July's PlayStation Plus Update to Be Fully Detailed Next Week

Posted by Sammy Barker

Instant Game Collection information on the way

The end of the month always spells intrigue in the PlayStation Nation, as we desperately await information on the latest roster of free PlayStation Plus games. Alas, as is becoming a regular occurrence, Sony may have already outed July’s couple of complimentary PlayStation 4 titles, with both Strider and TowerFall Ascension recently listed on the Asian PlayStation Blog.

Seeing as the next-gen giveaways have thus far been mirrored globally, it seems likely that these releases will be your freebies for the month, but the platform holder has yet to officially acknowledge the leak. It has, however, hinted that all will be revealed soon. “[Details on July’s PlayStation Plus update] should be [announced] sometime next week,” European blog manager Fred Dutton told an eager fan on Twitter.

What games are you hoping to grab for the PlayStation 3 or Vita this time? Would you be happy with the abovementioned PS4 selection, or were you hoping for something else? Detail your hopes and dreams in the comments section below.

@Rapidaz I think you're dreaming at this point. My money is on the fact that a game like Rayman won't be out til at least October and a triple aaa won't hit til November or December. That's to drive holiday sales. And we won't get two in a month cause they won't be able to sustain that yet.

In another note, since those will probably be the ps4 games, I'd like something along the lines of an rpg (tales or ni no kuni) and duck tales for ps3, and something like lbp and muramasa for vita (we haven't gotten any of these for the us)

I will grab Strider, but didnt they say they were going to be releasing AAA soon? I may be wrong there though.
Still, Capcom have some good past releases.

@ztpayne7 Assassin's Creed 3 came to PS+ last August after less than ten months on sale. Wouldn't be too much of a shock if Black Flag became the first AAA-name on PS4's PS+.



ztpayne7 said:

@rastamadeus while I expect Rayman or injustice to be the first ps4 title (unless we wait til December - then it's knack or killzone), I was mainly saying we won't get two at once. That's ludicrous and shouldn't be expected at this point. Ac 4 is possible - especially if they want to promote unity.

I really hope for
Binding of isaac rebirth (vita or ps4, crossbuy)
Guacamelee (ps4)
Terrarria (vita)

Injustice on the Ps4 would be pretty cool. Still gutted I missed it a few weeks back for £12.99

Will be the 1st month since they started the PS4 free games that I won't bother having!, shall pass this month if this is true

Already have Strider and as soon as the Resogun update hits I'll have my local multiplayer game so nothing for me.
Also buy all my AAA titles on disc so not really worried about those either.

@Shellybird27 not really. If the genres arent what you enjoy.
I dont enjoy race sims, so when one is free Im still not going to play it, on the off chance thay this one in one hundred is fun for me.

However, those that say they "don't like indies" I don't get.
Alot of major studios today started as an indie dev. See Minecraft.



Midzark said:

@Shellybird27 I've watch some videos of them and they just look muh! Lol Just brought one month of FF14 so gonna play that till the Destiny Beta comes out 😁

blindndeaf said:

yet another batch of mobile phone games.been playing clash of the clans on my phone now if they adapted that for the playstation platform I would love it I do like those type of games not a platform game player and still waiting to see what the four can really do and hoping Destiny will show me ...



blindndeaf said:

p.s. and they are not free games ..if you didnt pay the fee you wouldnt get them still not vfm since ive had six months of paying ,would not have got any of bthem so far ..



ToOGoodOfAPlaya said:

@blindndeaf I guess you don't play online at all on the PS4 then.
I do want to see some better quality games myself but they dont have to give us anything beyond the service to play online .
That said, Strider is really slick.
