Another big month for PS4 with a brand new game coming to PS+ as a free release on its launch date as well as a Saints Row spinoff that will surely be a very fun option for mayhem. Ready to learn more about this month’s full lineup?
PlayStation Plus Free PS4 Games Lineup July 2016
Furi Regular Price: $24.99; Free for PS Plus members
Fight your way free in our frenzied all-boss fighter, and discover what’s waiting behind the last gate. Furi is all about the tension of one-on-one fights against deadly adversaries. It’s an intense, ultra-responsive game with a unique mix of fast-paced sword fighting and dual-stick shooting. Each of the formidable guardians —designed by Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki— has a unique and surprising combat style that requires focus and skill to defeat. The high-energy action gets a boost from an explosive soundtrack composed by electro musicians including Carpenter Brut.
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell Regular Price: $19.99; Free for PS Plus members
After the antics of Saints Row IV, many fans asked what we could do next… the answer? Shoot The Devil in the face. Play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie as you tear apart Hell in a quest to save the Boss’ soul. Historical icons, old friends, older enemies, a talking gun, a full length musical number, and a whole lot of other shenanigans all await you in this open world standalone expansion playground.
• Soar through the air on fallen angel’s wings, summon devilish imps to attack your foes, and surround yourself in a divine aura that forces all to worship you.
• Wage war in the 5 unique districts of hell any way you want: rescue allies, pick a fight with nightmarish Arch-Dukes, rob Satan’s soul processing plants… dozens of options await
• Featuring arsenal of underworld themed arms: fire exploding frogs at enemies, shoot swarms of locusts, and even deal destruction from afterlife’s most comfortable (and lethal) armchair.
As always, for PS+ users who don’t have a PS4 yet, be sure to log in at the PSN Webstore to get the games added to your collection so that you can download them once you do get one.
Also, don’t forget that with the PS4 3.0 Firmware update that came out, there is a fancy new PS+ Icon to help you find the PS+ games to download for the month as well as any sales for PS+ subscribers!
Two big games this month. Early buzz and reviews for Furi have been super positive (ours goes live later today!) making it a great PS+ addition. It’s giving me Shadows of the Colusses vibes, which I am more than happy with. I really haven’t played much from the Saints Row series, but I will definitly give Gat out of Hell a try. Sounds like it’s a slick game with a more humorous take on the GTA formula.
