It's the first Tuesday of the month, which means that the new slate of free games coming to PlayStation Plus for July 2022 are now available to download. Within the past week, Sony revealed the latest group of games for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 that would be free for PS Plus subscribers throughout the month. And in case you happened to miss this announcement, July is actually one of the stronger months that we've seen for PS Plus so far in 2022.
In total, three new games are coming to PlayStation Plus Essential in July, which is the name of the new baseline tier of Sony's service. Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is likely the most notable game of the bunch and will be available to snag natively for both PS5 and PS4. The co-op multiplayer shooter Arcadegeddon will then also be playable on these same platforms. Finally, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan rounds out this lineup and will be available via PS4. As a whole, this is a pretty good group of titles with each game providing a completely different experience compared to the other.
