June is a great month for PlayStation Plus subscribers. A mix of big-name games and indie favorites lead the charge for new games coming to the service.
Far Cry 6 is the latest game in the first-person shooter series, featuring Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito as the dictator of a fictional Caribbean island called Yara. Retro brawler Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, indie card game Inscryption and roguelike platformer Rogue Legacy 2 are some of the other quality titles heading to PS Plus on June 20.
Sony also confirmed in a blog post on Wednesday that it is testing cloud streaming support for PS5 games, allowing PS Plus subscribers to jump directly into a game instead of having to download it.

Here are some notable PlayStation Plus inclusions so far:
There are some notable games on this list, but it also lacks the blockbuster Day 1 vibe Xbox Game Passwhich has big debuts like Halo Infinite and the upcoming Starfield. Extra costs $15 per month, $40 for three months or $100 for a year. (In the UK it’s £11, £32 or £84 respectively, and in Australia it’s AU$19, AU$55 or AU$135.)
The more expensive Premium tier ($18 or £13.49 per month) also includes download and streaming access to around 500 older games, mostly from pre-PS4 consoles, most of which will run at 60fps. It also includes access to game demos. You can try games like Horizon: Forbidden West, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and Hot Wheels Unleashed. (Note: In Australia, the Premium level is called Deluxe and costs AUD$22 per month.)
One of the better aspects of the new PS Plus is that it has many cult and indie favorites in the Extra/Premium tier.
Here are some older or lesser known choices:
- Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories
- XCOM 2
- Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
- Pathfinder: Kingmaker
- Pillars of Eternity II
- South Park: The Stick of Truth
- Tetris effect
- Outer Wilds
I’ll update this list as more games are added and colleagues remind me of top-tier classics I’ve missed.
