The PlayStation Plus Free Extra and Premium games for July 2023 have been announced, so let’s check them out before they’re available on the service Tuesday 18 July.
As a reminder, PS Plus is a three-tier system. Extra is the medium tier that unlocks a large library of downloadable PS5 and PS4 titles, while Premium is the higher tier that adds classic games and cloud streaming options to a wide selection of the library (Essential’s free offerings for July are already available).
This month features slightly fewer big names than previous ones, but there are still some notable titles, such as Extra’s leading July freebie: It takes two (PS5/PS4).
