We’re in a somewhat unusual situation – one of the games are already confirmed – but what is the other title for June?
One of the PlayStation Plus titles is already official – after all, the PlayStation Store cannot lie -, and even the PlayStation Blog confirms that one of the PS Plus games for June is 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII by Sledgehammer Games and Activision Blizzard. It’s unusual to see such an early reveal, but we have seen Call of Duty games go free for Plus members around E3.
The other game was already leaked via a teaser video, so we already suspected this game, but now, it is official: the other PlayStation Plus title for June is Star Wars: Battlefront II, which seems logical, as there was previously a deal in Europe where you could get Star Wars: Battlefront’s Ultimate Edition if you bought a 12-month PlayStation Plus subscription. And now, its sequel’s updates have ended, so the Plus members would get the complete game. (In 2017, Electronic Arts has messed up massively with two games and their respective loot boxes. Need For Speed: Payback was the other title…) The two games will be available until July 6.
It at least sounds decent, as there have been some awkwardly weird titles this year (especially the May titles, which include Farming Simulator 19 and Cities: Skylines PlayStation 4 Edition, both aimed at a niche community, and these games are free until June 1). Around June, Microsoft and Sony tend to spend more cash on freebies, and now, since E3 is not happening this year, it might make more sense… especially how this Holiday season, both the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 are slated for a release, and their arrival might turn the Xbox Live Games With Gold and the PlayStation Plus programs upside down.
Too bad that we still get just two games.
