The big PlayStation Plus update for July 2017 is in – and it’s an outstanding month. The headliner this time is Until Dawn, one of the best exclusives released on the PlayStation 4 to date, and a must-play if you haven’t tried it already. It’s joined by the full season of Telltale’s Game of Thrones as well as new PlayLink party title That’s You – the latter of which will be free until 24th October. You'll also get access to the Orcs Must Die Unchained beta, along with $20 worth of free in-game content.
The PlayStation 3 selection is decent, too: you’re getting out-there roguelike Tokyo Jungle and flashy fighter Darkstalkers Resurrection. And then over on the Vita, you’ll score Don’t Die, Mr Robot! – which is cross-buy with PS4 – and the awkwardly named Element4l.
Another great month, and last time was no slouch either. Let us know if you’re happy below.
(Serial) killer month!
Yep! I'll take that! Been meaning to play Game of Thrones for a while, and for the price of naff all I'm more than happy to give Until Dawn a go. Hell, even Tokyo Jungle was something I'd play on the ps3.
Let's see people pick holes in this one.
F*ck me I already have Tokyo Jungle and Until Dawn
But oh well, I was actually thinking of buying the Game of Thrones game since I watched all seasons in the last couple of months!
The other ps3 game looks bad af and the Vita games are not that interesting.
But solid month for people that don't own Until Dawn
Until Dawn is awesome and GOT is average at best but decent enough for a ps plus title. Too bad I own both already but it's something for the rest I suppose. Hopefully future months are this good.
@adf86 Too many adventure games!
Dammit - I have DS Resurrection as well as Until Dawn. Well, at least I get Game of Thrones.
@adf86 "It's not even October, why give horror games? Telltale games aren't even real games! Tokyo Jungle has horrible visuals!" Want me to go on?
@adf86 I'm waiting for someone to comment with the following:
Until Dawn- I'm a big sissy and hate horrors
Game of Thrones- I just can't stand the gore
That's you- I'm not photogenic
Dang it! I'm one of those idiots whose parents don't allow to play M games. These last two months have really p*ssed me off. 😤
Do your parents let you swear on the Internet, too? - get2sammyb
Excellent month considering I don't own any of these games! The £40 yearly pass is definitely worth it with a selection like this.
@Hero_of_Hyrule how old are you?
I dont mind giving until dawn another whirl! Already played GoT, hope this exposes more people to tokyo jungle, what a neat quirky game!
@JoeBlogs They Got Grow Home, or grow up, or whatever... And a Wii U game. Plus Kane and Lynch 2 (which I liked).
Yeah Sony win this month.
Awesome month too bad I have both GoT and Until Dawn.
I just bought GoT in the sale a few weeks ago haha.
This is the first time it has happened to me but I have to say for GoT fans it's great and has me ready for the new season.
I wouldnt play GoT though if you are watching it and not past Season 3.
Until Dawn is great game too but I own it already haha
I've almost bought Game of Thrones so many times!
Sounds pretty solid, heard good things about Until Dawn.
Absolutely loved GoT, anyone who hasn't played it and loves the series should get right on it.
Looking forward to playing Until Dawn, surprised they didn't leave it til october though.
Bloomin eck! I bought Until Dawn and traded after completion, so I will be re-downloading that, not a fan of telltale games, but a great month
@JoeBlogs This month I have to give it to PS4. The XB360 games are probably stronger than the PS3 offerings - at least in my opinion but the PS4 games are better than the XB1 games - even though I couldn't care less about GoT (or any TellTale so called 'game' but more an animated comic) and Until Dawn isn't that 'great' - unless they have actually patched it to be more stable now... Its quite a divisive game. I would have preferred Killzone and Child of Light (even though I own both).
At least its a step up and gives me hope for the future.
@Simon_Fitzgerald it happened 😂😂😂
Got Game of Thrones but other than that I am very happy with this month also never played Until Dawn seen a Let's watch on Achievement hunter but now I can play it
Chill games for July. Never could get into Until Dawn after the first hour, definitely tired of the Telltale formula at this point. Still, it's free i guess.
That's prob the best ps plus iv seen tbh
Hopefully GoT has been optimised on ps4. It was like watching a slide show at times on ps3. This is an incredible month though ; I already have until dawn, but more people should play what is an excellent game. Those that dismissed it as just a qte game really need to give it a go. Actually scared me in parts too which is great work.
Until Dawn is great. Game of Thrones is whatever. Still a good month. Well, not for me because I've got the games already. But you know, for people who aren't me.
own both but I'll look forward to playing UD again
Darkstalkers resurrection! I almost bought it so many times ...yeah! I'll play the heck out of it, I would love Capcom to give us a new chapter suing the SFV graphic engine.
Awesome month, i already own Until Dawn but haven't played it yet, having it digitally will be nice and convenient, and also great for people who haven't gotten around to buying it yet.
I already own Until Dawn and Game of Thrones, but still an excellent month for those that don't already own them. I'm sure some people will still find reason to complain though as that's par for the course with PS+.
@get2sammyb I said this last month, but will say it again, absolutely cracking idea to bring back the reviews from the archives for those games selected for plus. Very user friendly!
This is fantastic! I wanted to play Until Dawn again. Can you play a new game plus in this?
@Rob_230 Haha, thank you! Yeah, we thought it was helpful.
Yet another great month, but I own everything I'm interested in. Problem is, I never got around playing them. So I've been wasting money.
Having said that, Until Dawn is a fantastic game so I don't mind all that much. I'd buy any dlc (I'll definitely buy the VR game when I can afford psvr) in a heartbeat.
Despite what everyone said, Game of Thrones Season 1 is my favourite Telltales games to date.
Loved until dawn. It's a great game and maybe I'll get the plat this time (I redboxed it several times) haha.
Already own Until Dawn and Game of Thrones physically.
I guess this means I can trade in my copy of Game of Thrones. I usually buy TT games digitally, but as a big GoT fan I liked the idea of having the games on the shelf just like my books, but it doesn't look like TT are going to be finishing the series anytime soon...
Should get me a fiver back.
PS+ paying for itself again.
Nice selection this month. I'll have to really try to set aside some time and finish Tales from The Borderlands and Life is Strange from previous months. I really want to give Until Dawn a go, but I don't want my backlog to grow again.
already played until dawn but good point for getting platinum trophy
and here we go... GOT! i can play it after all.
next step: kill zone or metro
Bad month for me,I don't like Horror,I don't like Game Of Thrones, I have Tokyo Jungle, Darkstalkers seems okay but I'd rather play Blazblue or SFV, the rest looks like junk. Oh well, between Steam and PSN summer sales I have enough new stuff to keep me busy.
Still a bad selection for me. I wont be downloading any of these 'freebies'. However, credit where it's due, at least they're better than those pointless, indie mobile game offerings.
Wow that's superb. Until Dawn remains one of my fav games this gen so far!
Really hope there's gonna be a sequel... (PSVR game doesn't count!)
Telltale GoT is supposed to be pretty bad, but at least there's a lot of better stuff available.
Dont care about any of these. I would dl Until Dawn if I had Plus but I have seen it for $5 and skipped it. Not a fan of interactive movies, horror or not. A friend recommended Tokyo Jungle though.
No idea how spoilery GoT would be if I were to play it ahead of watching the show (and I procrastinate on that as well since the gargantuan binge queue of animated shows always takes priority unless the live action show's title starts with "Gala" and ends with "vant"), but I have been curious about Until Dawn indeed. Seems like it and Life Is Strange are similar in gameplay?
The real treats for me from the look of it lie elsewhere, though. PS3 teases me with yet another animesque fighter that's not on PS4 or Vita, and Tokyo Jungle looks very interesting. But at least Vita brings yet another enticing discovery - seriously, just look up some Element4l trailers like I just did. A challenging and charming platformer with titularly elemental mechanics and some vibes of LocoRoco and Type:Rider in the mix? Definitely looking forward to it now, maybe even most of the bunch.
@AFCC lol they're real just different type where you make choices instead of controlling the character
Ha, I came this close to buying Until Dawn. This is chuffing awesome. Even though I am a big sissy.
@Rudy_Manchego play Until Dawn home alone in the dark with headphones and a few changes of drawers, it'll be a cracking good time.
Great month, indeed! I really wanted to play Until Dawn. PS+ is all about Telltale-like games lately (and Telltale games too, actually). =)
Good stuff, not played any of these.
Two games I have yet to try on the PS4--three if we count the one Vita crossbuy--means I'm happy with this!
@smythelove I was just joking xD I used " "
@Hero_of_Hyrule weird! Normally at that age parents just don't care anymore!
I'm glad that mine let me play gta and stuff at like 10 LoL
Good selections this month, although nothing for me, because I already own Until Dawn and don't have a PS3.
Looks like I'll be letting my subscription die out again for a while.
I platinumed Until Dawn twice on my two accounts because I enjoyed it so much. I'll be downloading it to play again, though. I've never played TT's GoT so that's another one I'll play even though I grew tired of the series.
@Feena If it's online modes are still up would you like to share PSN ID's and play the game online sometime?
another month got them all
Need more HD space.:-/ Have to buy the Pro now...
BTW great games!
@gamer_since_83 Buy an external hard drive
the first good month in...months!
@nhSnork - GoT is spoilery enough up until about season 4 of the TV show. whilst the game isn't based on the TV, it does refer to events that have happened.
i have both of these games. until dawn is pretty good, and at least the consequences of your choices are more obvious and lead to different conclusion than some of the telltale games. GoT isn't that great, though imo, it seems like telltale have been phoning it in of late. batman was so-so, and walking dead season 3 isn't a patch on the previous two seasons.
Can i play until dawn without PlayStation move? Are the controls alright in the controller?
Nice just subscribed for another months PS Plus today!! I can't really be arsed with Telltale games but really enjoy GOT and have played two episodes and actually quite enjoyed them so nearly bought it a few times including in a recent sale but glad I didn't and Until Dawn I have no idea what it is assuming it's a scary game? I'll have to read the review but heard it's really good so well worth a try. Also got Killing floor to give a go which I really like the look off especially as it's free! Only problem is picked up Wolfenstein The new order for £3.50 last month and I've really liked the look of that just been struggling to get off my go to games so a bigger back log for me it looks like now. 😁
Damn. Won't be able to cry this month either; that's 2 in a row. Never played Until Dawn so will give that a go for sure. How does Game of Thrones work? Is it like a game broken up into episodes?
You know to watch the language -Tasuki-
Until Dawn and Game of Thrones?! July is going to be a good month!
Great month it's just a shame that I already own Until Dawn. For everyone else you are getting a great game which is still one of my favourites on PS4
I lent my copy of until dawn to a friends over a year ago and still haven't gotten it back so getting it digitally is perfect. Also I've almost been tempted to buy GoT a few times so getting it with ps plus is perfect
Until Dawn is still my biggest surprise this gen. I thought it was going to end up being "Ok" at best and I ended up loving it.
Trust me, I wholeheartedly agree with you, except I'm not a horror guy. I do have Battlefield 1 though.
@Hero_of_Hyrule BF1 is gory enough
Nothing really good on PS4 or Xbox One this month.
It's an alright line-up if you're into the point-and-click genre. Will definitely mess around with Until Dawn, though I remember the decisions being as useless as in telltale games.
Besides that the mid-year sale in NA is what has me jazzed. So many good psvita and ps3 games are going for cheap.
@adf86 OH someone will find something, they always do
on topic, pretty good selection this month and i was meaning to buy Until Dawn so now i don't have too
Wow this is a good month. Still haven't played Until Dawn so definitely going to get that, and have been so close to buying Tokyo Jungle and Darkstalkers for ages now so very happy to see them as well. I've still yet to play a Telltale episodic series as well, much to my shame, so this seems a good place to start with that too. Great month, very happy!
Until dawn will be amazing , almost bought it a few months ago so getting in on ps+ Is amazing........I rekon game of thrones will be great too
@BraveFencerZan Useless decisions in Until Dawn?! Every character can die if you don't choose your decisions wisely enough.
No interest in the horror genre. Game of Thrones! I'm in.
Its appreciated that they have given us a proper game (Until Dawn) for a change, game of thrones telltales is though utterly boring crap.
@apostatemage There are choices, but they aren't very deep or far reaching. A few walkthroughs and reviews mentioned this.
Pretty good month for PS3. Can't wait to play Tokyo Jungle and Darkstalkers (wanted to try this series for a while now!)
Don't care at all about Until Dawn but I'll give it a try. Telltale games are usually lol tier these days so I'll give that one a pass.
