PlayStation Plus has already released its free games to all subscribers for this month, but the revamped service is now operating on a system where more games will be released to higher-tier Extra and Premium subscribers mid-month.
The Extra Tier gives you access to a collection of hundreds of PS4 and PS5 games to download and play, with plenty of big blockbusters and hidden games for you to try.
Leading this month is Stray (PS5/PS4), which will be released on the first day of service. Play as a cat navigating a cyberpunk town to solve an ancient mystery while unlocking trophies with some brilliant/terrible cat pun names.

We also have Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade (PS5)the current-gen version of the hugely successful first installment from Square Enix FFVII Remake Trilogy. Travel through Midgar and experience the expanded story with its gonzo twists and try out the additional episode featuring the spunky ninja Yuffie and a very difficult boss fight against a character from a forgotten spin-off Lamentation of Cerberus. The standard PS4 version is already available through Extra.
Another big game for this month is from Square Enix Marvel’s Avengers (PS5/PS4). Although the game has been bombarded with critics and players for its microtransactions, there is a decent storyline to play through and a variety of heroes added in post-launch updates.
Also a load of Assassin’s Creed title – The Ezio Collection, Black flag, cry of freedom, Unit and Villain Remastered (all PS4) – join the lineup, as do: Saints Row IV, re-elected, Saints Row: Gat from Hell, Spirit of the North: Enhanced Edition, Ice Age: Scrat’s crazy adventure, Jumanji the video game, Paw Patrol on a roll! and ReadySet Heroes (all PS4).
Unfortunately, new additions to the premium tier – which adds downloadable PS1, PS2, and PSP games, streaming options for much of the Plus library, and additional stream-only PS3 games – are few and far between. Although we get PSP titles No heroes allowed! and LocoRoco Midnight Carnival.
Interestingly, the Italian PS blog lists the PS1 classic Dino Crisis and PSP titles Ridge racer 2 and Soulcalibur: Broken Fate too, but mentions of them were quickly removed (but not quickly enough for fans to notice). While we’re sure these games will come at some point, it’s disappointing to see a premium tier with only two additions.
All these games will be added to PS Plus July 19th. It’s important to note that, unlike the basic Essential tier, games here work similarly to video streaming services in that they toggle in and out of availability.
