Sony reveals more than a dozen new games for PS Plus this July

Final Fantasy VII Remake Integrade and a swathe of Assassin's Creed games are the highlights of the incoming PS Plus games this month.

We saw Sony finish rolling out its new PlayStation Plus service last month. The new three-tier subscription platform might not be the Xbox Game Pass competitor that most people expected, but it's also turning into something that might be just as good if not better. Sony still refuses to bring in first-party titles on day one, but the July update to the PS Plus library is a great start.

If you didn't think that Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade was worth buying separately over the "base" game, now's your chance to give it a try.

Starting on July 19, Extra and Premium tier subscribers of the new PlayStation Plus will enjoy the following games:

We've known for a while that PS Plus subscribers will get Stray, but we were not expecting such many titles. The PS Plus Game Catalog just grew by a whopping 19 games and the best part is that they're not exactly throwaway freebies either. Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is a $70 value alone.

Some are complaining that PS Plus has too many Assassin's Creed games, but is that really an issue?

If we take a closer look at the new additions, a recurring theme with the incoming games is that they are all previous installments of games with upcoming sequels. The FF7 Crisis Core remaster will launch later this year followed by Final Fantasy VII Rebirth on December 2023.

We're also expecting a new Assassins' Creed game announcement in September. Finally, the Saints Row reboot will come out next month. More than half of the 19 new games will serve as a primer for what's coming to the PS4 and the PS5 soon.

The only disappointing part is the Premium/Deluxe freebies. No Heroes Allowed and LocoRoco Midnight Carnival aren't the most memorable PSP games, but they're a good start.

If nothing else, we're hoping that Sony has more planned for its most expensive subscription service.

Gat Out of Hell is one of the more underrated games from the previous console generation.

Speaking of Sony, the huge PS Plus update on July 19 comes just after the service welcomed Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, among others, to all PS Plus subscribers earlier this month.
