Sony has confirmed another strong lineup of free video games for PlayStation Plus subscribers in June 2021.
Leading June’s PlayStation Plus titles is Star Wars: Squadrons, the acclaimed sci-fi dogfighting game from EA Motive. It’s a smartly designed space shooter that’s all the better for its modest ambition. The game sets out to do one thing very well and succeeds at doing it. It’s also well worth experiencing in PSVR.
Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown – which was only just confirmed for release this week – is also included with PS Plus in June. The classic fighting game gets an HD upgrade, new online modes, and is a PlayStation console exclusive.
PlayStation 5 owners get an extra treat with the launch day arrival of Operation Tango, the espionage-themed cooperative adventure from Clever Plays.
All in all, it’s another stellar collection of games from Sony. All three titles will be available to download for PlayStation Plus subscribers from June 1, 2021.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
