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.

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

  • This seems like a decent choice of games so happy with it. However I’m not happy with the EA access offer of 79p for the month finishing a day early. It was meant to run until the 29th i.e. today. However it is no longer on the store. Xbox still have it on offer as it should be. It’s not a major problem I know but disappointing the advertised offer date has not been stuck to.

  • Thank you for 10 wonderful years. I cannot think of a better value than what PS Plus has offered over the years – keep up the great work!

    Regarding the game selection: I love that there’s something for everyone here.
    NBA 2K20 may not be for me, but I know many people who would be thrilled with that game.
    I would not have purchased Erica, so I love that I can try it out here.

    One of the games that I got via PS Plus was Burly Men At Sea, and I adored it! The kids loved helping me make choices as I read to them – felt like a fun storybook that we all participated in…I would not have had that exposure if it wasn’t for PS Plus. Thank you for making it easy to play a broad range of game types.

  • Stop censoring Japanese devs you racists

  • Nobody wants nba, I already have that game and I can tell you it’s absolutely garbage. Please change the games to something a little newer or games that everyone wants but can’t get/afford. Plus I do like the bonus games and you should do that for every month, if we don’t like the 2 games in ps plus already, we can get a bonus game. But please change the games bc everyone already has those two games and they’re not that good. Please think ab it if you see this comment

  • This is so awesome but can you get my PS4 to get rid of the name faddyrhombud 906 matter how many times I changed it it still won’t work so please something cool

  • NBA is mainly a US (buy not limited to) audience base. You confirmed that with your sales quote. Look at the sales of NBA in the rest of world, now where as near.

    Argument for it coming to PS Plus could be that it’s something that most of the world don’t have, why would that be?

    Because one it’s not appealing to outside US audience and more so because this NBA is nothing but gambling simulator. People don’t want that.

    Considering this is a highlight event, you’d think that they would make a lot more effort for the one off time. Hell I would have had 10 games for PS + 10 year. (If it’s too costly, let people pick 3 out of the 10) rather than the cookie cutter design for such an “amazing feat”.

  • I don’t want to be one of those people, but I wish at least they gave the newest Tomb Raider game. I mean this one is like 4-5 years old. NBA is pretty much owned by people who buy it yearly and the great majority, I would imagine, just don’t care. I guess I’ll take a look at Erica.

    Last year with Detroit I felt it was a better bundle, even though I had it already. And I am not complaining because I have this Tomb Raider game, I usually have most what is on offer and I am interested in but for a 10 year anniversary, I would have expected a bit more.

  • First of all I tried to watch a video and had to put in my birth day but can’t type it in have to scroll through each month individually that’s bogus secondly these free games are games no one would even pay for let alone download them for free get with the picture Sony no one wants these lame and terrible games

  • Was going through my 1900+ download list for PS3 the other day, and I found some downloads for Qore, which was the precursor to PS+. It was a subscription that gave you a monthly digital/video magazine, along with free games, themes, etc.

    Was not subscribed from the very beginning (missed maybe the first month or two), but stayed subscribed all the way to the point at which it changed to PS+.

  • TR its a great game (old, is the one of 2015) the rest… ill pass. There are months and months, either way some of the game you will ave it, cant avoid that.

    But Sony should put a liiiiltle more effort on new games. at least yr old… and more INDIES PLEASE. my 2 cts.

  • This is the worst lineup. No one plays a basketball game, also last year sony for the first time ever pulled a game they were offering on ps plus and it was Pes 2019 because NA players were unhappy now they give us NBA which apart from USA no one in the entire world plays
    This is cleare favoritism

    • They should pull this game too! Its a 10 year celebration of plus. So is the message here that THEY are celebrating stealing our money for a service that was originally ON the competition? Cuz thats what I’m getting for the message.

  • PlayStation 2k20 insane never bought but sure as hell gonna download it when it comes out for free also thank you for making GTA5 for free when Ps5 launches you guys are awesome

    • Nobody will be play gta online when cyberpunk 2077 comes out. Gta V is a last gen game now gonna be 2 gens old. Its pretty dumb to rerelease it again honestly. Wheres gta vi??? Nowhere cuz shark cards have made R* lazy.

    • @LichesNglitches

      Not everyone is interested in Cyberpunk, and what are you even talking about, they are not even the same style games. One is an open world, modern era action game, other is an open world futuristic RPG.

  • New exclusive skin for fortnite soon?

  • Another underwhelming lineup. I already own tomb raider, bought it on sale years ago. But 2k20, really? It might as well be a gotcha mobile game. 2KMicrotransaction the video game. Nobody wants that garbage.

  • If you didn’t force us to pay to play online I wouldn’t even sub. Seriously depending on the PS5 price we might see a PS3 launch repeat

  • This would be an average month at best but for celebrating an anniversary? That’s like taking your spouse out for some McDonalds. I mean, it’s alright and you’ll get full but really… couldn’t you do better?

  • Came here for the hatred of having NBA2K20, stayed for all the angry comments.

  • Dang that is disappointing. I really don’t understand the people who hate on everyone who doesn’t like the games for the month. We PAY for the service. I don’t mind a every other month being a dud since I know Sony is not catering to me, however I have not wanted to play any of the ps+ games for quite a while.

  • Erica looks interesting.

    Tomb Raider was picked up in the myriad of sales, good if you’ve not gotten it.

    I’m a big nba2k fan. This years game was OK at best. Really requires purchases to not be annoying. If you want to multiplayer in the street mode, by now you’ll be hugely underlevelled, and will be judged for it. If you want a career, be prepared to have an NBA player who inexplicably misses 80% of his open layups. The story is better this year, so career feels better for it… But the hit the MyGM modes and MyTeam single player modes first to get enough VC to stop your career player being pants.

    This was free on xbox game pass, and they handily also have you two free booster packs, one full of VC and career perks, and another with VC and MyTeam cards. Helped you catch up and improved the game loads… Looks like PS users will be stuck grinding though, so I’ll skip, despite not having it on PS4 yet.

    • £6 I paid for tomb raider. Within the last 3 months you could pick up all these games for less than £13 in total

  • They really saying this is an “incredible line up”???? With a yearly sports title that has gambling mtx in it and a TR game that isn’t even the latest one, also a random game nobody has heard of??? I’m not even sure why I resubbed honestly other than to play online… you think 10 year celebration would be fire. Nope.

  • Guacamole

  • So I’m actually pretty stoked and honestly even if you don’t play sports games. (I myself could care less for any of them.) There is still plenty of play time here. I haven’t gotten to play any of the new Tomb Raiders so this will be pretty legit and create your ending are usually a lot more in depth depending on the ending(s) you’re looking for.

  • Lool… I had “Erica” on my wishlist for a very long time. And two weeks ago I bought it together with the “Late Shift”

    I should wait a bit more.

  • Thank goodness it’s only 1 bad game this time (its 2k if you didnt know)

  • So many crybabies it’s $35 a year clown ass losers.

  • Disappointing month, the only good game in this line-up is Rise of the Tomb Raider, which I already bought and completed.
    Enjoy it those who didn’t have it.

  • Personally this is a bust for me the new tomb raider game I dont enjoy as much as the old ones (I played the demo not to my liking) and I don’t play sports games at all and story games aren’t my thing either, all 3 games don’t appeal to me but I guess I can be disappointed two months in a row just hopefully not a 3rd

    (this is my opinion not saying that it sucks for everyone)

  • Know what’s worse than people complaining about the free games each month? People acting all high and mighty because people dare to complain about a service they pay for. If you pay for something, it’s perfectly acceptable to complain about it if you’re not happy. Get off your high horses. And not everyone who’s complaining is “crying about it”, y’know? Some major wankers in this thread. You know who you are.

  • Sony gave gotten complacent!

    They don’t care about their customers and the free games have turned in to a box ticking exercise. Why else would Europe get a second rate basketball game.

    Hopefully Microsoft do better this time and claw back some gamers.

  • Wow, what a disappointment. The reddit speculation was better and made more sense. Crash N Sane Trilogy since we are getting Crash 4 and Resident Evil 7 because of Village. The only worthwhile game here is Tomb Raider and at that its been on sale numerous times for less than $10.

  • I’m looking forward to playing Erica, that looks pretty cool. ROTR is awesome, but I have it for ps3 and ps4 already (how could you not rebuy it, the thing’s constantly on sale for 5 bucks). Still cool for ppl who haven’t played it, especially since Shadow is on Now atm. I’m not into sports games, but this one seems like a pretty decent get for ppl who are. All said and done though, I’m excited to play the 10 dollar psn game lol.

  • Well, besides NBA everything else is good. Would switch NBA for Horizon, RE or pretty much any other game on the Greatest Hits line up.

    Almost hit the mark for a nice 10 anniversary celebration. Almost…

  • I remember when we used to get multiple free games, exclusive betas and new sales every Tuesday. It was awesome! People still managed to find something to complain about and where did it get us?! TWO games a MONTH and HAVING to purchase it to play online. Can you PLEASE just have a little attitude of gratitude and hush before we end up with even less?

  • What a way to celebrate 10 years of “service”. A basketball themed casino.

    I will definitely not renew this next month.

  • NBA games are pretty good for sports games — but we already have a very good NBA game in our library.

    There were a couple instances where you folks would let us vote on one of the ps plus games. It helped us feel involved in the decision.

    I’d like PSNow and PS Plus to have a merge&discount option. I’d go for it!

    Congrats on 10 years!

  • I’ve been wanting 2k20 and love the tomb raider series . Excellent choices this month in my opinion! Thanks sony ! Keep up the good work !🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂 HAPPY 10th.
    People are way too greedy take what you get or just don’t subscribe to ps plus !
    Just don’t get people now days ! Sony doesn’t owe you anything so just get over it !😞

  • PlayStation customer service is trash. I never get any help with anything. Its a waste of my time and energy. I will not be purchasing any more PlayStation or Sony products.

  • This is hugely disappointing, we were all expecting Resident Evil 7 and Horizon. Perhaps 4 games instead of two for the ten year anniversary, and we only get this?

    • I think they’re going to hold some sort of special event. Don’t judge too harshly just yet.

  • not interested in any of those games at all…
    … but congratulations on 10 years, and here’s to another 10+ more..

  • 10 years, wow.
    I still remember how it began, 12 AAA games who could be downloaded for a year and every month a wonderful collection of six AAA games and fun little indy titles. I played so many games I otherwise never would (be able to) buy, good times. It’s a shame the service is a shadow from it’s former self.

  • Personally not impressed. I’m not a fan of sports games, that tomb raider wasn’t all that fun. The other one looks pretty bad.
    If anyone likes the look of them or is looking forward to this month then cool, for me though not a good month.
    Remember when psplus was good? Back on the ps3, now that they demand you have it to play online the quality of the free games just went down.
    Thankfully I have one month left of psplus and I don’t think I will be re subscribing.

  • Dang it, I already have all 3 of these

  • This is garbage, you’re giving a game away that is free for anyone who has ea access in addition to it just being sold at a super cheap discount. So now PlayStation is in the shade business of trying to nickel and dime users just before offering then the same content free. Yeah this will be my last year with a ps plus account the gaming industry as a whole is garbage now and PlayStation is trying to set that heap on fire with moves like this. I wouldn’t be proud of this announcement if I had to put my name on it

  • Is this a joke? Nba2k20 is designed with a free to play model. Its all about slot machines and lootboxes.
    This isnt a gift to sony fans. Its a gift to those greedy creators.

  • I like this format. You should use it when you announce the games being released for the week. Every time.

  • I will never support gatcha games in AAA games. Not that I would have downloaded nba2k20 anyway.

  • I mean Tomb Raider is a good game. I’m guessing most people have already played it. Wonder if they cross reference games users have played when evaluating ps plus AAA titles. Not really into most sports games. Any fun to casually pick up or only enjoyable if you are really into the nba? There have been some good months, but right now I’m enjoying the free AAA epic games I get every week on PC(without needing a subscription) as well as FF 7 remake I loaned out for free from the local library.

  • Wait, so 10yrs celebrating the players and you give us old rubbish games that nearly everyone has played or has no interest in playing? Seriously?

    Thanks for insulting the players instead.

    What a joke.

  • Really not amused with this month’s selection of games, dont play NBA, already played Tomb Raider and would never play the other one (cant be bothered to even remember its name). If you’re giving out games for an anniversary, why not the original version of Final Fantasy 7 as the remake was released not long ago and games that aren’t all over PSNOW? (And before anyone says I only want FF7, I’ve brought it twice, once on PS3 and again on PS4, so it’s just a suggestion)
