Sony have unveiled the PlayStation Plus free games for July 2018, and it’s good news for fans of Quantic Dream.
Yes, “fans of Quantic Dream” – seems like an odd statement when you say it aloud, but we’ve said it now. We can’t take it back.
If you’re a fan of beautifully cinematic (but very shallow) games, filled with reams of dialogue and countless branching choices (yet somehow, they don’t really say anything at all) then you probably enjoyed Detroit: Become Human. And if you enjoyed that, then you’ll no doubt also enjoy Heavy Rain, Quantic Dream’s 2010 thriller that tasks four protagonists with catching the origami killer.
The other big ticket item in this month’s PlayStation Plus freebies is Absolver, the heavily customisable martial arts adventure from Sloclap, that includes both PvE and PvP game modes for both online and offline play.
Here’s the full roundup.
PlayStation Plus free games – July 2018
- Heavy Rain
- Rayman 3 HD
- Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess
- Space Overlords
- Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma
Don’t forget that PS Plus members can download Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for free, to celebrate the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. This extra freebie will be available from now until July 11.
