To celebrate ten years of PlayStation Plus, Sony is giving subscribers three free PS4 games in July 2020.

PlayStation Plus members can look forward to playing three games next month, all of them excellent.

NBA 2K20 needs little introduction. It’s as good a basketball simulation as you could ever want, even if it does lean too heavily into microtransactions. It plays a great game on the court, and if you can rustle up a few friends, it’s the perfect local multiplayer game.


Next up is Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. This content-packed edition of Crystal Dynamics’ acclaimed 2015 Lara Croft adventure includes additional story content, a co-op mode, and support for PS VR.

Finally, Erica is an outrageously good interactive thriller from  Flavourworks. It’s cinematic, tense, and intriguing, but most of all, it just tells a great story. It’s our pick from July’s PlayStation Plus offerings. All three PS Plus games will be available to download from July 7 – August 3, 2020.
