Sony has announced its free PlayStation Plus games for June for PS4 and PS5 users. The Star Wars and Virtua Fighter franchises joined Operation: Tango for next-gen console owners.
In the latest bumper crop of titles, PS Plus members will be able to download and keep the Ariel dogfighting game Star Wars: Squadron, which came out in 2020. This is for both PS4 and PS5.
EA Motive’s game is set during the legendary Battle of Endor, which plays on screen in Return of the Jedi. You will be able to join Vanguard Squadron of the Rebel Alliance or Titan Squadron of the Galactic Empire in a compelling solo campaign.
The beloved X-Wing and TIE Fighter Craft are a series of new characters to destroy hell. We gave the game 4 stars out of 5 and praised the PlayStation VR mode, accessible yet challenging gameplay, and a healthy dose of Star Wars Easter eggs.
Our reviewer concluded: “Star Wars: Squadron is the dogfighting experience we’ve been waiting for in the iconic sci-fi universe we’ve been waiting for, and the game is extremely passionate about creating something that giants of the genre and hesitant newcomers have minimal constraints. Can enjoy with. “
Elsewhere in this month’s offerings is the remaster of Sega’s classic Mano-a-Mano combat game Virtua Fighter 5, which was originally launched on the PS3. It is going to be available for the whole of June and July.
Both of those games will be available to PS4 and PS5 owners, but for the lucky next generation of gamers, there is Operation: Tango. Again, this is not exactly a blockbuster for PS5 owners, but looking at the PS5 library is not enough yet, we cannot blame Sony for not delivering too many great PS5 games at this point.
In a blog post announcing the line-up, Sony states: “Team up to save the world in this cooperative detective adventure, challenging you and a friend around the world in a high-tech near-future world Join online to complete dangerous missions.
“Combine skill sets from different perspectives – playing either a hacker or an agent – to overcome odd challenges, working together only with your voice to connect you. Teamwork is important, and communication is important!”
