PS Plus and Games With Gold for June 2018: Free games compared
June's line-up of free games for PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold subscribers offers 10 games at a combined value of $483.50.
As we approach the peak of 2018, we remember some of the best free games of 2018: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Superhot, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Mad Max and Bloodborne just to name a few. Man, what a year... If, like me, you missed the chance to download some of those top-shelf games for free, you're probably holding out hope for more quality gems to drop in the latter half of the year.
Well, June's free games for PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold have been announced and the question is: Are we sitting pretty? Or is it all downhill from here? Ultimately, that depends on your tastes.
Strategy and die-roll die-hards will be x-static about PlayStation 4's headline game XCOM 2. While its other free game Trials: Fusion can be enjoyed by just about anyone in short, sharp bursts. The line-up on PlayStation's legacy consoles paints a different picture, with the so-so Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier and Zombie Driver HD Complete Edition and more from the unheard of indie pile on VITA with Squares and Atomic Ninjas.
Xbox owners don't get anything quite as impressive as XCOM 2 but it does offer more quality titles across the board with Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia and SMITE: Gold Bundle on Xbox One and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and LEGO Indiana Jones 2 on Xbox 360.
