Sony confirms the free video games available to PlayStation Plus subscribers in July 2021.
This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup continues the service’s run of big-name games. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the headline act and is available to PS4 and PS5 users. In case you have forgotten, CODBLOPS4 is the one without a full-fledged single-player campaign. It does, however, feature a generous roster of multiplayer maps, the fan-favourite Zombies mode, and the Blackout battle-royale mode, which remains popular some two and a half years after release.
PS Plus subscribers can also grab WWE 2K Battlegrounds, the horrible cartoon-like wrestling game from Saber Interactive. The least said about it, the better.
Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown is a much more appealing prospect for combat enthusiasts. It remains available on PS Plus until August.
Finally, the upgraded next-gen edition of A Plague Tale: Innocence is available for PS5 owners. Asobo Studio’s action-adventure survival game has become a minor classic due to its distinctive setting and first-class rat avoidance stealth mechanics.
All three titles will be available to download for PlayStation Plus members from July 6, 2021.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
