There are three free games this month as PS Plus July 2020 celebrates ten years of the online service.
Ten years ago PS Plus was launched as a part of Sony’s online gaming ambitions.
While the service isn’t free and is required to play some games, Sony has kept gamers incentivized to subscribe by offering free games.
While they aim to please everyone, they cannot always do this.
The vast majority of games offered by PS Plus are of top quality but sometimes they do drop the ball.
I think it might be best if we don’t go on too much about May’s disastrous Farming Simulator debacle.
PS Plus was offered for all current devices such as Vita, PS3 and PS4, but the service was canceled for the last generation devices last year.
Since then, however, the quality of the PS4 titles offered seemed to improve and there have been some excellent free games over the past year.
Uncharted 4, Call of Duty: WWII and The Last of Us Remastered are to name but a few.
This month’s free games are also quite impressive and there appears to be something for almost everyone.
Sports fans can enjoy the excellent NBA 2K20 while action and adventure gamers can play Lara Croft in Rise of the Tomb Raider.
There’s also Erica, one of the best games in the niche live-action interactive genre.
NBA 2K20 is the current title in the popular basketball series just ahead of the upcoming season with NBA 2K21.
The sports simulator features all official United States basketball teams and their star players.
Also included in this version are all teams in the women’s NBA roster as well as their real-life sports stars.
As well as an action-packed arcade mode, the game features a career mode with a storyline voiced by Hollywood superstar Idris Elba.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is the sequel to Square Enix’s amazing 2014 Tomb Raider reboot.
Set one year after Tomb Raider, Lara is still reeling from her ordeal and throws herself into more of her father’s work to cope with the stress.
Lara sets out for Syria to uncover the legend of Kitezh.
Pursued by a group known as the Trinity, Lara utilizes her skills and gains new ones as she tries to uncover the mystery and evade certain death at the hands of the order.
Erica is a live-action interactive video game from Sony Interactive.
As a young woman, Erica suffers nightmares surrounding her father’s grisly murder when she was a child.
As she begins to learn the truth, you must guide Erica through her adventure using the DualShock 4 touchpad.
Choices have consequences and every decision you make will affect the outcome and progression of the story.
All of these excellent games will be available for PS Plus subscribers from July 7, 2020.
