What are PS Plus members going to be getting in June? Now we know! PS Plus has just confirmed the three titles coming to their PS Plus service in June 2021 and there's a little something for everyone.

LATEST - PS Plus Games Confirmed

The leak was right! June 2021's PS Plus games have just been confirmed by PlayStation and there are some fantastic titles up for grabs.

Star Wars Squadrons is the big talking point, but PS5 co-op title Operation: Tango is a brand new title!

Operation Tango and Star Wars Squadrons will be available until July 5th. Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown is going to be available until August 2nd!

Full Lineup Leaked

Areajugones, who correctly reported the PS Plus lineup ahead of time in May, have now reportedly leaked the lineup for June as well.

Below is the full list of what they say the June 2021 PS Plus games will be.

  • Star Wars: Squadrons (PS4)
  • Operation: Tango (PS5)
  • Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (PS5)

Of course, these games haven't been completely confirmed, so we'll confirm once they are.

When Will The PS Plus Games Be Announced & Released

Sony usually reveals the next PS Plus games to be given away on the last Wednesday of the month, and at the same time too.

This means that we can expect to see the reveal for June's PS Plus games on Wednesday, May 26th at 11:30 am EST/4:30 pm BST.

Following this, the games should be available to download from the PS Plus section of the PS Store at 00:00 local time on June 1st.

What To Expect

Each month we can expect to see two PS4 games and one PS5 game given away.

In the past, we have seen Sony give away extra PS4 or PS5 games, but this isn't every month so we're not expecting it to happen, but it'll be a nice surprise if it does.

The PS5 port of Operation Tango is due to be released on June 1st, the same date the PS Plus games go live.

In the past, we have seen multiple games launch on the service, including Oddworld: Soulstorm.

So, it is possible that we could see Operation Tango as the free PS5 game for June 2021.

Here is some more information about the game.

"It takes two to save the world in this cooperative spy adventure. Pair up with a friend as Agent or Hacker—with only your voices to connect you—and work together to bring a hi-tech global menace to its knees.
  • This game is online co-op only and requires a microphone.
  • Thanks to the Friend Pass, any of your friends can play with you for free.
  • Cross-platform play enabled

Red Faction Guerrilla Remastered (PS4)

A remaster of the classic Xbox 360 game, Red Faction Guerrilla is the third instalment in the series. Unfortunately, it appears that the series has been dropped, which is a shame because it was a fantastic FPS series that featured environment destruction and was one of the first games to do so.

Here is some more information about the game.

"Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Red Faction: Guerrilla re-defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction."

Dirt 5 (PS4)

Finally, we have Dirt 5, the latest title in the series and the final entry to be released by Codemasters before being acquired by EA in February 2021.

Here is some more information about the game.

"DIRT 5 is a fun, amplified, off-road arcade racing experience created by Codemasters. Blaze a trail on routes across the world, covering gravel, ice, snow and sand, with a roster of cars ranging from rally icons to trucks, to GT heroes. With a star-studded Career, four-player split-screen, innovative online modes, livery editor and more new features, DIRT 5 is the next generation of extreme racing."
