The PS Plus games line up for July 2022 has seemingly leaked ahead of the official reveal, which is set to take place on Wednesday, 29th June, 2022. The leak once again comes from Dealabs, with user billbil kun having outed numerous PS Plus updates in the past. As such, there’s very little reason to doubt this latest leak.
According to the aforementioned post, July 2022’s PS Plus Essential games are as follows:
Crash Bandicoot 4 is probably the headline act here — a continuation of the classic platforming series that released in 2020 for PS4, and was ported to PS5 in 2021.
However, it’s choose-you-own-horror title The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan that’s bound to stir conversation. This is because Man of Medan is already available through PS Plus Extra — one of the new PS Plus subscription tiers that just launched. This is another example of Sony’s services overlapping — something that we saw multiple times on PS Now, before it was folded into the overhauled PS Plus.
And finally, Arcadegeddon is a colourful multiplayer shooter, which is set to release on the 5th July — also the day that these PS Plus games will become available to download. Online multiplayer titles have become a staple of PS Plus over the last six months or so. Being on PS Plus gives these games a shot at reaching a wider audience, but it’s safe to say that not everyone is a fan of this strategy.
What do you make of this supposed selection?
