Sony reveals the three games that will be part of the free PlayStation Plus games for July 2022, including a brand new, day one release.
Over the past month, Sony has made some significant changes to its PlayStation Plus subscription service by introducing three brand new tiers for users to choose from: PS Plus Essential, PS Plus Extra, and PS Plus Premium. Regardless of what level fans sign up for, they’re all entitled to the free games that Sony gives away every month. This includes the free PlayStation Plus games for July 2022, which have now been officially confirmed.
The free PS Plus games for July 2022 were leaked ahead of time, but now fans have official confirmation of which games to expect with next month’s offering, available from Tuesday, July 5 to August 1. The free PS Plus games for July 2022 have been headlined by Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, with both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game available. Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is the latest installment in the popular Crash Bandicoot platform series and received critical acclaim at the time of its original release in 2020.
Crash Bandicoot 4 also includes The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, a co-op horror game where player choice determines what happens in the story and the fate of the various playable characters. Man of Medan is the first entry in The Dark Pictures Anthology, a series of similar cinematic horror titles all developed by Supermassive Games, the studio behind the recently released The Quarry.

And finally, Arcadegeddon is rounding out the free PS Plus games for July 2022, with both the PS4 and PS5 versions available. What really makes Arcadegeddon stand out as a free PS Plus title is the fact that it’s a brand new day one release. Arcadegeddon has been available on PC in early access for a while now, but is now making the jump to full release, and it’s doing so as part of the PlayStation Plus lineup.
For those who may not be familiar with the game, Arcadegeddon is an online co-op shooter with both PvE and PvP elements. It was developed by IllFonic, a studio best known for its asymmetric multiplayer titles such as Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, and Arcadegeddon will all be available for PS Plus subscribers to claim starting July 5, but in the meantime, fans still have time to grab the free June PS Plus games to claim 2022. The free PS Plus games for June 2022 are God of War, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.
