With Xbox revealing next months Games with Gold titles already, Sony has now announced their own free games, with Playstation Plus’ July offerings unveiled.
Next month, subscribers will be able to download NBA 2K20, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, and Erica on Playstation 4. Nick Maguire, General Manager, Global Store Services, has detailed the games below.
“NBA 2K has evolved into much more than a basketball simulation. With its immersive open-world Neighborhood, NBA 2K20 is a platform for gamers and ballers to come together and create what’s next in basketball culture. Take your skills to the next level, featuring an upgraded motion engine with signature styles, advanced shooting controls, a new dribble size-up system, refined off-ball collisions, and a new read & react defensive game.”
“In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara uncovers an ancient mystery that places her in the crosshairs of a ruthless organization known as Trinity. As she races to find a powerful and sought-after artifact before Trinity, the trail leads to a myth about the Lost City of Kitezh. Lara knows she must reach the Lost City and its hidden secrets before Trinity as she sets out for Siberia on a thrilling expedition.”
“This feature-length cinematic experience merges high-fidelity Hollywood production values with engaging, tactile gameplay. Become Erica, a brave young lady plagued with nightmares of your father’s murder. With the traumatic events that have haunted you as a child dragged back into the light of the present-day vis grisly new clues, it’s up to you to unearth the shocking truth behind this devastating tragedy. Every choice you make influences how the game develops, with multiple endings awaiting you at the finale of the emotional branching narrative.”
It should be noted that Erica requires the ERICA companion app, a Wi-Fi connection, and a compatible iOS (iOS 9.0 or later) or Android (4.1 and up) smartphone to play.
In celebration of Playstation Plus’ 10th anniversary, there will also be a free PS4 theme available for a limited time, as well as a free online multiplayer weekend starting July 4 at 12:01AM through July 5 at 11:59PM local time.
