LATEST - Official PS Plus Announcement
PlayStation has finally put us all out of our misery and confirmed what games we're getting with our PS Plus membership in July 2021.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is this month's PS5 title and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and WWE 2K Battlegrounds round out the PS4 games line-up. It's a little unusual and not what we were expecting, but not a bad selection overall.
All of these games will be available from July 6th until August 2nd.
Has The Full Line-Up Been Leaked?
This isn't the first time someone has come out with a full PS Plus line-up a few days ahead of the announcement and been right; It's also not the first time someone has done this and been wrong.
As you can see below, it looks like A Plague Tale: Innocence, Uncharted: Lost Legacy, and WRC 9 could be the July 2021 PS Plus games. With titles like Predator: Hunting Grounds, Death Stranding, and Gravity Rush 2 also being talked about... You have to wonder if WRC 9 is a bit of a disappointment.
As the original tweeter has stated, the image DOES look a little sketchy. However, crazier things have happened and there's nothing too unbelievable in there. We'll have to wait and see, though...
Nothing is certain until PlayStation confirm it...
Reveal Time Confirmed
The full lineup will be revealed via PlayStation's official Twitter account at 4:30pm BST/11:30am ET on June 30.
As soon as it is revealed, we'll have the full lineup here for you.
Is "A Plague Tale" Coming?
It could just be a coincidence, but Asobo Studio has just announced that the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 versions of A Plague Tale: Innocence is due to release on July 6th.
This is the same day we're expecting the next month's PS Plus games to be added to the service. Control's Ultimate Edition was announced not long before it was added to PS Plus a couple of months ago. Could we be seeing a similar sort of situation for July 2021?
Wreckfest is another title that more recently launched its next-gen version at the same time it was added to PS Plus' free games service. It's all very suspect, in any case.
What to Expect
As is the norm for Playstation Plus, you can expect to see two PS4 games and one PS5 game.
This being said, they go off script a little sometimes and tend to give an extra game or something special. With E3 just over and both Nintendo and Xbox bringing out some great showcases, they might want to do something interesting for the fans.
Our July 2021 PS Plus Predictions
For a little bit of fun, we can give our predictions for July's games. This being said, there is a pretty good reason for some of them.
A Plague Tale: Innocence
As reported by GameRant, a ResetEra user well known for good leaks suggested a PS5 version of A Plague Tale is on the way and that it would release on PS Plus next month. This user also leaked A Plague Tale: Requiem and accurately predicted it would be a GamePass Day one game.
This would be a great choice for PS Plus given the recent sequel announcement. It's a great single-player story-driven game that fans of The Last of Us may enjoy.
Maybe we would be a little too lucky to receive two PS5 games but A Plague Tale could be on both consoles so maybe they would commit to an exclusive this time. Godfall makes sense for a few main reasons. Being a launch title on the PS5, we recieved news of a brand new DLC on the horizon at this years E3.
To get the largest possible player base, they are bringing the game to PS4, maybe they will give it away too.
Releasing over half a year ago, The Pathless was a great indie title from the creators of Abzu. If the predictions above are correct, PlayStation would likely give a good indie title in there too.
Abzu was given away in PlayStation Plus a few years ago so they certainly won't be against this idea. One can only hope this will happen.
