PlayStation Plus: Is the first Free game for July already known?

PlayStation Plus

Sony normally introduces the "free" games to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on the last Wednesday of the current month. That would be the case this time on June 30th. However, there is already a reference to at least one of the games that you can download "for free" as part of the subscription.

The information comes from the ResetEra user and leaker "Deluxera", who recently signed up commented on this issue. According to him, users of PlayStation Plus can look forward to the action adventure A Plague Tale: Innocence in July this year. He does not reveal where he got this information from. However, especially in the recent past, he was 100 percent correct with his forecasts and leaks. Not only did he correctly predict the announcement of a sequel called A Plague Tale: Requiem, but also the release of a NextGen remaster of A Plague Tale: Innocence. Accordingly, there is some evidence that we are also correct in his statement regarding the "free" game for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Sony has not yet commented on it.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is a darkly staged action- Adventure from the developer team Asobo Studio, which came onto the market in May 2019 and caused quite a stir. You slip into the role of the 14-year-old girl Amicia, who is on the run from the Inquisition together with her younger brother Hugo. The focus is mainly on stealth passages, as the siblings are very vulnerable and not particularly strong at fighting. The gameplay is sometimes not only very dark, but also brutal.

PS Plus July 2021 free PS4 and PS5 games reveal: Bad news for PlayStation Plus subscribers

PlayStation Plus © SONY PlayStation Plus

The free PS Plus monthly games reveal is always a highlight for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Unfortunately, however, there's bad news for fans awaiting the July 2021 free PS5 and PS4 games reveal, because it's still over a week away.

Because of the way the dates fall, Sony isn't expected to reveal the next wave of PlayStation Plus games until 4.30pm June 30.

The July 2021 PS Plus releases will be available to download and play less than a week later on July 6.

While there's always a chance Sony will break with tradition and announce the games early, this seems unlikely without a State of Play event in the diary.

It's more likely that the next batch of PlayStation Plus free games will leak ahead of the scheduled reveal.

Indeed, if the latest reports are to be believed, one PS Plus free game may have already leaked.

According to the rumours, the PS5 version of A Plague Tale Innocence could be included in the July 2021 PS Plus line-up.

The rumours mainly revolve around the plans for the PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrades of A Plague Tale.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is getting a next-gen upgrade on July 6, which is the same day the PS Plus games will be available to download.

With the game also coming to Xbox Game Pass, the thinking is that it would be a great fit for PlayStation Plus, especially with the announcement of a sequel.

The next-gen Plague Tale update will include a visual boost for 4K graphics and 60 frames-per-second gameplay.

Needless to say, the PS5 version will support 3D Audio, while DualSense functionality is also expected.

A unique game involving Inquisition soldiers and swarms of rats, A Plague Tale is currently sitting pretty with an 81% score on Metacritic.

'Follow the grim tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending journey through the darkest hours of history.

'Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo will come to know and trust each other.

'As they struggle to survive against overwhelming odds, they will fight to find purpose in this brutal, unforgiving world.'

The sequel - which was announce during E3 - will launch on PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch (via the cloud) in 2022.
