A fresh lineup of free games are coming to PlayStation Plus subscribers in June, and the two games being offered for PlayStation 4 couldn't be more different.
One is NBA 2K16. Going free just in time for the NBA Finals, the latest entry in the popular basketball franchise should please plenty of fans who can't get enough hoops in their lives. It helps that the game is also one of the most well-received sport titles in recent memory. It currently sits at a Metacritic score of 87, thanks to the title's wealth of content. A robust, story-driven single-player mode and extensive online features, NBA 2K16 looks to have truly raised the bar for sport-based video games.
June's other free PS4 game is Gone Home, a critically-acclaimed indie game from one of the key developers behind the Bioshock franchise. Far from the content-heavy, endlessly replayable nature of NBA 2K16, Gone Home is a short, story-driven game. Played from the first-person perspective, players arrive at the unoccupied home of their parents after returning from a trip to Europe. Players can explore the house in their absence, slowly piecing together the various events that have transpired while they've been away.
Either way, PS4 players are getting two critically-acclaimed titles to enjoy in June. Don't have a PS4? No reason to fret, because Sony is giving away free games for PlayStation 3 and PS Plus as well. PS3 users can grab Echochrome and Siren: Blood Curse (episodes 1 to 12) free of charge. Echochrome is a 3D perspective-based puzzle game that utilizes the Move controller, while Siren: Blood Curse is an episodic horror title made popular by YouTube celebrity PewDiePie.
On the Vita, gamers can download Little Deviants and God of War: Chains of Olympus. Recent PS Plus offerings for the Vita haven't been all that great, but this month definitely seems to make up for it. No word yet on when exactly these games will be going free, but expect to find them available on your Sony console of choice soon.
