Free PS Plus Games For July 2022 Confirmed

PS Plus' monthly offering has been fairly forgettable recently, except for God of War. So should we be excited for July? Or is it another trash month...

The PS Plus games have, honestly, been whack for a while now: December was trash, November was trash... January was ok, but then we went right back to Trash City with February. March had some neat stuff, but nothing mind-blowing. April and May were pretty forgettable as well. But we did get God of War in June. So what does July have to offer?

Scroll down to see the games coming to PS Plus this month.

Starting in June, there's a new subscription model for PlayStation, with several new tiers depending on how much money you pay. Sony is expanding PS Plus and adding two more subscription tiers: Extra and Premium. The current PS Plus will then be called PS Plus Essentials and will remain exactly as it is now.

Those who upgrade to PS Plus Extra will get 400 PS4 and PS5 games "for free". At the Premium level, retro titles from PS1, PS2, and even PS3 are included. The full list of games for PS Plus Extra and Premium can be found here.

PS Plus Games July 2022 Confirmed

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time

  • User Score: 8.1
  • Critics Score: 8.5

This is a well polished, nostalgic game, and it came out so recently that we're surprised to see it already available for free. For those who haven't played Crash before, it's a cute platform adventure game.

If you played the franchise as a kid, you'll enjoy seeing the same faces again. If you have no history with Crash, then we'll be honest with you, this probably isn't going to blow you away, but it's probably still worth adding to the library to try out one day. It's certainly well-made.

Here's our complete review of Crash Bandicoot 4 (spoiler alert: we were happy with the game as a nostalgic romp for a couple of hours).

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan

  • User Score: 6.5
  • Critics Score: 7.5

This is the first game in an anthology series of horror games. You take control of one or multiple characters (maximum of 5) trapped on board a Ghost Ship, and you have to make the right choices to escape, although there are multiple endings, and many in which you fail. This game is basically an interactive movie, like the modern equivalent of a Choose Your Own Adventure book. If you're into that kind of thing, it's very well done, and if you're not, then don't bother.


  • User Score: 5.3
  • Critics Score: 7

What can we say? The game is free. So it feels unfair to be really critical, or to expect too much. You might get an evening out of it, especially if you can get someone to join you. But don't expect anything more than a very casual, very simplistic arcade shooter. The story is nothing to write home about, and the objectives are repetitive.

Those were your PS Plus games for July. Hopefully you found something in there to enjoy.
