Now Playing: Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Games For July 2019 Out Now

The free PlayStation Plus offerings for July have gotten a last-minute substitution. Sony announced that instead of Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, as previously announced, members will instead get Detroit: Become Human. This is the Digital Deluxe edition, which means it also includes another Quantic Dream game: Heavy Rain. The statement announcing the change didn't give much insight as to the reason for the swap, but the news came just hours before the free games were set to arrive on PSN. They're now available on the PlayStation Store and will be available until August 6.

"We are making a swap to the PS Plus games lineup for July," the announcement states. "This month, we are adding Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition, which also includes Heavy Rain, to the July games lineup instead of Pro Evolution Soccer 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience."

The two-for-one Quantic Dream offering will be joined by Horizon Turbo Chase. Quantic Dream's games have become known for moody, atmospheric cinematic qualities and photorealistic characters, often matching their real-life actors. Detroit: Become Human is the studio's latest, taking place in a not-too-distant future where androids begin to rise up against their subservient roles.

"I played with my best intentions. Things didn't always go the way I wanted, but that was a burden I chose to bear, and the story benefitted from my commitment, flowcharts be damned," Peter Brown wrote in GameSpot's review. "After completing the game, I tried to go back and fight my instincts to see what would happen if I chose a darker path. It never felt justified nor worthwhile. Detroit is well worth playing, but it struggles to strike the right balance between giving you freedom of choice and reminding you that it's all a game in the end. Cage and Quantic Dream are getting closer to nailing this style of game, but it's obvious that there's still room to grow."
