Another month coming to an end means another set of games coming PlayStation Plus. It also means French website Dealabs getting the early scoop and Crash Bandicoot 4 leads the way.
As reported previously, the leak receives a credibility as the site correctly predicted the offerings for several months now. Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time headlines with the PS5 and PS4 version. Other titles joining include Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan on PS4 and Arcadegeddon for PS4 and PS4. July will be the first full month with PS Plus’s new tiers and the mid-month update. Revealed during the recent State of Play, Stray will join on July 19 for PS Plus Extra and above members. Here is a little bit about each game:
PS Plus Titles: Crash Bandicoot 4 It’s About Time – PS5, PS4
The beloved furry platformer strikes gold in the latest title. Crash Bandicoot 4 received critical praise when it launched in October 2020. Critics and fans believed it refined the series classic formula while implementing new mechanics to explore. Despite the four in the title, this is actually the eighth mainline entry in the series and follows the events after the third title, Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. I loved Crash as a kid, but didn’t dive into this one upon release. I look forward to diving into this one and seeing what shenanigans I’ll get into in this title.
Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan – PS4
The first entry in the series from Supermassive Games brings the horror to this list. It make sense to add this title as the next entry, Little Hope launched on the revamped service last month. While not as good as the PS4 exclusive Until Dawn, It’s an enjoyable experience nonetheless. My wife and I played through this together using the game’s Movie Night mode. It can be played solo or with up to four people locally. You can always play with a friend online. Those that enjoy this may want to look at the series third entry, House of Ashes, or the newest release from Supermassive, The Quarry, as well.
Arcadegeddon – PS5, PS4
After launching a year ago in Early Access, this co-operative shooter hits full release and joins PS Plus at the same time. It first appeared at the Sony State of Play in July of last year and impressed me visually. I loved the colorful nature and what we saw of the gameplay. It’s received a ton of updates over the year and will have full crossplay support at launch. Those interested in it, but don’t have PS Plus, can grab it on Xbox Series, Xbox One, and on PC via the Epic Game Store. Believe me, I’ll be downloading this and diving in day one.
Stray – PS5, PS4 (PS Plus Extra & Above)
Want to explore a mysterious world of robots as a cat? Well, you can in this title coming from publisher Annapurna Interactive. Games across the world have kept their eyes on this title since it debuted at the PS Showcase two years ago. Initially set to release last year, fans can finally see what this title and world are about in just a few weeks. Check out the trailer and get hyped for this release.
There you have it! It’s unclear if this will be all the games added for July. PlayStation stated with the new service games would be added at the beginning and middle of the month. So far, we only know of Stray, but more could be on the way. What do you think of the entries? Let us know in the chat box below or on our socials.
