The Drop

Rocket-powered cars playing soccer? Yes please! Prepare for fast-paced competition, insane trick shots, and robust car customization. Rocket League is coming to PS4 this week, and it’s free for PS Plus members!

In Rocket League, players drive onto huge arenas for a fast-paced, richly strategic game of soccer. The catch: everyone is driving a car that that can jump, flip, and spin through the air in a dazzling display of rocket-powered wizardry. Rocket League features up to four-player splitscreen, eight-player online, a thorough customization system, and even a special appearance by Sweet Tooth, exclusive to the PS4 version. And if that didn’t sound good enough, it’s free for PS Plus members!

Speaking of free PS Plus games, let’s shine a light on Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved, which hits PS Vita this week. The iconic shooter series blasts onto Vita with hundreds of challenges, multiplayer support, and sizzling gameplay. Good luck getting that high score!

For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

  • Enjoy the Drop!

  • Hey Ryan, can you please list the PlayStation Now games added each week in future? Thanks! Beyond!

    • Hey Sora! Thanks for the tip! This post is just for new games coming to the platform, not PS Now. However, we do aim to have a big monthly post for PS Now games, and actually that’s coming soon for July!


    • Great idea!

  • Geometry wars I want it!

  • Hey Mr Clements,

    I don’t suppose someone at Sony could ping Square about the audio and RNG problem on Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remastered for PS4?

    It’s been bugged since Day One.

    • Hello Kaze, appreciate the note. Have you reached out to them via customer support, or even on Facebook/Twitter? That falls a little outside my domain. I’ll send a note to my friends over there this week in the meantime to learn more.

    • I have sent a message to their customer service once now and gotten no response. I haven’t tried Twitter. I’ll hit that up next, but it is a little frustrating and it would be nice at the very least if Square would make a note that they are handling it some where like the PS Blog or their own community manager. I have a copy of FFX|X-2 HD that I find unplayable due to the bugs.

  • Ohh I’ve played a little Pneuma on x1, really awesome game with easy trophies…gonna have to double dip lol. BUT DAT FREE ROCKET LEAGUE DOH!!!!!! Fell in love during the beta =)

    • Yeah, I’m pumped that they get to lead the charge on Plus this month. Fantastic win.

    • Agreed! Many thanks to you guys for getting that one in there! Ah can’t wait to have a Sweet Tooth rocket car!

  • Hi Clements, as usual thanks for letting us know some of the games we can look forward to this week.

    I did notice one possible typo: “For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, ready on.”

    Oh I’m ready! :-)

    • Hello Paul! Happy Sunday. ^_^

      I’m glad you’re ready. So am I. Also, fixed that typo. Thank you for actually reading the text. I am crying tears of joy!

  • I guess I need to board the Rocket League hype train?

  • Will Rocket League be free at midnight for corresponding timenzones?

    • Hey Flatliner, I checked and unfortunately a specific launch time isn’t listed in my documents. Sorry! Sit tight.

  • First time commenter long time reader. Rocket league looks like fun any idea how big the download is. Thanks for all the good info about upcoming games

    • Hey, thank you so much for reading! Early versions of the game that I was checking out clocked in at approximately 3 gigs or less (updates included), but this is completely subject to change. You should reach out to Psyonix for official stats!


  • I’m going to assume that the 5 year anniversary of PlayStation Plus has been completely ignored for the US? I’m incredibly surprised by this seeing as how Europe and Japan had stuff for it.

    • Of course. SCEA is, by far, the worst of the Sony branches at handling anything Playstation related. I’m hoping there is an eventual restructure of some kind to take care of the fact that no one even bothers with getting good sales over here anymore, much less simply acknowledging and rewarding long term PS+ customers. To see just how poorly we’re treated, just look at the current Big in Japan sale for Europe. I can’t recall the last time we were treated that well.

    • Are you sure? I’m monitoring both and i assure you the Japan Sale on psn eu has very horrible prices… psn usa had a japan sale on the golden week. I bought Atelier Logy at 15$ – The Witcher and Hundred Knight 9$ – DW Gundam at 20$ at april.. Disgaea D2 was at 10$ and Ar nosurge 24$… The psn eu had double the prices… Believe me, even Atelier Ayesha was lower two years ago (my first digital game on ps3). :P

  • I still can’t believe that Rocket League is free for PS Plus. I enjoyed the beta so much a fantastic game Gooaal

  • Much appreciated Mr. C

  • Great update Clements, looking forward to Rocket League. Any idea if it’ll be free when it launches at midnight?


    • Hey there! I’m not sure when exactly it’s launching, so stay tuned! Thanks for the note!

  • Dear Ryan

    Do you have any information about the launch of Deemo: ~The Last recital ~ for Ps vita? It was released two weeks ago in Asian regions..

  • Is Broforce ever going to come out on PS4?

  • Hey Ryan, any word on when the Masters of the Galaxy DLC will release for Helldivers?

  • That’s a whole lotta nuthin. Hopefully we can get a decent flash sale for a change.

  • Rocket League looks pretty fun. Wonder if there is a single player career mode?

    No PS3 releases this week? Kind of surprised.

  • I can’t wait to play Rocket League! I’m knee deep in Driveclub, and am really finding it hard to pry myself away from this gem, but I will have to make time for RL as well!

  • It’s good to see a PS2 game coming to PS4. Wait, Toro wasn’t on the PS2? O.o

  • Hey Ryan any news on APB RELOADED release date on ps4. It was suppose to come out in June

  • SkullGirls 2nd Encore on PS4! Now the PS Vita countdown begins!!!

    Really hope we don’t have to wait 6 weeks to get the go-go edition?

  • Hello and good morning my comment is the I don’t see no free playstation 3 games today or am I wrong?

  • Any idea on when MotoGP 15 (PS4) will be available in the US?

  • Rocket League must be really good
    Also more ps1 games where?

  • Hey that isn’t Toro the cat stupid copyrighting

  • For those of you sick and tired of this company and the way sony treats its mobile gamers and the Vita (aka “legacy device”), meet SMACH Zero, the device that will bring 1000+ Steam games on day one including, but not limited to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Portal 2 on the go:

    Great things come for those who wait. More to be revealed at Gamescom (availability and price).

    • Looks like something I would be interested in. Thanks for sharing the info! I love my Vita more than my PS4 or my PS3 because I get more time with it due to my career and traveling.

  • Ryan have you heard anything about when life is strange episode 4 is coming out?

  • RE Revelations 2 for Vita?

  • I read somewhere that King’s Field II is coming to PSN. Hopefully that’s true. And Kuon next, please, for anybody reading this with the power to make it happen!

  • Why do you guys keep allowing Xbox Live Indie quality games like Wander, Bread Club Brawlers, and Toro onto the Playstation Store? It makes the Playstation Brand look bad. Quality control is a thing.

    • So you want less games?

    • @KazeEternal
      KazeEternal you should improve your reading comprehension. He means there should a better scale requirement in general, so there could be more actual GAMES, not indie garbage.

    • @Viewtiful_Gene that’s why it’s called self-publishing. Just look at the App Store. Comparing it to XLA is a moot point. I do agree that there should be a scale requirement though, otherwise they should’ve just renamed PS Mobile and put those kinds of titles there.

    • It’s becoming another App Store / Google Play. Too many indie trashes in the store. When I browse the store to buy some game I just have to say screw it! I’ll just close the store and don’t buy anything at all because it’s like I’m finding something in a huge trash can full of garbage.

  • Skullgirls on Vita when? Come on, I need more fighting games on my Vita!

  • Is it me or the PS staff disabled the rating system for every article in a damage control move, because they saw that the discontent of the gamers has become increasingly latent and visible when they noticed how poorly were rated a lot of the posts?

  • Rocket League looks fun, is there 4 player split-screen?

  • #WherearethenewPSoneclassics

    Instead of making a hashtaged list of 20 PSone games, I’m going to start a new trend with that being where are the new PSone classics & my currently #1 most requested PSone game on the Playstation Store. And I’m gonna do this every week until the Store gets a new PSone classic.
















    • You do realize that Sony doesn’t have the rights to ANY of those titles, right? You’re much better off bugging the publishers of each of those games.

  • I’m glad to see the PlayStation 4 doing so well. I have a couple of suggestions since no one asked. ;)

    1. More arcade and console classics, but keep the price at $5 or less. I miss seeing games like the Gradius Collection, R-Type, Strider (original), Final Fight, Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, Shinobi, Shadow Dancer (arcade), OutRun, Space Harrier, AfterBurner, and so on…)

    2. Update the PS4 snapshot format so we have the option to save as PNG (uncompressed photo format). JPG is far too sloppy for displaying modern games. It adds a ton of visual artifacts and makes the game screens look pretty bad in most cases.
    If you need another reason… Microsoft added this to the Xbox One and it makes the games on their system look superior in screen shots. Batman Arkham Knight, a beautiful game in person, looks terrible in jpg screenshots. It, and other games deserve better!!

  • Such bad drops. To be honest i am so sick of the ps1 quality Indie games. PS plus isnt even worth it anymore.

  • Glad I got in on Skullgirls 2nd before it hit…though I still don’t have a PS4. Now, if they threw in a PS Vita theme when that version Cross-launches…~

  • Hey guys these are the games I’m hoping to see go on a good sale: Smash Cars Extreme Bundle, Orc Attack Flatulent Rebellion, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Dirt 3, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, Madagascar 3, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Ratchet and Clank Full Frontal Assault and All 4 One, Dante’s Inferno and other Ultimate Editions on sale please

  • Bullfighting? Seriously?

    A game about slowly torturing animals to death? Poking bulls with small, sharp sticks until they die? This is what you offer us? You’re really going to allow this onto your system at all?

    What’s next? A game about factory farming? Stabbing doggies in the neck? Why stop at bulls? There’s got to be a lot of super-macho ways to slowly, horribly torture innocent animals to death. How about ‘Kitten Strangler HD’ – that’s got to be a great idea. Get the people who made ‘Toro’ on it.

    You know, there are some human traditions that really shouldn’t be allowed into the 21st century, and I would say torturing your food before you slaughter it is a big one.

    I am disappointed in you, Sony.

    • I’m with @Giniko. A Bullfighting game seems in very poor taste. It seems like an appalling sport.

    • I agree that it’s a disgusting sport, but it’s just a video game. I’m sure no bulls were harmed because of its development. Might as well request that all shooters stop being made, because shooting people for fun in real life is a terrible thing.

    • What about the yearly COD and Assassins Creed games where you actually kill PEOPLE? Why not complain to Rockstar about the “torture” scene in GTAV where you actually torture a PERSON, why not complain to Bethesda for having all of the above including cannibalism? If you get offended that easily, then maybe video games aren’t for you.

  • Could you please make Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection PS4 dynamic theme available to everyone soon?!?! I know you get it with the pre-order on PS Store, but I really want to buy the disc version and be able to buy the theme separately.

  • Hey Ryan is there anyway that we could get the old sales tables back. The current system is pretty bad. I liked the old way where it listed current price, sales price, and Ps Plus price. Made it easy to read and find what I was interested in. This current system makes finding anything more difficult and as such I haven’t picked up anything since the switch over.

  • It’s so annoying because Asian users don’t even get Rocket League. Thanks Sony. I’m definitely switching over to Xbox now. At least they got Black Flag.

  • Please bring Nier, Fallout Shelter, Okami, Ico, Shadow of Colossus to Vita.

  • IndieStation at its peak.

    maybe it’s time to move on to other platform that has real games to offer.

  • Nothing for me this week… but for those who haven’t played or don’t own Geometry Wars 3… great, great game.

  • the first bullfighting simulator WHO asked for a Bullfighting simulator in the first place

  • GuardianSentineI

    I just created this account and got a new 12 month sub to ps plus. When does the new lineup become available? Is it region based or at just one time for all regions? :) thanks
