The lineup of free Playstation Plus games for July has just been announced. In following with the recent months’ games, July’s main PS4 games focus on the theme of choice.
- Until Dawn (PS4)
- A survival horror game that has you controlling eight vacationing teenagers who are hunted by a mysterious being. The choices you make determine their words/actions and whether or not they will survive every horror trope imaginable throughout the night. This game was much better than I expected it to be and I’d recommend it, not only to horror fans, but to anyone who’s a fan of these choice based games. It’s super fun to get a group together and play through it.
- Game of Thrones (PS4)
- Telltale’s take on the Game of Thrones universe is one I could’ve done without. The poor performance, predictable plot and illusion of choice highlight everything I hate about Telltale games, which have been good in the past. For me, The Walking Dead Season 2 marked a drop in quality from Telltale that was also seen in Game of Thrones and *shudder* Minecraft: Story Mode. Considering it’s kept me away from Telltale since playing it, I would recommend you steer clear of this one.
- Tokyo Jungle (PS3)
- Darkstalkers Resurrection (PS3)
- Element4l (PS Vita)
- Don’t Die Mr. Robot (PS4, PS Vita)
Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the Game of Thrones game, it’s nice to see that we’re getting something other than indie games every month on PS Plus. The recent months have been very similar with two Telltale games, Until Dawn, and Life is Strange, but hopefully this trend of mid-level games keeps up.
