We’re now having to deal with Sony announcing twice-monthly updates for PlayStation Plus when it would be more logical to update everything once a month.
The French site Dealabs has just revealed, courtesy of billbil-kun, what we can expect to see in the PlayStation Plus Essential lineup, which means that all subscribers will receive these games regardless of their subscription tier. We write this with confidence because this person has been a sure point for nearly a year and hasn’t been wrong much so far. (Could it also be due to a security breach within Sony? We wrote about this topic in more detail the other day.)
According to him, the primary title of the month would be Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 (too bad Vicarious Visions’ plan to have a new version of 3 and 4 was scrapped; the studio has since folded into Blizzard), but for those who don’t want to play two skateboarding games that have been handled carefully, they can play Yakuza: Like a Dragon (also for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4), a different take on the previous instalments, with turn-based combat and RPG gameplay. The third game is a little understated alongside Yakuza 7 (as Kasuga Ichiban’s story was released in Japan with the number 7 in its title!). Still, nothing is perfect: it’s Little Nightmares for PlayStation 4. The games will be available until September 5. The games have been confirmed.
There are still a few days left to download the July offer! Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time (PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4) from Activision Blizzard and Toys For Bob, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan (PlayStation 4) from Namco Bandai and Supermassive Games, and IllFonics’ Arcadegeddon (PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4) will be available until August 1.
What a surprising improvement in the lineup! Solid choices from Sony. Let’s hope they keep up the habit because, with three subscription levels of PlayStation Plus, it’s reasonable to expect them to offer a higher quality of service to their subscribers at the ‘entry level’.
