PlayStation Plus Monthly Games for June: God of War, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl

Available starting Tuesday, June 7.

The rollout of the all-new PlayStation Plus is well underway, with Asia’s launch last week and Japan launching starting today! Additional markets will launch this month, and we can’t wait for fans to enjoy the new service.

Today, we are pleased to share the monthly games that will be included in June for PlayStation Plus. From June 7 to July 4, PlayStation Plus members can add God of War (2018), Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl to their game library. When the all-new PlayStation Plus launches in your region, these titles will be available as monthly games to all PlayStation Plus members including those on the PlayStation Plus Essential plan (which includes the same benefits PlayStation Plus members get today).

Let’s take a closer look at the titles.

God of War | PS4

Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest. This staggering reimagining of God of War combines all the hallmarks of the iconic series – epic boss fights, fluid combat, and breathtaking scale – and fuses them with a powerful and moving narrative that re-establishes Kratos’ world. 

Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker | PS4

The Naruto franchise goes 4 vs. 4, featuring team-based gameplay with 8 ninjas fighting simultaneously. Players cooperate as a team of four to compete against other teams online. Graphically, Shinobi Striker is also built from the ground up in a completely new graphic style. Lead your team and fight online to see who the best ninjas are.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl | PS4/PS5

Brawl it out as your favorite Nickelodeon characters in bombastic platform battles. With a power-packed cast of heroes from the Nickelodeon universe, face-off with all-stars from SpongeBob Squarepants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Loud House, Danny Phantom, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, The Wild Thornberrys, Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, and more to determine ultimate animation dominance. With unique move sets and attacks inspired by their personalities, each character has an individual style of play enabling endless action for Nickelodeon’s legion of fans. 

Last chance to download May’s PlayStation Plus games

Be sure to add the following titles to your game library by Monday June 6: FIFA 22, Tribes of Midgard, Curse of the Dead Gods.

  • Really a 4 year old game that almost everyone has played
    And is also on the ps plus collection are you trying to destroy your fanbase

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Yeah maybe relax? PS plus has been really solid even though this month is pretty bad. Everyone has played God of War but it’s also a good sign because it further confirms Ragnarok as a lock for this year. Plus, Sony is more concerned about extra and premium at this point and luckily those tiers are phenomenal looking. If you look at games with gold even though this essentials lineup isn’t good it’s still better than what Microsoft does on gwg and I would assume better months moving forward because this was done just to pump Ragnarok and encourage people to purchase the higher tiers. I don’t think this is the end for essential the way Game pass essentially murdered Games with Gold.

    • @iamtylerdurden1 PS Plus has been really solid?? Hahaha are you having a laugh.

    • I know right! I mean it’s not G.O.W doesn’t have a huge fanbase or anything… OH WAIT, yes it does meaning fans of the original G.O.W series before ps4 would have bought it DAY 1 and everyone else waited for a good deal, plus like you mentioned it on the ps plus collection so anyone who is getting ps5 can wait and get it G.O.W for free then.

    • This is,

      1. The expected marketing push for Ragnarök. (just like them giving ratchet ps4 and hzd were during the pandemic to promote the sequels.)

      2. Good news for those hoping the game is going to hit holiday release as this all but confirms that. I expect we see the official release date later this summer.

      3. “everyone played it” yeah no they didn’t, you have well over 100 mill ps4’s out there and game sales aren’t even at 1/3 attach so people need to relax, obviously most people interested did. But for those that missed it and have any interest in cinematic action they are getting a top tier game on plus, a rarity.

      They everyone bought/played it argument is just false and doesn’t even hold water with games like breath of the wild or mario kart 8 on switch where the attach is the highest in the industry.

    • I they are

    • I’m sure some people haven’t played God of War. Very dramatic to think SONY will destroy their fanbase, that’s a silly assertion-it could give gamers a reason to replay it.

    • Ratchet and Clank was also on the plus collection at was given away last year. Same with HZD. The thing is, those were free to keep, whether you had plus or not. This is the third time they’ve done this, and it’s starting to annoy me now. I wouldn’t have cared if they never did the plus collection.

    • I haven’t play God of War so I’m looking slightly forward to this

    • Remember the playstation plus collection is only for ps5 this gives the PS4 people that don’t have a ps5 yet get God of war

    • So this is the part where I’m supposed to complain that Sony isn’t catering to me and only me?

    • Wait seriously? The other games I don’t care about but I’m fine with, but putting on g.o.w. Is a blatant advertising for ragnarok and nothing else. It seems like a the whole reason it’s here is to get g.o.w. In articles before they launch the game, even though basically everyone is gonna get it once it launches anyway. And it’s already free, if you have ps plus now, just get the game, if you get it next month, why not just get a higher level of the service and get it and a lot more games without the one month limit. Honestly this service is gonna be treated like garbage now that there are higher levels, and people who have it now can’t just upgrade, but they have to pay for the whole year, basically waisting the months that were left of their subscription.

    • It’d probably be less of a problem if the other two games actually qualified as anything remotely decent. Which, they don’t. Yes, almost everyone would have gotten this game by now. If you haven’t, then I don’t know what your deal is. Buy less CoD’s or whatever.

  • Excited for Nickelodeon the most!

  • What about countries where God of war is banned?

  • 3 amazing games , wow Thanks Jim God bless you , and sony too, greatness awaits you !

    • Give over

    • Nothing more i want from you little freaks than making you cry , because all of you must understand you are not only one who has PlayStation plus, and not everyone has ps5 and ps now. So get a life and dont cry. And not everyone has GOW too.Games are sooo great dot com Goodbye!!!

    • You call me a freak with a reply like that? Reported.

    • Then stop comments when i say games are great! I have right and you and no one of you will take that right from me! That’s mine opinion ;) thank you sony games are great you did a great job!

    • You definitely have the right, but i just wish you would use the current slogan, “play has not limits” not the 2013 one.

    • *Play has no limits

    • Every PS5 with a PS Plus account should roll their eyes at a game they already have in the PS+ Collection, this is like giving out Tiny Tina’s Borderlands 2 dlc again. You are double dipping again Sony, terrible month but I supposed they have to make the tier above more appealing.

    • You are one cringe person.

    • Skeelyboy im sticking with greatness awaits :D

    • Does Sony pay you, by any chance?

    • Nope , i just dont have those games, and they are welcome to join collection plus im done with buying games on deals!
      Means i will have each month to play something new! With essential and extra! Deluxe and premium have 0 intrest at that tierrs….

    • God of war is already free for ps plus, they are literally giving us one less game this month than normal. That’s what everyone is mad about, no one cares about the other games.

  • The month the new service starts and you’re triple dipping.. that is very poor. Everyone on PS5 has GOW available since 2020… its also available on PS Now… It should be a bonus game not the main game! Are you really going to be putting games on the essential tier that are available on the higher tiers, i really thought this would have to stop now… But i guess not. I’ve been with Plus and Now since day 1 but I’ve had enough.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      PlayStation Plus has been really good for a long time. This month is not but there are reasons for it. And why would you expect the bottom tier of PlayStation Plus to get better when the new service launches I mean did you not see Games with Gold when Game pass launched? It’s all about extra and premium Now and thank goodness those look phenomenal. I still don’t believe this is the end for PlayStation Plus essential but obviously in the first month they want people to grab the higher tiers and obviously they’re trying to promote the God of War IP with Ragnarok releasing likely September 30th.

      PlayStation Plus has been solid forever. The last month was average and this month is mediocre but overall it’s been really good. From December on we got games like FF7 PS5, Persona Strikers, Ghostrunner PS5, Plague Tale, UFC, Amular, until you fall, saints and sinners, Hitman, Lego DCV, team Sonic racing, Deep Rock PS5, slay the spire, tribes of midgard, bikini bottom, curse of the Dead gods, etc. Say what you want but those are good titles.

    • It should be a bonus game, this is a good callout.

    • @iamtylerdurden1 Sorry but no, Plus has been bad for a long time. You might think they are good months but 4-5 of those games were double dipped from PS Now, most of the others are just mediocre.

  • Another terrible month where I don’t claim a single game. I beat God of War years ago. The other games have zero appeal to me. The monthly free games are so bad anymore, it’s a joke

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Yeah this month means nothing to me but why would you not claim every game it seems like some misguided attempt at bravado but in reality it’s just laughably naive.

      I don’t think PlayStation Plus has been terrible lately barring this month. Ghostrunner PS5, Tribes, Curse, UFC, bikini bottom, Persona Strikers, Lego DC, team Sonic, these aren’t bad games.

    • Word. Sony should only make games you like bro. No one else.

  • God of War being included really is a waste. It’s already on the PS+ collection, it’s on PS+ Extra, and it’s been on PS Now. Pretty sure most everyone who wanted to play it has by now.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      And it sold 20 million units. Clearly this has been done to market the imminent release of Ragnarok this fall.

      Luckily the premium tiers look phenomenal because this is not a great month for PS plus otherwise.

    • Well not not everyone can afford ps Now or PS plus extra

  • Can smell the salt incoming in the comment section

  • Nice I own all 3 games already this month.

    Regard,
    John Earwig

  • PlayStation is all about PC ports and service games now.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Sifu, Forbidden West, Ragnarok, Tchia, Forspoken, Stray all this year with the possibility of FF16, Lil Devil, and more.

      2022 has been and will be a phenomenal year built almost entirely off non-service games with very little PC Port action. None are service games and there are certainly rumors but how often do we really see Sony porting games to PC? It’s been very slow. Just like Xbox fans you all want to live in the future. It’s like you throw away reality and live in the twitterverse. People have literally been crying over PC ports for years yet Sony has been very slow and selective. I have no problem with how they have gone about this process because it’s not even close to day and date and it only yields more money to support even more games. Death stranding for example never would have been greenlit for the sequel if it didn’t hit PC and Returnal largely was a sales bust in terms of raw numbers, I’m happy it’s going to PC because the IP deserves success.

      At some point you just need to let go of this misplaced anger that literally does nothing to hinder your PlayStation experience and will only help support your platform moving forward. PC ports have been handled very tastefully thus far. I understand the fears but I also can’t condemn someone based off mere speculation I have to judge them on their current actions and you can take all of this crybaby PC stuff and pack it up because the thing you should care about is the quality of the platform and that has been consistently great for over a decade. PS5 is obliterating PS4 over the first two years of their respective generations. PS5 exceeded expectations in terms of performance and power and the dual sense and SSD have been Revelations. The launch lineup was amazing and this year is packed with great exclusives as well as a fantastic new service aspect. PS VR2 is right around the corner and looking spectacular. Sony continues to acquire Studios and make aggressive third-party deals to secure content moving forward. I just don’t understand why some people would care more about negative chat room energy and speculation rather than what’s happening IRL. PS5 it’s phenomenal. Grab an Xbox if you are so disappointed because my friend it is not greener. The one thing Xbox fans have hung their hat on for years now is now matched by Sony with PS plus extra and premium. My Xbox Series has been relegated to an indie tester and dust collector at this point. Trade your PS5 and grab a 4-flop series s and see how happy you are. You will finally get to play all of the mediocre games you consistently brag about well God of War Ragnarok, FF16, Spiderman 2, and Wolverine are in your rear view. Go for it. No God of War but you will get to play tunic LOL.

    • @iamtylerdurden1

      Amen Fellow Gamer

      People love to see a king fall and the Playstation brand is still that king.

    • Not yet in a few years they aim for half the business to be that, but good news tin foil wizard hat wearer.

      They are going to still make the Sony tentpole first party single player stuff. More is more, if you don’t like the other stuff or their services don’t buy.

    • @iamtylerdurden1
      It’s naive to assume a Death Stranding sequel (or any other Kojima game) wouldn’t have been greenlit without a PC port, or that Returnal is going to be a financial success because of it. You make it sound like the console gaming industry never managed to thrive without PC ports (while they may very well be what makes it less relevant). I do care and worry about its future and that doesn’t make one a crybaby like you repeatedly assume, in fact your “I don’t care” attitude could be perceived as negligent… Just saying we’re all fans from our own perspective, and I feel constructive criticism serves the cause better than complacent fanboyism (not to say you’re a fanboy or anything, just that criticism isn’t necessarily toxic or harmful and can even be constructive).

    • Also, I’m not a fan of Xbox by any means, but I don’t think we should keep writing them off as ‘harmless’ either in terms of exclusives and appeal. After all, they just started acquiring studios, it’ll be some time until we see the fruits of their labor, it’ll be interesting to compare then. Sony might have years of experience in exclusives, but Microsoft has the cash to make a serious attempt at it. We won’t be as comfortable when Elder Scrolls launches exclusively on a competitive platform, and it won’t be the last beauty we miss out on…

    • And there you have a practical example on the value of exclusives. Xbox suddenly more appealing due to acquiring Bethesda (even if they haven’t done anything with it), Playstation less appealing due to exclusives being available elsewhere and not necessarily needing the console to experience them.. “Timed” exclusivity is just a silly marketing thing that adds no value whatsoever, so getting our ‘exclusives’ two years earlier than on a competitive platform means nothing in the long run.

    • Lastly! Sorry for the wall and going offtopic (interesting topic :p), this blog could really use an edit function to clean things up:)

  • What does this say about Sony… They don’t care. PS5 owners and PS Now subs get the middle finger. This is Sony trying to fill their pockets. For the players? Yea right, for you wallets.

    • Ps now subs are getting treated like kings, worst service to first, free upgrade to premium. Smh what are on about. 🤦‍♂️

  • Clever marketing by Sony, giving people a sniff of what you can get from upgrading to the higher levels of PS+ but sadly by doing this are lowering the value of the content for PS5 users.

    With GOW on the horizon another clever ploy to drum interest but sadly a very disappointing month that could have had huge potential to lure more people into converting to the ps+ model

    • Finally, someone get it.
      Yes, this move is all about to promote the higher tiers of ps+.

      It’s incredible the amount of people on denial regarding the ps collection. It is PS PLUS collection, you already have those titles.
      Well, unless Sony is also teasing the removal of the ps plus collection in the near future (one game has been removed already).

  • x__xWhySoSeri0us

    Bad month for PS5 users. God of War is already in the Plus Collection.

    • they expect us to go with extra or premium.

      plus attach rate on ps5 is already incredibly high, this is just business move.

      It’s easy to just not sub and wait though. They will over sales on the premium service if they start slow for conversion.

    • offer

    • Perhaps try the other games before you write this month off.

  • Hang on, aren’t we supposed to get a PS5 game? Or is that why the Nickelodeon game is labelled as PS4/PS5? It’s not a great start for the new tiered Plus, although I guess it is, if the object is to try and get people to upgrade to the more expensive levels….🙄

  • Gebro_gaming891

    I am looking forward to October when my subscription ends because Essential is too expensive, regarding the most of mid games.

  • The_0neAbove_AIl

    I’m satisfied with this lineup. Another collection to add.

    • You and iamTylerDurden1, are so far most positive in this comments section, let other people enjoy while many of them will be so negative. God bless you both

  • I was expecting nba2k22😢

  • I thought with the new service and the merge between Plus and Now the overlapping will stop, guess I was wrong!

    That’s just stupid and ridiculous!!

  • Ugh, passing on the new tiers and now rethinking my re-up to PS+ altogether.

  • 🤡

  • Why are we getting a game already in the PS Collection, are they getting rid of the PS Collection?

    • It’s a possibility, obviously not immediate, they already removed a title some weeks ago. So, don’t be surprised.

  • I hate this moving games up and down services. GoW was in ps now and the games collection and now ps+. Half the (PS4) games on PS now have been on ps+ in the past. But hey balan wonderworld is in the new ps+ premium, can’t wait for it to come to ps+ regular. For me if you want a service to be feeling premium you need to treat it as such. PS now and ps+ feels like a bargain bin right now.

    • As a subscriber of the service when it launched on PS3, I see no value in going beyond the basic tier. I buy AAA games day 1. I don’t need to stream PS2, PS3, and PS1 games when I have systems or PC that can play them better. Again, where is the motivation for your loyal customers who actually spend money and don’t count on freebies?

    • Opie211, day one buying games means. Each month you will be dissapointed with ps plus ps extra. Thank you for yours Sacrifice. Enjoy in the latest games. While i will enjoying a lot in old games from 2013 – 2022.

  • When will sony learn? And listen to the real gamers. I mean come on guys give us games we want like I don’t know maybe FREAKING FALLOUT 3 GOTY AND FALLOUT NV GOTY JUST LIKE XBOXONE HAS!!! I WOULD GLADLY PAY $120 FOR A GD BUNDLE PACK OR JUST GIVE US THE VANILLA GAME ON PS PLUS NOT PS NOW SO WE CAN PERCHUSE THE DLC’S FOR EACH GAME OR JUST PUT FALLOUT 3 AND NV GOTY EDITIONS ON PS NOW GD IT!

  • I do not like this.. rly Two mindless beat em up games and one game I will get anyway when the new ps plus launches…. Screw this

  • Really Sony surely your taking the micky out your fan base now.
    God of war already a psplus collection game, and all star is a stupid selection as a free game game with exactly the same premise is dropping this month with shaggy and batman others so this a very weak and bad month for players really making me think of dropping my psplus

  • We still have ps plus extra what games will be on 15 June 2022 can’t wait. GREATNESS AWAITS YOU Sony PlayStation.

    • Are you not in the EU Hassan? For us it’s the 24th not 15th

    • Cringe.

    • Yes im in EU im saying sony told us we getting two times per month, monthly games, first every Thursday of month and second in the half of the month , we getting first games for essential second we getting new games for extra too each month , im just saying we dont know what 5 10 new games will be for extra premium

    • I don’t think Europe is getting the extra amount it will just be part of the games we get on release of new ps plus and the new system will start July for middle of the month games added

    • But we in EU still have ps now , let see what sony will do

  • I can finally play God of War!

    • Yea who ever you are God bless you , i finish GOW 3 years ago , but i want you and anyone who did not finish this master piece. It has one of the best story ever.

  • I had a suspicion they would start giving us craptacular games for PS5 for the basic tier once they roled out the new service. Suspicions confirmed.

  • thenthomwaslike

    So happy I ended my ps plus membership. Every month it is just double dipping from the ps plus collection. RIP ps+, you used to be good.

  • lahmacun_343434

    Is this a joke? God of War is already a free for ps plus members. i will sell my PlayStation and buy a xbox.

    • Sell your Playstation and buy Lahmacun Ayran :D

    • @lahmacun_343434

      Goodbye

    • Have fun playing the Games (if you can call them that) with Gold line up this month 🤣

    • Good choice xbox game lineup is a true banger right now

      I really wish i could like playstation but them just double dipping and basically scamming money from people just makes me sick

    • You probably won’t like xbox once you get it. I bought xbox instead of PS5 last year. N I think its rubbish. I don’t like the controller. Can’t record your gameplay more than 15 seconds or so. Can’t upload or stream games to YouTube. You can stream to twitch tho. The only way to record more than 15 seconds gameplay is to have an external storage and record on there.

  • mert_cyberknight

    Are you kidding us? Think you can f00l ps plus members? God of War is already a free accessible game for ps plus members. It is unacceptable for GoW to be included in the June Monthly games.

  • YOOOOO NICK ALL STAR BRAWL:)))))))!!!!!!

  • Another crap month. Unlock online from ps+ already……. ps+ is barely worth it at 50% off

    • So good to see I’m not alone in hating online access combined with PS+:). I was starting to wonder…

  • Sony, you are pathetic. Please remove Jimbo from his position, he is destroying the PDS brand.

  • I cant believe how you spit into face of ps5 buyers… you made this “exclusive” ps+ collection and now is one game of this collection for ps4 subscribers… and on the top of the cake none of these games are for ps5. How you make us to believe in your new ps+ subscribe system? I dont know.

  • I already own 2 of the games I’ve already beat GOW so probably not playing it again and shinobi strikers is so boring it hurts and the brawl stars might be ok if u have friends to play with but other than that this month sucks donkey ass

  • I’m glad I only paid $30 a year for ps plus the last couple of years. The quality of this service has really gone down since PS5 launched. Main reason I’m paying for it is for online multiplayer. Otherwise I would have cancelled it a long time ago.

    • Speak out, people. I’m sure it can’t just be us, who think how much of a pain it is to be stuck on this for online access. You know Jimbo’s Sony only responds to issues when there’s enough of a media buzz or reddit comments surrounding it ;)
      So you’ll miss out on some profits, at least you’ll finally do right by disgruntled gamers who have been stuck with this service since PS4. ><

    • If you stop buying ps+ , maybe they’ll listen. But they’ll have it their way as long as people pay for online.

      There’s always free to play games that don’t require ps+ for online.

  • Bad choices…cmon sony do better

  • Terrible as expected. And I only expect it to get worse now that it’s “essential”. Maybe this’ll turn out to be a blessing in disguise of sorts, so more people get to realize how useless it is to subscribe to this just for online gaming, if that is the case for them as well, and demand for a tier consisting of online only. In my experience the best time to be subbed were the first few months of a new generation, when you don’t own much of the games and the pickings are slightly better. Other than then, I can miss it entirely if it weren’t for online access.

    • You contradict yourself. You said ” how useless it is to subscribe to this just for online gaming” and then go on to say “I can miss it entirely if it weren’t for online access”.

      so which is it? Why does Sony charge? Because they can. I am always interested in the free games. Why? becuase they are free.

    • How so? In both instances I’m saying I want the online access, but not combined with the games service, thus the need for a tier consisting only of online access. You seem to be going off the idea that online and PS+ games are one package (which technically it is)?I’m just saying it shouldn’t be… Otherwise I’m afraid we got mixed up somehow :)

  • Bought the game in the year they released it. Have the game as a PS Plus collection. I also have this game available trough my PSNOW Subscribtion and now you give us the very same game as a monthly PS+ game ? Wow, you really think of us like we are … Maybe we are, because we keep subscribing and paying for a service like this!

  • Individuals complaining? I’m shocked!

    Anyway, this line up is x10 better than certain “Gold Games” line up.

  • This is really a horrible month. Words can’t even describe how bad it is.

  • darkangelgodzill

    Hmmm god of war in June is playstation trying to tell us something

  • The selection is curious 1 game that has a great single player experience and the other two are both 4 player with no single player to really speak of? I also have seen many say this is a marketing push for GoW Ragnarok. If that was the case woulfn’t they do this like August, Sept, Oct? Like just before the game is released. I am assuming November since all signs keep indicating this year ( I am hopeful, but expect a delay).

  • Another poor effort like the new PlayStation and PSP emulators (see John Linneman’s Digital Foundry coverage) which is somehow a premium tier for PS+.

    The sooner PS5 saves can be backed up to USB, without PS+, the better.

  • Terrible month for PS5 users, we already have GoW for free, In addition the other two titles aren’t great either 😩😩. Won’t be upgrading my current ps plus subscription if this is the standard going forward.

  • I think this are the weakest games in a while. God of war is a good game but almost everyone has played it. The other 2 games are weak.

  • Spongebob… Again…

  • Here’s hoping we don’t see another Nickelodeon related game on PS Plus for the rest of 2022 at least. 🙄

  • It’s a good thing the PS Plus Collection for PS5 justified the yearly cost because this is definitely short changing PS5 users by offering only two “new” games. Fortunately for me I bought a yearly PS sub for this year with Xbox rewards, so it cost me nothing. Ironic lol.

    PS Plus has never been a great value and far behind what Xbox was offerign for the same price, so I’m glad it’s being killed off. The new tiers offer at least worthwhile content.
