You can get Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain with your PlayStation Plus membership in October. There’s also the Amnesia collection, which has both The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs, two games I’m too scared to play.
The Ys series has been setting the bar for combat and music in action role-playing games since 1987. The latest game, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, is no different, but it does have something more recent entries have lacked—a memorable story.
We already have more awesome games than we can possibly play, so why not add a bunch more? Here’s all the big games coming out this summer.
Infamous: Second Son has always looked pretty cool but I never got around to it, so I’m really excited it’s in this month’s PS Plus lineup.

Square Enix’s long-running Itadaki Street series (basically a take on Monopoly) has a new game coming out to celebrate the 30th anniversaries of both Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest (though the latter’s 30th was actually last year). Its trailer sure is something.
I’m excited to see Just Cause 3 on August’s PS Plus lineup, since I always meant to check it out. There’s also Downwell for the Vita with crossbuy on PS4, bringing my total ways to play Downwell to three, which is not nearly enough.
Until Dawn and Game of Thrones headline PlayStation Plus’ games lineup this month. July also sees some add-ons in addition to the usual roster of games. As always, these games are only free if you have a PlayStation Plus membership.
The fourth installment of WayForward Technologies’ Shantae series launches today, and the half-genie’s latest shape-shifting platforming adventure looks as good as it plays.
In 2015 Vanillaware revealed 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the latest very pretty game from Dragon’s Crown and Odin Sphere director George Kamitani. Today Atlus announced it will be localizing and releasing the PS4/Vita game in the West. The game’s Japanese release date is still TBA, so expect it sometime after that.
If you missed Life is Strange, PlayStation Plus has you covered with June’s lineup. You’ll also get Killing Floor 2 for PS4. As ever, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.

The best Digimon game in ages is getting a follow-up, because that’s how successful games work. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker’s Memory is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan later this year, with a Western release in early 2018.
Salt and Sanctuary is still coming to the Vita. At least according to a recent blog post from the developer, Ska Studios, who wrote yesterday that the team is hoping for the Vita version to arrive sometime in March. The game originally released in March of last year as a totally excellent 2D Souls-like.
