Now Playing: Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Games For June 2019 Revealed

Sony may be skipping E3 this year, but the company isn't ignoring the nearly 100 million PS4 owners out there. With the company officially announcing its annual Days of Play sale--starting on June 7 and ending on June 17--the only thing that could sweeten the pie is free games, and now Sony has announced June 2019's free titles for PS Plus subscribers. Here's the lineup coming on the first Tuesday of the month, just ahead of E3

As detailed on the PlayStation blog, beginning on June 4, PS Plus members can download both Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and Sonic Mania for the low price of free. Both titles will be available to claim until July 2. As always, claiming them will allow you to continue playing them for as long as your Plus subscription is active.

The Handsome Collection packs in improved versions of both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, which recently received enhanced texture packs for PS4 Pro owners. It's an ideal way to catch up on the series before Borderlands 3 arrives later this year. Sonic Mania, meanwhile, is a well-received 2D entry in the long-running series.

May's free PS Plus games--Overcooked and What Remains of Edith Finch--are still available to download until the new games arrive. There's still time to add them to your ever-growing backlog before they're replaced on June 4.

In our Borderlands: The Handsome Collection review, we said, "Even considering issues presented by Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, The Handsome Collection is still a great compilation, allowing you to witness not only Jack’s tale, but play a major role in shaping the history of Pandora itself, along with its lonely moon."

In our Sonic Mania review, we said that "Sonic Mania methodically uses its sentimental appeal to great effect, but in the process, it heals the wounds inflicted by its most disappointing predecessors and surpasses the series' best with its smart and interpretive design."

Sony: - Yes, yes... Be pleased about this month, because I'm mailing everyone to tell about the price increase (AGAIN) in subscriptions!

Been playing through the HC on Xbox X. Having a problem with the Switch codes used to get better loot. They work on the console, but not when entered on the site.

Sonic Mania, nice.

Avatar image for atherworld

Already have Sonic Mania. But will pick up the pre-sequel, having only ever played Tales Form The Borderlands.

Avatar image for m4a5

Never played the pre-sequel, so that'll be nice.

And has been ages since I played a sonic game.....

Avatar image for xeddmc

Finally. This goes a long way to making up for the horrid May games

Avatar image for freedom01

really good line-up for June. Was interested on Sonic Mania, so this is a plus for me.

Avatar image for JimmyCos

I already have them, jesus **** Playstation

Avatar image for Slinqy

I never finished The Pre-Sequel, so I will definitely download, BUT, it will have to take a backseat for the moment. Too many other games on my plate right now.

Avatar image for fanboyman

Nice but I already have those games on other platforms.

When are the Xbox GwG gonna be announced? First group should be released in a couple days!

Avatar image for srfilk86

Avatar image for chubby170

@mindphyx77822: Just to chime in, Steep was pathetic.

Avatar image for Slinqy

@mindphyx77822: You forgot Hitman.

Avatar image for ray1102

@Slinqy: And Mafia 3 which I enjoyed very much.

By this point it's as close to a FACT as you can get that ~

Those that haven't played/owned Borderlands2 by now is purely by design..

*This is why Backwards compatable is important.

I look forward to the Xbox360 Backwards compat games every month..

Avatar image for just1mohr

@sippio: Yes, I luv my XB backwards compat games that get released every few weeks on top of free games. My PS4 now only plays exclusives, gets me bored fast & collects dust. The dark side has won me, can't believe it!

Avatar image for mindphyx77822

@just1mohr: thats why I buy a next gen system to play last gen games. Yeah give me god of war 3 over horizen ZD get a grip i'll buy a ps3 for 30 bucks if i really needd to play old gen ggames

Avatar image for mindphyx77822

@sippio: I get handsome collection in 4K on my pro do you on your S? Nope

Avatar image for aross2004

@mindphyx77822: Wait a minute. Why are you comparing the PS4 Pro to the standard XBOX One S? How is that a fair comparison? That's like comparing the XBOX One X to the standard PS4.

The standard PS4 version of HJC is not in 4K either, which is what system you should be comparing to the One S.

Both PS4 Pro and One X run the game in 4K, (although the Pro version is only upscaled with HD textures), so your whole comparison is bogus, and completely misleading.

Avatar image for mindphyx77822

@aross2004: multi plat games 900P on s 1080P on ps4 thats not misleading FACT

Avatar image for aross2004

@mindphyx77822: Now there's a fair comparison cause we're talking OG PS4 to One S.

But then I could just say that most multiplat games are better on OneX than the Pro, (PS4 only does native 4k on a very few games, most are just upscaled checkerboard rendering), but the whole console wars debate is just kind of retarded at this point.

I never miss a chance to keep fanboys honest though. I own all consoles so I don't have to talk shit about any of them.

Now go back to playing your console(s) of choice, and stop acting like you have to defend a piece of plastic.

Avatar image for mindphyx77822

@aross2004: goto psstore and dl the 4K pack for handsome, can your eyes tell the diff between 4k or checkerboard mine cann't

Avatar image for CyberEarth

@mindphyx77822: you need a 4k tv then, lol

If you still can't tell, get your optometrist to up your prescription.

Avatar image for barcaazul

Way better than last month. Looked at Sonic mania a few times, but never pulled the trigger to buy it

Avatar image for Barighm

@barcaazul: If you've ever cared for Sonic, you really should. The game is excellent, even when compared to the old school games.

Avatar image for barcaazul

@Barighm: Yes that's why I came close to getting it on several occasions, so really pleased its coming to plus. The first game was great and I remember getting all the crystals.

@barcaazul: same here
