Well, it turns out the leaks were partly right and partly wrong.
I wrote about two games that had been leaked as possible PS Plus games for the month of June: Marvel’s Spider-Man (which seemed very unlikely) and Star Wars: Battlefront II (which seemed more likely).
Turns out, the second leak was correct. Star Wars: Battlefront II joins Call Of Duty: WWII as the two free games for PS+ subscribers this June.
That’s quite a haul—two major, AAA shooters. One historical, the other space opera. Both quite different in terms of gameplay, map size and so forth, but also both first-person competitive shooters.
It’s almost like something got mixed up at Sony over the past two months. May’s two games were both sims—a city-building sim and a farming sim, which you can see here—now June’s games are both FPS’s.
That’s . . . odd, to say the least. Normally we’d get one shooter and one sim or something along those lines.
Whatever the case, I can’t recommend Call Of Duty: WWII highly enough. The new War Mode alone is worth the price of admission (or, since it’s free, the download file and your precious time).
This game was already announced and released on PS Plus a few days ago, making it a sort of May/June hybrid. I assumed Sony would release two more games but I guess it’s just these two.
I’m less enthusiastic about Star Wars: Battlefront II but that may be partly because of the game’s disastrous launch. I should play it again now that some time has passed and EA and DICE have fixed some of its more glaring issues. It’s certainly a gorgeously designed game and fun if you’re into Star Wars.
Either way, it’s free and worth checking out. Enjoy!
Call of Duty: WWII is available now on PS Plus. Star Wars: Battlefront II will be available on June 2nd.
