PlayStation Plus over the past few months has been offering a better mix of AAA and indie games then we have seen in awhile. In February we got LittleBigPlanet 3 and Not A Hero on PS4 while in March we got Tearaway Unfolded and Disc Jam. April took a step back but still offered the brand new first party title Drawn to Death that got a lot of mixed reviews while in May you get the awesome Tales from the Borderlands and great indie titles like Abzu and Alienation. June gave us the critically acclaimed and Game of the Year winner Life is Strange along side the fun co op shooter Killing Floor 2.
So what might we see on PlayStation Plus in July of this year? Let’s think on it and make a few predictions shall we.
1. God of War 3 Remastered
One possible game we could see in the lineup in July is the God of War 3 Remaster Sony released on PS4 a couple years ago. Sony has put a first party title in the PS4 plus lineup several months now this year and this could very well be the next one. E3 will have come and gone by the time the July lineup is announced and with it we will most likely have a lot more details and a release date for the new God of War. Including this remaster will be a good way to further build hype for the next entry.
2. The Order: 1886
Now one of my E3 dreams would be if a sequel to The Order: 1886 got announced. If that were to happen why not throw the original game on PlayStation Plus to give people who aren’t familiar with it a chance to learn the story behind it. Now The Order had it’s issues and probably shouldn’t have been a $60 title when it came out back in 2015 but I do think it’s worth playing. There are issues in the game design as well with a lot of forced slow walking sections and certain weapons only being able to be used in certain parts of the game. I do think the story of the game was pretty good and it set up a lot of things for a possible sequel. If nothing else it’s one of the best looking games on the PlayStation 4 at least.
For those who don’t know Knack is coming back later this year on the PS4 in Knack 2 so why not give every PlayStation plus member what they’ve been asking for by throwing the first game in the lineup. OK I admit I think a lot of people are just wanting Knack on PlayStation Plus as a joke but the game really wasn’t a bad game. It just didn’t do a lot to stand out. Knack 2 seems like it is working to fix all of those complaints with the original and I think there is no better time to finally throw Knack on PlayStation Plus then the month after E3.
4. The Witness
The Witness is another game that I could see ending up on PlayStation Plus soon. The game has been out on PS4 for around a year and a half now and it kind of fits the mold of Sony giving some of the more higher rated indie games away for free. The Witness was on many Game of the Year lists last year for its great puzzle design and beautiful world. The game easily has around 100 or more hours of gameplay and I really hope more people get to check it out soon.
