  • looking forward to plagues tale😎

  • Black ops 4 hardly has a campaign if you can call it that and its multi-player is dead. Why give us a dead game. Before you completely start screwing everybody on the ps4 at least make the ps5 more available.

  • Man, Thats game the month is terrible

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has 103 trophies , and no way its bad game , thanks once again sonnyyyy!!!!

    • You right it’s not a bad game…it’s a a terrible game hahaha.

    • I think you dont know… What word fun means, only trophy hunters will understand that lol hhhh :D

    • Errm yes it is. And the amount of trophies has nothing to do with how good it is. Half of those are DLC.

    • For me yes, bought ps4 because of trophies. Hunting 4 down one by one

    • You find seeing a rectangle appear in the corner of your screen, and grinding boring tasks to get a higher numbers no one actually cares about “fun”?

      You could just make a second account and send yourself messages from it on a phone all day while adding +1 to a calculator. It’s basically the same effect and you don’t need to buy games.

    • Sorry lady , but you’re so wrong !!! I don’t cheat. First of all i enjoy in story, second of that it forcing u to finish 100% third of that took me a week or two until get platinum or most of trophies, i just like enjoying while you dont !!! You have your own style i have mine, and wonder from which you are what kind of queen or princess youre from, Eartn , Saturn, Jupiter , Uranus or Mars :D , because no way im listening to you ._.

    • You may find that a lot of the trophies will be very hard as the main player base has moved on so go for the Multiplayer kills and so on the moment it goes on plus as it will be kinda dead again in a few weeks

    • Totally agree with you

  • Talk about a terrible month,glad there’s a consensus in the comments it means the PS community ain’t 100% doomed yet.CoD B.O 4 is absolute trash by far the worst CoD,doesn’t even have campaign wish y’all had put Advanced Warfare instead that’s one good for the lineup and WWE well away with that trash too damn.If a Plague Tale was on PS4 great but recycled PS5 version when it can be played in BC yeah no thank you.Worst month of the year so far,not adding any of these to ma library…glad I don’t depend on Plus to play games.

  • After 2 worst month 1 one more fkg month i belive i should not buy ps plus agan ps plus is now only for ps5 owner
    Ps4 used is nothing for sony

  • Is there a any way i should refund my year mamber ship ?

  • Plague tale innocence ps5 version count me in let’s go

  • Activision I’m not adding cod black opps4 to my game library idc activision are absolutely pathetic worst gaming companies hope they go bankrupt

  • Everybody has played BO4 already. Lmao

  • are sony trying to force ppl away!? this is a s**t month again! with no ps5’s n the game offered i may walk to xbox or pc instead

  • It’s a “meh” for me this month bois. 😔
    Looking forward for next month’s lineup.

    subscribed for 12 months because of FF7Re and since then I’ve got Days Gone, Squadrons, BF5, and VF5. And a lot of PS5 titles I can’t play lol but yea it’s been a good run for me, hopefully August lineups are bangers.

    • I meant “looking forward for August’s lineup.”

      I won’t touch July’s game lineup lol I’d probably add a plague tale on my library tho.

  • Too bad I can’t play Plague Tale. Awesome for, the few, PS5 owners though.

    Not impressed with the ps4 games, however. You can do better Sony.

  • I beg of you, please give us some JRPG’S.

    Maybe give to an audience other than FPS and fighting games.

    • In the last 5 years, fighting game fans have gotten a demo of SFV, a cut down feature stripped version of VF5 and if you even want to count this, then whatever this microtransation riddled thing is. So it’s not like there’s been a single full fighting game for PS+ users.

      Still, more JRPGs would be great. Or at least no more survival, sports or walking simulators ever again.

  • That sucks…only reason I was gonna get plus was a plague tail..but since I can’t even get a ps5,,I won’t bother again this month..I really refuse to even get plus until I get a ps5..but who knows when that is..Sony can’t even send me a invite, I been a loyal Sony customer for years..really thinking about going to Microsoft and xbox..

  • A meh month to be honest.

  • Cmon..Sony u can’t send invites for ps5? But u want everyone to pay and own your crap plus service? U should be ashamed. U should atleast be putting out the same games for ps4 and ps5 everymonth…thats slapping your loyal customers in the face who’s been with u for years..I’m seriously thinking about going to Xbox and Microsoft. Another month I will not throw away money..and I was actually thinking about get my plus back, just for Tails plague..I won’t be purchasing plus until I’m able to get a ps5..if ever…I’m planning to go with wich ever console I can get first…that means abandoning sony..so be it..brought it on themselves…

  • Just what we wanted, a dead CoD game and SD Gund….. err Wrestling?

  • Never ever sign into this site but had to just once to say: yeeesh, brutal month. Was hoping for anything interesting on Ps4 but these two titles are a huge NOPE.

  • Is this an out of season April fool’s joke for PS4 users? I can´t get a PS5, and Sony’s message is obviously “do you want a good PS+ experience? Buy a PS5″… Come on Sony, PS4 users are the majority for now, and that’s on you. So, please give us something at least competent.

  • This is a poor month for me cod along with fifa are so generic I’m amazed people buy the same game year in year out. The wrestling game I’ll let my kid play. I have not been able to buy a ps5. So this month sucks. Nevermind cant win every month. Keep up the good work ps.

  • I’m looking forward to A Plague Tale, but honestly this is otherwise the worst lineup in a long LONG time, I didn’t think it could get much worse than last month but this? COD:BO4 is the only game more cartoonishly stupid than the WWE game that you’re giving away. I’d request a refund on my year of PS+ if I could. I just might sell my PS5 to buy an XBox lol at least they care about giving their customers some kind of value for their money.

    • I’ll buy your ps5…lol..seriously tho..I been thinking same thing, get a xbox, and pc down the line…Microsoft giving customers value right now..

  • You guys need to stop double dipping PlayStation Now titles. Battleground is leaving soon but I was going to get PlayStation Now before the game left but now I don’t need to. Black Ops 4 is trash and it would have been nice to get both versions of Plague Tale: Innocence. I also miss the days when we got indies. I know many hated them but I’d rather have 2 indies that around $10 each rather than Black Ops 4.

  • I hate this month

  • Not a fan of wrestling or COD and I don’t own a PS5 yet. Oh well.

  • Again a game already available on PS Now, for those who have both services like me it’s a lack of respect, it’s bad enough to have both and pay full price for both (there should be a joint service), but in addition to paying 60 euros for each one I still suffer from repeating games.

  • wow, how utterly disappointing

    for anyone without a PS5 they get war crimes and ‘rasslin? really? just wow, as a PS+ subscriber since it began this is, by far, the worst month ever

  • very underwhelming, if not disappointing. the only good stuff from PS+ in 2021 so far, was Control and FF7. the rest is mediocre at best, not worth it even for “free”.
    and who cares about Black Ops 4 when most of CoD player base had moved on to Warzone and Cold War long ago? it’s inferior to Black Ops 1&2 anyway.

  • Games of psnow. Renewal off

  • Will bo4 come with the season pass? If not, will it be on sale? The current sales end a few days after these games become free.

  • I am starting to think that PS Plus stands for Practically Sucks Plus because most months practically suck as far as the games that they offer. WWE games are an absolute joke in every way possible. CoD is also a series that makes me want to play personally, and while some people enjoy them I think most people who want to play them pre-order them and therefore they are not games that should be offered. The only game worth playing will cost between $900- $1300 to play because PS5’s are not readily available and are being sold at outrageous prices.

  • I am going to be trophy hunting in Black Ops 4 Zombies. Looking forward to possible hunting simulator to be included in an month’s free game lineup as well!

  • I love these comments, totally hilarious. COD Black Ops 4 is ok, not a fricken great game. It works for my collection because I prefer single player and campaigns. A Plagues Tale is a good game and a nice psn pick. The WWE game looks ridiculous but it’s worth trying out free as I’d never buy it. Overall not bad (2 games I don’t own) but also not good, as the WWE pick is weak. Anyways we’ve been getting good games for most of this year so you can’t win them all.

  • Worthless July games for ps4 users

    I hope for coming month😭😭

  • Sometimes it feels that Sony pushes last gen devs to upgrade their games to PS5 just so they could avoid giving any really PS5-only game, which are still rare… This time its a great game, at least.
    Wont bother with rest 3, however. I doubt anyone still plays online-only, bad user-reviewed COD, which is auto-switches to next installment annually, and WWE and VF… meh, just meh. Come on Sony, you can do better!

  • Nothing for me this month lol. Already bought the WWE game for my kids, and CODBLOPS 4 was a freebie a couple years ago, so I have that already too.

    Maybe next month.

  • Weak. So weak.

  • Activision is dead to me everyone that works there is a joke keep putting micro transactions in you’re games so younger gamers think gambling is ok well it’s absolutely pathetic

  • I can’t wait to add these to my library and not playing them.

  • Like Control, Plague Tale is one that I was already interested in trying last-gen, so the PS5 version will definitely persuade me to play. Not the best PS4 selection but you guys can add the PS5 games and have a library by the time you get the console, so it’s not a total loss…

    • Why pay for a service you can’t use, and not sure if you can use it down the line? Who knows when you’ll able to get a ps5. To me its kinda like gambling with your money. It ain’t worth it.

  • So … a COD game 👎, another fighting game 👎👎, and Plague Tale 👍

  • Out of all the months i wait for july. It gets a game that was overhyped and almost everyone has it and a game i personally (no offense to anyone who has played and liked it) wouldnt want to play. Why wasnt it a better line up this month like come on sony.

  • Terrible games. Already played Plague, CoD doesn’t even have a campaing and won’t even comment that wrestling.

  • Activision you’re a joke company hope you’re getting the message

  • So I guess this is pretty much what this months PS Plus is going to look like.

  • Played WWE Battlegrounds a few months back over a free weekend on Xbox and it was…not good. I had really high hopes it would be similar to WWE All Stars from a generation back but I was sorely mistaken.

  • Wow, an obsolete Call of Duty, a rpg no one’s ever heard of (for good reason), and a halfassed wrestling game.

    Talk about value for our membership.

  • Honestly Sony is just giving up they don’t care anymore that’s why they give us games that are horrible and we already have. Might switch to x box. Also my account was hacked am I got banned for 7 days all the digital games that I bought with my hard-earned money or taking away and locked I think I’m going to stop by and digital that is a complete rip-off I wouldn’t buy a PS5 after seeing how bad they’re going down the drain for what better graphics might as well just get a PC i give up.

  • And not to mention they pull funds from your wallet even after your auto-pay is turned off and they even try to charge you when your account is hacked and banned for PlayStation membership I can’t trust this platform anymore Sony you have failed me and I’ve been with Sony since I was a little kid we appreciate your members
