With the conclusion of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016, gaming fans are now looking forward to the next in line PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold free titles that will be released for the month of July.
Though there has been no official word yet about the future free titles coming to both PlayStation and Xbox consoles, the free titles will likely be announced in the last week of June. Still, there are several rumors about the expected titles that could possibly be making it to the Sony PS4 and the Xbox One in the upcoming month.
Rumors suggest that the PlayStation Plus subscribers may finally get Tango Gamework?s third-person psychological survival horror game, The Evil Within, as part of July?s free games. Apparently, according to MorningNewsUSA, the game is already available for free to PS4 users in Japan, so it wouldn?t be long before Sony decides to make it available for PlayStation Plus subscribers in the United States as well.
Also, with Sony announcing the Resident Evil 7 at its E3 event, it is likely that the previous version of Resident Evil 6 would be released by Sony to create hype about its new title. Ubisoft?s critically-acclaimed open-world shooter Watch Dogs also saw a sequel, so it is one of the expected titles.
PlayStation 3 fans would surely love to see The Last of Us and another title being touted for PS3 is the Bethesda?s Dishonored. With Dishonored 2 soon to be released, it would help players catch up with the game and generate enough publicity.
Though Sony?s handheld PS Vita isn?t that popular in comparison to Nintendo 3DS , it could release some of the best games like Persona 4 and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for free, to promote its product.
If you wish to be a member of PlayStation Plus and avail of all its perks and services, simply navigate through the function screen on the PlayStation Store and purchase the PlayStation Plus subscription. A 3-month subscription is worth $18 while a 12-month subscription will cost you $50.
Xbox Games with Gold
Xbox One gamers were treated to Super Meat Boy, Goat Simulator and The Crew and Xcom: Enemy Unknown via the Xbox Games with Gold service in June. As for the month of July, ThisGenGaming.com, has predicted several new titles for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 which are listed below:
Dead Rising 3
With Microsoft announcing the Capcom?s Dead Rising 4 at its E3 2016 press conference, Dead Rising 3 would make a perfect title to drive the hype for the next entry into the Dead Rising series. Also, since the game has already sold more than 2 million copies, it wouldn?t be a loss to developers to feature it on the Xbox One Games with Gold July 2016 lineup.
With Watch Dogs getting its sequel as firstlook gameplay for the new Watch Dogs 2, it is likely to be featured as part of Games with Gold July lineup. Watch Dogs is an open world action-adventure third-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft.
Forza Horizon 2
Xbox 360 console users have Forza Horizon 2 to look forward to with Games with Gold July. Microsoft also revealed an all new Forza Horizon 3 at the E3 press conference, so it is only logical that Forza Horizon 2 would be released to promote the newer title.
Forza Horizon 2 is an open-world racing video game developed for Microsoft?s Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. It is the sequel to 2012?s Forza Horizon and the seventh installment in the Forza series.
Ryse: Son of Rome
Another Xbox One title we could see is Ryse: Son of Rome. The game plunges you into the chaos and depravity of the late Roman Empire and tells the story of Marius Titus who witnesses the murder of his family at the hands of barbarians. Seeking revenge, Marius must embark on a perilous journey of revenge, betrayal and divine intervention. He joins the Roman army in Britannia and quickly rises through the ranks to become a General. As his war against the barbarians escalates, his quest unravels: to find his vengeance, he has to return to Rome. As Marius, you?ll engage in brutal combat and lead your forces into massive battles to save Rome from threats to its very existence.
