PlayStation Plus users will get their hands on three free games this June: Star Wars: Squadrons, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown and Operation: Tango. All three games will be available for download to PS Plus subscribers starting June 1. While Operation: Tango will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive, the other two titles will be available to PlayStation 4 users. Starting next week, you can add the free games to your library and download them later at your convenience, provided whether you have an active PS Plus subscription.
Sony announced in its Blog that while all three free PS Plus games will be available from June 1, Star Wars: Squadron and Operation: Tango will be available to be added to the library until July 5. Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, on the other hand, will be available until August 2. Here’s a look at the three games:
Star Wars: Squadron
Star Wars: Squadron puts you in the cockpit of the franchise’s iconic ships. You can choose to be on the New Republic side and zoom into an X-Wing or Y-Wing fighter. However, if you choose to be on the Empire’s side, you can take out the Rebel forces on your fast TIE Fighter or TIE Interceptor. The class-based first-person space combat title allows players to participate in multiplayer deathmatch or squad sessions. It has a single player campaign, but Star Wars: Squadron is best enjoyed with friends. It should be noted that the game is also available on Xbox Game Pass and EA Play.
Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown
If the recent Mortal Kombat movie made you swear completely from the game for the next few months, you can try your martial arts skills in the remastered Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown. Making its digital debut exclusively on PlayStation 4, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown will take you back to the days of classic arcade fighters where you had to strike the right balance between button shuffling and honed skills to decimate your opponent. You will have almost two months to add Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown to your collection. If you haven’t played any Virtua Fighter title before, we strongly recommend that you start with this.
This PS5 exclusive will take advantage of the built-in mic in the PS5 DualSense controller, as Operation: Tango is essentially a cooperative adventure that will allow two players to team up and communicate constantly (via mics) to “ complete dangerous missions to worldwide. globe in a world close to high technology. The game will only use the player’s voices to connect, so communication is key.
PS Plus subscribers will still have until May 31 to claim May’s free games – Battlefield V, Stranded Deep, and Wreckfest. Eager shoppers can also check out the Days of Play sale which is now live with enticing discounts on major titles like Spider-Man: Miles Morales (Review), Demon’s Souls, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Review), and more.
PlayStation Plus subscriptions are available in India at Rs. 499 for one month, Rs. 1,199 for three months and Rs. 2,999 for 12 months.
