PlayStation Plus Free Games for June Announced, PS4 Getting Two Titles

From June onwards, Sony will streamline PlayStation Plus to have two titles for PS4, PS3, and Vita.

Starting from June 2014, Sony's PlayStation Plus service will offer two free PlayStation 4 games per month as part of its Instant Game Collection.

The service had previously been offering one game per month for Sony's latest console, alongside a handful for PS3 and Vita titles. Now the PlayStation Blog reports that PS Plus will simply offer two games per month for each platform.

What do you get in June, then? PS4 owners worldwide will be able to play Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate, a revamped version of the PS3's Pixeljunk Shooter 1 and 2 that will also feature Cross Buy for Vita, and Trine 2: The Complete Story.

Meanwhile, PS3 owners in the US will get to sample NBA 2K14 and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Those who own a Vita (by the way, they're awesome!) will get Terraria and Mutant Mudds Deluxe. The lineup is slightly different for those in Europe; check the bottom of this post for full details.

Also, the timing of the service has been rejiggered so that all of the games will now be made available from the first Tuesday of each month (Wednesday in Europe) and be available on the service for the whole month. Hurrah! Gone are the days of having to check PlayStation Plus every week to see what the games are. But along with this new move, Sony warns that many of the games that have existed in the Instant Game Collection for many months now are likely to be removed in the near future.

Here's the full lineup of the free PlayStation Plus games for June, for both Europe and the US:

Can't wait for June 10th so I can get these month's PlayStation Plus free games. Looking to get Terraria for the PS Vita as welll as Mutant Mudds Deluxe, but I'm mostly excited for Terraria to go free for PlayStation Vita as I already have it on my PC on Steam, and it would be nice to play it when on the go.

Another awful month for PS3 holders. Playstation offerings have taken a serious nosedive, but this is nearing the last straw for myself. Remember the golden months when we could look forward to games like Bioshock: Infinite, and Borderlands 2? No longer, it seems. I knew it was reaching a critical point when I was actually EXCITED about Castle of Illusion last month, instead of the supposed "blockbuster" titles. I'm now harshly reminded why I never buy ps+ for more than 3 months at a time. Ya got one last chance, playstation

Glad I joined PS+ yesterday! Looking forward to Sly Cooper, and I'll be getting the two PS4 games for when I get a PS4 later this year.

Funny HOW PS4 get's crap compared to the other previous generations.... PS4 should be the main focus! I'm never buying a console at launch ever again.

This stinks if you ask me..."But along with this new move, Sony warns that many of the games that have existed in the Instant Game Collection for many months now are likely to be removed in the near future". Sounds like when it;s all said and done there is gonna be less stuff on there for PS3.

I am excited to play Sly Cooper, I played the demo and liked it awhile ago but I just never wanted to pay the $20 to buy it.

I have to admit that I've been pretty disappointed with PS+ the last few months, if this is the way they're gonna keep doing it then I might as well skip renewing my account next month. I can't believe I'm saying this but I think Xbox actually has better games this time, hell it almost makes me wanna buy another 360 and a Gold card...


I'm mostly playing WoW these days anyway so it's not really a big deal for me.

I'll definitely be trying NBA 2K14. I wish this was on the PS4 however. I wonder how big this file it though and if this is the FULL game or just exhibition or some other minor mode? I'll definitely get Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time as well. PS4 didn't get much. Trine 2 should be ok, but that's about it.

Oh sweet, indie games for PS4, where's our NBA 2K14?

For the first time the 360 beats out the ps3. I'll download the ps3 games just to have them but they are behind the 20 other games I have to play.

Europe gets Dragon's Crown and the US gets Terraria? That sucks.

It'd make more sense if NBA 2K14 was US exclusive, not Sly Cooper...

Damn, Sony

Well that is expected, one year ago when there were only PS3 and PSV, we got about 6 games per month (usually 3-4 for PS3 and 2-3 for PSV) but now with the PS4 they have to lower the number of games for PSV/PS3 so they can start releasing more games for PS4...There are still 6 games per month (2 for each console) they just seem less if you only own one or two of the consoles.

Great! Wanted to play a Sly Cooper game for ages, but it isn't that popular in seconhand market. I didn't plan to buy any sports games, but for free - me and my gaming buddy are gonna enjoy it

@ikyasumi I'm giving them till July. That's when my year goes out. I'm so disappointed, sports games and cheap indie games aren't so great.

@BuNKiTZ don't forget to claim them though, you can do so by getting them from the store via a browser.

@Cpt_Cosmonaut In 10 years when the next consoles come out, you will be waiting 10 years and six months!

It bugs me when people think like this. They're not going to give their mainline titles away for free so soon after launch. I think that once the one year mark hits, you'll start to see titles like Knack and Killzone hit the IGC. And that timing seems about right to me.

@Cpt_Cosmonaut It's not like they can afford to give away some of their bigger titles at the moment. The PS4 DID just come out about half a year ago. Just give it some time and they'll eventually start putting up some of the bigger games for the IGC. And the two games we're getting for June aren't exactly crap, you know.

@DarkNeoBahamut you only ever got 2 for ps3 and vita not 3 or 4 just that last months ps+ games would not be removed for 2 months

@mr_nee That's what I did with PES14. I would've never paid for it, but for free I'll give it a shot. Plus I'm terrible at football games.

Thanks a ton dude. I didn't know you could do that. I always thought you had to purchase them through the system you wanted to play them on. My god, the games I've missed.

@joseph_mach @LucentWolf Holding back on buying a game and getting it on PS+ for free is almost a game itself.

@blackace you could play against any owner of NBA 2k14 online, whether they have the disc or digital version. just a fyi
