Last week, Sony confirmed the PlayStation Plus free games for July, and the lineup includes six games for PlayStation platforms. Players with a PS4, PS3 and PS Vita players will be able to download the free games starting today around 9am PT/12pm ET. The company is giving away two games for each console, and this month?s lineup includes some of the highly popular games, including the brand new title Furi which is releasing today.
If ever the free games takes too long before appearing on the store on your end, do take note that their time of availability depends on your region. According to a PS Plus Reddit FAQ, Sony adds new PS Plus titles on the first Tuesday of the month in North America while those in Europe get theirs a few hours later. If this is true, fans will get the titles in the store soon.
Included in the lineup of PlayStation Plus free games for July are Furi and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, which Sony is giving away for PS4. Meanwhile, PS3 players will get their hands on Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood and Fat Princess. PS Vita players will be able to download Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines and Prince of Persia: Revelations.
Furi is developed by the indie studio The Game Bakers. It puts players in boss fights where they ?have to defeat nine bosses. The boss fights in Furi are reportedly exhausting but rewarding as well. According to Metacritic, Furi reviews indicate that the game is fun and challenging at the same time. The game has earned a 79 Metascore so far for PS4.
Furi is the only one among the free games for this month that has not been released on multiple platforms. Those who?ve played the game state that it is a perfect combination of a narrative centered around intense boss fights and arcade-like gameplay.
All the new PlayStation Plus free games for the month have received good feedback from fans. If we compare the lineup of games with Xbox Games With Gold, it seems that Sony has the upper hand against Microsoft this month.
