Here’s your PS Plus: Free Games for July 2017

What’s up PlayStation Nation!

The Summer itself is a great time for gamers to try their best to catch up on their backlog of the holidays and or complete the usual start of the year AAA games. In the case of the month of July it seems to make that backlog a bit more extensive if you weren’t able to pick up this sleeper title back upon it’s first release. So with that being said let’s get the PS Plus selection. As reported via the PS Blog:

The free PlayStation Plus games for July are Until Dawn and Game of Thrones.

Until Dawn is a PlayStation exclusive survival horror adventure where eight friends are trapped together on a remote mountain retreat, and they aren’t alone. You can play as each of the eight characters and experience fear like never before, where every decision you make could mean the difference between life and death!

Next up, we have Telltale’s Game of Thrones series. You’ll get all six episodes, which follows the family of House Forrester as they survive (Or don’t?) the War of the Five Kings. Winter is Coming, and this is a great way to beat the summer heat.

Full Lineup

  • Until Dawn, PS4
  • Game of Thrones, PS4
  • Tokyo Jungle, PS3
  • Darkstalkers Resurrection, PS3
  • Element4l, PS Vita
  • Don’t Die, Mr. Robot, PS Vita (Cross Buy on PS4)

Bravo Team PSVR E3 2017 Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

PlayStation VR had a substantial presence during PlayStation’s E3 2017 press conference. One of the highlights for the PSVR games is being developed by Supermassive Games called Bravo Team. Bravo Team is a tactical cover-base first person shooter set to release at a To Be Announced(TBA) date. Even without a release date/window, this is a title PSVR owners should definitely keep their eyes on.

Features

  • TEAMWORK: Teamwork is at the core of the game. Bravo Team has been developed to allow both single player and online 2 player co-op. Player co-operation is key. Verbal communication between players is essential to make the decisions you need to survive and avoid (or navigate) enemy detection.
  • INTENSE IMMERSIVE ACTION: Bravo Team takes you on a heart-pumping journey of intense combat and split-second decision making. With the feel of an action movie, Bravo Team offers exciting combat situations, multiple scenario outcomes and a seamless, continuous environment to create a wholly immersive experience.
  • TOTAL CONTROL: Bravo Team puts you directly into the action. You’ll need to lean round corners to take out targets or duck for cover if under fire. You’ll raise the aim controller to view through the iron sight or hold above your head to blind fire.
  • DECISIONS UNDER FIRE: You’ll make constant split-second tactical decisions about when to take cover, when to reload and when to engage. Should you lay down suppressing fire or try a different route? Who takes that new weapon? Players will need to think fast and act quickly to survive.
