    Sprung a Leak!

    Like clockwork every month, leaker billbil-kun from Dealabs has revealed the free titles Sony will include in its PlayStation Plus service for July 2022. While there is every chance that this list may be inaccurate, the track record for billbil-kun has been flawless. As mentioned above, Sony is set to include Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time for PS4 and PS5 alongside The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan for PS4. In addition to those two titles, the indie multiplayer title Arcadegeddon will be available for users on both PS4 and PS5.

    Surprisingly, none of these titles were made available on higher PlayStation Plus tiers. Last month, God of War was included in the Essential tier but was previously available to PlayStation 5 owners since the console’s launch in November 2020. Sony will have a tough balancing act to pull off moving forward on what to give essential subscribers without devaluing customers paying more for Extra or Premium levels.

    Don’t Forget Last Month’s Games

    With this leak out in the wild, it points to Sony updating its selection of free games fairly early in July. Typically swapped out on the first Tuesday of each month, users will now have only one week left to nab God of War, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl for free. Many may already have those games, but it’s still nice to remember to claim these games before they disappear.
