PlayStation has unveiled the next batch of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Unsurprisingly, the leaked list of games that appeared over the weekend was again accurate (via Dealabs). The July 2022 PS Plus lineup includes Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, and Arcadegeddon. The trio of new PlayStation Plus free games will be available from July 5 for PS4 and PS5 users. It’s one of the best PS Plus lineups of the year, so PlayStation Plus subscribers have some fun games to look forward to trying out in the near future.
Crash Bandicoot 4: About time is the best known of the group. Originally released in late 2020, Crash Bandicoot 4 brought back the iconic mascot in style. It retains the level-based formula of the early Crash games while adding modern flourishes for a smoother overall experience. Crash 4 is fast-paced platforming fun that requires nimble fingers and a sharp mind. Although it’s a great family game, it’s more challenging than most AAA rigs on the market today. Both the PS4 and PS5 versions will be free, so PlayStation 5 owners can get performance upgrades.
Definitely not suitable for children, The Dark Pictures: The Man from Medan is the first entry in Supermassive Games’ horror anthology series. Similar to the studio’s other hits like The Quarry and Until Dawn, Man of Medan is a story-driven adventure that emphasizes player choice to alter the course of history. Man of Medan follows five friends who go on a journey together. What could go wrong?
Arcadegeddon is a cooperative multiplayer shooter set inside an arcade game. It supports up to four players and offers both PvE and PvP activities. Arcadegeddon is played from a third-person perspective and has some slick visuals that look quite appropriate alongside the premise. It’s flown under the radar since it became available last summer, but we imagine the servers will be pretty active once it’s available to PS Plus members. Both PS4 and PS5 versions of Arcadegeddon can be picked up.
Be sure to grab June’s PlayStation Plus freebies, including God of War, before they’re replaced by the new lineup on July 5. As a reminder, the monthly trio of freebies are still available to all PlayStation Plus subscribers, regardless of tier. registered for.
