PlayStation Plus July games lineup & a thank you for 10 years of supporting PS Plus

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, NBA 2K20, and Erica are your games this month.

Hi everyone! Wow, it’s been 10 years since PlayStation Plus was first introduced to the world on June 29, 2010, and we truly want to thank all of you for supporting PS Plus over the past decade. It’s been a memorable journey over the years, bringing gamers together and providing access to compelling content and exclusive discounts for our members. We wouldn’t be here without all of you, so as a thank you, we wanted to make this upcoming monthly games announcement extra special by adding a bonus game to our incredible lineup. 

Here are the games for PS Plus members, available July 7 until August 3.

NBA 2K20

NBA 2K has evolved into much more than a basketball simulation. With its immersive open-world Neighborhood, NBA 2K20 is a platform for gamers and ballers to come together* and create what’s next in basketball culture. Take your skills to the next level, featuring an upgraded motion engine with signature styles, advanced shooting controls, a new dribble size-up system, refined off-ball collisions, and a new read & react defensive game.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration

In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara uncovers an ancient mystery that places her in the crosshairs of a ruthless organization known as Trinity. As she races to find a powerful and sought-after artifact before Trinity, the trail leads to a myth about the Lost City of Kitezh. Lara knows she must reach the Lost City and its hidden secrets before Trinity as she sets out for Siberia on a thrilling expedition.

Erica**

This feature-length cinematic experience merges high-fidelity Hollywood production values with engaging, tactile gameplay. Become Erica, a brave young lady plagued with nightmares of your father’s murder. With the traumatic events that have haunted you as a child dragged back into the light of the present-day vis grisly new clues, it’s up to you to unearth the shocking truth behind this devastating tragedy. Every choice you make influences how the game develops, with multiple endings awaiting you at the finale of the emotional branching narrative.

We’ll be releasing a free PS4 theme later this week to celebrate 10 years of PS Plus. The theme will be available on PS Store for a limited time, so be on the lookout. For those of you who haven’t tried the online multiplayer benefit for PS Plus, we’ll also be hosting a free online multiplayer weekend starting July 4 at 12:01AM through July 5 at 11:59PM in your local time. (Online multiplayer game sold separately. Requires internet connection and PlayStation Network account.)

It’s great to see how much PS Plus has grown over the years – starting with the very first PS Plus game offered, WipeOut HD, to offering more than one thousand games to PS Plus members over the last ten years. As we walk down memory lane, we’ll leave you with a quick snapshot of PS Plus from this past decade.  Thank you again for your continued support and we look forward to celebrating with you!

PS Plus 10th Anniversary

*Internet connection and PlayStation Plus membership required for online multiplayer.

  • Wow, NBA2k to celebrate 10 years. The fact that we pay for this, is disgusting, and the online does not even work properly at times. At leats give us a better Bonus Game, or give us 2, just a year ago you were giving 6 games per month, you take that away, and come to us with months like this one!? Not renewing my membership.

  • Is this a Joke? You celebrate 10 years and put up a basketball game? Tomb raider ok thank you but a basketball game…..with all the great games you could have picked you went with that? I’d rather you pick a game I already owned that I would haven’t any need for over this. This is like celebrating your birthday and getting your cake that has the icing you like but the center is filled with dog poo. Thanks for tomb raider at least you managed to get that.

  • NBA 2K20? Seriously? What made you all think THAT would be a good game for an anniversary?

  • Wow, a free title that usually goes on sale for five bucks. If anything I’m reminded that PS Plus once delivered a stellar lineup of PS4, PS3, and Vita titles along with the occasional VR title. Meanwhile Xbox Gold continues to serve up two forever-to-keep Xbox 360 titles along with two Xbox One titles.

    • Agreed they need to compensate at some point for the fact that PS3 games are no longer being offered I’m sure when the PS5 comes out PS4 will still have PS plus support but then it’s only a matter of time before the PS4 loses its support

    • What ever happened to the BIG Plus sign around our avatar on the PlayStation Blog if we have PS Plus?

  • A 5 year old game, a game that was on sale for £4 last month & a “bonus” that is barely even a game. Why do you hate your customers so much?

    • Exactly, erica sing even a game, nba 2k is a disappointment and tombraider is owned by most people already

  • Meh, about 10% of (mostly Americans) care about or want to play NBA,…when you guys made FIFA free. People whined like children until you have them another game, but then you give us a game that really only Americans give a F about, a very disappointing line up for 10 years. As for Tomb Raider,…I, like most avid gamers have already played it, so I’m not sure who that appeals to either, cause anybody who’s a fan of the series has played it long before now. So yeah it’s clear that not a lot of thought has gone into this lineup.

    • I can see where you’re coming from what’s a basketball is an American only sport is complete ignorance the fact that it’s one of France’s most popular sports behind football

  • For a 10 year anniversary this is just shameful. Putting NBA on sale for a very low price then putting it on plus is just a scum move, it doesn’t help that it is absolutely garbage. Tomb Raider another one that is always on sale, and Erica lol…. It’s your 10th anniversary and you offer 0 exclusives. Absolute joke of a month.

  • I pray these arent the actual games. Your last 2 months have been pathetic and then to cap off a 10 year anniversary with NBA 2k20 and a 5 year old game that’s ok is a disservice to everyone. It’s like the guys at playstation just have games in a hat and just draw names at random. No logic to what they choose. How about picking some of the games that people have suggested,to you know, make customers happy.

  • A Look At PS Plus Through The Years
    “64 GAMES OFFERED during the first year of PS Plus Monthly Games”… How sad is it then that now we are getting 24, almost a third of that amount, a year nowadays…

  • Another great month! Looking forward to Tomb Raider, Erica and that theme!

  • Could be better…….tomg raider is a good game but we probably had the original version as a free download ages ago soo..not exactly anything to get excited over

    • The 20 Year Celebration version of Rise of the Tomb Raider is the only version of the game released on PS4. The Tomb Raider game before it was never free on PS4.

  • So we get:

    Another 1 year old sports game, which nobody who hasn’t got it, really wants.

    A tomb raider game, that has been on sale more times than most people can count.

    And last, but certainly least, an interactive story, that requires you to download an app, for it to work.

    I’m so excited and can hardly wait.

    • Someone’s glass is half empty how about your glass be half full and you now have a sports game that you can play with your boys at least for 20 minutes pretty damn good 3D platformer puzzle game and a Sony exclusive

    • Agree with @theOG

      Im curious about nba I WILL NEVER EVER wil buy it, so…
      TR is an awesome game, but yeah, everyone’s got it…

      there are months and months…

      Also for the 10th, kinda expect something more :(

  • Never heard of Erica but I’ll give it a shot. I have Tomb raider and sports games just aren’t my thing. A little unfortunate for me.

    • It’s unfortunate in general imo, Erica is like an interactive movie and nba 2k is just bad… tomb raider is the only good game on the 10 year.. classic sony

  • What idiot put that age verification on things?
    It starts on today’s date and you have to scroll back month by month.
    That’s almost 600 clicks for me, then when your finger slips it goes back to the start.

    Now I can’t view anything because I am born in the future.

    Sack the moron responsible.

    • If your not of age you shouldn’t be viewing thing’s you shouldn’t be seeing or reading.

      In regards to scrolling and scrolling. Yeah that needs to get fixed. I think a better search on the PlayStation Blog as well as filtering by Year, Month, and day. As well as genres such as Shooters, Console’s, game publishers, and last but not least search by video game studios.

    • Angeljuice I agree. 5 minutes of frantic scrolling just to get pre 2000 (not going all the way down to my DOB, that would take AGES 😀) and for some reason it thinks I am not suitable to watch the trailer. Frustrating and pointless. It should let us scroll by year.

    • Wowsers… either you’re all geezers or you just don’t have any common sense. You don’t have to keep scrolling or tapping on the months. You tap on the year at the top then you scroll to your designated year. Then a few more taps for month and day. Literally takes a few seconds… and don’t call anyone a moron.

  • alot of dissapointment for a 10th year anniversary…

  • There are a enough people hear crying about what free games they get to fill a Joe Biden event. Ya’ll are just absolutely ridiculous in how ungrateful you are. PSPlus should rarely include AAA games that have sold 10s of millions because most of us would have already owned it.

    • they’re not free, they never were free.

      by your logic my truck was free with the purchase of four tires.

    • How about a classic like crash bandit or something? Nba2k20 and some shitty interactive movie are not worth the money, but we have to pay it anyway so we can play multiplayer. So we have a right to complain about Sony’s bs. Especially when they removed ps3 and vita and gave us nothing in return

  • NBA 2k20 !?? Seriously !??

    • Exactly, most would have been happier with fifa 13 ffs. NBA 2k is such a disappointment. Even in terms of sports games

  • Sports games NEVER Is a good choice… NEVER PLAYSTATION I think it is a last year what’s gonna pay for this service…

  • I’ll pick up Tomb Raider and Erica. I don’t play multiplayer games, but kudos for offering a free weekend for those who want it.

  • Can’t please everybody got to mix it up every month.

  • I’m very happy with Rise of the Tomb Raider in the lineup

  • so you took away PS3 and Vita games each month to give us nothing in return, no price drop, no additional PS4 games, still charging a fee to store game saves when it’s free on Xbox, still limited to 100GB when it’s limitless on Xbox. why are we paying you again?

    • It’s always good to match up what Xbox is doing. Yeah it’s not good to charge us for something that other’s get for Free and unlimited storage. Wow. I didn’t know that. Maybe Sony will reevaluate the service when PlayStation 5 comes out. I hope Sony does something great for PlayStation Plus on PS5. 🙏🏻

    • Xbox does not have unlimited store the and it depends on what game you cuz some are high in mb

  • VERY DISAPPOINTED.
    Rise is a good choice yeah but its also sold a lot of copies, so not a real loss there financially
    NBA… really?! A game that is brutally shunned for its Lootbox and Microtransaction madness…. Gambling Simulator 2K20
    Erica…. who the f plays these interactive video stories!?!? this was a thing of the 90s! i rather watch Black Mirror Bandersnatch 100times than play this ones!

    I thought you would do better for the big 10 Year Anniversary but nah… dropping the ball once again…

  • Been a PS+ member since day 1 when all we used to get was a PSN title and a couple PSP minis on the service. Its become so much better since then. NBA 2K isn’t for me but Rise of the Tomb Raider and Erica are great additions.

    Also people in these comments have no idea what they are talking about. You may not like NBA 2K but a TON of people will be happy to get that for free. People here complained when Sonic Forces was on PS+ but as you can see in the picture it was one of the top 5 most claimed PS+ games of all time. Just shows how out of touch people online are.

  • I love that we get free games but with this Corona virus going around I have been played off and am not able to pay for plus anymore so I want you guys to consider letting us play online without ps plus but keep the games if you get it.

  • Disappointed.

    • There’s literally only three people in the comments who enjoy NBA 2k seriously up your game you guys should do a vote or something so then its “for the players” no hate just dissapointment.

  • Now I’m not saying we need Last if Us 2 or Cod modern warfare but we need something better than a 5 year old tombraider a disappointing sport franchise and a game you need an app to play

  • I am now making extra $19k or more every month from home by doing very simple and easy job online from home. I have received exactly $20845 last month from this home job. Join now this job and start making extra cash online by follow

    instruction on the given website……… w­­­­­w­­­­­w.W­­­­­o­­­­­r­k­8­­­­­3.c­­­­­o­m

  • Ahhh,khakis.

  • Ahhh, khakis.

  • Pls playstation change the NBA 2K20 to resident evil 7 or something else because some of the players don’t like that game

  • PLEASE! WE NEED BETTER GAMES!

  • Maybe something like open world or massively multiplayer

  • Guess I can play Tomb Raider again, was really hoping for something really good since it is the 10th anniversary. One more month of nothing for me to enjoy.

  • Always appreciate new games, especially ones I might not personally wanna buy but still try it. So nothing negative to say about the line up. But if you really want to give thanks then give us back ps home for ps5.

  • Well I gues 10 years is a lot a time and I guess I have the right to say something, ,
    If you PlayStation company, can do something about EA will be great, do something or say something to EA please tell them to fix FIFA GANES ! And stop the encrypting on games and put more servers, don’t just use us to make money.

  • Seems to be a lot of ungrateful people here!! Instead of being happy your getting free games your going to look a gift horse in the mouth and be greedy!! Sony doesn’t NEED to give us anything! Sure they might not be the world’s greatest games but they are something they throw us for free to show appreciation to their customers,many people more than likely played and owned these games and many have not do to many people these are welcomed gifts that they can now own and play free of charge, guess a lot of you people were never taught at a early age to be grateful for what you have or were given in life, fortunately I have and am very grateful for Sony and the service they have provided for us,mind you it cost them some good money out of pocket to provide us these kind of services and they don’t have to do it so again thank you Sony,I for one am grateful for these free games and also can’t wait for your groundbreaking ps5 system!!!

    • These games are not “free” and yes they are obliged to give them to you/us. That is like saying that if you pay for games in a shop they do not have to give them to you and you should be grateful if they do. PS Plus started off (and still is) a charged service for a random selection of monthly games. Newer subscribers seem to be under the false impression that we pay for PS Plus just to go online and the games are a bonus/free gift, this is not the case. Online was free when PS+ started. Some months are good and some not so good, it is a gamble. As they have bundled online gaming into the service I feel somewhat compelled to continue subscribing. I already have TR but it could be good for some members. I have absolutely no interest in NBA and the other game is at best a temporary distraction. I agree with most that NBA was a poor offering, they should have picked a game with broader appeal. There are plenty of good indy titles to choose from.

    • Free? Not sure what exactly that means since we all pay for a service and a very bad one at that.

  • Can we start doing games from the 1st of every month??

  • Could have been better for the 10 year milestone, but it could have been a lot worse…

    • Not really, these games suck for a 10 year aniv. Never been a TR fan and don’t play any sports games, ever.

  • I don’t know if Sony is aware that none of us enjoy playing sports games and would rather a more popular games(such as dark souls) instead of shooting and sports games

  • Some of you people need to stop complaining and be more appreciative It could have been worse like last month but I’m actually looking forward to playing NBA 2K20😁👍 rise of the tomb raider plus it has a VR mode that’s a bonus for me 😍 And I always wanted to play Erica I’ve seen many popular YouTubers play that game 😲 And I remember I started paying PS Plus in 2012 😉👍 Just before PS4 was released Maybe from now on Sony needs to give us three free games not just 2😑👎 or better yet give us four free games just like Xbox games with gold And a lot of times they usually have better free games than PS Plus But this time I am not disappointed This is a good selection 😉👍 can’t wait to play them in July 6😁👍

  • I don’t know if Sony is aware that none of us enjoy playing sports games and would rather a more popular games(such as dark souls) instead of shooting and sports games like seriously no one plays sports genres just give us a popular more fantasy or at least something that most of us enjoy.

  • lol this mounth is less then steller tbh seeing how its the 10 yr anversary the plus selection could of been atleast a decent one

    Sure tomb raider is alright but 2k20 is not exacly gona win you subscriptions

  • These are all incredible games especially Rise of the Tomb Raider is my favorite out of the reboot trilogy but their is one problem I already own all these games lol.

  • I’ve been a PlayStation Plus Member since day 1. I missed a over a year’s worth of game’s that I didn’t get added to my library because I was truck driving and out of the country. But I’ve been a Plus Member from day 1. I plan to continue my subscription when moving to the PlayStation 5. I hope game saves sizes has been considered for PS Plus for PS5. I look forward for the continued service and support from PlayStation Plus. I also hope there will be a protection plan that’s going to be offered on the PlayStation Store with a PS Plus discount like for the PS4.

  • staring at my 5 year year plaque….. waiting for 10 year…. ;) hint hint.

  • Awesome lineup! Pity I bought Rise of the Tomb Raider last year for $15 from a friend. But definitely will be checking out Erica as it’s been on my radar for a while. Please dish out a bonus game every month, or every second month? I miss those indie titles we used to get when the PS4 launched.

  • Could you please release the playstation now games at the same time.
    Information on what these games are going to be are not structured at all. Sometimes there’s a blog (once during my sub) then we know a week before or not at all, the latter being the common denominator. Be nice if NOW had the same service as PS plus.

  • I’m a little perplexed with Tomb Raider. Wasn’t it a timed xbox exclusive? The TR entry which dissed its origins on Playstation? Symbolically I’m not sure it deserves to be there as a PS+ 10th anniversary game.

    • Tomb Raider was a PC, Sega Saturn and Playstation game at launch.

      I’m not sure there’s actually ever been an exclusive Playstation Tomb Raider. Or exclusive to anything else for that matter (even the mobile games got ported).
