PlayStation Plus subscribers always anxiously await when their free games will be announced for the month. Below is a list of freebies for the PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita for July 2015, and it is only a question of what and when will be available for free in August of 2015. Here are some suppositions on what will be available.
If you are looking for estimations as to what will be available, a recent post on PlayStation Forums made some interesting guesses from user terminatorx0606. He suggests that there should be Metal Slug 3 for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, as well as the remastered classic game Grim Fandango for the PS4 and PS Vita. For PS3 and PS4 could be Resident Evil HD, with Limbo for just the PS4, Watch Dogs available for the PS3, and Freedom Wars for the PS Vita.
Well, it will be a while before it is known what the free games will be for August 2015, but here is a list of what is still available for the month of July 2015. According to the PlayStation Blog, July's PlayStation Plus games include some exciting ones like Rocket League, a futuristic sports action game which offers PS4/PC cross-platform play. Rocket League is one of four PS4 games available, with another being Styx, Master of Shadows, a "goblin stealth game", according to Polygon.
Available for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita is Entwined as well as Mousecraft. Entwined is a rhythm game about a bird and a fish that are in love, that must unite to form a soaring dragon. As for Mousecraft, its website describes it as "an A to B puzzle game where players help mice in their relentless quest for cheese by stacking the world's most famous flocks: Tetrominos".
The game Rain will be available for the PS3. Rain is story of a boy who must save an invisible girl form ghostly creatures. The boy enters into this world and can also become invisible, and can only be seen in the rain. There is a lot of atmosphere and music to really make this world come to life, according to the PlayStation Store.
For the PS Vita is Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved. The Geometry Wars franchise has a history that began as a minigame created as a part of Project Gotham Racing 2, but has since flourished into its own gaming franchise. These games are meant to replicate the playing of Vector graphics, a colored line with black background that was popular from retro arcade games back in the eighties.
For those that are not familiar with PlayStation Plus, it is a paid PlayStation Network subscription service to provide users with some great features including having game patches and system software updates download automatically to the console, as well as getting some betas and demos of new games, not to mention the store discounts and the already mentioned free games. The PlayStation online multiplayer requires a subscription to PlayStation Plus, and it costs $49.99 for one year and $17.99 for three months.
There certainly is a lot of PlayStation Plus free games to enjoy for July 2015, but as for what is for August 2015, see if you can't figure out what indie game could use the time in the spotlight.
