PlayStation Plus Free July Games Include TowerFall and Dead Space 3

Sony announces the six free games that Plus members in North America will receive in July.

Update: Sony has announced the list of Plus games that will be available to those in North America, and it's identical save for one game: In place of LEGO Batman 2, U.S. Vita owners will get Muramasa Rebirth. These games will be available beginning on July 1 and, despite an erroneous statement on Sony's part, Doki Doki Universe supports Cross-Buy on all three systems.

Original Story: The batch of free games that PlayStation Plus members in Europe will receive in July have been announced, and they include some recent, high-quality games. As Sony began doing last month, it will offer two free games for each of its three current platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.

PS4:

PS3:

  • Dead Space 3: The most recent game in the action/horror series introduced a quality co-op mode when it launched early last year. Read GameSpot's review
  • Vessel: This indie platformer places an emphasis on solving physics-based puzzles.

Vita:

All six games will be made available to European PlayStation Plus members on July 2. That's the same day that the current free offerings--including PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time--will leave the service, so be sure to download those sometime in the next week if you haven't already. By simply initiating a download on any of these Instant Game Collection titles, they will be permanently added to your library so they can be played or re-downloaded for as long as you remain a Plus member.

Free PlayStation Plus games for North America have not yet been officially announced, but we will update this story with details as soon as they are made available.

I'm getting here from a bad link on the main page.  The article about Halo's Sanctuary map is sending me here.

Bought Strider for PC...I was pretty certain it would come to PSN+ though.

Fun game, I enjoyed it....Bosses take few tries get their moves down.

Not overly fussed about Strider..  But TowerFall - hell yeah!


Heard good things about that game, and I miss some old school single screen multiplayer battles!  Probably remind me of the days of micro-machines.. they were good times!

As a guy who bought Dead Space 3 a few months ago for $30 and hasn't got around to playing it- FUCK

Muramasa Rebirth is seriously an awesome game for the Vita. With it being free it will make the platinum that much more Ultra Rare :)

Free games! Awesome! right? no, when you look at the list it always consists of empty condom wrappers and bong resin, and other random garbage, when are we gonna get GOOD free games? never I guess, the good games aren't coming until October and you have to pay for those.

And on the rare occasion there is a good game it's always on PS3 and not PS4 and it's always one I've already played and beaten

I'm sick of these indie games on the PS4.I actually enjoyed Trine 2 a lot and Strider looks kinda cool too,but most of them are crap.Hurry up with the fraking AAA games Sony !

Dead Space 3 is a dope ass co-op game. I beat it on XBOX 360. Might not be scary like 1 but still a solid and fun game.

Thank you so much Sony for providing me with Strider for my PS4.

Japan's line up has seemed more interesting. Last time I was on my Jap account, they had Steins Gate.

I've been really fortunate to about only 3 games they have offered in the years I have had PS+.


Dead Space 3 is the only Dead Space I am missing. This is a good haul for me.

@quickshooterMk2 AAA titles generally appear on PSN about 11-13 months after release and Ps4 hasn't even been out for that long. Therefore no AAA titles for Ps4.

I've liked most of them. Most of them I had not purchased. Almost bought Strider, but held out. Glad I did now. You're a bit of a whiner.

You must be high on bong resin if you think the free games arent good ones. This place always amazes me with the sheer stupidity of people posting.

@TERMINATOR-SSD That list is shared by the UK with the exception of Muramasa Rebirth. The UK will instead get Lego Batman 2 : DC Super Heroes.

@virtuasega Some people consider these indie or side scrolling style of games sh1t.Including me.I played plenty of those in the 90's and I don't need to play them in 2014 as well.

@Sun-Tzu-GE @Shilleto If that is the case, why would you want it?
  It is obviously good enough for you to want to play it.

@repetitiousv2 The average human states that he doesn't like the games. It's the bellow average the one that has the need of adorning his words when it's not necessary so he can pretend to be more than he is worth.

Next time think before posting.

Man, did you take offense? Your reply wasn't necessary, but you did anyway.....what does that say about you?

@repetitiousv2 It says that I know when is appropriate to correct somebody because I suspect hat he only seeks to be insulting with others. Your last answer confirmed this.
Done with you.

repetitiousv2
repetitiousv2

Lol yea You are, Because I had a snarky comment when someone asked what's wrong with me for not liking a game, you feel the need to jump the high horse instead of ignoring the harmless comment, but you needed to feel like you put someone in their place....replying back, then saying I'm done with you confirmed this.
