is going on with PS+?

    I was excited to pay for PS+ at the start of the generation, to help fund OS and PSN improvements, with the added bonus of some free stuff along the way. We had very nice updates to the PS4 and PSN from 2014 – 2017, but we have had almost nothing added to the PS4 OS or PSN since 2017.

    I really hope that there is something really special in store for the PSN and the PS5 OS to justify the poor value of PS+ over the last 2 1/2 years.

    PlayStation is Great, but Sony, You can do better than this.

    i won’t renewew PS sub.

  • LastofFireflies

    Well at least its PES, not FIFA. Would hate to see FIFA with all loot boxes and pay to win microtransactions. But line up is weeeeeeaak

  • After last month being a great one, this month is absolute TRASH!

    Ps plus holds no value once more….

  • BoRn_2_SnIpE_13

    Dude the free games have been sucking for months. Im close to unsubscribing to plus until a good game is free.

  • InevitableChevy

    Been on PS Plus for years and not complained once but I am extremely disappointed in this month… I hope something is in the works to turn things around. The value of the service is just not there for me anymore as a loyal longtime customer. Sony NA getting so out of touch with the consumer. What happened? :/

  • Wow! I’m really excited to not play either of these games! These won’t even take up space in my library saving me valuable time and energy.

  • Ugh, I wonder how much money Sony tossed at Konami for PES. Won’t play or even claim this game. Might try the racer, but probably not. Thanks for more buyer’s remorse, Sony.

  • heinrichbartie

    What a crappy selection of games sony…..come on, you have been getting worse each month for the past few months.
    You’re going to lose loyal subscribers like this

  • Terrible “free games” for PS Plus for July.

  • VStabHappy666V

    Sony listen to your fans not a soul here likes the trash gimmick you’re throwing at us, both free to play games for your thank you? More like a kick in the head. I knew there was a reason Xbox was superior smh. Screw “saving money” you’re about to lose some loyal gamers over your choices. Seriously be the better company that actually listens to its loyal fan base before you lose it.

  • What disappointment. I’ll be suspending my membership until something good comes along

  • Interested to try PES as I’m more familiar with FIFA. I played a demo of HCT and it is exactly as advertised. Sony is trying to offer different genres for PS Plus and I appreciate the effort.

  • melhor1975umafla

    Eu tenho uma duvida… Tem como piorar?

  • Wow, this will be the first time ever that I won’t download any of the free games. Sad. Hopefully next month is better.

  • “Let us know your thoughts on June and July’s titles and we’ll see you again next month.”
    It’s gonna be a no bueno from me for this month. Last month’s was great. I think anyone who would care for the sports games, especially with their yearly release, would have bought them already. I’ll probably download them and then just hide them from my purchase. Not really that interesting on either one.

  • Bring back Vita games. It’s the minimum support you could give it.

  • I noticed something. The author of this article is from SIEE (Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe). Also PlayStation NA hasn’t uploaded there video yet of July PS Plus. Could NA be getting a different set of games?

    • No this is your games for the US. It wouldn’t be posted here otherwise. They likely just had him do the write up this month as sometimes the EU blog writers post here too. Also them not having a video up isn’t out of the ordinary. It’s been the middle of the month before when they posted the video.

    • This sucks. I was excited to finally try PES. They should’ve gave us all three, instead of taking away PES.

  • TONS of people play sports games, but they tend to be completely absent from PS Plus. So throwing people who are into those games a bone is totally fine with me.

  • Wow… so lame. Horizon is fun this is such a poo lineup. Kind of bummed out that I renewed my subscription this month.. Sigh! Let’s hope August is better or we get some killer sales in July because this stinks!!

  • One game is free on my phone and the other is from a publisher whose treatment of their developers included harassing them, forcing them to work as janitors and driving them out of the company instead of just giving them a severance package and whom I will never, *ever* support again. Sony, you really dropped the ball this month and the fact you probably gave money to Konami for this deal is honestly appalling to me.

      This is how business works. If there are staff not working and you need janitorial services, you put them to work. If you don’t like it, then move to Norway!
