PlayStation Plus subscribers be warned: this is your final chance to download the free PS4 games for June 2020.
The next batch of PS Plus free games have a July 7 release date on PS4. There’s no official launch time, but the new games should be available at around midday.
The new games include NBA 2K20, as well as Rise of the Tomb Raider. As a special anniversary bonus, PS Plus subscribers can also download Erica.
It’s also worth pointing out that PlayStation Plus members can grab a ten-year anniversary theme for the PS4.
If you haven’t already downloaded the June 2020 free PS4 games, then you really should, because they’re pretty good.
The outgoing PS Plus games include Call of Duty WW2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is the pick of the bunch for July 2020, although NBA 2K20 is also a decent game.
“NBA 2K has evolved into much more than a basketball simulation,” reads the PlayStation Blog description.
“With its immersive open-world Neighborhood, NBA 2K20 is a platform for gamers and ballers to come together and create what’s next in basketball culture.
“Take your skills to the next level, featuring an upgraded motion engine with signature styles, advanced shooting controls, a new dribble size-up system, refined off-ball collisions, and a new read & react defensive game.”
While NBA 2K20 was praised for the action on the court, fans and critics weren’t as happy with all of the in-game microtransactions and gambling mechanics.
Rise of the Tomb Raider, meanwhile, shifts the action to Siberia, where Lara Croft uncovers a lost city and ancient mystery.
Sitting pretty with a Metacritic score of 88%, the game boasts some of the best visuals on the PS4. It also features a smattering of excellent puzzle tombs, as well as some fantastic action set-pieces.
“Featuring epic, high-octane action moments set in the most beautifully hostile environments on earth, Rise of the Tomb Raider delivers a cinematic survival action adventure where you will join Lara Croft on her first tomb raiding expedition.
“Explore Awe-Inspiring Deadly Tombs – Huge ancient spaces littered with deadly traps, solve dramatic environmental puzzles, and decipher ancient texts to reveal crypts as you take on a world filled with secrets to discover.”
Then there’s Erica, which is a cinematic game with live action visuals and multiple endings.
The game can actually be controlled using iOS and Android smartphones, making it one of the more unique experiences available on PS4.
