The PlayStation Plus July lineup packs in thrilling firefights, wrestling superstars, intense horror, and martial arts action. Whether your tastes lie with first-person shooters (Call of Duty: Black Ops 4), over the top arcade punch ups (WWE 2K Battlegrounds), third-person survival horror (A Plague Tale: Innocence) or battling your way up global leaderboards (Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown), PlayStation Plus next month has something for you. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, and A Plague Tale: Innocence are available to add to your console library starting Tuesday, July 6 until Monday, August 2. And if you missed it last month, Virtua Fighter is available on PlayStation Plus for a second month, and is available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, August 2.

Let’s take a closer look at each.

 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 | PS4
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 delivers a trio of action-packed multiplayer-modes* for first-person shooter fans. First there’s the series’ iconic multiplayer experience pitting players against each other worldwide. Second, is the fan-favourite Zombies experience, letting you and friends battle the undead. Last but not least is Blackout, an intense large-map mode inspired by battle royale. Blackout brings together characters, locations, weapons and gear from across the series in all-out survival combat – all with a unique Black Ops twist.

 

WWE 2K Battlegrounds | PS4
The world of WWE is your battleground with over-the-top, arcade action as your favorite WWE Superstars and Legends battle in interactive environments around the world. Play through a new story mode while unlocking unique characters and Battlegrounds. Compete using special abilities and power-ups in match types like Steel Cage, Royal Rumble, and more! Compete in Online Tournaments or stake your claim as King of the Battleground against players from around the world!* Plus, battle it out in local multiplayer and dominate your friends.

 

A Plague Tale: Innocence | PS5 version only**
The critically acclaimed adventure releases on PS5 with 4K native resolution***, targeted 60 FPS, highly improved visuals, and fast loading – and makes its debut onto PlayStation Plus. Follow the tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending journey through the darkest hours of history. Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo will come to know and trust each other. As they struggle to survive against overwhelming odds, they will fight to find purpose in this brutal, unforgiving world.

These three new releases are also joined by Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, as Sega’s beat’em up enjoys its second month on PlayStation Plus. If you missed it in June, here’s what you need to know:


Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown | PS4
Sega’s iconic one-on-one battler gets remade for a new generation by Yakuza and Judgment developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio. This console exclusive allows both VF veterans and newcomers to experience the intense martial arts combat, deep strategy, and intricately balanced gameplay of the groundbreaking 3D fighter in stunning HD. New online features* – like custom tournaments supporting up to 16 players and live spectating – join classic modes like Rank Match, Arcade, and VF5’s famously robust Training to deliver the definitive Virtua Fighter experience.

 

Last chance to download PlayStation Plus games for June

I'd quite like to play A Plague Tale, but don't have a PS5 and Black Ops IV is an odd choice - surely everyone who wants to play CoD battle royale can just play Warzone?

Blops IV's traditional multiplayer is good, I was addicted for a few months on release. The influx of new players should mean it's not horrible for other new players as well.

hmm, that WWE game is less than a year old. it must be shit

I think it's already been in PS Now and its definitely been in a Humble Bundle. Bombed worse than Jinder Mahal as champ. 

 

 

Because it's utter, utter shite.

Doesn't seem like very long since they did Blops 3 and I think I stomached the campaign of that for less than an hour. Not sure I'll be bothering here.

 

I'll give Plague Tale a whirl though.

Plague Tale is excellent. Surprisingly AAA for a non-AAA title. Play with french audio for that extra authenticity. I wouldn’t say it was a scary game, unless you have a problem with rats. Maybe a couple of minor jumpy moments I suppose, but it’s not really that sort of game.

Happy with Plague's Tale as well. Always wanted to buy it, but never found the right moment. You know how it goes, other games take priority or not enough credits on account and too lazy to add more.

That CoD game is in my library already and it's not something I'd ever buy - has it been on PS+ already?

Wasn’t it black ops 3 we’ve had in the past?

Could be. I don't actually play them.

What do you actually do in A Plague Tale, is there combat?

A bit of stealthy stuff, but not a lot of combat. You’re only a kid so you’re a bit too vulnerable for hands on combat with a bunch of soldiers. There are some encounters, but you’re mainly trying to avoid being hit and using ranged attacks. I’d summarise the game as a modern narrative action adventure - linear exploration with some puzzles, stealth and action.

A Plague Tale is a bit like a PS2 era stealth game mixed with a walking sim and some puzzles.

 

It's pretty decent but I also think it's been a bit overrated by virtue of it coming from a smaller studio. The stealth is basic and boring, after a promising start the story gets very silly, and it's overlong. It is incredibly atmospheric, good looking and has decent puzzles though. And as silly as the individual story beats get, it mostly works on a gut level. Certainly worth a download.

And some Modern Warfare things.

 

Seems it's CoD WWII, CoD MWII, CoD MW, Bloodstorm and Bonesquad and Bloodstorm II, stupid.
