  • Didn’t we get a CoD not long ago…

    Do we really need another??

    I mean, you could probably just change the hue on the screen and pretend your playing a new CoD every day… 😶

  • ANOTHER CALL OF DUTY? Fine whatever…

    Fall Guys might a laugh. I’ll give that a go. And it’s by Devolver and i like them

  • So excited for Fall Guys! Was planning on picking that up, so thanks Plus!

  • How many fps have you given us this year already? We had a month of two fps if I’m not mistaken. Not to mention anyone who liked MW2 has already played it. So who really is going to play this?

    • It wasn’t 2 FPS, as Battlefront is a Third person game, but yes, it was pretty samey.

      Still waiting for an RPG (an actual RPG, not an action game with stats) or a fighting game. But Sony really don’t care about variety, with anything. How many of their first party games are third person action adventures with light stealth and sad stories?

      Still expecting Sony to give out the last 2 PS4 walking simulators they haven’t given on Plus before anything else though.. 😁

    • There’s been plenty of variety this year with PS+ though. From Tomb Raider, to Cities Skylines, to Goat Simulator, to The Sims, To Shadow of The Colossus.

      Of the 18 games so far this year(August included) there were:
      4 Third Person Action Adventure
      3 FPS
      2 Simulation
      1 City Builder
      1 Third Person Shooter
      1 Racing Game
      1 3D platformer
      1 Sport Game
      1 FMV
      1 VR Game
      1 Goat Simulator
      1 whatever the heck Fall Guys is.

      So in 9 months we’ve gotten 12 different genres of games.

    • 8* months

    • Can’t really count “VR game” as a genre as that’s just another FPS. Plus there’s a few others that would just be “simulator” or “sports” and there’s a big crossover between some of those genres (TPS and TP AA).

      So it’s more like 5 to 7 genres in 8 months.

    • it’s been only one genre, it’s called garbage

    • I’m going to play it. Lol

    • You really are the princess of misery.

    • Me, for example.

    • @d-_-bSoFabulous Fall Guys is obviously a third person action adventure battle royale 3d platforming simulator.

    • I’m going to play it, I didn’t buy it, but now that it’s free, I’ll play it.

    • I am going to guess a lot of people are going to play it.

    • I’m not into to call of duty but only played it because it was free. I agree about call of duty not being a good choice not just because a different game in the series was free two months ago but it’s the type of game that if you wanted it you already have it. thats how most shooters are. you know what to expect from call of duty and most shooting games and if you really wanted them you already have them i also don’t like the idea of online only games being given out on plus either. each month i’m hopeful that we will be given better games on plus but each month they keep on getting worse. why can’t they give us games like nier, tales games or ni no kuni as they are good games that not a lot of people have already. we also should be getting some rpg games on plus as we haven’t gotten anything like that on plus in a while. please don’t give us any more sports games, racing games, walking simulators, interactive movies or sim games on plus anymore. february has been the only good plus month lately and the last good month before that was when we got sonic mania and borderlands in june last year. i’m not expecting the latest aaa games on plus but i expect better quality games then what we have been given on plus.

  • I really liked Modern Warfare 2 back in the day. It was very good, so I’m happy to replay this remaster.

    And I’m really excited for Fall Guys. I’m surprised seen this on PS+ so soon.

  • Was going to buy Fall Guys so that’s a nice surprise. Another COD game goodbye hard drive.

  • Good month for me, don’t have either and was interested in both. Modern Warfare Remastered was fab, looking forward to getting back to Soap, Price & co.

    • Same for me. I have never bought a single COD game, but I actually enjoy the campaigns. They’re a stupid, fun 6-10 hours of over-the-top bro-dude mindless enjoyment. I wouldn’t pay $60 for any of them, but I’ll gladly take them as the free games of the month.
      And Fall Guys is just going to be fun on a bun.

  • I would have bought Fall Guys anyway, but it is a pleasant surprise. Waiting for it ever since it was announced. Now only a week to go.

  • Such a good month. I knew Fall Guys would be on PS+. This is about to be the next Rocket League. I hope their servers are prepared.

    • Bruh, Rocket League is going Free to play in August, too, so I wouldn’t count on that. They said the same thing about a few other games in the last few years and nothing has caught on like RL yet.

    • Decent options

    • No..it isn’t. Maybe the next Gang Beasts. Hyperbole much?

    • @StupidRooster Fall Guys has been putting up huge beta numbers so unlike those other games it already has a ton of hype behind it. Battle royale games are also one of the biggest things right now. This game is going to do very well.

  • Bad month again. Sony you could do better every month but not trying

  • Soooooo, another Call of Duty game, but not the full game, just the campaign that literally nobody plays, and then some other game that nobody has ever heard about? Mmmkay. Yeah, folks are more excited about Rocket League going free to play in August and rightfully so. Haven’t had a decent game choice in PS Plus for quite a while.

    • Well, guess I’m literally nobody then. I love playing campaigns. Rich storyline, unchallenging realistic game modes. Its not for everyone though, some people can’t handle the challenge.

    • Plenty of people have heard of Fall Guys. It had more viewers on Twitch the other day than even Fortnite did. Classic attitude here of someone who thinks b/c a game doesn’t appeal to them it doesn’t appeal to anyone.

    • Rise of the Tomb Raider
      Uncharted 4
      CoD WWII (FULL GAME)
      Nathan Drake Collection
      Journey

      These aren’t decent games?

    • Journey and the Uncharted Collection weren’t recent Plus games. They were store freebies.

      The rest doesn’t amount to much if you’re not interested in them.

    • You must’ve been living under a rock to not have heard about Fall Guys, the technical test was huge like Mercenary09 said

      But keeping being true to your name. See how that works out fot you

      WeirdChamp

    • The rest of the games don’t amount to much if you’re not interested in them? You mean like literally every game ever? Duh. You guys whine every month that the selection is garbage. I truly question your tastes in video games if there is literally nothing you can enjoy unless its exactly the games you want.

    • Funny, this remaster only comes with the campaign.. they didnt launch it with multi-player.. so what do you want Sony to do? Go beat on Activisions door and demand multi-player for them because they are putting it on PS PLUS for free? It was only $19.99 anyway… why you are acting like Spoiled child is beyond me…

  • OMG!!! I’m so excited for Fall Guys! Great month :D

  • So happy about Fall Guys! I was going to buy it anyway, so that’s great news Thanks a lot for making it happen!

  • All these war games on PS Plus is getting old now. There are other genres you know besides shooters like Puzzlers, platflormers, RPGs JRPGs, VN’s ever think of making the list each month a bit more diverse?

  • Nice early announcement for Plus. Could we get the same treatment for Now please?

  • Another awful month. Seriously another Cod game are you having a laugh! Even worse that it has 0 reply value… And fall guys.. yea no thanks, absolute joke of a month.

  • Meh another COD game. :(

  • wow, okay also 19.99 refunded to whom who JUST BOUGHT COD

  • Good month once again, loved mw2 when it came out, cant wait to play it again and beat it all over again.

    Fall guys looks kinds fortniteish, but looks interesting to try. Just finished completion of tomb raider, so Ive got room for more to come.

  • Wasn´t the MW2 Campain a DLC for Modern Warfare 2019? Do you have to buy COD:MW to play the DLC?

    That would be even worse than that gambling simulator for July.

  • Is this some kind of joke? Another CoD?

  • I’m very happy now! 😀👍

  • Another COD and whatever Fall Guys is, the trailer makes me sick. Whatever, I’ll just buy Demon’s Tilt and look forward to December when my PS+ sub finally runs out.

  • If we download mw2 do we get the pack from modern warfate the new one aswell or no

  • Ugh another COD? When are they gonna make God of War free?

  • Ok the CoD game is a smack in the face or at least a dirty look to gamers but the other game …the trailer gave me MXC vibes so I’m looking forward to that one

  • Awesome. I haven’t played it yet but absolutely loved it back in the day. Can’t wait to play it on PS4 this time. Thank you Sony!

  • Please separate the online multiplayer component from ps+ that was introduced with ps4. Either make it free or $10 per year. I don’t want these games. PS NOW is a much, much better deal than ps+ and makes it redundant.

    • Remember that Sony don’t really have online games, so don’t actually provide any servers for any titles (and when they do, they usually close them down, like Gravity Rush 2 and Driveclub). So actually have no reason to charge for online games.

      They basically just added force online to force people into paying for Plus. At that point they knew they could make the games rubbish and we’d be stuck paying anyway. They occasionally throw in a decent/ok one (usually once every 3 months) so people think it will get better.

    • I’ve been on the fence about NOW . It’s it worth the price of admission?

    • @WatchMe_Senpai

      If you buy a lot of games then it might not. But check out what’s available. There are many good games and more are added each month.

      Something that still hasn’t reached everybody: The ps4 games can be downloaded and don’t need to be streamed. Also, all ps now games, even the downloaded ones can be played online without ps+. If it doesn’t work right away: Log out, then log back in.

  • bro i personally love this month cuz i have not played mordern warfare 2 so i am excited dont know why there is no multiplayer but fall guys im so excited to play it loved the vids on it

  • bro i personally love this month cuz i have not played mordern warfare 2 so i am excited dont know why there is no multiplayer but fall guys im so excited to play it loved the vids on it thanks playstation

  • Around 6 months without renew PS Plus. I can´t believe that games. I was subscribed since 2015 but now Its better Game Pass on PC.

    Greetings

  • This is amazing!! Great job!

  • Would be nice to get a decent rpg heck I would even settle for Catherine at least that would be something unique it’s been on sale god knows how many times

  • Frantics instead of COD2 for Russia, thank you very much Sony!

  • I played MW2 on the PS3, might as well replay it, still disappointed with this month. Hoping to get the 10€ for subscribing to Plus for over 7 years now.

  • Thanks for giving us a release day game free really like that. Also the remaster of mw2 is nice will definently play it to bring back some memories. Wish it had multiplayer this was my favorite cod multiplayer ever.

  • Absolute trash. If I didn’t HAVE to have PS+ in order to play multiplayer, I’d have canceled years ago. Like 1 month a year has great games, the rest are like this. Pathetic.

  • Super excited Fall Guys is one of the PS Plus games.
    Can’t wait to play that goofy game.

  • I know you can’t please everyone with ps plus but feel like most of these months lately have been a disappointment. I don’t really do multiplayer so its mostly for the “free” games at this point but I find myself wishing I had spent the money on ps now instead but even the additions to that were disappointing. I actually wish i didn’t sell the xbox one i had now so I had could still have access to game pass. Sony needs to step up their game.

  • What is up with the quality of psplus this year? Trash sales. No good addons or addon deals. And only 5 decent titles so far and we are going into august. I just hope the rest of the year isnt this bad. Because this is another garbage month.

  • The CoD title = install>play>delete

    But Fall Guys alone makes this month amazing I was planning on buying it on release so this is such a pleasant surprise thanks Playstation! <3

  • Is this some sort of a joke?? More cod???? We had cod ww2, cod remastered and now mw2 remastered…. Come on Sony seriously!!!

  • Don’t sleep on Fall Guys it’s a gr8 time w friends 😉

  • I miss when PS+ was consistently good, on PS3.

  • not saying these are bad choices or games but i don’t care for military shooters at all , and fall guys looks fine for what it is but just isn’t up my alley. honestly in months like this i wish we had the option to pause our sub like humble bundle. i mean i literally only keep my ps+ for old ps+ games that i MIGHT play one day and the multiplayer which was an ass move to charge for after it always being free on ps3 that once again i almost never use cause i don’t play multiplayer that often and on the rare occasion i do i wana be able to. ( yes i know i’m the weird one compared to alot of ppl). i could just start buying month to month cause it would make more sense for me but the buy and forget it for the yr is both easier and cheaper if we have a good month.

  • Not overly happy with this selection the needs to be more VR games. Or adventure games. Strategy games. Puzzle games. Why does it always seem to be running and shooting in fighting. Some of us don’t really get into those I know some people do. They should have one game that is targeted towards people who like those types and then one game targeted towards the people that don’t like those types that way everybody’s covered. Moments like this when neither of the games are in my wheelhouse given I have such a large wheelhouse I feel kind of left out!

    • Oh yeah, the fact that you have a VR does not mean that it is so popular that deserves a full-fledged place of monthly game. it is unlikely that even 10% of PS4 users have VR

    • After they’ve removed PS3 and PS Vita monthly games AND increased the price, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect a VR game every month if they are serious about supporting it. I’m not a fan of FPS and there have been a few months that I’d have classed as very good IF I hadn’t already played the game that I was interested in (not necessarily vtheir fault). Disappointingly the most gameplay that I’ve had out of a free game in the last six months was the Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game and that was FREE ON EVERY PLATFORM. Interested to see what Fall Guys is like to play but I’m not holding my breath or rushing to renew my subscription.
      Too many simulators, too many shooters.

    • Problem isn’t just is the amount of VR owners is very, very low (less than 5% of PS4 owners, if you believe Sony’s likely inflated figures (Sony has a habit of stretching the truth about sales to make things seem more popular, however retailers sales charts rarely reflect it at all)), but VR doesn’t really have many proper games.

      People probably don’t want more shovelware, and you’d run out of “premium” titles very quickly.

      I guess in November/December there will be 4 games again, maybe, with the PS5 arriving. Though they’ll probably forget they raised the price before removing PS3/Vita games and raise it again knowing them.

    • I get your point about not wanting any old dross on VR but anything would be a start. Maybe one every other month. We played Island Time. It was short and cheap but fun. Moss was good, Astrobot was awesome. “Buy PSVR and get a free monthly game” could be a selling point, as long as it’s not shooter every month…

  • Takeshi’s Castle style in a ps4 game count me in! 😂 😂

  • Well I hoped for No Man’s Sky or Subnautica or Horizon Complete Edition (like when offering Detroit when it went multiplatform).
    That is fine anyway.

    • Hope…
      Is the first step on the road to disappointment…
      Detroit was good, Horizon was fantastic but I couldn’t wait for it to come to Plus as a monthly game so I played it when it came out. Subnautica and No Man’s Sky are both in my backlog, they look more interesting than anything we’ve had in recent months.
