As has become tradition, the next batch of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers has leaked early (via Dealabs). The user known as billbil-kun has been spot on with PS Plus leaks for nearly a year at this point, so it’s pretty safe to say that July’s leak will prove to be true. July 2022’s PS Plus lineup is said to include Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, and Arcadegeddon. The trio of new PlayStation Plus free games will be available starting July 5 for PS4 and PS5 users. This is one of the better PS Plus lineups of the year, so PlayStation Plus subscribers have a couple of fun games to look forward to trying in the near future.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is the best-known of the bunch. Originally released in late 2020, Crash Bandicoot 4 brought back the iconic mascot in style. It retains the level-based formula of the early Crash games while adding modern flourishes for a smoother overall experience. Crash 4 is fast-paced platforming fun that requires nimble fingers and quick wits. While it’s a great family-friendly game, it is more challenging than most AAA platformers on the market today. Both the PS4 and PS5 versions will be free, so PlayStation 5 owners can get performance improvements.
Decidedly not kid-friendly, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is the first entry in Supermassive Games’ horror anthology series. Similar to the studio’s other hits like The Quarry and Until Dawn, Man of Medan is a narrative-based adventure with an emphasis on player choice to alter the course of the story. Man of Medan follows five friends who go on a trip together. What could go wrong?
