PS Plus Free Games for July Headlined by Heavy Rain and Absolver


Sony has revealed the free games PlayStation Plus subscribers will have a chance to tackle next month. Following a decent June headlined by XCOM 2 and Trials Fusion, July will serve up the groundbreaking, yet divisive Heavy Rain, and the Devolver-Digital-published action-RPG Absolver. Check out a trailer for the new additions, below.

Battlefield 2042 Open Beta Won’t Require PS Plus, But You Will Need Xbox Live Gold

Here’s Sony’s full rundown of July’s free PS Plus games:

Heavy Rain

Experience the gripping psychological thriller that is filled with innumerable twists and turns. Spanning four days, hunt a murderer known only as the Origami Killer – named after the calling card they leave behind at crime scenes. Four characters, each following their own leads and with their own motives, must take part in a desperate attempt to prevent the killer from claiming a new victim. How this story ends is entirely up to you.


Go behind the mask of this customizable and fluid martial arts-focused action game. Players can build combinations of strikes, parries, and feints to make their own unique fighting style, all while exploring a dynamic world with dedicated PvP and PvE areas.

This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:

  • Rayman 3 HD, PS3
  • Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess, PS3
  • Space Overlords, PS Vita
  • Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma, PS Vita

Hardly a blow away month, but not terrible either. Heavy Rain isn’t for everybody, but I’ve always had a certain affection for it. Also, don’t overlook the PS3 and Vita games this month – Deception IV and Zero Time Dilemma are both definitely worth your time. Sony is also offering a deal on their PlayStation Now subscription service – 3 months for only $29.99 (usually, it would $44.99). Not a bad deal for access to over 650 PS4, PS3, and PS2 games.
