PlayStation Plus games for June: XCOM 2, Trials Fusion, Squares, Atomic Ninjas, Zombie Drive HD and Ghost Recon Future Soldier make the line up.
Xcom 2 ? That’s surprising.
Amazing! First game was one of my favorites last generation, never got to buy this one because was waiting on a goty edition, and then I just got caught up with every other game
Wow! Never got around to it. Will now!!!
It's currently on sale I'm sure. I nearly bought it. That's kind of a dick move Sony.
Bathyj XCOM 2 is currently $59.99 on PSN in NA. It's literally full price, so unless things are different in Europe i have no clue what you are talking about?

Xcom 2 is a fantastic game. Perhaps it being offered for free relates to the little rumours about another expansion in the horizon. Certainly a more appealing option if everyone has their hands on Xcom 2.
Never got to try xcom2. Had xcom for ps3. Great month for me.
Xcom2 is great, but I'd suggest enjoying it with the War of the Chosen expansion installed. It provides a lot more content (think of the base game expanding in width). It also provides quality of life improvements (base game has a tendency to rush you through a map / which you can adjust with WOC). Either way, this is a win for anyone into these type of games.
Chaosdreams Thank you for the suggestion. Will look into.
I love XCOM, i even have it on VITA. I actually Platinumed The Bureau and felt as though that game was unfairly judged. The Bureau had great combat that played like an early Mass Effect game with a mix of real time or turn based gameplay.
Get everyone who didn’t buy it to own it for free, and once they r hooked...expansion!
Xcom 2 is absolutely terrific. I highly recommend you get the War of the Chosen DLC along with the other add ons to make the game even better.
I have never played any is it super hard? I am bad in general in turn based games Is there an easy or normal setting or is it just one difficulty for all
There is rookie mode and veteran mode aka easy mode and normal mode. But the game is still challenging.
The RNG is pretty brutal, yeah.
cool i will give it a shot thanks
I would not play this on any other mode besides normal. It really is doing a dis-service especially when strategy is key. Having it on easy mode would take the fun out of the game.
Just don't check "iron-man" mode and you''ll be fine.And yes there are multiple difficulties.
definitely a better offering the Smite lol. i’ll give it a go
i know, it’s pretty terrible. My only guess is maybe they are gonna give a couple games out over E3 cause the smite pack is junk
Xbox GwG offered a free 2 play and 1/3 of a 2D side scroller,essentially. It was smart for them to give out the AC Chronicles Collection in thirds. That way they can give 1/3 of it each month, it stretches their dollar. I believe all AC Chronicles have now been offered on GwG. Much smarter than giving the entire collection at once, though a bit cheap.
War of the Chosen is a pretty big expansion isn't it? Seems like I read it was like a whole game. Either way I'm gonna get the expansions when I download Xcom.
It adds so much to the game as well as updated UI. I wouldn't play Xcom 2 without it.
Super ultra meh
Meh ? You know Xcom 2 is pretty fantastic. The game is not a garbage. Of course, if you are not into turn base game of course, then I understand.
I love RPGs but only SRPGs I could get into are Valkria Chronicles,Shining Force and Fire Emblem. XCOM doesn't look like it's for me. So I agree. Meh.
@Segata Well, Xcom series is brutal game. So I understand that.
I have no interest in turn based games, I had enough of that back in the stone age when we had to play with actual people on a physical board sitting at a table.
Xcom 2 is great and so is Ghost Recon.
To be honest, nothing about Xcom or RTS appeals to me in the slightest. On any level. Just nothing. Tried watching an old GT review of Xcom2 just now as a refresher; looked so boring and drab I couldn’t even finish the review. Trials Fusion I’ll give a go. Not a fan of the futuristic maps so I never bought it, but I enjoyed Trials HD and Trials Evolution on 360 quite a bit. For free, I’ll reconsider. Ghost Recon Future Soldier, buddy would dig that one. If he hadn’t sold his PS3 to get a PS4. Less than a year left for PS3 games on PS+ I think?
Xcom isn't RTS.
Pretty much. It's a turn based strategy game,something I never got into except for the recent South Park game which was fun but this looks frustrating & boring like the first one.
All games are more boring to watch than play. Try playing it, what have you got to lose?
XCOM 2 is much more than just turn based gameplay. It features a legitimate story, resource/base management, loot, crafting, and team building and customization. Recruiting agents, customizing them, and leveling them up is my favorite part. XCOM 2 features far more agent customization from purely aesthetic to varied skill trees that enable a uniquely diverse squad exactly how you want them.
You have never played Xcom if you think this is meh at all.
I just picked up X com 2 on steam key from GameFlip last week. Granted I only dropped $5 for it. I still play it PS4 for trophies at least. Picked up Trials Fusion a few years ago, fun game.
This lineup sure beats the heck out of a 2D Assassin's Creed title and a DLC pack for a Free to play game.
Yipee! one month out of twelve PSPlus beats Gold with a slightly (barely) better PS4 lineup. OK, that is an exaggeration but, PSPlus has been dumpy this past year, that is for sure You did seemingly ignore that Microsoft is also providing two BC games (Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed <- love this game & Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues). Ignoring BC capability of the Xbox One I am super excited about Squares for my PSVita (/sarcasm off) Holy crap that game is awesome (ok, /sarcasm is really off now) When was the last time Sony gave us anything worth a grain of salt on for PSVita? Although, I will admit Ghost Recon: Future Soldier for the PS3 looks pretty good. With my PS3 dying a few years ago this game is just a great example of how much I wish the PS4 was capable of PS3 BC. I am fairly envious of people with working PS3. I never played it and I would like to play it but, I am not willing to invest in another PS3 to do it. Oh, one last thing, let us not act all high in mighty about that F2P game add-on, PSPlus gave us a SMITE DLC pack back in December ( a DLC pack that was not even remotely as good as this Xbox SMITE DLC - I suppose for the Xbox that is a good thing if you play SMITE that is.)
"one month out of twelve PSPlus beats Gold with a slightly (barely) better PS4 lineup" That's just bullshit. lol The rest is just xbox fanboy drivel.
One month? LOL you're joking right? PlayStation Plus has been giving AAA game after AAA game every month for like a year now. GWG however has barely given any ever since Game Pass launched last year. In the past 12 months on PS+ we've gotten: Mad Max, Trackmania Turbo, XCOM 2, Beyond: Two Souls, Rayman Legends, MGSV Phantom Pain, Grand Kingdom, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Knack, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Infamous Second Son, Until Dawn, Darksiders 2 Remastered, and Just Cause 3. You've gotten maybe 5 or 6 AAA Xbox One games in the same time frame. Sorry but PS+ has been kicking GWG's butt for over a year now.
You obviously forgot the month we got Bloodborne. That one game alone beats gwg offerings for the whole year lol.
I mean, if you had said that last year... you maybe had an argument. But PS Plus has kicked it up majorly this past year, so you're basically trolling. Plus has crushed the gold games in the past year. I'll only list the pure "PS4" games to keep it short. There are always 2 additional games (for a total of 4) that you can also play on your PS4. So, you can have your old "BC" games, I'll take 4 games from this gen. May Beyond Two Souls Rayman Legends April Mad Max Trackmania Turbo March Bloodborne Ratch and Clank February Knack Rime January Batman Telltale Deux Ex: Mankind Divided December Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition Kung Fu Panda Showdown of Legendary Legends November Until Dawn: Rush of Blood (VR) Worms Battlegrounds Bound October MGS V Amnesia: Collection September inFamouns Second Son Strike Vector EX August Just Cause 3: Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry July 2017 Until Dawn Game of Thrones Telltale

How dumb are you? PS Plus gives us bonus packs for free to play games all the time as just that. A bonus. They never take the place of one of our free games. Microsoft is giving you only three games in June. Everyone can own Smite at any time they want. They never should have replaced one of the free games with a DLC pack. So yes I will act all high and mighty b/c Sony gives those in addition to free games. Please educate yourself.
Yep https://www.gamespot.com/ar... "The free PlayStation Plus games of December have been available for a while now, but starting today, subscribers get access to another freebie: The Smite PlayStation Plus pack on PS4. It comes with a whole bunch of items, including skins, voices, and announcers."
Good lord I was going to add something about this but it seems everyone else already destroyed your blind fanboy post. On topic while these games aren't my thing this is a pretty good month and much better than GwG.
What ever makes sleep better at night ImGumbydammit
Bro plus has been better then gold almost every month this year
LOL! Dude you're on drugs.
what!?? that's AWESOME, Xcom2 alone is enough for me.
Why don't they rename this service to, "Hey, pay for the privilege to use your own internet! And we'll throw in these games that came out years ago, that if you haven't bought on sale yet for 4.99 you probably won't ever play them to finish anyways, even if they ARE free!!!!!!!!!!!"
For me it's more than worth it. I don't even play online, but the games I have gotten this year alone have more than paid for the $40 for the year of Plus.
There's new gamers every single day so that name wouldn't apply to them
Now that is flawless logic. Access to great games you may not have played otherwise free of charge is bad... Oh man you’re not gonna like the constant discounts on games, movies, tv etc
Oh be quiet and move to PC.
They do it for you.. Just for you.
I've thought about buying Xcom 2 at least 25 times, glad I didn't :)
Wow, that's awesome. They have been killing it with PS+ lately. Xcom 2 is great, and Trials is good fun.
Xcom2 alone is enough to warrant the purchase of PSPlus...Damn lucky!
If you liked trials on xbox360 arcade, fusion isnt bad. Has online racing too
Friggen sweet! I was curious about xcom but wasn't sure if it's my type of game, well I guess that's the advantage of having 34 million subscribers you can ramp up your offerings
Cool. Now if only a game came out combining the fending off of aliens while riding a motocross bike...
I still maintain that Days Gone should have went with an alien aesthetic... ah well.
Xcom 2, very nice! Loved the first one.
I don’t know why there so many dislike on YouTube, do I think PS Plus June is perfect ? No, but I do think it’s much better than Xbox Gold Live Line Up.
