PlayStation Plus Celebrates 10th Anniversary With An Extra Game In July

After 10 years of offering monthly free games to PlayStation gamers, PS Plus will have 3 PS4 games to download for no cost during the month of July. The games included are NBA 2K20, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, and Erica, as well as a celebratory PS4 theme and a weekend of free online multiplayer early on in the month.

It’s crazy to think that PlayStation Plus is now a decade old, after first releasing for PSN users on the PS3 back on June 29th, 2010. It would be another 2 years before subscribers started having access to the free monthly games that have come to define the service, and in celebration of this special occasion, Sony will be offering an extra free game to PS Plus members in July.

The free PS Plus games for July 2020 will be available to download from the 7th of July to the 3rd of August and cover a range of different gaming tastes. NBA 2K20 will likely only appeal to basketball fans, and its mixed to average reviews suggest that it wasn’t necessarily a slam dunk success with that crowd either. Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration is an excellent action-adventure title that sees you play as Lara Croft exploring ancient lands and ruins while trying to survive against the elements and those who are hunting you down. Meanwhile, Erica is an idiosyncratic interactive thriller that uses the DualShock 4’s touchpad in interesting ways.

It's been quite the journey for PS Plus and its members.

In addition to the monthly games and sales that PS Plus members have come to expect, there will also be a free PS4 theme released later in the week for a limited time aimed to celebrate the service’s anniversary. There will also be a free online multiplayer weekend for anyone who can access PSN between 4-5 July.

In the meantime, if you’re a PS Plus subscriber, make sure to download June’s free games, Star Wars Battlefront II and Call of Duty: WWII, before they disappear on July 6th.
